    Olivia Wildenstein is an up-and-coming jewelry designer based in New York. After graduating from the Lycée Francais in Manhattan in 2001, and Brown University in 2004, she went on to study at the Parsons School of Design in New York. She then undertook internships with Oscar de la Renta and other fashion houses. From here, she developed her keen eye for accessories, and naturally progressed into creating gem-set jewelry. While spending some time in Paris, she studied at the BJO (Bijouterie Joaillerie Orfèvrerie) Formation to master the art of jewelry rendering.

    Her own line of jewelry, under the name of 'Keemee', comprises individual jewels worked in 18 karat gold, diamonds, rubies, cultured pearls, tourmalines and other semi-precious stones, each of unique design. This 18 karat white gold and diamond bracelet is just one example from her beautiful collection and is truly a piece of art.
