The core of every Omi Privé fine jewelry piece lies within the colored gemstone it reveals. The grandeur and the focal point, each gem is resonant of the past. We believe that every individual today has the ability to connect with a stone. In its essence, each gemstone is a living treasure from nature that should speak to the viewer. It is our determination to bring the stones to life through the jewelry in which they are presented.
Gemstones are among the earth’s greatest rarities. The love of stones is in our blood; it is a part of who we are, and showcases where we are destined. We purvey hidden parts of the world to source the jewels that inspire great design. Every Omi Privé piece reveals our connection to nature. Each gem is a rarity and an exclusive insight to millions of year past. An Omi Privé gemstone is natural, valuable, and exceptional.
The Omi Gems family dates back five generations to Burma in the early 1900’s. Decades of wars and close escapes from political unrest followed. With a handful of gems, a brilliant outlook, and a clear mindset, Omi Nagpal and his loving wife, Preeti, came to the United States. There, they founded and built a loose gemstone house that over time became synonymous with the world’s most valuable jewels. Now, the Los Angeles-based company is lead by Omi’s son, Niveet. As head designer, Niveet has continued the family’s reputation and high integrity through the Omi Privé fine jewelry collection.
Niveet carries his family’s deep appreciation for the inherent beauty of each gem. Through multiple manufacturing destinations and years of testing high methods of jewelry fabrication, Niveet has determined the finest craftsmanship in the United States. Though only years old, this collection stems from decades of tradition in loose colored stones. He settles for nothing less than to produce works of jewelry equivalent to the values of the gems they showcase.
Every jewelry piece must reach the ultimate level of quality to bear the Omi Privé namesake; therefore, nothing is compromised along its journey. All settings are fabricated in the United States. Our designs are most often crafted by hand to meet discerning standards. Our French pavé is hand set, rather than cast.
We take pride in uniting traditional manufacturing techniques with the use of modern equipment. Most Omi Privé ring shanks are specifically formed from drawn wire, a method that dates back to Ancient Roman times. This forms a stronger, thicker concentration of metal with minimal to no porosity. All diamonds set in our designs are graded F to G in color and VS or higher in clarity. They are matched by cutting style and make, ensuring superior quality amongst even the smallest of stones.
Our continuous manufacturing efforts are driven to meet and enrich the quality of the jewels encased. The fine settings we produce increase the high values of the gemstones. Our craftsmen know that every piece created is a presentation to frame and enhance one of the world’s purest formations. We take pride in the additional value created through the designs themselves.
Our passion lies within the belief that every gemstone is a gift from nature. The array of colors portrayed from the earth truly reveals the wonder, the rarity, and the foundation from where everything begins. Through our fine jewelry, we strive to connect this rarity to current endeavors and everyday emotions.
The organic purity of colored stones is the foundation that impels us. We relish in the creation of high style that allows these rare stones to tap into the wearer’s spirit and soul. Before any crafting begins, each gem is selectively cut and polished to depict its utmost brilliance. The jewel is carefully studied to envision the design that will showcase its individual splendor, and will enliven that stone. Uniting the nature of the gemstone with the art of design is our specialty.
Immeasurable emotions encompass a life. The warmth, vigor, and energy that accompany the most powerful parts of it are embodied in every Omi Privé piece. Times of change envelope a flow of decisions and sentiments. Our mission is to cherish these emotions, and to complete the puzzle. We unite the earth’s organic color with a true form of art to represent these times of fervor and excitement.
Each jewel is a dream; it is a celebration of life and happiness. Created millions of years ago, the gemstones are presented through current works of art in celebrations of today. The Omi Privé fine jewelry collection is an anthology of ageless heirlooms. Our dreams lie in these everlasting pieces of passion & emotion.
