Based in New York and sold at FiveStory, Ilana Ariel pieces are one of a kind drawing inspiration from the generations of women in her family. These heirloom pieces reflect an appreciation for asymmetry while still maintaining a unique balance through the designers sense of colour and proportion. Made with simple shapes of triangles and waves, these pieces are classic but with an elegant twist that can be worn by women of all ages.
Designer Ilana Sarna originally went to law school to become a lawyer, but her appreciation to learn the art of jewellery making blossomed and she decided to switch career paths to become a jewellery designer. Distinguished by a blending of polished and edgy aesthetics, the jewellery is all made from 14K or 18K gold and set with precious stones. The collection has quickly gained celebrity fans including Emma Roberts, Lake Bell, and Laura Prepon.
She is constantly inspired by landscapes, both natural and manmade, as well as by various textiles and adornments from around the world, namely those she discovered while traveling in South America. With a love of photography, Ilana also uses images that she’s captured to enhance the jewelry making process.
