Formerly a diamond trader for a leading NYC auction house, Ibero-Venezuelan designer Dre Raq is launching her first fine jewelry collection with Atelier CDLR. Her aesthetic can best be described as organic minimalism and is inspired by her appreciation for the delicate and beautiful simplicity found in nature.

Dre incorporates ethically sourced fine jewelry components and metals such as sterling silver, gold, and gemstones, with organic accents like feathers, skulls, and live plants. An entrepreneur and activist for international women’s rights, Dre uses a portion of the proceeds from sales to encourage innovation in developing countries through micro loans to female entrepreneurs
