    “This ring features our signature ancient Greek handwoven chain, a chain that has been made for over 3000 years and is on display in world-renowned collections, such as Egyptian and Greek galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The gold is finished in their signature "brushed" finish 22K alloy, an alloy favored throughout history, most notably by the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians.” — Loren Nicole

     


     

    Loren began her career in archaeology working on numerous digs in Central and South America researching ancient civilizations of northern Peru and then as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. It was there where what began as a curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion for ancient metalsmithing that ultimately eclipsed her academic interests and resulted in the launch of her inaugural collection in Summer 2016.

    Her love of the past and studied approach continues to be visible in her work, whether through researching museum collections of ancient chains to experimenting and perfecting her approach to chain making, or by employing the 3500 year old technique of granulation.

     

    We love that this ring is so stunning and unique yet can easily be worn every day. Its rich history only adds to its majesty.
