Hi all and welcome to our PalenqueJewellery blog!
If you don’t know much about us here’s a little bit of background info for you!
Hidden in the depths of Southern Mexico, concealed amidst a vast landscape of magnificent mountains, dense green jungles and cascading waterfalls, lies one of the most impressive archaeological sites. It’s name is Palenque, an ancient Mayan city, renowned for its archaic temples adorned with intricate carvings and dramatic sculptures. Although completely uninhabited since the ninth century CE, Palenque has now become the home to thousands of beautiful, colourful butterflies, who dance throughout the mystical ruins.
It was whilst visiting Palenque that David and Susana Heard first became inspired. Captivated by its beauty and the nature, they went on to source a range of sterling silver jewellery that reflected this, and the company they were to create found it’s name and it’s emblem became the butterfly.
David and Susana opened their first sterling silver jewellery shop in the city of Edinburgh in 1992, followed by branches in York, Cambridge, Chester and a second one in Edinburgh. The concept that originally inspired the creation of Palenque Jewellery developed into a dynamic company specialising in unique and stylish sterling silver jewellery designs.
At Palenque Jewellery, the majority of pieces are made in Mexico, created by skilled commissioned jewellers selected for their flawless workmanship. David and Susana return to Mexico twice each year to go in search of new and exciting ranges and to ensure Palenque always has the hottest sterling silver jewellery trends for all of the seasons. They also create many designs themselves, adding a unique touch to an already exclusive collection. At Palenque Jewellery, pieces are always carefully selected that reflect the ethos of the company to provide beautiful, high quality designs at an affordable price.
