White Gold Favourites

April 13, 2018

Are you a gold or white gold or lover? When you buy any solid gold piece from Chupi, you have not only a tiny piece of our beautiful island but a future heirloom that will become part of your story. Yellow gold has long been the traditional choice for precious engagement and wedding rings because of its everlasting beauty and inherent value. Since the 1990’s, white gold has increased in popularity for all types of jewellery and engagement rings.

We create magical pieces of jewellery that mark the most special occasions, so it’s incredibly important to us that our packaging reflects this too and even adds to the experience.  We believe that presentation is particularly important when it comes to online shopping. When you open your package, you’ll be seeing your purchase for the first time and so it should make a real impact. If you’ve

At the end of March, we travelled to Nairobi with the wonderful people in Proudly Made in Africa to work with brilliant designers who will be showcasing in our store Atrium this summer. Having grown up in such a green country I thought I knew beauty, but Nairobi is such a gorgeous place, the country is so lush and tropical!
