Elizabeth Garvin’s chic geometric shapes come alive in silver with 18k gold accents and dustings of diamonds. The artist marries various two-tone effects in metal with geometric shapes inspired by industrial design and architecture. What’s more, her fine jewelry styles are sturdy—in contrast with most lighter-weight silver styles on the market today.
“Silver fashion, such as oxidized sterling silver with 24 karat gold and big gemstones from Lika Behar, sells well for us.”
