Holiday Vines

Vine Necklaces! And earrings, and bracelets. Long a staple of our line, these handmade ribbons of gems & color have been more popular than ever this season - so much so we've been having a hard time keeping them in stock. Each one is unique, delicately placing color & texture next to each other to create a shimmering whole. If you've been after something really special that's sure to please, look no further!

Holiday Gift Guide: Antique Rings

In continuation of our Holiday Gift Guide, this week we are featuring a couple of our gorgeous antique rings currently at our Northampton store. Either one of these would make the perfect gift for that special someone who loves one-of-kind statement pieces. Above is a 14K yellow gold Victorian Lapis Lazuli ring and below is a 14K yellow gold Art Deco Citrine ring. Happy Shopping! 





Fall Wedding

In an effort to brighten up these cold, dark days it seems like the perfect time to look back on warmer months when love filled the air. Our friend Katy was generous enough to share some pictures from her wedding this past October in upstate New York.  Rebekah worked closely with she & her husband on their rings & helped adorn her with necklace & earrings as well. She looked so beautiful! Most of these pics were shot by the groom's sister, whose work you can see here.

Grand Opening Party This Friday

It's true. We opened in September of 2012 but it was a soft opening as we have spent the past couple months just getting our bearings and settling in. To celebrate the achievement of our new location in Harvard Square we are having a party. A simple affair with wine & cheese this Friday night, Nov. 30th from 5-7. It offers a chance to meet some of our amazing employees who both make & sell the jewelry as well as hang out with the designer herself, Rebekah! Moving on from Friday we'll be offering in-store specials for the remainder of the weekend. We hope you'll come by & say hello.

Antiques!

With the opening of our Cambridge store we have greatly expanded our Antique & Estate jewelry offerings. In addition to our existing collection of vintage engagement rings we've also added many new bracelets, earrings, necklaces & pins. These pieces come & go quickly so we're making an effort to add them to our online Shop so all of our customers can see things as they come in. It's hard to keep up of course & we've just started but check back regularly as we plan to be updating this weekly. As well, if you're looking for anything specific let us know and maybe we can find it for you!

17 Brattle Street Cambridge Mass!



We did it!! We opened our new store at 17 Brattle St in the heart of Harvard Square. After 2 years of planning  and the last few months filled with work, our new store in Cambridge opened on Sunday! We are so excited about the design of the shop. There are details that were a year in the making - a gold leafed wall Christian worked tirelessly on, a crystal chandelier made just for us, hand printed wallpaper from England, antique velvet ring displays and a Victorian glass case - not to mention our fantastic new logo and sign. We are so excited and grateful for this giant step for our business. Our newest styles for Fall and the best selection of antique jewelry we have ever put together are on display. A big thank you to all who helped and particularly to our loyal customers. Our treasured friend and amazing (!) manager Lindsay Graves who has been working around the clock with us to make all this happen is now officially a Bostonian! Come in, say hello & and see our biggest accomplishment yet. My best and happy fall. -Rebekah

Victorian Engraving

During the Victorian Era it was very common for rings to be inscribed on the inside with small sayings or expressions of love.  These rings, known as "posey" rings were often used as symbols of engagement or as wedding bands.  The 22K yellow gold posey ring featured below reads "Time Shall Tell I Love You Well."

Symbolism in Victorian Jewelry

Jewelry from the Victorian Era (1837-1900) contained symbols that expressed a sentiment or meaning that the wearer wanted to convey. Common motifs were flowers, hearts, animals, buckles and knots and each was a symbol for a broader, often sentimental meaning.  The buckle was a symbol of the binding love between the giver and the wearer.  Featured is our buckle ring, cast from an antique Victorian ring.
