Sparkle at Femmegems

Design your own jewelry at Femmegems for a great bridal shower, bachelorette, Girls Night Out, birthday, or baby shower. Femmegems has two locations, one in Chelsea and one in Greenwich, CT. My friends Cassie and Sara hosted a party at Femmegems as part of a bachelorette weekend. They had it at the Chelsea location at 3pm on a Saturday and had an amazing time! Everyone in the group loved it.

At a Femmegems private party, after selecting their materials, guests design and assemble their own pieces with hands-on assistance from the store’s staff.

From their site: No matter what your style, budget or taste – if you’re a creative flop or a designing diva – you will always leave a Femmegems event with some fabulous new jewels!

Femmegems also provides services to personalize your jewelry for any part of your wedding – rehearsal dinner, the big day, bridesmaids, and honeymoon. They will customize for your specific colors, style of dresses, or bouquet working within any budget.


They have two locations, a boutique in Greenwich, CT which is open seven days a week, and a design studio in New York City, which is available for private parties and by appointment only. Please note the NY location is NOT a retail store — you must have a confirmed appointment before your visit, design session or private party.
