Emily Chelsea Jewelry loves to push the limits and expectations of what an engagement ring is to make a ring that is truly unique to you. Emily Chelsea Jewelry has a store in Philadelphia but works with clients all around the country.

The Beginning

Emily Chelsea Jewelry was born of Emily’s desire to wear unique and quality jewelry that was made with ethically sourced materials, something she struggled to find anywhere else. With a dedication to quality and ethics, Emily started her business on the side, working out of small studios while maintaining her full-time job. Emily worked in the jewelry industry since 2012 and took her business full time in 2015. Emily hopped back and forth from Pennsylvania to California and officially settled back in Philadelphia with our store in the Fishtown neighborhood.


Emily got her BFA in Jewelry, Metals and CAD-CAM at Tyler School of Art. While a student, she always maintained a small art studio in the Fishtown and East Kensington neighborhoods. When choosing a location for the store, there was no question that she wanted to go back to the vibrant and funky Fishtown, a place that already felt like home as a young artist.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an inclusive space to find, or co-create with us, unique and meticulously crafted jewelry, all while creating a positive impact.

We turn tradition on its head, carving the way for self-expression through the artistic realization of wearable art, sourced and crafted with a conscious for the communities which are intertwined in every touchpoint – from the sourcing of precious materials, to the expert design and hand-fabrication performed right in our Fishtown, PA studio.

We are thoughtful in the decisions we make because we believe in creating positive impact, for our clients and for the wider communities we touch.

Our Vision

We seek to create relationships with you to grow from being the local jeweler you designed your rings with, to your go-to jeweler for all important life moments.

Just as people have loyalty to their favorite tattoo artists, we want to be your preferred jewelry artisans – for how we make you feel when you walk through the door or interact with us online, for our design aesthetic, and comfortable and relaxed spaces – whether physical showrooms or our website which functions as a digital boutique – every touchpoint consistently showcases our quality and values.
