Yael Designs is an award-winning design house widely recognized for bold, opulent fine jewelry.

Founded by designer Yehouda Saketkhou, our collections and custom pieces are inspired by art from around the world - from Turkish carpets to pre-Colombian gold statuettes to Gaudi’s playful architecture in Barcelona.

At the core of what makes Yael Designs jewelry coveted are three main principles that we embrace: bold color, imaginative form and indisputable quality. We handpick gemstones and diamonds of superior cut and color and highlight their natural beauty through intricate handwork and imaginative forms. Whether crafting opulent emerald earrings, an ultra-feminine cocktail ring or a striking colored diamond bracelet, we make sure our pieces make bold fashion statements today and become lasting collectibles tomorrow.


At the very heart of Yael Designs lies our designer’s belief that jewelry should always strive to be art. It is this aspiration that has led our company to win numerous AGTA Spectrum Awards and JCK Jewelers Choice Awards as well as receive wide recognition among top publications such as Town & Country, InStyle, Glamour, Forbes, and Martha Stewart Weddings. Celebrities including Kerry Washington, Sharon Osborne, and Teri Hatcher have worn Yael pieces on the red carpet.


Yet it’s not all glitz and glamour. We understand that besides creating wearable art, as jewelers we bear a special responsibility to preserving the planet, which gives us the remarkable materials we work with. That is why we always use conflict-free diamonds and recycled gold and support social and environmental organizations such as Oceana, Junior League of San Francisco, FACE and Schools for Salone.

Yael Designs is headquartered in downtown San Francisco and our pieces are available in stores throughout the country. Contact us to find out more about our work, trade show appearance or upcoming trunk shows.
