EVERYDAY IS THE OCCASION
Whether you're getting dressed for your 9-5, a Saturday night out or the special event of the year—we want you to feel your finest.
That's why we offer beautiful, delightful jewelry at accessible prices, so every day, and every occasion, can feel a little romantic
Beyond beautiful design, our goal is to spark delight in everyone we meet along our journey—from our talented makers, to the boutiques who carry our line, to you, our customers, who give each piece a life and personality of its own.
We do that by treating everyone we meet with kindness, nurturing relationships for the long haul, and adding special details to every piece.
FEMALE FOUNDED. FEMALE RUN.
There's a lot of soul behind our brand, and that's because at the heart of Lover's Tempo is a team devoted to uplifting women. It's simple, really: we only shine when everyone around us shines too.
That's why, first and foremost, we create a healthy and fulfilling workplace and choose partners that offer the same to their teams. Everything we make comes from happy, fulfilled people who know their work matters.
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."
Elaine Kim Smith / Founder, CEO
My daily ritual: I start out each morning with a snuggle from my 2yr old, followed by 20 minutes of me trying to wrestle her into a change of clothes to start the day. I make a green smoothie every morning and share it with my best bud. I'm a creature of habit and could eat the same thing every. single. day.
Leslie Hoolaeff / Co-founder, COO
My daily ritual: Every evening at dinner my family takes turns sharing something that we feel grateful for that day - it's a great way to reconnect with each other and has a notable positive impact on our mental health.
Vanessa Baptiste / Customer Service Manager
My daily ritual: AM water, coffee and daily goal setting. PM Dinner by 7PM, chores and relax, workout at 9PM, in bed by 11PM
Jessica Stewart / Marketing Coordinator
My daily ritual: I try to do at least one act of self care everyday. Sometimes it’s treating myself to a yummy iced oat milk latte, or spending time in nature, or sometimes it’s throwing on a soothing sheet mask at the end of a long day. YOLO!
Megan Majewski / Design Assistant
My daily ritual: I have a daily ritual of strong coffee, at least one dessert, doing something creative, and making sure my cute little cat Squirrel receives a minimum of 100 kisses.
Karen Burke / Fulfillment Coordinator
My daily ritual: I'm not a good singer by any means but I can't go a day without belting out a tune. I also like to spend a little time outside keeping an eye and an ear out for any birds flying around or sitting in the trees by my apartment.
