Thanks for a great weekend! Our ring event was a big success. As a thanks here are some beautiful images NY Times photographer Marko Metzinger created while shooting still lifes of jewelry. From the T magazine blog: 'I began thinking about the way light was reflected and refracted through the facets of the cut gems — and particularly about how it lent the illusion of movement to these very inanimate objects'. Metzinger next started exploring the construction of kaleidoscopes, in which loose beads and pieces of glass reflect light through a series of mirrors to make ceaselessly shifting patterns. 'As I began, the jewelry, which was already a work of art itself, transformed into a moving masterpiece that’s mesmerizing to watch as it emerges in an endlessly reflecting pattern'.

Lovely vintage ring & earring pairing just in at our Northampton shop. The ring with a beautiful claw prong setting holding an Opal cabochon with some nice fire. The earrings are simple posts that match the ring perfectly. Opals are ever in demand with us as they hold light within. These will make a great gift for that special someone..or yourself.

Is there a more perfect segueway from a snake bracelet to a sword pin? I think not! This was such a rare piece we had to have it. In it's own tooled leather box this Victorian sword pin is complete with it's own (functional) sheath. Crafted in solid 15 carat gold it features beautifully intricate enamel work along the handle & guard. In incredible original condition, this is a real, miniature sword - complete with a very sharp tip.
