Welcome to Distinctive Collections and our exciting TREASURES OF TRAVEL!

Our worldwide travels have inspired us to offer you, the discerning client, these classically elegant brooches -- the first in a series of four. These intricate brooches utilize the “lost-wax” process, the origins of which are shrouded in antiquity. Lost-wax casting is the most precise metal-casting process in existence to produce very high relief and exquisite detail, as you will see, and has been in use for thousands of years.

In addition to brooches for the ladies, we have included “Jack-In-The-Box” which will surely appeal to the elite male population. “Jack” is comprised of ten (10) separate lost-wax castings to achieve his incredible mystique. Realize the fantasy with this captivating and masterfully sculpted bronze -- our first offering in a series of three -- of TIMELESS TREASURES.

We trust you will find these pieces to be truly timeless and priceless and that you, too, will share in our enthusiasm. As our name implies, Distinctive Collections is committed to superior quality, meticulous detail and, of course, your ultimate satisfaction.
