Los Angeles—Fans of bridal jewelry brand Kirk Kara can now shop it at Jared.
 
Beginning this month, a selection of Kirk Kara engagement rings and wedding bands are available on Jared.com and at select retail locations across the country.
 
Kirk Kara is helmed by CEO Angela Karaguezian Kassabian, daughter of the company’s namesake. The family has been in the jewelry businesses for four generations, since 1890.
 
Today they are known for their romantic, vintage-inspired engagement rings and wedding bands. Kirk Kara jewelry features a lot of hand-carved filigree and milgrain detailing.
 
Nothing from Kirk Kara is mass produced—all pieces are crafted by hand. 
 
The same goes for the brand’s Jared selection, the company said. Jared customers are also able to place custom Kirk Kara orders through their local Jared store. 
 
Karaguezian Kassabian said: “We are excited to partner with Jared and introduce our handcrafted, award-winning rings to their distinctive guests. 
 
“Our intricate designs, exceptional craftsmanship, and ability to customize are unrivaled in the industry and will help make the ring shopping experience even more personal and unique.”

Jared Vice President of Merchandising Ann Grimmett added, “This new venture is an ideal partnership for us to continue to elevate our current bridal offerings and provide customers with handcrafted, well-made wedding and engagement styles. Our investment in Kirk Kara reinforces Jared’s commitment to bringing customers’ unique visions to life through the work of trusted artisans and custom design.”
 
Kirk Kara’s Jared offerings retail for between $1,050 and $5,120 and are available in platinum, 18-karat gold, and 14-karat gold.
 
Engagement ring pricing doesn’t include a diamond or gemstone center stone, with the exception of Kirk Kara’s rose-cut diamond array. 
 
The brand’s stacking bands function as wedding bands or can be worn together as a bridal or right-hand stack. 
 
There are currently 151 Kirk Kara styles on the Jared website.
