about us

elínalans is a contemporary jewelry studio, created by elina t. lans, third-generation jeweler and lawyer.

we handcraft unique jewelry pieces that empower and inspire. our jewels tell stories and are created in small quantities.

combining artistic vision with conscious and traditional techniques, we craft jewelry for remarkable people who appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of handmade jewels.

sculptural and minimal silhouettes are lovingly artisan-made in our atelier in amsterdam from a mix of new, recycled and reclaimed metals and responsibly sourced gemstones.

“I was a lawyer when i inherited my great-grand-mother rahel’s old jewelry tools. thanks to her i started jewelry making courses and immediately fell in love with it. there is a ton of passion in how our jewelry is made”

beauty and sustainability go hand in hand


we support a range of causes by donating a part of our online sale profits to charities and by raising awareness on the impact of the industry.

in the light of recent natural and man-made disasters around the world, we are calling for peace, freedom and non-violence. for the future that's based on principles of full equality and recognition of full national rights for everyone.
