In 2009, Milina went back into studying, this time at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in London, and qualified as an Accredited Jewellery Professional (AJP). Initially, Milina travelled extensively, meeting artisans in India and Mexico, selling their rare finds to jewellery stores in London. But soon she started creating her own designs, cultivating these same relationships by involving the artists in the manufacturing process, and taking inspiration from the London jewellery designers that surrounded her as well as her travels all over the world. Her creations started selling more extensively throughout the UK. With time and lots of hard work, excitement and fun, the brand – Milina London – was born.
Today, Milina London revolves around sourcing, designing and making beautiful, timeless jewellery using mainly sterling silver, natural stones and freshwater pearls. We also offer a bespoke service for special creations using gold and precious stones such as diamonds or emeralds. We work directly with artisans and sometimes small co-operative workshops to ensure quality, and to handpick the best designs for you. Every piece of jewellery is hand-checked by Milina personally before it is sold. Milina London has enabled many small, remote artisans to reach a much wider audience and share a wonderful heritage of skills from around the world. We believe the craftsmanship is clear to see in each piece and we hope you enjoy wearing our creations as much as we love designing and sourcing them.
