The Story

Shamballa Jewels was founded by the brothers Mads and Mikkel Kornerup in Copenhagen, Denmark. We make precious jewellery that encourages the possibility of connecting to our inner compassion and wisdom.
In 2001 Mads Kornerup designed what is known today as the iconic Shamballa Bracelet. The bracelet comprised of diamond studded gold beads strung together by the ancient macramé technique. Together the brothers developed the bracelet designs further, and they have since expanded our repertoire to include rings, earrings, cufflinks and necklaces. Today, the spirit of Shamballa Jewels remains equally fuelled by innovation and tradition.
Star rap musician Jay Z was the first to custom order a Shamballa Bracelet. Today, we are honoured to count Karl Lagerfeld, HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, HRH Crown Princess Mette Marit of Norway, Carine Roitfeld, Gwyneth Paltrow, Diane Von Furstenberg and Giorgio Armani amongst the discerning collectors of our jewellery.
