EMILY SATLOFF, Larkspur & Hawk's founder, has married 18th century techniques with a thoroughly modern sensibility, designing jewels with a timeless beauty. A lifelong scholar of art and design, Emily's graduate studies in decorative arts at both Sotheby's and the Cooper-Hewitt led to her career as a curator at The New-York Historical Society and a curatorial consultant for The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Working in decorative arts gave Emily an intimate knowledge of and deep appreciation for historical objects, spanning a breadth of periods and media only available in a museum setting. Her first collection debuted in 2008 and quickly became a favorite of the world's most discerning women. The rivière, a continuous river of stones that flows around one's neck, and a staple of Georgian jewelry, has become one of Larkspur & Hawk's signatures.
