Chatham

In 1938 after many years of research and determination, Carroll F. Chatham, a San Francisco scientist, discovered the secret of growing emeralds. By duplicating conditions deep within the earth (the proper temperature, pressure and chemical properties) he was actually able to grow gems in his laboratory that possess the same physical and optical properties of mined gems. A discover so amazing, it remains a carefully guarded family secret. In the years since that historic discovery, Chatham Created Gems, now under the direction of Carroll’s son Tom, has perfected methods of growing rubies, sapphires, alexandrites and opals. For over 60 years Chatham has been the leader in the art & science of Created Gems.

Frederic Duclos

Duclos is an award winning French designer of contemporary sterling and sterling and 14 karat combinations of jewelry and gifts. The Company was created under the guidance of Karen and Frederic Duclos in 1984.

Frederic Duclos grew up in Southeastern France, where for several generations, his family has been designing accessories. In his mind, sculpture was limitless, but controlling size and balance to create individual jewelry pieces became his passion. Karen, at eighteen and a junior at the University of California, had started a wholesale jewelry and accessories business.

After meeting Frederic, they decided that there was a market demand for high quality, creative sterling jewelry. For 23 years, Frederic has presented collections that reflect sensuality and femininity with a twist of reality. The numerous awards he has received throughout the years always encourages him to create fresh, new concepts.

Heroes Cross

Nina Cusanelli’s mission is to produce works of art and beauty that raise funds for good causes. While contemplating designs, the cross emerged as the central theme and thus Nina Cusanelli’s first product line was created - HEROES CROSS. For many, the cross is the most powerful symbol of love, courage, sacrifice and ultimately, of redemption and thus is a fitting symbol to represent our Heroes. In addition, Heroes Cross sets out to provide meaningful, tangible support for organizations that either directly provide for or, in some way, commemorate these Heroes. To fulfill this mission, Nina Cusanelli is the proud sponsor of the Art for a Cause Foundation (AFACF) . AFACF has established The Heroes Fund that donates to selected charities that help or commemorate our Heroes. Nina Cusanelli LLC contributes 10% of its revenues from all purchases to the AFACF Heroes Fund.
