Pascal Lacroix The bangle bracelet, an essential and classic piece for every woman's jewelry wardrobe, met its true master in Pascal Lacroix. Taking the simple shape and its rigid form, Pascal Lacroix fashioned an elegant variation in yellow and white gold accented with diamonds. What fashion-conscious woman could resist such style?

Paul Lantuch Working with the beauty of precious , his work is distinguished by delicately carved details and a special patina (circa 1800 France) that enhances the richness of gold. Paul Lantuch borrows his elegant and powerful motifs from history--the lion’s head, the mask medallion, the delicate cameo rendered in semi-precious stone instead of coral or shell. A Paul Lantuch piece is above all things, dramatic.

Paul Robilotti The influence of classical Roman and Greek architectural forms is evident in the structure of each exquisite item in a Paul Robilotti collection. The purity of line enhances rich detail that is also drawn from the classics. Etched columns, ornate cornices and intricate friezes are expertly represented in delicate balance to age-old geometries. Paul Robilotti creates architectural triumphs on a scale small enough to be worn.

Piranesi The House of Piranesi has revolutionized the world of jewelry by harmonizing the designs of the classical and the contemporary into timeless pieces of fine Italian artwork.

Robin Rotenier Inspired by ancient Egyptian, medieval and renaissance art and historical motifs, his designs are a well-balanced blend of the classical with a modern interpretation. Robin Rotenier is applauded equally for his innovative use of materials, hand finishes and superb craftsmanship.

Scott Keating describes his work as wearable art that fits human nature. His understanding of the body, coupled with the principals of "natural geometry" and the inspiration he derives from the Rocky Mountains have resulted in elegant collections that are truly "in tune" with nature - human or otherwise.

Wendy Brigode Ever since her beginnings in Hollywood as a personal stylist for Linda Ronstadt, Wendy Brigode has been fascinated with color, shape and texture. After applying her talents and keen eye for fresh ideas as an interior decorator for a number of Hollywood notables for 15 years, she focused her design skills and artistic gifts in a distinctive line of jewelry that captured the true sense of the early '90s.

Wendy Tabb Her signature line of wire mesh, delicate chain, gemstones, as well as solid silver and gold, jewelry was launched in 1998 in New York City.

Whitney Boin As a child, Whitney Boin was surrounded by artists and crafts people. After all, his parents operated an Arts & Crafts store in New York, and young Whitney grew up participating in the basement classes in metalworking and other crafts. Understandably, he chose the Rochester Institute of Technology's School for American Craftsmen for his college education.

William Richey Striving for simplicity of design and a clean, pure line, William Richey strips away extraneous elements to arrive at what he considers to be design’s purest forms. One look at the striking shapes, colors and play of light on his work is all it takes to realize that, in essence, the jewelry of William Richey Designs is architecture intended to be worn. 

William Schraft American-designer William Schraft sketched automobiles from the moment he could hold a pencil. Realizing that this industry required a team effort and creativity, and expression was most often limited to one section of the whole product, William Schraft sought other areas of endeavor. Since his father was in the jewelry business, his search ended close to home. Jewelry design satisfied all his creative needs, suited his individuality, and satisfied his desire to control the production of an entire product.
