Unique Handcrafted Jewelry Store In La Jolla


Saigon Spring Jewelry was founded in 2016 introducing jewelry we made from water buffalo horn in the historic city of Vietnam: Saigon. 
Water buffalo horn has been used since ancient times to make many products such as kitchen utensils, combs, decorating subjects...  In the modern day, this unique material and its characteristics have inspired many famous jewelry designers to use it in their designs. Thankfully, people started to notice this kind of jewelry, but it still remained unknown to many fashion lovers, especially to those who love using natural materials and care for the zero-waste lifestyle.  There are plenty of water buffalo horns in Southeast Asia that might have been discarded if the fashion industry had not accepted it as one of the exquisite materials for jewelry. 
The horns are from domestic buffaloes that are purposely raised for agriculture and the food industry.  We are passionate about it and have started our business with water buffalo horn jewelry.  By using this byproduct from the water buffaloes, we also hope to deliver a message that nothing goes to waste.  Our clientele have been women from all over the world, some of them are well-known influencers in many fields.  Slowly but surely, our word-of-mouth business has been able to expand to other materials such as gemstones to give our customers a variety of choices.  To continue our journey of introducing the goodness from nature and the craftsmanship of Vietnamese artisans to the world, in September 2019 we opened this store offering unique handcrafted jewelry and gifts to our community and those who visit La Jolla. And our journey is to be continued...

Jewelry and accessories are game changers in many cases. With creativity and passion, we want to offer a stylish, and sophisticated option to the table, but more than that, we want to emphasize the uniqueness and the meaning behind every piece of our jewelry. 


We work mainly with water buffalo horn and gemstones to make our jewelry.

Water buffalo horn is an eco-friendly, byproduct material. All buffalo horn from Saigon Spring is eco-friendly and ethically sourced from several regions. Horn from the water buffalo is not considered precious, so buffalos are not killed for the purpose of harvesting their horn. To the Vietnamese farmer, the water buffalo’s greatest value is in their ability to assist with farm work. Our horn material comes from animals that died of natural causes or were used for meat. By using horn for jewelry and functional items, we save it from being discarded or burned. Buffalo horn products are not only lightweight, sustainable but because every horn has a unique color and pattern, they are also sophisticated and one-of-a-kind.

Beside of buffalo horn, we're also known for our signature item: Tree Of Life pendant necklace that we wire wrapped with gemstones. Each gemstone represents a meaning, a beautiful reminder of positivity, love and kindness. Copper or sterling silver wire is what we use to wrap a Tree Of Life around it. As you know Tree Of Life is an ancient symbol that encourages us to keep growing, experiencing our life journey and live life to the fullest. We want to deliver a thoughtful message to everyone who receive our Tree Of Life pendant.
