Khadijah + Maki

Khadjiah (left) and Maki (right).

We always say that our jewelry is much more than an accessory. It’s a symbol for meaning, memories and the values you hold close to your heart and it’s our in-house design team leading the way by creating from the ground up.

We sat we down with Khadijah, our Jewelry Designer (who you met earlier this year), and Maki, our Product Development Manager, to discuss exactly how they’ve reimagined the classic styles within our new Diamond Bezel Collection made with our sustainably created, 100% carbon neutral diamonds.

We always say that our jewelry is much more than an accessory. It’s a symbol for meaning, memories and the values you hold close to your heart and it’s our in-house design team leading the way by creating from the ground up.

We sat we down with Khadijah, our Jewelry Designer (who you met earlier this year), and Maki, our CAD Designer, to discuss exactly how they’ve reimagined the classic styles within our new Diamond Bezel Collection made with our sustainably created, 100% carbon neutral diamonds.

"It’s so bonding to face a challenge, put our collective knowledge together, experiment and arrive at a place where we both go, “That’s it!”

"It’s so bonding to face a challenge, put our collective knowledge together, experiment and arrive at a place where we both go, 'That’s it!'”

1. What's your favorite design in our new Diamond Bezel collection?

Maki: That’s a hard one! I personally have a special place in my heart for the Baguette Diamond Bezel Necklace. It’s so understated and elegant with a bit of an edge.

Khadijah: Probably the rings. I love how classic they look from the top view and then the sides are so open and unexpected with a little bit of an edge. It’s like a little secret just for the person who’s wearing it.

 

2. What's your day-to-day like at Vrai?

M: I take our final approved designs and CAD them, meaning I create 3D models or technical illustrations of our jewelry so they can be produced by our manufacturers. It’s a lot of sharing ideas, concerns and creative problem solving. If I’m not creating cads, I’m working directly with my team- Khadijah, Charlotte (Director of Product Development & Production) and Vanessa (our Founder and Creative Director).

K: Every day is different but it’s usually a combination of working on new designs and following up on designs that are currently in the works. I check in with Maki and Charlotte and then work on details or initial sketches for new designs.

4. What's it like to collaborate in-house?

M: It’s so rewarding. We each bring something to the table. It’s so bonding to face a challenge, put our collective knowledge together, experiment A TON and arrive at a place where we both go, “That’s it! Let’s give it wings and see how it flies.”

K: It’s so much fun. Brainstorming, trial and error, looking at things from every angle. Working with Maki is great, because she is able to take something that may be a loose concept or something where I think I know what it’s going to look like but maybe there is an angle or area that I can’t quite visualize- and she gives it a very specific 3D form that we can refine down to a fraction of a millimeter. Our partnership is a great example of how traditional design and technology can go hand in hand and result in a better final idea in the end. Also - she’s hilariously funny and cracks me up all the time! 

 

4. Vrai means "true" in French, what's true to you?

K: Elegance and integrity in design, courage and patience in life.

M: To be unabashedly, uncompromisingly yourself. Mistakes are really the most valuable teachers; so don’t let the fear of “failing” stop you from doing what you want to accomplish or become.

"We wanted to make sure that if you happen to glance down at your ring, is there something interesting there to explore?"

5. What do you enjoy most about your role at Vrai?

M: Being able to translate 2D designs into three-dimensional, digital objects is so fun. You run into a lot of hurdles but it’s like puzzle-piecing things together, anticipating what the customer wants, seeing this concept come to fruition and knowing that people see something of themselves in our designs. This always moves me – the way people light up when they wear something that means so much to them never gets old.

K: I love creating designs that make memories and capture sentiments for our community. Whether it’s an engagement ring, wedding band or one of our essential jewelry pieces, it’s so much fun to come up with new ideas that will go on to become a meaningful part of someone’s life.

 

6. For Khadijah – what inspired the Diamond Bezel Collection?

K: I was really inspired by the prospect of giving our customers something unexpected. ‘How can we take something that looks classic at a glance, make it timeless and easy to wear, but also something more than meets the eye?.’ We wanted to make sure that if you happen to glance down at your ring, is there something interesting there to explore?

Our signature bezel is such a beautiful setting because of that strong frame around the stone, but often you lose brightness because it’s enclosed. I'm really proud of this collection – we wanted to get more light into the diamond, so that it really sparkles and shines.

 

7. How is our Diamond Bezel Collection unique?

K: I think it is a great example of how we think through every piece and focus on introducing original details that make our pieces distinct. The design details are pushing traditions forward while still being incredibly wearable. We’re creating our own modern classics and that reinforces our commitment to our broader mission of modernizing the jewelry industry as a whole.

M: I think this collection shows that we’re making bolder, more thoughtful choices. We are really honing in to what we see as fresh, contemporary designs that have enduring, classic beauty.
