The Valen jewellery shop was opened by Frano Čivljak in the Old Town of Dubrovnik in 1955, offering mostly traditional jewellery and filigree, and more recently a selection of gorgeous modern items as well. It is located on the street Od Puča 23, just a few steps from Stradun.
Valentin Čivljak, Frano’s son, started learning the craft of jewellery making when he was very young, and in 1992 he took as owner of the shop. Having in the past specialised in making beautiful pieces in silver and gold to order, in the last 10 years he has been creating modern necklaces, earrings and rings that have become part of the already outstanding collection.
The modern pieces are all made out of silver and Valentin finds it interesting to explore the different ways in which this beautiful metal can be processed. Combining it with black and white pearls and precious stones he is creating exquisite one-of-a-kind pieces.
