Tuareg Silver Cuff Bracelet
Tuareg Silver Cuff Bracelet
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Bracelets

The Tuareg are a nomadic Berber tribe who live in the North African Sahara. They were once known as the Blue People of the Sahara because of the indigo-dyed turbans and veils that would stain their skin. They're known for their engraved silver jewelry; the Tuareg subclass called Inadan means people who work with fire and metal—blacksmiths. Using only simple hand tools and implements that could be easily transported on camels (screwdrivers, nails, safety pins, files, charcoal and handheld bellows) Tuareg craftsmen have plied their trade for centuries.

Mongolian-style Filigree Bracelet
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.

Sterling Silver Claddagh Ring
Sterling Silver Claddagh Ring
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Rings and Pins

The traditional Irish claddagh ring depicts two clasped hands holding a crowned heart, symbols of love, loyalty, and friendship. The design's origins are clouded with mystery, but one of the most popular—and romantic—stories of how it came to be tells of goldsmith Robert Joyce from the village of Claddagh, who was forced into slavery after his ship was captured en route to the West Indies. Joyce's skills supposedly so impressed his master that the man offered him his freedom, his daughter's hand in marriage, and great sums of money if Joyce would stay. Joyce declined all of these temptations and returned to his betrothed in Ireland, where he presented her with this ring.

Italian Renaissance Earrings

At the foot of Mount Vesuvius, just 10 miles south of Naples, lies the fishing town of Torre del Greco. Long known for their carved shell cameos, Torre del Greco jewelers also work with gold and gems, using time-honored techniques such as lost-wax casting. In lost-wax casting, a jeweler carves his or her design in wax, and then forms a mold around the model. When molten metal is poured into the mold, the wax melts away, leaving a perfect reproduction of the original model.


Available styles: Ruby with Pearl, Pearl with Sapphire
