The Temple Hallmark

In the tradition of fine metal work, our hallmark was established early on.  A temple, a play on the designer’s name and a nod to the classical foundation of the brand, marks all of our jewels.  A whimsical hand-drawn version is found in our packaging and print work.

Our Angels

1996

Temple St. Clair jewelry touches people individually on a personal level lending it to be treasured, collected, and handed down.  When the designer’s sons were born, she bought angel pendants for herself in Florence and had her sons’ names engraved on the back.  When the designer was seen wearing her angels, an immediate demand was created.  The angel coins are minted in Florence and are set in our signature settings.  Engraving is included.
