Since launching her original jewelry collection in January 2000, Sofia Kaman and her designs have been on a course of steady growth and organic evolution.
From making wax carvings on her kitchen table, Sofia’s gem-filled dreams evolved into soulful designs, into a prolific body of work, evolved into a wholesale business, a showroom, a retail jewelry boutique and a brand.
2008 marked the opening of Kamofie & Company on the dynamic Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California. Sofia knew from the start that Venice was the best location to center her flagship boutique. Creative, quirky, ever-changing, soulful …all these qualities describe this artistic hub of busy Los Angeles, and so too what she and her jewelry are all about. The store provided Sofia with the ultimate testing ground for launching new designs and new potentials for her growing company.
In 2012 Sofia was chosen to participate in the 10,000 Small Businesses Initiative, a program created and funded by Goldman Sachs and the Goldman Sachs Foundation to provide education, capital and support services in order to help entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunities. This education and support helped to propel Kaman to redefine her brand by recognizing three specialties distinguishing her company: unique wedding and engagement jewelry, her signature fine jewelry collections, and a curated collection of vintage and antique jewelry, Sofia’s original love.
As of May 2014, the company commemorated this milestone by re-branding as Sofia Kaman Fine Jewels.
