Lika Behar was born in the magnificent city of Istanbul. With roots in ancient Anatolian civilizations, this former Byzantine capital has evolved into a cosmopolitan metropolis which juxtaposes sublime historical architectural expressions within a modern skyline. As such, Istanbul is known as one of the truly great romantic destinations of the world and is the fundamental source of inspiration for the Lika Behar Collection.
Lika’s family lineage is one of storied gold coin dealers; a trade long believed to be the lifeline of the Mediterranean. Her collection elegantly reconciles the rich inspiration of ancient jewelry traditions, utilizing only pure and nimble 24 Karat gold. The results are pieces wrought with a sensual and tactile modernism. The 2008 collection is also infused with brilliant gemstones reflecting the varying hues that recall the depths of blue waters that cradle Lika’s birth country. Her workroom in Istanbul deftly reconciles ancient history with the sensibility of the modern world. Each piece from the collection is uniquely hand wrought with the exquisite precision once celebrated by ancient artisans; yielding a tawny luxury fit for the modern woman whose jewelry reflects, at the same time ancient history, and the art that is the modern feminine spirit.

To say that Lauren inherited the family jewels is an understatement. She is the fourth generation to run the prestigious N. Zaidens Co., a leader in the fine jewelry arena for over 90 years. During her college years Lauren began working alongside her grandfather learning not only the mechanics, but also the artistry of fine jewelry. She continued her interest in the company during law school and soon after graduation realized that the family business was not only in her blood, but also in her heart.
Lauren began working under her grandfather full time, and after his retirement, took over as President. After only two short years, she indelibly carved her niche in the family tree by launching the Lauren K collection. Her inspiration for the line was not from a particular stone or setting, but instead, the women she wanted to reach with her designs â€“ women who want feminine, beautiful jewelry that they can buy for themselves and wear everyday like their favorite perfume. Unlike other lines, the Lauren K collection is not made for a jewelry box; it is designed to complement a woman’s lifestyle. The collection premiered in 1997 and was immediately well received. Lauren is committed to evolving the line while keeping in mind the ever-changing lives of the women who bring her designs to life.

“I truly love the art of self expression and the craft of jewelry design.” – Samantha Louise Larkins
Samantha Louise Jewelry was founded in 2007. It grew out of a life long passion for art, design, and jewelry. Samantha believes that jewelry can reveal intimate secrets about the most import moments of our lives. Everyday, we wake up and choose to arm ourselves with the strand of pearls passed down from our grandmother, the wedding band from our husband or wife, or the earrings given to us when we graduated from college. Those pieces serve as a constant reminder of who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. At Samantha Louise Jewelry, we have been blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the happiest and most memorable moments of people’s lives.
We hope that you love our handmade designer jewelry and that they speak to your aesthetic, style, and identity.
