Mother-daughter jewelers share treasures in trunk showing

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO  - The mother daughter team of Oya Kara and Idil Duran will present a trunk show of their jewelry, which includes pieces like this necklace of black onxy separated by pearls, Aug. 2 at Lucky Me Boutique.

Lake Oswego jewelers Oya Kara and her daughter Idil Duran have launched Via Parigi Personal Jewelers and offer the jewelry they create in their home studio on the website viaparigi.com.

“I was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey and moved to Lake Oswego 31 years ago with my two children,” said Kara. “I worked administration and sales for many years, but jewelry making was always on the side. Our styles are different. Idil goes for the young and hip, I am more on the classical side. So together we appeal to a vast group of clientele.” The women offer original designs in their collections and can also custom design pieces for clients.

“Our diamond and gemstone importers carry only ‘clean’ stones that originate from conflict-free mines where workers are paid a decent wage,” said Kara. “The perfect piece of jewelry can be a lifelong treasure, a gift passed from generation to generation. At Via Parigi Personal Jewelers, it is our pleasure to bring our experience and resources to work for you.”

The jewelers will hold a trunk show Aug. 2 at Lucky Me Boutique, 385 First St., suite 115 in Lake Oswego from 1 to 5 p.m.
