A Philadelphia Jeweler
Stacey Fay Designs was founded and is run by me, Stacey Fay. We are based in Narberth, Pennsylvania just minutes outside of Philadelphia, PA. All of our handmade jewelry is either made right in Narberth by me or with my team in historic Jewelers' Row in Philadelphia.
From Handmade to Vintage, We Believe Jewelry is Meaningful and Tells Your Story
I believe in the power of storytelling to heal, transform and celebrate. Every piece in our jewelry line has a story, and represents a journey traveled. Whether handcrafted jewelry or genuine vintage and antique jewelry, each piece we offer is an heirloom.
Ethical Jewelry Made in Philadelphia
Our jewelry is handmade by local artisans right in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Our collections are sustainably made with pride and craftsmanship, using recycled metals and ethical stones. Our collection of broaches, rings, bracelets, earrings and remembrance pieces are among the best available.

About Me - Stacey Fay
I'm a Maker...A Mother...A Jewelry Designer...A Curator...A Philanthropist.
“Ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen
I believe that a life well-lived is one where you celebrate the stories that make you unique. We are all so diverse, aren't we? Our jewelry should speak to all our experiences.
- I became a punk-rock vegan at 16.
- I helped sea turtles and birds in Costa Rica in my 20’s.
- I dedicated years to exploring Buddhist meditation.
- I spent a decade at the environmental non-profit GreenFaith.
- I graduated with degrees in ecology and environmental policy - not jewelry!
- I am largely a self-taught jewelry designer and maker, with the help of many mentors along the way.
Growing Up Came With Big Lessons...For Me, Loss and Mourning
This lesson to live life to the fullest has been hard won; throughout my teens and twenties, I experienced one difficult and major life event after another, including the loss of my father at age 12, the “absence” of my mother due to mental illness, and the loss of my sister suddenly and devastatingly.
Through my grief, I spent most of my young adulthood learning to survive, and to focus on the beauty life has to offer even in the most difficult of circumstances. It was at this time that the jewelry dream started, but couldn’t take off until I was at a point of wholeness.
Stacey Fay Designs Was My New Beginning
That point came in 2014, after a year of many changes—loss of my mother, love through marriage, and an awe-inspiring honeymoon to France. It was the wake up call I needed to start my own business, Stacey Fay Designs jewelry.
Each of the chapters in my life—the punk rocker, the nature lover, the survivor and the seeker—come together with Stacey Fay Designs. My offerings symbolize the life experiences that link us all, whether through symbolic wax seal jewelry, meaningful Memoir jewelry, or antique jewelry holding the history of generations.
Philosophy and Mission of the Company
I design and curate jewelry with intention, with a small environmental footprint and heirloom quality. I create pieces that can be handed down through the generations.
I believe our stories are meant to be honored, and it’s my privilege to help tell yours.
