Hi! I'm Irina (she/her)
I typically introduce myself as a sustainable fine jewelry designer for simplicity. However, it's important to acknowledge "sustainable" has sadly become a buzzword used for greenwashing in marketing.
I strive to create a space where one's love for jewelry and their eco-conscious soul can coexist guilt-free. My clients participate in the slow fashion movement and circular economy by supporting my work.
My minimalist but timeless aesthetic lends itself to jewelry that can be styled effortlessly and worn daily like an extension of the body. All designs are intentionally made to order to minimize waste and maximize customization.
Running my own fine jewelry business has been a dream of mine since I was 17 years old, but I took a brief detour to get a degree in microbiology and work in biotech. In 2014, I quit my job as a lab scientist to officially launch Irina Victoria Jewelry.
To design timeless, minimalist fine jewelry that is environmentally conscious.
I honor our planet by sourcing recycled precious metals and above-ground gemstones, using recycled and recyclable plastic-free packaging, and donating a portion of every sale to wildlife conservation.
I bring joy to my customers by creating beautiful fine jewelry and providing an exceptional service experience.
My designs feature recycled precious metals and post-consumer recycled or lab-grown gemstones.
All of my production materials are purchased from trusted vendors in the USA.
Additional information can be found in the FAQ section under "Materials & Production".
All designs are made to order in the USA.
My studio is based in Los Angeles, but I also work with bench jewelers, computer-aided designers (CAD), and casters in Louisiana and Virginia.
Offering a limited selection of thoughtfully crafted pieces independent of seasonal fashion cycles helps me maintain my vision and minimize my impact on the environment.
Low-Waste & Plastic-Free Packaging
It's vital that the brand's packaging reflects my mission.
I source jewelry boxes, tissue paper, card stock, mailing envelopes, cardboard boxes, shipping labels, and kraft paper tape made from recycled + recyclable content.
I've intentionally removed all the extra stuff and only use enough packaging to keep jewelry safe in transit.
I love our planet, and I'm grateful for the wildlife that inhabits it.
Without them, ecosystems fall out of balance (including ours!), which is an alarming thought.
That’s why I donate 5% of profits from online sales to the Wildlife Conservation Network on your behalf. Donations are submitted to the charity annually.
I'm proud to call myself an intersectional environmentalist, and I love hearing your perspectives!
Advocating for planet Earth means caring for humans just as much as the flora and fauna around us.
Environmental justice can only be achieved when respect, safety, and fundamental human rights are guaranteed to everyone.
