Every piece of jewelry in the collection has been created to bring an aura of sensuality and romance to each bride or bridesmaid wearing it. Every piece has been made with the sole purpose of bringing quality materials and glamourous designs to women in what is one of their most important days of their lives.

About the designer

At the very early age of ten, Loella Medina was introduced to the world of jewelry making by her father who ventured into making earrings after finding a box of pliers and beads at a construction site. For a few years in the late 1980s Mr. Medina's vintage crystal and vintage button earrings were all the rage amongst women in the Dominican Republic. Two years later, when her father gave up jewelry making, Loella found herself making full sets of jewelry for her mother, her sister and herself using the books and tools her father had used in the past to make earrings. Loella's mother still keeps all of the jewelry pieces made for her by her daughter.
