Creation, My Passion

The Story of the Designer

Hello! I’m Virginia – the jewelry designer, the photographer, the founder, and everything in between for MOONSOON.

Here is how it all began…

MOONSOON is the result of a profound personal and professional transformation. After a successful career in marketing, I decided 2011 to open my own jewelry store. Passionate about gemstones, I occasionally created necklaces for friends and clients. The success was immediate, and this was just the start of a journey that would take me much further.

A few years later, while exploring the Dharmavinaya (the teachings of Buddha), I learned to slow down, meditate, connect with nature, and savor each moment. This path led me to India, where I undertook a retreat in an Ashram. I was captivated by the country’s rich culture, its hospitality, and its deep spirituality.

This experience was a true revelation and inspired me to design meaningful jewelry, like talismans that remind one of what is truly essential, far from the chaos of today’s world.

This is how MOONSOON was born.

I love everything about jewelry creation. Selecting gemstones, finding components, arranging combinations, displaying collections and helping customers find their special pieces - it is such a joy-filled process for me.

A Story Behind Each Piece

Each piece is imbued with symbolism and inspiration from the fascinating culture of India. It invites you to slow down, savor the little things in life, and appreciate the beauty of the world around us.

MOONSOON is also a reflection of my personal journey. Each piece of jewelry is meant to remind you that life is an extraordinary journey, filled with discoveries and opportunities for transformation.

Dare to experience MOONSOON and uncover the hidden treasures within each piece. Be part of the MOONSOON world.

Gemstones are captivating to me. I simply love looking at them, touching them and observing their colour reflection. Unconsciously, it provides me a sense of inner peace and calmness.

The Making Of

Creativity begins with a spark of inspiration, like a shooting star igniting my imagination and prompting me to sketch small drawings on paper. Drawing by hand grants me total creative freedom. I can think about form, structure, and style for each piece, considering the meaning to imbue and which stones to associate for perfect harmony. Every element of the theme is explored and integrated into a thoughtful desgin.

Once my drawing is finalized, it goes to the skilled hands of artisans in India, that I have chosen for their exceptional craftsmanship and ancestral techniques, i.e. the setting of polkis and raw diamonds. I then select natural stones to integrate based on both their beauty and how well they fit into the jewelry’s design

When the handcrafted elements return from India, I combine them with the selected stones and assemble them by hand to create collections.

Each piece tells a unique story and carries the soul and passion of its creators.

Handcrafted with Passion & Love,
from my hands to your hands, Virginia
