Personalized Text Jewelry
KANAREK Jewelry celebrates the body as a site for expression. Our made-to-order language jewelry is available in silver or gold, studded with diamonds and gems. Our jewelry is always made by hand in New York City, and like the city's diverse people, it speaks many tongues - English, Hebrew, Arabic, Spanish, Yiddish...
We are happy to work with you personalize our designs for you and your loved ones, and just as happy to offer some expressive, personal, or political gift that can be shipped in a day or two.
While many of our pieces are made to order, we do have a secret stash ;)
Order now and we'll get it out to you in 1-2 days.
From Our Blog and Press
What inspires us to wear particular language close to our body? Our featured stories explores this question, sharing stories behind our pieces of custom text jewelry and revealing new pieces which celebrate language in many forms.
Prose in Jewelry
Often times we overlook the meaning of words but there is a lot of significance behind the words of those who spoke of love and inspiration. Read more on what inspired our “Come, said my soul” piece.
The Festival of Lights
Each year Hanukkah is celebrated by millions of people of the Jewish faith. ‘Hanukkah’ is Hebrew for dedication. The dedication to the temple in Jerusalem is celebrated with the festival of lights, a nightly lighting of the menorah.
Sit Stay Heal
When your creations lead you somewhere excellent, it feels serendipitous. As if the universe showers you with gifts. The Sit Stay Heal bracelet led me to the Rubin Museum of Art.
The World Is Born in a Hug
On October 8, 2017, I married my best friend Gili Getz. It was a glorious event.
Resistance in Review
I wanted to start this post with a lighthearted list of resolutions. But here are some of my more serious highlights from this past year.
I first met Alex at Abraço, my favorite cafe off E 7th and 1st. It was spring and there was an air of newness everywhere, from the budding weeds in the sidewalk cracks to relationships starting and ending.
For the Runner in All of Us
Admittedly, I was never a runner. Not for lack of trying, though. My best time was 2 miles in 40 minutes after running for eight months (don’t laugh. Okay laugh.)
Close to Your Heart
Bringing exceptional verse close to the heart has a been a mission of ours and a source of great inspiration. Here are three poems by masters of the pen, Khalil Gibran, Leah Goldberg, and Gertrude Stein.
A wonderful interview with Yael Kanarek on Arq. Yael discusses her background, her love for language, art practice and Jewelry.
