Seattle Designer Whitney Stern Gives Vintage Jewelry a Fresh, Glam Look

With fall – and a wardrobe change — just around the corner, it’s time to take inventory. And, what’s better than finding you can reuse something from seasons past in a new, modern way?

Seattle-based jewelry designer Whitney Stern — whose pieces have been featured in Elle, Lucky and Seattle Bride magazine  — makes revamping your accessory options easy with her Couture collection, launched this month.

Stern works directly with clients to take pieces from the past (like wedding rings, pendants and family heirlooms), turning them into hip accessories. “There’s a story behind every heirloom,” Stern says, “especially in the things that women pass down for generations. I love working with customers to help them create a meaningful and personalized piece [they can use today].”

The designer started Whitney Stern Jewelry Design in 2007 with one goal in mind: Create beautiful, eco-friendly and sustainable jewelry. Translation? Everyday glam, with edge.

Today, you can snag her pieces at Seattle boutiques and salons (including Horseshoe in Ballard and downtown’s Marco Two Union Square), nationally at Henri Bendel in New York City, and online.

To create your custom, re-jeweled look, or for information on other designs, visit Stern’s website, or contact the designer directly.
