About us

Sydney jewellery designer & jeweller Maria Lizunova, Sydney jeweller Lizunova Fine Jewels, Chifley Square

A Sydney jeweller designer creating contemporary heirlooms

With each piece of jewellery 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.

We are a local, family jeweller passionately committed to high quality, ethical, sustainable manufacturing practices as well as building lifelong relationships with our customers.  

Our brand founder, Maria Lizunova, started her jewellery design practice nearly two decades ago, when she was still pursuing a career in graphic design and advertising. As Maria's obsession with jewellery and gemstones grew, she plucked up the courage to dedicate herself to jewellery design full time, and in 2012 established her eponymous jewellery brand. Maria is focused on purity of design and meticulous quality of each jewel the brand produces - it has to be an elegant presence yet respond to practical considerations such as wearability and comfort. Maria takes a personalised approach to designing bespoke jewellery for customers, both in Australia and overseas, and is available for one-on-one consultations in person or via Zoom, phone and email.

Our jewels have been featured in various publications, such as AFR Magazine, Weekend Australian, Ellements Magazine (USA), Sunday Telegraph, Ben & Co and worn on air by Channel Ten's Sandra Sully and SBS's Janice Peterson. 

Each Lizunova jewel is meticulously handcrafted by our expert jewellers in Sydney, using ethical Australian-made gold, silver and platinum and hand-picked coloured gemstones and conflict-free diamonds sourced from trusted local suppliers. We invite you to visit our jewellery store: Shop UG.07, Chifley 2 Chifley Square Sydney NSW 2000 or book a bespoke jewellery design consultation, either in person or via Zoom.

Inspiration

Maria's Russian heritage, with its opulent art, architecture and jewellery, is a strong influence on her work, balanced by her love of geometry, clean design and Modernist and Art Deco architecture. Our impeccably crafted jewels explore 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, women's wedding rings, men's 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

Our jewellery is ethically handcrafted in Sydney, Australia by experienced master jewellers who translate Maria's designs to impeccably made jewellery pieces. 

We use handpicked natural gemstones that come from trusted local suppliers. If required, 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.
