New York City
31 December 1969
Jewelry designer Philip Crangi has always drawn inspiration from history; greco-roman artifacts, baroque ironwork, and japanese armor are but a few of the references found in his work. „I would describe my aesthetic as one of contast in material, color and mood“, says Crangi who was trained as a goldsmith at the renowned Rhode Island School of Design.
After graduating from RISD, Philip and his sister and partner, Courtney Crangi, began creating unique objects and jewelry from their New York City studio. He worked for William Lipton, Japanese artist Mariko Mori and sculptor Michele Oka Doner before launching their first jewelry collection in 2001. Since then, Crangi has also designed runway pieces for Phillip Lim, Vera Wang, Shipley & Halmos, Sue Stemp and Jason Wu, among others. Using materials not often associated with traditional jewelry design, their signature collection combines age-old techniques with a unique palette of gold, wrought iron, and steel. Through this process, Philip Crangi crafts impeccably detailed heirloom pieces, creating classics for a new era.
Philips Crangi‘s jewelry can be purchased at Bergdorf Goodman and the most distinguished stores in Japan and Europe. Philip‘s designs are also regularly featured in Vogue, W, Bazaar, In Style and Elle.
Philip Crangi was one of the winners of the 2007 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Award for Best Designer. In 2008 he was nominated for the CFDA Swarowski Award for Accessories Design.
