Born from a profound love of fine jewelry and superb craftsmanship, Kabana is recognized for its artistic inlay techniques, where small, colorful gemstones, such as turquoise, coral, onyx, and mother of pearl, are set into precious metals like gold or sterling silver to create intricate patterns. This unique combination of craftsmanship and artistic expression has made Kabana jewelry highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.
At Lema’s Kokopelli, we take pride in providing a carefully curated selection of Kabana jewelry featuring intricate inlay designs made by the finest artists. Our collection features an impressive array of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, with each piece meticulously crafted to evoke the spirit of the Southwest.
In the world of fine jewelry, some brands rise above the rest for their beauty and the stories they tell. Kabana Jewelry is one such brand, where each piece is a masterpiece that encapsulates the essence of nature and the elegance of artistic expression. From a flower’s delicate petals to a butterfly’s graceful flight, Kabana designs are inspired by the flora and fauna that grace the Southwestern landscapes. This unique approach allows Kabana to infuse every piece with a touch of the natural world, making it more than just jewelry but a wearable work of art.
As you explore the world of Kabana, you’ll discover exceptional craftsmanship and the embodiment of heritage, culture, and artistry. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or looking for something special to love, each piece of Kabana jewelry tells a story, allowing you to carry a part of the Southwest with you wherever you go.

The process of creating a beautiful piece of Kabana jewelry is carefully monitored. That’s because multiple masters of their crafts are working on every single piece. From selecting the stones and completing the hand-polishing to the technical assembly, precise settings, and inlay work, you only have the finest artists on the job.

Every step of the way you’re getting the best of the best. Kabana jewelry never compromises on quality. There’s no doubt that any of the pendants, bracelets, and Kabana rings for sale will remain iconic for decades to come. Our family has been in this industry for three generations, and we continue to be impressed with the work and innovations these artists are making. It’s hard to overlook true craftsmanship!
Kabana was founded in 1975 by Stavros Eleftheriou, an esteemed artist and master of jewelry inlay. Only extremely qualified and experienced artists can deliver the high standards and technical requirements that he established for creating Kabana jewelry.
Above all else, the stones must be precisely sculpted into a perfect-fit for the channel. But the work doesn’t stop there. Kabana jewelry artists must then carefully polish these gemstones into their signature smooth, dome shape. Once the stones are set, they have a certain drama and rise above the precious metal. This distinct look makes it easy for people all over the world to quickly identify Kabana jewelry. There’s an incredibly wide appeal for these pieces, and yet Kabana jewelry continues to be made in New Mexico today. In fact, all Kabana jewelry is 100% made in America. It’s nice to know that the legacy of Stavros Eleftheriou will continue on for generations to come.
The artists are incredibly consistent with their work, and the company can truthfully say that their personnel turnover rate is basically nonexistent. You can feel confident knowing that the item you receive will ultimately be indistinguishable from the photographs you see online. Every artist can train under the masters who have come before them for years and years. This works to develop the craft even further and carry on the Kabana jewelry tradition of excellence.
The solid inlay and effort to showcase the innate beauty of every stone has become the most defining feature of Kabana jewelry. This is represented throughout all of their collections. Their designs are modern and also timeless, so you’ll find pieces that are able to complement any occasion, mood, or style.
Some of the most popular Kabana jewelry comes from their Classics Collection. Yet it’s hard to resist their contemporary styles. For example, when you browse the Kabana jewelry for sale within their Alhambra Collection and Lumière Collection, it’s easy to see that their artists are pushing the boundaries for new and truly unique designs. Both of these collections take inspiration from some of the most stunning architecture from around the world. Naturally, these contemporary pieces have become great conversation-starters.
As a company, the Kabana jewelry brand also insists on being their own “biggest competition.” They constantly challenge themselves to find new interpretations on both natural and man-made beauty. And although they’re firmly committed to training their artists in traditional methods, they also haven’t shied away from using the latest tools and technology. This has been a critical part of bringing the new visions for Kabana jewelry to life.
No matter the style or collection, Kabana jewelry can be easily recognizable as a “statement piece.” Whether you’re looking at Kabana jewelry for sale as a thoughtful gift or browsing our selection for yourself, you’re sure to find something special.

We kindly ask you to allow 3-4 weeks for Kabana jewelry shipments. Because we have Kabana jewelry for sale out of our storefront, some of the pieces that you find on our website may currently be out-of-stock. Consequently, there are occasionally times when we need to place an order directly with the Kabana jewelers on your behalf. And while they will schedule your order ASAP, there’s still a bit of a waiting period. Since their artists are so skilled at their craft, the team itself is relatively small. (But after all, good things come to those who wait!)
If we do have your piece on-site, we ship immediately—just as with anything in our store. Most often, your order will go out as second-day. You’ll also have a tracking number supplied to you on the day of shipping so you can stay up-to-date on your package’s location.
Also, it’s not uncommon for us to personally reach out to customers after they place an order. These follow-ups have proven to be a great way to give you peace of mind and confidence in your new investment. It’s just part of how we operate as a family-owned and family-operated business. We hold the same values today as when Lema’s Kokopelli Gallery was founded three generations ago. Whenever you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
