ABOUT VALE JEWELRY
The creative duo behind Vale, twin sisters Ava Bai and Eva Bai have always been fascinated with hands-on art. The New York based artisans are taking the standard of jewelry design to another level by crafting glamorous, versatile, and unique accessories with astounding vintage appeal. Both Ava and Eva share a love for design but find inspiration in different things. Therefore, it is hardly surprising the line epitomizes the dynamic interplay of two individual personalities.
Although both received their undergraduate degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, Ava and Eva found their passion in jewelry design and conducted their post-graduate studies in metallurgy and gemology. Much of Vale’s ingenious and fashionable collections are derived from their love of travel. Exposure to each culture has enriched their skill and technique of jewelry design. Such diversity allowed them to intersperse various types of stones set in vermeil, yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.
The Vale duo truly encourages the importance of personal style by extending to their clients the option to create customized pieces. Another facet of Vale is creating jewelry for the woman who desires glamour every day, not just on special occasions and pieces that are ultimately wearable. Vale’s incorporation of vintage pieces and found objects to hand-carved originals translates to unique styles that are simultaneously modern and classic. Based on organic influences in both shape and form, this fresh and feminine line is effortless as it is beautiful. Vale’s goal is to continue creating fun and unique designs to complement individual style.
On the market for only a short time, Vale’s distinctive style has already caught the eye of stylists and celebrities. Most recently, their pieces have been seen on Live! with Kelly Ripa, The David Letterman Show, the 57th Emmys, the American Music Awards, the BET Awards, and gracing the necklines of stars from ABC's hit Lost, HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, and NBC's Third Watch. Vale is available at fine boutiques such as Satine in Los Angeles, Big Drop in New York City, Elements in Chicago as well as other locations in the US, Canada, and Europe.
