Story Behind The Jewelry Designer
Born in Texas, Presley Oldham didn’t have your typical childhood, given that he grew up surrounded by some of your favorite fashionistas and icons in the industry. From sharing spaces with Ru Paul, Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford, and more he was getting introduced early to the game because of his uncle Todd Oldham, a well-known fashion designer.
In his free time when he finished school, he would join his mother who worked at Neiman Marcus where he grew to devote luxury brands such as Alexander McQueen and Prada. Such scenery inspired him to want to launch his own journey, so he moved to New York City and began studying at NYU. After his experience here he then pursued Los Angeles to explore the world of acting.
With the pandemic taking a toll on our way of life, Presley knew he needed a different route to fulfill his destiny so he created his jewelry line.
Over the years, he has always collected pearls as he traveled, at flea markets, and even from people he knew. With time he grew to love them even more and embrace their magical aura. What better way to create a form of escapism than with grace.
Presley Oldham is a legend in the making, and with his roots and appreciation for nature, there is nothing that stands in the way of the timeless artist.
