Chan Luu Jewelry was created by a woman of the same name from South Vietnam. She always had a passion for handcrafting, and after moving to America, went to Los Angeles to study fashion design. Her jewelry brand was launched in 1996, with a strong emphasis on handcrafted items. In fact, the company guarantees each product is made by hand. The idea is that by using this creation standard, all jewelry has a unique and authentic feel. The brand has since expanded to include men’s jewelry, scarves and apparel.
2016 has seen some exciting new products from Chan Luu. There is the One-of-a-Kind line, which features simplistic jewelry designs of rings and bangles accentuated by diamonds. Then there’s Gold and Silver Natural Mixes, casual jewelry with an organic feel that are designed to be in season for the spring. Shore Side is a line with gorgeous blue hues inspired by the ocean. Blue Crush is a larger extension, with colors ranging from sea foam to royal blue and turquoise. Coral color is a big part of their 2016 offerings, with orange and gold hues featured on earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
