Ahav is a jewelry brand made in Curaçao located at Mambo Beach BLVD. All our jewelry is handmade with passion and love. The name Ahav stands for Amo, Humanitas, Animo and Vita. Which means ‘I love humanity, soul and life.’ Ahav is a word for love in the Hebrewan language.
We focus on a lot of different high standard jewels and styles, made for everyone. Our message is that all humans are equal. Our skin colour, our own personal beliefs and sexual preferences make us unique individuals and define who we are. We are all beautiful unique human creatures in this world.
Ahav has a huge, genuine passion for gemstones and natural stones and all its beneficial perspectives. The designer and owner of Ahav travels all over the world to collect a lot of different gems, pearls and more supplies to create Ahav’s handmade jewelry.
Our designs are inspired by our own personal experiences, what we see and what we feel. We try to use colours and only natural materials which are obtained legally and fair trade.
But how did Ahav actually come about?
Monique Elmondalek, the designer and owner of Ahav, had a passion for designing and jewelry since she was little. “As long as I can remember I have been making or designing something. My first creatures were made out of telephone wires and were sold at school. I was seven years old and all I did was design jewels out of everything I found about and around.”
