Just like the elements we find in nature, every woman is distinctly and naturally beautiful – each adding to the beauty of the world. With that, each element of a jewelry piece contributes to its overall allure. That is the inspiration behind San Diego based jewelry company Amorcito.
Amorcito’s minimalistic and sweet styles are designed for creative, artistic and fashionable women. Amorcito means “sweetheart” in Spanish and translates to “little love.” Vanessa Murnane, creator and designer, describes each jewelry piece as a “little love” to be cherished and worn with confidence.
Many of the designs are inspired by California – from its beautiful coastline to its majestic mountain ranges. Although each piece is uniquely fashioned, every design has a delicate and dainty refinement expressing a sense of wonder and femininity. Created with fine stones and precious metals that are responsibly sourced or hand-picked from exotic markets and antique shops around the world, each item is truly special and like no other.
Amorcito is dedicated to assisting victims of domestic abuse, with a portion of sales benefiting No Silence No Violence. Every piece in the Azuma collection is inspired by “A Flower for a Flower” to protect the vulnerable and encourage the opportunity to bloom once again.
As the sole designer, Vanessa has such a passion for this art. It is a true labor of love. Her Amorcito.

About The Artist And Her Design:
The majority of Vanessa’s designs begin with inspiration from the great state of California – from its beautiful coastline, to the sprawling deserts, majestic mountain ranges, ancient redwood forests, and grand rivers and waterfalls. No two places, trees, rocks, rivers or waterfalls are ever the same and they all contribute to the beauty of our planet. With that idea in mind, Vanessa recognizes that no stone, metal or even silk strand is exactly the same and every individualized piece contributes to the beauty of a woman. Every woman is distinctly and naturally beautiful, so Vanessa aims to design and make jewelry that adorns and honors her exclusive grace — and perhaps her wanderlust spirit, vulnerable heart, gypsy soul, creative mind, strong will, and/or her ever-resilient and sacred body.
Stones and materials used are always responsibly sourced and whenever possible, derived from local suppliers. This is done with a genuine effort to support fellow artists and workers. The Amorcito jewelry line utilizes completely natural gemstones and metals. Examples include: Lapiz, Chalcedony, Crystal Quartz, Druzy varieties, Moonstone and Sterling Silver + Gold Fill.
Every so often, Vanessa produces a tribute line to pay homage to the beautiful places throughout the world. Every part of the planet has stones and materials indigenous to their landscape and culture. Brazil, Peru, Spain, Argentina, France, Italy, Mexico and Turkey are just a few countries who have provided inspiration and produced beautiful natural stones used by Amorcito.
When donning your Amorcito jewelry, you will be inspired with confidence in your own beauty and congruity with nature. Perhaps you might even be inspired to see the beauty in other people, places and cultures.
