Marla Aaron launched her eponymous collection in 2012 when her combined obsessions with bridges, hardware and jewelry could no longer be ignored. The collection is proudly made and finished by hand in New York City and sold all over the world. What began with one lock is now an entire collection designed to be worn in infinite ways and used as “jewel tools” with individuals’ own collections—to redefine the “precious” in jewelry with individuality. Although recognized for its streamlined, industrial look, the collection is deeply rooted in the personal and emotional jewelry of the Victorian and Georgian
eras and has expanded to incorporate many other elements.
The company's rebellious approach to jewelry led to the December 2017 installation of their first jewelry vending machine at the Brooklyn Museum. The entire collection was on exhibit in 2016 in New York City at the Museum of American Finance in their exhibit, "Gold: Worth its Weight". Marla and her team release new designs regularly on Instagram first with no apparent rhyme or reason.
