Unique, Handmade Jewelry and Objets d'Art
At the Museum of Jewelry, we keep the hand-crafted arts alive. every museum creation is an original work of art.
Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted by master artisans from historical designs - shaped, detailed and embellished using the same age-old techniques as have goldsmiths and lapidaries through the ages. No two stones or settings are ever alike, every piece has slight variations and formations.
Historic Inspirations. Modern Style
From the stones which are faceted using the same time-honored techniques of the smiths of old, to the shaping, detailing, and embellishment that lapidaries and goldsmiths have perfected through the ages, each of the historically based designs in our collection is perfected in its own rite.
At the Museum, we believe there is a direct line from the imagination of the original artist, to the hands of our master craftsmen and women, to you-who give these extraordinary visions from the past new life.
Enjoy your journey through some of history's most magnificent jewelry and objets d'art.
