Michael Hero designs, formerly a division of the Nob Hill Luxury Group, have been discontinued, according to my sources. These items will become more and more difficult to obtain as retailers' and individual sellers' supplies are depleted.

Formerly found in major high-end department stores such as Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Macy, and fine jewelry stores such as Bailey, Banks and Biddle and Zales, Michael Hero designs can best be described as "table jewelry." Michael Hero has over twenty-five years of jewelry design and manufacturing experience, and each design is a piece of art, sculpted to be admired from every angle, as the back, sides, stand and clips are as intricately finished as is the beautiful front. Every Michael Hero design is meticulously hand-crafted by carefully selected and trained artisans. Their model-maker hand carves the mold into which the items are cast in the highest quality lead-free genuine pewter. The casted items are then plated in gold, silver, brass or nickel. The design is vividly brought to life with custom-blended pigments that are hand-mixed and hand-applied.
Michael Hero items are "Crystallized with Swarovski", the world leader in cut crystal since the 19th century. Every stone and crystal is individually hand-set to rigorous specifications ensuring the highest quality creations. Every crystal in the Michael Hero Collection is a genuine Swarovski crystal. Michael Hero has a quality branding license agreement allowing the items to carry the prestigious "Crystallized with Swarovski" label, featured on the back cover of the romance story card, included with each item, unless otherwise stated in the listing.
