From its beginnings as a ceramics studio housed in the cheapest Brooklyn storefront Sally Silberberg could find, The Clay Pot has evolved over the past 43 years into one of the most talked-about jewelry stores in New York. Recently named best U.S. retailer for 2012 in the JCK Las Vegas 9th annual Designer Retailer Awards, as well as one of the coolest jewelry stores in country by InDesign magazine, this eclectic, arts-driven boutique remains a family-owned and operated business devoted to supporting artisans and designers. 

“The store has a very long and interesting reinvention story,” says Tara Silberberg, the daughter of founders Sally and Robert Silberberg. “What started as a pottery studio rooted in the American craft scene evolved into a jewelry store after my dad – trying to save the gallery after the stock market crash of the late 80s – posted an ad in the Village Voice for a wedding ring consignment show.” 

The Silberbergs used their connections with other local artisans and designers to pull together a collection of wedding bands. They sold 20 rings. From it's humble beginnings, the ring department (as it's known around the store) has grown by leaps and bounds. Now representing over 200 different artists and designers from all over the country, working in a range of materials and an even broader range of styles. 

Our GIA consultants are here to help you to make an informed decision when choosing an engagement ring or the perfect bands. Our long solid relationships with our designers make almost anything possible. Read less

I am so happy that I bought my wedding band at The Clay Pot! I was focused on getting an ethically sourced ring and that really narrowed down my options, but at The Clay Pot thy have lots to choose from! I ended up choosing a beautiful platinum diamond and saphire band that was completely different from everything I had seen. They were also have a 15% off sale which was AWESOME! Nicest people, amazing selection, and I'm hoping to get future jewelry from them!

My husband bought his wedding band here. He was somewhat picky about his ring, but The Clay Pot had a wide selection of styles and materials most of which are from independent designers. They were patient and helpful in picking out styles my husband might like. When we ordered the ring, it ring arrived on time and to spec.

If you're looking for something a little different from your traditional wedding band, I recommend The Clay Pot.

DO NOT BUY ENGAGEMENT RINGS AT CLAY POT.

I *thought* I had a great experience here. However, even though I made it very clear that the engagement ring was going to be a surprise, The Clay Pot decided to send a hand-addressed letter with a brochure about the ring to my apartment. Because it was hand-addressed I wasn't even able to pretend it was junk mail.

Thanks for spoiling a carefully planned surprise.

If you plan to spend several thousand dollars on an engagement ring DO NOT do it here.

Purchased my wedding band from The Clay Pot - it took me a while to figure out what I wanted, and they were very patient and professional. Love my ring - they have the most unique artisan jewelry. A little pricey for jewelry, but right price for a wedding band.

The ladies at the Clay Pot took very good care of my husband (then fiancé) and I during the process of picking out an engagement ring and then wedding bands! I had my heart set on Megan Thorne rings and they communicated with her directly what I wanted - very helpful! I would recommend their services to anyone looking for unique rings that don't look mass produced and stereotypical!

They were really nice, totally queer friendly, patient and the selection was gorgeous. I am getting my rings re-sized by the actual artist, free of charge. Ferron was warm and helpful.

We purchased both our wedding bands from The Clay Pot. We had never been there before, but heard good things. We first went in in August to try bands on and were told we still had plenty of time to order (for an early Nov wedding). We came back 2 weeks later to place our orders. We were told 4-6 weeks. His band came in in about 3 weeks, my band didn't show up until a week before the wedding. Due to the timing, we were unable to get our bands engraved prior to the ceremony, which was pretty disappointing. I don't think The Clay Pot is a bad place, I would just give yourself much more time than you think you need.

I cannot say enough good things about The Clay Pot. I have lived in the neighborhood where they are located for years and am so happy to say they are my neighborhood jewelry store. We got our engagement and wedding rings here and the service was amazing from start to finish. Never any pressure to buy or upselling, they just watched and listened carefully and showed us options and waited for us to discover the right rings for us. I had a funny thing happen actually where the ring my fiance wanted was sold to someone else. The Clay Pot's staff reassured me that everything happens for a reason and got straight to work with the designer in having new stones sent to the store for me to review. Imagine my surprise when they called me a week later to say the ring had been returned! The intended recipient had accepted the proposal but wanted a different ring! Hooray for all of us, and kudos to the Clay Pot for handling the whole thing beautifully. I will continue to shop there for all of my gift and jewelry needs.

We went through the Clay Pot to get my engagement ring (the designer I liked sells through them) and my husband's wedding band. They have a really amazing selection of independent designers there, and their staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. If you are near NYC and/or want some truly unique jewelry, DEFINITELY check this place out.
