Ernest Hemingway was known for fallen in love with the city that is also home of my dear retailer Jensen Stern Joaillier.
More than just a jewelry store, Jensen Stern is an active social hub, a gallery and a lounge inside The Galleria mall, surrounded by the beautiful Bald Mountains.

What takes to be amongst the 40 top jewelries in the USA? Hard work, creativity and a great sense of style.
This is I W Marks Jewelers, a family-owned business recognized as the largest and finest jeweler in the greater Houston area for over 35 years.
Their creativity also shows on media, like the ad they ran in the 1980’s featuring the famous wrestler Paul Boesch, whose trademark cauliflower ears reflected his years in the wrestling ring, wearing a pair of diamond earrings.
And speaking of style and creativity... yes! - Mary Esses is there!
I dreamed all my life of the perfect store for women. Then I saw Neiman Marcus, and my dream came true.
— Edna Woolman Chase, editor of Vogue (1936), quoted in Commentary 1957
Neiman Marcus stores were born in Dallas, Texas, in 1907. It's well known they have always been an american icon for fashion and luxury. But they are also famous for incredible stories, such as the cookie recipe that become viral after an urban legend, and their Christmas Book with Fantasy Gifts, like a private concert with Elton John in 2005, or a $15,000 edible gingerbread playhouse in 2010.
Neiman Marcus in Austin, Texas, is the one where you can find my jewelry. A long time partner, they deliver a highly personal experience to every customer.
A few months ago I receive a call from one of them only to mention the outstanding service she received there while buying my jewelry.
This is only a sample of Mary Esses jewelry you can find in Austin, Texas.
Thank you, Neiman Marcus, for this incredible partnership!
Labor Day has just gone by, but the color is still white - not any white, but a very special one.
I am launching today Diving Board - Fall Collection: textures and movement in a unique 18k white gold, with gray tone and creamy shine.
Sensual pieces covered in black and “cafe au lait” diamonds.
Minimalist designs resembling waves under the moonlight.
Feel free to contact me to talk about the collection. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
After days of production, yesterday I spent the day inside a studio photographing my new collections.
I was surrounded by an amazing team of professionals who happened to be also my friends. Everyone was really involved and the energy that surrounded that day was great. Music, laughs, beauty all around.
I can't wait to share the final work with you! Meanwhile, check some backstage moments!

Happy Birthday to the First Lady!
Michelle Obama turns 50 today. Here she is wearing Mary Esses Jewelry to the State Arrival Ceremony for the Prime Minister and First Lady of India.
The earrings are from the Oceano Collection, inspired by moonlit strolls on the beach, with the ocean illuminated by the celestial glow of the moon and stars above. The stunning jewels feature sparkling, intense, tangerine-colored oval Madeira citrines surrounded by clusters of diamonds hand-set in 18k white gold.
New Year’s Eve happens to be the year’s most spectacular of evenings, a grand goodbye to one year and a very festive and exciting welcoming of the year to come. One recurring trend present at every New Year’s party is sparkle, and lots of it! From the champagne to the glittery gowns, streamers and fireworks, nothing pairs more perfectly with all the evening’s glitz and glamour than dazzling jewels. I share with you my favorite pieces of 2013 and my very best wishes for more sparkle in the New Year!
Nothing compares to the magical feeling and excitement of Holidays spent in New York City. Although this is my adopted home, I really love the spirit of togetherness here, where each religion is celebrated and welcomed with open arms.
During the holidays, I take my family to visit Rockefeller Center where we can watch the tree lighting and take a spin on the ice. The ornaments on the tree make me wonder if I shouldn’t design and create some for my friends. I have made some wonderful memories there the other year when my dear sister came to visit us from Brazil. Here is a picture of us engaged in the spirit of the holidays in front of the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.
My family also enjoys winter activities like sledding on a hill not far from where we live, and we love to play in the snow for hours and hours.
Food and celebrations are also a big part of our Holiday festivities. We really enjoy the parties and big dinners that add such sweetness to our lives.
I make a special treat for my loved ones this time of year and I am sharing this special family recipe favorite with you:
I also would like to take this opportunity to share my very best wishes for a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year!
As we approach Thanksgiving and the ensuing holiday rush, we want to take the time out to thank our lovely clients.
We feel honored each day to be a part of your lives, milestones and special events.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy and festive holiday!
Trunk Show at Boyds Philadelphia!
I am pleased to announce that my jewelry will be on display at Boyds Philadelphia in collaboration with Stone and Strand!
From Thursday through Saturday, Stone and Strand, the luxury on-line retailer, is having a pop-up shop series at Boyds’ third floor contemporary department. The luxury e-commerce site will showcase a selection of jewelry from their online site, including my latest designs.
I am so excited to share the news that I’ve launched a brand new, sleek and modern mobile website! The website’s design and logo is inspired by my new silver collection and is focused on maintaining a dialogue with my clients and fans. The design of the site is a clean canvas to better showcase my designs. Navigation on the website is easy, with a six-option main menu, and a seven-option collections menu that takes you directly to on-trend, minimalist, modern pages. The spotlight is focused on the jewelry, which stands out against the clean and crisp background. It was important that the jewelry was the star of the site. The site design team also culled data from a marketing research firm which helped them to better understand the Mary Esses client and her lifestyle, aesthetics and personal preferences. The woman who wears Mary Esses Jewelry is a style-conscious, contemporary, career woman who likes a streamlined and clean presentation. Time is a real luxury for her and I wanted something simple and more importantly, mobile compatible, for the woman who is constantly on the go.
The website also strongly emphasizes social media and engages the visitor with a live-stream facebook and twitter feed, as well as a comments section on each page. The press page highlights my latest editorials and news, and my blog page allows me to communicate directly with my audience. There are easily accessible and prominent social icons on every page such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest which take you directly to my social media pages. The launch of the site coincides with the launch of my new well-received silver jewelry collection. It was during work on my new line that I began to see that my old site did not have the same vibe and feel of my latest collection and I wanted something that embodied a more modern, cool, and dynamic quality. In addition, I felt my site needed to be more interactive, because a dialogue with my customers is extremely important to me. Thank you all for your support! Please visit www.maryesses.com to see it for yourself.
I have a confession to make… several months ago, after years of working only in 18k gold, I nearly abandoned plans for my sterling silver and brass line. My good friend Paula (with, apparently, an outstanding gauge of the jewelry market!) saw my sketches, fell in love with the designs, and insisted I follow through. To her—and everyone who loved and ordered the line at the Couture show in Vegas this month—I am so grateful.
I was elated and overwhelmed by buyers’ reception to this new collection at Couture. (the sample of this one bracelet, for example, had three buyers vying to wear it home themselves!)
I’m happy to report that all three are already wearing their new bracelets!
This is just one of the many reasons I returned from Las Vegas so upbeat and excited about the coming season. In the midst of seeing old friends and meeting new at the show, I received word that I was a finalist in the design awards for this Lace Collection bracelet.
For a small designer brand, amid so many talented designers at Couture, just having the distinguished judges include my work among the finalists is a dream come true.
As I regroup post-Vegas, process orders, and look forward to summer, I am so thankful to both my retail partners for their support at the Couture show; and to my friends and family, for their encouragement always.
