Temple St. Clair founded her company in 1986 in Florence, Italy, beginning her collaboration with the world's finest goldsmiths - the centuries-old Florentine goldsmiths' guild. That same year, St. Clair became the first fine jeweler to be represented and carried by Barneys New York. With an artist's eye and explorer's heart, St. Clair fashions rare colored gems with distinctive gold work to illustrate universal narratives of the earth and cosmos. Temple St. Clair's jewels are treasured by devoted collectors. Her collections are sold throughout North America, Europe and Japan.
