"Graziela Kaufman 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, 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 be the inspiration for her future creations. She moved to the United State more than 17 years ago where she lives with her husband and four boys. Graziela currently resides in the Chicago area. Outside of Jewelry, one of Graziela’s passions is to make a difference in the lives of homeless and abused animals. She is involved with several organizations around the world that help rehabilitate animals of all sorts. We need to be the voice for these helpless creatures, please join us in the fight. Together we can make a difference."
