Marlo Laz Necklace
|Material||14K Yellow Gold|
Jesse’s fascination with jewelry began at an early age. She inherited this appreciation for artisanal craftsmanship from her aunt, an antique jewelry dealer. At the age of 13, she was gifted a pink ruby and diamond bow brooch that had belonged to her grandmother, Miriam. She eventually transformed the heirloom brooch into a modern necklace, becoming her first step into the world of jewelry design. Jesse credits a trip to India for rediscovering her passion for jewelry design where she found herself extending time in Jaipur to work with a team of artisans, designing and overseeing the production of what would become her first jewelry collection. After years of traveling and living abroad, she returned to New York City and attended the Gemology Institute of America.
