A Warm Community at Liza Shtromberg Jewelry

Liza Shtromberg Jewelry isn’t just a store; it’s a welcoming community.
Founded with a passion for the neighborhood, our store in Los Feliz embodies the essence of a local gem.
A neighbor’s visit became heartwarming, as her love for her dogs led her to explore our jewelry. She discovered a piece that resonated with her and decided to mark her birthday with a custom-made ring.
The result was a treasured self-gift, a testament to the expression of self-love.


Among my many projects spanning years, working on family heirloom stones holds a special place. I’m dedicated to resetting these stones, turning them into something meaningful. It’s a process close to my heart.

Kacey’s jewelry story is a touching one. After her mom’s passing, she inherited precious jewelry and wanted to turn the stones into something she could wear daily to remember her mother. She shared photos of her jewelry and pieces that inspired her, giving me a sense of her style. With those visuals, I created design ideas for her stones.
Through one-on-one chats, Kacey fell in love with a few original designs. Once she made her choice, I carefully matched the stones in terms of size and cut to their new settings. Some stones needed adjustments to bring out their best.

Today, Kacey has a fresh collection of family heirlooms, keeping her mom’s memory alive. The experience felt like a collaboration, where her input mattered. The end result was priceless. By working together in a comfortable and understanding environment, I transformed her mom’s jewelry into pieces she’ll always cherish.

Carlos and Miroslava’s Ocean-Inspired Wedding Ring

The jewelry story of Carlos and Miroslava embarked on a journey from Tijuana, Mexico, searching for a unique wedding engagement ring inspired by the ocean’s beauty. They scoured Yelp for options, lining up visits to different stores in hopes of turning their dream into reality. Our exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail captured their attention and put an end to their search. They valued our commitment to understanding their specific desires.

Their vision was intricate, requiring a ring that encapsulated various ocean elements. The challenge was compounded by the fact that I was working remotely from Israel, creating a time difference hurdle for communication. Undeterred, I embraced the challenge.

Despite the distance, I worked tirelessly to meet their timeline. Crafting a design that incorporated all the oceanic elements they desired, I presented them with a concept that exceeded their expectations. The joy they felt upon seeing the ring was beyond measure. Their satisfaction led them to return a few weeks later, this time for their wedding bands. Their trust in me knew no bounds, despite the distance they had to travel.

Jivana and Ken

In the early stages of my journey, I had the privilege of assisting Jivana and Ken, a couple deeply entwined in their jewelry love story. Jivana’s environmental passion and Ken’s musical pursuits made their bond truly unique. Jivana’s affinity for sustainability and nontraditional aesthetics resonated with my craft.

Crafting an engagement ring for Jivana was a task of balance. Her desire for an opal center stone posed challenges due to its delicate nature. Meanwhile, Ken grappled with the idea of a simple ring that still symbolized his commitment.

Amid these considerations, I aimed to harmonize their aspirations. Proposing an ethically sourced Champagne diamond, we found a compromise that embraced sustainability and captivated their hearts. This fusion of values led to a ring that celebrated their individuality while commemorating their union.
