Our Story

Valerene Bespoke Jewellery is a small business owned by Valerene Chin, based in Wollongong, NSW, Australia.

Having seen what is offered in retail stores in different countries, Val thought that fine jewellery needed more versatility, and set out to design interchangeable pieces for herself. Things picked up from there when friends and family started asking for personal pieces to be designed for them. Soon, she found herself with discerning clients who value clever designs.

In her dealings with clients, Val is upfront about what can and cannot be achieved. Clients are guided with accurate information so they make informed purchases. Realistic turnaround times for each customised piece is given, and they are always delivered in a timely manner. This is especially important if you have a tight dateline to that special event!

Val also has a soft spot for pearls. Val is a bit of a purist and sources only treatment-free pearls. She stocks South Sea Pearls and akoya pearls. Her white pearls are produced by Paspaley in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. The golden pearls she stocks are normally produced by Jewelmer in the Philippines, and occasionally she stocks golden pearls from Indonesia. The akoya pearls she stocks are unbleached, with natural colours such as silvery blue, cream and grey, with pink, green or silver overtones.
