Lauren Kulchinsky Levison
Vice President, Chief Style Officer, Curator
As a fourth-generation jeweler, Lauren admits that jewelry is “in her blood”. She is an award-winning, groundbreaking jewelry retailer and curator for MAYFAIR. Lauren’s professional acting career led her to work behind the camera, where she became a disrupter, serving as the first ever jewelry stylist for TV and film and the first to put fine designer jewelry on hit shows like The Sopranos (HBO). As a passionate taste maker, Lauren has converted consumer focus away from jewelry as a traditional gift item, shifting instead to female self-purchase, empowering women to buy and wear jewelry regularly for themselves.
Lauren is the second female and the youngest ever inductee to the National Jeweler Retailer Hall of Fame (2002). She was awarded the “Key to Italy” in 2003 by the Italian Trade Commission, as well as “Jeweler of the Year”. You can find Lauren front row at fashion weeks worldwide. She has made the Best Dressed list of the NY Times, Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and more. A leading jewelry insider, Lauren regularly sources and nurtures international budding jewelry designers to help bring them to the U.S. market.
Mrs. Kulchinsky Levison also regularly supports charitable initiatives like Huntington Breast Care Action Coalition (named Woman of the Year), Planned Parenthood NY and the National Alliance for Mental Illness New York State (NAMI NY).
Known for having a good eye, Lauren is always on the cusp of discovering new talent. She represents the fourth generation at Mayfair, a family run and family owned business which celebrated its 60th year in 2016.
