Karina Brez And Her Journey Through Jewelry Innovation and Equestrian Passion

Karina Brez, a name synonymous with elegance, craftsmanship, and equestrian flair, has carved a niche for herself in the world of fine jewelry. Born into a lineage of jewelers, Karina's journey into the realm of jewelry design began at a remarkably young age. "I started the company when I was 21 doing jewelry appraisals," she reminisces, highlighting her deep-rooted connection to the artistry of jewelry making as a third-generation jeweler.



Armed with a gemology degree and a wealth of experience gained from appraising diamonds for prestigious jewelry stores, Karina's passion for innovation eventually led her to explore new horizons. "After a few years, I got bored and wanted something new," she admits. It was her lifelong love affair with horses that paved the way for her groundbreaking venture into equestrian-themed jewelry.


The genesis of Karina's equestrian-inspired creations can be traced back to a serendipitous encounter at a charity event. "Many years ago, my friends started a charity, and I came to the event and saw the shops and vendors that were selling," she recalls. Inspired by the vibrancy of the event and fueled by her passion for horses, Karina embarked on a journey to create jewelry that mirrored the spirit of the majestic equine world.


From humble beginnings, Karina's venture blossomed into a formidable enterprise. "I always put my profit back into the company and grew over time," she explains. Initially starting with a handful of pieces, Karina's dedication and entrepreneurial spirit saw her expand her repertoire, eventually leading to the opening of her own store. "When I opened my first store, I only had a few pieces and then would consign with other companies to make the store look full," she reveals, shedding light on her journey of perseverance and growth.


For Karina, jewelry design is a deeply personal endeavor, a sentiment echoed in her meticulously crafted collections. "Any designer feels the same way, it's very personal," she affirms. Drawing inspiration from her profound love for horses, each of Karina's collections pays homage to the grace, beauty, and spirit of these magnificent creatures. "I have 8 collections, and all the collections are inspired by horses," she proudly declares.

Recently, Karina unveiled three captivating additions to her esteemed Cowgirl LUV collection—Faith, Chance, and Destiny pendants. Embracing the essence of modern cowgirl style, these pendants symbolize resilience and empowerment, echoing the ethos of the Cowgirl aesthetic. "I have been working on this collection for a few years," she reveals, shedding light on the creative process behind these exquisite creations.



Inspired by the vibrant energy of the rodeo finals in Las Vegas and her passion for country music, Karina's Cowgirl LUV collection captures the essence of Western-style clothing with a contemporary twist. "The style is coming into trend with Pharrell Williams and Beyonce's new entry into country music," she notes, highlighting the timeless allure of Western-inspired fashion.


Central to the allure of the Faith, Chance, and Destiny pendants are the striking gemstone combinations of quartz or rainbow moonstone crystals with turquoise accents. "I am very well known in my market and niche," Karina explains, emphasizing her meticulous attention to detail in selecting gemstones that embody the essence of Faith, Chance, and Destiny.

As Karina Brez continues to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity in the world of fine jewelry, her unwavering dedication to her craft and her profound love for horses remain at the heart of her timeless creations. With each piece, she weaves a tale of elegance, resilience, and empowerment, inviting wearers to embrace the transformative power of belief, serendipitous opportunities, and the fulfillment of true purpose. In Karina's world, every jewel is a masterpiece—a testament to the enduring legacy of a visionary jeweler whose passion knows no bounds.
