Linda Levinson’s  love of antiquities, Victorian turquoise snakes and current design trends are the foundations on which her costume jewelry business was formed.   As a third generation jeweler, Linda possesses an innate design sensibility. Her painstaking attention to even the most minute detail is a trait she inherited from her father. Since 1968, her father, Don Levinson has owned Chicago's premier fine Jewelry store, Trabert and Hoeffer Jewels and her late grandfather, Harry Levinson owned Levinson's Jewels in Chicago until his death in 1991.  

For Linda it was always about the jewelry. In August of 1986 after graduating from Tulane University and without a clue as what to do after college Linda  started her business in the basement of her parent's suburban home.  She chose costume jewelry because it was easier and faster to make than fine jewelry- it was also much less costly to produce. She began with small sample line of hair accessories and earrings. After five years of steady growth (and a move into a Chicago studio space) Linda expanded the hair and jewelry lines into jeweled picture frames and other assorted items for the home.

It has been twenty-eight years since her first hair barrette was sold  to a local salon. Since then jewelry, picture frames and hair accessories by Linda Levinson Designs has been sold in the trendiest, coolest and very best speciality stores and boutiques throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Linda's jewelry has been worn by First Ladies of the United States, brides, movie stars, drag queens, prom queens, drama queens, queen bees, wanna b's, runway models, school teachers, baby-sitters, working girls, sorority girls, mothers and teenagers!
