MCTEIGUE & MCCLELLAND

Meet an unparalleled name in fine jewelry. The brainchild of Walter McTeigue—a fourth-generation jeweler whose great-grandfather sourced stones for Tiffany & Co.—and jeweler Tim McClelland, the Massachusetts firm marries the former’s expertise in gemstones with the latter’s mastery of old-world craftsmanship. The result are modern heirlooms made from rare stones—black jade and Tahitian pearls included—using centuries-old techniques such as blooming: a Victorian-era chemical process that strips gold to create a burnished patina.

Editors' pick: the clustered fire opal drop earrings.
