A & R Jewellery consists of Angela and Ryan Rosenberg exclusively. It is our full-time commitment and frankly, what lights us up. We design and fabricate earrings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets and rings with a high level of attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Our one of a kind wearable art is handcrafted exclusively from raw Argentium Sterling Silver sheets or wire and authentic Gemstones. We do not cast or mass-produce nor sell any jewellery that we have not made ourselves.
Argentium silver is the only silver we use because of its superior quality. It is the slowest tarnishing and strongest silver, has a higher silver content, is always nickel-free and is the whitest of all the metals. Those who suffer allergic reactions to Sterling Silver usually can wear Argentium. This unique precious metal is used to make our own ear wires, jump rings, clasps and even chains.
Every jewellery piece begins with a design concept. As with nature, harmony must exist - therefore great attention is made to blend design and functionality to ensure your piece ‘sits’ correctly and endures the test of time.
Finding the right gemstone for every design is paramount. A bezel wire is cut to the circumference of the stone and then carefully shaped and soldered to perfectly fit the stone. The backplate is hand-cut from a sheet of Argentium Silver and texturized.
The silver masterpiece in progress is filed, shaped and secured to perfect the design using an armamentarium of hand tools and torches. Baking is part of the process which brings the alloy germanium contained in the Argentium to the surface and inhibits tarnishing. A hand pusher is used to rough set each stone followed by a burnisher which smoothes out and hardens the silver. A rotary tumbler and an array of buffing wheels clean and polish the jewellery in the final stages before it finds its forever home.
It is our goal to create your favorite piece of jewellery!
