Dubrovnik Jewelry Collection

Traditional Dubrovnik jewelry

Dubrovnik is a beautiful city located in the south of Croatia, built on the rocks and protected by St. Blaise, the patron saint through the history.

Unfortunately, very little of original jewelry by old Dubrovnik goldsmiths have been preserved, due to the thefts, selling, moving, inheritance, damaging and melting that goldsmith was often exposed to. However, preserved jewelry is kept in a museum where you can mostly see votive offerings that the people of Dubrovnik donated to the church and to their patrons.

Križek Jewelry from Zagreb amazed by the beauty of the jewelry and intrigued by the complexity of its manufacture, after long preparations managed to create a collection of historic jewelry – Dubrovnik Jewelry Collection. The collection has been awarded by the Croatian Chamber of Commerce with the “Croatian Creation” label.

The collection encompasses the most popular pieces of jewelry from Dubrovnik region, such as the necklace made of golden beads- “peružini”, the engagement ring in the shape of two conjoined hands – “Vera”, rings “Zmijar” and “Samarac”, earrings “Rečini na bočicu” earrings “Vežilice,” cross with the decoration of filigree, …

These pieces are: heart-shaped pendant “srce”, needle heart brooch “igla srce”, star-shaped pendant “zvijezda” and plum-shaped earrings “šljivice“. Jewelry is made by using old techniques of manufacture and respecting the technology of the 17th century.
