Intaglios have long been a jewelry staple.

Dating back as far as 500 B.C., ancient Roman and Greek intaglios were carved from hard stones and used as wax seals. During the Renaissance, glass intaglios became extremely popular in both France and Italy--their craftsmanship as ornate as their ancient stone predecessors.

Since the Neo-Classical movement of the late 18th century, intaglios have been worn and loved as symbols of status, wealth and classical virtue.

I take great care to find special antique jewelry pieces that are of exceptional quality. It’s my passion to revive their beauty and craftsmanship in a relevant, chic way.

Given their age, they will show gentle signs of their history. And they deserve to be treated with care and love. Each piece is unique and tells its own story, and unless noted, cannot be altered.

Please reach out with any questions. I’m always happy to hear from you!
