The Inspiration

NAME ‘AYANA’ ORIGIN (AFRICAN-SOMALI): Meaning 'beautiful flower'

Ayana Jewellery is a lifestyle jewellery and fashion accessories brand for the young at heart, combining everyday staples alongside more detailed pieces to create the perfect collection from every day to that special occasion.

Originally from New Zealand, Lauren studied as a silversmith before venturing to London, to travel and be inspired by the world around her. After meeting Vincent and exploring the world further together one country at a time, they relocated to Sydney to start a new chapter, this is when Ayana Jewellery was reborn.

Each piece jewellery in the Ayana Jewellery range is handcrafted with love from start to finish, with each piece holding with its own uniqueness. Lauren designs her collections drawing from her own experiences in style, adapting it to the idea that jewellery is to be worn and enjoyed every day.

The Handmade Jewellery

Ayana Jewellery is a gorgeous selection of handcrafted sterling silver jewellery, including necklaces, bracelets, earrings and a popular stud range. Alongside the sterling silver, we have a beautiful new range “Ayana Luxe” range – the same beautifully finished jewellery in sterling silver, then plated in 14k Italian Rose Gold – for a little bit of luxury every day.

Ayana Jewellery strives for ethical, environmentally friendly and locally sourced where possible. Our products are designed and handmade from raw silver sourced from reputable Australian and British companies whom have strict standards such as ISO & Fairtrade. Striving to keep their environmental impact down by using 100% recycled silver when possible, creating the jewellery in a small eco-friendly studio with no harsh chemicals in the production process. All the jewellery is nickel free.

Our stacking rings are made from Argentium Silver, a brighter and whiter metal than Sterling and White Gold which doesn’t tarnish.

We aim to keep packaging minimal – the jewellery is packed in small pottles/tins or wrapped in acid free tissue paper. The packaging can be reused for storage of the jewellery and perfect for travelling.
