Branded as Simply Elegant, the collection is a wish to bring the same passion which forged the flamboyant handcrafted pieces to more patrons and clientele.

The outcome is a delicate array of dainty jewelry pieces thinly crafted in 14-karat to 18-karat gold, accentuated by the timeless elegance of natural melee diamonds. It includes box chain necklaces and stackable rings, stud and hook earrings.

While Devaluchi Joaillerie showcases a bold, original combination of diamonds and colored stones, Simply Elegant exudes a sleek touch of luxe that allows the adornment of diamonds to take center stage.

Denise sees her new designs as a symbol for young independence, reminiscent of how she herself reached for her life-long dream.

Masterfully created by talented local artisans, it retains her creative philosophy: Extraordinary design, quality diamonds and great craftsmanship.

“These pieces were made for everyday wear fine jewelry — simple, yet hip and trendy,” the newlywed described.

Ever since she was a child, she had always dreamed of becoming a fashion and jewelry designer. She formally began her journey in the Fashion Design and Merchandising Program of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. She then refined her skills at the Gemological Laboratory of the Philippines, followed by her training at the prestigious Gemological Institute of America (GIA), a non-profit center focused on researches on diamonds and colored stones.

“Benilde fueled my creativity and honed my leadership skills, while GIA taught me how to believe in myself and my abilities despite hardships,” she recalled.

She was able to establish her own jewelry line in 2018. While the world drastically stopped in 2020 due to the pandemic, blessings came as her creations graced the globally acclaimed glossies of Condé Nast Traveller, Tatler UK and British Vogue.

The young jeweler values quality and honesty above all else, as their policy is full disclosure of the origin of their stones — be it natural diamonds, colored stones, laboratory grown or simulated ones.
