Ella Gafter


Ella Gafter is a renowned jewelry designer whose exquisite creations have been showcased in some of the most prestigious museums and galleries around the world. Born in Israel, Gafter began her career as a goldsmith and diamond setter before branching out on her own to create her unique pieces of wearable art.

Gafter’s signature style combines traditional techniques with modern aesthetics, resulting in jewelry that is both timeless and contemporary. Her use of unexpected materials such as meteorite, titanium, and rubber, paired with precious gems like diamonds and sapphires, creates pieces that are unlike anything else in the world of jewelry design.

One of Gafter’s most iconic pieces is the “Platinum Nights” necklace, which features more than 1,000 diamonds set in a delicate, lacy pattern. The necklace took over 1,500 hours of handwork to create and has been exhibited at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

Gafter’s work has also been featured in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, and the Israeli Museum in Jerusalem, among others.

In addition to her success as a jewelry designer, Gafter is also a trailblazer in her field. She became the first woman to earn the title of “art jeweler” from the Israeli Ministry of Trade and Industry, and in 2019, she was elected as a member of the prestigious art organization, Círculo Creativo in Mexico.

Gafter’s dedication to her craft is evident in every piece she creates, and her passion for pushing the boundaries of jewelry design has earned her a place among the most accomplished and respected artists in her field.
