Our Story


We are a fine jewelry brand sold by invitation only in homes, private venues, and through a members-only online portal. Without the high mark-ups required in retail, our jewelry is made in New York City from the highest quality 14k gold, sterling silver, diamonds, and gemstones. Through our trunk show business model, we can provide a top quality luxury product that is priced accessible—because no one ever said “I have too much jewelry”!

The Gild was founded by jewelry insiders with over twenty years of combined industry experience. Meghan Folsom and Lauren Abend are the owners and co-founders of The Gild and of Mega Mega Projects, located in New York City. Mega Mega is a fine jewelry press office and wholesale showroom founded in 2012. We have developed valuable media and retailer relationships in the fine jewelry market in several continents and represent some of the greatest talents in the industry.

Since founding Mega Mega, Lauren and Meghan have worked with hundreds of jewelers all over the world to refine their collections and expand their businesses. We are thrilled to bring this jewelry expertise to women outside of our network and to expand our tribe to include passionate jewelry lovers all over the country!

Charitable Giving
At The Gild, we give a portion of proceeds of all our sales to charity. We strive to give back at the local level, and a portion of each hostess or jeweler’s proceeds are donated to the approved charity of their choice. We are happy to partner with your charitable event!
