Hello, and my heartfelt thank you for finding your way here.
I'm Lausanne, and while I tend to say "we" a lot, it's actually just me. I launched Shop Lausanne in January 2020 with the desire to create special, affordable, luxury jewelry.
As a life long jewelry lover I'd always found it hard to find interesting and unique jewelry that was a great quality for an affordable price point. It felt like everything out there was either beautiful but crazy expensive or in the cheap and trendy bucket that would would lose it's gold in two weeks and looked like what everyone else already had. So this jewelry line was born with the intent to offer a better, unique option.
I try to design in a way that every piece has a sense of strength to it and celebrates femininity in a balance of elegance. I'm inspired by many things, but I think mostly about how personal jewelry can be and what it can symbolize for the amazing women who may wear it.
I'm proud to be working with precious metals only, and using vermeil (which is the heaviest gold bonding over sterling silver) to provide true quality jewelry that lasts, and in designs that you'll wear endlessly.
Originally a small town midwestern girl from Iowa, I launched Shop Lausanne in Santa Monica, California after my previous career as a fashion designer and director for large companies in LA. I'm learning on this journey as I go and absolutely love to hear from you, so if you ever have questions or comments, let's chat! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or @lausannejewelry.
Thank you and shine on!
