Our principles of design are rooted in a blend of beauty and sustainability.
For us, sustainable jewelry means timeless design, sustainable materials, quality craftsmanship and simple care. For you, it means jewelry you’ll treasure and want to wear for the rest of your life.
Our designs are an exploration of the formal rules and expectations of fine jewelry and a conscious attempt to challenge and break those rules and expectations – creating new and better ones along the way.
The SOL collections adhere to the quintessential Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, characterized by asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, modesty, intimacy, and the suggestion of natural processes. Wabi-sabi aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is ‘imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete’. It is not a designing style but rather a mind-set: living modestly, learning to be satisfied with life as it can be once we strip away the unnecessary – living in the moment. The SOL collections symbolize this mind-set, absolutely inspired by nature and natural elements.
The SOL Collections are handcrafted in sterling silver and set with the finest precision-cut Swarovski Zirconia and other natural stones and crystals.
The DIAZ Bridal & Gift Collections comprise tastefully simple, timeless jewelry items that are perfect for that special someone. Although the designs and looks are traditional, diamonds are deliberately not used because they are not well regulated and sales of the stones have been linked to ethical and environmental issues. Likewise, gold is not used because its mining is associated with human rights abuses and environmental devastation. We proudly introduce the concept of the “new 4Cs” in bridal jewelry – symbolizing Clarity, Conscience, Compassion, Commitment – the four truths that represent the DIAZ brand ethos that also mark the union that bonds giver and receiver. The DIAZ Collections are proudly and meticulously handcrafted in sterling silver and set with the finest precision-cut Swarovski Zirconia for the perfect ‘diamond’ look and feel minus the stress.
