About

Expressionistic Jewelry x 2

Vive l’Amour!! Falling in love in a mirror’s reflection launched our creative journey that spans many jewelry collections! Rich in symbolism, our expressive artistry celebrates life’s precious milestones...from birth to loving remembrance

Classically trained in the European jewelry and watch making tradition, our studio’s master jeweler is Frenchman Jean whose passion for his craft is as palpable as his love for design partner and mirror-muse Leslie (an illustrated book author, graphic artist, and former French professeur).

Creators of fluidly styled art that's superbly crafted in sterling silver and gold, we specialize in fine jewelry and lockets that are made in our shop on historic Jewelers Row, just two blocks from the Liberty Bell. Visits by appointment are welcome!

Sharing our skills and experience since our studio's 1985 founding, we have been pro bono mentors to an international cast of aspiring jewelers, and have truly enjoyed learning from them too!

Our raison d'être: Things men have made with wakened hands, and put soft life into are awake through years with transferred touch, and go on glowing for long years.... D.H. Lawrence

Amitiés~

CARE TIPS
Our jewelry is made with Argentium* sterling silver which inhibits oxidation.

To refresh white sterling or gold: Use a liquid jewelry cleaner, or soft toothbrush with a tiny dab of verrrry diluted tooth paste. Rinse in cold water and pat dry. To refresh patinaed sterling: Rub with soft cloth only.

Do NOT use a paste or abrasive jewelry cloth on any textured surfaces as this will damage the finish.

Q: Does your purchased piece need a facelift?
Let us know before you send and we’ll refurbish at no charge. Return S&H addl'.

ARGENTIUM 925 Sterling Silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium.
