Meet the Founder
The namesake Antonia Y Jewelry was founded by Australian-born Antonia Yue, a jewellery designer with a passion for incorporating natural elements and timeless fashion.
"I have always been drawn to the beauty of gemstones, their raw expression and unique nature are truly one-of-a-kind. I was inspired to craft adornments using these semi-precious stones, that I now share with you. The natural elements used in our jewelry express bold and vibrant energy, styled in classic and timeless fashion."
– Antonia Yue, Founder, Antonia Y Jewelry.
