Today we’d like to introduce you to Catherine Levy.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Catherine. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Catlevy Diamond is a company that took a life of its own just by catering to the needs and wants of my (Catherine Levy) friends. It all started by making a few bespoke jewelries using diamonds from my husband’s Diamond Wholesale Company in Los Angeles.
Demand has gradually grown and before I knew it, orders started flowing in, from friends or friends and Acquaintances that were referred to me. With a lot of hard work, blessings, and opportunities, it grew from making a few pieces here and there into to a full-time job just to be able to fulfill all the needs of my clients.
In 2017, we integrated both companies, the wholesale business of my husband and my retail venture so we can concentrate on mutual growth. This turned into an Integrated company with clients all over the world who asks me to design and create their own pieces.
In addition, we have created an affordable line of jewelry that caters to anyone who simply wants something for the everyday use, which is beautiful and unique. When you come to CatLevy office, you get an experience unlike anywhere else, we sit with you personally and go through your design options, select your gems and involve you in every step along the way until it is time for you to pick up your piece.
We work with any budget to accommodate anyone who wants something special. From Lavish Engagement rings to beautiful small pendants, we will do it all and give you the attention you deserve. Most of our jewelry are handmade in the Los Angeles area, therefore, supporting our local jewelers and our community
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Like with any business, we had our ups and downs, a learning curve and mistakes we made. But at the end of the day, when you have two partners who constantly push and support each other to achieve more and to accomplish their life goals, no obstacle is big enough to overcome.
Every failure has been a learning experience, and we are willing to keep on failing and learn in order to push forward and do great things for our family and community.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are as you already know, a jewelry company in downtown Los Angeles.
Although there are a lot of companies out there like us, we are proud of the intricate workmanship that goes through every piece of our jewelry and we are also proud of the fact that we give a service up to par with any luxury store to all our clients whether they are buying a $350 item from our website to a $500 custom made wedding band, to a $300,000 one of a kind bespoke piece. We also host a champagne and diamond brunch for our clients who want to come in as a group. We close our office for them and they come and try on jewelry and just have fun.
Our clients are not just a database of people purchasing from us. We know each of them by name, we know what they like, and who they really are on a personal level. As we welcome each of them to the Catlevy Diamond family because that’s really what sets us apart. All our clients are like family to us.
Another thing that makes us unique is that each and every piece of jewelry that comes from us supports local artisans and small business owners in our local community. We pride our selves in the fact that Catlevy Diamond Jewelry is made in LA.
What were you like growing up?
I grew up surrounded by powerful, strong-willed, business women. My mom, my aunts, my grandma… all of them had their own successful and thriving business. Although I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, I knew without a doubt that having a business on my own was something I could always fall back on. I was a typical teenager in some ways, I loved to go out, have fun, NOT study (lol).
I was not your typical teenager when it came to helping my mom or grandma in their respective business. I learned to work very hard and see the value in this from early on in life. Helping out in my mom’s factory and my grandma’s restaurant from a young age, taught me priceless lessons of love to other humans, appreciating hardships and struggles and the joy of a reward when things were done right.
