About PADÉ Vavra

Padé Vavra was born and raised in Los Angeles and is the designer of two distinctive jewelry collections: Padé Vavra Fine Jewelry & PADÉ by Padé Vavra. Both established in 1999.


Both collections are made with love entirely in the USA. 


Padé Vavra Fine Jewelry is comprised of diamonds - which are sourced only from the diamond community who adhere to The Kimberly Process (conflict free) -gold, platinum, precious and semi-precious stones, and her signature, 50 million year-old shark teeth.

PADÉ by Padé Vavra features 22kt gold and platinum plated metal, with provocative gems.  From conception to creation, this purely artistic approach transcends trend jewelry, while always staying true to Padé's aesthetic.

Padé has been commissioned on several occasions to create one-of-a-kind engagement and wedding rings.  She can create custom pieces using her own materials or using diamonds/metal that the client may already own. Re-worked into a timeless piece that reflects each clients personal style.  Please email pade@padevavra for options or call: 213-622-0668


The lovely Mila Kunis, in the feature film "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", wore Padé’s gold vermeil shark tooth necklace, throughout the entire film. Her pieces have also been featured in hit television shows such as, Entourage, Gossip Girl, American Idol, & So You Think You Can Dance.

Additionally, Padé’s designs have been consistently featured in numerous magazines such as In Style, Elle, Lucky, W, Town & Country & Japanese Vogue.

Her pieces have been worn by some of the most respected, beautiful, and talented artists that include: Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Cameron Diaz, Michelle Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Alicia Keys, Naomi Watts, Mark Ryden, and Yoko Ono.


Majoring in Art History, she then enrolled in the Interior Design program, at UCLA. After graduating, she worked as a design assistant for two of Los Angeles’ most renowned interior designers. At that time, she discovered her passion for creating jewelry.  Her background in interior design and the arts continue to inspire her designs.
