Frank Adams Jewelers



Eddie Sakamoto, a third generation Japanese-American, was born in 1953 in Seattle, Washington. Sakamoto was trained in graphic design and had a great interest in architecture and industrial design. However, after a five year employment with a prominent jewelry designer, he began to see jewelry as an alternate means of design expression. Aspiring to present his ideas to a larger audience, Sakamoto moved to Los Angeles in 1979 to create his own jewelry design company, Concept 1 - Sakamoto.


Sakamoto describes himself as a minimalist. The challenge for Sakamoto is to create jewelry where less is more; thereby showing discipline to avoid ideas that are mostly decorative or ornamental in nature. As in many Japanese art forms, negative space plays a leading role in defining his designs. Platinum and 18kt yellow gold take on strong sensual shapes that curve, bend and arc gracefully. Feminine and masculine forms balance as a representation of yin and yang.





Frank Adams Jewelers is a third generation family-owned business, and our philosophy is a simple one.  We will continue to build a legacy of integrity, trust, and pride by bringing world class service and selection to the communities we serve. MORE
