Here at the store we love to keep antique baby gifts on hand, such as the Webster Sterling Silver Scalloped Baby Rattle. The George K. Webster Company was founded in North Attleboro, Massachusetts in 1869 and was known for its high level of craftsmanship and design of silver products. This rattle makes a wonderful gift for that special little someone!

The Art Deco Period was a design movement that began in Paris during the roaring 1920s and quickly spread internationally, continuing on into the 1930s. Art Deco jewelry is characterized by bold, modern design and streamlined, angular geometric shapes. Platinum and white gold were commonly used metals. We love Art Deco rings because they are so elegant and timeless. Featured below are two of our favorite rings in the store right now: A platinum engagement ring with two marquis diamonds on either side of the center stone and a stunning 14K white diamond band.

As purveyor's of these objects ourselves, we thought we'd direct you to a piece in today's NY Times around shopping for beautiful Deco finds. As Guy Oliver, a period authority, says - 'Art Deco doesn’t age, because of the lines'. We agree! Deco pieces sit nicely alongside & embellish their more modern counterparts - whether a ring or a martini glass. Read HERE

As many of you may, or may not have, taken notice of - the name Rebekah Brooks has lately been all over the NY Times, endlessly repeated on NPR, and shown up in countless other media outlets ad nauseum. The story of course revolves around British journalist & former newspaper editor Rebekah Brooks with (most unfortunately) the same name & spelling as our dear, beloved jeweler who owns this blog. While we hold this British journalist & her parent organization (News International) in absolute contempt for their despicable behavior we hope that a few of you who seem to be confused about who is who will gain clarity from this post & redirect any vitriolic mails to the applicable recipients : firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You!

At this time of year I love to wear colors that remind me of the ocean- blues, greens, pearls- any thing that makes me feel close to the sea even when I'm not! Featured below are our bundle earrings with peridot and apatite and our simple chain necklace with pearls.

Beginning in the mid to late 19th Century, the locket was one of the most popular items of jewelry. Wearers of lockets would put photos or even locks of hair of loved ones inside. During the Victorian and Edwardian periods, it was very common for lockets to have intricate monogrammed initials of the owner inscribed on the back. Some have a small diamond in the center, with an incised starburst pattern surrounding it, adding a beautiful sparkle. We are so fond of these lockets that we try to keep one on hand at the store at all times!

Paste jewelry is a term used to describe cut leaded glass that is faceted to have the same appearance as gems or precious stones. It can be traced back to 18th Century France, where paste jewelry became very popular, even among royalty. Nowadays paste has become quite the collector's item!

Sometimes I have to keep one of my antique jewelry finds to add to my collection. This ring is so unique and amazing I had to have it. Plus, it is my size! I bought it from one of my European antique dealers. It is a Victorian carved vulcanite piece with a detailed butterfly inlay in 18kt gold. My favorite pieces to collect are always those that are the most timeless. This ring looks modern but is completely unique. I knew there would never be another like it.

Even though it is New England, and it's snowing big fat flakes outside as I write, and the weather has been very unpredictable, I am (almost) positive that spring will be here soon. The shop is starting to gear up for spring by putting bare branches in water to force buds, and revamping all of the displays. The studio is trying to use brighter colors that evoke that wonderful feeling of spring. Things are transforming and we are so glad to be sharing it with all of you! So lets pretend it isn't snowing, and grass is starting to peak out of the ground, and crocuses are starting to bloom, and enjoy this bright color palette!

This heart pendant is a classic part of our jewelry line. It is one of my favorite designs, taken from an Art Nouveau piece that I altered, carved and re-cast. It is solid and at 25" lays on your heart with solid and perfect weight. This one is vermeil and we also make it in sterling silver. It is a perfect gift for your valentine.

The diamond cluster style is one of my very favorites. There are many Georgian, Victorian and Art Deco pieces with rose cut or table cut diamonds. I love the kind with champagne or off-color rough diamonds. In Edwardian jewelry the style was often called a 'Daisy'. For years I have been searching all my
antique dealer's for the perfect ring for me (in my price range of course.) One day I will find it. -Rebekah

I have been cleaning the studio and thinking of beginning again...in this new year. It was a fantastic one for our business. Looking down at the desks, painted with all the work we've done (scratches, burns and shapes of metal) i'm reminded of all that has lead up to now. Thank you for all the amazing work together this year and always:
Christian, Becky, Brie, Lindsay, Sera, Louise, Shira.
