About

Zahava (Golden, in Hebrew) comes from an exploration of identity and spiritual connection in a modern world. Inspired by ancient wisdom, the collection of 10k Gold Jewelry and Brass Ritual objects is crafted by hand as modern heirlooms, to be passed on from woman to woman. Each piece is designed with the intention of elevating your celebrations -- a coming of age moment, a dinner together, or just a moment in time.

By infusing objects with meaning, we hope to inspire you to adorn in ideas from the past, connection to the present, and the individual dreams that shape your future.

Enamored by design and travel from a young age, designer Jessica Hendricks Yee was born in Paris and grew up outside Manhattan with eyes glued to the cases in her mother’s jewelry shop. While receiving her BFA in Drama at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Jessica became fascinated by indigenous cultures and spirituality, and traveled to South East Asia to teach English. This experience led Jessica to launch her first line - The Brave Collection, jewelry handmade in Cambodia to support local artisans and empower women against human trafficking.

Since founding the collection, she has been named a Forbes 30 Under 30, interviewed by MSNBC, and invited as a guest to the White House. Jessica’s passion lies in using design as a platform to tell powerful stories. Zahava is the second collection born from this desire to connect people to bigger ideas by creating symbolic objects with deep meaning.
