FrannieB was founded by Meredith Blacker Isacoff, a New York based jewelry designer by passion and trade. Meredith brings to her brand a degree in Marketing from the Smeal College of Business at the Pennsylvania State University, ten years of buying experience from Bloomingdales, JCrew and Gilt Groupe, and a true love for jewelry. She was inspired to create the timeless pieces she’d been unable to find: sophisticated accessories with a touch of edge.
In 2014, Meredith brought her vision to life, creating and curating the FrannieB Fine Jewelry collection, which primarily consists of 14K gold and diamonds. FrannieB was a cheeky nickname created by her close friends and stemmed from her middle name Frances, the name of her great grandmother.
In addition to the made to order and custom pieces offered on the FrannieB website, Meredith loves to collaborate with her customers, working with them to repurpose and give new life to their own pieces with a jewelry makeover. She also loves giving special attention to help her customers as they search for the perfect gift, whether it be marking a birthday, anniversary, new baby or helping with their wedding needs from engagement & wedding bands to bridesmaid gifts.
