a green olympics.

The glory that is the Vancouver Winter Olympics continues this week. What makes these Games even more glorious is that this marks the first year in which recycled metals were used to create the Olympic medals. Since our fine jewelry is made with recycled precious metals, this news made me very happy, because ecology makes us all winners.

valentine's day gift guide.

The ring is from the seventynine47 collection by Vicente Agor and is also available in a stunning Swiss blue topaz or glorious peridot shown above. The name of the collection, “seventynine47” is derived from the atomic element numbers for gold and silver. (Remember that from the periodic table in chemistry class?)
