Laura Munder returns to Worth Avenue

Laura Munder exclusively at Hamilton Jewelers

Yes, that is Laura Munder who you’ve seen again on the Avenue.  While her well-known eponymous boutique on Worth Avenue closed several years ago, fine jewelry designer Laura Munder has returned to Palm Beach through a new exclusive relationship with Hamilton Jewelers.   Known for her color-rich branded pieces, many one-of-a-kind, she closed her retail store in 2010 to focus more on the creative process.  Since that time, Laura has been working on launching a new line of fashion-oriented pieces.  She has also  produced a new collection of “past hits,” remaking some of her most successful designs in new materials and stones. “I have been committed to working in the studio rather than in the store,” she said.

Laura Munder, artistic and fashion-driven

Since 1997, Laura’s appeal has always been fueled by an artistic and fashion-driven approach to designing. Being a long-time jewelry collector and jewelry lover herself, Laura’s design philosophy fuels her production of fresh, stylish pieces that she would want to have and wear. Stones are found all around the world. Her collection includes many one-of-a-kind pieces made with mandarin garnet, a rare stone available in extremely limited quantities.  A striking addition to the collection is the use of blackened gold in combination with diamonds, mandarin garnet, sapphires and tourmaline. “The blackening of gold represents the sense of old-world style, while the introduction of the colored gemstones produces a fresh and modern look,” says Laura.

Laura has spent a lifetime in the jewelry business. As the daughter of a renowned diamond expert, Laura quickly learned the skill of distinguishing remarkable stones and the talent required to delicately mold them into works of art. Her jewelry’s extravagant use of colorful gemstones, unusual cuts and unique settings have garnered loyalty from serious collectors.

Laura Munder, nationally recognized

The style of the Laura Munder Fine Jewelry Collection has also been recognized by national media. Women’s Wear Daily has identified Laura as one of the industry’s newest designers to contribute to the rise of branded jewelry. Pieces from Laura’s collection regularly appear in national fashion publications such as Vogue, Town and Country, Harper’s Bazaar, W, Women’s Wear Daily, InStyle, Glamour, as well as The New York Times.

Hollywood has been very interested in Laura Munder, with many celebrities spotted around town in her designs, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jada Pinkett Smith, Anne Hathaway, and Molly Simms.

To experience the Laura Munder precious jewelry collection in person, visit Hamilton Jewelers, 215 Worth Avenue.  Laura’s exquisite pieces will also soon be available online shortly at www.hamiltonjewelers.com.
