Vela NYC is a curated collection of antique and vintage jewelry. Every piece is thoughtfully selected with an eye for design and craftsmanship. Our timeless selection features a variety spanning the Georgian era to vintage.
We began with a desire to bring a shimmering piece of history to today’s modern customer. Each heirloom ignites the thrill of discovery. The exceptional charm, wearability, and perfect imperfections of our pre-loved jewels from decades and centuries past await a new life—from one jewelry box to another.
Founder and purveyor James Michael Vela is a native Texan based in New York City. He previously worked at Lucky, Vogue and Elle.
