“On a recent trip to Florence’s Uffizi gallery I stumbled upon a painting by Titian, the Venus of Urbino, or Reclining Venus. In this classical painting of a woman lounging in a Renaissance palace, she holds a fresh bouquet of flowers loosely in her right hand, while her left, draped softly over the curves of her body, is adorned with the most delicate, golden, signet ring. I have always desired to wear a signet ring but never seemed to be able to find one feminine or delicate enough, the sort of petite finger decoration immortalized by Titian, until now.
When I collect jewelry I don’t just collect pieces for myself, but pieces that will be a joy to pass down, that is part of defining our family history. I’m thrilled to unveil this newest collaboration with Monica Rich Kosann that brings the Old World into today for those of us who want to wear timeless pieces that are heirlooms forever. Inspired by European classical paintings and my love for delicate flowers, this engravable ring is a way to say something about who you are.”

"Jamie Beck and I met many years ago and immediately bonded over our mutual love of photography. We also shared a love of anything vintage that embodied the stories of lives well lived. It was not long before the two of us realized that we were both hopeless romantics.
I immediately fell in love with her work, and Jaime showed an equal passion for my jewelry. To me, Jamie is a friend, a fellow artist, and an inspiration."
