Modern classics with a dash of downtown chic, Cynthia creates jewelry for the urban sophisticate with sparkle + shine. Expertly hand crafted in NYC with refined style, she deftly mixes metals and organic stones with texture and rich color. An eclectic blend of modern and vintage inspired style drives Cynthia's personalized approach to designing unique pieces with a timeless quality.
The very essence of a native New Yorker, Cynthia entered the fashion industry making bespoke jewelry for Isaac Mizrahi and launching her first collection in 1987. Her designs attracted a cult following and appeared on the runways of New York's premier designers, including Bill Blass and Oscar De La Renta. Cynthia Rybakoff jewelry was carried in top retailers including Barney's, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, and graced the pages of leading fashion tomes of the late 80's and early 90's.
Something of a phenomenon in the ever changing fashion industry, Cynthia has remained not just relevant, but at the forefront of the industry, designing jewelry for herself and others, including corporate stints at Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger. Cynthia re-launched her signature brand in 2007, evolving her style to the popular fashion jewelry she's known for today, and collaborated with Club Monaco and Tommy Hilfiger on capsule collections. A favorite brand with fashion forward locals, editors and international visitors, the Cynthia Rybakoff shop, which doubles as a wholesale showroom, is located in Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market, NYC.
