The story of Van Andel & Peace Jewels.
Kees van Andel and Karen Peace are a creative design team who met up in Amsterdam in the 80’s and are now based in Goa, India.
Travelling in India in the 90’s they fell in love with the rich culture, vibrant colours and dazzling selection of high-quality gemstones available in this magical subcontinent.
Finally settling in Goa in 1999, they have since opened their studio in a secluded inland leafy village far away from the bustle of mainstream tourism, known as the Cheshire Cat Gallery Goa.
Their lives are filled with magic and spirituality and through their jewellery designs, they seek to share with us their inner chest of fantastical treasures.
Using ancient techniques of goldsmithing such as granulation and filigree, and working with rich 22ct gold, they select gemstones for their depth of colour and purity, and create eye-catching combinations of light and textures that delight and amaze.
Van Andel & Peace draw their inspirations from ethnic Indian, as well as Victorian designs, blending traditional motifs with very contemporary styling. Their singular creations have been described variously as “Fairytale”, “Baroque” and “Chic-Antique”, where each piece begins as a vision that gradually evolves as the work progresses.
Following no set rules and confined by no boundaries, their jewellery is designed for women with a strong sense of individuality and style. Plan to see Cheshire Cat Jewellery Gallery and other attractions that appeal to you using our Goa trip itinerary planning site.

Lovely boutique! Their collection of jewellery is exquisite and each piece is handcrafted and truly unique. Hard to come by such beautiful and intricate designs at a regular jewellery store. The owner Karen is very friendly and an absolute delight. Looking forward to visiting their store soon!
I ordered precious earrings for my wife. I received them simple as promised: door to door delivery. But inside well typed small box was finest jewellery I ever touched with my hands. Precious composition of diamonds, gold and pearls. My wife is marvellous with those shinny Neptunian earrings.
