Shop for Wendy Mink Jewelry
Founded over twenty years ago by designer Wendy Mink in New York City, Wendy Mink Jewelry has evolved from small-scale design and manufacturing to a substantial business that combines great workmanship and innovative, eclectic design.
After completing an MFA in Painting, Wendy traveled extensively through South East Asia where she developed an immense appreciation of the beauty and craftsmanship behind the jewelry and textiles associated with local women of Nepal and India. During this time, she developed a keen appreciation for the beauty and craftsmanship of jewelry and textiles produced by women of the region, from everyday apparel to their traditional wedding dresses.
She went on to formulate the company shortly after returning from the East, quickly earning a solid reputation and securing a place in the competitive jewelry industry.
The success of Wendy Mink Jewelry today is due not only to Minks own inspired designs but also to the team of highly skilled Tibetan women who handcraft each individual piece of jewelry in the Greenwich Village based studio. The materials used are of high quality and include sterling, 22K gold vermeil and semi-precious stones. Most recently 22K gold pieces have been added to the range. The signature pieces within each collection combine aspects of traditional Eastern world jewelry with classic European design resulting in an extensive range available from retailers in the U.S, Europe & Australia.
Mink's signature pieces combine aspects of traditional Eastern jewelry with classic European designs, the collections themselves are a ever-changing array of styles that traverse boundaries and succeed in appealing to a hugely diverse market.
Wendy Mink jewelry is available in may boutiques throughout the United States and Europe and well-known department stores like Takashimaya and Barneys NY and Japan.
