Layering isn’t just for clothing.
The Catbird brand has been around for as long as Williamsburg has been hip. Their focus is on delicate, barely-there pieces that can be worn a multitude of ways. If you stack your fingers with simple bands because you saw the style somewhere, you have Catbird to thank. The brand made wearing multiple rings on your hand not just a trend, but a lasting style choice.
The pieces featured at Catbird (both their in-house creations and those of a slew of indie designers) stun in their simplicity. They are whispers of jewelry. But put a few together in syncopation across your fingers and knuckles or around your neck, and a beautiful, Tetris-like pattern emerges. Rings like The Tiniest (that you can get with stones like a black diamond, pearl, emerald, or ruby) or The Threadbare have become staples of the stack.
They also have an entire Wedding Annex that allows the betrothed to look at wedding bands and engagement rings, without the craziness of their original Bedford Ave storefront. And with styles like the Ritual Solitaire Ring or Odette the Swan becoming the unique and conflict-free way of showing your love, Catbird separates itself from the Kay’s and Jared’s of the world.
The pieces at Catbird are like sunflowers: beautiful and strong on their own, but head-turning when layered together.
