mallarino

Created by Colombian-born sisters Lucía and Isabella Bueno Mallarino, this brand features handmade jewelry that is crafted in the delicate filigree technique, a method that consists of hand-sewing the jewel with a gold thread. The sisters grew up in the Colombian city of Cali, known for its lush flora and fauna, and with each timeless Mallarino piece comes the suggestion of nature along with a contemporary touch. mallarino.com
