Steven Kretchmer has been called the most visible innovator of American jewelry. Often referred to as Jewelry’s “Mad Scientist,” Steven developed new special precious metal processes, and the company holds patents for precious metal product inventions and alloys. Kretchmer’s Tension Set Diamond rings seem to defy gravity, suspending diamonds and gemstones in the band. Held in place by pressure and special alloys, the central stone is unobstructed. Kretchmer’s latest innovation, POLARIUM, is a revolutionary magnetized platinum alloy that brings a new dimension to fine jewelry. The two halves of the Inner Secrets band are drawn together by the intense force of Polarium, hiding personal engravings or diamond accents on the inside. His developments and use of unique precious metals, displayed in ageless designs with diamonds and gems, have added new dimensions to the art of jewelry.
