I recently had the pleasure to attend the media viewing for SDJ’s most recent collection and it was a real treat. Each of her pieces are unique one of a kind reworked vintage pieces which each have it’s own story and have been seen on many celebrities. Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Kelly Clarkson, Emily Blunt, Regina Hall and Maya Rudolph.
Here are some of the pieces.

SDJ modern estate and vintage curation™ is Suzanne Donegan’s distinct take on the classic jewelry wardrobe. Meticulously sourced and handcrafted, the collection incorporates finely curated antique elements, such as 19th century intaglios and Etruscan revival chains, coupled with rare natural materials and semi-precious stones. Combining different time periods and styles, where often one era blends seamlessly into another, SDJ designs are at once unique and interesting, subtle and chic, soulful and new.
Melding California cool with the European traditions of classicism and craftsmanship, SDJ modern estate and vintage curation™ has developed a loyal following enamored by the brand’s timeless heirlooms reimagined for a modern, cultivated aesthetic.
