Welcome to Jewels by Mala

We take pleasure in presenting our collection of fine jewels hand made with love and affection.

Our jewels use the finest gold, silver, pearls, precious and semi-precious gems we can find. You truly will enjoy wearing them to special events, work, or just around the house.

We also offer customized jewelry for all occasions. For example, check out our rings collection to see what we have done for our customers. The rings on this page are not for sale.

Most of our creations are one of a kind and offer a unique and compelling display of beauty.

These pictures were taken by Mary, one of our loyal customers. They represent the work that we do and should be considered as samples. Jewels for sale follow if you scroll down. Use the menu to view jewels in private collections. We hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed making them.

Precious Gems

Precious gem stones include diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. You have already seen examples of these in other posts. So here are a few more.

Semi-precious Gems

Many of my unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry creations are made with semi-precious gemstones such as amethyst, aquamarine, blue topaz, citrine prasiolite (green amethyst – the icon for this post), peridot, tanzanite, and tourmaline. To see many examples of each of these semi-precious gemstones in designer jewels, please visit our main web site at Jewels by Mala.

About Jewels by Mala
Jewels by Mala is the creation of Mala Freedman. The company was originally established in 1979. I had just returned from India and began importing antique silk embroideries.

In 2000, I added stretchy fresh water pearl bracelets to my collection. Within a few months, customers commissioned me to expand my line to include one-of-a-kind creations. The rest is history.

I was educated at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. I became a buyer for Best and Company. The opportunity to travel around the world presented itself, and I traveled extensively, absorbing the beauty and culture around me. I have translated this love to the jewelry and gifts that I offer you.

My jewelry has been compared with Gurhan, Laura Gibson and other designers at Neiman Marcus and Saks. My collection includes creations in pearls, gemstones, 18-22 k gold and Sterling silver.

Most of the jewelry that I design is inspired by artists and creators from around the world. Many of the necklaces and bracelets are hand-knotted. My jewelry looks fantasitc for formal or casual wear, whether for yourself or as gifts.

I will be happy to give you a FREE quote on making you some beautiful jewelry to your design and specifications. Click here for details.

In recent years, I have been excited about helping newly weds design their own wedding rings and having them made by my goldsmiths. This has given me and them much pleasure and has produced many beautiful creations. Click on this link to see some of the designs.

I hope that you gain as much pleasure from them as I have in creating them.
