Our Mission

To fill the world with power, love and healing through beauty, internally and externally.


About the Brand: 

Once deemed by an influential teacher, “A Bringer of Beauty”, Gretchen Ventura creates modern fine couture jewelry with simple, luxe designs. Designing Modern Forward Heirlooms requires a nod towards historical and cultural context. Gretchen’s work is both metaphysical as well as physical. She creates jewelry for women who seek to represent themselves through originality, individuality and positive energy while understanding the power of interconnectedness. The cross-section of the metaphysical and physical along with the people, cultures, food, religions, music and customs, inspire Gretchen’s work…both internally and externally. Gretchen Ventura pieces are designed and infused with positive energy from the point of conception so that cleansing energy may flow to the wearer with the intention to help clients feel honored, cared for, respected and seen. We aim to connect one’s self, others, and the world.

Gretchen Ventura pieces are shown in varying Neiman Marcus stores and high-end boutiques nationwide.

Each Gretchen Ventura piece contains a Herkimer Diamond as its tag. Considered the most powerful amplifier of spiritual energy of all Quartz Crystals, the Herkimer Diamond tag bestows a blessing of all good things onto the wearer!

At Gretchen Ventura we are committed to being kind to the planet and humanity, so we only use recycled fine metals and conflict free diamonds.
