From cobbler to jeweler, Moritz Glik has made his presence in fashion known. By starting out his career as a shoe designer in his native Brazil, his creations quickly became a sought-after commodity among shoe lovers. While in his Brazilian shop, he became captivated by the jewelry workshop next door and came to realize his true passion – jewelry design. Since arriving in New York City in 1991, Moritz Glik has built an assortment of precious pieces both elegant and mysterious with a dash of contemporary mixed in.

Glik’s aesthetic channels a strong architectural structure rich in influences of his travels around the globe, art, and antique jewelry. Meticulously handcrafted and often one-of-a-kind exclusives, Glik’s signature designs have fluid settings creating the illusion that the stones are floating. Nominated in 2009 and 2010 for Best Diamond Piece at the Couture Show in Las Vegas, Glik won the coveted award in 2011 for his spectacular “Kaleidoscope” collection which consists of floating diamonds enclosed in impressive double white sapphires.

With his collection sold in New York City and multiple locations around the U.S. (including Marissa Collections) as well as being featured in numerous magazines such as W, InStyle, New York Magazine, and Black Book, jewelry fanatics continuously swoon. Celebrities like Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, and Penelope Cruz aren’t shy about wearing Glik’s amazing accessories to award shows, interviews, or premieres. His work has an ever-lasting, timeless quality ideal for present day or decades from now. Layered among others or worn as a solitary piece, Glik’s adornments are tried and true works of art suitable for any blank canvas.
