Corazon Latino is a small family business. Just my sister Claire, my friend Earl and I, supported by an incredible group of people all over the world.
We started Corazon back in 2005 with just 20 designs, one Mexican silversmith, a beautiful girl we saw at a local gym as our model, and a determination to change the way jewellery was sold online.
Over the years, thanks to a loyal following around the world, the Corazon family has grown and grown.
We still work with our original model (who still looks fabulous despite 12 years and now being mother to a beautiful daughter), and the Mexican artisan who made our first 20 designs, but now we have over 250 designs, made exclusively for us in 8 different countries. We work directly with individual artisans and small workshops from Thailand to Tuscany, using Fairtrade principles to design and make our jewellery.
Despite being a bigger business these days, we still follow the same guiding principle: to give our customers the best quality, most unusual, handmade jewellery, and the most personal customer service possible.
12 years on, we still love what we do and we have a lot of fun doing it. We love working with such talented artisans and we love bringing a smile to the faces of our customers when they open their Corazon boxes.
Unusually for a predominantly women's silver jewellery website, over 75% of our customers are men. A few are buying for themselves (we do have some stunning cufflinks and chunky men's jewellery), but most are romantic & generous souls, looking for a perfect gift for the women in their lives (wives, girlfriends, daughters and even granddaughters). With that in mind, not only do we offer, great one on one advice and help choosing the perfect piece, we also offer gorgeous packaging, spectacular gift wrapping & an exceptionally fast order turnaround so every piece of Corazon jewellery looks great and arrives on time, even if you are one of those last minute men.

Who are the Corazon “Family”?
Without these wonderful people Corazon Latino would not exist. Each and every one plays an invaluable part in our success.
My sister Claire, who spends every day making sure our customers get exactly what they ordered, in perfect condition, and beautifully presented. Without her, we would never have got off the ground
Terri Bird, the beautiful "body" of Corazon Latino. We thank her for her patience, dedication and wonderful skin.
Rony Dagohoy, who, despite salt water, sand, and blinding sunlight, has made our men’s jewellery range look fabulous.
Photographers Andy Atkinson & Paul Frederick Choingson, the men who bring our jewellery to life.
Steve Younger, the man who helped us turn an idea into reality and who continues to help us nurture the Corazon Latino brand with his beautiful graphic designs.
Our wonderful artisans, too numerous to name individually, whose skill, creativity and attention to detail allow us to bring you such beautiful and unusual jewellery.
And me, founder, lover of all things sparkly, and the woman you'll talk to if you call.
Together, we are Corazon Latino.
