AURATE New York: Affordable Fine Jewelry

September 19, 2018


AURATE New York is an affordable fine jewelry brand that focuses on offering fine jewelry at an affordable price-point to make them accessible to everyone. I am someone who loves simplicity within my day-to-day looks and their minimalistic designs add the best lil’ details. From personalized pieces to curated boxes, this is the perfect place to look for when gifting (whether it’s for you or someone special).



I am also all about strong women who believe in their mission to change any part of any industry. AURATE was founded by two millennial women, Sophie Kahn and Bouchra Ezzahraoui, who wanted to make change happen in an industry that was focused primarily on merging high quality with high price-points. Because AURATE is a direct-to-consumer company, these two women have redefined what it means to have high-quality jewelry pieces within our collection. Having pieces that are timeless and effortless no longer means breaking the bank. the pieces are locally sourced and made in New York City — cutting out all unnecessary middle-men and bringing the fruit of their labor to us consumers.



And to put the icing on the cake, AURATE is a brand that continuously tries to give back. They have partnered up with Mastery Charter in New York City to give a book to a child in need for every piece of jewelry purchased. Investing in others besides their own company just proves the type of company that AURATE has risen itself to be. I personally truly admire their humanitarian work — not very many companies are keen on giving back to society with their profits.



The pieces within this brand are perfect for anyone. It is great if you are a young millennial trying to figure out your style — purchasing pieces that regardless of how your style changes, they won’t become irrelevant. For all the women who want to add to their existing collection and want to go towards classic pieces. And even the women who struggle to decide on a style because between all the varieties available, at least one will tug at your heart.

For me, I am drawn more towards the minimalistic and simplistic pieces that I know will be in my collection for years to come. From these extremely versatile earrings that you can wear THREE different ways to this ear cuff that can spice up my look and to the classic initial necklace for when I forget what my name begins with hahaha. These pieces are great on their own or together — no one can be wearing too much gold hehe. I would love to hear about you go-to jewelry brands and if you already have AURATE pieces!

Take a look at their entire collection and I especially recommend these earrings!


A million and one thanks for reading — until my next lil’ thought then!

    I started getting more into fine jewelry last year! My collection is small and I wear all the pieces basically every day haha. I got my pieces mostly from Mejuri, which I’m sure you’ve heard about! I really admire how Aurate gives back 🙂 Small businesses are the best! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
