With more than 20 years of experience crafting and manufacturing distinct pieces, design powerhouse Sylva Yepremian celebrates the diversity of her clientele and is dedicated to creating hand-crafted fine jewelry that is distinctive and fashionable.

By designing pieces of jewelry as works of art, Sylva allows her jewelry and the client to connect on a personal level. Women of style have chosen to incorporate her jewels as a staple in their everyday wardrobe, as well as when the spotlights shine on their biggest nights of the year.

Each and every piece designed by Sylva is a limited edition and unique from others. Natural elements are hand-selected from around the world and thoughtfully crafted into bold arrangements of stones, making each piece as unique as the woman who wears them.
