“I could not be more proud of my team and operations,” said Benjamin Javaheri, Uneek’s founder and designer. “For more than twenty years, our band has always been a pioneer, not just in design and craftsmanship, but also in exceeding customer expectations and in going all-out in maintaining high quality standards. We care about our products, and we stand behind each and every piece we make. We are committed in protecting our retail partners and the consumer. We are also transparent with our quality standards and our operations. We open our facility for retail partners to visit, and we share with them how meticulous a journey we take in making our jewelry.”
