Meet Soraya

Designer and Owner behind the brand

As a graduate from George Washington University in Computer and Information Systems with a minor in Mathematics, Soraya started her professional career in computer software sales and marketing. After a dozen years of long hours and travel away from her wonderful husband and two beautiful children, Soraya decided to leave the corporate world and become a teacher at her children’s school. During this time she started creating jewelry that she would sell to family, friends and at the local craft fairs in Palm Beach, Florida. Realizing she had a knack for designing stylish and beautiful jewelry, at age 50, she decided to pursue her passion and created La Costa Organic Jewelry, as you have come to know it today.

Soraya designs each piece to be functional and timeless. She partners with master fine jewelers with generations of skill and knowledge to create handmade works of art. La Costa pieces are brilliant, lustrous and truly one-of-a-kind, where no two pieces are exactly alike. Each gemstone is natural and hand selected for its beauty and character. Each bright and tiny Swarovski™crystal is hand placed. The precious metals are hand worked and sculpted. The culmination of the many facets of skilled labors of love, results in jewelry that is breath taking and evokes admiration from passersby to renowned jewelers.

A personal note from Soraya

I want to sincerely thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your support over the last ten years. Without your trust and encouragement, none of this would have been possible.

When creating La Costa, I wanted to capture a brand that spoke to women, that was functional yet beautiful. We spend months of thought and design on each La Costa piece, collaborating with my master fine jewelry partners in Europe, who then transform my sketches and designs into reality. Each of our La Costa pieces are handcrafted with much skill and love, where no two pieces are ever truly the same.

My amazing team and I work tirelessly to capture a "Style for Every Moment" so every woman feels confident and beautiful when wearing La Costa. You will be the first to attest that when you wear La Costa you feel the difference, and so does everyone around you.

My wish for you as that you wear La Costa in excellent health, prosperity, joy and that the profound love and care that we have taken in creating your piece resonates in every step you take.Thank you again for all your support. My team and I are so blessed to have you as part of the La Costa Family.


With love and gratitude,
Soraya Thornton
