ABOUT THE LARIMAR SHOP
Showing the world the incredible Dominican artistry since 1998.
We are a Mother-Daughter online shop located in the Dominican Republic. Just the two of us working together on this beautiful project that started more than 15 years ago.
HOW DID IT ALL START?
First, it was only a dream since I worked a full-time job as an executive of one of the biggest telephone companies in the country. My vision started to take shape after giving birth to my first child. I was splitting my time between work and family, trying to find the right Work-Life Balance (Still working on it!!) to comply with everything or almost everything; this was when my second child was born.
At this point, I started thinking about putting my efforts into something that I love and be able to spend more time with my family.
On the other hand, my mom was related to the artisan world, having the chance to meet most of our local artisans and work with tourist groups worldwide.
We always had the dream of showing the world the incredible artistry of our Dominican artisans. Their art has been learned for generations, exhibiting beautiful jewelry with traditional clean lines and classic designs.
We thought of the beauty of creating Larimar jewels solely for #Larimarlovers abroad. We started working with a small stock made by only two artisans we had known for years (our leading artisans today). The appreciation of our jewels surpassed our expectations! We had to make room for more artisans, and I decided to resign from my 13 years job.
More than ten years later, I would say that this has been by far the most exciting chapter of my life. Our goal is to showcase the beauty of Dominican craftsmanship and, most importantly, our unique Dominican Larimar stone.
In the present
As for today, we strive to obtain the Larimar directly from the miners, enabling us to offer you the best Larimar quality in each piece. Each year new younger artists join our workshop to keep our collections fresh and always in style without losing the artisanal touch.
You cannot imagine how we enjoy every time we pack and ship your orders. It means sharing the beauty of Larimar with customers around the world, offering the best we can at a price each pocket can afford according to their demand!
