Beauty. Quality. Style. Eco-friendly.
The BEAUTY of our jewelry stands alone! Each design starts out as a simple idea set to paper and then becomes a tangible work of art. We hand pick the most visually appealing gems such as simulated diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, in addition to using precious and semi-precious gems to be mounted in our pieces. Each one of the pearls in our "Our Pearl Collection" is natural and hand chosen by Carl himself for its beauty, quality and appropriate size. Our styles and designs are created to reflect the modern appeal of the times. Our Deco-era styles reflect the memories and ambiance of a bygone time.
Using only the finest QUALITY 99.9 "pure" silver, Fine 92.5 Sterling silver and/or nine Karat -"9 kt "gold in our pieces, we offer true, long lasting wearability for years to come. The laboratories that grow our gems, monitor and augment the purity and color of the material processed and then select only the finest material to be used. Our cutters then artfully and skillfully cut, facet and polish the gems to reflect the optimal light dispersion (shine). You will not only see but feel the quality!
STYLE changes throughout time. Carl Tanner Designs stays current with today's changing flair on style. We offer not only today's conception of modern styles and ideas but also incorporate an element of nostalgia and simplicity. Whatever your style may be, we are confident that you will be able to find and fall in love with one of our pieces to make it your own!
We pride ourselves on being an ECO-FRIENDLY company. Do you know that for each natural emerald harvested, an acre of earth has to be uprooted? To mine natural diamonds, 1,750 tons of earth and ore is moved and/or destroyed to produce 1.0 carat of rough diamond! Animals, trees, plants and our ecosystem is disrupted or destroyed for human gain.
So called “conflict-free” Canadian diamond mines are often built in environmentally fragile ecosystems, have significant ecological footprints, and will significantly impact upon the caribou, wolverine, bears, ptarmigan, and fish which provide food for Aboriginal peoples. These are just a few of the reasons our company offers eco-friendly jewelry creations.
Another wonderful reason we are an eco-conscious jewelry company is that it allows us to offer you, our friends, our customers, the best price anyone can offer on custom crafted jewelry designs. Lab-grown or lab-created gems are up to twenty times less expensive than naturally mined stones and are almost always more attractive and visually appealing than their natural counterparts.
