What is the greatest symbol for a couple’s unconditional love for each other? A wedding ring.
Lily & Co has been helping thousands of lovebirds around the country officially tie the knot by giving them the wedding ring of their dreams. Whether they would want to recreate a certain design of interest or perhaps even create an original design themselves, Lily & Co delivers beautiful craftsmanship and a variety of high-quality 18K and 14K gold jewelry to choose from.
Handmade Jewelry by Filipino Goldsmiths
Lily & Co prides itself with high-quality gold from Bulacan to which this company is certain that the jewelry they produce are genuine and are not simply cheap plated. Swiss diamonds are the basic stones they use, however, clients may opt to upgrade to SI grade genuine diamond if they please.
What makes Lily & Co uniquely special from other mainstream jewelry brands is that their products are personally handcrafted by Filipino goldsmiths. These talented goldsmiths are also well equipped to execute their work with great precision and quality. They also specialize in made-to-order rings that are tailored exactly to the taste of their clients.
“There is a unique sense of sentimentality and value attached to the things that are made to order. It’s you. It’s what you curated and someone actually took time and made it their craft. Each piece would have a unique story.” Renzi Soriano from Lily & Co shared with us.
Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer Filipino goldsmiths nowadays due to the uneven work effort-to-demand ratio. However, Lily & Co plans on changing this by targeting the ever-so-booming wedding industry. They hope that by doing such, they will be able to help advocate for our fellow Filipino goldsmiths and give them the recognition they deserve.
“I believe ang laki ng chance that we can compete with international suppliers with the right branding and marketing lang and by spreading awareness,” Renzi Soriano added.
The Rise of Locally Made Jewelry
Today, more and more Filipinos are embracing locally-made jewelry. While international brands are no doubt ahead when it comes to popularity, Lily & Co promises its customers genuine gold pieces of jewelry at oh-so-affordable prices. Moreover, by purchasing locally made pieces of jewelry, you are not only buying a unique product—you are also supporting the artist who crafted the piece for you. Think of it as if you are offering support to a number of communities out there!
Is your special day coming up? Check out Lily & Co and get the wedding ring of your dreams while advocating for a good cause!
