About Us

picture of building entranceLeigh Jay & Co. is located in the heart of New York City, two blocks from the Diamond District. Drawing inspiration from his environment, Leigh Jay Nacht has cultivated a brand that references the ageless, exceptional design of Old New York with modern artistry and industry technology. We offer one of the most distinctive, expansive collections of curated vintage and antique engagement rings and bands in the United States. As a third generation jeweler, Leigh Jay Nacht considers quality and standard of his product before all else. It is our express joy to share the history of our jewelry with our customers, for it is they who write the new story of each piece leaving our showroom.

The craftsmen in our workshop are industry veterans, professionals who have dedicated their lives to crafting and manufacturing engagement rings, wedding rings, and fine jewelry to discerning clientele. In addition to our vintage jewelry, we proudly offer our Leigh Jay Collection of vintage inspired engagement and wedding rings, providing masterful replications of actual pieces from the 1800s to the 1950s available in every budget. These replicas are unlike mass-produced "antique-looking” jewelry commonly sold today, as our pieces are made domestically in New York City, and are created with classical techniques to acquire a level of craftsmanship uncommon by modern standards.

We invite you to browse our selection online and in our showroom. We also offer video consultations which van be especially effective when we're collaborating on a bespoke piece.  Along with my wife Sarahjane, we are pleased to answer any questions you may have along the way, as this is a process that deserves time and great consideration. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and welcoming environment to every customer. Choosing an engagement ring or piece of jewelry is a meaningful endeavor that we believe is made more enjoyable by the quality of our product and our sincere love of the industry. Thank you for sharing this special journey with Leigh Jay & Co, and for allowing us to help you bring together forever.
