Whether it’s a week by the beach or a month-long adventure to far-off lands, a change of scenery is always welcome.
A love of travel and exploring the world around us inspired our founders to create illi, with each of our sustainably made pieces named for a place that is close to their hearts.
All our fine jewellery is made from high-quality materials - 100% recycled solid precious metals and lab-grown gemstones. We designed each and every piece to be durable and suitable for daily wear. Unlike costume jewellery, our fine jewellery won’t tarnish, making it perfect for travelling with.
Below, we’ll share a few of our favourite pieces that will make excellent travelling companions this summer:
First up, our beloved Bondi hoops. Named for the famous beach in Sydney, Australia, these simple gold hoops are one of our most versatile pieces. Made from 100% recycled 14k yellow gold, the lightweight yet hardwearing Bondi hoops will be a staple of your travelling wardrobe. Pairing effortlessly with board shorts or a cocktail dress, this is the only pair of hoops you’ll need on your travels.
Shop our Bondi hoops.
From emerald seas to blazing sunsets, the beauty of the Aruba necklace captures it all. Featuring a lab-grown alexandrite, which changes colour (or so it appears) from vibrant green to deep red and purple, depending on what light you view it in, the Aruba necklace is one of a kind. With a recycled 14k yellow gold chain and setting evoking golden beaches, you’ll have sun, sea and sand all in one gorgeous piece.

Another classic staple, our Cambridge three and four-pronged studs will elevate any traveller’s style. Recycled 14k gold set with a stunning lab-grown diamond, these sophisticated studs will add sparkle wherever you go. We think everyone needs a go-to pair of studs. This hardwearing, eco-friendly set should be top of your packing list.
Shop our Cambridge three-prong studs and our Cambridge four-prong studs.
A glittering lab-grown diamond set in 14k recycled yellow gold on a charming yet sturdy gold chain, the Cambridge necklace - like the Cambridge studs - is a stylish staple that will complete any outfit with a little luxury. Catch it glinting in the sunlight as you make your way from one new adventure to the next. A timeless piece. Bring this with you and you’ll never be out of style.

For moonlit nights in faraway places, add a touch of romance with our Lucca studs. Made from 100% recycled solid 14k yellow gold, these crescent studs are elegant and fun. Another piece that will withstand daily wear without tarnishing. Perfect for a night out under the stars exploring Florence or an afternoon wandering the sunkissed vineyards of Montalcino.
