    Elizabeth Gage: London-based designer and virtuoso goldsmith Elizabeth Gage is one of the most influential jewelers of the late 20th century. She is an artist who rose to prominence in the 1970s through a characteristic use of colored gems, now her signature. Her distinctively bold gold and gem set jewels often include ancient artifacts and baroque pearls; many are one-of-a-kind treasures. Elizabeth Gage inspired and influenced jewelers by bringing elements of the past into a contemporary form.
