About the Designer

New York based designer Danielle Mancinelli began her passion for jewelry design & metal smithing at FIT in 1995. She continues to learn new techniques while working with top jewelrs from around the world.

Danielle's business started in her 20's when she designed bridal pieces for specialty stores and private clients in the 1990's. Since then, she has continued to hone her craft in precious and innovative materials specializing in the fusion of hand hammered metals mixed with modern design. The Gems de Mer line has grown into a complete collection of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings, including custom hand hammered engagement bands for men & women.

Gems de Mer is the culmination of Danielle’s dedication to artisanal craftsmanship and sleek modernism. The collection consists of hand hammered metals (sterling silver, 14k gold and 18k gold) using techniques inspired by ancient Byzantine & Egyptian artisans. All semi precious & precious gems are hand picked by the designer through partnership with top gem and mineral collectors. Danielle has many One of Kind designs & also enjoys working with individuals on Custom Orders.

Gems de Mer 2017 collection takes inspiration from Danielle’s travels throughout Italy, South of France & the beautiful beaches of Montauk, New York.  Her entire jewelry-making process, from sketches to finished product, takes place in her office upstate New York & her studio in NYC.
