Jewelry Designer Martin Katz Unveils Jewel Suite at New York Palace Towers

Acclaimed jewelry designer Martin Katz has partnered with the renowned Palace Hotel as part of its $140 million renovation to combine creative forces and create one of New York’s most imaginative and extraordinary spaces, The Martin Katz Jewel Suite in The Towers at The New York Palace.  The 5,000 plus square foot, three story suite merges romance and abstract elements of nature in a luxurious and luminous setting. 

The three astounding levels include a grand reception foyer, a master suite plus an additional en suite bedroom, living room, dining room, entertainment lounge, and a private roof-top deck and garden with an elevated spa for one-of-a-kind viewing of the skyline.  Katz’s personal touches can be found throughout the space; a stunning 20-foot ‘Waterfall of Diamonds’ chandelier, extraordinary displays of original artwork created by Katz expressly for The Jewel Suite, uniquely designed jeweled china from the artistry and imagination of Katz, exclusive jewelry designs that “live” permanently in the walls, and in spectacular, suspended ‘jewel boxes’, and breathtaking 15-foot windows in the main salon, with its own grand piano.

“I envisioned something ground-breaking and never before been attempted in a luxury hotel suite — a spectacular oasis of rooms united in one sumptuous, over-the-top jeweled fantasy, reflecting my 25 years of designing precious jewels for the most discerning and noteworthy clientele in the world,” says Katz.  “The result is the Martin Katz Jewel Suite, a jewel box of extravagant proportion unlike anything ever seen.  It’s 5,000 square feet, 55 stories above Manhattan and 100% stunning — it will leave guests gasping at the splendor of it all.”

Guests of the Martin Katz Jewel Suite are treated to special amenities including a complimentary, original Martin Katz Diamond Microband Ring, valued at $2,500, a private consultation with Katz himself, champagne, white roses, Michel Richard white chocolate diamond truffles, Maybach house car service, and Maître d’étage service to fulfill guest’s every whim.


Martin Katz, Ltd. was founded in 1988 after Katz himself became known for designing and creating the most coveted jewels in the world.  Renowned for being the first independent jeweler to adorn Hollywood screen stars with magnificent jewels for high-profile events such as the Academy Awards, Martin Katz has since gained an international reputation and following among collectors and connoisseurs worldwide.  The Martin Katz collection features signature contemporary designs of uncompromising quality and unmistakable craftsmanship.  His passion and appreciation for rare, exceptional diamonds and precious stones crafted into designs with a ‘youthful’ attitude are hallmarks of his expertise and sophistication.

Martin Katz jewels are available exclusively at his Beverly Hills salon on Brighton Way and Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.   For more information on Martin Katz, please visit www.martinkatz.com, or follow Martin Katz on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest.
