Lori Kaplan Jewelry

"Classic, chic, handmade jewelry from Soho, New York. One-of-a-kind pieces made one at a time. Join me in my sandbox of colorful gemstones; I never tire of playing with them."

Lori Kaplan's travels to Europe as a young adult inspired her love of antique jewelry and classical sensibilities. She has always preferred "classic" to "trendy," so the trick is how to take "classic" and merge it with "today." Her work is generally delicate, feminine, and unobtrusive.

Kaplan was classically trained using ancient jewelry-making techniques dating from Byzantine times. Today, she incorporates these traditional techniques with more current techniques. Working primarily in 18K gold—often recycled by her—Kaplan frequently uses bezel settings with colorful gemstones as the focal point. She sometimes casts her ring bands and hand fabricates the focal stone bezel, which makes every piece one of a kind.

A native of Philadelphia, Lori Kaplan began her jewelry journey by making semiprecious beaded necklaces and learning wire wrapping by obsessively watching YouTube videos. A few years later, she took classes in New York City at Bianca Lopez Studio of Jewelry Art and Design, where her brand was launched. She has a BFA from Moore College of Art in fine art photography.
