The American company “Jay Strongwater” creates unique jewelry and luxurious interior accessories. Highly qualified designers follow the main principle “Luxury is a special attention to details”.
A graduate of Rhode Island Design School, Strongwater began his career as a jeweler. In 1981, he created a small collection of jewelry. Oscar de la Renta almost immediately noticed the young designer, and the very next year, jewelry marked Jay Strongwater appeared in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. This allowed him to open his first studio in New York, and his jewelry began its ascent to world catwalks.
However, gradually the fashion shows began to do without the use of jewelry at all, or couturiers prefer cheaper versions of jewelry. Understanding this, in 1994 Jay Strongwater created a collection of … photo frames! Noteworthy, for the first time in his work, he uses jewelry techniques: jewelry alloys of tin, bronze and copper, coated with colored enamel using the Faberge technique and inlaid with semiprecious stones and Swarovski crystals. He pays equal attention to both the front and back of the products, which subsequently becomes his quality mark and business card.
