The Empire Strikes Back!

John Benjamin Hickey
Wearing The Empire Bracelet
We're so proud that our Empire Bracelet from the Egyptian Collection will be worn by Emmy nominee John Benjamin Hickey. The Empire Bracelet was prominently displayed at the 2013 GBK Primetime Emmy Gift Lounge, when John saw the copper version he fell in love with it! Displays generally don't leave the exhibit, but we always make exceptions for our favorite celebs. :) His quote to the representative from The Artisan Group was "I love these bracelets! Wow! This is fantastic! It goes great with my watch. I will absolutely wear this all the time!" We love hearing from our customers who tell us how happy they are with our handcrafted gems. In this case – The Empire strikes back!
