Los Angeles based Hiji Designs is the creative brainchild of two transplanted New Yorkers. Founders Hilary Rosen, a photographer, and Jill Berman, a nutritionist, first met at a Mommy and Me class, bonding while watching their children take their first steps. As their friendship grew they discovered a mutual passion for design and jewelry fueled by the discoveries they made traveling and shopping.
Initially designing for themselves alone, they began collaborating and soon were creating pieces together for family and friends. In the spring of 2010, Hilary and Jill joined forces to form Hiji Designs. Each new collection has been met with eager anticipation. Their necklaces and bracelets have quickly become a word of mouth sensation found on the necks and wrists of fashionable women fortunate enough to know the designers or to have attended a trunk show.
