What Are New York's Most Distinctive Jewelry Brands?

It is not without reason that New York is called The Big Apple. It has the biggest, best and brightest of everything and is a city that drives trends in fashion. When it comes to diamonds, it is a no-brainer that NYC would be one of the best places for jewelry design, given that it is one of the biggest diamond trading locations after Antwerp. But when you are shopping for jewelry in New York, which are the establishments you can walk into and be assured of provenance, quality and the latest designs? We tried to put together a short list for you.

Wendy Nichol

You can go to their studio in New York which also doubles as a store for retail sales. Because they also make leather bags apart from exquisite jewelry, you will get the strong smell of leather when you walk into their store on Sullivan Street. People who like Wendy’s jewelry creations love the way she incorporates offbeat shapes like pyramids into her creations. You can expect other innovations like the black diamond ankhs and the bird flipping rings.

Anna Sheffield

Most people consider this designer as a specialist in jewelry related to weddings, like engagement and wedding rings. You can get them to incorporate an heirloom stone you own into the design that they will create, or you could ask them to create a bespoke jewelry design for you. Even if you are unable to make it to the Oxford Street store, you can work with their designers remotely as well. Watch out for their zany innovations like black diamond bands and emerald cuts.


This jeweler prides itself on its custom handmade jewelry, and customers seem to be lapping those designs up.  The unique feature of Giliarto is that it offers an online platform for clients to design their own jewelry. A client can open up the proprietary portal Cleo, and take his or her pick from the different filters like price, metal, stones, setting style etc. till they are satisfied with the look, and then they can order for it to be made.


Imagine sipping a glass of champagne while you choose your engagement ring. That is the kind of ambience that is sought to be created in the store as you browse through their exquisite collection of wedding jewelry and make your choice. They do not limit themselves to wedding-oriented jewelry only, though, and you can find several designs which tread the fine line between elegance and practicality.


They do have their own flagship store at Williamsburg store, but you will also find them retailing at large shopping chains. You will find high end precious jewelry as well as nifty pieces which are more modestly priced when you shop at Scosha Woolridge. In her designs you will find influences of places where Scosha has picked up her skills, like India, Thailand, Turkey and of course Brazil. She started off by making small trinkets for someone else who had a store and then made the big move to having her own store in New York.
