Born and raised in Brazil, Graziela Kaufman was surrounded by the local gemological treasures from an early age. Traveling to different mining towns, she learned firsthand about the great gifts Mother Earth provides and the environmental obligations that come with them. From these experiences, Graziela gleaned the importance of knowing the origin of every gemstone, to ensure responsible sourcing and the use of conflict-free stones – she brings this approach to every piece of jewelry designed and crafted by Graziela. Inspired by her Italian jeweler grandfather to strive for perfection in every bejeweled creation, Graziela intertwines the natural beauty of gemstones with elegant, original designs. Caring for animals is a deep-rooted passion for Graziela, and a portion of all sales from the collection benefits conservation and animal welfare efforts.
