The Story

ELYONA is a Hebraic word meaning "the highest, the best of best".
This refers to the jewelry I aim to create: The highest in design, creativity and style.
ELYONA launched in 2010 as a luxury fashion jewellery brand, from both London and Seoul.
My name is Leona and I was born in Seoul Korea. I spent my teenage years in Canada, and went to the U.K. to study jewellery design and creative art business at Central Saint Martins.

Since my nature is multicultural, I like to explore historic backgrounds from various cultures and merge them into my own style.
I like to research architecture, colours, costume, classic novels and religious information.
I believe all these interests are continuously building in me and my Korean background, along with Modernism from North America, and Stylisation from European culture that create a good mixture of cross deluxe.A unique piece that makes you unique.
Hope you can find your unique piece of ELYONA.
