Born in The North Shoe of Long Island, New York, Penny Preville designed her first jewelry as a teenager. It was a set of Sterling Silver star earrings. This wasn’t too farfetched for Penny as she grew up in a creative and artistic environment. Her grandmother was an artist and her mother was an interior designer. Jewelry was the form she chose to express herself. Or maybe it was Jewelry that chose her. As a fan of fashion and culture, Penny acknowledges that these are changing and changing fast but she puts value in continuity, of staying true to oneself. And continuity is something she strives to achieve and has found success in. A Penny Preville piece will always speak luxury and femininity. Penny Preville’s style achieves balance between innovation, fashion, elegance and “wearability”. Like the maker, the pieces are a unique balance of influences spanning from family to art history. The creativity in the family and her penchant for art history brings pieces that are truly Penny Preville – truly for sophisticated women.
