An Exclusive Jewelry Line—Museum of the City of New York X Denise Cox Designs
Fine jewelry designer Denise Cox created an exclusive line of pieces for the Museum inspired by the elegant marble inlay of the rotunda and the award-winning radiance of "Starlight" by Cooper Joseph Studio. View a selection of these works here, and even more in-store. Cox began her career as an art director working for Warner Bros. and Disney. She adapted her graphic skills into creating jewelry and handbags, establishing her own line of accessories. In the tradition of fine jewelry houses, her pieces are crafted with high regard—each mold is handmade, stones are set with care and precision—so that it can be worn for years to come.
Family programs and holiday events are free with Museum admission. Advance registration recommended. Space may be limited for select programs.
