The designer behind Graziela, Graziela Kaufman, grew up in Brazil learning about the incredible natural resources the country has to offer. She says her backyard was a ‘gemological treasure’. Graziela traveled to many different mining towns throughout Brazil learning about the fascinating history behind every stone that would ultimately be the inspiration for her future creations. Learning from her grandfather, Graziela hand-designs every piece in her extensive collection.
The designer is certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in Colored Gems, Diamonds and jewelry making and is part of The Contemporary Jewelry Design Group. Her beautifully designed pieces are adored by celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts and many more.
Graziela moved to the United states more than 20 years ago and currently resides in Chicago, IL with her husband and four boys.
