My #TinyPreciousMoments by Chupi Sweetman

April 07, 2020

Hi everyone, I know this year might not be exactly how you planned it, it certainly feels different, but I wanted to celebrate the tiny precious moments in life that bring us joy everyday. For most of us the last few weeks have meant a lot more time at home, if you aren’t on the frontline all we are being asked to do is stay home. For me, there aren’t bad days, just difficult moments in the day. There are as many good moments and that’s what gets me through it all. Whether it’s a gorgeous homemade lunch or a sunny walk, I would love to see your #TinyPreciousMomentsLove, Chupi x

Over the past couple of weeks, we've been adjusting to the new normal with the entire of the Chupi Team working from home for the foreseeable future.

Happy International Women’s Day from Chupi Sweetman

March 06, 2020

It's crazy to think that even today in 2020 women still face discrimination, from the glass ceiling to the pay gap I think it's so important we recognise there is still gender based discrimination and celebrate the incredible women in our lives. International Women's Day is a wonderful chance to not only tell the women in our lives we love them, but to look around us and see what we can do to build a fairer world. I hope our daughters, and indeed our sons, will have a far more equal experience. We are brought up to understand that if we really truly want something you have to fight hard for

Meet Ann, our brilliant Financial Controller here at Chupi. We hear the stories behind Ann’s most loved pieces, including her Darling in the Wild Emerald Me to Me Ring and her most loved heirloom rings.

Before I started working with Chupi, I had four gold rings which I wore every day. Gold is so hard wearing yet so beautiful it can be worn everywhere, every day. My oldest ring is my Claddagh ring, given to me by my Godmother and my mother’s bridesmaid Nan,
