We were delighted to meet the Goldsmith Judith as she set about working on a new piece. The gold is custom-alloyed, hand-fabricated and set with rare gemstones of exceptional vibrancy and color. Since their inception in 1985, the made-in-New York brand has been committed to artisanal craftsmanship.

Tools of the trade

We couldn’t resist picking a few the exceptional pieces for our wish list, including several drawing inspirations from past cultures. Intaglios are created by etching into the surface of the stone, they date back centuries to a practical purpose, imprinting a wax seal to identify the sender and avoid dastardly message tampering. Cameos present a raised relief image carved from one material and also have ancient origins of a more decorative nature, either worn as jewelry or admired as miniature works of art.
