Ariana Ost grew up in the jewelry industry, accompanying her father on business trips around the world. Learning to live and breathe jewelry gave her insight on how things get done. Paris is her life's passion, and anything French enchants her and inspires all of her designs. She went to Parsons School of Design both in NYC and Paris, and also took jewelry classes in London at Central Saint Martins to learn metal smithing and bench work.
Ariana learned the ropes designing private label for seven years, becoming a 'jewelry psychologist' as she gained understanding of people's motivation to wear what they wear. This helped her to constantly renew and refresh her designs. Antique treasure hunting and sourcing the unexpected provided her with the confident conviction that creating anything is possible.
