Muzo x NYCJW ‘Here We Are’ Jewels Find a Home at Greenwich St. Jewelers

They will be available exclusively at the retailer through Valentine’s Day 2023.

The jewelry in the collaboration between Muzo and NYC Jewelry Week’s Here We Are initiative will be sold at Greenwich St. Jewelers exclusively from now through Valentine’s Day 2023.
New York—Muzo Emerald Colombia unveiled its second collaboration with NYC Jewelry Week last month and the resulting collection of jewelry has found a home at Manhattan store Greenwich St. Jewelers. 
 
The emerald miner partnered with NYCJW’s Here We Are platform, a strategic initiative designed to address the widespread inequity and lack of representation of minority designers in the jewelry industry. 
 
Each designer involved created a signature piece or capsule collection highlighting Muzo emeralds while staying loyal to their brand ethos. Designers employed different emerald forms in their designs, from faceted stones to cabochons and emerald slices. 
 
Participating designers are: Aman Itomi, L’Enchanteur, Ataumbi Metals, Harlin Jones, Made by Malyia, Embirikos, and Johnny Nelson.
 
The collection ranges in retail price from $1,100 to $82,000. 
 
“We built the ‘Here We Are’ program on the tenets of awareness, education, empowerment, and opportunity, which we see as the pillars of this work. Change takes time, but everyone wins when there is a shared value in the greater purpose,” said NYCJW’s Director of Cultural Diversity and Inclusion Elliot Carlyle. 
 
“I humbly say that we are proud of the legacies we can see being amplified through our partnerships in the last five years. We invite everyone to celebrate with these incredible designers in the spirit of this year’s NYCJW theme: joy. We are thrilled to merge some of the finest black and brown designers in jewelry with the finest emeralds in the world through this collaboration with Muzo.”
 
Gabbi Harvey, head of business development for Muzo, said: “We love to champion independent designers, and we have been incredibly impressed with the work NYCJW has done to support diversity through Here We Are. With emeralds at the forefront of the jewelry industry, it was only natural that we expand the conversation around our gemstones and share the journey and legacy of Muzo Colombian emeralds along the way.” 
 
The collection launched with a private event at Greenwich St. Jewelers in Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood on Nov. 17, during NYCJW. 
 
The jewelry will be available exclusively at the retailer through Valentine’s Day 2023.
