Sydney Evan is a jewelry label with a higher consciousness. Peace signs, crosses, ankhs, and evil eyes are just some of the many spiritual symbols that Rosanne Karmes, the company’s California-based designer, reinterprets in diamonds, rhodium, and other precious stones and metals. Founded in 2001, Sydney Evan has blossomed into a diverse jewelry line separated into categories such as the Edge (skulls and safety pin earrings, guns, and other edgy or punk-rock designs), Duality (lotus pendant necklaces, yin yang bracelets, and ankh charm bracelets), the Discs (disc-shaped, pave diamond pendant necklaces), and the Words (featuring the love ring, in which the word "love" is spelled out in a range of precious materials). Perhaps the most impressive, however, is Mammoth: a collection of bangle and beaded bracelets made from authentic fossilized mammoth tusks (an animal-friendly alternative to elephant ivory). Always evolving and fresh, Sydney Evan has become a label of choice among celebrities such as Demi Moore and the Olsen twins.
