About

Our Story

Edith & Aster is a fine jeweler specializing in antique, vintage, and estate jewelry. We empower women with confidence and self-expression through unique jewelry pieces. The name “Edith & Aster” was inspired by Victorian novelist and cultural influencer Edith Wharton and her love of landscaping and design. We could imagine nothing sweeter than sitting down for conversation over tea with Edith Wharton in her garden of asters, lilies, and roses.
