A native of Southern California, Irene's fundamental inspiration is the ocean. Its purity, power and colors are all key elements at the origin of her designs. Her fascination with intense colors and raw, un-manufactured gem cuts, have become signature trademarks of the line. From the moment she began designing jewelry, Irene was inundated with requests to purchase her one-of-a kind pieces. In 2003, she brought a small collection to Barneys New York, where the buyer placed a significant order after their first meeting. One year after joining Barneys, Irene Neuwirth ranked among the store's top selling jewelry lines, a position maintained to this day. In the fall of 2014, Irene opened her own flagship store on the tree lined street Melrose Place in West Hollywood. The jewel box space was designed by Pam Shamshiri of Commune and marked the first time Irene’s vision was realized in a full brand experience.
Irene Neuwirth is an independent, fine jewelry company based in Los Angeles. Founded in 2003 by designer Irene Neuwirth and business partner Tracy Stoll, the company has emerged as a leading jewelry brand in the US, recognized by its uniquely modern and sophisticated designs. Irene's collections are widely anticipated season to season by a fashion-forward and discriminating clientele, who have come to expect a line that delivers a precise balance between timeless, collectable jewelry and the ultimate statement in modern luxury. The jewelry has generated tremendous editorial attention and is featured consistently in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, W, ELLE and InStyle. The collection is worn by some of the most beautiful women in the world, including Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Watts, Zoe Saldana, Julianne Moore and Iman. In 2008, Irene was a finalist for the coveted CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund, the pre-eminent honor for young American fashion designers. In 2009, she became a member of the CFDA. In 2012, 2013 and again in 2014, she was nominated for a CFDA Award, the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design; in 2014, she won this award. In 2013 she was the recipient of the Women’s Jewelry Association’s Design Award for Excellence in Fine Jewelry. In 2014 she was nominated for a GEM Award for Design, one of the fine jewelry industry’s premier accolades. In 2015 and again in 2016, Irene was nominated for the prestigious CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year Award.
