Ursa Major, a San Francisco-based jewellery brand was founded in 2009 by designer Kate Jones. The inspirations behind Ursa Major's designs have varied throughout the years. Yet, they have been faithful to the reminiscences of Jones's childhood; a sailboat named Ursa Major, a house on a salt marsh and the stillness of the sea between the Carribean and Maine.
Ursa Major jewellery pieces have a contemporary, but timeless appeal and are all made by hand with the finest materials. The reference of nautical chic gives them a vibe of nonchalance, while the minimal details and forms make the jewellery refined, distinct and wearable in everyday life.
