Unique Gift Idea: Gilded Age Greetings...




"Gilded Age Greetings, the designers and artisans of handmade, custom luxury greeting cards considered to be the most expensive in the world, turn up the twinkle this holiday season.   Rare yellow diamonds join white diamonds, emeralds, rubies and authentic Swarovski crystals to make up the updated Grand Couture line.  The Couture line, which features all of the extravagance as the more expensive Grand Couture line without the stones, now adds Platinum to the 23k gold already used in the elaborate hand gilding.  Cards in the two Couture lines range in price from $1,000 - $5,000.


In addition to the Couture lines, the Signature Line is produced in limited editions of 250, with 5 artist proofs. Each is hand gilded and tooled in 23k gold, and is hand signed and numbered by the artist.  The Signature line ranges in price from $300 - $500.

Every Gilded Age Greeting card is created by using only the finest materials and customized in the senders own words.  These one-a-kind works of art by renowned artist and Co-founder Rosemary Buczek are actually original paintings with lush detail and lavish embellishments. True to the 15th Century techniques of a Renaissance master, Ms. Buczek paints each card on authentic calf vellum and archival papers using a palette of historical hand ground pigments such as the rich vibrant blues of Lapis Lazuli and brilliant greens of Malachite.

The tassel-bound cards are penned to order and come with three additional inserts that can be customized for heirloom giving. The cards are all presented in a beautiful black silk box with documentation and white gloves.


To enhance the exclusivity of the buying experience, an elite Greeting Concierge service is also available to organize and handle all aspects of a client’s gifting needs throughout the year

"Giving or receiving a Gilded Age Greeting this holiday season will truly be an unforgettable experience,” said company co-founder Melissa Schechter.  The unique and heartfelt qualities that a gift of this nature represents cannot be compared to that of a flat screen television or iPad.”
