The Woods Fine Jewelry
Growing up in Boulder in the 70’s and spending summers is Aspen, sisters Shawn Hecox and Samantha Hitchcock were always surrounded by incredible beauty. In 2005 Shawn left a successful position at a women’s fashion manufacturer in San Francisco and Sam left as buyer for a luxury retailer to found The Woods Fine Jewelry. During the initial year in Aspen, The Woods Fine Jewelry immediately found its footing amongst an international clientele. The sisters still find inspiration in many of these amazing women.
The sister’s love of contrast, vintage/modern, rough/smooth, precious/unfussy, informs the often bespoke designs. Natural components, stones, and precious gems are staples. Mixing metals, unique combinations, and texture and layering often result in a more-is-more, statement look.
Stylish yet elegant, the modern-retro inspired Chronomat Automatic 36 is the versatile sporty and chic watch for any occasion. Retail $8,650
