The holidays are coming, and so-called engagement season is fast approaching. Little wonder, then, that jewelry is on the brain. For the city’s stellar local jewelers, of course, jewelry is top of mind year-round. And now we finally have a proper way to celebrate them: New York City Jewelry Week, which kicks off Nov. 12 and runs through Nov. 18. Participants range from up-and-comers to behemoths like David Yurman and Fred Leighton, and events will include panels and studio tours. Unlike New York Fashion Week, many events are open to the public. Here, some jewelers worth checking out because, simply put, they make cool stuff.
Head to UrbanGlass to catch Erica Rosenfeld’s work displayed in “UrbanSparkle,” an exhibition celebrating the city’s leading glass jewelry makers. Then pick up one of Ms. Rosenfeld’s bold creations, which she produces in limited-edition, six-month runs.
Erica Rosenfeld’s work is on display from Nov. 14 to Nov. 18 at UrbanGlass, 647 Fulton Street, Brooklyn.
