Our Story

The Brand          

Yuliya Chorna Jewellery creates one of a kind engagement rings, wedding bands and fine jewellery in Toronto, Canada. We focus on ethical sourcing, hand crafted quality and modern designs with an old world charm. Our bridal and everyday fine pieces feature one of a kind centre stones, unique textures and refined look. Made for the modern romantic.
Each piece is designed by Yuliya and handcrafted in our Toronto studio. In collaboration with best local master setters and casting houses, our jewellery is created to last and become your precious heirlooms. We believe jewellery should be made with great care and attention to detail from start to finish.  With comfort and longevity at the forefront of design, all textures and finishes are made with intention. 
Keeping production small scale, we offer limited Ready To Ship items when the rest of the collection pieces are Made To Order. We hope to minimize our environmental foot print and use resources to create only when we need them. We recycle all gold scraps and dust created during production and most sample pieces are recycled into new jewellery if not sold. 
All diamonds used  by Yuliya Chorna Jewellery are conflict free and fall under The Kimberely Process. We work with trusted gem suppliers who offer us responsibly sourced coloured gems. All of our small round diamonds are of Canadian origin. We also offer larger sized responsibly-mined Canadian diamonds for your custom projects.
