Minor Obsessions

Our Major Obsession with Luxe Gold Charms

Minor ObsessionsSoraya Silchenstedt launched Minor Obsessions in September 2010, a jewelry line focusing on miniature charm necklaces, dainty studs, and braided wrap bracelets with gold charms.  She was inspired to start Minor Obsessions because she wanted to create jewels that were precious but carefree.  All Minor Obsessions pieces are made by hand in New York City, such as the bracelets braided by real people to the 10k gold charms.  Take a gander and become obsessed with a piece of jewelry that will suit you best.

Minor ObsessionsOne of Soraya’s favorite pieces and also one of our Editor’s Picks is the Heart and Key Necklace. This adorable necklace has a 10k gold heart and key pendant charm dangling on a 16” chain.  The gold heart charm has a keyhole in its center which allows the key to fit perfectly.  This is a great everyday necklace so you can keep the key and heart close by always.  Soraya designs all pieces on her own with the help of wonderful jewelers in New York to create the actual pieces.  There are also four girls in the showroom who make sure all customers are happy with their orders.

Minor ObsessionsFrom the Minor Obsessions collection, her favorites include the Angel Wing Stud Earrings, the Skull Bracelets and Horse Shoe Sparkle Pendant.  The pendant is a 10k gold horseshoe adorned with 7 tiny sparkling diamonds for fun that will undoubtedly hold your luck while giving off some shine.  Soraya always had a creative side and loves drawing and painting.  She continued down that path as she studied Art and Art History in college.  Minor Obsessions continues to sell existing styles while adding new pieces annually.  They also contribute to charity as they have donated pieces for auctions to the Bailey house and Puppy Bones. 

Minor ObsessionsOur second selection is the Angel Wings Necklace, made of 10k gold featuring two beautifully crafted petite angel wings dangling from a 16” chain.  This dainty necklace is charming with its gold angel wings and will help you take flight each day. Whatever your flight of fancy is, this necklace will help you every step of the way.  In terms of materials, Soraya prefers using 10kt gold because of its pretty color.  She also loves the tiny studs and thin gold chains with touches of diamonds and charms because “this kind of delicate jewelry is sweet and alluring.” 

The style of Minor Obsessions is small and sweet, offering classic symbols like hearts, anchors, horseshoes, and skulls in shiny 10k gold to adorn your neck, lobes, and wrists.  Soraya has done her fair share of traveling as she has gone to Paris, Barbados, and Kyto.  “I think in Japan and Paris they take such attention to the emotion behind what they are giving you and the presentation,” she shares.  In Barbados, she enjoyed it because there was such a fun influence from the island and beach life.  From amongst all of her travels, she finds beautiful colors in each of those places. 

In the next few years, Soraya would like to see women and girls wearing and wishing for Minor Obsessions.  “Whether you buy something for yourself or receive a piece as a gift, I think jewelry is something you can have and treasure forever,” she shares.  Celebrity model Miranda Kerr owns the Peace Charm Necklace.  Her favorite jewelry designer of choice is Cartier.  In her spare time, Soraya loves to watch movies, surf, and knit.  Minor Obsessions is sold at Barneys Co-Op and the Minor Obsessions online store and website minorobsessions.com.
