About the Brand
Fine Jewelry with a Refined Sense of Nobility.
Vardui Kara is a fine jewelry collection founded on the principles of exploring new and experimental concepts, while collaborating with the most skillful artisans in Los Angeles to create timeless pieces with collector's appeal. The line incorporates multi processes of design and stone setting to intrigue the women who believe everyday jewelry does not need to be basic. Jewelry holds a personal meaning to us all and that is why we have set out to create something authentic and modern that helps a woman tell her story. Unique details and a balanced design come together to encourage a refined self-expression.
Why We Are Different
Big brands in the fine jewelry industry markup their pieces 8-10x their actual cost. We like to do things differently. Unlike the traditional jewelry industry, we set out to launch our own model to design, create, source, and sell fine jewelry directly to you.
We have said bye to: Wholesale distribution markups, excess assortment, production markups, import costs, retail markups, and sales commissions.
Instead, we focus on thoughtful product assortment, responsible production, quality materials made to last a lifetime, working with local manufacturers, and handling the shipping ourselves.
To put it simply, our jewelry is handcrafted with the same high quality materials and craftsmanship as other luxury jewelry brands without the traditional markups.
The Modern Renaissance Woman
Vardui Kara collections revolve around feminine strength and fortitude. We stand for the woman who realizes she is not just a one-dimensional being. She is the Modern Renaissance Woman - intelligent, spiritual, courageous, strong, influential, and multi-talented. She is anxious to share her vast experiences and deep curiosity for life with everyone she encounters. She possesses many interests, and is excited by life and all it has to offer. By her choice of pieces, she communicates the values that she holds.
We spent two full years searching Los Angeles to find the best master jewelers for our various collections. Some of the jewelers we work with are third-generation craftspeople. All of them are committed to excellent and intricate craftsmanship on producing quality pieces. We value each artisan for their unique skills such as soldering, stone setting, or sandblasting. By making each jewelry item to order, we support local and talented artisans while, at the same time refusing the purposeless wastage often seen from mass productions.
Our Materials & Ethics
Vardui Kara collections are handmade in Los Angeles and created from rich 14-karat and 18-karat golds, sterling silver, and full-cut diamonds. We make it a priority to work with local, reputable suppliers who share our values of ethical and conscious production. We use recycled precious metal and our diamonds are sourced from trusted partners who guarantee their product to be conflict-free. We inspect every single stone and ounce of gold to be certain it meets your highest standards and exceeds your highest expectations. Our jewelry is designed to last.
