Alexis Bittar launched his jewelry collections in the early 90s; but the Brooklyn native's artistic flair was evident long before then. As a child, Bittar accompanied his parents to flea markets, where they collected and sold rare antiques and collectibles. At the tender age of 10, Bittar showed his entrepreneurial spirit by selling flowers from a hand-painted cart across the street from his house.

John Medeiros Jewelry

2 Apr

Handcrafted Fashion Jewelry

john Medeiros, founder and CEO of Tahoe Jewelry, introduced the John Medeiros line in 2000 after having worked in the jewelry industry for many years. As a child of European immigrants trying to make a living in Providence, Rhode Island – once the international capital of costume jewelry production – Medeiros worked in the precious metals industry while still in school. In 1984, Medeiros founded Tahoe Jewelry, providing the precious metals jewelry industry with intricate polishing and stone setting services during the day, while at night he was working on what would become the John Medeiros line – real jewelry handcrafted in the USA from non-precious metals.

gemstone pendant
Anvil Collection Pendant
John Medeiros created the horseshoe motif Anvil Collection with inspiration from the respected blacksmiths of Old Europe. The horseshoe is also a common symbol of good luck and has often been linked to the Grecian goddess of the moon, Artemis, and her protection.

John Medeiros's mission is to provide timeless jewelry designs made with the highest quality materials and the finest product engineering. He strives to create jewelry for everyday wear that will retain its flawless appearance, even as it is handed down from generation to generation. Some key design attributes of John Medeiros pieces are that all designs are registered and copyrighted. The jewelry has hand carved detail on the front, back, and sides. Stones are often prong set and not glued.

Cubic Zirconia pendant
Antigua Collection Necklace
The circle is ancient and universal symbol of unity, wholeness, completeness, infinity, the goddess, and female power. Used in jewelry, the shape creates a completeness and sense of calm roundness.

At the age of twelve, John Medeiros began working in fine jewelry. Using the same engineering techniques as those used in precious metals, John is able to offer more affordable prices by using high quality non-precious metals and stones.

beaded necklace
Beaded Collection Necklace
Beads seem to have first come into existence around 2200 BC in Ancient Egypt. Since then, beads have been used in trade, in place of money, as decorative elements, and certainly as jewelry, and have been made from substances ranging from seeds to bone and jade.

John Medeiros jewelry all comes with a lifetime guarantee. Each piece is made from:
• Base Material: Non-precious lead-free premium alloy with .02% of silver which are strong and lightweight.
• Overlay/Finish/Plate: Rhodium and 14K gold which has a permanent non-tarnish, easy to care for finish. John Medeiros uses rhodium, a derivative of platinum. Rhodium has all of the attributes of platinum with the added benefit of being harder, lasting longer, and a whiter tone.
• Stones: Man-made Cubic Zirconium which will not chip, crack, cloud or fade. Cubic Zirconium is virtually indistinguishable to the eye by diamond experts, can scratch glass like natural diamonds, and is tougher than a sapphire.
• Earring Posts: Surgical steel which are ideal for sensitive ears prone to infection or allergies.

Adriana Orsini Jewelry

31 Mar

Swarovski Crystal Pavé Jewelry

Adriana Orsini Pavé Jewelry is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. Pavé, French for pavement, is a jewelry technique whereby the surface is covered with stones. Each stone is held in place by tiny beads, actually very small prongs, that are molded into the jewelry and bent over or flattened against the stones to hold them in place. This method is highly labor intensive since it involves the setting of a large number of very small stones.
