As we pass through each stage of life, our most-valued possessions evolve along with us. As I grew, my jewelry collection transitioned from jelly bracelets and plastic rhinestones to Tiffany sterling silver. When I purchased my first set of Akoya pearls I felt one step closer to attaining Audrey Hepburn’s classic poise. (Sadly, I later learned it was fake.)
Now, my select cherished pieces include my wedding ring, my grandmother’s jade ring, and a gold and diamond ring from Muse Refined. It’s one of my friend’s best-selling pieces, from a jewelry line filled with simple, modern silhouettes that will endure through time.
Wanting to learn more about the distinctive jewelry business that Sophie founded, I posed these questions to hear her story about Muse Refined.
1. What inspired you to start Muse Refined and how did you come about the name?
Growing up, my parents owned a jewelry business in Los Angeles. Like many kids with parents running a small business, I had to help out a lot. In high school, I flew with my mom to New York for a jewelry expo. That first visit to NY was an incredibly eye-opening experience; it was first time that I felt excited to be in the fine jewelry space. In college, I traveled to other countries as a buyer and merchandiser. These experiences awakened in me the desire to someday start my own jewelry business. It was just a matter of time.
- Demetri X ring: it’s strong and feminine, not to mention perfectly symmetrical. It’s a nice contemporary design that can be worn comfortably both day and night.
- Diamond Bar Bracelet: This bracelet is timeless and functional; a great way to enhance any outfit.
- Selfie Name Necklace: This delicate custom necklace is so personal. It’s a favorite that you never need to take off, and that can be easily layered.
I love so many of her designs, and the Demetri X ring is a personal favorite of mine! It lends itself well to layering, but it’s dazzling on its own, gently encircling the lower joint of the finger. This is a ring with delicate strength and simplicity that I’ll enjoy wearing throughout life, and hopefully will be able to pass down for someone else to love.
Whether you want to splurge on yourself or you have someone special in mind, Muse Refined has many gorgeous pieces that are sure to be cherished through time.
xoxo and aloha,
I love it!!!! I use to be all about loud anything when it came to fashion, but now I’m all about the effortless things!!! I’m loving how simple yet chic this is 🙂
Effortless fashion it is indeed! What a simple, elegant look this jewelry has. It’s definitely to be treasured. I love that ring!
“quality, value, and effortless fashion” – I so love this. For sure Muse Refined will be a hit not only because of their awesome jewelry but because of their commitment to bring the best out of their customers.
those pieces are gorgeous – I love delicate looking jewelry. I am going to check these out – I wonder if they sell sizes for my daughters.
How pretty! The only jewelry I actually wear is my wedding ring and a birthstone ring I got when my son was born. These are so pretty! I really like the simplicity.
Those look great! I love how simple and subtle they are. I’m pretty sure the wife would love it too. Might have to keep this in mind for a gift.
I love gold bracelets–2 of them never and I mean never leave my wrist! Another one that was my Grandmothers keeps coming open and I am afraid of losing it so I don’t wear it very often. Then I have two charm bracelets–one mine and one my Grandmothers. One of these days I will add those two to my wrist as well!
I used to be all about big bulky jewelry but as I have grown I’ve started to lean toward simple and elegant designs. Right now I just wear my wedding ring and simple stud earrings simply because I’ve been unsure of what exactly is like to be wearing. I think it may be time to step up my game a little bit….
These are fine and beautiful pieces. I like that they are simple, yet they look very classy.
Beautiful pieces. I do have a few big statement necklaces, mostly cheap Ebay or clearance from Kohls, but everyday is the classic and traditional pieces. Still don’t own anything Tiffany though.
I have never believed bigger is better when it comes to jewelry. I Love these small and absolutely beautiful pieces.
i love love love delicate jewelry! well i love all jewelry haha!!

Those are really pretty pieces. I love how delicate they look.
These are beautiful pieces. I have small hands so I prefer delicate pieces like this to chunky ones.
I think that making jewelry has got to be an amazing line of work. I love the X ring, it is so pretty and very unique without being flashy.
so pretty! the perfect combo of classy, simple and delicately sophisticated..
