About

Oona, meaning ‘one’ in Gaelic, is the name given to the exclusive jewellery collection crafted by master artisans in Sri Lanka. These delicate handmade pieces feature a rich variety of natural gems and precious stones. They are all crafted with the utmost care and attention to detail, with each piece truly unique, both in its design and creation.

After travelling to Asia for many years, María Moro founded this jewellery brand, driven by a desire to rekindle traditional jewellery values and techniques.

María, who lives between Madrid and Sri Lanka, developed her professional career working for fashion and lifestyle magazines, particularly focusing on the luxury industry in various European countries in recent years.

Her passion for travelling took her to the island of Ceylon, also known as the “Jewel of the Indian Ocean”. Ceylon is like no other place on Earth, and is home to a stunning variety of gems and precious stones: sapphires, topaz, amethysts, tourmalines, moonstones…
