WHAT IS ELEUX?
Eleux jewelry captures attention with hand-crafted workmanship and bold, colorful, vibrant gemstones. Specializing in statement earrings, each piece is one-of-a-kind, allowing the customer to find a unique piece of jewelry that speaks to their personality and individuality, creating a feeling of confidence and exclusivity for the wearer.
The owner, Aria Thomas, has had a love for gems, minerals, and the arts for as long as she can remember. Often inspired by the gemstones themselves, Aria’s specialty is combining cabochon cut gemstones with sparkling faceted cut gemstones to highlight rare and unusual colored stones. She views each gemstone as a piece of art, encompassing many different natural patterns and colors.
Designs evolve over many months of careful thought, re-arranging, and sourcing the perfect gemstones. Aria personally supervises every step of the design and production process to ensure that the level of quality and attention to detail is achieved.
Growing up, my childhood consisted of picking up and collecting rocks anywhere I went. I expressed myself through various mediums of art: painting, sculpture, and beading: releasing my first collection of handmade beaded jewelry at the age of ten. By experiencing so many different forms of art at a young age, I learned early on that I loved working with my hands.
Present day, my gem and mineral collection has grown from a humble group of modest stones collected from the neighborhood park, to an extensive array of unique specimens. I completed my education from the Gemological Institute of America as a certified Gemologist, CAD Technician, and Jewelry Designer.
Gemology and jewelry design are not solely professional endeavors, they are expressions of a passion dating back to my earliest memories. Jewelry design allows me to create wearable art that is expressive and can be passed on for generations.
