New UK ethical brand will sponsor hospitality at event on September 6.
Chavin Jewellery, which brands itself as the UK’s first design-led 100% ethical jewellery brand has been announced as as hospitality sponsor of the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 party on September 6.
Managing director, Simon Ogilvie-Harris said of the new sponsorship: “We are delighted to be part of one of the most prestigious events in the jewellery industry. We are unveiling our brand at the IJL and felt that the Hot 100 was a perfect platform to support our launch."
The brand is named after the Chavin (pronounced sha-veen), an ancient Peruvian civilization that developed highly skilled techniques in metallurgy producing refined precious metal work. Their rich and vibrant culture held the jaguar sacred as a symbol of strength.
Chavin’s first collection, Antiquity, has been designed by previous Professional Jeweller Hot 100 NextGem Ana De Costa and features oxidised sterling silver and gold vermeil pieces set with black diamonds and rubies.
The company was founded and led by Ogilvie-Harris, who is passionate about providing jewellery that is not only, luxurious, feminine and easy to wear but that is 100% ethically produced. Each part of the process and every material has been carefully researched and selected based upon the ethical credentials without compromising finish or quality.
Every time a piece of Chavin Jewellery is sold it will donate money to communities in Peru, in partnership with world renowned charity SOS Children.
