Portrait of our jewelry designer Karen Karch modeling her rings and unique style at our 38 Gramercy Park N. store location

Karen Karch- the woman as well as the brand- is known for contradictory style. Both grungy and glamorous, distressed and polished, her broad range of inspirations encompasses classicism to modern culture, resulting in designs that balance of-the-moment with everlasting. 

 Karen's initial years in New York were spent attending Parsons School of Design. Immediately swept up by the energy of the city in the 90’s, she cultivated her distinctive aesthetic. Prior to completing her studies, Karen's work was featured on MTV and in the press, and was soon to be available at leading retailers known for celebrating new talent, including Barney’s New York.

Known for infusing boundary pushing elements to precious materials naturally led Karen to apply this same revolutionary approach to bridal designs. Custom commissions arose and continue to be a significant part of her work today. 

 Karen's first boutique, PUSH, soon rebranded as Karen Karch, opened in NoLita, a SoHo adjacent neighborhood, in 1996. Here she held court for her diverse clientele who offered endless inspiration which enabled her to further carve out her niche.

 To better accommodate personalized appointments, Karen then relocated her salon to Gramercy Park in 2011-2020. It was also here that Karen collaborated with her protégé Deme Wolfe-Power to launch designs with a more price-accessible spirit.

Karen now brings her three decades of experience to her online shop. Karen is available for custom design consultations, both in person and virtually.
