Since its opening in 1976,
ICD’s inspired designs, affordable prices, and warm atmosphere have attracted a bevy of regular customers, including such notables as Vanessa Williams, Kim Van Gundy, President Bill Clinton, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
ICD founder and owner Varda Singer comes from a family entrenched in the jewelry business. A recipient of the Jeweler of the Year honor from the New York State Jewelers Association, Varda hails from Israel, where her father was a prominent diamond merchant. After serving as a lieutenant in the Israeli army, Varda came to America to attend Columbia University, where she attained a degree in psychology and education. She began her career as a jeweler importing and selling at the wholesale level. The connections she established with international suppliers helped her launch ICD in her hometown of Chappaqua.
Today Varda travels the world in search of unique treasures, designs jewelry lines exclusive to ICD, and creates custom pieces for clients.
Owner and Designer Varda Singer is a gem in her own right. Varda’s designs are unparalleled in beauty, style, and quality. Her work has been enormously requested throughout New York, the country, and internationally. It’s clear why the Varda Singer brand has become one of the hottest styles in New York.
