to be certain it meets your highest standards and exceeds your
highest expectations. Our jewelry is designed to last.

GOLD

We only use real, solid 18-karat and 14-karat gold in our jewelry and we're also one of the few fine jewelry designers to work in gold vermeil. We want to work to give you the most possibility.

DIAMONDS

We're very meticulous about our diamonds. Using only full-cut diamonds, we only work with suppliers that verify their diamonds are ethically and environmentally sourced.

 

  

 We focus on what matters: originality by design, long-lasting
materials, ethical production, and honest pricing.

Our Gold

We only use real, solid 18-karat and 14-karat gold when crafting our jewelry. 18-karat contains 75% gold and 25% alloyed metals, while 14-karat contains 58% gold and 42% alloyed metals. Alloy is added to the gold to enhance its durability and hardness. All of our materials are the perfect option for those with metal allergies.

 

 

Vermeil jewelry is 0.925 sterling silver pieces expertly
plated in gold. To be considered vermeil, the gold used must 
be at least 10-karat. Ours is plated with 18-karat gold, which
is more hypoallergenic and has a thicker layer of gold.

Our Diamonds

The most universal way to assess your diamond quality is by using the "Four C's: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat weight," a globally accepted standard for describing diamonds created by the Gemological Institute of the America.

 


Our materials are sustainable and labor practices are ethical.
In addition to using high quality materials, all of our jewelry is
handcrafted from the heart of Los Angeles. This allows us to
oversee processes and make sure everything is up to
our highest standards.

 

Color

A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond is colorless, and is graded on a "D" scale. The scale begins with D and continues, with increasing presence of color, to the letter Z. We only use diamonds graded Colorless ( D to F ) or Near Colorless ( G to H ).

Clarity

This refers to any imperfections or inclusions in your diamond, which can result from natural diamonds being exposed to extreme heat and pressure deep in the earth. The clearer, the better. That is why we'll only use VS and S1 graded diamonds - where any inclusions are too tiny to be seen by the naked eye.

Cut

The quality of the cut is important to the diamond's beauty and value. The cut is what determines your diamond's ability to transmit light and sparkle intensely. All of our diamond cuts are graded "very good" or "better" on the GIA Cut Grading System for the standard round brilliant diamond.

Carat

Carat weight is the measure of how much a diamond weighs. Diamond prices increase with carat weights. However, a bigger diamond is always better. A diamond's value is determined using all of the 4C's.
