Aroc Urtu Jewelry is the result of designer Lauren Bergman's vision and passion for things that are natural, beautiful and unusual. Lauren is a life-long lover and collector of stones. Returning from trips with pockets full of extremely unique finds from all over the world, she has amassed an impressive collection of natural treasures. Lauren's love for beautiful found stones, unusual gems, and other unique materials is the wellspring for creating collections of jewelry that tell the story of the stones’ journey through time and nature. Aroc Urtu jewelry is a union of unaltered, natural stones juxtaposed with fine gemstones and precious metals, precisely cut, shaped and polished by master stonecutters and jewelers. There is an equilibrium of simplicity and complexity at the core of the exquisite design in the collections.

Lauren Bergman’s background in jewelry design features a resume of the best names in the world of fine jewelry. After completing her studies at Parsons, The Art Students League and the Fashion Institute of Technology, she began designing for some of the world's largest gemstone dealers. Her creations have been showcased in the windows of Tiffany & Co., DeBeers, Cartier, Harry Winston and Bulgari. Lauren’s history of designing for traditional and more classic companies, combined with her own fresh approach that incorporates a strong knowledge of modern trends and eye for style, strikes a perfect balance, creating pieces that reflect an understated elegance.

Aroc Urtu is committed to environmental responsibility. We use only recycled precious metals that are sourced from a process of refining precious metal bearing materials, and are not supplied from the mining industry. Our gemstones are certified conflict free, and proudly, each and every piece is handmade in NYC from start to finish.We strive to constantly find ways of sourcing better, more environmentally friendly materials and methods so that Aroc Urtu jewelry will not only be beautiful on the wearer, but will help leave behind a more beautiful planet.
