Accessorizing is a no-brainer with this latest trend — permanent jewelry. Luckily, Auburn Jewelry specializes in the long-lasting baubles in Westchester.
How many times have we run out of the house in a flurry without donning some vital accessory? Samantha Levine of Chappaqua-based Auburn Jewelry is taking one step out of your getting-ready routine — by soldering the jewelry at both ends. Permanent jewelry has become a fast and popular trend due to its minimalism and simplicity. Available in sterling silver, 14k gold-filled, and solid 14k gold, the bracelets, necklaces, and anklets Levine fashions will never tarnish or discolor. A lawyer by trade, Levine has nourished her passion for creating and metalcraft since high school, even minoring in jewelry and metals during her undergraduate studies.
For her, the permanent-jewelry trend has a sentimental side. “It’s such a nice bonding experience for families. I can’t tell you how many families have come in to get matching bracelets or just get bracelets at the same time,” says Levine. “It’s so nice to see how it’s bringing people together.” Levine handcrafts custom charms and connectors for the chains upon request. And if you need to remove your jewelry for some reason, or your style has moved on, detaching it is as easy as a quick snip of the scissors. Prices range from just $75 up to $400 for solid-gold chains. auburnjewelry.com
