After visiting her incredible showroom in Manhattan’s trendy West Village, one will truly have a welcoming experience with a view of true artisan work.
Catherine hit the workforce at a very young age, taking any position the jewelry industry had to offer; from selling jewelry to polishing. Paying her dues and scrounging for work, Catherine didn’t care. Her goal: to start her own business in the industry she fell so passionately in love with. Her tenacity eventually landed her a job with a jeweler who was willing to share his knowledge and strongly believed in her talent. It was here she began to truly learn all the in’s and out’s and details to success. She soon began to design her own line of jewelry; then in silver. She sold her designs anywhere she could; the park, the bus, to office secretaries, and even one “special” booking agent named, Courteney Cox.
Catherine’s designs were completely unlike the masses, thus it took time for the industry to truly appreciate and embrace her creations. Fusing her love for music with her adoration for fine art, Award Winning Designer Catherine Angiel is, now, celebrated and recognized for her innovation worldwide, as evidenced by her loyal following of celebrity clientele. She is recognized by her peers as a cutting edge, trend setting designer. Her visions to combine a rock ‘n’ roll edge with delicate elegance in fine diamond and gold jewelry, dramatically influenced, and transformed the jewelry industry forever.

Her collections run the gamut, from Vintage inspired Engagement Rings to Handcrafted Wedding Bands, 22kt gold Gothic Jewelry, Black Diamond Jewelry, and Edgy Rock and Roll Designs.

Her attention to detail and quality combined with her innovative and singular style, revolutionized her art, and has solidified her as a renegade in the field.
