Cynthia Rybakoff is a native New Yorker who has created jewelry for American fashion icons Isaac Mizrahi, Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger to name but a few. Expertly crafted in NYC with refined style and subtle artisan details, Cynthia designs fine fashion jewelry with a pop culture twist.
Trained as an artist, with an intuitive eye for color and trend, she began her career creating wearable art in the 80’s. When rising fashion star Isaac Mizrahi asked Cynthia to collaborate on a series of runway jewels, the media embraced her imaginative style. From 1987 to 1994, Cynthia created jewelry for New York’s premier designers, including Bill Blass, Oscar De La Renta and Carolyne Roehm, while being regularly featured in top magazines and selling her unique handcrafted pieces internationally.
In the mid 90’s, Cynthia was invited to design for brands such as Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, and became a corporate design director for over 10 years. Feeling the need to return to her independent roots, Cynthia re-launched her collection in 2007. Inspired by an eclectic mix of classic, vintage and contemporary design, infused with her unique personal style, Cynthia creates sterling silver and semi-precious stone jewelry with a distinctive modern edge.
