Ali Peret grew up in New York City where he studied art and social sciences at The New School for Social Research in Manhattan.
In 1974 he moved to Southern California where explorations with painting, wood/stone carving, and silk screening led to his fascination with jewelry.
Ali discovered the Oregon Coast in 1976 whilst visiting friends. After two weeks he decided to abandon California for Lincoln Beach where a small sponsorship paved the way for Ali to study jewelry design and fabrication at Thundering Seas in Depoe Bay. Through this opportunity, Ali discovered his life long passion.
Ali established his jewelry business in Troutdale, Oregon 1990 and currently shares space with two other galleries.
Ali’s success reflects the importance of designing jewelry that is tailored to the client’s lifestyle. He loves to collaborate with clients in restyling old family treasures and will also incorporate gems they have brought back from world travels.
