Hi! My name is Valerie Madison and I'm the owner/designer here at LilyEmme Jewelry. I strive to honor classic jewelry ideals by merging traditional jewelry designs with clean lines to create simple, elegant, and modern jewelry. Everything from LilyEmme is made to order and the range of options from bridal to everyday mean that there is something for everyone.
I design handmade engagement and wedding rings and men's wedding bands made with solid gold from recycled sources, top quality conflict-free diamonds, and hand-picked gemstones. I have a really good eye for quality workmanship and balance, traits that have lent themselves to the overall aesthetic of my artisan jewelry line.
LilyEmme Jewelry is a small business that is minority- and woman-owned and operates in Seattle, WA. As a black jewelry designer, I design and create fine jewelry in my studio with the support of a local Seattle casting house, a talented stone setter, and a master engraver. That's it! My business may not be as big as some other jewelry companies but you can bet your jewelry will get the one-on-one attention when we make it especially for you.
Your support helps LilyEmme remain a small business that will continue to support our local economy and lead by example to encourage other small business to do the same.
We aim to please and your satisfaction is so important to me. When designing and making your custom jewelry, I provide thoughtful and communicative dialogue so that you know exactly what you're getting. If you're in Seattle, I'd be happy to have you visit my jewelry studio to learn more about the creative process.
I make modern, simple, and elegant designs with the utmost attention paid to the little details. I don't make pieces that will easily bend or break as all of our jewels are made with heirloom quality in mind. Best of all, our jewelry is made-to-order meaning that none of our pieces are ever mass-produced.
Did you know that 20 tons of rock and soil can be displaced and wasted to make a single gold ring? Environmentally driven, I am passionate about gold, diamonds, and the environment and I want to do my part to help. I source my metals from recycled sources whenever possible to help reduce the stressful effects of metals mining on the Earth. We are also one of the few artisan jewelry studios using Moissanite, an a diamond alternative that requires no mining. And if you still want to go the natural diamond route, I've got you covered with conflict-free diamond options like Canadian-sourced diamonds and recycled diamonds.
Please feel free to contact me if I can help with any questions or help you make a special piece of jewelry.
