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.
it's an eye-opener

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.
A truly gifted and talented jewelry designer!!!
By omaryousif on 11/28/2008
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!!!
a real artist, and a good egg

Lisa is one of a kind. A very talented and creative designer who was willing to work with me to create something unique and beautiful that was just right for my girlfriend (now fiancĂ©e). She's also a kind and genuine person which really makes a difference when the stakes are high.

we had a beautiful experience working with lisa. after walking past her east village storefront during its construction, noticing the salvaged barn wood, we knew this was the place to commission our wedding rings. her philosophy is in line with our eco & sustainable beliefs & lifestyle. from the very first meeting, lisa was warm, attentive, knowledgeable about her craft & not afraid to explain it. we brought her an old stone to set in recycled 18 karat gold & got exactly what we wanted. the result is simple, elegant, organic & handcrafted with love.
This store is awesome!

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!

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!
Love this place!

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!
