Boston's jewelry designers are delivering exceptional service as well as jaw-dropping jewels, specializing in custom concepts that capture clients' personal styles. Here are some of our favorite creatives making swoon-worthy items.
M. Flynn Jewelry
What we love: In the words of Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock, “It takes two to make a thing go right.” Their adage holds true here, where sisters Moria and Megan Flynn custom create elegant fine jewelry that seamlessly combines classic and bohemian spirit at their flagship Boston boutique.
What we love: Michele Mercaldo’s clean-lined designs appeal to those with an appreciation for a modern aesthetic. Meticulous craftsmanship is evident in each piece, handmade in sterling silver, gold, platinum or a combination. The resulting effortless look is at once contemporary yet classic.
What we love: Laura Preshong finds inspiration in nature to create heirloom-quality, feminine pieces with a vintage aesthetic. (Fittingly, she hails from the Pine Tree State, Maine.) Each is custom designed in her South End studio and all elements, from diamonds to recycled metals, are ethically sourced.
What we love: Specializing in custom-made engagement rings—although she’s certainly not limited to such—Cynthia Britt takes her cue from the client and then creates a piece that showcases their individuality. Other things that inspire this designer: European travels and family heirlooms.
What we love: The sustainable line of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings is so popular here it has even caught the attention of celebrities like Taylor Schilling. Owner and designer Sophie Hughes makes fine, quality pieces out of recycled gold and silver in her studio just above the shop.
