This is who we are
Lover's Tempo founder Elaine Kim Smith's love story with jewelry started with a booth at a maker's market at her university in Vancouver, Canada. Her Dad helped her set it up, complete with twinkle lights and an immersive experience hosted by Elaine. When you entered her booth, you got lost in her world. Every detail was considered. She hung your jacket and bags so you could feel free to try things on and take a moment to delight in her creations.
Over a decade later, Elaine's ethos of beautiful design, magnetic experiences and a little romance has carried on as the Lover's Tempo team grew to include her visionary business partner, Leslie, and over 500 cherished retailers who carry the brand worldwide.
Today, their tight-knit team of creative women spend their days finding new ways to spark delight from their studio in Vancouver, Canada.
Our unique design perspective
With a background in Art History and Fine Arts, our founder and designer, Elaine, is inspired by thoughtful design from various disciplines—from architecture to painting. Elaine sees jewelry as a game of millimeters.
A beautiful piece is a sum of all of its tiny parts. Her design principles are clean lines, a sophisticated colour palette, thoughtful textures with just the right amount of delicate detailing. Beyond jewelry, all of Lover's Tempo creative is curated through Elaine's artful eye. Every detail—from our photography to our packaging—is designed with the goal of delighting anyone who comes across it.
"When you feel your finest, you have the confidence to pursue anything you want in life. Whether it's the earrings that make you feel ready to shine during a big presentation, or the ring stack that completes your first-date-look—we design jewelry that brings a little romance to your everyday."
