We are pleased to introduce our newest collection from Ed Levin Jewelry, handcrafted in the United States since 1950.  Ed Levin, the founder and namesake, started designing jewelry while living in Buenos Aires and working with a master Florentine jeweler.  He brought what he learned back to the United States and began making jewelry on his New York City apartment stovetop, selling his jewelry to college students as he traveled by bus through New England.  From New York, he moved to Vermont in 1953. and then in 1968, he moved to the current home of Ed Levin Jewelry in Cambridge, New York.

Ed Levin passed his artistic vision and skills on to the next generation of master craftsmen, who carry on his legacy and continue to create and handcraft the most beautiful pieces using age old techniques and only the finest materials available.  Explore our collection and discover Ed Levin's truly innovative and inventive designs that include uniquely hinged “swing” bracelets, pivoting necklaces that work with any neckline and earrings that delight.  From the classic "Signature" bracelet, pictured above far right, to the whimsy of the "Champagne" bracelet, pictured above far left, there is something for everyone in this gorgeous collection from one of the oldest and largest hand-crafted jewelry manufacturers in the United States.

Birthstone of the Month - Ruby

In this month that celebrates the red, white and blue, what better way to celebrate a July birthday than with the gorgeous red of July’s birthstone, the Ruby.

From the Latin word Ruber, which means red, Rubies are one of the four precious stones, joining Emeralds, Sapphires and Diamonds in this highly prized category. A variety of the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide), the red color is mainly caused by the presence of the element chromium. Color is first when it comes to Rubies. The brightest and most valuable "red" called blood-red or pigeon blood, commands a large premium over other Rubies of similar quality. Clarity follows color, then cut and carat weight. Rubies are also the third hardest stone, following only behind Mossanite and Diamonds, making them extremely durable and wearable.

Through time, Rubies have been considered to be a symbol of vitality, royalty, deep love and passion. Some have even said that they guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love. Considered to be one of the healing stones, they are claimed to aid in the emotions and to increase integrity, devotion, and happiness, bringing peaceful contentment to the wearer. With all of these positive associations, a piece of Ruby jewelry is the perfect gift for her July birthday.

Arthur Weeks and Son Jewelers carries a large collection of Ruby jewelry both online and in our store. From sparkling Ruby and Diamond Rings and Eternity Bands to fabulous Hoop Earrings and gorgeous Pendants. We have something for everyone in a price range for every budget.  If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us.
