What is a jewel? For some, it can be a treasure. For others, a piece or accessory of clothing, and for others, it can reflect a feeling, which can be immortalized or perpetuated in the expert hands of a jeweler or goldsmith.
The Colombian-Venezuelan jewelry designer with Italian roots Carolina Arcieri, is the owner of an extraordinary gift: she is able to translate her feelings into metal. She has always had the desire to create and touch lives, which she has been doing since she registered her company and her homonymous brand Carolina Arcieri Joyas.
At the beginning, Carolina managed a chain of hairdressing salons and even though she had a successful business, she felt that something was missing. She started selling silver and gold jewelry in her beauty salons to her clients, and with time she became more and more involved in the jewelry industry to the point of selling her chain of hairdressing salons and leaving to Italy to study jewelry design.
Carolina also runs a jewelry academy called the Carolina Arcieri Jewelry Academy where she trains entrepreneurs with a vision based on global innovation in the design and manufacturing of jewelry encouraging them to transform their passion for jewelry into something bigger. The academy’s training covers operational and commercial areas.
As a designer, Carolina is passionate and sensitive. From the first moment of creation of a piece, she looks for each piece to tell the story that comes from the heart of each client. This turns each piece into a personal, refined, unique, and unrepeatable jewel. It is this level of dedication to detail in each piece that becomes the heart of Carolina’s brand.
From the very beginning, Carolina’s brand has had a soul, a high sense of social commitment, and a growing interest in listening to their customers, to transform their feelings and emotions in the metal.
The brand is a registered trademark in over 20 countries, and after 16 years in the world of glitter and metals, it has become a name that means quality, innovation, confidence, and design.
Carolina’s last collection was “Fusion,” which opened the doors to the idea that would become the heart of her brand. Her clients loved her work so much that they started to ask for accessories and other different pieces–this is how Carolina discovered that people wanted pieces to tell a story that goes beyond the jewel itself.
In the near future, Carolina will be working on her Jewelry Design Academy, which just opened doors to students in 2019. The academy provides 360 degrees knowledge, and it is an academic opportunity to create a real business from the passion of jewelry design.
At this moment, Carolina is also in the process of making Carolina Arcieri a jewel design firm with franchises in different parts of the world, since they want to offer their customers a much closer experience.
