About MRJ

 

Hello! I am the designer and founder of Maria Regina Jewelry. I studied finance in college but quickly discovered a passion for jewelry. The simpler things in life definitely fuel my creativity. As you can see from my pieces, I like to design beautiful pieces aimed toward the bold, yet effortlessly styled, woman. Designing jewelry that is timeless, versatile and tells your story, is what inspires me. All pieces are made in 14k gold.

What We Do

 

1. Direct to consumer - Our business model is about putting the customers’ best interests first. The jewelry that you are purchasing goes straight from our jeweler’s bench to us and then directly to you. We currently do not sell to any stores and, therefore, are able to cut out any additional mark-ups to bring our customers the best prices that we possibly can.

 

2. Quality over quantity- In order to achieve and maintain a high level of quality with every one of our pieces, we only work on a few custom designs at a time. Additionally, we do not mass produce our jewelry and it is mostly “made-to-order”. We enjoy having the utmost control over our production and work closely with our jewelers. 

 

3. Custom design- We love working on custom pieces with our customers and will gladly brainstorm, quote and design ideas that you may have. In order to kickstart this process, please send us an email.

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint in the world, we have decided to introduce lab grown gemstones into our designs. As you will see in each of our listings, we give the option of having either natural diamonds and gems or lab grown stones on our pieces.

Lab grown stones, also knows as synthetic or lab created, have the same mineral composition as a natural stone mined from the earth. Not only are these gems able to be made today in a fraction of the time that it takes to be made naturally, but also at half the cost. Because the stones are made in a controlled environment, scientists are able reduce the number of inclusions and imperfections in order to produce an almost “perfect” gem.  We are very excited to be able to provide not only a more environmentally conscious product, but a more sensible piece of jewelry that you can treasure for years to come.
