Modern beauty, sex appeal, and the essence of timeless style are the grand ideas behind Lana Fertelmeister's Lana Jewelry collection. Established in 2003 and based in Chicago, Illinois; the fine jewelry line is quickly becoming one of today's leading American jewelry companies. Lana Jewelry is carried in over 100 of the most exclusive retailers across the world such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.com, jewelry giant Borsheims, and celebrity favorite Fred Segal in the US and Holt Renfrew in Canada, to name a few.
Lana Fertelmeister, designer of Lana Jewelry is known for bringing back yellow gold to the main stream and making it fashion forward and wearable for all women. The jewelry is synonymous with delicate charm, and Lana's way of mixing and combining yellow, rose, and white gold into distinctive pieces; have already developed a collector appeal.
Lana's famed baubles have garnered a cult-like following with everyday clients and celebrities like, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Katherine Heigl, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rachel Weisz, and fashion designer Monique Lhuiller. (Lana Jewelry does not gift celebrities and is honored to consider them true clients who purchase their pieces just like everyone else.)
The jewelry has appeared in TV shows like, Sex in the City, Weeds, American Idol, The View, and recently on the hit show Cashmere Mafia, as well as many feature films. Besides stunning actresses adoring Lana Jewelry™ fashion insiders have taken notice. Profiled in Lucky as "One To Watch," LA Confidential as a "Savvy Tastemaker", Chicago Social (CS) as a "Golden Girl," and in Women''s Wear Daily as "What''s In A Name," Lana has been blessed with the golden touch, according to style critics. "Lana''s collections are sleek and sexy. Her signature design offers a perfectly modern way to personalize your look," says Kristen Mulvihill, Fashion Stylist for In Style and Lucky Magazine.
Bobbie Thomas, Senior Editor of In Touch Weekly, Style Correspondent for E! Entertainment and Co-host of Fashion Police says, "After one look at Lana''s breathtaking collection, her pieces will not only be a celebrity favorite, but very shortly one of your own."
Lana resides in Chicago with the love of her life Rob, who inspired her to design the first jewelry piece in the collection… and the rest as they say….is history!
Following in the same tradition of her namesake fine jewelry collections; Lana has now turned her attention and sights on accessorizing the beauty and home fragrance arena by reinventing the most basic of the items, the candle. In development for over a year and unlike anything else in the market place, Lana has created the most opulent and luxurious candle ever. Graced with one gram of 24 karat gold flakes and hand-poured with 12 percent of a custom-blended perfume, the Lana Jewelry 24 KT Gold Heat candle is like jewelry and a piece of art.
Lana Jewelry has laid the foundation for an independent luxury brand that is known for its modern style and individuality. The core of the company is and always will be its exquisite handmade fine jewelry, which is desired by the most beautiful women in the world.
