Grounded in timeless craftmanship, and elevated by refined design.
Since 2002, artist and master craftsman Marc Bernstein has committed his talents to designing an ever-evolving collection of urban-chic jewelry and leather goods suited for the cultural sophisticates and urban tastemakers in us all.
While Marc Bernstein New York produces highly individualized pieces, each collection is anchored by Marc’s supple, luxurious leathers and custom hardware colors, including Blond Gold and Manhattan Matte Black.
Drawing artistic inspiration from natural elements and antiquities from communities across the globe, Marc Bernstein has built an unshakeable reputation for designing pieces that cross borders, surpass time periods, and transcend trends.
Accessories are more than just objects, they are extensions of our purest selves. The accessories we choose to live our lives in open us up to the world; they serve as our armors, our first points of contact and our olive branches. At Marc Bernstein New York, we believe everyone has a story and every accessory can help them tell it.
Through a distinctively fluid approach to design, our pieces seamlessly integrate into every facet of your lifestyle. From day to night, city to city, work to play, our collections embolden you to share your story one piece at a time.
Our collections will continue to craft thoughtful, detailed designs that will inspire you to celebrate your passions and express your voice. Designs that go beyond the product itself and create a bond between those who wear it.
Marc Bernstein New York was officially created in 2002. Then an assistant to elite photographers (including Patrick Demarchelier) Marc began to teach himself the art of leather craft when he struggled to find accessories that reflected his personal style and met his high quality standards. After producing his first leather cuff bracelet, word soon got out that Marc Bernstein was fashioning a new design revolution from New York’s own Lower East Side.
Over the next 17 years Marc continued to expand his collection to include belts, handbags, necklaces, keychains, and wallets. As Marc’s artisanship has deepened, so too has his desire to infuse multiple perspectives and stories into his work.
Marc Bernstein New York collections have been featured in Vogue and sold in Barneys CO-OP, Selfridges, and Harvey Nichols. When he’s not creating in his New York studio, Marc travels the world, challenging himself to infuse new elements and cultural traditions into his work.
At Marc Bernstein New York, we are dedicated to crafting thoughtful accessories that celebrate our customers’ voices and values.
We want our community to know that we strive to increasingly incorporate eco-friendly practices into our collection productions.

At Marc Bernstein New York, we pride ourselves in our superior craftsmanship, which we do in our in-house, Lower East Side, New York design studio. Yet, over time, some parts may eventually wear down, or break.
We encourage you to contact us at warranty@marcbernsteinnewyork to evaluate if we may repair or refurbish your accessory at a nominal fee to cover replacement parts, labor and return shipping. In your email, please include a picture.
