Seal & Scribe
The Seal & Scribe Story
Seal & Scribe was born from the life of a world traveler who was drawn to the elegance, mystery and beauty of bygone eras. Having been captivated by antiques and heirloom jewelry since childhood, it was no wonder we became smitten after acquiring the first of many antique intaglio seals. Seeing the unique artistic expression in each piece and the incredible level of craftsmanship and artistry that must have gone into hand-carving these extremely small yet detailed and delicate etchings, Seal & Scribe quickly developed a passion for lovingly restoring each piece as if it were a tiny etching in need of a new ‘frame.’ Traveling the globe, Seal & Scribe now collects and reframes these tiny treasures into heirloom-worthy adornment for today’s woman. Each piece is thoughtfully curated and brought back to our workshop where we begin the process of carefully and gently cleaning, restoring and preparing each piece. Once ready, we use traditional, Old World metalsmithing techniques to re-frame each seal into a lush, hand-crafted gold setting using a combination of styles that are at once both ancient and contemporary. We strive to bring our clientele gorgeous, one-of- a-kind artwork - as each piece evokes its own unique story - and when transformed into precious adornment, retains a timeless elegance, an effortless beauty, and a dash of mystery that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
