A Reinvented Art

Yvone Christa New York is famous around the world for reinventing the ancient art of traditional filigree jewelry in a modern sensibility. Every piece of jewelry is carefully hand-crafted using the Venetian filigree technique: thin silver wires delicately twisted into patterns and soldered together, and then given an aged finish. Many pieces include freshwater pearls and semiprecious stones like jade, quartz, jasper, citrine, amethyst, onyx and cubic zirconia.

Yvone Christa’s collections are inspired by flowers - Tulips, Hortensia, Daisies, or mythological and legendary places in ancient times. The Garden of Eden collection, for example, features Adam and Eve earrings, serpents writhing around aqua lemuria gemstones, and butterflies and leaves with demure baroque pearl settings.  The Chair-ity collection sought inspiration from the delicate work of vintage chairs from various stylistic periods - Victorian, Elizabethan, Gustavian, Art Nouveau and Empire.  The recent Lotus collection features designs inspired by the beauty of its namesake bloom.  Each collection is distinct yet instantly recognizable for the iconic design sensibility and technique of the Yvone Christa brand.

 True Artisans of Filigree Jewelry

Yvonne and Christina, designers and founders of Yvone Christa


 Yvone Christa was founded in 1991 in Los Angeles by Yvonne Clamf and Christina Soderstrom.  The two Swedish designers met in Rome while attending design school, and shortly thereafter relocated to Los Angeles where their first jewelry pieces were created in a small shared apartment.  Soon actresses and models discovered their unique designs and started to order custom pieces.  Yvone Christa jewelry also appeared in film and television, as well as in exhibits at the National Swedish Museum of Art (Stockholm) and The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.



Hand Crafted Filigree 

Every piece of jewelry is hand-crafted using the ancient Venetian filigree technique – therefore no two pieces are exactly alike.
