Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, private meetings are available to purchase some of these lasting keepsakes. We had a chance to get up close and personal with the creator of these unique, luxurious, and stylish works of art.
Dena Kemp: I was always fascinated by Old Hollywood glamour, so I wanted to create artistic pieces that would resonate with new contemporary Hollywood, and still appeal to my peers. My target market was always an affluent clientele. My father was a very successful man, so I grew up in an affluent lifestyle. It came naturally to me to establish my business within an affluent network as well.
Dena Kemp: My jewelry is very artistic. It’s one of a kind. Every attention to detail is carefully thought out. There is so much passion in it; so much quality in it. There is a high degree of attention to every piece. We have all stone cutters and vendors from all over the world visiting us so we acquire the most beautiful jewels and metals. We work with so many different kinds of people. Plus I pay cash for everything and I am fast.
Dena Kemp: We like to keep our line fresh and always come up with new concepts. We work with many international clients and they each have unique clientele. We are always tailoring our designs to suit the wants of the clientele. We are also partnering with LVMH for their international branches creating an original collection for them. Every year, we do 10 crazy pieces. We are a small company so we can adjust our designs, and this keeps us on the edge.
Dena Kemp: I don’t have a favorite.While I’m creating a piece, I am obsessed with it until it’s done. Then my brain wants to move on to the next one, and solve new problems.
Dena Kemp: Most of our diamonds come from Canada or Australia. None from Africa, we don’t want to use any blood diamonds. Others come from Burma, Brazil, Colombia, and other parts of the world.
Dena Kemp: We are known for our causal diamond line with a price point of about $5k- $15K. Of course, we sell very high end diamond pieces up to 30ct-50ct diamonds. Our best price point is between $15K-$35K.
Dena Kemp: Because jewelry is associated with beauty. It brings light to your face, and makes your eyes sparkle. It’s a status symbol for the royals and emperors all over the world. Jewelry is an accessory. No outfit is complete without jewelry.
Dena Kemp: The purpose in my work is to create happiness in the heart. Jewelry is very healing to the soul; you look good and feel good, and it makes you happy.
