Alexis Bittar has been described as one of the greatest jewelry designers of the twenty first century. Bittar went from selling his wares on the streets of New York to marketing his eponymous jewelry collections in more than 34 countries around the world.
Alexis Bittar Jewelry History
At the age of ten, Bittar began selling flowers from a hand-painted cart near his home in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn. He continued his entrepreneurial career throughout his teen years, selling antique jewelry and vintage clothing on the streets. Today, he is a recognized American jewelry designer and recipient of the 2010 CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Accessory Designer of the Year award.
Alexis Bittar Styles
Hand-crafted from Lucite and semi-precious stones, Bittar's pieces have a unique charm like no other. While each item can stand on its own as a luxurious accent, many of Bittar's jewelry work beautifully in groups.
Alexis Bittar bracelets and bangles in particular are made for this dual purpose. Alone, each piece is a work of art, taking inspiration from a variety of elements, cultures, and times. Put together in groups of twos or threes for a stacked appearance, the jewelry creates a sense of opulence without appearing too over the top.
While Bittar's bracelets and bangles are a favorite among many, his collection also covers earrings, necklaces, and rings.
Earrings by Alexis Bittar are notable not just for their excellent craftsmanship, but also for the way they've added an interesting touch to the classic hoop shape. Adorned with textured metal and woven with Swarovski crystals, these new hoop earrings have a vintage appeal mixed with fashion-forward style.
His collection of necklaces also features the same delicate craftsmanship. They cover a variety of designs ranging from the artfully delicate to show-stopping pieces that will surely stand out.
Finally, Alexis Bittar's rings add a unique statement to any outfit. His stacked and clustered rings make a perfect pair with his collection of bangles and bracelets, complementing their opulent look.
Alexis Bittar's unique combination of high-art craftsmanship and current street-cred style has carried the master-of-modern jewelry designer to great heights. Red carpet A-listers like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Cameron Diaz, and Alicia Keys to name a few, are regularly sighted wearing Bittar's designer jewelry.
