Bay Area based One of a Kind & Designer Jewelry Curator
by Andrea Stiassni
The-kollective has been a vision of mine for many years. The idea is simple: to create a platform for a group of amazing and diverse jewelry designers that drives sales and promotes designer jewelry to the Bay Area Community.
Growing up in California, I have always had a passion for jewelry. Educating myself about gemstones, this passion led me to classes and ultimately a certificate from GIA. My fifteen years of expertise spans the industry. I developed my own jewelry line in the early 2000s, worked in retail stores and in- house with designers. This path helped me to realize that my greatest passion is helping to promote brands I love and build last relationships with my clients.
My ideal designers use their talents to push boundaries in design and strive to create something different, one of a kind, and unique. I seek a truly different aesthetic and find the most pleasure helping my private clients connect with a piece of jewelry that they will fall in love with.
We all know that there are a ton of amazing options out there to choose from, plus most people find shopping for jewelry an intimidating experience. Available by appointment only, the-kollective seeks to create a warm and inviting environment within a showroom space.
