  • Gibeon Meteorite Jewelry - A Long Journey

    The Ferber family is full of astronomy lovers, so it is no surprise that one of our favorite products is our meteorite jewelry. Many of our meteorite pendants are made from one of the most famous meteorite discoveries of all time, the Gibeon meteorite from Namibia, Africa. It is amazing to think about the long journey that these pieces have taken, and now we get to help find them new homes!

  • Religious Art of Ethiopia's Coptic Christians

    At Ferbers we like to use jewelry as a vehicle to explore far-off places and interesting cultures. One of our favorite collections is our Ethiopian Coptic Crosses. In the West we may not be very familiar with the Coptic Christians, but their history is rich and their influence in Africa is considerable.

  • South Sea Pearls

    Australia has been the main source for the world’s largest and most valuable pearls since the 1800’s. These famous South Sea pearls are the product of the world’s largest pearl producing oyster, the Pinctada Maxima.

    South Sea cultured pearls normally range from 10 to 15 millimeters, with very rare examples reaching 20 millimeters. Only cultured pearls from the Pinctada Maxima oyster have the beautiful color tones known as “orient” with shades ranging from white to silver pink to dark gold. Australian oysters and ocean conditions produce the largest and finest quality pearls in the world.

  • Tahitian Black Pearls

    Different varieties of oysters produce different colors of pearls.  Practically all of the pearls in the world are harvested from just three species of oysters: the Japanese Akoya, the South Sea pearl oyster, and the Tahitian black pearl oyster. Only the black-lipped oyster cultivated in Tahiti and the surrounding islands produces a black pearl.

  • Esquel Meteorite Jewelry

    In the small town of Esquel, Argentina in 1951 a campesino was digging a watering hole for his livestock when he came across one of the most spectacular meteorites ever discovered. Named for the town where it was found, the Esquel meteorite was sold to an American collector, and since has been separated into smaller specimens like those found on our website.
