Your Source for Unique American-Designed Jewelry
Silver Ribbon was established in 1974 in a tiny retail space on Main Street in Westport, CT. It started out as a gift shop that sold various accessories and jewelry. Storeowner Lida Ghiorzi realized that, in her own words, “People were really digging the jewelry I was carrying and I started getting daily requests for more pieces.”
To meet the demand and “keep things fresh, fun, and fabulous,” she focused on selling jewelry made by American designers. This was how the gallery of affordable American-made jewelry that residents of Westport knew and loved came to life.
Decades of Success
Almost 40 years and 3 relocations later, the store continues to thrive. “You can get a silver heart necklace anywhere,“ Lida says, “but the reason people come to Silver Ribbon is because they know our silver heart necklaces will have a little twist and be a bit more interesting than the rest of what’s out there—and for a great price!”
Silver heart necklaces are only some of the store’s many offers. New pieces come in every week at its newest location in 1240 Post Rd. East, Westport, CT. Lida and her staff are always on the lookout for new jewelry designers.
“We’re really looking forward to the years to come,” she says. “I’ve had customers come in and say to me, ‘You know, I bought a ring from you for my first girlfriend when I was 14, then I bought an engagement ring from you several years later…now I’m here to buy my wife an anniversary gift!’ I love hearing stories like that.”
Lida says “I love this town and I’m so grateful for all of our customers’ support throughout the years.” From all of us at Silver Ribbon, here’s to another 40 years of fabulous jewelry!
