Shop Lausanne is a small, female owned and run jewelry brand founded in 2020 from Santa Monica, California.
I'm Lausanne, and while I tend to say "we" sometimes, it's actually just me here. After 15 years as a fashion designer and director in Los Angeles I launched Shop Lausanne Jewelry in January 2020 with the desire to create unique, meaningful, fine jewelry at an attainable price point. And to fill the void I was always on the hunt for myself; for those truly special pieces that spoke to me, represented something I was feeling, were unlike anything else, and of true quality.
I developed this brand with the intention to offer a better, uniquely beautiful option. To create jewelry that celebrates the strength and depths of you, and represents something deeper inside. I believe jewelry to be a deeply personal expression and cherish the gift it is to create it.
I try to design in a way that every piece has a sense of strength and edge to it and at the same time celebrates femininity in a balance of that strength. I get inspired by many things; travel, those around me, art, interiors, fashion (of course), but what I think about the most is a connection to a feeling or relationship and how the jewelry can symbolize that and hold it sacred or as a reminder and encouragement to you.
I'm proud to be working with precious metals only, and using gold vermeil (which I'm obsessed with and you can read more about here
) and semi precious stones as the perfect solution to create fine jewelry at a treat yourself price.
A designer at heart, I used to think that bringing a vision to life was the most fulfilling thing, but as a business owner now, seeing you connect with a piece has become the most special thing to me and I love hearing from you!

Originally a small town midwestern girl, I studied design in Chicago and found myself firmly planted in my California after that. I'm based in sunny Santa Monica, and you can find me bouncing back and forth from LA to various markets across the US and hopefully some inspirational travel in there too. If I could spend my time doing anything I wanted it'd be; creating, reading fiction novels, world traveling, wine-tasting, and laughing with dear friends.
