Luxury Lounge: Eli Halili Jewelry
It’s not everyday that you come across a line of handmade jewelry that will give you that world traveled feeling, however the Eli Halili collection definitely has that effect. Unlike your typical shiny silver and gold metals, the Eli Halili line has more of a classic vintage feel to it. The collection offers an interesting combination of refined metals incorporated with precious and semi-precious stones that all have a timeless appeal. His pieces can easily be worn for the next ten years or even passed down from generation to generation.
From a young child growing up in central Israel Eli had a love for exploration. As he grew older he began traveling the world in search of old ancient treasures in local markets from city to city. While Halili’s travels fueled his passion for collecting interesting one of kind pieces, eventually his love of these treasures led him to enroll in the Gemological Institute of America in New York City. After graduating he founded his own line of jewelry under the name “Eli Halili”, and in 2006 he opened a boutique in the heart of Soho at 250 Mott Street, which has since become a fashion staple in the Nolita neighborhood.
Many of Eli Halili’s pieces are unisex and versatile enough to be worn to the office, on the weekends with your favorite pair of jeans, or even to a cocktail party. The collection includes everything from stackable rings and droplet earrings, to hammered gold bangle bracelets and pendant necklaces with inspirational messages inscribed on them. Perhaps the most special thing about this collection is that each piece is one of a kind, which really has a value that can’t be replaced. With so much thought and work put into his pieces, at first glance its not hard to tell this gorgeous collection was inspired by the beauty of Israel.
