Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost Collection
The ‘Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost Collection’ is inspired by those brilliant words of JRR Tolkein, “Not all those who wander are lost”. Home is a precious feeling, our travels can take us all over the world but carrying the coordinates of a somewhere special with you means you can always take a piece of home with you.
Chupi designed this collection to mark our favourite places, your necklace will be hand engraved with the coordinates you choose. Whether it’s the coordinates of your family home, a bridge over the River Seine in Paris where you had your first kiss, your favourite beach or a precious place that always makes you feel at home, we love making these darlings just for you.
We asked the Chupi team what coordinates they will get on their Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost necklace and why:

I’ll have my coordinates necklace engraved with the coordinates from my favourite beach in Sydney, where I lived for almost eight years. It was such a huge part of my life. Although I’m home almost two years I still miss the beautiful coastal walk I used to do every other weekend. I remember reading a quote that sums up the reality of living abroad for so long: “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” Having those coordinates means I can always carry a little piece of this special place with me, despite it being on the other side of the world.

My favourite place in the world is a tiny island called Ios in Greece. It’s the most beautiful island with the clearest blue seas and the most amazing, relaxing atmosphere. It’s a typical Greek Island, gorgeous white buildings with blue roofs and tiny churches everywhere. You can quad from one side of the island to the other in 40 minutes, taking in the most incredible views of the Aegean Sea along the way. I have so many happy memories from this pretty little island with my closest friends and I love the idea of always carrying them with me with the Not All Those Who Wander are Lost necklace.

The coordinate bracelet is one of my favourite pieces from the new Chupi SS19 Collection. I love how jewellery can become so personal, as no one else in the entire world will choose the same coordinates as you for the same reason. I would like to have my coordinate bracelet engraved with the coordinates of Lyon, France. I studied French as part of my undergraduate degree and at 20, I moved to Lyon to study French on my own. I want my bracelet to remind me of how fearless and passionate I was and how I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.

I’m going to have the coordinates of my family home in Galway engraved on my Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost Coordinate Necklace. I moved away almost 10 years ago but I still call Galway home in a quiet little village in the countryside. I love spending time with my family and friends when I am in Galway. I don’t get home as often as I would like, so I love the idea of carrying a piece of home with me everywhere I go.

I want to have my necklace engraved with the coordinates of the Tokyo Metropolitan Building observatory in Tokyo, which is the first place I visited on my solo trip to Japan last year. Visiting Japan had been on my bucket list for so long and I never imagined being able to do it so soon and by myself. I’ll always remember that feeling when I looked at the Tokyo skyline after almost 30 hours of no sleep and it was something unique that stuck with me. I’d love to have those coordinates on me always, and hopefully I’ll be able to share that experience with my loved ones some day.
