Chilean Inca Necklace
Chilean Inca Necklace
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Member Products/Jewelry
In the Andes mountains at elevations of more than 12,000 feet, open trenches accessible only by mule yield gleaming stones, including lapis lazuli, the national stone of Chile. The Inca kingdom flourished in this part of the world, and today jewelers in family-owned shops in Santiago draw on geometric Inca designs to create pieces that blend history and geography into wearable art. The tapered forms of these lapis lazuli, turquoise, jasper, chrysocolla, and pyrite stones, outlined in sterling silver, echo the shape of ancient stone doorways found at Incan ruins.

Mongolian-style Filigree Bracelet
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Bracelets
Mongolian-style filigree is a laborious, delicate jeweler's art whose lineage includes Faberge eggs and the trousseaux of Qing dynasty empresses. Few artisans in China remain who can achieve this level of precise detail, but by adapting these time-honored techniques for modern tastes, craftsmen are able to continue making a living through this ancient art. Here, colorful faceted amethyst and peridot alternate within links of high-gloss enamel and intricate 24-karat gold-vermeil filigree to create an accent fit for a queen. Handmade in China.

Baltic Amber Heart Locket
Baltic Amber Heart Locket
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Necklaces
In 1701, Prussian King Frederick I commissioned an ornate room made from tons of translucent Baltic amber. Later, the intricate panels passed into Russian hands, and Catherine the Great installed them in her summer home in Tsarskoye Selo (now Pushkin). They were looted during the German invasion of Russia in World War II, but disappeared in the aftermath of the war. Their location remains one of the art world's greatest mysteries. This captivating treasure engages the imagination, and you can carry a connection to this intriguing tale with you as a lightweight amber locket. Accented with sterling silver and carved by hand in Poland.
