Alluring Moon jewelry store and studio is open for business, designing, handcrafting, and selling unique jewelry, including gold and diamond nose rings, belly rings and earrings.
Founded in 2002 by partners and co-owners Carolyn and Ellie Stutzman, Alluring Moon began as an online business. After exploring much of the country, they "fell in love with New Hope's artistic vibe, friendly people, and the serene beauty of the Delaware River and surrounding countryside."
Carolyn and Ellie decided to moved from Seattle to New Hope and open a jewelry shop. Ellie is Alluring Moon's principle designer, while goldsmiths Carolyn and Kara bring Ellie's designs to life in their workshop to the rear of of the store.
The main focus at Alluring Moon clearly is the fun, high-end selection of body jewelry, but the premium ancient coin pendants and precious gemstone rings are eye-catching and top-quality, as well. Diamonds and gems seem vibrant in creative settings, and all jewelry is handcrafted with nickel-free solid gold or pure platinum, then hand polished for high luster.
Despite the posh feel, folks there seem welcoming and down-to-earth. Alluring Moon is located at 9 W. Bridge St.
