The Journey Begins

In May 1986, a simple lunch between Wolf Guibbory and his former partner, Vera, marked the beginning of a remarkable journey. Wolf shared tales from his recent visit to Bali, speaking vividly of its captivating landscapes and rich culture. This conversation wasn't just a catch-up between two individuals but the seed of a shared vision that would soon take root.

The Inspiration from Bali

Wolf's experiences in Bali, with its lush rice terraces and crystal-clear waters, deeply moved him. Beyond its physical beauty, it was the island's spirit that truly resonated. The warmth and spirituality of the Balinese people, juxtaposed with their challenging living conditions, left an impression that called for more than just admiration—it sparked a desire to make a meaningful difference.

The Birth of Vera Wolf Jewelry

At that significant meeting, Wolf showed Vera exquisite handcrafted jewelry he had brought back from Bali. The idea of starting a business emerged naturally, born from a wish to maintain a connection with Bali and support its incredible community. Vera, seeking a new direction in her life, eagerly joined forces with Wolf, transforming this idea into a shared endeavor.

Commitment to Craftsmanship and Community

The early years saw Vera and Wolf balancing other jobs while reinvesting every earned dollar into their emerging brand. Their collaboration with Balinese artisans was more than a business choice; it was a commitment to uphold the island's traditional craftsmanship and improve the lives of their new friends and partners.

Growth and Expansion

As the years passed, Vera Wolf Jewelry grew in stature and influence, leading to a noticeable uplift in the living standards of their partners in Bali. However, a personal milestone remains at the heart of their story: Vera's acceptance of Wolf's marriage proposal in 1987, in the midst of Bali's scenic beauty, a testament to their enduring partnership.

The Present and Future

Today, Wolf continues to lead design and production, while Vera manages administration and their retail store in Connecticut. Their journey, from humble beginnings to a globally recognized brand, is driven by a commitment to quality, ethical practices, and the enduring inspiration they draw from Bali. Looking ahead, Vera and Wolf remain dedicated to their core values, continually inspired by the land that first brought them together.
