For 16 years, I commuted to the city every day to my Jewelry Buying job for a Fifth Avenue retailer. It was the dream job right out of college. Eventually, juggling the long hours, the commute, being a wife and a mom to my son, who was 4 years old at the time. I felt frustrated like many of us working moms do. In 2014, my company downsized. After processing the shock and taking some time off to be a mom, I started consulting for many of the brands that I had worked with in my previous buying position. This opportunity led me to pursue my life-long dream of opening my own boutique, Ariane’s Jewel Box.
My husband and I are both Westchester natives. Naturally we wanted to raise our family here.We currently reside in Valhalla with our 7 ½ year old son, Max. We love our little community. We enjoy being close to our families, NYC, and all the amazing attractions that Westchester offers. In November 2016, I took the leap and launched Ariane’s Jewel Box.
AJB is a culmination of my favorite things…entertaining, discovering new designers, trends, and my love for jewelry and accessories. I love connecting with the community and bringing people together. Ariane’s Jewel Box is a Pop-Up Jewelry and Accessories Boutique that brings the shop to your home or venue in a Sip & Shop atmosphere.
Think of me as your personal accessories stylist. Creating a unique shopping experience is of the utmost importance. I curate the assortment of jewelry and accessories that I carry by focusing on small, emerging designers. Many of the designers that you will find here at AJB, are companies designed and run by women. I have called upon many of the special relationships I have developed over the years and work closely with each designer. Some of the pieces that I carry have some of my own design input and are exclusive to Ariane’s Jewel Box.
Jewelry and accessories tell a story. Whether it was a necklace given to you by your friend, you wear your child’s zodiac sign, birthstone, or a family heirloom; the important thing is that it is special to you. We want to be part of your story.
