Passion and creativity were the driving forces that brought Jenny Klatt and Stephanie Wynne Lalin together to launch Jemma Wynne in 2008. Guided by their uniquely sophisticated and chic sensibility, the design duo combines classic polish with relaxed femininity to create their fine jewelry collection.
Stephanie and Jenny each developed their unique personal aesthetics at a young age, taking inspiration from around the globe. Moved by her extensive travels throughout Europe while an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania, Jenny began designing intricately detailed mosaic art, tiled furniture and jewelry, which she then transformed into a successful, growing business. Meanwhile, inspired by a small bead store in Washington, D.C. that she frequented while studying graphic design at American University, Stephanie began to create unique custom pieces, which she then successfully sold in stores throughout New York and New Jersey. Jenny and Stephanie’s paths finally crossed in 2005 while working together in product development at a fine jewelry house in NYC. It was there they realized their shared design philosophy and began to forge a collaboration that would ultimately become Jemma Wynne.
Together, Jenny and Stephanie breathe fresh life into precious jewels by adding their unique perspective and unexpected detail to all of their creations. Today, Jemma Wynne can boast a growing roster of celebrity fans including January Jones, Rihanna, Kristen Bell, Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Camila Alves, Reese Witherspoon and Olivia Palermo.
As New Yorkers we are inspired by the diversity of the city. We recognize that women aim to express themselves in different ways using their unique sense of fashion and style every day.
We founded Jemma Wynne with the intention of creating “go to” jewelry. Our vision is to create jewelry for women who desire a sophisticated look that declares a strong fashion sensibility yet maintains a casual ease. We define the design aesthetic and point of view of the collection as the “cashmere hoodie” of jewelry. It’s rich, but comfortable.
Our passion for visionary jewelry design is the driving force behind each of our collections. Working side by side in our NYC studio, we combine our personal styles of relaxed femininity and classic polish. While each collection has unique design elements, our collections also work together and can be layered and mixed.
The juxtaposition of precious gemstones and “ready to wear” sensibility results in a jewelry collection that is classic and chic. It always feels appropriate and is the perfect way to enjoy luxury without being overdone.
Retail prices range from $450 – $30,000 with pieces priced up to $250,000.
