Who is Irene Neuwirth
Irene Neuwirth is a jewelry designer from Los Angeles. Her love affair with art and color was sparked at an early age by her bohemian, painter mother, while her business-minded father taught her the principles of entrepreneurship. She began experimenting with jewelry design after college, stringing glass beads, mixing precious and semiprecious stones together without pretense or plan. Soon, she found herself inundated with requests for her one-of-a-kind pieces. In 2003, Irene Neuwirth Jewelry was born. Since then, the world has fallen in love with Irene’s whimsical sensibility and easy way with luxury. Her fascination with intense colors and raw, un-manufactured gem cuts have become signatures of her line. As a red carpet favorite, the collection is worn by many of the most accomplished women in entertainment including Naomi Watts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Paulson, Busy Philipps, and Ruth Negga. Also, an editorial darling, the jewelry is consistently featured by top publications including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, W, and The New York Times. Irene travels the globe to find the most beautiful and interesting gemstones and returns home to LA to design and produce her collection. With sophistication, femininity, and charm, each piece is aspirational and approachable at once. Today the collection can be found at our flagship stores on Melrose Place in Los Angeles and Madison Avenue in New York City, our Capitol + Irene Neuwirth destination at the Brentwood Country Mart, as well as leading boutiques across the globe.
