Gisa Golpira launched her namesake jewelry brand "Golpira" in 2014, after leaving behind a career as a fashion buyer and reconnecting with her roots. Gisa's mother was a gold diver in Peru, so the designer grew up in one of the most beautiful rainforests in the world. A small gold nugget pendant that Gisa's mother had given her as a precious talisman served as the ultimate inspiration for her jewelry line, which celebrates and honors the beauty of gold nuggets - a rare natural resource with inherent beauty that requires no intervention.
Golpira is committed to offering completely sustainable fine jewelry that will withstand the test of time. Golpira gold nuggets are certified fairmined ecological gold coming from Papua New Guinea and Australia. Each gold nugget is hand selected for its unique, individual characteristics and natural beauty.
IN HER WORDS
“I value and appreciate the beauty and rarity of gold nuggets. Each gold nugget looks different in shape and structure. The beauty lies in the imperfection. For me a gold nugget is truly a desirable object of mother nature. When I think about a gold nugget being more than a million years old, I get goosebumps.” - Gisa Golpira
WHAT WE LOVE
We were instantly drawn to the simple, clean and natural beauty of Gisa Golpira’s collection, but it was her story, one that is magically carried in her pieces, that really set the designer apart. Wearing a pure Golpira gold nugget that has purposely been left in its natural form instantly connects one to nature and the quiet beauty found only deep within the rainforest.
