Mardenia started in the spring of 2021 out of my love for vintage jewelry and my need to find timeless jewelry I could wear everyday.
Before Mardenia, I felt there was a sea of trendy jewelry that didn't feel timeless and tarnished if you wore it too much. I had difficulty finding high-quality jewelry at affordable prices, and the high-end jewelry felt like I could only wear it on special occasions. I don't want my everyday jewelry to tarnish, and I don't want to wear jewelry only on special occasions. I simple needed to start my own jewelry brand.
Shortly after Mardenia launched, I got involved in the South Florida vendor market community and have done vendor markets ever since. I love getting to know people through their love of jewelry and how much some of our pieces remind them of "something my mom would wear in the 70s". I love helping people style our jewelry and giving them tips on how to mix our pieces together.
Mardenia Jewelry is inspired by 90s minimalism and the effortless energy of the 70s. We belong with the classics, and we don't chase trends.
We used extensive research to source our materials and found stainless steel to be a durable base metal for our brand.
Our pieces are gold plated on stainless steel using 18k gold with PVD plating technology, known in the industry to last longer than traditional gold plating.
PVD technology provides enhanced protection against water and sweat, which is crucial for preventing staining and tarnishing. We're also nickel-free and lead-free.
