“Jewelry is something that takes a long time to get right. Integrating technical skills into one’s own sense of style and design occurs over time. Real jewelry isn’t seasonal, it’s evolutionary.”
Australian-born Ray Griffiths has been creating beautiful jewelry for more than 30 years.
Drawing on inspiration from architecture and art, Ray’s skillful craftsmanship and unique ability to interpret a client’s aesthetic enable him to create enduring pieces. Ray’s creations are as sleek in their beauty as they are comfortable to wear.
Renowned for his exquisite metalwork, brilliantly-cut gemstones, profound technical skills and harmonious designs, Ray creates heirloom earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets. The “crownwork” visible in his settings reflect his early training fabricating the intricate substructure of tiaras and crowns. With a degree from the Gemology Institute of Sydney, few modern jewelers know what Ray does about composition, form and valuation of precious metals, gems and diamonds. Ray extracts the best out of the materials composing each piece.
Ray's collection is rapidly collecting admirers amongst the media, celebrities and private collectors of fine jewelry. The New York Times “Styles” section shopping critic Cintra Wilson raved, "I was stunned by the work of Ray Griffiths, an Australian designer trained in the dying art of designing and repairing crowns for royalty. His bracelets are jaw-dropping…" Ray made his television debut on the hit Bravo’s "Real Housewives of New York" Alex McCord’s favorite designer; Debra Messing, Toni Collette, Rachel Griffiths, Angela Basset and Brooke Shields are some of the famous faces wearing his beautiful creations.
Ray Griffiths Fine Jewelry is sold in select boutiques in the US. Private appointments are also available at his Fifth Avenue studio in New York.
