Crafting excellence: Liry’s Jewellery journey into art

Screenshot 20231005 213531

Two years ago, an enthusiastic and determined Liry’s Jewellery embarked on a remarkable journey. Confident in their vision, they invested heavily in machinery and skilled jewellers to craft their own Cuban link chains right in their store. This was a significant milestone, validating their initial decision to offer these chains. Their popularity had soared, and this investment marked a proud moment that filled them with excitement for their future in the jewellery business. Liry’s love affair with gold, the material they prefer to work with, is steeped in personal history and practicality. They grew up with gold, appreciating its timeless beauty and value as an asset. Gold, they believe, is perhaps the only luxury item one can purchase, enjoy for years, and then resell at a price close to its original cost. In a world where many choose the path of least resistance, this company takes the road less traveled. They refuse to cut corners, prizing quality above all else. They source their chains and bracelets directly from Italy, renowned for its exquisite craftsmanship. Over the years, they have made multiple trips to Italy, meeting with manufacturers to ensure that they are sourcing the best. Liry’s Jewellery commitment to quality sets their jewellery apart. Their handmade Cuban link chains, crafted in-house, boast perfect karat purity. In fact, they often go above and beyond the required karat to provide their customers with the best value. They spent significant time and money finding the right Italian manufacturer, even when each “minimum” order typically costs around $10,000 or… Read More
