12 Days of Gifts, Day 12!

Happy 24th of December everyone! The gift today is you. Wishing us all peace, love & understanding this holiday season -  at times in short supply so today we're taking a minute to consider these priorities that are at the core of our celebrations. We've had such a great year thanks to you all! We are very grateful. Here's to your happiness, health & prosperity in the New Year! xo

12 Days of Gifts, Day 11

I realize it may appear we're falling behind here...and your right! But, it's only because we've been so busy in the physical world that our virtual efforts have been sidelined. Either way - it's Day 11. Can you believe it? Here we've got something that epitomizes all that we love about antique jewelry - original rose cut diamonds, antique turquoise, 14k white gold with handmade yellow gold earwires - totally one of a kind & they look incredible on.

12 Days of Gifts, Days 8-10

Almost..there. The weekend was action packed! (*so much so postings got delayed). To play catch up here's three days into one: from the top down we start with Onyx for Day 10. A bold & timeless look that pairs so well with silver or gold, a beautiful & safe bet. The hours are winding down toward the year's end and what better way to watch it go than with a hand blown hourglass. For Day 9 try pairing one with black sand with our Onyx teardrop earrings - just an idea (they also come with white sand). For Day 8 some gorgeous milk-glass hand painted cups. These are just two of a bunch of totally unique & beautiful hand painted pieces in our Northampton store - they make for great gifts.

12 Days of Gifts, Day 7

This what our studio looks like this time of year : jewlery everywhere, orders and envelopes strewn across desks - chaos reigns! But it's inspiring. As we come into the final Holiday push don't forget we also offer gift certificates if, for some reason, you can't make it to the store or just can't decide online which piece is the perfect one. We will be accepting orders thru Tuesday of next week & can offer overnight shipping so it arrives by the 24th - just make sure you call or email first before you place your order online so we can confirm we have stock..

12 Days of Gifts, Day 6

Looking for just something unexpected, functional & cool? Here you have it! A vintage pcoketwatch. We've got a few of these left in the shops, the one below is in our Northampton store. All of our watches have been tuned & serviced, this one features intricate detailing throughout & has a designated spot for that special someone's initials to be engraved. We also make fobs for these!

12 Days of Gifts, Day 5

For Day 5 we're simplifying things. Stud earrings - they're the perfect go-to gift. Looking for something for your sister? Your friend? Maybe just yourself. We've got a great selection of totally unique, wearable styles in Gold, Silver, with stones or without - at all price points. These quickly become a wardrobe staple & a treasured gift.

12 Days of Gifts, Day 4

What could be better than a holiday proposal?! And with this ring you could not go wrong. The show-stopper of our Northampton case - this incredible beauty has a center 1.35ct Old European cut diamond circa late 1800's, accented with other small diamonds on the sides. The platinum setting is early Art Deco with a wheat pattern intricately engraved on the sides as well as on the setting, and accents of milgrain throughout the entire piece. The engraving is in exquisite condition with little signs of age and wear. The diamond specs: K color, SI1 clarity, 1.5tcw, Old European Cut. This would make the perfect gift.

12 Days of Gifts, Day 3

For Day 3 of our gift ideas we bring you the vintage clutch. We have a hard time holding onto these and if you've ever stalked them on ebay you'll know why - they're coveted & collectible. The old adage of 'they don't make things like they used to' applies here but, more importantly - this is a great gift because it's totally unique & accessorizes so well - instant style! Below are a couple from our Northampton store & there is a case of them in Cambridge - no two alike.

12 Days of Gifts, Day 2

Cuff Bracelets! They're a simple go-to when you want to articulate your style without trying too hard to make a statement. The vintage beauties below are taken from our Northampton store (and there are many more in Cambridge), stock is ever changing & you won't find them on our website. First up, a special hand engraved wide gold cuff with intricate floral motifs. Next, a classic sterling bubble cuff with gorgeous hinge & detailed engraving that despite it's age looks very contemporary. Lastly, a very cool enamel piece with Asian influence, featuring white over gold that truly 'pops' on the arm.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We are grateful for so many things, most of all being able to do work we love with the support of great customers like you. I just heard a news piece on the amount of businesses now open on Thanksgiving. Not us! As much the pressure of the Holidays can be stressful, it's a time when things can (and should) quiet, when friends & families can come together and if only for a day be entitled to un-plug from routine & obligations. For us retailers, fast on the heels of Thanksgiving comes Black Friday - in recent years more often a debacle of consumption gone awry. There are good deals to be had sure, but the gratefulness from the day before seems overshadowed. Small Business Saturday on the other hand (while admittedly a creation of American Express) actually is a good thing. While it's encouraging you to go out & spend money, it's more importantly asking you to consider where & how you use your resources - a relevant question in this day & age where most 'things' are only a mouse click away. It's easy enough not to consider the impact your hard earned dollars can have on your community but spending it locally isn't just a tagline - it delivers results. It's how unique & valuable services can exist and thrive where you live - simultaneously making your neighborhood a more interesting & satisfying place to call home. Not to go overboard, but as a small business owner we can tell you first hand - it's meaningful! 


* We have a free earring promotion going on in both stores this weekend so stop in & sign up!

New Jewelry

Thursdays tend to be our busiest day of the week here in the studio - it's the day we send all of our orders & new jewelry out to both stores so they'll have things in time for the weekend. I always want to document all the lovely things heading out but, rarely find the time. Below are some quick pics we snapped this week just as a sampling of some of the beautiful creations you'll find in the shop...tomorrow!
