We hope to leave the world a better place for those who come next. We focus on sustainability, upcycling materials steeped in artistry from past centuries. We extend the concept of legacy, and we retell the story these pieces have accumulated in their passage through time. We prepare them for a place in the modern world, ready for new lives in new homes.
Whether you want to add to your existing collection of family jewelry, or you want to start a new collection, you’re invited to explore Romy in the Desert. One-of-a-kind pieces built from heirlooms sourced from around the world. That’s what we do.
A note from romy
My mission to create these antique pieces for you began decades ago.
This was before I had formal training in jewelry design and online resources were a thing of the future.
Today, old ideas about aging are being discarded. Growing old is not bad.
This maxim applies to both people and jewelry.
We're reappraising what we want from fashion by letting new ideas draw from the past. We're thinking at least twice before tossing something aside. Does it have enduring value that can be revealed in a fresh way?
Over the years, I have amassed an elegant inventory of fobs, watch chains, stick pins and hat pins.
Many are hallmarked with the date and place of their origin.
This collection is generated by the vision that inspires Romy in the Desert.
As Alessandro Michele, the director of Gucci says, "There are not old things or new things, only beautiful things".
