When they first met in 2008, Noa Sade and Vanessa Lee felt an instant connection. From their positive outlook on life, strong core values, love of travel, and of course, passion for jewelry and accessories, the two bonded over their commonalities and quickly became the best of friends.
Noa, originally from Israel, comes from a family of artists. Self-taught, Noa thrives on the creativity of design. Vanessa, China born but raised in NYC, is a former fashion buyer with deep roots in the industry. Together, the two make the perfect team.
In September of 2009, Lionette was born with the vision of creating a brand and a collection that was both glamorous and unique, that would stand out in the industry and be the perfect accessory for any occasion, day or night. The dream was to work together as best friends and business partners, doing what they each loved most.
