New York City-based designer Gerard Yosca is a legend among the fashion and jewelry elite. For nearly three decades, the Parson’s School of Design graduate has created innovative, trend-setting collections that inspire year after year. Devoted to American craftsmanship, the self-taught designer has designed jewels for the likes of Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Nicole Miller, and Tracey Reese, but it’s his namesake collections — meticulously handmade in his NYC studio alongside his loyal staff — that show the true breadth of his inspiration. His passion lies in the steadfast belief that the customer should see “the hands of the artist” — a mantra that sets him apart from his jewelry world peers. Yosca is a long-standing member of the CFDA, has sat on their Board of Directors for 12 years, and was honored with a nomination for Accessory Designer of the Year in 2005.
