--The Sofia Kaman Fine Jewels Team
 

Sofia Kaman, Founder, Designer, Graduate Gemologist

Sofia discovered her love of jewelry in the 90s and hit the ground running. She opened her flagship Abbot Kinney shop in 2008 and was there for ten years until moving to Santa Monica in 2018. She resides just a hop, a skip and a jump away from the shop with her husband Geoff, teenage daughter Ella, Sally the French bulldog, Daisy the pug, and Goldie the rabbit!

Geoff Kaman, Technical Director

An established programmer, technology connoisseur and team-appointed computer whiz, Sofia’s beloved husband Geoff joined the team full time in 2014 making it a family affair. Geoff not only built the website, but the entire interior of the shop as well! He enjoys quoting Star Wars movies, snowboarding and riding anything with wheels. Geoff is all about the 6mm Faceted Wedding Ring!

Tinelli Krause, Stylist

Tinelli joined the company in 2010 after moving to Venice and has been styling and stacking engagement rings for over eight years! She’s since moved to the valley to settle in a new home, but still loves the canyon and beachy commute to and from work. Lunch is her favorite time of the day and there’s nothing she enjoys more than hanging out with her adorable 2 year old daughter, Bowie. Tinelli is the epitome of rocking tradition and loves a juicy hexagon Rose Cut diamond - all day everyday!

Milena Raycheva, Stylist, Hand Model

Milena was born in the rolling green hills of Pleven, Bulgaria and has been in the United States for 11 years. Since her relocation, she has fallen in love with latin dancing, traveling, but most of all, diamonds! She balances a hectic schedule of grad school classes and walking her amazing Shiba Inu- Charlie. Her style is romantic bohemian elegance, and she adores the simplicity of the Chloe Diamond Solitaire.

Emily Wandland, Stylist

Emily is our vintage jewelry and charms aficionado. She is a former voice major originally from Kettering, Ohio and loves spending her mornings on the beach with her sweet rescue pup Oliver. She appreciates a warm and delicious antique diamond and especially a silver-topped vintage find like the Regal Rose Cut ring.

Kennedy Kullmann, Social Media Director

Originally hailing from Portland, OR, Kennedy is the baby of the bunch and loves anything fashion related. When she’s not filming sparkling engagement rings, you can find her on the kickball field or indulging in a glass of wine. The Glitterati Band is her in the form of a ring.

Liz Clancy, Marketing & E-Commerce Director

Liz adores any and all things vintage and can usually be found on her balcony with her fat cat Henry. Originally from New Orleans, LA, she loves a good themed celebration and is a sucker for an Old Mine Cut diamond like the Spiky Crown Solitaire.
