This week’s jewelry news…New York City is a frenzy of well-dressed fashion editors, reporters, photographers, bloggers, buyers, designers, supermodels, and celebrities. They’re all in town to attend the Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collections during New York Fashion Week (September 4 through 11). While the official home of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is Lincoln Center, much of the action has migrated south, with many designers presenting in Chelsea, SoHo, Tribeca, and the Meatpacking District.

In this post we bring you news of two megawatt jewelry designers who have opened downtown outposts just in time to catch the Fashion Week shopping crowd. Look to Friday’s OBJ for Jewelry Highlights from the New York Spring/Summer 2015 Collections.

California-born jewelry designer Jennifer Fisher started her business nearly a decade ago after designing a dog tag with her son’s name on it. She has since acquired legions of fans, including a celebrity following. Fisher, who now lives in Tribeca, has opened her first NYC store in the Flatiron district. You’ll find gold bracelet charms ranging from astrological signs that start at $250 to a gold tusk with pavé diamonds for $7,000. Her brass knot chokers for $495 hit the perfect note with many of this season’s minimalist looks.

Aurelie Bidermann

French jewelry sensation Aurelie Bidermann just opened her first freestanding U.S. boutique in New York, a city she refers to as her “second home.” She told The New York Times that the Lafayette Street store in SoHo was inspired by New York and Los Angeles in the ’60s and ’70s (although its perky blue-and-white awnings look curiously French to us). Bidermann’s collection includes a series of exclusive scarab-themed pieces accented with lapis lazuli.
“The blue felt very New York to me,” said Aurelie.
