The Story of Lana Jewelry: The Queen of Hoops
The sleek and sexy Lana Jewelry was founded in 2002, with gold wire Upside-Down Hoop earrings making their debut as the brand’s first collection. The first impression of this particular piece of jewelry has been consistently positive in all the years since, making it the best-selling style to this day, with more than 150,000 pairs sold around the globe. Ten years after the launch of Lana Jewelry, Lana Bramlette receives the Alumni of the Year and Fashion Achievement Award from her hometown alma mater, Columbia College Chicago.
A few things set the Lana line apart: 14kt yellow gold remains the main protagonist of pieces, with white and rose gold finishes also available; a high-polish finish; and a variation on the diagonal faceted chain of the Blake collection.
