The Harvest


Warmly-hued jewels to be thankful for Just the word “Thanksgiving” has an inherent warmth to its name, bringing to mind pictures of complete coziness: warm food, beloved gatherings and comfortable clothing (to not wear something forgiving on this holiday would be a rookie mistake). The color stories associated with the holiday evoke warmth, too: orange, red, yellow, green, and brown, each infused with a golden sheen that is wonderfully pleasant to behold.

Bold designer styles to uncover at JCK Tucson 2020 You’ll find a wide variation of design inspirations and ethos when you visit with the exhibitors of JCK Tucson: the earth and all its inhabitants—under the sea and in the sky— play a role in many a designer’s creations, as does history and old world ways of jewelry-making, architecture, art, and the human form. No two creators are alike, and hopefully you’ll appreciate each perspective and the beautiful jewelry from which it comes. That doesn’t mean, however, that you won’t see a common thread throughout what the show floor has to…

Design of the Times: Graymoor Lane Designs


It all started in 1956 when a stylish Mid-century Modern house on Graymoor Lane in Olympia Fields, IL became the home to generations of strong Midwestern women. It wasn’t until 60 years later that the house inspired a daughter and granddaughter to transform it into the elegant jewelry store it is today, housing luxury, exquisitely-crafted jewelry collections.
