Just a short drive from John S. Brana's home in San Francisco, Sonoma County waits to be discovered. There, acres upon acres of vineyards dot the landscape, and wineries of all sizes produce vintages that are enjoyed around the world.
The unique beauty of the region is truly unparalleled by anywhere else in the world, and these lovely landscapes have inspired an equally beautiful line of fine gemstone jewelry--the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry Sonoma Collection.
Wearing a chain maille sterling silver or 14K gold-fill necklace dripping with cascades of luscious berry-like gemstones is like touring the your favorite tasting rooms of California’s valley wineries in summertime. Care for a glass of earthy zinfandel? Try a set of gold chain maille necklace, earrings and bracelet embellished with garnets of the deepest maroon. Prefer a buttery chardonnay? Treat your eyes to a sumptuous cluster of amber and gold pearls. Perhaps a breezy pinot gris is more to your liking? Then dress up in serpentine gemstones on a sterling silver chain. Whichever varietal you long for, the Sonoma Collection is sure to delight your discerning palate. (Press and Celebrity Photos)
