Noya Fine Jewelry is one of those hidden Westport gems. (Pun intended.)
The Riverside Avenue boutique offers a stunning selection of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets (and much more).
Jewelry is a form of art, of course, and owner Renee Serfaty takes that “artist” role to heart. She and her business partner Natalie Toraty try to bring the worlds of jewelry and art together, by hosting events with local businesses and artists.
“We’re constantly amazed how many of our customers are artists, in one form or another,” Renee says. “And we’re amazed by their talent. Fortunately, our store is the perfect space for displaying art.”
So now — and running through June — Noya offers a monthly local artist series.
The initial exhibit — featuring young Westport artists — runs through February 1. Leah, Leora, Millie and Tessa Chapman; Cristian Montoulieu; Benjamin Serfaty, and Raphael and Roberto Toraty display their photography, ink drawings, sculptures and paintings.
The adult showcase kicks off February 5, featuring artist Daniela Balzano. Future artists include Sarah Chapman, Angelika Buettner and Debra Condren.
Perhaps Noya will have to add “Fine Art” to its “Fine Jewelry & Accessories” name.
(Noya Fine Jewelry & Accessories invites the public to an open house on Friday, February 1 from 4-7 p.m.)
