Valen & Jette is a Harlem, New York based jewelry brand that believes in the power of pairing; pretty meets edgy.
Elements of life are present in Valen & Jette, inspired by South America, Africa & personal fantasy, exotic materials and collectibles are the starting point for this brand.
The bespoke collections are handmade in Valen & Jette’s studio; a dynamic space that reflects the brand's creative approach where the designer and artisans work these materials into sophisticated, contemporary, and perfect for all occasion creations. This results in each piece carrying the soul of handwork, while remaining thoroughly modern in appearance.
The designer behind the brand is a graduate from Rhode Island School of Design with a background in Interior Architecture, she felt the pulse of her true heart’s desire and traded in her drafting pencils for jeweler’s pliers and tools. A jeweler with an architect’s dexterity, and artistic freedom, Valen + Jette calls upon the exoticism and juxtaposition of both modern styling and old world of each design.
With a large focus on sustainability and enlisting the help of local artisans including fine craftsmanship to relay our message of empowerment through our designs, Valen + Jette proudly hand makes each bespoke piece with love in New York.
