House of Istria creates precious vintage and vintage inspired jewellery.

GREEN; we try our hardest to create ethically produced pieces and where possible we try to order locally, and from the etsy community.

PRECIOUS; our vintage findings are all hand sourced from various pieces; this could be the flea markets in paris or local auction houses or even our very own etsy traders. All pieces are sold as vintage or vintage inspired pieces. We love the idea that something has been loved for decades and making one object of beauty into another excites us.

CRYSTAL; We only use genuine swarovski crystal to fashion the modern elements of our pieces. Although this crystal isnt cheap, its certainly precious; its unique cut ensures a brilliance that catches the light like no other crystal.

GIVING; We believe in giving something back. Right now House of Istria has enabled us to sponsor a beautiful little girl through COMPASSION> please see the compassion website of how you too can do this. Our dream is to truly make a difference in the world and your purchase will help us en route to that goal.

LOVE; House of Istria is made in the spirit of romance and love; we want you to love your purchase! Love makes the world go round.
