The Australian jewellery label Luca Jouel has been on my radar for a few years now. Designer Tereena Lucas has a way of amazing me with every collection, and I’m like a moth to a flame when one of her rings are in the room. To describe Tereena’s style in one word is impossible, but in three; effortless, timeless, healing.
As a self-taught designer and a passionate lover of fine jewellery, Tereena is inspired by all things natural, antique and architectural, and her mission is about more than just translating inspiration through her quality craftsmanship. She values longevity, and each Luca Jouel piece is designed to be treasured for a lifetime and handed down as an heirloom.
Tereena isn’t concerned with following trends or designing jewellery that fits into the ordinary fashion mould either. Instead, she consciously designs statement pieces that fuse responsibly-sourced rare and unusual diamonds and gemstones with mixed precious metals.
As a brand, Luca Jouel is committed to social and environmental change, and each piece is ethically made by her team of expert artisans, supporting fair trade and ensuring strict labour and safety practices. Luca Jouel diamonds are sourced from reputable suppliers who comply with Kimberly Process Certification, and as a gemmologist, Tereena is a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Australia (FGAA).
Luca Jouel is a fine jewellery brand with social and environmental values at its core, and the latest collection is a testament to Tereena’s romantic aesthetic. Offering an exploration of beauty and texture, the latest range of ethical jewellery features coloured gemstones taken from Tereena’s private collection, and it reflects emotions and memories of a well-travelled life.
