About us

We love creating jewellery that our customers love to wear, today and for generations to come. We are a family business, so value family and relationships, and believe in marriage and equality – crafting jewellery pieces that hold sentimental value is of great importance to us. We're bold and obsessed with clean design, high quality craftsmanship and beautiful gemstones. 

With each jewel we design and make, our aim is to create a beautiful and unforgettable piece, of value and soul. Jewellery that evokes real emotion and real connection.

Our brand is independent and was founded in 2012 by designer Maria Lizunova, who changed her career from graphic design and advertising to jewellery design, to follow a life-long obsession with gems and jewellery. Each Lizunova jewel is designed by Maria and ethically crafted by meticulous, professional jewellers in Sydney, using a range of traditional and modern techniques. Our Sydney CBD jewellery store is located at  Chifley Plaza, 2 Chifley Square.

Inspiration

Sophisticated simplicity expressed in beautiful design, hand picked natural coloured gems and diamonds, and impeccable craftsmanship are at the heart of our brand ethos. Our pieces are limited edition and many are bespoke or made to order, ensuring the best possible quality and attention to detail.

Maria's Russian heritage, with its opulent art, architecture and jewellery, is a strong influence on her work, balanced by her love of clean lines. Each of our impeccably crafted jewels explores the tension between opulence and simplicity, symmetry and asymmetry, joyful exuberance of hand-picked gems and elegance of sculptural forms.

"I aim to harmonise and balance the restraint of clean lines with lusciousness and exuberance of gems, reaching for an internal response that resonates. 

"My goal is to make each piece an elegant wearable sculpture, a statement, that emotionally resonates with the wearer. The physicality of each piece, expressed through the shape, weight and size of materials, plays an important role in establishing an intimate connection with the wearer."

Alongside our collections, we design and make bespoke engagement rings, wedding rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and dress rings. We can source and custom cut practically any coloured gem or diamond. Drop us a line to enquire.

Craftsmanship

All of our jewellery is ethically made in Sydney by experienced master craftsmen who translate Maria's designs to impeccably made jewellery pieces.

We use hand-picked natural gemstones that come from ethical suppliers. We can source and custom cut top quality coloured gemstones and diamonds for your bespoke jewellery pieces. We also offer remodelling of existing jewellery using customers' gems and metal – a wonderful way to maintain a connection with a sentimental piece of jewellery in a contemporary new design.
