Sarah Swell Jewelry

Sarah Greenberg, the designer behind Sarah Swell

Sarah Greenberg, the designer behind Sarah Swell, creates timeless hand-hewn jewelry in precious metals. Using ancient techniques and drawing inspiration from nature, art, and history, Sarah’s jewelry reflects a refined yet organic sensibility.

The work is crafted in recycled sterling silver and recycled 14k and 18k gold. Most often, you’ll see Sarah using diamonds as her stone of choice. Sarah values them for their symbolism, durability, unmatched sparkle, and unique natural color options. While she does often work with traditional white diamonds, she is known for using rose cuts, salt & pepper diamonds, and unique shapes and colors of natural diamonds.

A childhood and young adult life spent in coastal New England and steeped in the arts led Sarah to study at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. While studying painting, she took a metalsmithing class on a whim and it was love at first flame. Sarah moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to attend jewelry school and promptly fell in love with Northern California.

Sarah has been part of the independent fine jewelry designer movement for a decade. Her work can be found at selective retail partners throughout the United States and directly through our website.
