about sydney evan

Sydney Evan, the highly acclaimed fine jewelry collection, was founded by Rosanne Karmes in Los Angeles in 2001. True to her personal philosophy and values, Karmes dedicated Sydney Evan to her family and named the collection after her two children Sydney and Evan, as well as her father SY.  It all began with one lucky horse shoe necklace and now, 17 years later, Sydney Evan has grown from a handful of styles to becoming one of the most coveted fine-meets-fashion jewelry collections worldwide.

Always on the forefront of the next big trend, Karmes’ creativity infuses her love of travel, the arts and culture with her California-chic design aesthetic to ensure a constantly evolving collection.  Made with 14 karat gold and a luxurious mix of precious and semi-precious stones, this collection is meticulously crafted with a classic, yet whimsical sensibility.

The success of the Sydney Evan brand can be attributed to Karmes’ ability to unite her deepest sources of inspiration, reflecting timeless concepts of spirituality, sentiment, and personal expression. Her pieces celebrate the uniqueness of our lives, with strong roots in family, protection, love, luck and good fortune.

Karmes pioneered the often-replicated fine beaded bracelet by updating personal and spiritual charm trends, thus modernizing the fine jewelry industry with the debut of these chic layering pieces.

Launched in 2008, her iconic script ‘love’ collection also inspired a movement, making an indelible mark on the jewelry industry.

Karmes further expanded her collection over the course the past few years to include Little Loves by Sydney Evan, a fashion-fine collection for children and the Sydney Evan Men’s collection.

Sydney Evan routinely adorns the most fabulous women in the world of celebrity, including Miley Cyrus, P!NK, Emma Roberts, Eva Chen, Nina Agdal, Rihanna, Kate Bosworth, Jennifer Lawrence, Rocky Barnes, Jennifer Hudson, Gabrielle Union, Roselyn Sanchez, Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara and Emma Stone.
