“I design jewelry with the method of 3D printing, as well as traditional handcrafting techniques. What makes Sara Shala Design so special is that we are able to take the vision from the first sketch to a final polish all under one roof. I love being in control of the process, and make sure each step is handled with careful consideration and meticulous detail. At Sara Shala, we cherish traditional craftsmanship required to make true fine jewelry. This is why we pride ourselves on building lasting relationships with our artisans and suppliers,”

Our Stones

  • Conflict-free Diamonds

    At Sara Shala, we work with ethically-sourced stones certified according to the Kimberley Process (KPCS), an internationally recognized certification system that prevents conflict diamonds from entering legitimate trade.
  • Cultivated Diamonds

    Depending on the clients’ preferences and the unique design of each piece, we also work with cultivated or lab-grown diamonds. Chemically, physically and optically identical to naturally-mined diamonds, each stone is unique, based on the slither it was grown from.
  • Metals

    At Sara Shala, we always strive to execute our designs with the use of the best materials available in the marketplace. From silver and gold-plated pieces to designs in precious sunny-yellow 14k gold or fine platinum, Sara Shala creates jewelry for a lifetime of daily wear.

    “Naturally flawless or uniquely-shaped, I personally hand-pick each gemstone, making sure that Sara Shala Design remains to be widely recognized for its exceptional quality,”

“I strongly believe in using my entrepreneurial success as a platform to give back to my community and the causes I believe in. Working with global charitable organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, UN Women, the IRC, St. Jude’s, Make a wish Foundation, to make a difference in people’s life has been an import part of my personal journey. Having a cancer-survivor in my family and going through a financial hardship in the aftermath, I have a first-hand experience of how kindness of strangers can be truly life-altering. Whether I’m helping to fund an educational program or giving books to a local library, helping with relocation, or raising funds for a chemotherapy treatment, I believe in taking action to make the world better,”
