Loren Hope is an independent jewelry company with products that are exclusively handmade in the United States. Created by designer Loren Barham, the Loren Hope collection offers an evolving line of upscale, contemporary, handcrafted jewelry. Our line is often recognized by its rich, saturated colors in designs that channel a modern-vintage sensibility.
We take pride in delivering superior craftsmanship while sourcing the finest materials. Our pieces often feature Austrian rhinestone accents, semi-precious stones, and beautiful Czech glass beads and cabachons, many of which are repurposed vintage stones no longer in production. Our metals are primarily brass with a high quality gold plate.
Each piece of Loren Hope jewelry is individually hand-crafted with traditional jewelry making techniques and inspected against flaws before heading to our customers.
"Jewelry design has always found a way into my life. One of my fondest memories as a little girl is playing in my Grandmother's thrift shop. She would let me plunder around for hours and I would take apart all sorts of old jewelry and re-assemble the baubles into new combinations.
I am also a huge fan of vintage jewelry. I have always been intrigued with antiques and relics from our past – the colors, craftsmanship, quality and attention to detail in vintage jewelry are constant inspirations for me."
We are committed to keeping our products American-made, and are thankful that our customers continue to support us in this choice. Our work celebrates the rich history of Rhode Island’s jewelry-making industry we are proud to be even a small a part of its resurgence.
