Timeless Elegance in Fine Jewelry Since 1976
A Message from Varda
Exactly 50 years ago, I opened my wholesale import jewelry business in an office at 75 South Greeley Avenue in the heart of downtown Chappaqua. Working trade shows and traveling across the country while raising children was challenging to say the least so in 1976, I opened ICD Jewelry as a retail store under my office.
I’ve always been a part of this wonderful community. My children are graduates of the Chappaqua school district and we have loved living in this part of the county for many years. Working in retail in this town has been the experience of a lifetime. I have had the opportunity to meet many interesting people who I have come to treasure.
However there comes a time in your life when you have to make bittersweet decisions. I left my parents and moved to the US when I was 22 years old. My mother is turning 95 years old this year and lives in Israel. COVID gave me time to think and reprioritize. I want to slow down in my work and spend more family time with my mother and grandkids.
COVID certainly brought its challenges but additionally there were many staffing changes for my beloved colleagues. Sarah my manager for the past 25 years relocated to the West Coast. Ralph moved to Montana and Mylene had three babies in the span of three years, so Virginia and I have held down the fort until now. We will continue to both live in town and do custom design work and redesigns but in a different format.
Wells Fargo Bank was sold and our lease for the retail store ends this August. For fifty years I have been collecting and designing a vast collection of jewelry. I hope you will enjoy pieces that you have purchased here as much as I do. Every piece that was sold here was selected for you with pride since 1971. Now while we prepare to close the store, our entire inventory is up to 70% off.
I do not like saying goodbye. So instead I will say l’hitraot, au revoir and arrivederci.
Stay healthy and safe,
