Julez started her creative journey in 2003 in San Diego, California. As the Director of a technology company, she developed considerable business acumen. Her ambition and creative drive was redirected when a dear friend, who later lost his life to cancer, gave her a small charm. “He inspired me to live in the moment, and focus my energy on my dreams, rather than my fears,” says Julez. Julez’ creativity took flight when she converted that precious charm into her first jewelry design. Julez Bryant has grown organically from those very modest beginnings into a recognizable and established fine jewelry brand.
Julez Bryant was built on the foundation and belief that women should feel empowered and sexy in the jewelry they choose to adorn themselves with. Sixteen years later, Julez and her skilled and seasoned team continue to hand-forge each piece in her design studio, located along the Southern California coastline. The collection is the perfect marriage of rough and refined, fierce and feminine, combining Julez’ love of bold shapes with soft, satin finishes and delicate hand-hammered touches. Using 14k and 18k yellow, rose, and white gold with full-cut diamonds and semi-precious stones, it offers a bit of luxe for every day. Creative alchemy even reaches to the in-house refinement of gold, to get the signature blush-pink rose gold hue that Julez Bryant has been recognized for, long before rose gold was widely appreciated.
As a natural and ambitious risk taker, Julez continues to grow the company by adding new facets to the brand, and new and exciting collections each season. Julez’ daughter, Gia, joined her side in 2015 and together they created the powerful “Metro Collection” that has been celebrated by the press and is sought after by retailers. This capsule collection is an homage to September 11th, and the powerful geometry of the pieces represents the light-filled windows of the NYC skyline.
Together, the mother-daughter duo maintain a very hands-on approach to business, valuing relationships with retailers and customer service above all. Their mission is to create future heirlooms, and a jewelry box that lasts a lifetime. Truly one of a kind, Julez continues to cultivate a jewelry line that inspires women. Julez invites you to follow her creative journey, it has been an exciting journey so far, and this is just the beginning...
