Of all the arts, jewelry is more similar to architecture than any other. Why? Because like a building, a piece of jewelry does not have meaning without the human body interacting with it. Just as a building with no means to enter it is a failed architecture project, a piece of jewelry that does not function as it should on the human body is likewise without value.

Unlike a painting, jewelry's beauty is not fully revealed when sitting in a showcase or on an inanimate form.

It follows that a ring that is so thick it cannot be worn comfortably, no matter how compelling-looking on a pedestal, is not really a ring.

The designer jewelry lines we carry must have pieces designed to fulfill their function. Without proper function, one cannot appreciate their form.
