Millapani started with a passion for creating sculptural handcrafted pieces that would make each woman feel empowered and unique. The love for design and craftsmanship was passed on and inherited by Karen’s two daughters Alexis and Tathienne.
Today we use our interdisciplinary backgrounds in architecture, design, and color psychology to push boundaries yet rescue the world’s oldest jewelry artistry.
Inspired by our own South American heritage, we strive to translate the essence of an ancient art and bring it into the contemporary world.
Golden Lion. Millapani translates to golden lion from Mapudungún, the native Chilean tongue. We aim to make women feel powerful and strong as a lion, yet noble, precious and solid as gold.
All of our pieces are carefully handcrafted in Chile with silver or 18K gold, and precious or semi-precious stones responsibly sourced from all over the world.
