“Mimi So personifies the very jewelry she designs; to meet her is to understand the confident women who wear her pieces,” says Gerard Riveron, Executive Director of Dorfman Jewelers in Boston. And he should know. The Mimi So collections will be available when Dorfman reopens in mid-November, after being “completely reimagined and redesigned” in a top-to-bottom renovation. Riveron says his sophisticated jewelry clients are already clamoring for Mimi’s designs, “including Mimi So’s bows!”

Mimi’s popular Bow Collection features rings, between-the-finger rings, necklaces and earrings in 18K gold, many with diamonds and gemstones. Mimi created the modern Bow Ring to commemorate special moments in her life. Like the designer herself, this romantic collection reflects a spirited attitude.

Mimi So was born and raised in New York City. As a young child, she worked in her parents’ jewelry atelier, which fostered her desire to design. After graduating from Parsons School of Design, she launched her namesake business in 1998. When costume designer Patricia Field tapped her to create jewelry for the ladies of HBO’s Sex and the City, Mimi’s fashionable following soared.

In addition to the Bow Collection, Mimi So’s designs at Dorfman include: the Phoenix Collection, featuring delicate feather- or leaf-like motifs; the Piece Collection, fashioned of her signature concentric squares; and the Couture Collection.

“Mimi So has achieved a cult following of Hollywood A-Listers, international jetsetters, and women of style who know what they like—including those in Boston,” says Dorfman’s Riveron.
