Was a Gift, everyday wear
Every season brings its own unique beauty: summer sizzles with long, sun-drenched days punctuated by beach trips and bonfires; autumn sets nature aflame with the fiery hues of foliage in flux; winter welcomes quiet evenings hushed under blankets of pristine snow; verdant spring is a time of rebirth and renewal.
Catherine Weitzman celebrates the spectacle of the changing seasons with this series of gorgeous necklaces. 18 karat gold vermeil or sterling silver chains suspend symbols of each passing season, including silvery leaves for spring, shell, starfish, and sand dollar medallions for summer, acorns for autumn, and pinecones for winter. Carry the spirit of your favorite season with you always, honor a loved one's birth month, or collect all four to refresh your look as nature changes hers. Handmade in Hawaii.

Made in Hawaii
Exclusively for UncommonGoods
Catherine Weitzman draws her inspiration from her innate sense of organic style, her love and respect for the ocean, and her extensive world travels. She's had the good fortune to study first hand with traditional artisans from many parts of the world. In addition to apprenticing with metalsmiths at the Scuola Lorenzo di Medici in Florence, this group of mentors includes silversmiths of the Sahara, bamboo whittlers from Indonesia, and creators of precious metal clay in Tokyo. Drawing from each of these experiences, Catherine developed her own unique process and production style. She designs much of her work with her husband, Scott Diamond, and collaborates with an extremely gifted handmade production team in their California and Hawaii studios.
Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Four Seasons Necklace qualified for the Collection:

This necklace is beautiful. The colors of the stones look great with the gold on the Summer necklace. This would be a great beach necklace. I bought this as a gift for my mother in law, and i'm afraid it may be just a bit too short for her. But if it is I will just keep it for myself because it is so lovely. The chain came tangled, but I was easily able to straighten it out. This necklace is well made, and would make a great gift, or would be great to keep for myself!
Wonderful gift that achieved the effect I was after
Bought the Spring necklace for my "Plant anniversary" (4 year wedding anniversary) for my wife. It is beautiful and adds great color. The chain is unique and lays great on her neck. She loves it!
Great to dress up or down, very good quality and so unique.
Gift selected and requested by adult daughter who likes it very much

Very shiny, beautiful and delicate. So much prettier than I thought it would be. Love the artist's story as well, and the little T-shirt bag it came in. And when packaged in a plastic bag, the clasp was separated from the rest, making it easier to pull out and put on. I totally love this necklace!!!

Beautiful and unique necklace. I purchased the winter one as a gift for my sister who values quality. I can present this with no worries. She will love it!
