Moms know what we don’t tell, but sisters know what we do. Our sisters are the best friends in the world. You might have had few squabbles when you were younger, but the most embarrassing moments, most confidential secrets, the saddest heartbreaks and the happiest times are what we have shared with nobody else but our sisters. Heath and Landon Slane of Slane
Jewelry can attest to that.
Originally from High Point, North Carolina, sisters Heath and Landon Slane began designing jewelry when they could not find fine, high-end, sterling silver jewelry. They felt that beautiful silver, in felt-lined cases, was being passed down from generation to generation, but, at that time, silver jewelry was mostly an afterthought. Today, Slane & Slane is creating the heirlooms of tomorrow by adding a modern twist on classic and elegant themes.
Landon’s influences for love of travel greatly affect the designs in Slane jewelry. Having a background in film and television, she is always in quest for aesthetic beauty. The clean lines in every Slane piece is noted to be inspired by the classic architectures and designs Landon have seen in her travel. She emphasizes that the simpler the jewelry, the more beautiful it becomes.
While Landon has a background in film and television, Heath Slane is an expert in fashion photography, no wonder why there is an emblem of fine balance and measured proportions in every Slane piece. It all started in her 16th birthday when she was given the opportunity to design her own ring as a birthday gift which made her to think about jewelry in a new way.
With artistic backgrounds, Landon and Heath’s insights and influences work well in fine sterling jewelry. So well that their designs have given birth to fifteen collections and numerous line expansions for ten years of constant design and flourished into a great deal of customers and loyal patrons.
Among these exquisite collections, the Slane & Slane Bee collection is the most adored of the collections. The Bee is inspired by the Napoleonic symbol of wisdom, strength and nobility.
The Voltaire collection is also an outstanding Slane choice of jewelry. This sterling silver and citrine ring is from Slane's Voltaire Collection. The ring features a 14mm square citrine surrounded by classic Column beading and secured by classic Column ribbed prongs. The ring is a size 7. Behold the elegance and alluring appeal of its beaded edges that bring out the unique design of this ring that will make you trend in any red carpet event.
Every woman's jewelry box must have a stunning pair of stud earrings. Slane's Voltaire Collection features these vibrant genuine blue topaz stud earrings in sterling silver and Slane's exclusive ravishing 8mm Emerald Cut Blue Topaz Earrings. These earrings feature sterling silver beaded edges and lever backs. Slane makes their jewelry in recycled sterling silver so it is not only fashionable and elegant but also eco-friendly.
Some of Slane’s finest collections are the Seapod, the Column Bellus, the superb Signature Collection, and their fabulous pearl collections. The Slane sisters have created a look that gorgeously blend with the outfits of every woman wherever she goes, day or night.
“Jewelry has always played an important role in my life. My mother and grandmother wear beautiful pieces, and Heath and I were both given the opportunity at 16 years old to select a stone and design a piece of jewelry for ourselves. Jewelry is how we celebrate the milestones of life,” says Landon when asked about the inspiration behind Slane.
“Heath lives in Los Angeles, and I am in New York, so we don’t work together on a day-to-day basis, but it’s bizarre how much we think alike. We have design summits six or eight times a year, and once I had an idea for a new piece and before I could tell Heath about it, she began talking about the same idea!” she adds.
Heath and Landon Slane design jewelry for the modern and intellectual women with a great appreciation for style. This desire to own sterling silver jewelry that mirrored the same quality as the quality of women, led sisters Heath and Landon Slane to create what they could not find in the world of designer jewelry. Slane begins with a vision, a vision to create exceptional jewelry that would make a statement and please even the toughest critics. Because it is often given for special occasions and celebrations, jewelry is usually an emotional purchase, the Slane sister's believe that jewelry is the most precious gift you can give to others and yourself. With this in mind, each Slane piece is perfectly crafted to soothe the soul and to uplift the spirit.
