Founded & creatively directed by Henna Advani, Del Rio Jewels is a collection of timeless & colourful jewellery handmade in Turkey for women to love, layer & last. A cancer researcher by training, Henna decided to focus on motherhood when her son, Rio, was born. By self-admission, leaving a successful career in cancer research was not easy or desirable, but Henna cannot be happier & more proud of where she is today.
Wildly inspired by a wide array of life experiences, travel & exposure to different cultures, Henna found the need to create a jewellery brand that was both versatile & affordable for women of all backgrounds. Embodying her sense of style, Henna designs & sources jewellery from Turkey & is able to bring to life pieces that are both timeless & fun and made of 14K and 18K gold vermeil, and adorned in Swarovski stones.
The evil eye motif particularly resonates with Henna’s mystical personality and remains the centrepiece of many collections. The design of each piece is carefully thought out, with each piece being multifunctional, aiding in your seamless transitions from day to night. For example, Many of the earrings in her collection can be taken apart and worn as pendants & hair brooches. All of the pieces from the Tuyo Collection can be customised to showcase your unique style & personality.
Never one to overspend, Henna has curated her collection with a similar mindset allowing you to wear pieces alone, layered with others or paired with other jewels from your existing collection.
Del Rio Jewels has evolved from a passion project into a growing, successful homegrown business. From sourcing products & developing a website to modelling the products & shooting them herself, Henna has self-funded & creatively curated everything on her own.
