CASTLECLIFF, a heritage brand with a century-long legacy, was born in the heart of New York City's costume jewelry era. Today, artist and designer Stephanie Schwallie carries the torch in NYC, dedicated to preserving the brand's tradition and craftsmanship. With a rich background in fashion, including work with Vera Wang, Isaac Mizrahi, and J.Crew, Schwallie's passion for vintage-inspired, sustainably crafted jewelry has reshaped CASTLECLIFF's identity.
Renewing the brand's aesthetic through the lens of ‘70s futurism, every piece is meticulously crafted in NYC using 100% recycled brass, up cycled materials and vintage stones. Inspired by mid-century modernity to artifacts of the Pacific Northwest, CASTLECLIFF reimagines vintage components, turning remnants of a wasteful fashion industry into timeless accessories. Schwallie's mission is clear: to transform this NYC institution into a sustainable and responsible 21st-century costume jewelry brand.
