Luxury Jeweler Mish Moves Business To Palm Beach January 17, 2022 (0 comments)


Palm Beach, FL—Mish Fine Jewelry has gone south. Image: Jeweler Mish Tworkowski outside his new flagship boutique in Palm Beach, FL.

In this case, that’s a good thing. Renowned jeweler Mish Tworkowski, the company’s namesake, says this new chapter in his career—moving from New York City to Palm Beach, FL—is a “dream come true.” 

Mish’s newly designed Palm Beach flagship boutique is in a historic Mediterranean-style Art Deco-era building designed in 1924 by legendary architect Addison Mizner, whose work defined much of South Florida’s architectural character. Originally constructed for the city’s first department store, the now-defunct Bonwit Teller, the space features expansive windows overlooking the Phipps Plaza shopping promenade.

It’s a big change for Tworkowski, who with his husband and business partner Joseph Singer (below) have made Palm Beach their permanent home. The couple also maintain residences in New York City and Dutchess County, NY.

“We have always loved Palm Beach with its tropical beauty, dreamy sunsets, and the warm sense of community here, and now it’s home,” he says.

Moving from a specialist at Sotheby’s in New York and London to a creator of luxury jewelry, Tworkowski’s client list reads like a “who’s who” of the society pages and his jewelry is often featured in the pages of such tony publications as Town & Country, Financial Times’ “How to Spend It,” Veranda, Vogue, Luxe, and Robb Report.

The new boutique conveys Tworkowski’s colorful, cheerful style and his love of gardens. In the same tradition that made Lilly Pulitzer’s color-splashed shift dresses an icon of Palm Beach style, the Mish salon bursts with an unexpected mix of colors and patterns, plus flowers and tropical plants throughout. 

“It is a magical and inspiring space that reflects the spirit of Palm Beach,” he says. 

It also inspired him to launch a new collection titled “Why Knot?” inspired by knotted ropes. It’s his first new major collection in more than three years. A piece is shown on display, below.

All of Tworkowski’s jewelry is inspired by nature and his travels. He works in 18k gold, diamond, South Sea pearls, and more unusual materials like peridot, fossilized coral, turquoise, and petrified wood. He’s also passionate about preservation of nature, working with the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach and the New York Botanical Garden where he sits on the board of trustees.

Tworkowski told the Palm Beach Daily News a grand opening celebration of the new flagship, which will benefit the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach, is set to take place this spring. He’s even created a special piece for it: a reissue of his iconic Cabana Charm bracelet reimagined in turquoise instead of its original coral, on an 18k gold chain with diamond accents.

A portion of the bracelet’s sale price will benefit the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach. “This is an incredibly special piece,” Tworkowski told the Palm Beach Daily News. “I thought the vibrancy of the turquoise was just perfect for Palm Beach."
