My intention is to show a different facet of Peruvian artistry, which I consider to be dynamic. It is handcrafted, original and of good quality."
Claudia Llaury was born in the Callao province of Peru on December 14, 1971. "I worked in marketing, because it allowed me to develop my creative side," admits Claudia.
"I have always had what I term 'creative restlessness.' I used to daydream about new shapes and color combinations, but I hadn't considered developing my artistic instincts any further. Then, in 2005, I realized I just had to develop this side of me. I also counted with the full support of my husband and relatives.
"Expert silversmiths help me translate my designs into extraordinary jewelry pieces. Together we look at what is trendy, but our ideas come from our own creativity.
"My intention is to show a different facet of Peruvian artistry, which I consider to be dynamic. It is handcrafted, original and of good quality. This is a totally new adventure for me, and I love the fact there's always something new to learn every day.
"I would like to share with the world the quality and originality of my work, and to show them that in Peru we can also make things that are modern and fashionable."

I ordered a beautiful opal ring. Very unusual color -clouds. Very nice workmanship. Good energy/feeling. Thanks!
I purchase the ""Andea Moon"" cocktail ring and am very pleased. The particular stone in my ring was brighter and bluer than the one in the picture, which is what I wanted. It has a very sleek, modern look. I prefer interesting settings (with stones that are not my favorite) over a pretty stone in a plain/commonly seen setting, so if that appeals to you too, this is a great piece to help build a unique jewelry collection.
Dear Claudia Llaury, Thank you so much for this wonderful ring. When I put it on for the first time, it seemed I had worn it for many many years; it felt like it belonged right where it is. It is extremely beautiful to look at and feels just as good, not too tight, not too lose, just perfect. Thank you for your inspirational art piece which I can take with me everywhere. Regards...

I bought the Quintet ring from Claudia Llaury, and it is now my favorite piece of jewelry - unique and exquisite, I love it!
Dear Ms Llaury, I recently purchased Sun Couple and loved the piece so much that I also purchased Night Couple. They are both so unusual and cause quite a stir when ever I wear them. You have incredible imagination and talent. I look forward to purchasing more in the future. Thank you!!!
Dear Ms. Llaury, I recently bought Web of Mystery and it has become my most favorite of your pieces to date. All of your designs are very comfortable to wear and absolutely stunning to look at. Today, I also ordered Mars and am so looking forward to receiving it. The quality of your work is outstanding. Thank you!
I just received Sun Couple made by Claudia Llaury. I have been searching for many years for a piece like this and when I put the ring on - it felt like a hand shake from an old friend. An absolutely stunning work of art! Thank you Ms. Llaury.

This is the most beautiful ring i have ever laid my eyes on. The picture didn't even do it justice. You took the art of incorporating my favorite stone, Tiger's Eye, into jewelry to a new level. I will continue to watch for new jewelry from you. Thank you so much!
Dear Claudia, after long anticipation I finally received my ring today. I had been looking for a ""non traditional""(don't like the common opals sold in stores) opal ring for a long time. Opal is my daughter Melissa's birthstone. I absolutely love the ring...thought that the blue Peruvian opal would be more blue than greenish though...but still its a very beautiful piece! I've only worn it a few hours and had lots of compliments. Awesome Ring! Thanks much Alex
Dear Claudia - I purchased your chrysocolla rings, ""Ocean Depths"" for my best friend & she was so cute, Her favorite color is blue, i gave her 3 blue rings, she didn't know which to try on first. I suggested she tried them all - she was so pleased & even more so when they fit!
dear claudia - i purchased your set of 3 chrysocolla rings ""Ocean Depths"" for my best friend for Christmas. her favorite color is blue & as she unwrapped the rings from the tissue, every time she found the next ring her face glowed all-the-more. she didn't know which ring to try on first. i gently suggested that she could wear al 3 together. she put the 3 rings on & her face just glowed. the rings are simple in design yet are pleasingly elegant as well. thank-you so much for sharing your talent with the world! sincerely -
I received the ""Peruvian Sky"" ring yesterday...it is so very beautiful...I couldn't be more pleased! Your artistry in its design and creation is wonderful...thank you so much!
I received my Amazonite ""Memory"" earrings today! Such adorable packaging and the earrings are even more beautiful than the picture. I got a set for a friend's birthday, too. I'm sure she will love them as much as I do!
I received my first ring (""Attitude"") many weeks ago, and I can see why others say that when they place one of your rings on their fingers, it feels like it has always belonged. The craftsmanship is outstanding, the design is unique, and there is an inherent feeling of pleasure. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my next purchase (""Serpent"") and I am grateful to you for sharing your talents with the world.

Just ordered ""Andean Sky"" and ""Blue tears"" for my daughter-in-laws for Christmas. I know they will love this unique jewelry as much as Iove my ""Andean moon"" ring. It will be something they can hand down to their daughters. Can't wait to order ""Andean Sky"" for myself. Sincerely, Marie
