Meri Lou Jewelry

Meri Lou Jewelry is a contemporary fine jewelry company founded by New York based artist and designer Meri Kohen Gershman. The brand is inspired by Meri’s lived experience in some of the world’s cosmopolitan capitals–Istanbul, Tel Aviv, and NYC. Meri launched her own jewelry line to narrate everyday voices, ambitions, dreams, and realities. She molds timeless 14-kt gold into poetic, elegant pieces that convey a message, an action, a lifestyle. Using the highest quality techniques and materials, each piece is hand-crafted and meant to last a lifetime. The jewelry is designed in New York and manufactured in the world’s oldest shopping mall–The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. We stand for Sustainability, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, principles that drive our decisions every step of the way.
