The company was founded in 2004 by designer Nora Kogan. For the first five years we only wholesaled our line, and then in 2009 Nora and her partner, Karen Mancuso, opened their first store in Park Slope, Brooklyn. There you can see the largest assortment of Nora Kogan pieces, with new designs appearing in the cases regularly. Located in the former Conservation Plumbing storefront, our Fifth Avenue store also doubles as our studio. We’re nestled among indie boutiques, quaint restaurants, and resilient neighborhood mainstays all with that unmistakable Brooklyn charm. We also have a large case of Nora Kogan jewelry at the legendary ABC Carpet & Home just north of Union Square in Manhattan.
All of our jewelry is made locally. New York City is rich with generations of skilled craftspeople and we won’t even consider having our jewelry produced anywhere else. We use recycled metals whenever possible and we use conflict-free stones in all of our designs. We strive to be authentic and we do this by maintaining close relationships with everyone involved in producing the Nora Kogan line. Every piece is finished with great detail here in our studio and we hope that the spirit and intent infused in each piece is passed onto the wearer.
