Ornamental ironwork in the 18th and 19th centuries reflected the influence of blacksmiths who forged art in the gates, grilles and balconies throughout the country. This delicate filigree design, once forged in iron, represents a legacy that continues through the presence of iron gates in cities and towns across the country and around the globe. It is this Ornamental ironwork that has inspired Southern Gates® Jewelry. Preserved in fine sterling silver jewelry, the Southern Gates® Collection represents a timeless tradition that any woman can wear.
