In 2000, she brought a small collection to Barneys New York, where the buyer placed a significant order after their first meeting. One year after joining Barneys, Irene Neuwirth ranked among the store's top selling jewelry lines, a position maintained to this day. Among the other prestigious retail locations that carry the collections are Jeffrey (NY and Atlanta), A'marees (Newport, CA), Capitol (Charlotte), Reinhold (Puerto Rico), and Jamie's (Tennessee).
In 2003, Irene joined forces with finance specialist and former investment banker Tracy Stoll, who brings a wealth of experience to the business, having advised a range of diverse companies from start-ups to Fortune 500 household names. Apart from their shared love of jewelry and fashion, Irene and Tracy have a commitment to outstanding client service, a mainstay of Irene Neuwirth, Inc., which has become synonymous with the brand.

Irene's fundamental inspiration is the ocean- its purity, power and color are all key elements at the origin of her work. Her fascination with intense colors and raw, un-manufactured gem cuts, have become signature trademarks of the line and make each piece a versatile work of art that can be worn in the most casual or elegant of settings.
