Elizabeth Buenaventura is an eponymous fine jewelry brand based in New York City. The collection is designed to ignite the adventurous, creative spirit in all of us.
By no coincidence, Buenaventura translates to “good adventure,” a quality that Elizabeth channels into every piece she designs. Her timeless and unique creations can be worn effortlessly - like a second skin accompanying the wearer on their day-to-day adventures. The jewels are made to be layered, stacked, mixed and matched. The result is collection with an inherent sense of experimentation, joyful freedom, and play that encourages the wearer to create their own personal collection that reflects their individuality.
Inspired by nature and travel, Elizabeth uses eco-friendly materials of the highest quality including 14 kt recycled gold, paired with ethically sourced precious stones such as colored diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and opals. Earrings are sold separately or as a pair, and necklaces can be customized with different charms to encourage a personalized and versatile look that can be worn in a myriad of different ways. All pieces are handmade with love in New York.
Elizabeth was born in Connecticut and raised in Chile. While studying Business Administration, she took a jewelry course at Academia de Alta Joyería, and there her love for fine handmade jewelry began. After finishing her Master’s in Consumer Behavior, Elizabeth flew to New York in 2010 with a suitcase and a dream. Shortly after her arrival, Elizabeth won first place for the CASE Awards of Jeweler’s of America and was nominated as a finalist in the Alternative Bridal Engagement 101 contest. In 2013 she launched her fine jewelry line. The collection is currently sold at luxury retailers nation wide.
