Charles Krypell was a sculptor before he became an internationally renowned jewelry designer. Looking at his exquisite, perfectly balanced jewelry, it’s clear that one artistic craft flows seamlessly into the other. Charles has created timeless jewelry for the sophisticated collector for three decades. He first realized his calling as a jeweler while attending the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Trained as a sculptor, he enjoyed working in three-dimensional media, including stone. Charles soon realized, however, that it could take 30 years to master the craft of sculpture and become a success. Once he discovered jewelry, he realized the smaller scale allowed him to design timeless pieces immediately.
