Town & Country Style Spy: Jewelry

A dear family friend sent me a tear out from September’s Town & Country that I wanted to share! “This Old Thing?” reminded me of what we do here at Prather Beeland. Taking old pieces and giving them new life. One jewelry designer took ancient spearheads, set them in gold, surrounded them in diamonds, and made earrings. Others were making brooches from antique mosaics or rings with ancient coins. It is amazing the ways people come up with beautiful jewelry designs combining old and new. Check out the article in T&C and see some Prather Beeland Updated Antiques below:
