LUCA jewelry was founded in 2012, and is short for:
‘Last Universal Common Ancestor’
We pay homage to simplicity, timelessness, and ease. Our collection of minimalist, stripped down pieces are designed to be worn like a ‘second skin’, to express life’s special milestones.
‘Luca Jewelry’ is the realization of British designer, Geeta Patel. Her earliest memory of jewelry was having her ears pierced as a child in an antiquated back room of a local Indian goldsmith’s house in London, the old-fashioned way, with a hot needle and black cotton thread.
Now based in the U.S, she has worked for designers: Chalayan, Donna Karan and Narciso Rodriguez, and has a BA and MA in fashion from London’s prestigious Central St. Martins School of Art. Her past work has appeared in Dazed & Confused, ID magazine, GQ, Time Out, amongst other publications. Luca was founded after a hiatus of 10 years during which she took time to raise her two daughters.
Utilizing materials and components almost entirely made in the U.S.A, our pieces are hand made in house or with the help of experienced craftsman in New York City’s diamond district. We pride ourselves on forging relationships built on integrity and honesty, and value the precision, multitude of skills and years of knowledge needed to create a beautiful piece of jewelry. We are one hundred percent passionate about helping to keep this trade alive.
