Special of the Month:

Beyond The Glitter is a unique jewelry collection that has something for everyone. I offer an exciting combination of innovative artistic designs, high quality materials and many one-of-a-kind or limited edition items, all at competitive prices with excellent customer service.

I have been designing and selling jewelry for over 30 years. I am a GIA Gemologist, (Gemological Institute of America) and specialize in colored stones, diamonds and antique jewelry. I am based in the Washington, DC region and participate in art festivals and gem shows throughout Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Please check my  SHOW SCHEDULE for upcoming events.

The FINE Jewelry is a combination of new and old. The appeal of antique style jewelry is as timeless as the designs they represent. I have my own in house design center where I design Fine Jewelry for precious gems and diamonds. I offer antique style pieces as well as contemporary styles using Platinum, 18 and 14 karat white and yellow gold. This collection also contains many antique originals that have been restored or are in their original state.

The VINTAGE Jewelry collection also contains many antique originals and reproductions that are reminiscent of jewelry produced from Victorian stampings. I use only the finest Austrian crystals, Czechoslovakian glass, antique buttons and vintage glass. These pieces are all handcrafted and represent our most popular styles and colors. The antiqued base metal finishes maintain their beautiful luster over time.

The FASHION Jewelry is just that. I look for the most fashion forward designs and bring them to you. Most pieces are reproductions of designer jewelry and have those same elements of sophistication. Materials vary depending on the piece and each item will have it’s own original quality stated.

The FUN and FUNKY Jewelry is an eclectic group of handcrafted jewelry that is full of ethnic artifacts, celestial charms, semiprecious stones, porcelains and talismans from different regions. This category is well defined as wearable art and is always popular.

It is with great pleasure, that I invite you to scroll through my collection of unique, quality, handcrafted jewelry.

Thanks,  Colleen
