The three tenets that set Featherstone apart from the rest of the jewelry world are: the proliferation of platinum and beautifully bright gemstones in the line, the engineering that goes into each piece of the Featherstone Fine Jewelry collection, and the total dedication to handmade jewelry despite the increasing use of computer aided design in the industry.
Featherstone is the only studio that uses Platinum as its exclusive white metal. “Platinum,” Deirdre notes, “is the most incredible platform for color. It is supremely satisfying to all the senses.” The passion she feels for working in the metal is clearly reflected in the quality it produces in the collection. Deirdre has won ten American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Awards, all of which have been for her work in platinum.
