JEWELRY

We carry a wide range of carefully selected jewelry, from antique, one of a kind Mexican filigree pieces to modern day designers.

 

AMBER JEWELRY

 

Much of our amber comes from what is now the Baltic Sea.  Many millennia ago, prehistoric coniferous pine trees formed a large forest there. The sap or resin from the trees fossilized over the course of 40-60 million years, producing these beautiful organic gemstones.  Occasionally bits of flora, fauna, and/or insects became trapped within the resin, providing us with a connection to our distant past. Sun worshipers of the Stone Age, early Greeks, and Romans all believed that wearing amber was beneficial to one’s health.

Lotta Djossou Paris explores the designer’s fascination with the natural world through themes of nature, art, and the architecture of Art Deco and Art Nouveau.

Israeli and Roman Glass Jewelry

 

We carry a range of jewelry from Israel including the work of famed designer Ayala Bar and The Roman Glass Company.  Ayala Bar’s handcrafted jewelry is composed of non-precious metals combined with glass beads, mineral gem stones and crystals, and sometimes fabric. The Roman Glass Company works with 2000 year old fragments of Roman glass, unearthed in archaeological excavations in Israel. The beautiful patina on these pieces is created from a chemical interaction with the mineral-rich soil over the course of two millennia.
