With sustainability at its heart, Ziorva is an ethical fine jewellery brand for the modern woman. A woman with both style and substance. A woman who values quality materials and expert craftsmanship. A woman who cares about how things are made and the impact of all our actions on the environment.
Raised in Ireland, Lorna Gaughan (Ziorva’s founder) was fortunate to be surrounded by the most beautiful, natural landscape. Vast skies, wild seas and rolling hills have all given her inspiration. She hopes future generations can similarly enjoy nature in all its splendour. To do this, she feels we must all do our bit for the environment. For her, this meant creating precious pieces of jewellery which wouldn’t damage our planet or the people on it. Pieces that were designed to last, made precious through their form and content. With this in mind, she named her company “Ziorva”, which means “graceful gold”. It is derived from “Zi”, a name of Chinese origin which means “graceful” and “Orva” which means “worth gold” in French.
Every Ziorva piece is designed and crafted right here in the UK to reduce carbon footprint and ensure high quality standards of production. Items are purposefully cast from recycled gold to minimise adverse impact on the environment. Each gemstone is responsibly cut and hand-selected for its radiance and meaning. Only conflict-free diamonds feature which adhere to the Kimberley Process. Even the Ziorva gift boxes have been specially crafted from FSC certified card to ensure our forests are protected for future generations.
Entitled “Skyset”, the first collection takes its inspiration from the skyline. Architectural outlines against the backdrop of dynamic skies. Mesmerising shades of pink and blue that illuminate the sky as the sun rises and sets. From daybreak blue to dusk pink and twilight pink to midnight blue, each Ziorva piece reflects a glimpse of that captivating sky. All elegantly captured in geometric forms. Featuring gemstones imbued with meaning and radiance, this is a collection to inspire and empower.
All Ziorva jewellery is crafted right here in the UK. This ensures that the finest quality materials are used, and fair production methods are in place. It also minimises carbon footprint. The gold used in the casting process by Ziorva is 100% recycled, 9ct solid gold (with the option to create bespoke items in 14ct or 18ct recycled gold). It is cast with the utmost care in a boutique facility in the UK. The recycled gold is sourced from a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council who only uses “conflict-free” minerals, ensuring that the recycled gold is produced in a socially correct as well as ethically & environmentally sound manner. Any additional solid gold components required to finalise Ziorva designs are also responsibly sourced.
Once the items are cast, expert craftsmen in London’s iconic Hatton Garden carefully finish and polish each piece. Each gemstone is set by hand with the utmost care and precision. Gemstones have been responsibly cut and are hand selected for their radiance and meaning. They are sourced
