Samira 13 is a fashion jewelry line launched in 2008 by Los Angeles-based designer/sculptor Samira Sizdahkhani. Born into a fashion family, Samira started designing at age 12. Shortly after completing university, Samira worked as a fashion stylist in L.A. for a brief stint, and it was there that her love affair began for Tahitian South Sea pearls. She soon started to dream up jewelry to fulfill her own desire for versatility and a golden mean between casual and formal. This balance has become the cornerstone of the Samira 13 collection. Every piece of jewelry is hand made in Los Angeles, California by Samira. She individually selects each pearl and stone for every single pieces of jewelry she creates. The combination of her talent and devotion is what makes each piece extremely special and beautiful.
