Oldies but Goodies

One of my favorite things about knowing jewelry so well is being able to look at a beautiful vintage piece and see the uniqueness and value before it is even polished. I love vintage jewelry and think that it is such a valuable piece of history and artistry. So in that light, I wanted to show you all some of our new vintage pieces that I've acquired in the last couple months.

This ring is a vintage rose cut diamond set in a rose gold setting. I love how small and simple it is, and the rosy hue of the gold adds such a warm feeling to the ring.

This band is called the "Hollin Style" and can be found with and without the diamond setting on the top.

This last ring was purchased for one very lucky lady just a week ago. It is a vintage Cluster Diamond ring from the Edwardian period and is set in rose gold. The setting was very low so it sat close to the finger and was a petite size 5. The great thing about buying vintage engagement rings is that the diamonds and gold have already been mined. It is one of the best ways to be "eco-friendly" with a diamond. And the styles are so unique and wonderfully crafted. If the style of the ring is still popular now, 100+ years later, then you know it can stand the test of time.

Always a bridesmaid...

So with wedding season upon us, let's give thanks to all of you wonderful women who are playing the role of bridesmaid with some beautiful handcrafted jewelry from our studio. I have a variety of different styles of inexpensive earrings and necklaces that are beautiful and unique just like our proper line. This is a pair of gold vermeil hoops with garnet stones. So simple, but so elegant.

Some other favorites for gifts to the wedding party are these great small circle earrings. This image shows the earrings with blue topaz and with citrine, but can be made with any colors that would match their dresses.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A story of romance in a whimsical wooded forest setting in the middle of summer... it's all I have been able to think about during these hazy days.

I have always loved intertwining the colors and geometries of nature with my designs, and the fun whimsy of the Shakespearean tale really connects with the pieces that I have been drawn to this summer. Here is a pair of cluster earrings with gold leaves and the colors of a mythical forest.
I have always loved fairy tales, mostly their idyllic setting, with beautiful warm weather and wonderful gigantic trees covered with green leaves.


So although the weather is slightly warmer than the idyllic fairy tales of yore, I cannot help being inspired by the vine covered trees that light up the forest.
