Ed Spencer, jewelry designer and owner of Skylight Jewelers, has been creating custom jewelry in Boston for over 40 years. His original shop featured a skylight which was the inspiration for the business name. That shop was located on the top floor of the jewelers building, just around the corner from where the store is today. Although the store no longer has a view of the stars, if you look up from inside the showroom you might catch a glimpse of our jewelers working in the loft upstairs.
‘Education is unceasing. In the arts, experimenting and risk-taking are the keys to development.’
Spencer’s custom jewelry designs reflect his belief that jewelry is a personal statement about its wearer. The inspiration for a piece might comes from his dreams, or day-to-day reality. He designs each custom engagement ring and piece of fine jewelry three-dimensionally. He builds frontward, backwards, inside and out, keeping in mind the person who will choose and wear the finished jewel.
‘Finely designed jewelry should speak for itself, expressing, as any work of art, an energy of vision and soundness of the artist’s craft.’
