Meet JoAnn, Digital Marketing Specialist here at Chupi. Having been a Chupi fan long before she started working at Chupi, JoAnn has the most gorgeous collection of pieces. We hear the stories behind JoAnn’s most loved pieces, including her You Me & Magic Grey Diamond engagement ring handpicked by her partner, Alex.

Everyone knows if I am wearing jewellery, it’s Chupi. I have a few Chupi pieces at this stage, but the piece which means the most to me has to be my You, Me & Magic Engagement Ring.

I also adore We Are All Made of Stars Necklace, Solid Gold Eternity Huggies and Solid Gold Diamond Eternity Huggies. The incredible thing about solid gold is that you can shower, workout or sleep in your jewellery and it never loses its shine!

My You, Me & Magic Grey Diamond Ring is absolutely the piece which means the most to me. I didn’t know how I felt about tradition, but when my boyfriend (now fiancée) got down on one knee and asked me to marry him on top of a mountain in Wicklow I knew it was perfectly us.

I realised how much thought and excitement had gone into choosing the perfect piece for me and how hard the whole experience must’ve been for him! He chose the You, Me & Magic Grey Diamond Ring flanked by two classic diamonds on a gold polished band. He chose the most gorgeous sparkling grey diamond too!

My We Are All Made of Stars Necklace was the first solid gold piece I bought myself when I started working in Chupi and I haven’t taken it off since. I’m a Taurus which means I am practical, well-grounded and stubborn! The moment I heard that Chupi was making huggies, I knew I needed them! I just couldn’t choose so I decided to treat myself to both. I really wanted the earrings to hug my ear so I went with the tiny size for both piercings. I’m considering a third piercing just to fit in another pair of Chupi earrings! 

I have so many Chupi pieces on my wishlist but my ultimate wishlist piece has to be the Crown of Hope. I’ve obviously tried it on multiple times and some day it will sit so beautifully as a wedding ring with my You, Me & Magic engagement ring.
