Scottsdale Jeweler Gauthier Opens Online Store (And Lets Us Poke Around His Workshop)

"Wear Art" is the tagline of Scottsdale's Jewelry by Gauthier, which recently launched an online store full of its sparkly wares and, come August, will have another physical outpost in Santa Barbara.

"Sign us up," we thought as we entered the arts district store for a tour of Scott Gauthier's studio, located in the back of the shop, to ooh and aaah over his rare gem collection and take a look at how he conceptualizes and builds by hand his unique, sculptural pieces.
