With a childhood somewhere between the Caribbean and Maine, moving from a sailboat named, Ursa Major, to a house on a salt marsh, the inspirations for this work are wide and varied but always reminiscent of the stillness of the sea.
Ursa Major jewelry was started in NYC by designer, Kate Jones, in 2009. Currently based between quiet Maine and bustling New York City, all jewelry is handmade in house using the most careful eye and finest materials.... We use only recycled metals, reclaimed diamonds, and our inlay materials are sourced domestically whenever possible.
We are an intimate practice, more than a business. Founded on integrity and sustainability, not only in our products, but in all that we do. Our jewelry is as much about personal connection as it is function. Designed to be contemporary, yet timeless. Subtle, yet distinct. The definition of a modern heirloom.
Custom inquiries are always welcomed.
