When I first saw a piece of Finn Jewelry in the June 2009 issue of Vogue it was love at first sight. Finn’s love knot rings were featured in Vogue’s article about budget friendly weddings and they stole the show. Sold at Barney’s New York the rings run start at a mere $500—now that’s hard to beat! Below are the rings from Vogue.
Well, I was so in love with the rings that I promptly made an appointment at the Finn Jewelry headquarters on Great Jones Street (Barney’s had sold out!) in Manhattan. The girls behind the company, Candice and Soraya, are sweet as can be and were SO very helpful during our visit. Here’s a picture of Candice and Soraya taken by Emily Travis Photography.
It’s no wonder why they were voted two of Paper Magazine’s Most Beautiful People in 2005! The girls hail from Texas and New York and make the perfect team—Soraya designs and Candice handles the business details. Beyond American Vogue the girls’ designs have also been praised in the pages of Elle, W, and French Vogue, just to name a few. Their pieces also have quite the celebrity following having been snatched up by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon, Blake Lively, Giselle Bundchen and Naomi Watts. Clearly, these young ladies are doing something right!
