Calinana was founded by Ainat Altarac with the intention of producing California chic jewelry that was accessible to women around the world. Ainat uses nature’s most basic elements and transforms them into stylish pieces, allowing every woman to freely express herself. Calinana is based in Irvine, CA, with all pieces 100% hand-crafted/hand-made in the US. Pieces use semi-precious stones, beads, metals, Swarovski crystals and pearls. Metals are sterling silver and 18k gold-plated over sterling silver.
