Chao & Eero
Founded by Chao-Hsien Kuo and Eero Hintsanen on Valentine’s Day in 2005, the Finnish jewelry brand Chao & Eero stands for a love story. Love for each other, and love for creating jewelry.
Both Chao and Eero are Master Goldsmiths with a design education background ( MA from Aalto University in Helsinki). They design and make jewelry in their own uncompromising way, with a clear focus on original ideas and impeccable quality. They work mainly with precious metals and traditional techniques. Although based in Lahti, a small city 100 km north of Helsinki, Chao & Eero’s jewelry is known and appreciated internationally. Their work is very wide-ranging, from everyday-wear simple designs, bold statement pieces to one-of-a-kind wearable sculptures, which express their artistic views.
The spirit of the brand is an honest reflection of Chao and Eero's lifestyle and professional attitude. They enjoy, cherish and are inspired by the nature around them in Finland.
