My Story



I'm Liza Lalita Lee, G.G. (G.I.A. Graduate Gemologist), founder & designer of Sati Gems Hawaii, a lifestyle jewelry brand. I believe in beauty and purpose, by designing, natural, healing gemstone jewelry, I help everyday women feel beautiful and loved and to be reminded to always be yourself and to never give up with all the challenges that life gives us. To be beautiful means to be yourself. Sati Gems Hawaii’s island-inspired earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are crafted by hand in small batches and one of a kind pieces on the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.


My Inspirations

My collections are influenced by 30 years of living in Hawaii, my tropical surroundings, flowers, ocean and the mountain ranges that I spend my free time hiking, the study of the healing properties of gemstones, and a philosophy that celebrates the interplay between internal and external beauty, a background in gemology, and extensive world travels.



 During my travels, searching far and wide for precious gems, I became enamored with the concept of Sati. The term is best simplified as a state of observant awareness that allows the pure essence of the self to connect harmoniously with one’s external surroundings.


 Today, I continue to live in Kailua, Oahu with my 3 sons, husband, 2 dogs, and 5 rabbits!  I lovingly and consciously fashion every necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings. Each is inspired by my life’s journey. My hope is that you enjoy the spiritual essence in your chosen piece of jewelry. May it bring beauty, awareness, memories, and healing to your mind, body, and soul.
