Our Mission

We believe in all the creative, independent, free thinkers out there who are up to stuff. We know that when you feel your finest, amazing things happen. Feeling your finest is a much deeper endeavor than simply the way that you accessorize. That's why we’re committed to supporting people, causes and organizations centered around improving the well being of all of the diverse people living on this planet (and the planet herself).

is the occasion

We design collections for every part of your life. We consider your 9-5, your weekend social calendar and your extra special occasions.

We know that amazing things can happen anytime and we want you to feel your best for all of life’s moments.

It's in the details

Small moves make a big impact. We’re obsessed with the details.

From the tiniest components of our jewelry to every touch point where we meet our customers, it’s all the little things that add up.


We believe that great design should be an everyday experience. We personally work with our manufacturers and through these connections are able to offer the fairest prices.

Don’t worry - we got you…

About the Brand

What started as a hobby for founder Elaine Kim Smith in 2008, is now Lover’s Tempo: a jewelry brand positioned in over 500 retailers worldwide. While collaborating with marketing consultant Leslie Hoolaeff in 2014, the pair bonded over a passion for creativity and entrepreneurial values. Realizing they shared a common vision for the future of Lover’s Tempo, they decided to partner in 2017 to scale the brand to new heights.

Today, a team of women bring individuality and enthusiasm to every detail it takes to continue to build the brand.

Our Unique Design Perspective

With a background in Art History and Fine Arts, Elaine Kim Smith is inspired by great design from various disciplines. Elaine explains that jewelry is a game of millimeters - a beautiful piece is a sum of all of it’s tiny parts. Her design principles are clean lines, a sophisticated color palette, thoughtful textures with just the right amount of delicate detailing.

Beyond the jewelry, all of the brand creative is curated through Elaine’s artful eye. Every detail from our photography to our packaging is designed with the goal of delighting the customer.

While prioritizing a sense of elevated style through our designs and brand experience, we ensures our prices are carefully considered. Elaine strongly believes that great design should be an everyday experience.
