Crafted and finished by hand in New York City, Marla Aaron launched her collection in 2013. Inspired by her love for all things bridges, hardware, and jewelry, Marla Aaron started with just one lock and has since grown it into a complete line of stunning pieces designed to be worn together, customized, and collected.
“What began with one lock is now an entire collection designed to be worn in infinite ways and used as “jewel tools” with individuals’ own collections—to redefine the “precious” in jewelry with individuality. Although recognized for its streamlined, industrial look, the collection is deeply rooted in the personal and emotional jewelry of the Victorian and Georgian eras.”

A simple design originally crafted from a hardware carabiner, Marla Aaron has enhanced the inspiration to include multiple shapes, adding gemstones, and playing with size to create necklaces, interlacing bracelets, and more.
These unique looks combine the industrial feel with the delicate and feminine. Adding a touch of color makes each piece unique and the endless combinations full of personal significance.
Marla Aaron also offers customization options such as engraving. When Rachael first purchased her Marla Aaron bracelet (featured in the image above), she had it engraved to add a personal and meaningful touch to the already beautiful piece. The bracelet includes the names and birth dates of her two children engraved on medium locks of rose gold and white gold and yellow gold, her husband’s name and wedding date engraved on the interior of a yellow gold hard hook.
Marla Aaron is more than an incredible artist. A communications executive turned jewelry designer, she is familiar with what it means to be a single mom. Raising her son as a single mom from ages 1-6 years old before meeting her husband showed her the importance of recognizing other women who are raising children on their own. In support of these women, she started the #LockYourMom initiative that gives baby heart locks to single moms with a simple ! engraved in the side to recognize the “the universal powerful, speechless feeling of motherhood. The !!! of motherhood–both how it feels to be a mother and how one feels about their mother.”
