Colored Stones to Chase Away the Winter Blues

Anthony Lent Jewelry

This winter has been kind to us in New York City. But, regardless of the warmer overall temperatures and the almost non-existent snow, winter is winter. We find that adding splashes of color to our day-to-day helps fight against the winter blues. And so, we’re concentrating this month on our colored stones!

Take a peek at some of our favorite gold and colored stone pieces, and meet our new Vulcana Garnet Cluster Earrings.

Don’t worry, spring is just around the corner!

Take Flight in 2016

Anthony Lent Jewelry

Wings symbolize the pursuit of greater heights emotionally, spiritually and creatively. They can represent rising above challenges and working toward goals. As such, what better collection is there than the Anthony Lent Wings to celebrate the beginning of a new year?

Whether accented by stones, faces or other iconic Anthony Lent symbols, each winged piece in this series has a unique characteristic that is sure to hold a special meaning for its wearer. You may want to keep your wings close to your heart as an everyday reminder of resolutions for the new year and a new chapter in your life. Or perhaps your wings are better suited to dangle from your ears as a dazzling public display of personal achievement.

In dreams, wings signify a "spring cleaning of the mind," a time to take inventory of your positive thoughts, wishes, and practices and to declutter those that don't serve you well.

So, as we enter 2016, don your wings and take flight in pursuit of your best self.

Happy New Year!

In the spirit of the giving season, we have teamed up with a local charity, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, to raise funds for their cause. Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all-volunteer, all-breed dog rescue organization comprising a network of foster families and volunteers who work together to save sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from high kill, rural shelters in Southern US states and find caring homes for them.

During the month of December, all profits from the sales of our signature Die-struck Hands Penny ($25.01) will be donated to Badass Brooklyn. It is the perfect gift for the animal lovers in your life, and these keepsake pennies can be worn as charms, pendants, or keychains. They make a great addition to dog collars, too! 

We are kicking off our month-long fundraising efforts today, on #GivingTuesday. Badass has rescued, rehabilitated, and found homes for 1500 dogs to date, changing the lives of the humans who love them for the better, too. Their work is entirely powered by human generosity, so be sure to make your donation purchase today!



Luxury with a… Typeface?

Anthony Lent Jewelry

There is a little-known link between the art of the goldsmith and the art of typography. When you think about it, though, the connection is obvious. Who better to carve out of metal the precise, intricately-detailed fonts of movable type than a skilled metal-worker? Johannes Gutenberg himself started out as a goldsmith. And many of the tools of the typographer's trade—such as the punchcutters, pantrographs, and engraving machines—originated in the craft of jewelry.

Of course, these are the same tools still used by our own master goldsmith, Tony Lent, so it seemed especially fitting when we had the opportunity to collaborate with typographer Lucas Sharp and his branding agency Sharp Type. Lucas and his partners have worked on many exciting projects over the years. His past clients have included Pinterest, Zazzle, and Samsung. His typefaces have been featured far and wide, including on the cover of the New York Times Magazine and, most recently, as part of the official branding of the Hilary Clinton for President 2016 campaign.

When we approached him to design a new logotype for Anthony Lent, it was love at first sight on both sides. We loved his work. He loved ours. And so a collaboration was born. Together with his partner Chantra, he planned an entirely new look for us. Instead of a mere update to our logotype, he produced for us a series of complete, gorgeous fonts. And it's a fitting font, too.

Based on the work of the Jesuit scholar, Edward Catich, who studied the inscription on Trajan's Column in Rome, it aims to replicate in an elegant, modern form the most sublime achievement of the ancient Roman brushstroke. Catich proposed that the serif, that vestige of calligraphy preserved in so-called Roman typefaces, was not simply an imitation of letterforms perfected by expert stoneworkers following mathematical principles. Rather, the letters were first painted, then chiseled out, and then painted again. As public proclamations standing in the open air, they were designed to emphasize light and shadow for the sake of legibility.

The carving required dexterity, perhaps, but the true significance of the letters was in the way they communicated meaning through art, creating a link between text and reader by a subtle, almost invisible modification of nature. These kinds of details—easy to miss but essential to artistic integrity—are fundamental to Tony's work, as well. His pieces celebrate exactly these kinds of details, each one containing secrets of form and function that, like the Roman letters, hide in plain sight. Ask him about his "Wandering Eye" design, for example, and why its pupil is shaped like a heart, and he'll tell you that it, too, is designed to reflect light in just the right way: to put a real sparkle in a an unreal eye.

The result of Lucas' typographic talents is a series of fonts we think are instant classics, exactly the sorts of timeless masterpieces Tony himself turns out again and again. We're thrilled to be using them and to do our part to draw attention to this too-often neglected, but extremely vital art. We're also proud to introduce new logos and a new design for our website and catalogs, courtesy of Chantra.

We've been working closely for months to bring this dream to reality, a dream that began with a short email and a simple request and ended up blossoming into a new face for the brand that puts a human face on luxury. Lucas and Chantra have helped us finally give Tony's work the presentation it deserves and have reminded us that there's as much "precious metal" in the printed word as there is gold in our jewelry. You might say, they were just our type.

Enchantment Under the Stars: Explore our Celestial Collection

Anthony Lent Jewelry

The mania of the summer months is over, and we are moved to focus again on balance and routine. This autumn is shaping up to be filled with dramatic celestial activity, with numerous meteor showers, the September equinox and a Super Blood Moon in conjunction with a total lunar eclipse, to name a few of the highlights. We thought there was no better time to focus on our iconic Celestial Collection than this, in honor of cosmic balance and in celebration of the shift in seasons.

Our Celestial Collection recognizes the intimate link between human life and the heavenly bodies by which we measure it. Indeed, these suns, moons, and stars are so powerful because of how instantly recognizable they are. In the Renaissance, people did not distinguish between science and art. We pay homage to that way of thinking by presenting a series of sculptural forms that may not possess the secrets of nature, but do illustrate nature with the secrets of art. 

Humanity finds great comfort in representations of the heavenly bodies, and the Anthony Lent Celestial Collection encompasses some of our most praised work in sterling silver, 18 karat gold, and platinum, as well as the most iconic pieces we make. We welcome you to explore your favorite Celestial Collection pieces over the coming weeks and even to discover some that you may have never seen.
