Erica Weiner Jewelry was founded in 2005. Thanks to some very supportive wholesale customers and an ever-growing and loyal fan base, we have grown exponentially over the last several years. In our studio on the Lower East Side, we design, promote, manufacture and assemble costume jewelry. We sell this always-changing line to 300+ stores around the world through our website, ericaweiner.com, our wholesale portal, ericaweiner.com/wholesale, and at our retail store in Nolita. At this shop, which we opened in November 2010, we also sell a selection of antique fine jewelry. Our wholesale line is still the heart of our brand, and it continues to evolve.
