Aprés Jewelry was founded in 2017 by Amanda Thomas, designer of the LA-based costume jewelry line, Luv Aj. With over 15 years experience in the jewelry business and as a recent addition to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, Amanda’s foray into fine jewelry was sparked when she got engaged in 2014. Amanda and her husband designed her ring together, a unique hexagon-halo set rose gold ring, that made some waves on the internet after their wedding and accompanying jewelry was featured on Refinery 29. An influx of emails came in to Amanda with requests for custom engagement rings, and from there the concept of Aprés Jewelry was born.
Aprés Jewelry is a fine jewelry line that specializes in alternative bridal- from engagement rings, to wedding bands, to men’s rings, to bridesmaids gifts. After getting engaged and really searching the market for chic and affordable fine jewelry for my wedding, I was shocked at how scarce the options were. I really wanted to fill the gap and create amazing engagement rings and wedding bands that were substantial and didn’t break the bank. I’m excited to be able to offer brides-to-be a ‘build your own’ ring experience through our site. We offer 12+ engagement ring styles that you can mix and match together with your stone of choice. In addition, we carry over 35 wedding bands for the bride and groom, and a range of necklaces and earrings under $500 that are perfect gifts for bridesmaids too. Aprés Jewelry should be your one-stop-shop for all things bridal, and just great fine jewelry in general- pieces you put on once and never take off.
Aprés means after, and this is my next journey after Luv Aj. I hope you love the pieces as much as I do! xx Amanda
