About the Company:

After over 10 years in the jewelry business, each piece of Nina Berenato’s collection still touches the designer’s hands. From her humble beginnings as a metalsmith’s apprentice in Brooklyn to gracing the pages of Vogue, W, Cosmopolitan, and MTV and outfitting fashion-forward celebrities like Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Lena Dunham, FKA Twigs and Lizzo, it’s obvious that Nina walks through life with her eyes open, bringing a one of a kind vision to each design. 

A large part of Nina Berenato Jewelry's brand identity rests on the designer's goal to use her gift for design to make all women feel powerful, beautiful and capable of anything. Each piece is cast using 100% recycled metal, finished in the highest quality 14k gold plating, and set with stones that are sourced and mined ethically.
