Oriana is a first-generation Italian-American who has been an international jetsetter since childhood, flying back and forth to Sicily where both of her parents were born. Oriana has been inspired by the beautiful bold colors of the world and kept those in mind when creating the different collections which feature an array of semi-precious gemstones and unique color combinations. As the daughter of a well-established interior designer and granddaughter of a couturier, creativity and design are second nature to Oriana.
Oriana studied international business at St Joseph’s University. Upon graduating, she began working full time at her parent’s specialty tile and design center. Running a business is in her blood, having grown up in her parent’s store, Oriana grew from part time help after high school to naturally becoming the showroom manager where she would design kitchens and bathrooms for her clients. Oriana’s background allows her to source stones that fit her collections from all over the world with over 70 carefully selected stones that seamlessly work together.
Oriana Lamarca Designs began as a “shopping addiction”, as she affectionately likes to call it. It organically grew into a bracelet making frenzy and eventually developed into a fully bloomed company in 2015. Her passion for handcrafting jewelry sparked from a desire to have one-of-a-kind accessories that accentuated her personal wardrobe and reflected her personal style without breaking the bank. Her accessories feature an array of semi-precious gemstones and unique color combinations, which quickly became a fashion favorite among friends, colleagues, and industry leaders. Oriana Lamarca Designs is currently sold on her website, mobile app, in specialty boutiques, and to her legions of social media followers.
The jewelry you wear should make you feel unique as an individual and, at the same time, effortlessly communicate your personality with elegance and sophistication. ♥
