The current designs are boldly created with inspiration from architectural and historical references in 22k, 14k and 18k gold (in all colors) and 925 silver then set with precious and semi-precious natural gemstones. There are a variety of styles for men and women in our core VETUS Collection. This line is created in 22k and 925 silver with a distressed surface inspired by the surface treatments and details of buildings, archeological ruins and the “mythology” of past civilizations. “Our design lines are strong, bold and flowing to convey – strength and comfort with a timeless feel.” Designed and made in America.
