Graziela Kaufman, founder and lead designer of Graziela Gems is certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in coloured gems, diamonds and jewellery making, and also part of the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group. Her beautifully designed pieces are adored by celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Khloe Kardashian and many more.
Learning from her grandfather, Graziela hand-designs every piece. She grew up in Brazil learning about many of the natural resources the country has to offer. Her backyard was a ‘gemological treasure’. She traveled to many different mining towns throughout Brazil, learning about the fascinating history behind every stone that would ultimately inspire her future creations.
Graziela Gems takes pride in using gems that are mined safely and ethically. Every gem used is ethically sourced where human and environmental safety is at the forefront, places such as Canada, Brazil, Australia, and India and Botswana. They also source their gems directly from the miners, cutting out any third party to verify their ethical standards.
Outside of the jewellery business, one of Graziela’s passions is to make a difference in the lives of homeless and abused animals. She is involved in several organizations around the world that help rehabilitate animals of all sorts. She seeks to be the voice for these helpless creatures, relentlessly rallying like-minded individuals to make a difference.
