John Ruff Jewelry

John Ruff has been designing and making jewelry since leaving graduate studies in microbiology in 1972. His wife Carolyn joined him in this endeavor in 1977.

We retired from art fairs in 2020. Our remaining pieces can be seen in the Memphis Metal Museum gift shop. Most pieces are pictured on the online gift shop which can be found here: Metal Museum: Ruff Goldsmiths
