Designer Lori Kaplan’s longtime love for jewelry became a career when she began to wholesale bridge jewelry from Italy in 1989. In the summer of 2010, Kaplan’s desire to have more control over the designs led her to delve further into the industry with Lori Kaplan Jewelry Design. Her BFA from Moore College of Art is put to work with colorful designs exhibiting unexpected shapes and textures. Lori Kaplan’s talents are the life force of the brand and she does it all from designing to creation to final photography.
Colorful stones are the focus of her line and influence the unique designs. Many of her pieces feature semi-precious stones and recent pieces incorporate precious sapphires and emeralds. Her classic, sophisticated yet understated jewelry is crafted from precious and semi-precious metals including sterling silver, 14K gold fill, 10-18K gold and 22K gold vermeil. New pieces will feature additional precious metals and stones and an expansion of the 18K gold line. Lori also offers limited edition pieces and one-of-a-kind creations.
