Surrounded by artists and her family, Emily was introduced to art at a very young age. She ultimately realized her passion of designing jewelry while studying entrepreneurship coursework while obtaining her MBA. The Armenta belief is the idea that from struggle, one can discover a beauty and spirit that easiness alone cannot create. Supporting women that come from disadvantaged circumstances, Armenta educates, trains and empowers female artisans within the walls of the company and through vendor partnerships across the globe. And each piece of Armenta jewelry is handcrafted by these entrusted women using 18k gold, sterling silver, diamonds, and semi-precious stones.
