Lustrous Lace

Make an organically romantic statement with Tulianna and Alejandra Garces' ring that combines the timeless qualities of lace and gold. In a painstaking process taking several days, Colombian artisans transform lace into stunning, finely-detailed jewelry. The process is entirely done by hand: pieces of lace are cut and sewn, dipped in wax to seal and reinforce them, then in a layer of copper, and finally in 24k gold. The piece is then brushed by hand, clearing every void of the lace from excess metal to preserve its subtle detail. Finally, a lacquer is brushed onto each ring to protect its delicate beauty. The resulting pieces are glittering tributes to the traditional art of lace making, and gorgeous statements to add to your collection. Handmade in Colombia.

“A large part of [our] mission is to encourage these artisans to maintain their cultural traditions while also being able to support their families.”

It’s been several decades since mother-daughter duo Tulianna and Alejandra Garces emigrated from Colombia. However, the Vermont-based jewelry makers stay connected to their homeland via their collection of dipped-lace jewelry, which is crafted in the South American country by artisans trained by the Garces women. “A large part of [our] mission is to encourage these artisans to maintain their cultural traditions while also being able to support their families,” Tulianna says.

While the Garces’ dipped-lace styles draw inspiration from pre-Columbian jewelry traditions, Tulianna and Alejandra have recently branched out into locally made pieces as well, which they handcraft in their studio. The designs feature organic materials sourced in Vermont, continuing to ground their work in a sense of place–and home.

Comments about UncommonGoods Vine Gold Dipped Lace Ring:

I will have to take this ring to a jeweler to shorten a few pointed areas. Parts of this design extend too long and digs into my finger, no matter how I change the position. Finger feels irritated. I love it, but sad I'm uncomfortable...I purchased it to wear it..and now its sitting in a box.

    Pretty ring

    Comments about UncommonGoods Vine Gold Dipped Lace Ring:

    I wasn't sure what to expect with this ring since each peice is different and there are no sizes. I wear about an 8 on my middle finger and the ring looks great, I'm not sure if it would be gawky on small hands. I would have rated this 5, but the 'lace' is larger on one end and doesn't sit even on my finger. It's very pretty, handmade item!
