“Bringing Up Baby” New Silver and Gold Crystal Tiger Evening Bags ($395)

“They’re the perfect compliment to our jewelry,” says the designer of the new bejeweled clutches. A longtime handbag aficionado, Patty Tobin can tell you first hand how “essential” a good handbag is to your wardrobe. “It’s like a piece of jewelry,” says Tobin. “Only you carry it instead.”

Wonderfully colorful and beautifully crafted, these gemmy little bags feature various animal embellishments from peacocks and cheetahs to tigers and turtles. “They’re just awesome,” says Jayne Drost, Director of the Elizabeth Dee Gallery in Chelsea. “I want to wear this at every art event I go to.”

“Big Bird” New Multicolor Crystal Bird Evening Bag ($395)

All of the handbags come with an optional chain attachment that can be easily hooked on to use as a purse strap, or left off if you want to carry it as a clutch. “It’s great to have both options,” says Drost. “I really just want to hold it, but if I need to free up my hands, it’s super easy to just hook the strap on real quick and throw it over your shoulder. It’s still looks great.”

The new evening bags start at $145 for the satin clutches and $395 for the full crystal encrusted clutches. Call 212.414.0174 for more details on our current selection.

Customer Raves & Faves: Our Top 10 Best Sellers at Bloomingdale’s

Patty Tobin jewelry at Bloomingdale's Trunk Show

Patty Tobin wraps up her first circuit of Trunk Shows at Bloomingdale’s in New York and New Jersey this month. The jewelry designer will announce her next series of showcase events for the fall in the coming months, so stay tuned!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already July, and that we’ve officially wrapped up our first full series of Patty Tobin Trunk Show events at Bloomingdale’s! But here we are with 27 exciting days of showcase events under our belt (with more to come this Fall!) After 12 weeks of shows at four different Bloomingdale’s locations including New York City, White Plains, and Hackensack and Short Hills, New Jersey, Patty Tobin and I sat down to take stock of our biggest “show-stoppers” and customer favorites, and to put together our first TOP 10 BESTSELLERS LIST!

Patty Tobin Trunk Show Bloomingdale's White Plains

Patty Tobin and her colorful collection of fine fashion jewelry has been a hit at each of our Trunk Show events at Bloomingdale’s in White Plains. We can’t wait to return for more events this fall!

For those of you who are familiar with our “Fine Fashion” jewelry line, you already know that Patty creates a lot of “one-a-kind” and “few-of-a-kind” pieces in addition to her classic Patty Tobin signature styles, or our “standard bearers,” as she would call them. (For those of you who are checking us out for the first time, many of Patty’s designs are just that: “One-of” or “few-of” a kind pieces (a.k.a. limited edition items) and when they go, they’re gone; some will be replicated, but very seldom duplicated.)

The collection we brought with us to these shows, which kicked off back in March in New York City at Bloomingdale’s highly anticipated and widely promoted “HOT” event, represented a “Perfectly Patty” combination of said “One-ofs” and the designer’s “signature styles”. So, when we sat down to put together our TOP 10 list, we were faced with a bit of a challenge. We wanted to include not only the pieces that had sold the most in number, and were therefore obvious customer favorites, but also the real “show-stoppers” that may only have sold once due to the fact that they were, in fact, “one-of-a-kind” pieces. In the end, this is what we resolved to feature as our TOP 10 “RAVES & FAVES” AT BLOOMINGDALE’S:


customer favorites

#1) NEW Shell Pearl Lariats

Shell Pearl necklaces by Patty Tobin at Bloomingdale's

Patty Tobin’s newest addition to the designer’s collection was a huge hit at every single Bloomingdale’s show! Tobin’s new Shell Pearl Lariat ($395) comes in a variety of colors, including the Butter Yellow (left) and Tahitian Black (right) shown above, plus White, Pink, Platinum and more. Clasps are adjustable, allowing you to fit to just about any neckline, and come in yellow or white 18K vermeil.

 #2) 16MM Shell Pearls

Shell Pearl necklace by Patty Tobin

There’s a reason we often refer to our Shell Pearls as “the little black” dress of the line, and their popularity at our Bloomingdale’s Trunk Shows just goes to show how true that is. At $295, this lovely 18″ shell pearl necklace comes in a variety of colors and suits ages 18 to 80. It is such an easy wear that you’ll find the hardest part is not deciding whether or not to get it, but which of these fabulous color combinations to get it in!

#3) Ladies loved the LAB!

Labradorite necklaces by Patty Tobin

Bloomingdale’s shoppers and staff alike, simply loved our labradorite pieces! Both the briolette torsade (above left, $995) and the baby briolette and rondelle hand-wrapped 18K vermeil chains (above right, $395 each) were huge showstoppers! And good examples of our “one-of” and “few-of-a-kind” pieces — “often replicated, but never duplicated.” Cheers to the ladies that took home these stunning pieces!!

#4) Bali gets ’em every time

Bali sterling necklace, earring and bracelet by Patty Tobin

Simple, understated and elegant, our Bali Sterling and Freshwater Pearl necklace, earring and bracelet set have long been one of our most popular items and Bloomingdale’s was no different. Although many are drawn to our bigger, brighter, more “statement” pieces at first, our Bali set seems to win out every time. The 18″ necklace ($295) makes for a lovely everyday wear that can easily be dressed up for formal occasions. The earring ($135) and bracelet ($195) make for a great addition to just about any woman’s jewelry collection as they are both easy to throw on and go everyday or pair with more pieces for a fuller statement look. Our long 36″ rope ($495) with its versatility going from a long necklace to a short doubled-up one makes it an easy stand alone piece or a great one for layering. We couldn’t keep these items in stock at the shows; every time we got more in, they flew right out again!

#5) + #6) + #7) Crazy for QUARTZ!!

Aqua quartz and clear quartz necklace by Patty Tobin at Bloomingdale's trunk show

“Crazy for Quartz” is right! There’s no better way to say it then that! Bloomingdale’s customers were loving all of the above (from left to right): Aqua Quartz large briolette necklace ($350), Clear Quartz 14MM necklace ($295), and our “mega” quartz statement piece: Aqua Quartz Briolette Torsade ($895).

#9) Fire Agate Ropes fly right out!

Fire agate ropes by Patty Tobin  at bloomingdales

Our colorful Fire Agate Ropes ($450) were a huge hit at these shows!! Their unusual color and texture was so attention getting that they were among the first to sell right out in every color. It’s hard to say which were most popular, but if I had to pick a Top 3, I’d have to say the Orange & White (above left), the Blue & Yellow (above left) and the Black & Teal (not shown).

 #10) Freshwater Pearl & Gemstone Lariats

Patty Tobin freshwater pearl lariats with gemstone and swarovski crystal at bloomingdale's

Our Freshwater Pearl Lariats with their gemstone and Swarovski crystal detail are truly unique pieces that you simply won’t find anywhere else. As versatile as they are lovely, these colorful necklaces can be worn a number of different ways and come in a variety of colors, including pale pink/rose quartz (shown above, left), bronze/citrine, purple/amethyst, white/clear quartz, and many others. All that pearl and gemstone for only $495! Can you say, such a deal?!?!

Many of these styles will soon be available for sale on our website. In the meantime, please direct inquiries and purchase orders to us by phone at 212.414.0174 (or toll-free at 877.772.8891).

Talk About Making A Statement! Patty Tobin Dazzles Them At Bloomingdale’s

On March 14th Patty Tobin and I kicked off our first series of trunk shows at Bloomingdale’s! I’m gonna tell you all about it, but first I just want to say one thing to summarize how it went: WOHOOO!!! Patty and I couldn’t have been happier with our first two weeks of shows!

Patty Tobin Jewelry Bloomingdales Trunk Show

You would not believe how thrifty we were when it came to fitting all of our jewelry in such a tight space, but we got creative and totally made it work! From left to right: Me, Teal Rahmati, Patty Tobin, and Julie Chan.



patty tobin jewelry bloomingdales trunk show

Our colorful collection of Fire Agate gemstone ropes and Freshwater Pearl Lariats were drawing shoppers in like moths to a flame! It was so much fun to see!

Simply put, the jewelry was a smash hit! The colors pulled people right in, and the prices — as usual for Patty Tobin — were so reasonable people couln’t believe it!  It wasn’t just the customers responding to the jewelry either; everyone — from the sales associates on the selling floor to the personal shoppers upstairs to the various makeup artists running back and forth — was loving the collection!

Bloomingdale's 59th street patty tobin show

Bloomingdale's 59th Street flagship store in New York City.

In all honesty, we would have been more than happy with the opportunity to showcase our jewelry at any Bloomingdale’s store, but I have to say, there really was something very special about debuting at the 59th Street flagship store in Manhattan. It may just be my long-time love affair with that particular department store — or maybe it’s because it’s such an amazingly iconic place — but whatever the reason, I have to tell you: Each morning when the loud speakers around the store would sound off at 10AM sharp with a loud siren blast that let everyone know the doors were officially open for business, and Frank Sinatra’s voice came ringing out to “New York, New York,” I felt a truly thrilling sensation.

patty tobin with customer at bloomingdales 59th st

Patty loves to be on the floor interacting with customers. She's always been the face of her company, there to meet and greet, and talk to everyone.

It wasn’t just the excitement, or the nerves for that matter, but an overwhelming sense of pride that bubbled up inside me, filling me with utter confidence. Pride for my amazing aunt, who has worked so hard to get this far. Pride in her amazing jewelry designs and all the wonderful people who have been such dedicated supporters of Patty Tobin; people who know and love the jewelry, appreciate its value, and who recognize Patty’s incredible talent.  Pride that we are still one of the few jewelry companies that actually manufactures our products not just in the U.S., but right here in our home state of New York. And just an overall sense of satisfaction for how hard we’ve worked and how far we’ve come since openning our first Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry boutique in 2009.

With six days of shows at 59th Street and two in Short Hills, NJ, we got to meet so many wonderful people. Patty and I were both loving the opportunity to interact with so many new customers, fellow designers and entrepreneurs, as well as Bloomingdale’s amazing staff. The energy on the selling floor of such a large retailer as Bloomingdale’s is really quite invigorating. Despite being on our feet for 14 hours a day for the better part of those two weeks, as soon as we stepped on the floor, I could see we were both energized — “rearing and ready to go,” as they say!

patty tobin jewelry at bloomingdales

Patty really outdid herself with the jewelry for these shows. The pieces she designed for Bloomingdale’s events included several of my all-time favorite Patty Tobin styles, plus a whole bunch of brand new pieces that were so new, in fact, even I didn’t get a chance to see them all until we were setting up on the first day!

The colors were just magnificent! Sparkling blues, rich purples and bright bursts of orange that were literally stopping people in their tracks. We had plenty of pearls, as always, but we had an especially fabulous collection of stunning “gemmy-gem gems,” as Patty would call them.

More exciting news and updates, plus plenty more photos from our first Trunk Shows in New York City and Short Hills are coming soon, so stay tuned for more at!

Unbeatable Versatility At An Unbeatable Price

November 16, 2012  |  Get The Look, Gift Ideas, New Arrivals

Patty Tobin introduced a fabulous new concept last fall when she first designed a collection of fire agate gemstone bracelets that feature a very strong, but very easy to maneuver magnetic clasp. For those of you who know Patty and her designs, you already know her reputation for attention to detail when it comes to selecting the perfect clasp for each piece and these new bracelets are no exception.

Hematite Bracelets are the Hot New Item at Patty Tobin

This year, Patty has taken it a step further introducing a fabulous new design featuring opaque cube-shaped Hematite gemstones with an egg-shaped white vermeil clasp. The stark contrast between the deep, richness of the gemstones’ charcoal color and the bright “blingy-ness” of the sparkling clasp makes for an absolutely stunning look. But the most exciting part is how easy it is to turn these bracelets into a short or long necklace!

Wear Patty Tobin Hematite Bracelets on Your Wrist or Together as a Necklace!Stack 1, 2, 3 or more as bracelets, or fasten two together to wear as a choker style necklace, or 3 or 4 together to make one long rope! Wear them together, separate, whatever you feel like. There are so many options from just a few bracelets!

Patty Tobin Hematite Bracelets on my wristOur customers in New York have been loving these bracelets! They’ll make for great holiday gifts, and at only $195 each, they won’t break the bank. You can always buy one or two to start, then add more later if you don’t want to splurge all at once. Starting today we’re offering a Special 20% Off Promotion on these bracelets from now through Small Business Saturday, November 24th, so this is a great time to buy and save on yours! (Now only $156! You save $50 on each one you buy!)

These bracelets are currently available at our New York City boutique at 108 West 17th Street in Chelsea and on our website at More details and images are available here.

Dazzling New Arrivals at Patty Tobin Make Wonderful Gifts for the Holidays

October 24, 2012  |  Gift Ideas, New Arrivals, News & Events

New Arrivals at Patty TobinIt’s nearly November, and you know what that means…

It’s time to start thinking about the holidays.

We’re gearing up for the holiday season at Patty Tobin with a number of new and exciting arrivals at our New York City boutique. Many have already gone up on our online store, but many more will be coming over the next few weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out on our blog and Facebook page for announcements of more New Arrivals.

Patty is back at it, doing what she does best: Creating magnificent one-of-a-kind necklaces like this gorgeous bronze and pale pink keshi torsade shown above ($895). Patty has brought in a number of stunning new pearl torsades in rich copper tones, pale pinks, lustrous whites and iridescent peacock shades of freshwater biwa, coin and keshi pearls.

Smoky Topaz Bib Necklace by Patty Tobin

Smoky Topaz Gemstone Bib Necklace by Patty Tobin ($895). Available at 108 W. 17th St. and online at

While we love, love, love our pearls, Patty just wouldn’t be the Patty Tobin you all know without her “gemmy gem gems.” Like this AMAZING new smoky topaz five strand bib necklace ($895). It’s simply incredible with all different shapes, sizes and shades of smoky topaz mixed together in different combinations on each strand. Each stone is faceted so the whole piece shimmers like you wouldn’t believe. Patty used an easy sterling silver extender clasp in the back, so you can bring it up or let it down to suit your neckline, which makes it extra easy to style with different outfits. Trust me when I say, a picture doesn’t do this piece justice.

Not all of our new pieces are big megas like these ones either. We have some lovely new delicate single-strand pearl pieces in 18K vermeil and 14K gold as well as some beautiful gemstone pendant necklaces in blue topaz, rose amethyst and citrine. Personally, I’m in love with our new labradorite single-strand briolette necklace (shown below). The blue fire in these otherwise gray-colored stones is so prevalent, the piece literally shifts between all different shades of blue and grey as you move. Simply stunning without being big or heavy and definitely suitable for everything from the office to the opera.

Labradorite Necklace by Patty Tobin

Faceted labradorite briolette necklace with crystal-set 18K vermeil ball clasp ($695). Available at 108 W. 17th St. and online at

But that’s not all! Back by popular demand are some of our favorite crystal pieces. Customers have been asking for our sparkling crystal stackable bracelets (only $24.95!) and they’re finally here! The bracelets have been hugely popular and a much-requested customer favorite. They make wonderful holiday gifts for female employees or stocking stuffers for your girls, and at $25 bucks, how can you go wrong? Buy one, two, three; mix and match, or stick with one color and stack em — we promise, you’ll be amazed how many compliments you get!

Plus, a great new crystal addition has also just come in. Patty came up with a great new delicate design for a crystal necklace that features hand-knotted crystals in a single-strand with a simple sterling silver extender clasp that allows you to adjust its length and pairs perfectly with our crystal bracelets. The best news?? They’re only $95!! That’s right, a beautiful gift that won’t break the bank and that comes in half a dozen colors to choose from, including champagne, smoky, platinum, amethyst and an opaque black. These bad boys go day to night, sparkling all the way; no fuss, no muss. It’s a no-brainer! I can’t wait to take some pictures to share with our followers, so be sure and stay tuned for some great new photos over the next couple weeks.

Proud to be Made In America. Patty Tobin jewelry is all hand-crafted here in New York State.


Fall Into Fashion with Platinum Style & Patty Tobin

Jewelry designer Patty Tobin drapes model in pearl and onyx ropes.

Patty Tobin loves to layer. Always focused on keeping her pieces versatile, Patty Tobin creates many rope style necklaces like this beautiful white pearl and onyx rope with 18K vermeil detail ($495 each).

“Patty Tobin does not fit the typical mold of the successful jewelry designer that she is,” says Platinum Style in their new Fall 2012 issue profiling the designer and
her stunning collection of semiprecious gemstone and pearl jewelry.

Well, if you ask us, that’s an understatement. There’s not much that is “typical” about Patty Tobin — the woman or the jewelry. She’s a one-of-a kind woman building a one-of-a-kind jewelry empire; one necklace at a time.  After a lifelong career in marketing and business development, Tobin embarked on a creative venture that she didn’t realize at the time would turn out to be the perfect merger of her business sensibilities and a then undiscovered talent for design.

Patty Tobin gemstone and pearl necklaces

Top: Microfaceted Onyx & White Freshwater Pearl Lariat Necklace ($895); 18K Vermeil-set Onyx Earrings ($95). Bottom: Pink & White Biwa and Coin Pearl Torsade by Patty Tobin ($795).

When we first met with Platinum Style‘s team to begin planning for the fall issue, both the stylists and the photographers who came to the boutique were constantly repeating their amazement with Patty’s collection. The only difficulty, they said, was in choosing which of her amazing pieces to use for their “Fall Into Fashion” issue. “Looking at the beautiful jewelry pieces displayed in her boutique, you would expect her to be a seasoned artisan that’s been perfecting her craft for the past 30 years,” says the mag.

Since opening on the inaugural Fashion’s Night Out in September of 2009, Patty Tobin jewelry has been very well received both by new local clientele as well as various members of the media, including, Women’s Day, Esthetique, and Plus Model Magazine. USA Today and CNN have also profiled Patty Tobin and her dramatic career shift for feature stories related to successful career moves.

Patty admits to being a “bit of an oddity by traditional standards,” in her interview with the magazine, but believes she represents a growing group of men and women who have ventured into an entirely new career later in life. In that respect, she says, “I guess I am the poster child for the career set over 50.”

White coin pearl torsade and baroque freshwater pearl earrings by Patty Tobin

White Coin Pearl Torsade ($795) by Patty Tobin and White Baroque Freshwater Pearl Earrings in 18K Vermeil ($110) by Patty Tobin.

A self-admitted “fashion junky,” Tobin says when it comes to her “design process,” she is unlike many other jewelry designers. Her natural sense of style, paired with an eye for aesthetics, and the discerning taste of a third-generation fashion maven, is what guides Tobin’s creativity. Pulling inspiration from everything around her — from the women on the street in New York to old photographs of movie stars and fashion icons to the flowers in the park or the sun setting over the Hudson — Tobin is always absorbing the vibrance of her surrounding environment and looking for different ways to reflect those elements in her jewelry.

Beginning with a search for materials, Tobin says she will snatch up pearls or stones or metal findings that are a “bit funky” whenever she can. “I’m looking for something a little different, a little unusual, but that will still appeal to my customer base.” Whether it’s rough cut ametrines, or faceted bilemon topaz nuggets, or a firey bunch of blue-gray labradorite briolettes — two of the designer’s favorites by the way — Patty is always looking for the best quality semiprecious gemstones and pearls that she can fashion together this way or that for an unexpected twist.

Blue jewelry (accessories) by Patty Tobin

Blue Topaz Acanthus Cocktail Ring ($995) & Blue Topaz Triple-Drop Briolette Earrings ($395).

Using gemstones in rich, vibrant colors and pearls of all different shapes, sizes, and hues, Patty Tobin creates jewelry that is at once classic, but also fashionable. “Understated Elegance,” says Tobin, is her trademark aesthetic. “For me, nothing makes a statement quite like the sophisticated elegance of a traditional design brought fashion forward just enough to make it stand out without being ‘trendy.'”

Patty Tobin shares her genuine enthusiasm for what she does with Platinum Style, explaining that “being able to create these ‘pretty’ things that make people happy when they put it on gives me great pleasure.” We would be forgetting a key factor if we didn’t mention the value of Patty Tobin jewelry and the crucial role her price-points play in the designer’s success.

Not only is Patty Tobin jewelry beautiful, but one of the founding principles of the Patty Tobin brand is affordability. “The fact that we make [our jewelry] affordable is perhaps the most satisfying part of the business,” says Tobin. “You don’t have to make a ‘gabillion’ dollars to afford Patty Tobin fine fashion jewelry.” It is this mixture of quality, beauty and affordability that has been the recipe for success for Patty Tobin — the woman, the business, and, of course, the jewelry.

Citrine & 18K Vermeil Chains by Patty Tobin

Honey colored citrine cabochon gemstones adorn these long 18K Vermeil chains by Patty Tobin ($395 each).

So what does the designer want you take away from this story?

Two things: First, never say never. Patty could never have imagined departing from the consulting world she had always known for nearly thirty years to reinvent herself in her mid-fifties as a jewelry designer in New York City. But, like the designer says, “Who knew?” Anything is possible if you work hard enough and smart enough. Second, please — I say again, please — support small businesses whenever possible.

“Small businesses have always been the backbone of this Country,” Tobin points out at the close of her interview. “As all of us as consumers are looking for ‘value’ in our purchases, so [also] as consumers, should we look to add value to our financial and business systems,” by supporting local small businesses. Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry is manufactured not only in the United States, but in New York State.

All you regular weekend getawayers out there probably know all too well how tricky it can be to pack  for that much-anticipated weekend jaunt to the beach or out to the country. Every trip is the same, you tell yourself “you won’t need much,” but as the clothes and the shoes and the toiletries start to make their way into your oh-so-adorable (but oh-so dinky) Longchamps weekender bag, suddenly you realize you either have to drastically cut back on what you’re bringing or lug two bags with you instead of one.

Packing light is a skill, it’s true, but packing light without sacrificing the integrity of your outfits or your fashion sense? Now, that’s pure talent 😉 We asked some of our “best dressed” customers their tricks of the trade for consolidating one’s tiny tote for a weekend away and found that many of them had the same thing to say as Travel + Leisure magazine:

When traveling this summer, all agree, a dynamite “statement necklace” is a “must pack” item!

And where better to find the perfect statement necklace than Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry? There’s no designer out there to compare with Patty’s undeniable style, bold color selection, and unbeatable price-points. You can travel with ease knowing that you have only one lightweight bag to carry and one key accessory to take each of your outfits to the next level. “From black tie to blue jeans,” as we like to say, pair your piece with a little black dress for a Saturday night party in the Hamptons, or wear it with shorts and a tank top to Sunday brunch and shopping with the girls; no matter where you go, we promise you’ll be getting compliments.
