Welcome to our fine jewelry page. Below is a selection of pieces that we are currently offering for immediate sale.  We are also displaying trial pieces, deviations of current stock, or one of a kind pieces. People often wait for us to open our booth at fairs to see what new items or one-of-a-kind pieces we have. We often make a piece to the cut of the gem, meaning there is either one or a very limited supply.  If the stock number starts with a SP there is a very limited supply or a one-of-a-kind.  If the stock number starts with a FJ it is a piece we normally carry in stock.

 

Pendants were worn much as they are today. Some signified a relation to something, others were worn merely for decoration. Below is a fine selection of what we offer. A definite need for that later period to show one's nobility and bearing.

We do offer a line of Lady's Jewels. Pictured below is an example of how they were worn. They were worn to show a lady's wealth as well as station, and to bring attention to the lady's....well, let's say endowments.
