In Conversation with Carbon & Hyde

"Sister Act"

After the designer sisters Oren & Yarden Katz began their professional journeys as part of the family’s jewelry business, they decided to join forces to debut their own line of everyday fine jewelry. Thus Carbon & Hyde was born. Inspired by their own taste and vision, the brand represents their generation’s chapter of their family’s legacy. The elevated staples include go-to’s like diamond huggies and chains as well as a range of customizable pieces to personalize with initials and words meaningful to the wearer.

Tell us about yourselves, where you are and what you’re up to these days?

We are Los Angeles based sisters and third generation jewelers. We grew up in a family where our grandfather was a diamond dealer, and our father was a jewelry manufacturer. We joined the business in 2013 and created our own line of fashion fine jewelry, producing everything in our in house shop in Downtown. Currently, Oren is on maternity leave and just gave birth to a baby girl. Yarden is preparing for her wedding this August in Malibu.

How did you both decide to join the family business?

I think we always wanted to one day join the family business as we have always loved jewelry, but it was all about timing. After working in fashion in New York for a couple of years, I think it gave us the confidence to start our own line. We launched Carbon & Hyde in 2013, and Broken English was one of our first stores!

Do you have different tastes in jewelry or are you pretty aligned?

Mostly we are aligned and we love to design together, but we both bring different things to the table. Yarden is more edgy in her taste and loves to stack, Oren is more classic and modern.

What are some of your favorite pieces from your line carried at Broken English?

Oren: As a mom I really love all the monogram pieces right now! The Longtag Necklace is an everyday staple (I wear it with my name on it) and the Custom Initial Locket is the perfect heirloom to put your baby’s initials on (and you can keep two photos inside)!

Yarden: I love the Arabesque Ring because the technique on the ring is so special. It swirls up your finger so comfortably and makes your fingers look so long and beautiful. I’ve also been stacking a bunch of earrings on my ears – I am loving the Sparkler Huggies and Sparkler Pin Earrings stacked.

What do you see for the future of Carbon & Hyde?

Continued evolution for the brand aesthetic and focus on sustainability, and happiness in doing what we love to do.
