The creative duo behind Vale, twin sisters Eva Bai and Ava Bai, have always been fascinated with hands-on art. Crafting glamorous, versatile, and understated accessories with a modern yet approachable appeal, the New York-based artisans are taking the standard of jewelry design to another level. As creative forces, Eva and Ava share a love for design but find inspiration in different things; therefore, it is hardly surprising the line epitomizes the dynamic interplay of two individual personalities. Although both received their undergraduate degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, Ava and Eva found their passion in jewelry design and conducted their post-graduate studies in metallurgy and gemology. The brand’s focus on an uncommon mix of gemstones including diamond slices, grey diamonds and a wide range of cuts have helped Vale build a clientele looking for elegant pieces with a focus on each gem’s unique features. For the last decade, Vale Jewelry has established itself as the go-to brand for both modern and alternative brides looking for bespoke engagement rings and wedding bands. Using recycled gold and responsibly-mined diamonds and gems, the line believes in creating beautiful pieces through sustainable sourcing and ethical practices.
