The Israeli shopping scene is more than just big-name shopping mall chains and a network of manic markets. Though your guidebook will surely direct you towards Mahane Yehuda or the infamous Dizengoff center, what it won’t tell you about is the up-and-coming community of Israeli jewelry designers bursting onto the scene. Scattered around Israel, with a majority along the pedestrian-heavy Dizengoff street (in central Tel Aviv) and Shabazi street (in Neve Tzedek), are a number of innovative artists crafting handmade, customized earrings, rings, bracelet, necklaces and accessories.

So here it is: the inside scoop on where to find the best Israeli jewelry designers—the ones who put the ‘jew’ in jewelry.
