At the age of 20, after working as a freelance designer, Alyssa Nguyen decided to create a brand of her own. Being raised by a father who is not only a goldsmith, but inventor of the Master Sizing Vise, a jeweler's bench tool sold through major retailers such as, Rio Grande and Stuller, Inc., growing up, she spent a lot of time around jewelry. For as long as she can remember, all she's ever wanted to do with her life is create, so it only seems natural that jewelry design would be an art she'd pursue. Although Alyssa is the sole designer for the brand, some of her earliest memories consist of sitting in her father's studio, carving waxes and sketching pictures of rings with her sister, Sav(anna)h, thus deciding to name it, Alyssa & Anna. With a strong belief in traditional craftsmanship, using ethically sourced materials, and that every woman deserves the love and the magic that comes from handcrafted jewelry, Alyssa & Anna began - thoughtful and responsible fine jewelry, that is as unique and extraordinary as you are.
