Yardley, PA—Jewelers Tom and Suzanne Foster were very busy during the pandemic lockdowns earlier this year. Like many retail businesses in Pennsylvania, their store, T. Foster & Co., in Bucks County, was closed for two months. But instead of binge-watching television, Tom Foster created The Together Series, a new collection of diamond and gemstone jewelry set in 18k white or yellow gold. All the stones are responsibly sourced and each piece is locally made and signed by T. Foster & Co.
The Bucks Local News spoke to the Fosters about the collection, which features four individual designs: harmony, unity, tranquility, and serenity. Image: "Serenity" motif earrings in gold, emerald, and diamond.
From the Bucks Local News:
“There is a delicate textual quality to these new pieces, design motifs in gold are clustered along with colored gemstones and diamonds to convey a feeling of coming together,” said Tim. “These are designs to be worn everyday and be celebrated, these are special pieces and will quickly become her favorite pieces to wear. There is something that speaks to the heart with this collection. See for yourself.”
The collection is easily customized with more than 40 different options, including pendants, earrings, bracelets, and rings, says the article. More of Foster's comments from the paper:
“We wanted to create something that expresses love, family and togetherness, which is what everyone is kind of feeling. Family and friends have really come together. And we wanted to express that mood that’s in our communities. That’s why all these designs have a circular pattern and little elements of them that come together.”
The Fosters also wanted to give back to their community. 15% of the purchase price of each piece in the collection benefits two local charities, The Ivins Outreach Center and St. Mary Medical Center.
