Behind The Jewels

It’s the sum of materials, time, and care that goes into manufacturing our designs that makes them luxurious.

Since 2008, we’ve made statement accessories that are inspired by travel, artisanal crafts, fine art, and architecture.

Lizzie Fortunato designs are predominantly made in our New York City studio, and we are focused on intentional production: sourcing limited edition, natural, and recycled materials from around the globe, as much as possible and
never overproducing.

Our Materials

We design statement jewelry in 24k gold-plated brass and sterling silver, as well as 14k-gold fine jewelry with semi-precious and precious stones.

With the help of skilled artisans and vendors around the globe, we source materials that are often limited edition, handmade, or recycled.

Our signature mixed-medium designs are often comprised of many different materials.

Our glass pieces are produced by an artisan in upstate New York, who heats rods of glass in a 2,000 degree flame and molds them by hand into our designs.

Our Makers

The majority of our pieces are assembled right here under our roof in NYC.

We employ a small but mighty team of expert jewelry-makers to carefully assemble our pieces.

We’re proud that most of these makers are women, who work both in our studio and from their homes so they can simultaneously look after kids, care for their families, and make living wages.
