Born in New York City and raised in South Florida, Taryn Aronson developed an interest in jewelry at an early age. She is third generation in the jewelry business and throughout her life has been involved in the design, manufacture and sales of precious and semi precious stones and unique jewelry items. At the age of 23, Taryn’s natural creative instincts led her to concentrate on jewelry design.
Taryn always displayed a uniquely personal approach to fashion jewellry and was noticed early on for the hand made accessories she designed and crafted for herself and friends. Her keen sense in identifying unusual yet highly desirable styles led her first to assembling collections of vintage fashion jewelry which were primarily sold on Lincoln Road and privately. She built her clientele through personal relationships and referrals. Eventually she began to produce her own unique collections which are highly influenced by art-deco, rock n roll and glamour culture. Her pieces include earrings, bracelets and necklaces all sold under the “Jewels by Dunn” brand. Each unique piece is hand made in South Florida from materials imported from India, Instanbul, Turkey, and Hong Kong. She includes semi precious stones, vermeil and .925 sterling silver accenting, and vintage elements in her unique designs.
Taryn’s attention to detail and her insistence on creating hand made, locally produced items only allow for limited production to meet the needs of a select group of retailers and private sales.
Her pieces are sold in over 50 stores worldwide and while demand for her product has increased, she has maintained the integrity and quality of her line by employing only local artisans, personally trained to produce each hand made item to her exacting standards.
All of her items bear a “DunnWithLove©” emblem, which conveys her passion in producing unique, timeless, collectible jewelry. Her highly anticipated men’s and children’s collections will be available soon at select retailers and through private sales. As always, Taryn remains available to produce one-of-a-kind pieces upon request.
