I love the organic, imperfect nature of handmade jewelry. Each of my pieces is one of a kind. I love working with sterling silver, semiprecious stones, and vintage findings. In my day job I work at Anthropologie, Inc. but I spend most of my free time making jewelry and trying to develop my business, Villette Jewelry. I attended Moore College of Art and Design for metalsmithing and graduated from Temple University with a degree in English- Creative Writing. If you are interested in any Villette Jewelry products shown or a custom piece, please email VilletteJewelry@gmail.com.
I have been having such a strong love affair with sapphires lately, that I feel like I have neglected my first true love, emeralds. It was next to impossible to narrow down all the beautiful options of antique emerald rings. My selection was therefore based on emerald being the focal stone and the ability to highlight the beautiful color of this stone. This amazing Edwardian ring (shown above) features an Asscher cut emerald in a filigree setting.
First off, the shape of this Art Deco beauty is outstanding. The mix of platinum and yellow gold tips it over the edge of extraordinary!
I had to feature this Victorian ring! The exceptional beauty of this cushion cut emerald doesn't need a lot of frills in the setting... this amazing stone speaks for itself!
