About DANA WALDEN BRIDAL—
For more than a decade, Dana Walden Chin has designed engagement rings for people who embrace art and visual culture, but who also find importance in knowing their ring’s designer. At Dana Walden Bridal, we pride ourselves on designing pieces that go beyond adornment; our engagement rings are elevated to art, through the merging of client and artisan.
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, so as to ensure that each client has a one-on-one experience. Dana will chat with you about your ideas and walk you through our environmentally/socially responsible design practices. You can relax as you try on sparkly rings from our signature and vintage collections. And if you’d prefer a custom creation, Dana will explain our process, showing you his personal sketches and hand-crafted models along the way.
Dana’s wife, Rad, is the company’s Creative Director. She is jokingly called the ‘Aesthetic Police’ by those who know her well, and for good reason -- Rad has an ireverant passion for design and finalizes every sketch and model before it gets produced. She is also responsible for sourcing and curating DWB’s collection of vintage engagement rings, acquired from her network of dealers from across the globe.
Dana and Rad’s work has received accolades from Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Lucky, and New York Magazine's Wedding Guide. In addition to designing jewelry for major commercials and editorials, the duo has had the honor of collaborating with some of fashion's top style makers, including Geren Ford and Doo. Ri.
