About:

The Rionore story began with Rio Tinto and the discovery of fine quality emeralds in the Sandawana mine in Zimbabwe. The mining company together with an Irish business entrepreneur set up the stone-cutting and jewellery-making workshop , and it is in Kilkenny, Ireland, where Rionore began over 50 years ago, that Rionore today has its office.

The third-generation re-incarnation of Rionore  has given rise to this first collection of Irish inspired affordable fine jewellery. Still produced with “old school values” of quality design and craft-work, the now family-owned Rionore is, for the first time, available to purchase from anywhere in the world.
