Designers to Watch: Lilly Street

New York based fine jewelry brand Lilly Street, encompasses all things that artisanal craftsmanship should be. From thoughtful designs to whimsical inspirations, classically trained goldsmith Lynn Gambino creates jewelry that embodies her life passions. Love for the arts, literature, ancient studies and the cosmic world all hold significance in her latest collection.

Using socially and ethically mined materials and brilliant diamonds, Lilly Street offers an extensive yet well curated selection, giving jewelry lovers of all ages options that are appropriate for day and more ornate pieces for evening. Lilly Street develops her pieces with a conscious ode to “downtown elegance.”

With names like Sea Queen, Helios Pendant and Radiance Corset, one cannot help but feel the positive vibes that Lilly Street’s creations effortlessly give off. Each technical curvature and detail seen in the collection speaks to a philosophical storyline that Gambino deeply believes in. “A crack in the heart…lets in the light,” is amongst one of Gambino’s favorite quotes that she has made come alive through a timeless 18K rose gold locket topped with a perfect lightning bolt incrusted with pave diamonds.

On most days, Gambino can be found at her home workshop out in Long Island drawing and chipping away at pieces that will one day be part of someone’s jewelry collection and in many cases part of a cherished life event. Being part of that experience gives Gambino spirit and purpose in jewelry designing and focuses a big portion of her business on special orders and customization for private clients.

Lilly Street has had recent editorial placements in Town&Country, Four Seasons Magazine and several on and off red carpet moments, proving that the brand is certainly shining bright in the jewelry scene, and we are not just talking about the diamonds!
