Auburn Jewelry


Founder: Samantha Auburn Levine
Chappaqua, NY

After graduating from law school in 2013 with a promising job, Samantha Auburn Levine quickly discovered she was burnt out. So she switched gears and started making jewelery. Levine’s line, Auburn Jewelry, soon took off. She now makes sterling silver and gold pieces—including necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets and cufflinks—but her signature is her colorful, customizable enamel jewelry. Levine is focused on giving back, too: She contributes a portion of sales from specific pieces to local charities, including the SPCA of Westchester, NY, and The Mental Health Association of Westchester. For now, she’s decided that being a lawyer can wait. “I’m thrilled that I have enough jewelry work to be
working crazy long hours, because that means I’m doing something right.”
