illi was founded in 2020 by a husband and wife team based in the UK. They had always wanted to create an environmentally and socially responsible business that had a deep purpose, rather than adding to an already-saturated consumer market with products that would be used for a short while and then discarded and replaced with the next new thing.
After a lot of research and discussing their individual passions, they knew that sustainably-produced fine jewellery ticked all the boxes.
After a year of research and development, illi’s debut collection launched in July 2021. Made with lab-grown diamonds and gemstones and 100% recycled metals, the collection comprises minimalist, timeless pieces that will hopefully remain with our customers for the entirety of their lives.
However, the hard work doesn’t stop…
We’re continually working hard to develop our range of high-quality jewellery and grow our brand.
We're a business working with integrity. As we move forward, we are guided by three main principles:
1. Always do what is right for people and planet, rather than for profit
2. Bring our customers high-quality, elegant jewellery without further compromising the Earth
3. Always make the most sustainable decision based on the knowledge and resources available to us at the time
We believe we’re part of a revolution happening in the jewellery industry and we are so excited for our customers to be a part of our history and our future.
