Alexis Bittar is the eponymous name of the jewelry brand founded by 2020 CFDA accessory designer of the year, Alexis Bittar. Best known for hand-carved Lucite bangles, our elegant, yet bold creations have been sought after since their discovery in 1992 by Dawn Mello, Bergdorf Goodman’s then fashion director.
The care that goes into creating every necklace, bracelet, ring, and earring reflects our belief that the pieces are to be viewed as collectible, modern heirlooms that will stand the test of time and trends.
While undeniably luxurious, with many designs feauturing semi-precious stones, we feel our work should be accessible, unique and attainable. Luxury in this case is in the design details, the quality of materials, and ultimately the way the pieces are cherished and worn.
Our brand was born in Brooklyn and that’s where we’re based to this day. Alexis Bittar bought his first block of lucite in 1990 and holed up in his apartment to figure outhow to carve it into the jewelry vision he had. Now over 25 years later, that original vision of handcrafted jewelry is still a core pillar of our brand and reinforced by our factory in Industry City, Brooklyn where all our lucite styles are hand-crafted on site.
