Rebecca Mir Grady launched her eponymous jewelry line in Chicago, Illinois in 2013. Today, her jewelry is made with care in her studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and she takes inspiration from landscapes encountered on far-flung adventures.
Rebecca’s jewelry is stunning in its simplicity, characterized by organic shapes and an understated modern aesthetic. In her most recent collection, Rebecca found inspiration in the otherworldly landscapes of Montana and Wyoming, where this past fall Rebecca and her wife, Sonia, celebrated their honeymoon and collaborated on a joint creative project.
As an advocate for environmentally sustainable practices, Rebecca makes all of her jewelry by hand from reclaimed precious metals—primarily Sterling Silver and 14k gold—and ethically-sourced stones. As a supporter of marriage equality, Rebecca’s collection includes a wide range of rings that could be perfect for betrothed couples. In celebration of her newly launched Collection VIII—and as a chance to offer RMTL readers a special discount on choices of their own—here are a few of my favorite pieces.
I’m especially drawn to Rebecca’s most delicate designs and I couldn’t resist the sentimental pull of a three-stoned ring to symbolize three of the most precious people in my life. The 14-karat yellow gold Petit Pré Diamond Ring now has a permanent spot in my own collection. The diamonds are flush-set into golden balls on a hammered band with a matte finish. I paired it here with the Terence, a simple band with slightly squared edges.
On my ring finger is the Opal Thetis, which I’ve been wearing for a few years now. It’s set with a 3mm Australian opal cabochon. In these images it’s paired with the Rebecca Mir Grady Thetis band, a rounded band measuring just shy of 1mm thick. I’m wearing the Thetis and Terence bands in yellow gold, but they’re also available in white and rose gold. The Cloudbreak Opal Necklace was originally part of Rebecca’s Sightline’s collection. In this necklace, Rebecca uses the same style of Australian opal cabochon as the one found in the Thetis Opal ring. It’s available with a sterling silver or yellow gold chain.
The Teton Opal Studs take their name from the Teton mountains in Wyoming. The Oregon hyalite opals in these earrings (and in the collection’s Grand Pre Opal Ring) are faceted, and their blueish tint and appearance is reminiscent of Moonstone. They’re gorgeous.
I always point fellow bracelet-loving folks to Rebecca’s bracelet designs. Her new two-toned Fuller Bangle was also inspired by her Wyoming trip and is named for writer Alexandra Fuller who lives in a yurt on the edge of Grand Teton National Park. The bangle is made from two parts sterling silver melded with one part 14k yellow gold. The Breakwater Cuff Bracelet, shown here in 2mm yellow gold, catches the light with subtle hand carving.
