JULIA SANDLAU

22K Gold Plated Swan Necklace with
Quartz and Cubic Zirconia
Though small the Danish city Ebeltoft offers intriguing attractions.  The world’s “first glass museum” is located here as well as the Kalo and Rosenholm castles. 

Perhaps one of the city’s most notable draws is the extravagant wooden houses, instead of hotels, that accommodate tourists. 

Denmark is also home to featured jewelry designer Julie Sandlau.

Expressions of simplicity in jewelry design can be dull and flat; sleek and pretty; or almost clinical and icy. 

Sandlau’s classically styled jewelry of 22-karat gold vermeil, cubic zirconia, and semi-precious gemstones is pure Scandinavian design: pared down yet idiosyncratic.

Her low-key, modern take on the signet ring is an engraved setting of the tree of life symbol (Sandlau’s signature) surrounded by tiny, white cubic zirconia. 

In contrast, Sandlau’s Mermaid Ring is more reminiscent of the traditional signet ring in its grand, opulent shield style.  Overall, her collections reflect an appealing aesthetic that is colorful with hints of vintage and Old World flair.  Additionally her price points are bank withdrawal friendly currently starting at $62.67. 

A former model and law student, Sandlau absorbed the vivid ambience of her travels   diligently imparting those scenic wonders to her jewelry collections.  Social consciousness is also a big part of her business model as she champions the well-being of children.

“I discovered a Chinese healing herb while traveling in the Far East.  The leaf’s delicate silhouette stayed with me, and I chose it as a personal signifier that symbolized the Tree of Life,” she recalls.

“My philosophy is to create a modern luxury collection of jewelry that follows distinctive trends.  The soul of each design is simplicity and elegance. 

I am in love with the entire process of jewelry making from picking out the gemstones to creating the finished piece.  I also believe in making a difference.  I collaborated with the Choice Foundation and created the Breaking the Poverty Cycle Bracelet.

Proceeds from the sale will help disadvantaged children in Hanoi, Vietnam by providing education.  There is a great need to break the poverty cycle.

Many families cannot afford paying for their children’s education, and send them to the cities instead to make money.  The more bracelets sold, the more children can be helped.”
