What was it that made women like Audrey Hepburn, Princess Grace, and Greta Garbo so timeless in their beauty and elegance? Why does the image of Humphrey Bogart kissing Ingrid Bergman on a Casablanca tarmac stay steadfast in our memories no matter how much time goes by? Why can a single piece of jewelry capture the essence and individuality of a woman like nothing else?

Carl Blackburn has his own answer. And the public seems to agree. The Beverly Hills designer’s active collection of over 200 Art Deco and Edwardian style jewelry continues to fire consumer passions around the globe. According to Blackburn, the artisans who fashion his collection are among the best in the industry and work their jewelry in the same time-honored way as their forefathers. That is, by hand. Every Carl Blackburn piece is painstakingly handcrafted and handset with perfectly cut diamonds and/or precious gemstones.

The artistry reaches its zenith with Carl Blackburn’s engagement rings and eternity bands. Fashioned from platinum or 18K white gold, these elegant rings are a craftsman’s showcase—featuring hand-engraved vintage patterns and flowing beds of filigree. Large center stones are frequently set ablaze by halos of pavé set micro-diamonds and fancified with milgrained edges worthy of the finest haute joaillerie.

Yet the collection is surprisingly affordable. Outside of the large diamond engagement rings, the average retail price for Carl Blackburn’s jewelry runs less that USD $1500. Its reasonable price also has fueled the collection’s increasing popularity. In the last year, retail partners for the designer have grown to more than 300 worldwide. Meanwhile, those luxurious styles of days-gone-by continue to enchant Hollywood and customers from all walks of life.


Among today’s elite group of rising jewelry houses that have elevated the lustrous reputation of platinum, Carl Blackburn is distributed by more than 300 premier jewelers throughout the United States and worldwide. Blending Nature’s inspiration with a forward European-style fashion sense, the internationally branded company offers a full range of vintage-inspired jewelry. Each piece is hand-engraved, hand-milgrained, and set with finer quality diamonds and gemstones by expanding teams of master platinumsmiths and lapidary artisans.
