Launched in 2008 by Los Angeles-based designer/sculptor Samira Sizdahkhani, Samira 13 Fine Jewelry is a stunningly original collection of necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets made from unorthodox combinations of distressed metals, rose, yellow and white gold, tattered silks and chiffons, raw leathers, uncut polished diamonds and Tahitian South Sea pearls.
Samira Sizdahkhani began designing at age 12 in the workshop of her mother’s famed D.C. fashion mecca, Tabandeh. Exposed early to the ethos of cross-cultural design and driven by a personal desire for versatility, the designer closes the gap between casual and formal, creating architectural designs inspired by primitivism, tribal cultures, monasticism and dreams of ancient Persian nomadic treks. The collection, which retails from $300 to $10,000, is available in her newly-launched eponymous boutique at 8661 Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood, 8 Fifteen in Indianapolis, Alan Bilzerian in Boston, and Assembly in New York City.
Celebrity fans of the Samira 13 collection include Kate Moss, Jessica Biel, Madonna, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Alba, Chelsea Handler, Christina Ricci, Samantha Droke, Madeleine Stowe, Debra Messing, to name a few. Three of these ladies have been spotted wearing Samira 13 jewelry at different events recently – Samantha Droke, Madeleine Stowe and Debra Messing.
