Seeing my jewelry from years gone by, recreated in other shops – flattering!

Its interesting to look back on my designs from even before 2010 here on these pages. Some of my oldest designs are now, and still? in 2015 being recreating by other local? boutiques / jewelry makers. A good design I guess is demanding to be mimicked, but? remember to always pay attention to the details in the workmanship. ( they haven't recreated my designs exactly!) GemCat for the real deal, more silver used in all designs, and the price ? well, my uptown customers keep coming back & tell me the? price is far better too!? Genuine Swarovski crystal and sterling silver, -always top quality materials used and a guarantee I stand behind.? GemCat Jewels Jewelry by Design? Call? 651-5798
