As an international model in New York, London and Paris modeling for fine jewelry brands, Vania Leles developed an eye for the extraordinary and unique. Her passion for precious metals and stones took her to the world-renowned Gemological Institute of America where she honed her skills alongside industry leaders. Following graduation, Vania held positions at leading institutions including Graff Diamonds, De Beers, and Sotheby’s. In 2011, Vania launched Vanleles Diamonds, a brand that combined her passion for exquisite jewelry with her heart for ethical practices and sustainable sources. Vania remains personally involved with sourcing the precious stones used in her pieces. Vanleles creations are ultra-feminine with an artistic sensibility achieved through remarkable craftsmanship.
