Each piece of Emilie Shapiro jewelry is handmade to order from start to finish in my NYC studio by myself and my team of highly skilled, female artisans.
We are extremely passionate about sustainability & aim to have as little waste as possible. All of our metal is 100% recycled and nickel free.
We work mainly with raw gemstones that are celebrated for the beauty in their imperfections. The majority of our gemstones are purchased directly from the miner and are left exactly how they were found in the Earth. There is no stone waste during the cutting process or chemicals used to polish the gems.
