Loved Vintage Design is a sustainable jewelry company, based in New York City, that takes vintage designer accessories and repurposes them into new, unique, and chic jewelry. Instead of producing more and adding to the fashion industry’s carbon footprint, Loved Vintage Design recycles or upcycles preexisting materials. Rather than letting unwanted or partly damaged vintage accessories go to waste, Loved Vintage Design uses them to make jewelry that is both trendy and timeless. Loved Vintage Design was founded by Alexandra in the Spring of 2020. Alexandra is a senior at Columbia University in New York City. Alexandra has always had a love for designer items, and seeks to make such chic, vintage items accessible to a broader audience. Her repurposed designer jewelry allows people to wear designer items, without having to spend an exorbitant amount of money. Alexandra’s goal is that her customers look good, while doing good for both the environment, and their bank account!
