6 Local Jewelry Startups to Watch in 2015

By

Bay Area jewelry designers are launching new ways to make your bling dreams come true. Here are just a few of our favorites:


Rocksbox

After answering a few simple questions, Rocksbox will handpick three original pieces for you. Wear the sparklers as long as you'd like, then ship them back when you're done. Membership has a flat rate of $19/month, which scores you $200 worth of accessories from such lines as Kendra Scott, Gorjana, House of Harlow, and Loren Hope. 

Teaman & Company

Teaman & Company provides gorgeously colored gemstones from all over the world. Women and men alike can collaborate with the private concierge to create personalized engagement rings, too. Also in the works? A 3D-printed inventory so you can try on samples prior to manufacturing. Still in beta, look for Teaman & Company to go live in this fall.

DearMissJ

DearMissJ gives you the chance to shop hand-made jewelry from Seoul, South Korea. Order a few items, try them on, and return the ones you don't like. Simple enough. 

Cuff

Cuff provides accents and bling with connectivity. Necklaces, wristbands, keychains—all of their accessories have a hidden wireless device that acts as an emergency system. Should a dire situation arise, simply press the button, and your selected group of loved ones will receive an alert, letting them know you need help.

FitBit + Tory Burch

A stellar partnership: FitBIt, local wearable technology company, and Tory Burch, noted fashion designer, joined forces to create stylish accessories for the Flex line. Pendants, bracelets, and wristbands designed by Tory Burch will hold your Fitbit Flex tracker. The collection includes a Metal Fret Pendant, made of brass and based on the decorative open fretwork (Tory Burch's signature).

Tola Jewelry

Each piece of Tola Jewelry is like a tiny contemporary sculpture infused with an old-world aesthetic. Accessories can be personalized for special occasion or just everyday use.
