Our Process

It all starts with our aesthetic: timeless understated elegance, based on the beauty of true natural botanical form transmogrified into wearable works of precious art


Designers: David Lee Holland and Yanni Kyriazis work together to create each and every unique, one-of-a-kind jewel we produce.


Inspiration: We start with the time, the place, the season – earth’s most precious offerings –flowers, leaves, bark, branches, seeds, grasses – rare natural beauty we have encountered on our many journeys across the globe.


True Botanical Form: From Oklahoma Wheatgrass to the Japanese Yew Leaf to the Crimson Spider Orchid, we have captured and continue to give form to dramatic representations of botanical treasures which captivate our souls.


One-of-a-kind Jewels: David Lee Holland Fine Jewelry specializes in one-of-a-kind botanically-inspired heirloom quality fine jewelry. Each jewel is handmade and/or handcrafted in solid 18-karat gold (in any of our six signature colors). We also offer 20-karat, 22-karat and platinum creations. Each jewel is fashioned by hand in New York in our downtown Manhattan workshop.


Premiere Color Gemstones: we cut natural color gemstones from rough here in New York, and provide GIA certificates for all important gemstones, and upon request from our clients. We utilize only the finest diamonds and gem-quality natural color South Sea and Tahitian pearls.


“Green" Jewelry: All precious metals used are 100% recycled. David Lee Holland Fine Jewelry has been a leading “green” jeweler for over 15 years, maintaining a non-toxic (biodegradable) fabrication process and utilizing only LED lighting in our showroom and workshop.
