Octavia Elizabeth

Octavia Elizabeth Zamagias, a Los Angeles transplant now living in New York City, is a designer and bench jeweler. Her love of jewelry started with her making process at the bench, where a jeweler solders metal and sets stones. Years after graduating from Pepperdine University, Octavia returned to school to study gold smithing at the London School of Jewelry and later went on to earn graduate bench jeweler’s degree from the prestigious New Approach School.   Using luxurious precious stones and rich 18-karat gold, each piece has a unique combination of both elegance and ruggedness, creating a collection of fine jewelry that can be worn as a daily indulgence.    All of Octavia’s work is crafted from start-to-finish in New York. Fair working conditions, legitimate living wages and eco and ethical production are all paramount to Octavia, who believes these principles should be a part of all fine jewelry collections.
