Announcement   Welcome! Ximena Esquivel Jewelry is handmade jewelry designed in Costa Rica. Each piece is handcrafted in sterling silver with gemstones from all over the world.

My objective is to make women feel incredible, beautiful, powerful and unique. I believe in jewelry as an agent of personality that helps us express ourselves. One of the reasons I became a metalsmith was because it was almost impossible to find jewelry that allowed me to communicate. That is why I design for women seeking originality and versatility through jewelry that can be used every day and show how unique, elegant and powerful they are.

I have spent my entire life surrounded by the most beautiful flora and fauna. Costa Rica contains 6% of the world's biodiversity despite the fact that it only represents 0.03% of the earth's surface. Inspiration is everywhere! Taking advantage of natural shapes, stones and metals, I interpret Costa Rica's nature in classic, versatile, and elegant handmade jewelry.

About

Jewelry passed from being a hobby into a full-time job with which I'm in love.

Since I was a child I’ve been in love with jewelry and its elaboration. I was not even two years old when I already had my own jewelry collection full of necklaces in all sizes and shapes in my own jewel box. This jewel box was a small pink box with a Looney Tunes sticker on the front and it was my most precious possession.

As time passed by, my passion was not limited by the jewelry itself, but also to its elaboration. When I started school I began to experiment with bead kits and elastic thread that my mom used to buy me. From that time on, I began creating my own jewelry. A few years later I ventured into making my first pieces to sell. My favorite selling point was my mother’s work.

Eventually, I decided to take metalsmithing classes. Since the first day I was in awe with this art. Due to this, it became my favorite hobby during my entire college career. When I graduated from college I decided to give jewelry an opportunity as a business and created Ximena Esquivel Jewelry.

Two years ago, the jewelry passed from being a hobby into a full-time job with which I’m in love. Without the support from all of you my dream would not be what it is. My work would not be my favorite, so I will never get tired of thanking you. Thank you all for the support throughout this path! Ximena Esquivel would not be the same without you!
