I was wondering if anyone could recommend any stores/sites that sell designer, high-end, beautiful jewelry made of sterling silver. Beautiful craftsmanship is a must.

I would love to find a nice piece but the market seems to be invaded with lower-end, too causal, or plain unsightly silver jewelry. E-Bay is hardly any help.

Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

Sure - but it has become so popular, it feels a bit cliche/generic.
I remember seeing in some jewelry magazines some amazing advertising for high craftsmanship sterling silver jewelry but it looks like such pieces are hard to come by.

I am also interested in good Israeli designers, if anyone knows any.

Yes, thanks. Hope you and the family are well.

If I win the lotto, my spending spree will be at the Heard. They sell the best of the best of Native American jewelry and art. Their buyers buy directly from the artists and many of their pieces are museum quality.

The market is flooded with Chinese-made knockoff pieces. Should you decide to purchase Indian jewelry, be aware of that.

Powwows and "Indian shows" (think craft fairs with NA sellers) are a good place to buy directly from the artists. If that's something that interests you, google Powwow and the name of your state/city. They are open to everyone and many sellers will haggle on the price. Indian-made sand cast silver jewelry is, IMO, especially beautiful.
