After collecting estate jewelry for years, I am finally putting my collection in the store. These are 2 examples of pieces I have found: The locket is an Art Nouveau piece from 1910. It is 14k rose gold on a diamond cut 14k rose gold chain (to add a bit of flair!) The second piece is a pair of earrings I made from reclaimed Victorian friendship bracelet tags which were hand engraved with the recipient's name on the front and the friend on the reverse. They are made of sterling, with 18k earwires and a black spinel drop.

Call me a purist, but I love when jewelry is done simply yet still feels so elegant and polished. Heather Guidero's jewelry exhibits just these traits. Her use of bi-metal and brushed finishing keep her jewelry rich and textural in both color and design. Love it!

We have recently added Gintare's jewelry to our shop. Her pieces are finely hand wrought from 18k yellow and white gold with the use of diamonds and unusual stones such as this rare crysocolla piece. We will be hosting a trunk show with all her work on nov.30 and dec. 1 at Gem. Everyone is welcome!
