About Julia

Described in Vogue as “an exciting young designer with a passion for pearls”, Julia Pharo was born and raised in the Transvaal – the heart of South Africa’s gold and diamond mining industry. As a little girl, her young fingers were constantly stained by the brick red earth of her grandfather’s diamond mine where she played, searching through the rich topsoil dreaming of finding her own precious gemstone.

Julia’s early fascination with the beautiful gems mined by her family developed into a passion and flair for jewellery design, combining the stark beauty of precious and semi- precious stones with the soft lustre of Tahitian, South Sea and Freshwater Pearls.


Now living and working in London, Julia’s bespoke jewellery pieces are exquisitely designed and instantly recognisable.

With the most stunningly beautiful and unique pieces in both her Elite and Classic Jewellery Collections, Julia has a loyal and growing clientele investing in her artisan crafted collections.




Having trained in jewellery making at Holts Academy in London’s Hatton Garden, Julia is a proud member of The British Jewellers’ Association.

The Elite Collection includes designs featuring Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies and other precious gemstones set on Gold, complemented by Tahitian, South Sea and Freshwater Pearls.
