About RTJ

 

Ronnie saying hi from her studio 

If you’re like me, you love to be surrounded by beauty. Whether found in nature or found at a shop, you always know when the perfect piece of jewelry finds you. It speaks to you, and you simply have to have it. But we often find that we lock away our unique pieces of adornment, and won’t wear them unless there is a special occasion. My mission is to change that.

My handcrafted works use contemporary processes to transform treasured materials I've discovered, like hand cut gemstones, vibrant Italian glass, and shimmery mother-of-pearl into wearable designs that will enhance your everyday style. When shopping Ronnie Taubenfeld Jewelry, you will find an assortment of collections- from quietly luminous pendants to vibrant, colorful & fun statement rings, studs and necklaces, allowing you to express your unique beauty through jewelry that you’ll want to wear every day.

I’ve always loved design. Though I pursued an interest in Interior Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design, I eventually switched to the Jewelry and Light Metals Department, where I fell in love with forging metals and creating art with fire. I later worked in Providence, RI and NYC as a designer of costume jewelry and learned about casting, plating, mold making, photo-etching and other industrial production techniques.

Today, I combine the two worlds that have influenced me the most- the precision of my metalworking background and the quick pace of the fashion world- to create one-of-a-kind jewelry artwork that is suitable for everyday wear. While every piece is unique, they all reflect back to my goal of helping you enhance your everyday style, no matter your aesthetic.
