Satya Jewelry

Yoga-Inspired Jewelry for Your Spiritual Journey

Satya JewelrySatya Jewelry offers handmade gold vermeil and silver necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets that are “yoga-inspired” by combining healing gemstones, spiritual symbols, and sacred meanings.  Choose from spiritual symbols like a miniature Buddha, cross, the OM, and Star of David to various semi-precious gemstones chosen for their healing and energetic properties.  Satya Scainetti and Beth Torstrick Ward are the co-founders and designers of Satya Jewelry.  Prior to launching Satya Jewelry, these ladies both possessed vast experience in the jewelry industry and worked closely together at another company.  It was after the historic and unforgettable 9/11, that Satya and Beth decided to follow their hearts in making a change.  Satya ventured to the Bahamas for yoga teacher training, where she received the spiritual name “Satya,” while Beth traveled to Thailand for six weeks to gain new insight.  After they each returned from their profound and eternally changing journey, they were equipped with a united vision to leave their jobs and launch a jewelry company together.  Each piece is created with grace and style with the intention of guiding the wearer to their own personal path of inner peace and spiritual awakening.

Satya JewelryA feminine ring evoking fauna and flora is the Heart of Lotus Ring. Also featured in Lucky magazine, this ring showcases a gorgeous heart of lotus flower opening to reveal its cluster of petal blossoms.  The lotus represents infinite potential in opening ourselves to new life daily and serves as a reminder to honor our sacred core.  This ring is entirely hand crafted and each layer of different petals is hand-formed to create a unique and one-of-a-kind flower each time.  Satya JewelryShown in sterling silver and available in gold vermeil.  Satya Jewelry offers a wide selection of both fun and meaningful earrings in silver and gold vermeil.  Our favorite is the Pink Quartz Double Teardrop Hoop because it combines Satya Jewelry’s signature abstract hoop earrings with a contrasting pair of rose and cherry quartz stones.  The barely there pink of the rose quartz softens and offsets the coral tone of the cherry quartz, providing a feminine and flirty feel.

“Satya” is the Sanskrit word for “truth” and is often associated with “the path to ultimate truth.”  Satya Jewelry is unique from other jewelry designers because in addition to being the “trend right,” they are also the “heart right” as the designers both value what every piece of jewelry means and represents.  Satya and Beth put heart into how each piece is made and how it can ultimately help the wearer on their own individual spiritual path.  Besides being just a lovely accessory, the piece holds some spirituality in guiding each person from within.  “Our jewelry is something spiritual and special you can wear everyday.  Most importantly, it’s personal…our wish is that when you put it on, you are reminded of your own potential and your beautiful intentions,” says Beth.  The two designers love working with the best quality materials they can find and especially with new and gorgeous gemstone cuts and colors.  They love the rich color of the 24KT matte gold plating because it feels like alchemy every time a pure silver pieces is sent out to be dipped in gold.  Since they design all their own components, “it’s like Christmas every time a box of new development arrives.” 

Many of their pieces are affordably under $100 with earrings under $50.  Also, Satya Jewelrytheir necklaces are great for layering with their pieces or your own pieces.  One of our favorites is the Red Garnet OM Necklace, which was also featured in Oprah Magazine.  This weighty necklace is made of deep red garnet faceted stones interwoven and hand-knotted all along pure silk with 24Kt gold vermeil hammered beads, and a gold disc displaying an Om symbol in the center.  The red garnet sparkles as it catches Satya Jewelrythe light and reflects beautifully against the gold vermeil disc. This strong andsolid necklace is stunning with any wardrobe, from a casual tee to a black cocktail dress.  Red Garnet Lariat Necklace features two delicate teardrops of garnet playfully dangling on a 24k gold vermeil lariat necklace adorned with smaller faceted garnet gemstones.  Gold is known for amplifying, stimulating, and uplifting the energy in the body.  Red garnet is used to keep one grounded and filled of inner strength.  This feminine piece was featured in Marie Claire and is lovely with a v-neck dress or top as it rests along the collarbone. 

Satya and Beth have both been creative and entrepreneurial all throughout their lives and surprisingly, even though they did not know each other at the time, they both made and sold jewelry in their early twenties to finance their love of travel.  Beth holds a Fine Arts degree from the University of Louisville while Satya has a Masters in Social Work and Early Childhood Development from Adelphi University.  They continue to give back to others through The Satya Foundation, a non-profit foundation that provides need-based scholarships for yoga and healthy living to children.  Satya Jewelry is a favorite among celebrities for their spiritual simplicity.  Starlets like Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Scarlett Johansen, Christy Turlington-Burns, Molly Sims, Courtney Cox, Rachel Bilson, Susan Sarandon, and yoga guru- Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa adore Satya Jewelry. 

Satya JewelryIf you are a silver kind of gal, Satya has just as many pieces to offer as they do gold.  The Peridot Mini Trio Necklace features a lotus flower etched on a silver disc, a cross, and a faceted peridot stone. Peridot is the stone of all relationships and the pursuits of love while the cross inspires devotion and faith, and the lotus new beginnings and infinite potential. The soft pear green of the Peridot exudes a cool and calming aura against the Satya Jewelrybrilliant white sterling silver of the charms and chain.  The Sterling Sun and Moon Necklace is artsy for its double strand pendant necklace featuring a sun and moon disc on each strand.  The sterling silver disc featuring the sun hangs from a delicate silver chain while the disc with the moon hangs from a ball chain necklace.  The contrast of the varying texture and style of the chains adds a touch of spunk.  Now, you can wear these cosmic forces of the universe around your neck to always remember that the sun brings warmth and groundling while the moon is cool and nurturing. 

For designs, Beth says, “Many ideas are born on our trips to Asia when our minds are open and free to just take the world in.  We are always looking for new and exciting ways to subtlety incorporate scared symbols…we can be inspired from architecture, a museum artifact, a found object, or text.”  The designers especially love the pieces they design with the hill tribe families in northern Thailand as the “combination of handcrafted elegance, modern design, organic feeling and sacred symbols seems to draw from the best in every culture.”  India was the most influential country for design because of its colorful spirit and spiritual depth and Thailand for its Buddhist culture.  They also greatly enjoyed Istanbul as it was a great experience.  Another source of ideas come from Satya, who often has brilliant ideas that flow from her meditations.  The design process involves working with their very talented master sample maker to come up with new and creative designs, and then listening to input from all of their staff.  Each piece involves team contribution as Satya and Beth values each and every person they get to work with. 

Satya JewelryThe Many Become One Necklace is made with multiple delicate individual sterling silver chains bound together and a striking blue topaz faceted stone hanging from the center.  Topaz is meant to enhance communicative powers and strengthen the wearer’s connection of body, mind, and spirit. The topaz stone is carefully selected from a crop of gem beauties and exudes a clear, crisp, turquoise blue.  What makes this necklace unique are the multiple individual chains as opposed to a single chain because it adds depth and aesthetic creativity to this simple piece. Satya Jewelry introduces new and larger collections three times a year and small groups of select birthstone pieces monthly.  Of course, they continue to keep their core styles in the collection that speak to people and sell well.  When asked who their favorite jewelry designer was, instead of naming a popular or modern design, their reply was, “We love old Indian jewelry.  Every piece feels historic and unique.”  Satya and Beth possess a true appreciation for jewelry that embodies spirituality and creativity.

Their business journey has also been a personal one for their balance of setting an intention, creatively visualizing, working hard and equally important, not being attached to any outcome.  Satya always says, “I’m just a channel; I’m not in charge”.  They have been forever grateful to be part of a bigger message and movement to be more of their authentic selves.  Satya Jewelry has been extremely successful as they currently have five boutiques in New York City:  West Village (330 Bleecker Street), Upper West Side (2265 Broadway), Upper East Side (946 Lexington Avenue), NoLita (253 Centre Street) and the newest location in Columbus Circle (10 Columbus Circle).  Satya Jewelry can also be found in high end boutiques and museums.  Looking ahead, Satya and Beth hope they can continue touching people with their pieces by opening more boutiques, expanding their e-commerce, wholesale accounts, and anything that is fortunate to come their way.  Satya and Beth wisely share, “Follow your heart, find your Satya, enjoy every moment.”
