Two years ago I penned 36 things every man should do before dying, on the list was to create your own piece of jewelry. With the birth of my daughter I decided to add one more piece to the short list of items that I’d like to pass on to her long after I’m gone. I decided to have commissioned a bracelet from Comstock Heritage.
I was initially introduced to Comstock Heritage while at Axel’s in Vail Colorado, one of the exclusive shops to carry Comstock Heritage products. I eventually had a chance to interview James Stegman, president of Comstock Heritage. While Italian brands continue to promote craftsmanship, great quality and tradition, I must say I have yet to find an American brand that exemplifies that idea more than the oldest Western Silversmith shop in America. The difference between this and some of the best Italian product I’ve had the opportunity to come across is that the backbone of Comstock Heritage is 100% Americana. If you associate America with rebellious undertones and adventurous spirit, this brand and its product is a true example of American work at its finest.
Comstock Heritage is best known for its belt buckles that are second to none. Be it the hand engraved silver belt buckles (starting around $700), sterling silver and gold pieces (around $2,700 ), or the solid gold pieces ( up to $39, 000) there is no compromise in quality, or dedication, no two pieces are exactly alike as each item is handmade. Add bracelets and a few other silver accessories to their inventory and you have a gold mine (literally and figuratively) on and in your hands.
For my bracelet I decided on a sterling silver and rose gold detailed bracelet with as much detail as a watch with the most complex movement.
Without question this is not my last piece from Comstock Heritage ( I have my eye on one of the belt buckles, and be it a bespoke suit or off the rack, the little details are always what make the difference in the end.)
