Carl Blackburn belongs to that select group of jewelry designers whose work is showcased in both metropolitan art galleries and fine high-street stores. Born into a family of jewelers, Blackburn began his career in the late 1980's and gradually built a devoted clientele. Since 2003, he has operated an artisans’ studio that’s displayed a virtuoso talent in producing iconic pieces forged by Blackburn’s passion for nature, history, architecture, and fashion–and which have been featured in dozens of fine jewelry magazines in the United States and around the world.
Committed to making fine jewelry that “can be lived in with comfort, glamour, and joy,” Carl Blackburn has described his work as a personal odyssey toward a re-discovery of the beautiful. His 2008 collection reflects a sensitivity in design, execution, and wearability that is unique to this highly sought-after California designer.
At Carl Blackburn we believe that our jewelry embodies a special magic. Conjured by a fusion of spirit and dedication, labor and craftsmanship, poetry and high art, it flows from the hands of our gifted artisans. It is a uniquely personal magic to which the Blackburn wearer is heir, and one that will be passed down through generations.
