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's Fine Jewellery collection is recognized for iconic rock crystal amulets, triple granulation and archer's granule; all are signature brand elements with a nod to the designer's classical foundation. With her High Jewellery collection, St. Clair celebrates a connoisseur level of gemstones with one-of-a-kind pieces born out of an ongoing quest for the rarest stones in the world such as richly patterned Lightening Ridge Australian Black Opal, electric blue Brazilian Paraiba Tourmaline, fiery African Tsavorite, and her iconic Royal Blue Moonstone.
