Elevated designs crafted with intention. Founded in 2015 by Baylee Ann Zwart, Azlee merges ancient practices of jewelry design, Art Deco architecture and the romance of the natural world into a singular vision of modern luxury. Drawing from historical romanticism and inspired by ancient civilizations, Azlee reinterprets timeless references into a line of contemporary fine jewelry designed for the every day, made to last for generations. Balancing the tension between distinct elements in both materials and form, masculine lines and feminine shapes, each piece is a modern work of art echoing the past, infused with nostalgia.
Azlee incorporates carefully sourced materials and innovative practices to reduce its environmental impact, redefining luxury to include a kinder, more thoughtful approach towards nature and a focus on timeless quality. Each piece is crafted in recycled 18k gold in Los Angeles. Since AZLEE’s inception, a portion of each sale has been donated to an ocean-related cause. AZLEE has made donations to The Marine Mammal Center, Surfrider Foundation, Heal the Bay, Oceana, and Sea Legacy, and has sponsored beach clean ups in partnership with Surfrider Foundation Los Angeles, as well as sponsored One Water Day with Heal the Bay.
The same intentionality runs through all aspects of the brand, including the intimate experience of creating custom, bespoke pieces. Zwart guides each client through a thoughtful and collaborative design process, where personal preferences and histories are transformed into one-of-kind, lasting pieces.
Elevated, versatile and modern, ĀZLEE has been worn by Emma Watson, Rihanna, Bella & Gigi Hadid, Zoë Kravitz, Scarlett Johansson and has been featured in Vogue, Vogue Paris, W, Elle, Bazaar and international publications around the world.
