Patty Tobin has created some truly unique pieces this summer. These beautiful necklaces feature complex wire-wrap pendants in sterling silver. Patty has commissioned artisans from across the country, to create these precious one-of-a-kind works of wearable art.
The centerpiece of each piece consists of a central semi-precious gemstone woven (by hand) into an elaborate and intricate maze of winding sterling silver. By pairing each pendant with single or multiple strands of brightly colored semi-precious gemstones like the vibrant Apatite (left) and rich Prasiolite (center) shown above, Patty adds a burst of color that pulls you in until your focus falls on the remarkable central pendant designs.
More pieces are currently in the works and will be posted on our Facebook, Blog, and Instagram once available. To date five of the six first-edition designs have sold, including all three of the necklaces shown above (details provided at the end of this article). There is still one piece left and it’s this gorgeous Iolite gemstone necklace:
From left to right, here are the details for the necklaces shown at the beginning of this article:
Apatite briolette double-strand with Aquamarine wrapped in Sterling Silver, $1495.
Prasiolite briolette double-strand with raw green Emerald in Sterling Silver, $1495.

Last week, for the very first time, Patty Tobin was hosted by Bloomingdale’s personal shopping department, At Your Service, for the designer’s very own private Trunk Show at the store’s famous 59th Street flagship location in New York City!
Being invited to showcase our jewelry with the Personal Shopping department was a huge coo for us — and we don’t mind saying so! Patty and I were both thrilled to have the opportunity to not only meet the wonderful team of personal shoppers at Bloomingdale’s and introduce them to our line, but also to garner the attention of our their clients during our four day trunk show.
The women of At Your Service were lovely hosts. They were not only welcoming, but they were willing to make time to get to know us and to learn more about the line (despite their super jam-packed schedules). We’re extremely happy to report that they all loved, loved, loved the line. And, perhaps even more exciting, they LOVED our price points!
It was so exciting to interact with these women, all of whom are professional expert level shoppers. They are the ones that engage with Bloomingdale’s VIP clientele and in so doing, they are, perhaps more than anyone else, tapped into their customers’ taste, style, and spending preferences. And to receive so much enthusiastic feedback from each of them individually was incredibly encouraging and a real compliment.
Coming up next: Personal Shoppers’ Favorite Patty Tobin pieces and more news on our next AYS Trunk Show Event in December! Stay tuned…
Here’s a news flash worth getting up in arms over: Patty Tobin is now carrying a fabulous new collection of “gemmy” evening bags! The designer has brought together an impressive assortment of embellished clutches that are now available in New York at the Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry Boutique, 108 W. 17th Street, and in Albany at Circles in Stuyvesant Plaza.
“They’re the perfect compliment to our jewelry,” says the designer of the new bejeweled clutches. A longtime handbag aficionado, Patty Tobin can tell you first hand how “essential” a good handbag is to your wardrobe. “It’s like a piece of jewelry,” says Tobin. “Only you carry it instead.”
Wonderfully colorful and beautifully crafted, these gemmy little bags feature various animal embellishments from peacocks and cheetahs to tigers and turtles. “They’re just awesome,” says Jayne Drost, Director of the Elizabeth Dee Gallery in Chelsea. “I want to wear this at every art event I go to.”
All of the handbags come with an optional chain attachment that can be easily hooked on to use as a purse strap, or left off if you want to carry it as a clutch. “It’s great to have both options,” says Drost. “I really just want to hold it, but if I need to free up my hands, it’s super easy to just hook the strap on real quick and throw it over your shoulder. It’s still looks great.”
The new evening bags start at $145 for the satin clutches and $395 for the full crystal encrusted clutches. Call 212.414.0174 for more details on our current selection.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already July, and that we’ve officially wrapped up our first full series of Patty Tobin Trunk Show events at Bloomingdale’s! But here we are with 27 exciting days of showcase events under our belt (with more to come this Fall!) After 12 weeks of shows at four different Bloomingdale’s locations including New York City, White Plains, and Hackensack and Short Hills, New Jersey, Patty Tobin and I sat down to take stock of our biggest “show-stoppers” and customer favorites, and to put together our first TOP 10 BESTSELLERS LIST!
For those of you who are familiar with our “Fine Fashion” jewelry line, you already know that Patty creates a lot of “one-a-kind” and “few-of-a-kind” pieces in addition to her classic Patty Tobin signature styles, or our “standard bearers,” as she would call them. (For those of you who are checking us out for the first time, many of Patty’s designs are just that: “One-of” or “few-of” a kind pieces (a.k.a. limited edition items) and when they go, they’re gone; some will be replicated, but very seldom duplicated.)
The collection we brought with us to these shows, which kicked off back in March in New York City at Bloomingdale’s highly anticipated and widely promoted “HOT” event, represented a “Perfectly Patty” combination of said “One-ofs” and the designer’s “signature styles”. So, when we sat down to put together our TOP 10 list, we were faced with a bit of a challenge. We wanted to include not only the pieces that had sold the most in number, and were therefore obvious customer favorites, but also the real “show-stoppers” that may only have sold once due to the fact that they were, in fact, “one-of-a-kind” pieces. In the end, this is what we resolved to feature as our TOP 10 “RAVES & FAVES” AT BLOOMINGDALE’S:
TOP 10 BESTSELLERS
#1) NEW Shell Pearl Lariats
#2) 16MM Shell Pearls
#3) Ladies loved the LAB!
#4) Bali gets ’em every time
#5) + #6) + #7) Crazy for QUARTZ!!
#9) Fire Agate Ropes fly right out!
#10) Freshwater Pearl & Gemstone Lariats
Many of these styles will soon be available for sale on our website. In the meantime, please direct inquiries and purchase orders to us by phone at 212.414.0174 (or toll-free at 877.772.8891).
On March 14th Patty Tobin and I kicked off our first series of trunk shows at Bloomingdale’s! I’m gonna tell you all about it, but first I just want to say one thing to summarize how it went: WOHOOO!!! Patty and I couldn’t have been happier with our first two weeks of shows!
Simply put, the jewelry was a smash hit! The colors pulled people right in, and the prices — as usual for Patty Tobin — were so reasonable people couln’t believe it! It wasn’t just the customers responding to the jewelry either; everyone — from the sales associates on the selling floor to the personal shoppers upstairs to the various makeup artists running back and forth — was loving the collection!
In all honesty, we would have been more than happy with the opportunity to showcase our jewelry at any Bloomingdale’s store, but I have to say, there really was something very special about debuting at the 59th Street flagship store in Manhattan. It may just be my long-time love affair with that particular department store — or maybe it’s because it’s such an amazingly iconic place — but whatever the reason, I have to tell you: Each morning when the loud speakers around the store would sound off at 10AM sharp with a loud siren blast that let everyone know the doors were officially open for business, and Frank Sinatra’s voice came ringing out to “New York, New York,” I felt a truly thrilling sensation.
It wasn’t just the excitement, or the nerves for that matter, but an overwhelming sense of pride that bubbled up inside me, filling me with utter confidence. Pride for my amazing aunt, who has worked so hard to get this far. Pride in her amazing jewelry designs and all the wonderful people who have been such dedicated supporters of Patty Tobin; people who know and love the jewelry, appreciate its value, and who recognize Patty’s incredible talent. Pride that we are still one of the few jewelry companies that actually manufactures our products not just in the U.S., but right here in our home state of New York. And just an overall sense of satisfaction for how hard we’ve worked and how far we’ve come since openning our first Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry boutique in 2009.
With six days of shows at 59th Street and two in Short Hills, NJ, we got to meet so many wonderful people. Patty and I were both loving the opportunity to interact with so many new customers, fellow designers and entrepreneurs, as well as Bloomingdale’s amazing staff. The energy on the selling floor of such a large retailer as Bloomingdale’s is really quite invigorating. Despite being on our feet for 14 hours a day for the better part of those two weeks, as soon as we stepped on the floor, I could see we were both energized — “rearing and ready to go,” as they say!
Patty really outdid herself with the jewelry for these shows. The pieces she designed for Bloomingdale’s events included several of my all-time favorite Patty Tobin styles, plus a whole bunch of brand new pieces that were so new, in fact, even I didn’t get a chance to see them all until we were setting up on the first day!
The colors were just magnificent! Sparkling blues, rich purples and bright bursts of orange that were literally stopping people in their tracks. We had plenty of pearls, as always, but we had an especially fabulous collection of stunning “gemmy-gem gems,” as Patty would call them.
More exciting news and updates, plus plenty more photos from our first Trunk Shows in New York City and Short Hills are coming soon, so stay tuned for more at PattyTobin.com!

Patty Tobin introduced a fabulous new concept last fall when she first designed a collection of fire agate gemstone bracelets that feature a very strong, but very easy to maneuver magnetic clasp. For those of you who know Patty and her designs, you already know her reputation for attention to detail when it comes to selecting the perfect clasp for each piece and these new bracelets are no exception.
This year, Patty has taken it a step further introducing a fabulous new design featuring opaque cube-shaped Hematite gemstones with an egg-shaped white vermeil clasp. The stark contrast between the deep, richness of the gemstones’ charcoal color and the bright “blingy-ness” of the sparkling clasp makes for an absolutely stunning look. But the most exciting part is how easy it is to turn these bracelets into a short or long necklace!
Stack 1, 2, 3 or more as bracelets, or fasten two together to wear as a choker style necklace, or 3 or 4 together to make one long rope! Wear them together, separate, whatever you feel like. There are so many options from just a few bracelets!
Our customers in New York have been loving these bracelets! They’ll make for great holiday gifts, and at only $195 each, they won’t break the bank. You can always buy one or two to start, then add more later if you don’t want to splurge all at once. Starting today we’re offering a Special 20% Off Promotion on these bracelets from now through Small Business Saturday, November 24th, so this is a great time to buy and save on yours! (Now only $156! You save $50 on each one you buy!)
