Introducing Rubella Jewelry at Urban Alchemist.

Rubella is a virus discovered by German doctors in the eighteenth century. Rubella is also the alias of two Jersey City ladies who create, among many things, romantic and mysterious victorian-inspired statement pieces of jewelry featuring civil war era tintype photographs, antique chandelier crystals, old skeleton keys, bones, unique ornate metal findings and other relics which both conjure up and cherish the past.

Rebecca Shepherd Jewelry Design

Co-founder Rebecca Shepherd's collection is perfect for an easy gift giving solution. You can choose from a wide variety of mixed metal pieces as well hand picked semi-precious stones. She specializes in brides and brides maids jewelry. Rebecca Shepherd was born and raised in the woods of a small town outside Tampa Fla. She relocated to NYC in 1998 and began to develop and refine her line of jewelry. A few years ago, she stumbled upon a piece of labradorite that reminded her of the bottom of the ocean. This began her love affair with semi precious and precious stones. She is self taught and often inspired by making a mistake! Her designs incorporate geometric shapes that are softened and adorned with semi precious stones and metals to add texture. She aims to bridge structure with femininity.
