When not at one of her two businesses, Golriz can be found musing on style for The Huffington Post, scavenging for vintage apparel on her travels, working on philanthropic ventures or blissfully spending time with her husband and their darling dog, Lulu De La Falaise.
She lives, learns and loves in Los Angeles.
As a native Angeleno, Joya is passionate about art and jewelry which led her to co-found Brigitte & Stone. Throughout her life, Joya has had a passion and love of fine art and jewelry design, and was always inspired by fine art and architecture. Growing up, she got her inspiration from attending Jewelry Trade Shows, Gem Fairs and Flea Markets. On her first trip to Paris, she recalls going to the Marché Aux Puces, which sparked her passion and enthusiasm for vintage designer jewelry.
Joya comes from a generation of family Jewelers. After receiving her Fine Arts degree, she attended Gemological Institute of America (GIA), where she received her Graduate Gemologist degree, and her degree in Jewelry Design.
Her passion for jewelry and her GG degree from GIA, landed her a job at Cartier, Beverly Hills. After only a short time, Cartier found such promise in her, that she was selected and sent to the Cartier headquarters in Paris for extensive training. These opportunities have inspired Joya to pursue her love of jewelry and to eventually opening her own boutique, which has been a lifelong passion of hers. Through the years, she has collected an extensive collection of signed vintage fine and costume jewelry to share with the public. She also has collaborated in designing a signature Brigitte & Stone fine modern jewelry collection.
Joya lives in Los Angeles with her three loving & supportive children.
