awesome ethical designs!
By pcranston on 2/23/2009
I knew I wanted an ethical engagement ring, and that I didn't want something off the shelf. Lisa somehow took all my conflicting ideas about what I thought I had in mind and walked me through her design process to come up with some great options. And, I knew I could trust her when the stone that she guided me to on memo was the one that was the best value, not the one that was the most expensive. The ring that she created is incredible, in design and craft, and every time my fiancee gets a compliment on her ring it makes me look like a genius, but Lisa deserves all the credit! We'll be back when it's time to design our wedding bands!
A truly gifted and talented jewelry designer!!!

Once I knew I wanted to created a bespoke engagement ring for my girlfriend, I kicked off a search interviewing a dozen jewelry designers in NYC area. After a long search I decided to proceed with a creative relationship with Lisa to craft a one of a special piece for my one and only. The creative process was immaculate only to be topped by the final outcome. She listened to my needs and came back with suggestions that we iterated on to make the perfect piece. The experience was fantastic and I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about crafting something unique and special. My now fiancee is on cloud 9 today being both surprised and impressed by the ring Lisa and I collaborated on. She is a truly gifted and talented jewelry designer!!!
truly a gem amongst the filth
By wearethegoonsquad on 10/29/2008
This rarely happens to me. Usually what compels me to walk into a store in New York is either a sign that states a ridiculously good bargain or a mannequin in the store front window dressed in the exact thing that I've been complaining about needing for the past six months. I walked into this store with the intention of it's disappointment, but instead I'm dazzled by two extremely un-stuffy girls talking about astrology and one of them seemingly ecstatic about a new love prospect. On top of that, they even complimented me on an article of jewelry I was wearing that day. I wanted to buy one of everything, and believe I'll be back as soon as my budget is open for November!
Chic, eco-friendly jewelry...that's one-of-a-kind!

Lisa is a very talented designer and we are honored to have had her involved with our wedding favors. The cufflinks that Lisa created as wedding favors for our groomsmen came out stunning and just the way we had hoped! Lisa was a pleasure to work with - she is super creative, professional, patient and respected our preferences. Looking forward to working with Lisa again and recommending her to all of my friends and family.

This store caught my eye from the street and drew me in. The decor is great as well as the jewelry, all custom one of a kind. you want to buy them all. The owner/designer Lisa is about the nicest person you can meet and her work is truly beautiful and unique. There are other designers jewelry featured there as well "Joann Scully has some vintage charm cluster jewelry that is a wonderful addition to the store. The store has something for every taste from the elegant to whimsical couture.

Linhardt is fantastic. Its one of those store you cant just walk past, it draws you in. She has unique,beautiful, organic jewelry, Beyond the fantastic jewelry, Lisa ( the owner) is amazing. I am a stranger to her, yet she was so kind when helping me with my engagement ring. She is not only incredibly talented she is also very sweet, understanding and giving with her time. Love this place!

My girlfriend and I were looking for a unique wedding ring . . . an intimidating and potentially expensive endeavor. Lisa was helpful with every step. A huge relief! The service was great, but only a complement to her jewelry, which is both beautiful and unique. Freshly innovative and somehow timeless. . . I can't imagine trusting anyone else with the prcess we are going though. Her store is truly a find in the sea of designers and diamond hockers that is new york. Thank you Lisa!
it's an eye-opener
By apnyc on 8/26/2008
I collect contemporary art jewelry and I'm very impressed with this store. Lisa Linhardt offers a fine selection of elegant designs, inventive concepts and whimsical baubles. She has things nobody else has, and my eyebrows went up numerous times. I will go back regularly to check in on the growing, changing tapestry of new ideas.
This store is awesome!
By arlene527 on 8/25/2008
This shop is my new favorite jewelry shop destination! The designs are innovative and bold and I found the service amazing. Best of all, the pieces are one-of-a-kind and can't be ripped off by your friends from the local Banana Republic. I bought the signature ring in polished silver and keep getting compliments on it. Definitely check it out!
One-of-a-Kind Pieces of Work
By ais4apple on 8/25/2008
I really love the stuff that Linhardt has, the jewelry is truly unique and beautiful and the store is very nicely decorated. My only peeve when I shopped here was that the girl who was working when I walked in was on her cell phone and didn't really greet/offer me any help. I can't decide if that's a good thing in a way that there was no annoying salesperson bugging me to buy something but I even felt rude asking to see something while she was on the phone... I am kind of torn between loving the pieces they carry versus the help I wasn't really offered in the store. All-in-all, the work really is beautiful but next time the only thing I'd hope for is to feel as if my interest in their work is appreciated. I'd give it a "go" once more.
