Our new Holly Berry Jewelry


1. Venus Pearl Silver Lariat, Black/White

Adapted from a painting by Peter Paul Rubens, our Venus Pearl Silver Drop Earrings are a firm fan favorite, but this year, we’ve given this classic look a new twist with the Venus Pearl Silver Lariat. The mismatched black and white pearls in this design hang from a shimmering sterling silver snake chain, giving this alluring piece a sleek, sophisticated feel.

3. Celestial Watch

Keeping with our starry theme is the Celestial Watch. This handsome timepiece takes its inspiration from a 17th-century calendar watch made by Thomas Alcock, who was recorded as working in London in the 1630s. Our watch’s dial replicates the evocative “man in the moon” seen on Alcock’s stunning original.

4. Late Hellenistic Carnelian Necklace

From early modern Europe we travel to the ancient world for our Late Hellenistic Carnelian Necklace. This dramatic piece borrows its singular look from an original Late Hellenistic parure (or matching set) crafted in gold, agate, and garnets. Our adaptation, which boasts an array of vibrantly hued carnelian stones, makes an elegant and versatile addition to any jewelry box.

5. Holly Berry Pin

It just wouldn’t be the holidays without a festive brooch to round out our top 5. The Holly Berry Pin brings to life a holly spring from an 1862 lithograph produced by Louis Prang of Boston. Featuring red glass berries and green patinated leaves, this merry piece adds a jolly touch to any lapel, sweater, or hat.
