A note to our many friends and customers
McTeigue & McClelland, the company that created internationally renowned, handmade jewelry in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts is now closed.
It is difficult to describe how meaningful this journey has been for us. To have the opportunity to work with some of the world's most talented and dedicated people, to befriend our clients, to be a part of this special cultural community where we raised our families.
Customers from all over North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia have sojourned to Mc2 specifically to purchase our unique designs. Over the years we sold our designs in the jewelry departments of Bergdorf Goodman, Shreve Crump & Low, Gump's, Barney's New York and Tiny Jewel Box.
Many jewelry writers and fashion editors own and wear our jewelry, particularly our Wildflower Engagement rings. We developed each and every piece using the very finest materials. Every gemstone was scrutinized surpassing for beauty and quality. Nothing but the very best made it past Walter. We created our designs from scratch using traditional, labor intensive techniques.
We employed and trained incredibly talented, master jewelers.Tim frequently invented entirely new methods for creating his designs. There have been dozens of patents, copyrights and proprietary technologies that are associated with our jewelry.
It has been our pleasure to serve you, to do something fun and different each and every day, and to show the world what can spring from independence, a creative commitment and hard work. We know we will see many of you as we begin the next chapters in what must be the most beautiful business on earth. Thank you for everything thus far.
