Get to Know Donna Chambers

The Dish On... No Comments »

One of our favorite designers here at Elisa Ilana is Donna Chambers. Why do we love her pieces, you ask? We love them because they are unique and beautiful of course!

The Donna Chambers collection is created by a team of four people right from the Donna Chambers Design Studio. They all bring different skill sets and experiences to the collection. Each piece from Donna Chambers is made from Antique Chinese gambling chips...how cool is that?!

Many of these gamling chips were custom-made at the request of British nobility and feature family crests. Donna's jewelry has been shown at the Smithsonian Institute and the Boston Museum of Art.

Along with each piece being made from these chips, there is also a specific process to hand-fabricating each one. They first start with their building technique which is what they call their "wire work". The wire work is the foundation to each piece. They then move to pearling, and then to stamping with the Donna Chambers DC logo. To ensure that each piece is authentic, they also include a certificate of authenticity that tells you all about the history of your Antique Chinese gambling chip!

Elegant Pearls for June

The Dish On... No Comments »

Galatea Diamonds in a Pearl NecklaceWe love showing off our pearly white, pearls, and our Galatea pearls! All of the June babies are SO lucky! You get spoiled with GORGEOUS Galatea pearls for your birthday!

Galatea pearls are the perfect gift! Not only are they unique but absolutely beautiful!

What makes Galatea pearls different from any other pearls?

Galatea is known for their exquisite collections of both hand-carved pearls and the use of gemstones embedded into their carved pearls. It's quite remarkable how they create these pieces of jewelry.

They place gemstones inside of an oyster shell and let nature take over!

The pearls grow around the gemstones and after harvesting the pearls, the carving experts begin their masterful work.

Each pearl is carved down just enough to allow the stones to peek through and also create a beautiful design in the pearl.

As you can see from the pictures it's hard not to fall in love with these pieces!

Don't wait to get a piece from Galatea to show your someone special that she is just as perfect as when you met her! Seriously, we know you love these as much as we do!

William Henry Knife

Looking for the perfect gift for dad or hubby?

Give him the gift of William Henry hand-crafted artistry. We all know how hard our men work at home and at work so why not give them a William Henry pocket knife to make them feel EXTRA special!

William Henry knives begin as just a sketch before they come to life. There are over 800 procedures done by 30 William Henry artisans before these knives can be taken home. Not to mention that it takes eight months for these exquisite pieces of art to be completed! That's a sure sign of quality craftmanship!

Every blade is hand ground, each frame is cut by machine, carving and engraving is all done by hand, and every piece is put together with careful, steady hands to create the perfect piece.

Every William Henry knife is engraved with a serial number and logo so every knife has its own story.

Soldier to Soldier
Happy Memorial Day! We want to thank all of the Men and Women, who serve our country so selflessly.

Here at Elisa Ilana, we are proud to carry From Soldier To Soldier bracelets. These bracelets are a designer version of the survival bracelets worn by many U.S. and allied soldiers around the world.

Homes for Our TroopsThe construction of these bracelets is from tightly braided parachute cord with different style designer clasps. All From Soldier To Soldier bracelets are made and assembled from materials in the USA. With the purchase of a bracelet, $20 of every purchase is donated to Homes for Our Troops assisting wounded Veterans and their families.

The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the Veterans they serve. Homes for Our Troops is strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001. Homes for Our Troops raises donations of money, building materials and professional labor and coordinates the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently.
