Touches of History
Taking direct references from the antiques we offer, pieces in this collection feature setting styles and construction techniques developed in the nineteenth century and earlier. We update period details with modern construction methods and design choices for a unique blend of old and new.
This collection stays true to traditional designs, emulating the simplicity and quality of rings made in the first part of the 20th century. We add contemporary touches to update classic settings, creating rings that will be as desirable in 100 years as their predecessors were 100 years ago.
Inspired by the Art Deco movement, this collection borrows the sleek geometry of that era. Our unique approach often uses black enamel and onyx, along with our signature blend of gold. Period-inspired carré cut and baguette-shaped diamonds emphasize clean lines and reference rings from the 1920's.
We are inspired by heavy signet rings from the late 19th century and high-karat ancient Roman rings. This collection embodies our love of how the repetition of touch wears things smooth. Our rings are cold forged in 18-karat and 22-karat gold, dense and rich in color. The finish will soften with time.
Bands are simple hoops that can represent so much. We take the time to create bands worthy of the moment they mark—weddings, anniversaries, and celebrating milestones. Many of our bands use carefully sourced antique stones and details inspired by centuries-old rings.
The modern jewelry trade rarely embraces antique cut stones. Modern stones are easily accessed by the 'four C's', carat, color, clarity, and cut, as there are only these measurable quality characteristics to separate one from another. When we look at antique stones, we see them as individuals. While the gemological report is still critical, it is not the only measure of rarity and, absolutely not beauty. Centuries ago, lapidaries cut stones by different standards, creating a more romantic, subdued sparkle.
