Each piece of jewelry, big or small is a piece of art. Some pieces are more difficult to make than others, some require a lot more detail and time. This gorgeous piece was made with a difficult process known as Champlevé
The technique of Champlevé is traced back to celtic art in Europe around 3rd Century BC.
The name Champlevé comes from the French for “raised field”, “field” meaning background. Each one of the petals on this flower has been hand carved and etched with pattern then meticulously filled with enamel and fired until the enamel and gold fused. Once this process was done the piece was polished leaving the uncarved portions of the original surface visible as a frame for the enamel.
This beautiful brooch/ piece of art can be found at McCarver & Moser, and is waiting for its next owner , one that will appreciate its beauty as much as we do.
This “Wearable Wednesday” will most likely be replaced with a pair of sweat pants in preparation for tomorrows feast!!!

We wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings filled with family, friends, blessings and rest.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at

This Wearable Wednesday we say….
Pink gold, also known as rose gold was popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Today it is making a huge comeback and is being featured by designers in wedding rings, bracelets, and other fine jewelry.
This Wednesday the question is simple
“Who wouldn’t want to look pretty in pink?”
If Pink gold is a new concept for you and you want to get your feet wet before diving right in…
This Simon-G ring from the garden collection with just a subtle amount of pink gold will do the trick!
This right hand ring is 18 karat white gold and features 3 pink gold flowers and 0.55ctw of diamonds!
Our pick this Wednesday is the “Twenty-4”watch by Patek Philippe.
Launched in 1999 the “Twenty-4” was designed with active women in mind. Its sleek wearable design can be worn on any occasion. Hence the name “Twenty-4” no matter the time of day, the lucky lady that owns this watch can wear it with confidence and style on any occasion, big or small.
Patek Phillipe has created models to fit any taste, they come in Rose & White gold as well as Stainless Steel, different colored dials and adorned with diamonds.
Radiant Orchid was voted 2014 Color of the year.
If you have ever stepped foot in our store then you know just how much we love this color! We have a large display of beautiful, vibrant orchids. When customers ask: “how do you keep your orchids so beautiful?” We often respond with “they feed off the diamonds in our cases!”
