The Bow Ring comes in either turquoise or diamonds and is modeled on an extraordinary ring from 1860. ($875 or $2,250)
These two-tone white and yellow 14K-gold Archery Earrings were inspired by an Edwardian-era English jabot or "cliquet" pin. ($1,100)
Each of the two heads on the Two-Headed Snake Ring is decorated with an exquisitely lifelike engraving and set with tiny glittering diamonds as eyes. ($675 with diamonds)
Diamonds naturally form in the cubic shape of these Rough Diamond Cube Earrings. Erica Weiner did what many ancient jewelers did to gems: very little. ($375)
The Brazilian emeralds in the Raw Emerald Earrings are in their natural state, unpolished and irregularly shaped. ($425)
If you ever want to get us a present, you might start with jewelry from New York–based designer Erica Weiner, whose delicate creations feel like hidden treasures uncovered from your grandmother’s hope chest.
But while we love pretty much everything Weiner sells, we’re particularly excited about 1909, her new fine-jewelry collection inspired by vintage pieces from throughout the ages.
Each offering in the 14-piece line is a reimagining of an actual bygone item. Many are made using antique stones, and all have a very cool backstory. The gorgeous 14-karat-gold Archery Earrings ($1,100), for instance, were inspired by an Edwardian “cliquet” pin that may have been awarded as a prize at a turn-of-the-century women’s archery tournament. The Two-Headed Snake Ring ($400), meanwhile, hearkens back to the Victorian era, when Prince Albert famously proposed with an emerald-headed, ruby-eyed gold serpent ring.
Our favorite creation, however, is the pair of simple Rough Diamond Cube Earrings ($375). Modeled after first-century Roman earrings on display in the British Museum, these rustic jewels are so special precisely because so little has been done to them. Plus, each organically square diamond is ever so slightly different in terms of size and color.
Just think of them as the heirlooms you wish had been bequeathed to you.
