ELIZABETH LOCKE:

“Elizabeth Locke draws on a lifelong fascination with the antique jewelry of the Etruscans, Greeks and Romans as she creates her own neo-classical hand-made 19k gold jewelry. She selects every stone and designs every piece herself.”*  Today, we have three of her special and coveted pieces:

ELIZABETH LOCKE 19K 16mm Hoop Earrings with Pink and Blue Intaglio Glass Enhancers  – SOLD- 

A magical pair of earrings, and interchangeable, these 19k hammered yellow gold 16mm huggie hoops can be worn on their own or enhanced with the most brilliant pink or deep navy intaglio glass drops.  The glass is carved for the bird-lover with two cranes in each ear.  The rose pink intaglio glass has three small pink sapphires trimmed in Locke’s signature granulation.  The dark blue glass is trimmed with iolite stones.  The hoops on their own retail for $1,425, and the enhancers are $1,950 each.  This set totals $5,325 in retail value, but our price is $3,000.  SOLD

ELIZABETH LOCKE 19K and Smokey Quartz Intaglio Ring, Size 5.75

For the bird-lover, this gorgeous smokey quartz intaglio-carved ring is unique to Elizabeth’s designs, as this piece is a carved stone, instead of the typical glass.  The 20mm quartz cabochon is carved with an eagle carrying an olive branch; a symbol of both power and peace.  The stone is set in a bezel of 19k hammered yellow gold with four granulated “Triads” even spaced throughout the frame.  With box, size 5.75.  This regal ring originally retailed for $4,625.  Our price is $2,500.

Sumptuous and deliciously juicy, this dark aqua-colored “London Blue Topaz” is perfectly square, faceted, and raised from its 18k yellow gold setting.  All edges are curved, yet maintain an architectural quality, and the blue stone has a “tiger’s eye” effect as the light moves from top to bottom.  The stone measures 13 x 13 mm and is considered their medium size in the “Nudo Collection”.  The ring fits a size 6.  Originally retailing $3,250, our price is $1,700.
