As our travel plans are set on hold, I am taking a look back on how we got here & how Dylan Rose came to be. Inspired by traveling, relationships and giving back to the community that made our jewels.
As a buyer for various retailers and wholesale merchant, I was given the greatest gift in life. The opportunity to travel the world finding jewelry and accessories from amazing vendor partners. It opened my eyes to a whole ecosystem of makers. I grew up in a family that loved to travel so I was bit with the travel bug early in life. So, traveling as a part on my job was unreal. I loved how different parts of the world specialized in different techniques that were unique and special to them. I traveled to Peru, Turkey, Japan, India, China, Nepal, Australia and the United Kingdom finding inspiration and working with factories and jewelry makers. Most often I would spend long periods of time in India. India is a magical place and their textiles and design aesthetic really spoke to me. Jaipur is in Rajasthan, an area in India that is has an old-world opulence that is like no other. Instantly, you are transported back in time and your old life disappears and you step into a world that is simpler and hectic as hell at the same time. India’s vast population hits you in the face as soon as you set foot off the plane. There are people in the roads, elephants in the roads, camels, you name it. It’s orchestrated chaos that’s loud & yet beautiful.

We work with one maker in Jaipur that we cultivated a strong relationship with over the last 7 years. Life is all about relationships and you never know where one will lead to another. When I decided to launch Dylan Rose I knew I wanted our jewelry to be made in Jaipur with our partners. The jewelry in Jaipur is like no other. We are very excited to bring you our latest collection of must-have hoops & bracelets for summer. Mix and match, layer and wear year-round. Our pierces are timeless.
