Designer Leehe Segal envisages her fine jewelry collection, Bleecker & Prince, as fusing “the sense of heritage” of New York’s Bleecker Street and the “modern, contemporary” feel of nearby Prince Street.
After years of working with a discerning clientele as a custom jeweler, dividing her time between Tel Aviv and New York, in 2012 Leehe created Bleeker & Prince. Leehe had always felt that edgy often compromises on quality, and heritage brands tend to be a tad stuffy. Bleecker & Prince is the love-child of these 2 conflicting states of mind.
Leehe now pours her creative impulses into her own jewelry line with designs that reflect both a boldness and a delicacy in her unique, striking forms, using all manner of colorful stones, Leehe says that she experiences “pure happiness…when someone chooses to purchase something I designed out of my own vision, my own conception of beauty.”
