Steven Kretchmer Jewelry
Steven Kretchmer jewelry has often been referred to as the most innovative designer to ever hit the jewelry scene. World renowned for his eighteen karat blue gold, purple gold, gold mokume gane, and other magical precious metals, he captured mysterious yet fundamental forces of nature and transformed them into timeless works of art. Steven’s signature Tension-Set™ jewelry and magnetic Polarium™ platinum jewelry have revolutionized fine jewelry design.
Steven Kretchmer’s continual development and use of unique precious metals, displayed in ageless designs with diamonds and gems, added new dimensions to the fine art of jewelry.
“I design future classics that become heirlooms… precious pieces, created by rare techniques. I do not redo what has been done.” – Steven Kretchmer
Like her father, famed jewelry “alchemist” Steven Kretchmer, Claudia took a somewhat circuitous path to the helm of what has become the eponymous, internationally celebrated jewelry design firm.
In 2007 Claudia’s first solo design, The Star Pendant, won the Town & Country Couture Design Awards. This recognition inspired her to build an entire collection, drawing from her love of astronomy. A female perspective brings the signature Kretchmer look a feminine touch that has since earned Claudia multiple design awards, including the much-coveted AGTA Spectrum Award and the WJA Excellence in Design Award in 2016.
Claudia continues to expand on the beautiful foundation her parents built with uniquely imaginative designs that are imbued with Steven’s passion for precious metals and her own inspired style.View Steven Kretchmer Gallery
