Stephen Dweck designs could be described as fine fashion jewelry with funk and flair; there is nothing about his pieces that anybody would call classic—and that’s their appeal. Dweck jewelry are fashion pieces, accessories meant to make statements and start conversations. As such, you’ll find that the price points are a little more affordable than because they’re not necessarily intended for everyday wear. You’ll see that right away when you spot his pieces at Vienna Jewelry on Maple Ave.
Dweck’s first foray into jewelry design was hand-carved stone bangles, a fusion of painting and sculpture, which he was studying at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 1981, his first line was launched at Bergdorf Goodman, and was soon spotted by Geoffrey Beene, who brought it to the runway. Dweck’s artistic fashion designs have been part of the fashion and jewelry worlds ever since.
Dweck’s designs often draw inspiration from nature, and frequently feature flower and leaf designs. He also makes use of stones he collects from around the world and uses to create OAK (one of a kind) pieces that are emblazoned with his hallmark beetle, Adam. These are favorites of collectors, since no two are alike. Pieces from the Luxury Signature Collection are the rarest OAKs set in 18K gold and are the most coveted.
