Meet Tandem

If you had to pick five words to describe yourself, what would they be? At Tandem Jewelry, we believe that the pieces you wear are as self-expressive as any words could convey.

Sometimes you’re feeling bold, and sometimes reserved.

Sometimes you want to let your one-of-a-kind spirit lead the way,

and other times you just want to “have what she’s having.”
Sometimes you want to wear one special silver piece…
And on those daredevil days, you just want to  layer and layer.

Tandem Jewelry is just the place for those of us who are proud contradictions, and that’s why we design each piece with the individual in mind. Whether it’s our one-of-a-kind pieces, our distinctive in-house designs, or our personally curated selections, our mission isn’t making jewelry for the masses … it’s making fine jewelry for you, and all of the ways you describe yourself.

Meet Diane
Tandem Founder, Diane Samuels

Diane Samuels, founder of Tandem Jewelry, is a proud contradiction who doesn’t believe our choices in life have to be linear. A former commercial real estate broker, current marriage and family therapist, and passionate jewelry designer and entrepreneur, Diane is more interested in following your own path than following the rules.

Diane’s lifelong passion for creating fine jewelry came to fruition when she and her daughter started working “in tandem” designing pieces that they loved. Within no time, the Tandem Jewelry brand was born when the influences of Diane’s life in New England, her Nantucket summers, and her unwavering sense of style came together in designs that caught the attention of stylists, media, retailers, and best of all friends.

Bringing home the bling to someone you love (especially if that someone is YOU!) is expected to continue its reign this year as one of the most searched and purchased Mother’s Day gifts. But sometimes it’s so hard to pick just the right thing for someone you love.

This Mother’s Day, we asked our favorite mother and daughter duo to share their Mother’s Day picks from our Tandem Jewelry collection. Our founder (and designer) Diane Samuels and her daughter Kyle show us their selections, what’s special about them, and why you’ll love them (click on each piece for more information).

Diane’s picks

As founder and primary designer for Tandem Jewelry, Diane believes that there’s a perfect Tandem piece for every mom … no matter what her style may be.

Diane chose her “Diamond Capped White Baroque Pearl on Sterling Silver Necklace” for the mom who likes to blend tradition with style. “This beautiful baroque pearl features pave diamonds on both the cap and the bail, all hanging from a delicate 30-inch silver chain. It’s perfect for any occasion!”

14K Gold Curb Bracelet

14K Gold Curb Chain Bracelet



Classic! Diane picked this 14k curb chain bracelet for the mom who likes a classic look … but also can shake things up a bit wearing it “in TANDEM” with other bracelets she might own.



Kyle’s Picks

Kyle and Diane started designing jewelry together in 2016. These days, Kyle’s busy life as a mother of two children under three years old, wife, and entrepreneur don’t allow much time for jewelry design … but she still enjoys the detail and artistry in the work that Diane has continued.

Kyle’s pics for Mother’s Day reflect her style – that combines fun pieces with detailed craftmanship.

Diamond and gold bee necklace

At 17.9 mm from wing to wing, this little bee is just covered with pave diamonds. Sitting comfortably on a 16-18 inch adjustable gold chain, you’ll find it’s quite the attention getter and a great base for layering




Sterling Silver Bangle with Multi Colored Sapphire Baguettes

Sterling Silver Bangle with Multi Colored Sapphire Baguette




Kyle’s toddler is mesmerized by the bright multi-colored sapphires that adorn our sterling silver bangle. A super-fun piece for busy moms to wear at home, at work, and on special occasions.
