But this is how it all started:
Silvana, the founder, was born and bred in Paris, France. Her taste and lifestyle has always been strongly influenced by the French capital city, where fashion and trends are a key element to the Parisian culture. As a child, she spent her weekends from market to market in Paris, admiring the stunning gemstones that Parisian shops and markets had to offer, and gazing at the latest jewellery designers’ creations. Silvana always had an eye for styling and advising family and friends, especially regarding jewellery, as she believes that there is a very special piece or gemstone waiting for each person. After a few International Degrees, she was ready to fly to the Emerald Green Island that is Ireland as her next adventure. She literally fell in love with Dublin, and thought that the only way to make it seem more like home, was to bring with her, her true passion: gemstone jewellery.
Silvana had to pick and bring her first pieces to Ireland a few years ago, which she did with all her passion and attention to detail, only gathering pieces she truly fell in love with. After 5 years dealing with jewellery and gemstones, she officially started a new chapter: Jewels & Gems’ online shop!
When she’s not travelling to source new gemstones, you can spot her most of the time in her retail shop on St Andrews street in Dublin, displaying her newest pieces that she would have handpicked personally with lots of love, piece by piece, in her beloved treasure-trove.
