Cynthia Gale New York, Company Overview

Legacy Lock™ is a division of Cynthia Gale New York. NYC Jewelry Designer and UD Alumna, Cynthia Gale, has created art-inspired, sterling silver jewelry designed in NYC and produced in Bali, Indonesia for a wide variety of clients since 1991. With philanthropy as a core value, CGNY has partnered with multiple non-profits such as: GROW NYC(The Sustainability Resource For New Yorkers); AEACP(Asian Elephant Art and Conservation Project); and DIFFA(Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids) to support and give back to communities in need. For many years, CGNY maintained a regional sales force of 12 Sales Representatives who sold CGNY jewelry collections nationally, with showrooms in major markets including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago and Atlanta. CGNY produced three major collections per year and participated in approximately 8 trade shows annually including NY NOW, JCK Las Vegas, Accessorie Circuit and the Museum Store Association Show. In addition to traditional wholesale, CGNY also provided our nation’s museums and cultural institutions with product development services, creating bespoke collections based on permanent and visiting art collections for museums such as the MET, The Getty and the Smithsonian. CGNY donated a portion of the proceeds on each museum piece jewelry sale back to the institution it was created for in support of their mission and programs. In 2014, keeping in trend with the industry’s move to online sales, the company launched and entered the B2C arena. In addition to the Cynthia Gale NY jewelry brand, the website also features licensed collections for the Grateful Dead, Barnes Foundation, NY Historical Society, NY Transit Museum(MTA) and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. CGNY also designs and produces ArtMarks, a collection of unique basemetal bookmarks, for Barnes and Noble which are carried in all B & N stores nationally as well as online.
