“Plus Ultra", from Magnus Studios
These are the newest items from the Plus Ultra Product line from Douglas Magnus. This line features proprietary jewelry technology and a unique "look' that's modern in sensibility, but reflects a strong heritage from the early Spaniards in New Mexico and the southwest.
New Mexico "100" Collection
William Taft, a Republican was President of the United States when Congress admitted New Mexico as the 47th state in the Union on January 6, 1912. The admission of the neighboring State of Arizona on February 14, 1912 completed the contiguous 48 states.
The New Mexico "100" are Sterling Silver or Gold and made entirely by hand in Santa Fe using ancient techniques.
The Primal Diamond Collection
The intrinsic motif throughout the Primal Diamond Collection is the Rustic Diamonds. Rustic diamonds are unadulterated diamonds just as they are found in nature. No two alike, their extreme uniqueness reflects the Individuality of the One.
The Primal Diamonds are embedded into Sterling Silver or Gold by hand using ancient techniques. These diamonds are not traditionally 'set' so much as 'captured' in precious time and space. Gold may be added to the pieces and embossed with significant symbols such as 'Infinity', meaning 'Forever.
This "capturing" process is under further development by Doug, and is considered a proprietary process by Magnus Studios. While many jewelers may use rustic diamonds, Magnus Studios has developed several unique process steps in the "capture" technique.
