Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Our newest engagement ring is an antique Victorian sapphire and rose cut diamond Cluster. Currently we don't think of Cluster diamond rings or sapphires as being traditional engagement rings but, it was quite common in the Victorian era. Diamonds are a more modern engagement ring stone choice than Sapphires and many say that 'something borrowed something blue' was referring to the sapphire. The Ceylon Sapphire here is surrounded by 15 glittering rose cut diamonds. This style of ring has persisted for over 100 years and is both classic & timeless in every sense. This is a rare beauty of a ring, soon to find it's way to the hand of a very lucky woman...


New Fall Playlist!

Once again we're sharing some of the sounds of the shop. A seasonal playlist of new & old to soundtrack the transition from warm to cool. Hope you enjoy!

Studio

Yesterday while we were busy working on a bunch of new Fall styles to wrap up for photographing before they can head to the stores, our production manager Becky showed me some of the impromptu images she's taken with her phone of 'production-in-progress'. I really loved these & asked her if we could share some of them on the blog - and here they are! Though the finished jewelry looks perfectly put together there is alot of work, time & skill that goes into crafting our lovely adornments.

Fall Grown Up in The Boston Globe

If you happened to be leafing thru the Globe yesterday you may have found us in good company alongside Coach, Rag & Bone and Marc Jacobs (and others) in The Boston Globe's Fall fashion editorial 'Fall Grown Up'. The spread features some really lovely & evocative shots showcasing a mix of touchable textures—tweed, lace, and leather— to define 'the season’s sexy, sophisticated looks.'
