Our Story – Kimiya

Our Story


When you support a small business, you are supporting a dream. That’s what Kimiya [pronounced “Kim-ee-ah”] is to us. It’s our labor of love and a passion that fuels us everyday. We are proud to be a company that is women-owned, minority led, and as two sisters-in-law, will always be a family business at heart.


We know that gold and diamonds are forever, and we’d like Mother Earth to be, too. We craft our jewelry from recycled gold and use ethically sourced diamonds in all of our designs. Our process reflects our lifestyle, and we are proud to donate to organizations, including food drives, local animal shelters, and sustainable farms.


KIMIYA itself is a Persian word meaning ‘alchemy’—the seemingly magical process of transformation and creation. That is what our jewelry is designed to do: transform, empower, and help you realize the most beautiful and magical aspects of yourself. We want our jewelry to be an extension of who you are and the story you want to tell, whether you are looking to add a unique piece to your everyday stack, eternalize a special milestone, or create the engagement ring of your dreams. We design all of our pieces in New York City. Every precious gemstone is handpicked for its brilliant color, luster, and character, and each piece is made to order, just for you.
