Rise Jewelry is a Manhattan grown & nurtured, now Laguna Niguel based private label jewelry company committed to production in America.

Rise provides fine components customers desire: gemstones from india, pearls harvested in japan, cording crafted in france. in addition, the hand-dyed linen pouches, cellophane wrapping, card/paper stock, and shipping materials are not just sourced in america, all is made in america. 

Every unit is created & treated as a treasure.  All output is produced with goodness & good-will standards.  Rise is dedicated to eco-friendly measures like post-consumer waste products, non-toxic dyes, and using 80% recycled metal components.

Design focus lends itself towards the delicate and layered; for all day and everyday wear. 
The principle structure is a rosary wire wrap.  Three twists of wire along with two hand-formed loops affix a center stone.  This time-honored & meditative technique allows for the stones to be the focal point and the resulting chain formation is incredibly strong.

Be it through stone properties or a cause behind its creation, each style tells a story and carries a little spirited whimsy and gives a modern twist to spiritual adornment.

The soul of Rise is a 4 year old Jessica Clare cutting jewelry out of a JCPenney catalog in suburban Cleveland.  
With tape and scissors, a first collection was born.

Twenty years later, the private label jewelry industry in New York found her creating collections for such prestigious clients as Barney’s co-op, Jcrew, Takashimaya, Blue Fly, Anthropologie, Banana Republic, Free People, Red Envelope, Harvey Nichols, Henri Bendel, Longchamp, Rugby Ralph Lauren, Gap-red and Kate Spade.

Additionally, Jessica's work was presented and fronted in publications- WWD*cover*, Elle*cover*, Vogue, In Style, Self, O Magazine, Vibe, Lucky, Organic Style, Latina, Time Out New York, Marie Claire and. Essence.

In 2010, the magic of parrots in northern Goa at dusk and a beloved memory surrounding graph paper gave life to an internal rise and the seeds of Rise Jewelry.  

Jessica’s work embodies a modern handmade aesthetic, a vibrant celebration of antiquity and a deep reverence for all things esoteric.
