You officially heard it here first: Elizabeth is bringing back her bespoke Solid Gold and Diamond Shark Tooth Necklaces in select styles.
This line is part of her Fine Collection which was created in 2021, and was a hallmark move for Elizabeth’s career and jewelry line. She had always dreamed of working with Solid Gold and Diamonds, the finest of all precious gemstones and metals.
When she was finally in the right place in her career and ready to create the line, it was like everything had fallen perfectly into place. Elizabeth worked with our talented friend and master jeweler, and she knew she was finally achieving her lifetime goal while also establishing herself in the big leagues alongside other famed designers. Did I mention she also got to work alongside the master himself and learn all the techniques applied in this style of jewelry making? Two words: Bad. Ass.
And by the way, no one was doing it quite like her. Putting a twist on her well known Shoreline Collection and using the ocean as inspiration, Elizabeth chose several species of fossilized shark teeth found on our shores in Northeast Florida. They made the perfect cast for what would become the solid gold piece, picking up all the natural elements of the tooth from each serration to the bourlette to the root. (The bourlette is the chevron or “flattened V” shaped enamel just below the root on front side of a tooth.)
We work with Mother Nature versus against her. What some people may see as flaws, we see as fingerprints, and we highlight these individual characteristics to show off their genuine beauty.
Once the tooth was set in solid gold it was time to design the diamonds. Set in various ways to highlight each species of tooth and their unique shape, the VS1 colorless, flawless diamonds were the perfect touch to these already irresistible pieces.
Each one of a kind necklace is thoughtfully intended to compliment not only the person wearing it but also celebrate the wonderful ocean at our backyard and forever close to our hearts.
Elizabeth was so happy with how the styles were received, and the enthusiasm from clients drove her to keep creating more. Since the first two collections have completely sold out, and the demand for these styles was greater than ever, she made the choice to reinvest and produce more of these signature pieces!
We’ve put out some teasers along the way, not giving too much detail because of course we want to keep you on your toes!
While we all know that these beauties will be well worth the wait, they will sell quick so but be sure to stay tuned and follow along on social media & via blogs to know when the pieces drop in store and online!
