Our Story

Elegance & Joy is an Australian designer jewellery brand that is directed and designed by Erin Coates.

Having been raised into her family jewellery business, from a young age Erin always loved to experience the romanticism of jewellery, and the way in which a sentimental piece of jewellery can be so much more than just something to wear. Her transition into a custom design specialist for the business was a natural progression, allowing her to share first-hand in the meaningful experience of selecting and creating a special piece of jewellery with her customer.

The foundation of Elegance & Joy stemmed from her desire to take the experience one step further, and combine jewellery design with her own love in life – dance. A passionate art form, Erin draws upon many elements in dance, and all forms of movement, to tell stories through her designs. Whether it be an emotion or feeling, a particular movement or shape, or even a theme. This exploration and eventual creation of something beautiful is what she likes to call ‘the art of movement’.

The result is the debut collection titled ‘Arabesque’, a versatile range of high-quality Sterling silver jewellery with an artistic design aesthetic. Striking a unique balance between the beauty of bespoke design and a commercial accessibility to women from all walks of life, the collection features an array of simple, delicate pieces appropriate for every day wear, to more elaborate creations, suited for special occasions or events.

We invite you to enjoy the Elegance & Joy jewellery experience online or in one of our retail partner stores. Explore the collection, uncover Erin’s design process, and discover the art of movement. We hope the jewellery speaks to you, moves you, and inspires you to find your own special movement story within.
