Minabea Custom features handcrafted, artisan jewelry using precious metals, minerals, and semi-precious gemstones to create custom necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. From our studio in Los Angeles, Minabea Jewelry employs traditional jewelry techniques whereby gold and silver jewelry components are hammered, rolled, soldered and fabricated to produce custom created designs.

Crash by Minabea is our newest collection of eco-friendly jewelry. We use scrap metal from luxury Mercedes-Benz and other European cars to create fashionably edgy bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings for individualists who care about the environment (and wearing cool jewelry!)

Our Every Day by Minabea collection features 18k gold plated bracelets, earrings, and necklaces designed with a geo-modern sensibility.

New! Gift Certificates for any occasion!
