Country of Origin
Temple St. Clair founded her eponymous company in Florence, Italy and has continued to work with Florentine master goldsmiths, setters, chiselers, and engravers since the 1980’s. As Temple St. Clair has grown and expanded, we have sought out some of the greatest artisanal hands worldwide. We have extended our reach to other jewelry centers in Italy; to Italian goldsmiths who have set up workshops in Thailand; and to individual craftsmen in Sri Lanka (ancient Ceylon). Each of these countries has a rich tradition of fine gold work. We have also brought some work home to the United States; many of our wonderful chains are made domestically.
Temple St. Clair is now headquartered in New York City and being a U. S. based company, we follow U.S. importation and product disclosure regulations for all our jewelry. According to U.S. customs and importation guidelines, Country of Origin of a finished piece of jewelry is defined by the country “where a piece undergoes substantial transformation”, meaning where a piece becomes a ring, earring, pendant etc. An individual pendant may include an 18K gold angel coin made in Florence but if that coin is made into a ring or pendant in Sri Lanka, the country of origin is Sri Lanka. The same applies to a jewel with a gemstone: for example, we send a beautiful green tourmaline from Namibia to Florence to make a ring; the resulting country of origin of the ring will be Italy where it is made, not where the gem is from.
Our goldsmith partners in Italy, Sri Lanka, Thailand and the United States are like family to us. We have known and worked with them for decades. We visit the workshops regularly to review our expectations and to communicate our vision. Each one of our goldsmiths knows, respects and is proud to fulfill our uncompromising demand for quality. Together we strive to maintain the millennia-old, cross-cultural traditions of fine jewelry while seeking to define leadership in responsible practices for the future.
To validate COO for finished jewelry, TSC has a system in place that includes the following measures: (a) Imported product is processed by Overton & Co., America’s oldest operating Customs brokerage, (b) a COO tag is firmly attached to imported TSC merchandise when shipped, and (c) TSC’s senior management team regularly conducts site visits to its manufacturers to observe the work in progress.

The Tree of Life pendant can be turned into a family tree by engraving names or initials along the branches. Please inquire about special engraving and timing for these pieces. All sales are final on personally engraved jewels.
All templestclair.com purchases arrive wrapped in our signature boxes, pouches and tissue decorated with watercolors by Temple. All boxes include an authenticity card. For special requests, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will always do our best to accommodate you.
We offer handwritten notes with any purchase. Clients will be prompted at checkout if you wish to personalize your gift with a message.
Please take care of your jewels. Temple St. Clair jewelry is meant to stand the test of time. However, that does not mean that our jewels are to be worn for heavy lifting! Use our pouches and boxes to protect your jewels when not being worn. If your jewels need a little freshening, keep it simple – a light bath in a mild soap, with a rinse in cool water can remove most oils from normal wear. No bleach, no ultrasonic, no rough and tumble processes. We recommend a periodic professional cleaning.
Please contact email@example.com for information regarding repairs.
