When most people think of California engagement rings, they immediately imagine the 3-carat-plus rocks worn by Hollywood A-listers. But California jewelry has much more to offer than the oversized diamond engagement rings worn by the stars. In Northern California, jewelers are combining classic jewelry techniques with Silicon Valley innovation to create new and exciting trends in the jewelry industry. Even in the Los Angeles area, jewelers in Orange County offer laid-back baubles that can be worn with the most casual Californian wardrobe, while others specialize in eco-friendly recycled diamonds that even the most environmentally-conscious citizen would be proud to wear.
Like many states, California is home to an independent jewelers’ organization—in this case, the California Jewelers Association—that supervises many elements of the California jewelry industry. In fact, the CJA is the largest such organization in the United States. The CJA recently launched TheCaratDiet.com, an invaluable resource to anyone shopping for jewelry in California. In addition to news, style advice, and diamond education, the website offers an overview of some of the most reputable jewelers that are members of the CJA. It can be a great way for a shopper to discover new and little-known jewelers.
In the Los Angeles area, of course, Rodeo Drive still reigns supreme as the iconic shopping destination. There are plenty of California jewelry shopping options near the Drive—from famous names like David Yurman and Bulgari to up-and-coming designers like David Orgell and Richard Mille. Even shoppers who can’t budget the astronomical price tags of these boutiques will gain plenty of style inspiration from a day of window-shopping around Rodeo Drive. Almost every major jewelry designer in the world is represented here—from Chopard and Van Cleef and Arpels to Cartier and Harry Winston.
