Whitney Stern.

"Everyday Glam with an Edge"

Oval Chrysophrase Freedom Ring
14k Gold with Oxidized Sterling and Diamonds


Launched in 2007, and now just recently signed on full time at Henri Bendel...meet my newest obsession, Whitney Stern. Whitney Stern is a local company based in Seattle, Washington, works closely with fair trade female artisans in Lima, Peru, and sells to Manhattan's Elite in New York City. I spoke with Rachel, who is PR for Whitney Stern and she gave me great insight to the company and provided me the beautiful images of Whitney Stern's brand new line.

The Whitney Stern jewelry line was launched by designer Whitney Stern, after having been inspired by the indigenous artisan women Whitney met while living and studying in South America. Jewelry was soon being created combining the purest natural metals with chic, glamorous, and sophisticated designs.

with Prongs encasing Free Form Black Drusy Agate


"We both really believe in the importance of a piece of jewelry to a person, and how their story can be passed down through these items."


Whitney Stern is an eco friendly designer and a majority of the materials used in her jewelry are recycled. Whitney uses this recycled jewelry concept and turns it into her own "Re-Jeweled" Service where she creates custom jewelry by taking an older piece from someones past and "re-vamps" it by making it edgier, more modern, and new to be passed on. Whitney Stern's designs are recognizable by the sanded finish and the WS signature bimetals.

"I love contrasts, blending darks and lights and incorporating colorful natural earth stones that reflect the inner spirit of the person who wears them."
