Jewellery design became Polthakorn Viboonviriyawong’s (called Jo-Jo) passion when his mother who built a successful diamond business in Bangkok, Thailand asked him to design settings for her jewellery.
Her name was Vilaiwan. She sent him to the United States to study his passion. In honour of her, he started Vilaiwan Fine Jewellery.
What to know when buying Vilaiwan
Jo-Jo received his masters at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and while there jewellery became even more of a passion for him. He sees jewellery as an art form and as making a personal statement. He is inspired by vintage styles and many of his pieces have his signature flower as the centrepiece. Every piece of his jewellery is designed by Jo-Jo and handmade. This means that you are buying an original when buying one of his pieces as they can’t be mass-produced.
Just some examples of his work include things like crochet bracelets, various cuff bracelets with gemstones, collar necklaces, crocheted necklaces and crocheted earrings. His crochet earrings are a series of three small fans, each accented with a single pearl and green peridot. They are actually crocheted out of sterling silver wire. They are light and small, very easy to wear.
Many of his pieces are gold plated and feature his signature flowers as the centrepieces. These are truly bold statement pieces of unbelievable beauty and quality. Many come in matching bracelet and earring or necklace and earring sets. Almost all are accented with crystals or gemstones, everything from rubies to lapis. Three of his collections are the Golden Era Collection, Midnight Collection, and Paradise Collection, one truly more beautiful and unique than the other.
