MIL Jewellery is a contemporary jewellery brand with a unique sense of creativity, inspired by geometric shapes, minimalism and patterns. All of the collections are a combination of modern designs and craftsmanship, expressed in simple and elegant lines.
Our studio is based in the village of Nazaré, Portugal, where all the collections are produced using manual and traditional techniques with eco-friendly silver and gold.
We believe that numbers have a mystical impact in our lives. That’s the reason why all of our collections are named after numbers and inspired by their meanings.
Sophisticated individuals who love to wear contemporary jewellery that makes them feel confident, adventurous and special, having a natural sense of style and an evolving modern personality.
