Inspired by our Southern California coastline

Designer & Founder, Julez, at our flagship store, Gallery by Julez Bryant.

Rare and Beautiful, Real and True.

Julez started her creative journey in 2003 in Carlsbad, California, a coastal suburb of San Diego. As the director of a technology company, she developed considerable business acumen. Her ambition and creative drive was redirected when a dear friend, who later lost his life to cancer, gave her a small charm. “He inspired me to live in the moment, and focus my energy on my dreams, rather than my fears,” says Julez. Her creativity took flight when she converted that precious charm into her first jewelry design. Julez Bryant has grown organically from those very modest beginnings into a recognizable and established fine jewelry brand.

Skillfully designed & handcrafted fine jewelry made in our CA studio.

Julez Bryant was built on the foundation and belief that women should feel empowered and sexy in the jewelry they choose to adorn themselves with. Eighteen years later, Julez and her skilled and seasoned team continue to hand-forge each piece in her design studio, located along the Southern California coastline. The collection is the perfect marriage of rough and refined, fierce and feminine, combining Julez’ love of bold shapes with soft, satin finishes and delicate hand-hammered touches. Using 14k and 18k yellow, rose, and white gold with full-cut diamonds and semi-precious stones, it offers a bit of luxe for every day. Creative alchemy even reaches to the in-house refinement of gold, to get the signature blush-pink rose gold hue that Julez Bryant has been recognized for, long before rose gold was widely appreciated.

Our bench does it all - refines the gold, hand etches, sets the stones, signature finishes.

Rough and refined. Fierce yet feminine.

As a natural and ambitious risk taker, Julez continues to grow the company by adding new facets to the brand, and new and exciting collections each season.

In 2018, Julez was awarded the coveted People's Choice award at COUTURE. Along with her Master Jeweler Mohan Tharanga, she created the winning sapphire and diamond gold pendant named "The Ghostrider" as homage to their late parents.

In 2020, during the early months of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, Julez stayed focused with the opening of her flagship store, Gallery by Julez Bryant in Solana Beach, CA. This marked a great milestone for a dream that had been envisioned for years.

Julez maintains a very hands-on approach to business, valuing relationships with retailers and clients, and customer service above all. Family has always been at the center of her world, with her daughter, Gia, and son , Myles, being involved in the business over the years. Her mission is to create future heirlooms, and a jewelry box that lasts a lifetime. Truly one of a kind, Julez continues to cultivate a jewelry line that inspires women. Julez invites you to follow her creative journey, it has been an exciting ride so far, and this is just the beginning.
