Planning & Inspiration
Interview with Olivia Michaels and Sunim Choi of Goldpoint Jewelry
Manhattan Avenue in Brooklyn’s neighborhood of Greenpoint has become a shopping/eating/drinking destination in recent years. Any given day, you’ll find locals and tourists alike strolling its sidewalks lined with buzzed-about-restaurants, bars, and specialty shops. The newest, and without a doubt the shiniest addition to the block is Goldpoint Jewelry, a beautiful boutique specializing in modern engagement rings and wedding bands.
Sunim Choi and Olivia Michaels make up the team behind this minority and women-owned business. Collectively, Sunim and Olivia have over 20 years of experience working in the New York jewelry world, holding various positions ranging from bench jeweler and technician to designer (they each had their own fine jewelry lines) to sales and management. After years of talking about collaborating and starting their own store, they finally made the move and opened Goldpoint Jewelry in March.
