Every year, Shamballa Jewels handpicks utterly unique gemstones and creates a collection of impeccable pieces like no other.

This year, the Special Creations take you on a journey back in time. We invite you to explore millennia-old ancient beads meticulously combined with rare diamonds and gemstones from all corners of the world.

Craftsmen from ancient Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley shaped these beads from lapis lazuli, carnelian, and jade, using age-old techniques to engrave motifs like protective eyes and spirals symbolizing eternity.

Bead-making is among humanity’s oldest artistic pursuits. Creating talismans to connect with the spiritual world and uniting civilizations across the globe, the craft of these skilled artisans has withstood the test of time and layed a foundation for jewelry artistry as we know it today.

Listen to our co-founder Mads Kornerup talking about these one-of-a-kind designs and discover the rich symbolism behind every bead, each telling a different story from the past.



The Special Creations 2023 can be seen in our flagship store in Copenhagen on Friday and Saturday, October 22-23 exclusively. After that, the collection takes on a journey around the world visiting some of our trusted retailers. Keep an eye on our website or Instagram for more information.

Please note, the Special Creations 2023 are a limited edition. Each creation is unique and cannot be recreated again.
