Casual: Using bronze, leather cording, and sterling silver, Winifred Gundeck designs everyday pieces with a twist: Her best-selling constellation cuffs ($115) feature indented patterns of the 12 astrological signs. Her new collection is influenced by antique tribal textiles and geometric shapes.
Edgy: With a torch and a hammer, Tonia Kim forges darkly beautiful organic shapes and artifacts out of 10-karat gold and oxidized sterling silver. There’s something whimsical about her work—androgynous bones and spears are balanced by delicate braided chains and clusters of gemstones.
Fine: Brazilian-born Graziela Kaufman makes heirloom-quality jewelry in bold, colorful designs. Size matters—some of Kaufman’s cocktail rings feature more than 20 carats of stones such as Brazilian emeralds, white sapphires, and pink tourmalines and cost in the five figures.
Minimalist: Made by hand in her Fulton Market studio, Lombardi’s geometric pendants and spike earrings ($80 to $150) are created from repurposed materials like antique brass and vintage beads—the kind of casual cool pieces that have attracted Liv Tyler and other celebs to the line.
