Our Story


Jewelries carry meanings and memories.

And our well made and lasting jewelries will carry yours beyond time. 

Over the years we've seen people paying too much money for jewelries of suboptimal quality, which are thrown away later and creates more waste to the environment.

We want to change this:

  • We use quality materials that are sourced ethically
  • We apply expert craftsmanship to every piece of jewelry; co-founder Annie (GIA Graduate Gemologist) personally inspects every custom design piece
  • We price our jewelries fairly, by cutting out the middlemen and not engaging in big budget marketing campaigns 
  • We provide lifetime jewelry care service for every piece of jewelry bought with us 

The Founders

Vivi & Ann founders

Vivi & Ann was founded by Vivienne Wang and Annie Fu in New York City in 2012. Vivienne is a designer and photographer from Shanghai, and Annie is a GIA Graduate Gemologist and Pearls Graduate from New York. The elegant and exquisite eastern culture therefore meets and sparkles with the passionate and freely western culture into a variety of jewelry designs. Currently, Vivienne lives in a beautiful water town in Southeastern China with two lovely cats and Annie lives in sunny Florida with her lovely 2-year-old. And the creation continues...

 

The Collaborations

Every season, Vivi & Ann collaborates with indie artists to create interesting one-of-a-kind jewelries. Past artists included illustrators and dessert designers, and many unique designs came out of the collaboration.

If you are an indie artist and are interested in collaborating, please email us at hello@vivi-ann.com.

Vivi & Ann donate part of the jewelry sales to three causes: 

  • Water conservation
