CHAVIN…a jewellery brand with a conscience

Chavin Jewellery

Everything about Chavin’s collection of jewellery is vibrant, from its colourful Caring Bracelets to the multi coloured (and eco- friendly) packaging, making this collection perfect for the summer!

Each piece of jewellery is available in sterling silver or rose gold with designs inspired by the rich mythology and culture of Peru. The beautiful Jaguar collection has taken the silhouette jaguar head logo of the brand and fashioned it into feminine and quirky designs with unique earring and necklace sets, whilst the Heart collection brings a touch of romance with simple silhouette hearts as well as delicate filigree pendants. But our favourite of the moment has to be the friendship bracelets! Whether worn solo or stacked up on the wrist, Chavin’s brightly coloured Caring Bracelets are the perfect way to add a splash of colour and festival chic to your outfit. Each colour is named after a Peruvian mother who directly benefits from the sale of each bracelet.

Chavin has partnered with the international charity SOS Children who provide support for orphans and vulnerable children. By supporting the family strengthening programme in Northern Lima, Chavin are helping mothers and their families torn apart by poverty. So do your bit for charity whilst looking fabulous with Chavin’s collection of Caring Bracelets!
