Aurora Lopez Mejia is one of those women who is a true gypsy at heart. She is from Guadalajara, Mexico but has lived in New York for decades. She travels the world constantly in her indefatigable search for inspiration. Her studio in SoHo is an incredible oasis in the middle of the chaos of my beloved New York City. She adores champagne -like I do- and has even named one of the rooms in the studio with an eponymous "Aurora's Champagne Room". Her jewelry is beyond words. Each piece is hand-made and customized to tell the story of Aurora's lucky clients -those whose lives can be represented with words that are intimate and meaningful-. I was truly blown away by Aurora's sweetness, hospitality and extraordinary class and savoir-faire.
“In my family, we really know how to wear jewelry. I’ve always approached it as benchmarks. With my own line, jewelry became canvases on which I inscribe what’s memorable. It’s very different from other lines.”
