As a veteran industry designer and manager of a wholesale establishment, Elisabeth Koller-Galler (CEO) purchased the traditional CIRO Jewelry brand in 2006.
CIRO continues to manufacture design jewelry with carefully selected fine materials. The superior properties of the CIROLIT and of the CIRO pearl, as well as the gold plated silver alloy, adhere genuine-jewellery-quality.
CIRO manufactures „design jewelry“ in genuine jewelry quality, making luxury accessible. CIRO gems are often referred to as “CIROLIT”. No matter what synthetic you choose, it will always come in highest quality available. Our cubic zirconia (zirconium dioxide (ZrO2)) for example is ranked above triple AAA and shows all characteristics of a natural diamond. All CIRO gems are available in various cuts like asscher, princess or pear shape.
The “CIRO pearls” are handpicked and consist of a shell core. The surface is made of pure mother of pearl from oysters.
CIRO jewelry has to meet the highest quality requirements to guarantee aesthetic design and wearable comfort. Silver (925 Sterling Silver) or Gold (14 or 18 ct.) is processed by using the chill-cast method. Pieces made with silver are gold, white- or rose-gold plated to avoid tarnishing.

CIRO Jewelry was registered in 1917 in London UK as a mail order company. Customers would detach a pre-print order form from a daily newspaper, fill it and mail it together with a money order to CIRO Jewelry. It was only three years later, in 1920, that CIRO Jewelry would open its first store in Bond Street, London UK. In paying homage to the origins of the brand, CIRO Jewelry today, operates its webshop proud, thorough and with a lot of love and care.
The CIRO pearl – the world’s first shell (core) pearl – laid the foundation for the CIRO company in 1917, starting an almost 100-year long tradition. Shell pearls were not known back then and real pearls were very expensive. Therefore the CIRO pearl was the first appealing and affordable alternative to the very popular “real pearl”. Once other shell pearls entered the market, in the early 1920’s, CIRO already was leading the market.
Due to new technologies, CIRO adopted in the 1970’s the “CIROLIT”. Until today it remains rather difficult to differentiate the above triple A classified cubic zirconia from real gemstones.
In the 1990’s CIRO operated more than 150 stores worldwide, with over 50 stores in the US. CIRO continues its reputation as a leading producer of high end imitation jewelry in Sterling silver or brass, yellow- or white-gold plated, combined with CIROLIT and Pearls.
