Eli Jewels is a family run business whose heritage goes back over 300 years. Eli, the father and patriach if the family, was a world renown master jeweler who specialized in handmade filigree jewelry. He also owned a jewelry store in New Orleans for 30 years. His son’s, Fred and Simon, grew up in the business. It was no surprise when they returned home from Louisiana State University and founded Eli Jewels in 1993.
The brothers have collaborated on designing almost every piece of jewelry from the beginning of the company. Their fashion collections put a contemporary spin on the designs of the ancient Etruscans, Romans and Greeks. Every fashion ring, bracelet, necklance and earrings require highly skilled artisans to apply every bead, bezel, and wire twist.
