Matanai, which means the sun in Balinese, aims to combine timeless design with unparalleled craftsmanship honed by generations of Balinese silversmith families. Born in the heart of Celuk, a small village in southern Bali famous for its art of gold and silver crafting, Matanai stands for effortless beauty. Every piece is unique and hand-crafted out of sterling silver and precious and semi-precious stones with gold accents.
Matanai was started in New York City by Anna Denisova. Anna got her first experience in the world of high-end jewelry when working at Damiani, a legendary Italian luxury jewelry house. Having grown up the Far East, Anna sought to combine her passion for jewelry design and her love of authentic Asian culture, and Matanai was born.
We hope you enjoy our jewelry and as always would love to hear from you.
At Matanai we believe in staying positive, working hard, smiling often, and in giving back!
In addition to working with Balinese silversmith families and promoting fair labor practices and early education in Bali, we donate 10% of all our sales to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a leading pediatric treatment and research facility.
Every day, the incredible people of St. Jude save lives of thousands of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Every child is treated fairly and none are denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. We feel it is our honor and duty to try and help out.
