What We Want You To Know
Marla Aaron launched her eponymous collection in 2013 when her combined obsessions with bridges, hardware and jewelry could no longer be ignored.
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. Her work is collected by a growing group of jewelry aficionados who anxiously await her latest “lock” releases.
In an unusual twist, the brand was first sold direct to consumers and only then was embraced by retailers. Marla’s work is now sold in select stores across the United States, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
We are interested in unorthodox places and spaces to buy jewelry and objects in general. To that end, in December of 2017 we installed our first 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".
Her newest designs are the Earring Series for which the company has filed its first utility patent in 2017.
The #lockyourmom Project, created by Marla, gives single moms sterling silver Baby Heartlocks just for them. To date Marla and her team have given out hundreds of Heartlocks to deserving single moms all over the country.
The collection is proudly made and finished by hand in New York City with the exception of the Enamel Series which is made in England by a 231 year old company still in the same family.
Marla spent nearly 25 years as a global communications executive, serving in senior roles for publishers and advertising agencies in Europe and the United States. She was not very good at it.
She resides in New York City with her husband, two sons, and an unmentionable quantity of pets and sporting equipment. You can also find her posting obsessively on Instagram about jewelry and just about anything that pops into her head.
