brimfield travel diary

We just returned from our annual road trip to the infamous Brimfield Antique Flea Market. This year we stayed at the lovely Old Sturbridge Inn, with hand-painted landscape walls by Rufus Porter (1830's) and a huge canopy bed. We lined up early and dashed in to see all our most favored dealers, searching for lover's eyes, intaglios, silvery old diamonds, portrait nudes and objets d'art amongst the endless rows of treasures and...

the bright side

We’re welcoming summer sunshine with good vibes and vibrant jewels. Think bold turquoise, pearlescent opals, gleaming diamonds, and statement gems aplenty. Chain, rope, and buckle details are catching our attention too. As always, layering speaks volumes, be it a triple bracelet pile-up or thoughtfully stacked rings decorating every finger on the hand. There’s beauty to be found in bold and delicate touches alike. Read on for some visual inspiration from...

love story

Metier is all about commitment. We love helping couples find jewelry that symbolizes their relationships and relates to who they are. We understand that, more often than not, several rings need to be tried on before the right one(s) calls out. Thankfully, the lines of tradition have been blurred leaving modern day ring-seekers with a bevy of choices. From contemporary rings with opulently colored stones to detailed antiques with a sense...

celebrate your mama!

Every day we hold our mothers close. For some of us, it's through weekly FaceTimes, for others it’s Sunday squeezes or lunch date meet-ups.  May is a time to honor the bonds, the relationships, the endless advice–the love. Make mama happy with some spring blooms and something shiny, too. Perhaps a Victorian era keepsake or pair of modern studs. Get inspired by the new arrivals below and shop online here....

spring feels

This spring we're feeling a little moody, a little bold, more mysterious overall. Pearlescent moonstones, splashes of bright yellow gold, sienna-hued diamonds and lush emeralds share the field. The days are getting longer, leaving us with a few more sun-filled hours of daylight—we couldn't be happier. Read on for some of our most coveted pieces, layered up, shadows and all.

q&a with marla aaron

One of the best things about owning a jewelry shop is learning more about the designers whose work fills our velvet-lined cases. We starting carrying Marla Aaron's eponymous line in December after getting a glimpse of one of her badass locks on a customer—we fell for her even more on Instagram. What began with the now classic carabiner lock has evolved into the versatile collection it is today. Inspired by tools and...

just in: estate jewelry

We are often asked why we buy what we buy. With regards to estate & antique jewelry, we're drawn to the sentimentality, the history, and the vast range of styles born from various periods. For us, it's more about an instinctual magnetism, pulling us toward unusual stones, rare cuts, and lost art forms. Estate jewelry offers an element of mystery alongside seductive beauty and allure. Our curations are reflections of our own personal...
