A POWERFUL PROMOTION.
In Ancient Egypt, the obelisk was believed to perforate the clouds – Dispersing negative energies in the form of storms. We loved this beautiful symbology – so we created an entire collection around it. Pendants inspired by the protective power of the Obelisk – considered amulets if you’re superstitious or just really sexy, beautiful, clean-lined pieces of sculpture worn close to your heart. In today’s climate everyone could use some good energy & protective vibes! To celebrate the launch of our new e-com website shop our curated selection at 25% off. Each pendant is made exclusively of 18K Fairmined Gold & conflict free diamonds. Now that’s positive news!

INSPIRATIONVacances d’été – The photography of ANDREW YEE
Inspired by the delicate balance of life / work, TEJEN strives to give time to time. August in France is a time for both holiday and the rejuvenation of our creative spirit as new ideas bloom into new seasons and collections.
Fashion photographer Andrew Yee captures the holiday vibe in this series inspired by the lazy days of summer – Minimal jewelry, fading summer roses and that poignant “end of season” feeling. Our Core Gold Collection’s delicate architecture perfectly compliments breezy summer hair, sun kissed skin, white linen and lace.

INSPIRATIONGold Standard – The photography of R. TANAKA of Japan
We only work with FAIRMINED certified gold mines.
TEJEN’s V.01 core gold comes from artisanal mines found in South America; Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. The premium we pay for the gold used in our collections allows FAIRMINED to empower these artisan communities to create fair wages within their cooperatives, implement social welfare programs and ensure environmental protection. This is the new luxury – to be able to identify exactly where the materials come from, the hands that crafted (or in this case mined them) and how those people are being treated and empowered to create better lives for themselves and their communities.
Convinced that luxury should naturally contribute to preserving the beauty and rarity of our planet, TEJEN strives to use the highest quality, ethical and sustainable materials.
INSPIRATION Images that spark that “vision”.
Something about the juxtaposition of these two photographs really struck a chord with us. We referenced this collage over and over again as we designed the first collection and created the imaging for the brand. So much was inspired by the vision the combination gave us.
An ancient eclipse, a modern obelisk…
