(CHARLESTON, S.C.) - Jewelry design and wholesale firm, The Cargo Hold, Inc., is introducing a new series from their best-selling Southern Gates® Collection in a licensing partnership with Biltmore. This limited six-piece release features sterling silver jewelry inspired by the historic architecture and exquisite craftsmanship of Biltmore in Asheville, NC.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Biltmore on this new line of jewelry. With shared appreciation for history, design, and tradition, Biltmore and the Southern Gates® Collection are a natural fit,” explains Tom Young, President of The Cargo Hold, Inc. “Biltmore offers an endless source of inspiration for jewelry design, and we look forward to sharing new jewelry styles with Biltmore guests and Southern Gates® collectors throughout the years.”
Biltmore Jewelry by Southern Gates® pays tribute to the vision of George Vanderbilt and the artisans that helped bring his masterpiece to life. The first six pieces introduced in sterling silver are inspired by a variety of elements that showcase the craftsmanship within the estate. From fine details found in the exterior stonework, to grand wood carvings seen across ceilings inside the home, the initial six styles are just the beginning of a growing jewelry collection inspired by the elegant and intriguing details of America’s Largest Home®.
Sterling silver necklaces and earrings will make up the first Biltmore-inspired jewelry collection. Each piece will be cast in 925 sterling silver ensuring these special treasures will last for generations. With Southern Gates® signature delicate designs, the series will expand into bracelets, rings, and much more as this heirloom collection continues to grow.
“The combination of classic design and extraordinary attention to detail in the Biltmore jewelry collection is quite impressive,” shares Tim Rosebrock, Vice President and GM, Biltmore Licensed Products. “The Cargo Hold’s long-standing success in jewelry design and quality, coupled with outstanding customer service, makes them the perfect partner for our new endeavor in this category.”
