Jewelry is personal. Some could argue that it could indeed be the most personal thing you place on your body. It is not simply metal and stone that we adorn ourselves. It is thousands of years of craftsmanship; it is metal from the depths of our Earth and minerals that have endured millions of years of trial by water and fire to become what they are today. The practice of wearing jewelry, originally for protection then for currency and finally for decoration, is as nearly as ancient as humanity itself. And we use the word practice purposefully, for truly wearing jewelry is a practice more so than an act. At Age of Sail we create reimagined talisman heirlooms from antique and vintage finds that we hope you will treasure and pass down through your own family for generations to come.
At Age of Sail, we want you to find your own Talismans. Your own symbols of protection and power – because, that is ultimately what jewelry can give you. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks knew this, the Celts knew this, and we continue seeking out those pieces that call to our souls today. Our owner has been personally collecting pieces for over 25 years and brings her discerning eye to the collection found at Age of Sail.
So have a look… your Talisman is waiting.
