VerbenaPlaceJewelry's Shop Announcement

Artisan jewelry, entirely handmade and designed by David Worcester using Argentium 960 high purity silver, 14k yellow gold, and precious and semi-precious gemstones.

Sorry, we are not able to take on custom work.

Hi! I'm David, here with my wife, Helen.

Welcome to our home at Etsy.

After selling our karat gold and precious gem pieces to retailers across the United States and internationally for over thirty years, we're pleased to now offer them directly along with new creations in Argentium Silver, recently verified as the most tarnish resistant silver made.

We use no commercial settings to hold gemstones. In fact, most of our pieces have no heads at all, but secure the stones through tension setting, using a spring action designed into the piece itself.

I love to tinker and develop innovative, fun, and interesting ways to set stones to show off their beauty, and now to be able to share my pendant and earring designs with you.

Argentium Silver is of 100% recycled silver, and the specific alloy that we use is the whitest, brightest, highest purity on the market, having about half the non-silver content of traditional sterling. In addition, it can be treated to be harder and more durable than the normal, lower purity material. Though a bit more difficult to come by, we think that it's well worth the extra trouble to obtain this beautiful, newly introduced metal.
