. . . there has been a diamond ring, a louis ghost armchair, and even an herman miller eames chair, but since — in over a year — there has not been another glamorous give-away in all this time . . .

couture-spring1

. . . and there has been, perhaps, a wait and a search, of sorts, for something extraordinary to come along, something truly spectacular . . .

amphora-dip

. . . perfect for valentine’s day and perfectly practical for any day of the week, amphora, is a patent pending necklace that allows one to quickly & easily attach a beloved ring [or rings], without unclasping or removing the chain . . .

valentino-backstage

amphora‘s innovative design was invented by emily c, who found herself, in june of 2010, newly engaged and with a beautiful ring to seal the deal, designed by the fiancé himself, around a family diamond;

rings

. . . of course, she adored the ring, and could not bear to take it off, for fear of losing it, choosing to wear a simple gold chain around her neck, attaching the ring to it when she went to the gym, got a manicure, cooked, washed dishes, and all of the unavoidable tasks of everyday life . . .

the solution was adequate, but not perfect, for, removing the necklace many times a day was time-consuming, and so emily, began to dream up more practical ways to keep her ring safe, and perhaps, display it beautifully at the same time, both of which, she accomplished with the elegant and luxurious amphora — and the rest, as they say, is history . . .

french-doors-chandeliers

. . . and since have already lost three diamond rings [and a watch, but that is another story], fell completely and utterly in love with the elegant, innovative design, especially after catching a glimpse of how it works — part puzzle, and part magic, am, without uncertainty, quite captivated . . .

about | FURTHER READING

Why is it called “Amphora“? | Amphora is an ancient Greek term referring to a two handled vessel with a narrow neck, historically used to carry wine or oils. The original necklace Emily designed was in the shape of an amphora, and she loved that each necklace is, in a sense, a “vessel” for carrying precious cargo.

The Amphora necklace is carefully designed to not only securely hold your ring (or rings, such as engagement and wedding bands together), but also to feature them in a way that displays them beautifully. The necklaces are manufactured by expert jewelers in LA from solid silver, 14k yellow gold, or 14k white gold, and are currently available in 3 designs, with more on the way.

Each necklace comes packaged in a gift box, enclosed with simple and clear instructions for how to use and care for your Amphora; each is expertly and lovingly made in Los Angeles, California, out of the highest quality silver or solid yellow, white, or pink gold.
