WHY WE STARTED
What started as a casual trip to the Mall, turned into a mission of creating high-quality jewelry and accessories for affordable prices.
Our story began in 2012 when we decided to shop for the holiday season and ended up at a high-end boutique. The decision to enter was to casually browse but we ended up seeing a great piece of jewelry for an awesome deal that was too good to pass up. Of course, the belief was that if this high-end store was selling this piece then it must be good quality. But in one week, the chain lost its color and the pendant started turning green. We felt so disappointed! We were newlyweds and just out of graduate school, so we were strapped for cash but we believed that this piece could have been an heirloom to last for a long time.
With that disappointment came the question of whether there was better in the market for people like us – someone new in their career, with new responsibilities but did not have too much disposable income. Also, with the understanding, they do not want to waste their money on low-quality pieces that tarnish in a couple of weeks. We all can’t afford real 14k gold jewelry but that does mean we can’t wear pieces that look like and feel like it. That’s where Admiral Row comes in. Here’s to changing the industry standard.
HOW WE DO IT
Each of our pieces is designed and handmade using high-quality and enduring materials, from our semi-precious stones (from rose quartz to freshwater pearls) to our chains and components. By sourcing the best manufacturers for our supply chain and keeping our production in-house, we ensure that our affordable jewelry is safe for most sensitive skins, can last through the everyday wear of our customers, and will not tarnish for a long time. Keeping this in mind we have a few tips and tricks to keep your piece looking brand new.
Fair pricing is of the utmost importance to our company. We have kept our production in-house, built great relationships with our supply partners, and cut out middlemen, thereby keeping our prices affordable and avoiding the traditional markup.
