A famous jewelry designer is opening a store today where her flair for fashion began - Knoxville.


(WBIR-Knoxville) Diana Warner's 1,500 square foot store in the Gallery Shopping Center is opening Tuesday in west Knoxville.

"When planning our expansion beyond New York, and looking to the future of the Diana Warner brand and concept store, my focus has always been to build the very first of what I hope will become many concepts in my own hometown," Warner said in a release.

Warner's flagship store opened in Manhattan in 2011. Today, over 700 stores carry the Knoxville-native's work worldwide.

The new store will showcase the largest selection of Warner's jewelry designs in the country. The shop will also feature accessories, handbags, denim, and shoe product lines. Warner said the merchandise is comprised of her favorite things she's found in her travels over the years.

"This store is a total emersion into the world of Diana Warner: jewelry, clothing, accessories, home decor, specialty items - everything the brand has become since I moved to New York seven years ago," Warner explained.
