We are what we remember…we are our memories. Rooted in human psychology, Shahla Karimi jewelry seeks to capture the deep-seated longing of human beings to embrace and express their memories. Each piece of jewelry reveals a story, each collection romanticizes a memory of times past. All pieces are hand-made in New York City with recycled gold and conflict-free stones. The brand officially launched in S/S 15 and has adorned the hands and ears of Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Graham, Rebecca Hall, Lena Dunham, Carrie Underwood, Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, and Gigi Hadid and has been featured in over fifty publications including Elle, Vogue, AD, Harper’s Bazaar, Wallpaper, W, The Coveteur, InStyle, WWD, and NY Magazine and has been on the cover of Nylon, Women’s Health and Self. The line is sold exclusively online. The first Shahla Karimi concept guide shop opened in June 2020 in Brooklyn, New York.
