WHO, WHEN, WHERE?
Founded by Erny Pontoh Johnstone in 2009. The head quarter of Kura Jewellery is based in Hong Kong.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Kura Jewellery is a luxury fine jewellery brand that honours individual style of each woman. We believe that each woman is unique and beautiful in her own way and has her own distinct style.
Our Main Design Concept is VERSATILITY . Kura Jewellery collections are created to stack, style and personalise with engraving to allow each woman the freedom to express their own individual style.
Bridging the gap between fashion and haute (high) jewellery, Erny creates elegant contemporary fine jewellery collections that are wearable and affordable. Erny nicknamed her jewellery collections as "affordable luxury".
WHERE ARE KURA JEWELLERY PIECES MADE?
Kura Jewellery pieces are created with collaboration from skilled craftsmen where production takes place in Italy and Hong Kong. Our pieces are made from solid 18 karat, 14 karat gold, and sterling silver gold plated with hand selected and ethically sourced real natural diamonds, real natural gemstones, and pearls.
OUR PRICING PHILOSOPHY
We believe in fair pricing and in bringing the most value to our clients while maintaining our product quality and design.
You may have noticed and may be wondering why our jewellery pieces with real diamonds, real gemstone and made with real solid 18K and 14K gold seems too good to be true at these prices. Most luxury jewellery brands in the industry mark up their product 5x - 10x the actual cost of the piece. Well, we have different philosophy!
In our experience, by providing fair pricing and fair value to our clients without sacrificing our product quality and design, we have gained happy, loyal, long-term clients whom have became Kura Jewellery brand ambassadors by referring us to their families and friends. It's a win-win situation! This has been our philosophy and practise since the inception of Kura Jewellery since 2009.
ABOUT ERNY - FROM A PRIVATE BANKER TO JEWELLERY DESIGNER.
Erny graduated from business schools in Los Angeles, California, with Bachelor Degree and Master Degree in Business Admin. After successful 10 years in finance industry, Erny left her last position as Vice President in one of the top European Private Banks in Singapore and pursued her passion for fine jewellery. She enrolled into GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and earned her Jewellery Design Diploma, Diamonds Diploma and Pearl Diploma.
Erny started Kura Jewellery in 2009 by creating bespoke pieces for her high net-worth private clients in HongKong, Singapore, and Indonesia focusing mainly in 18 karat gold.
Very soon Kura Jewellery started gaining private clients from other countries such as Australia, Canada, USA, London, and Dubai. As the business grew, Erny created a second line using sterling silver gold plated to reach wider audience. And in 2014 Erny launched Kura Jewellery online boutique carrying wider selections of jewellery designs to reach wider audience globally.

ABOUT THE NAME "KURA".
The name KURA is derived from an Indonesian word "Kura Kura" which means TURTLE, which is Erny's nickname given by her husband. Hence our brand logo that represents the turtle shell. Some also believe that TURTLE symbolises longevity, good luck, and wisdom.
