Nick Engel opened the Nick Engel & Co. custom fine jewelry workshop in 2004 after apprenticing with Petaluma Octavia and Alix & Company where he gained his skills in the fine art of jewelry design and restoration. Since then his bespoke luxury designs have expanded to include the Nick Engel Design brand, Shop NED, a line of one-of-a-kind, limited-edition pieces.


Integrating platinum, gold and silver with precious and semi-precious gems, Nick presents a fresh and imaginative blending of the classic and contemporary that appeals to the urban avant-garde customer. Blending ardent style with meticulous beauty, and combining fine craftsmanship, technical skill, and a fresh perspective to create alluring modern jewelry. 


Nick's collection of jewelry designs can be purchased in our San Francisco shop, worldwide from our online shop, at Esqueleto - Oakland and Los Angeles, Love & Luxe - San Francisco, and Gallery of Jewels - Noe Valley. Now featuring a group of selected small studio artists in our Castro showroom. 


When not designing jewelry, Nick can be found using his technical and engineering skills to update his car, enjoying the beautiful Bay Area on his bike, or skiing in Tahoe with his wife and family.
