Finally. It's here!
I've been working on this collection for almost a year and am so proud to share it with you today. These little treasures were made with so much love, each a little talisman for long lasting love and dedication.
The diamonds in this collection are antiques, some dating back all the way to 1800. These stones are unlike your mama's diamonds (more like your great-grandmama's). Each is hand-cut and totally unique in the way it reflects light-- my favorites have big, flowery facets and big culets that move and reflect light like magical kaleidoscopes. Each stone is GIA certified and post-consumer, a combo that is very hard to come by and is the mark of the most sustainable options available on the market.
Like all my fine jewelry, everything is made to order. While I am partial to the yummy 14k yellow gold look, these designs also look amazing in white or rose gold... or even palladium or platinum for that matter. We also can work together to find the perfect stone, some of my clients like to view them in advance of setting them into a mounting--I can help select a stone that is a good fit for both budget and aesthetic. The process is rich with opportunities to fine tune the design so that it is a timeless reflection and an heirloom to pass on.
My dear friends Eva Kolenko and Emma Dime helped me usher this collection into the world with a lookbook that has the heart singing. Making jewelry is often a very solitary endeavor; getting opportunities to collaborate and co-create with other people is especially gratifying for me. This was a big heart project <3
Here are some behind the scenes pics of our day together. xoxo
