halloween 1 black mourning jewelry

Halloween makes us want to pull out the blackest, most macabre jewelry in our collection – memento mori, or mourning jewelry. It can be difficult for us in the 21st century to understand why people wore jewelry that was a constant reminder of death.

British Bridal Style Inspired Engagement Ring of the Week

Inspired by Jenny Packham’s stunning 2014 bridal collection, we handpicked this lovely Victorian sapphire and diamond engagement ring of the week with Birmingham English Hallmarks.

Nature jewelry from Doyle & Doyle

Flora and Fauna

Nature has been an inspiration in jewelry design and motifs for centuries.  During the Art Nouveau period nature was the single most important source for artists and designers. They often adapted motifs from the natural world, making it so that nature and modernity came to mean almost the same thing. Now that spring has officially […]
