Santa Fe artist Karen Melfi specializes in naturally colored diamonds set with 18K and 22K gold. Her dynamic artistry is greatly inspired by the elegant lines of Japanese design and artifacts from around the world, particularly Tibet, China and North Africa. These various elements are combined to create a unique, contemporary handcrafted opulence for any occasion.

Polished, cubed and faceted diamonds of earth colors strung with gold accents and clasps create dynamic and delightfully distinct necklaces which bridge both day and night, casual and formal, with ease and great style. Each piece reflects the natural beauty and atmosphere of Santa Fe, creating a one-of-a-kind aesthetic that makes a beautiful addition to any jewelry box.

Karen Melfi has been living and creating in Santa Fe for nearly thirty years. She began selling her collection at her eponymous gallery on Canyon Road twenty five years ago and in the years since has become renowned nationally for her work. She recently closed her gallery to devote herself to further developing her collection, which is currently sold exclusively at Santa Fe Dry Goods.
