a story about...



    We are Joana and Alexandre, and our heritage has inspired us to create something truly special.

    We are delighted to share our story with you.

    Our story dates back to 1955...
    in the heart of Gondomar, a town steeped in Portuguese jewelry craftsmanship.

    It all began when our grandfather, José, established a modest jewelry workshop. Little did we know that this beginning would shape the course of our family's history.

    Years passed, and our mother, Rosa Amélia, became one of the few women in jewelry distribution. Her pioneering spirit deepened our family's love for jewelry-making, evolving it into a cherished legacy. In 2017, we, Joana and Alexandre, the third generation, embraced this legacy, bringing to life Portugal Jewels.

    Our passion for preserving Portuguese traditions inspired us to breathe new life into traditional jewelry design, with a modern touch. At Portugal Jewels, our purpose is simple: to create jewelry that embodies Portugal's essence. Each piece carries stories, from the symbolism it holds to the expert craftsmanship behind it.

    We believe our jewelry lets you wear history and make your own. Each piece captures moments and emotions, becoming a part of your unique story. 

    Join us on this journey to discover the essence of Portuguese jewelry, where each piece is a timeless treasure.
