about us

<h3><strong><span style="color: #ea7eff;">Our founders </span></strong></h3> <p>We are Laura Cristina and Laura Fernanda Duperret, sisters and partners. A few years ago, when the idea of ​​Benedictina was not yet born, many things happened to us with the jewelry we bought: they changed color over time and became ugly, or they gave us allergies and we couldn't use them anymore.</p> < p> </p> <h3><span style="color: #ea7eff;"><strong>Two sisters with something in common </strong></span></h3> <p>You may wonder, who are these pair of sisters and why did they decide to create a brand of jewelry and piercings? We were born in Cartagena nine years apart, and our mother, a fashion designer, always looked super dressed up with her jewelry: she wore lots of rings, chains, and earrings, all made of gold. That image became a reference for us. Sometimes we would sit down and play with her jewelery box and try to convince her to give us our favorite pieces of jewelery from her collection. We also put on her clothes or made orders for dresses or clothes for special dates and celebrations. Our mother was always very accommodating, allowing us to dress however we wanted. Also, after a lot of insisting, he let us keep a bunch of little gems. Not all jewels are good But we didn't wear these jewels frequently, we did it more on special occasions, so we bought earrings and chains that we liked —jewelry— for our daily outfits. However, they were almost disposable because, either they became ugly after a short time of use, or they hurt our ears.</p> <p> </p> <h3><span style="color: #e67dfa;" ><strong>Memories Have Power </strong></span></h3> <p>One day in 2019, we got together and reminisced about those moments when we were little girls and played to keep our mother's jewelry. We also remembered something that had surprised us a lot while we were studying in Spain (Laura Fernanda, book publishing; and Laura Cristina, business administration): the variety of jewels that we saw there, feminine, delicate, but cool, and of excellent quality. , which we never found in Colombia, and how the Spanish women wore them: many at once.</p> <p> </p> <h3><span style="color: #e87ffc;">An idea with a lot of shine </span></h3> <p>At that moment, everything made sense: that passion for fashion and jewelry, inherited from our mother, was something we shared. This is how Benedictina was born. But how is it that a business administrator and an editorial coordinator of scientific journals create a jewelry brand? Our promise of quality Benedictina would not be just any brand. It would have everything we couldn't find here: modern, current and fun designs, aligned with international trends; affordable and long-lasting earrings and piercings that do not cause allergies, do not fester in the ear, do not change color —as almost always happened to us—, and a special line (our favourite) that you do not have to take off to go to the beach or to the gym and is even waterproof.</p> <p> </p> <h3><span style="color: #e47bf9;">What we want for you </span></h3 > <p>This is exactly what you will find in Benedyctina: the freedom to try, experiment and dare when it comes to putting on jewelry (without losing an ear); inspiration for you to feel comfortable when combining earrings and piercings; information about each jewel —the materials it is made of and its characteristics so that you do not make a mistake in the choice—; and personalized advice on what suits you best according to your perforations and tastes.
