People have loved and cherished jewellery throughout history. It has been given as gifts and as a symbol of relationships. It is not just a beautiful accessory; it helps to identify a person, something that resonated with Jill McCrystal, founder of Jill McCrystal Jewellery for sometime before she decided to finally take a leap of faith and start her own business. Jill McCrystal’s mission is to open up the world of fine jewellery to everyone by offering only the finest quality precious gemstone jewellery, at great prices, handmade with love.
About Jill McCrystal
Before Jill McCrystal Jewellery was created, Jill described herself as just “your ordinary natural girl” with no thought of adornment. Then one day a conversation with a friend who enjoyed the same outdoor activity as her, led to Jill creating a bespoke piece of jewellery for herself, a necklace depicting her greatest love, trail running. As others noticed Jill’s necklace, she then went on to make pendants for friends who wore them to sporting events. Soon more requests came from friends of friends and even event coordinators who commissioned Jill to make pendants for their race winners.
With more and more requests for different designs from both home and abroad, Jill finally made the decision in 2015 to officially launch her online jewellery business and the response so far has been incredible! In fact, Jill McCrystal Jewellery has received a lot of attention, not to mention press! Jill’s pieces are now regularly featured in top fashion and lifestyle publications including Vogue, Glamour and Brides Magazine.
