Grinning chameleons, bejewelled beetles, dinosaur skeletons and punky Aztec dancers are just some of the characters you can find in Daniela Villegas wide and wonderful world of jewellery. The Mexican-born jeweller brings an eclectic and vibrant mix of influences to her one-of-a-kind jewels that combine whimsy with beautiful, vividly hued gemstones. A touch of magic surrealism, a dash of latin defiance and a large dose of humour make Daniela’s jewel a unique fusion of global cultures.

Now based in Los Angeles, Daniela finds joy in revealing a world where chubby caterpillars become rings, dodo birds come to life as earrings and ruby-set beetles carry poetry engraved into their thorax. Daniela’s jewels with a quirky soul appeal to the boho-chic Hollywood crowd, ever on the search for objects with a story to tell.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
