With over 20 years of experience, Sylva Yepremian creates highly distinctive hand-crafted fine jewelry. Sylva & Cie is based in an Old World manufacturing house in the heart of the Downtown Los Angeles jewelry district. Sylva Yepremian, a passionate collector of antique jewelry, alludes to the vintage looks from the Art Deco period as a sizeable source of inspiration for her modern-day collections. Each piece Sylva creates combines nature and the environment with molten metals and colorful jewels, respecting their organic and unrefined beginnings. Born in Lebanon, Sylva Yepremian spent many years in Paris, and at the age of 16, moved to Los Angeles. Sylva also received training from her father who was a master jeweler for The Maison Cartier in Paris. Every piece Sylva designs is a limited-edition piece that is hand-wrought and hand-faceted in Los Angeles. No two pieces will ever be identical.
