I was born in a small Ukrainian village and, as a child, my family and I moved to Portugal looking for the stability that Ukraine could not guarantee. Years later I packed my bags, moved to NYC (USA) and changed my life.

I realized jewelry can be powerful and inspiring, when we care about where it comes from and where it’s going.

Still, it was hard for me to pick the right piece of jewelry, mainly because I viewed it as something that was more than just an accessory. I wanted to see a special meaning within that piece. I wanted to see its background and I wanted it to inspire me in some way.

On the other hand, I’ve wanted to inspire women my whole life. It always hurt me to see a woman diminish herself in order to be liked and accepted. Being less ambitious, less successful, less demanding of recognition, and less of herself.

I’ve always believed that women are powerful and that we make brave choices that define our unique lives. That being said, Wonther was born.

Each piece of Wonther Jewelry is the personification of a woman’s ambitions, achievements, and uniqueness. A constant reminder of her strength and the right to choose a unique journey. Wonther is a celebration of a powerful life, whatever that means to each woman.
