Haylee Tallarida

Owner – talulah.cooper


Haylee Tallarida has a deep admiration for jewelry. “It’s more like an obsession,” says the Boston native. After studying sculpture at Boston University, Haylee decided to take the leap three years ago and opened her own business in Providence. “As a huge jewelry collector myself, opening my own jewelry boutique just made sense,” she explains.

Just a few steps off of Wickenden Street, talulah.cooper offers a curated selection of handcrafted jewelry made by local and international artisans. Inspired by her travels and her love for vintage pieces with a modern feel, the diverse selection offers a range of designs at different price points. “I love to work with customers and help them find the jewelry that feels right for them,” she says. Another “perk “of the job, as she describes it, is to help procure or design the perfect engagement ring. Haylee works alongside the buyer, hunting down the perfect diamond or stone or redesigning an existing piece of jewelry. “Being a part of a couple’s love story is just magical,” she says. “I feel so privileged to be sharing my passion with people who are also passionate about jewelry.”
