Alexandra Mor, Founder & Fine Jewelry Designer at ALEXANDRA MOR, was selected as Top Jewelry Designer of the Year for 2018 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the industry.
With over 10 years of professional experience as a fine jeweler, artistic director and thriving entrepreneur, Alexandra has proven herself as an expert in the field. As a dynamic leader, Alexandra has demonstrated success not only with her Haute Couture One-of-a-Kind & Limited Edition Collections and Bespoke service, but also with her sustainable haute couture Capsule Tagua Seed collection. With her latest Tagua Seed collection, Alexandra has been leading the conversation of the fine jewelry industry and inspiring mindful practices and sustainable sourcing.
Alexandra Mor designs for collectors who are focused on building a One-Of-A-Kind fine jewelry collection. Mor’s work is distinguished by the finest diamonds and rare gemstones. Each piece is handcrafted by master artisans and is created with design sensibility found among Place Vendome jewelers. Her pieces have been worn on the red carpet by Oprah, Olivia Palermo, Beyonce, Kate Winslet, Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, Mila Kunis, Demi Moore, and Brooke Shields, among others. Alexandra’s personalized service enables clients to witness the entire process, from preliminary sketching and gem selection to the final unveiling. Experts in the field describe Alexandra’s work as heirlooms and remark that the pieces represent the best of twenty-first century inventiveness, while still paying homage to the great designs of the past.
Alexandra grew up in Israel’s multicultural mélange. From a young age, she was exposed to the concept of handcrafted design by her French couturier mother, a seamstress who tailored her clothes until she was a teen. Alexandra initially pursued a career as a filmmaker, but in 2004, during a jewelry bench class, that she found her passion. Alexandra launched her first collection at Phillips de Pury in New York City in December of 2010. In 2016, after a decade in New York City working on her Signature collection, Alexandra felt she needed to awaken her senses and decided to move to the island of Bali, Indonesia, to enhance her spirit. It was in Bali where Mor set out to create a more meaningful, and eco-conscious practice. She launched an initiative to use tagua seeds, a seed that grows wild in the Amazon, as an alternative to elephant ivory in jewelry designs.
The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Alexandra for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. She is in a class of her own. Her talent, grace and brilliance at what she does, sets the bar very high for others in her industry and she is the whole package in everything we look for in outstanding professionals. We felt she would make an amazing asset to our organization and we are looking forward to meeting her at the gala.”
Throughout her illustrious career Alexandra has received awards, accolades and has been recognized worldwide for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession. In 2013, she was awarded Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award. For 2018, she was selected as Top Jewelry Designer of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals and received Town & Country’s Innovator of the Year for their first annual jewelry awards. For 2019 she is being considered for a feature in TIP (Top Industry Professional ) Magazine and for the Business Innovator of the Year Award by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP).
Looking back, Alexandra attributes her success to her attention to detail, her authenticity, her endless passion for her work and her confidence in liking what she likes. Alexandra says that she has been blessed in doing what she loves and feels this is just the beginning. For the future, she will continue to use her creativity to create unique pieces that are a true reflection of her clients and culture and intends to continue using her voice in the jewelry industry in order to initiate and lead conversations about responsible, sustainable and mindful luxury practices and collections.
