About Dana Walden Jewelry

 

Dana & Radika in the Dana Walden Studio on Fifth Avenue

Dana Walden Jewelry is a fine jewelry design studio based in New York City. We create pieces with a focus on ethical design and intricate details. Our vibe is "timeless yet distinctive" and we only use responsibly-sourced gemstones and conflict-free diamonds, set in recycled fine metals. 

RELATED: Our Mission & Company Ethics

Dana & Rad personally source every single gem used in Dana Walden rings and jewelry, guaranteeing diamonds are certified conflict-free from trusted Kimberley Process-compliant suppliers. We also use 100% recycled gold and platinum from existing supplies to the furthest extent possible, to ensure your ring has no new metal mining impact. Our priority is to create a meaningful, well designed, and traceable piece that you can truly feel good about wearing.

Dana Walden Chin and Radika Chin are the husband-and-wife design team behind Dana Walden Jewelry. They've each worked in the fashion and jewelry industries since the early 2000s. Dana has been designing jewelry as a self-taught bench jeweler since 2003, and the duo has been creating together since 2010. Together they create handmade fine jewelry and engagement rings for people who embrace art and visual culture; people who find importance in knowing their ring’s designer, how it was made, and where their jewelry comes from.

At Dana Walden Jewelry, we pride ourselves in designing pieces that go beyond adornment; our engagement rings are elevated to art through proprietary techniques and client-artisan collaboration.

The Dana Walden Experience

Our studio is centrally located on Fifth Avenue in NYC, just a couple of blocks away from the Empire State Building. We are appointment-only to ensure that each client has one-on-one time with the designers in our showroom. Dana & Rad create a personalized and exclusive showroom experience for every client who books an appointment and you will never meet with a sales representative during your Dana Walden experience. The designers meet with every client personally, and Dana & Rad touch every piece that leaves the studio.

When you meet with Dana & Rad (virtually or in person), Dana will chat with you about your ideas and walk you through our environmentally and socially responsible design practices. For custom creations, he'll explain our process, showing you his personal sketches and hand-crafted models along the way. Rad, with her irreverent passion for design, will share details about Dana Walden's signature aesthetic and our breathtaking in-house gem library.
For in-studio visits, rest assured that we have full COVID Precautions and Protocols to ensure your safety as you spend time in our beautiful suite. You can have an insider's look at our collection, viewing many items from the Dana Walden Archives that aren't even listed on our website. With Dana and Rad’s guidance, you’ll work together to find or create the perfect ring, and you’ll be part of the process every step of the way.

Our jewelry has been stocked by Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and other prestigious retailers. By 2009, celebrities including Beyoncé, Rashida Jones, Keri Hilson, Rachel Ray, and Debra Messing were all spotted wearing self-purchased signature pieces by Dana Walden. As much as we enjoyed our retail partnerships, the experience inspired us to create the VIP Showroom Experience that all Dana Walden clients enjoy today.

 

Dana & Rad have designed jewelry for major commercials (including Audi's 2010 campaign starring Justin Timberlake, shown above). Dana Walden designs have also been featured in countless fashion magazine editorials. We've had the honor of collaborating with some of fashion's top style makers, including Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund Award winner Doo-Ri Chung. Dana Walden has also designed and personally made pieces for New York Fashion Week working with Chung on two runway collections in 2004 and 2009.
