What started in 2014 as a single brick-and-mortar design and retail storefront in Costa Mesa, CA has quickly evolved. We have now grown into a team of experienced craftspeople who work tirelessly to create pieces our customers will want to wear for years, as well as expanded to open a second storefront. 
When you say yes! to May Martin and become part of the MM family, we are committed to ensuring that your purchase is backed by outstanding customer service and a lifetime repair policy. 


At May Martin, we believe beautifully-designed, handmade jewelry should be accessible to people everywhere.


With a background in jewelry design inspired by her art studies in Florence and honed at major global brands such as Harley-Davidson, Tommy Bahama and private label design for QVC and HSN, our founder and designer, Lily set out to create a timeless and elegant jewelry line at an accessible price point. By using gold-filled materials and the highest quality natural gemstones, Lily has ensured all of our pieces accomplish her original mission.

Born and raised in Miami, FL, she continues to sprinkle the vice vibes throughout her California shop and studio. Her passion for making each piece exactly as it should be shines through in her company. Your May Martin piece was either made by or quality-checked by Lily.
