ArtCarved was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1850 by J.R. Wood who set out to create the standard for innovation, quality and craftsmanship for diamond engagement rings and wedding bands. His first diamond engagement ring creation, the “Victoria”, immediately captured the hearts of women everywhere. And so began a heritage of helping women celebrate special moments with uniquely beautiful fine jewelry.
From the development of the first soldered seamless wedding rings in the 1890’s to the invention of carved rings designed by skilled artisans in the 1920’s, ArtCarved married exquisite craft and the utmost appreciation and understanding of beauty and emotion.
In the 1940’s, during WWII, the production of jewelry was ceased by congress to redistribute metals for the war. ArtCarved became the only jewelry brand allowed to continue making wedding rings. We popularized the dual ring ceremony, where each married person receives a ring to commemorate their love. Thus began a tradition of rings being exchanged as a sign of enduring love and commitment – a tradition that continues to this day, around the world.
Over time, ArtCarved has continued to strengthen our emotional connection with consumers by celebrating the way they live and love…from the big moments, to the small moments and all the moments in between.
ArtCarved understands what inspires consumers. We have designed fine jewelry to fit the lives and personal style for generation after generation. This long and rich tradition of understanding our consumer’s lives has been passed down once again. By speaking with a relevant new voice to a whole new generation of Millennials through a wide range of fine jewelry in a variety of styles, a whole new world of ArtCarved has emerged.
ArtCarved has an unparalleled commitment to beautiful design, and a tradition of handcrafted quality and artisanship and a distribution network of trusted retailers who deeply understand and proudly sell the ArtCarved brand. Tradition, authenticity, high quality and beautiful design. These values have solidified ArtCarved’s strong reputation as a fine and bridal jewelry leader in the hearts and minds of consumers and retailers alike.
