Harley-Davidson Jewelry by TM

Harley-Davidson (H-D or Harley; NYSE: HOG) is an American motorcycle manufacturer founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1903. Harley-Davidson sells heavyweight (750cc plus) motorcycles designed for cruising on the open road.

The Harley-Davidson brand, image and logo are recognized worldwide, and the motorcycles are especially known for their distinct design and exhaust note. The classic Harley-Davidson engines are two-cylinder, V-twin engines with the pistons mounted in a 45 degree "V". Whether true or not, Harley-Davidson motorcycles has long been associated with the sub-cultures of bikers, motorcycle clubs and outlaw bikers.

For the last century, Harley-Davidson has not offered or licensed its brand to a successful, ongoing, high-end, designer biker jewelry collection...until now. We've seen a few designers come and go with very small collections of H-D jewelry. Leave it to Thierry Martino to bring on the first gen of H-D rebel luxury silver. For all of you that have been waiting for classy, badass jewelry to wear when riding, wait no more! No more looking to cheap junky silver H-D jewelry on eBay for your needs, because you should be riding with style!

Harley-Davidson Jewelry is passionately dedicated to the legendary Harley-Davidson motorcycles and designed by Thierry Martino, a French artist and avid biker. Thierry Martino is well-known in the world of silver jewelry fashion for his luxury accessory brand, SoulFetish.

Riding his first 1200 Sportster in the late 1980's, Martino began to carve his very first pieces of wax only a few years later. His jewelry has always been inspired by the biker way of life:

"Silver jewelry and Harleys are inseparable. There is no biker in the world without a silver ring. I've always created my own silver jewels because I wanted them to have the same spirit and quality as my Harley."

Every jewelry piece is made in-house and Martino maintains a close eye, over the entire artistic and metallurgical handmade process, to ensure that all pieces of jewelry meet his high quality standards. All Harley-Davidson Jewelry by TM is designed and crafted by bikers for bikers.
