Kerrie, another of our favorite longtime customers, had a pair of her father’s cufflinks that she wasn’t using and wanted to repurpose. The stones were vintage, foilbacked lemon colored rhinestones, and she wanted to make a ring. Asking that we use Hayden Panettiere’s engagement ring as an inspiration, away we went!
Using white topaz in place of diamond, we designed this ring, with a traditional split shank, in 14K rose gold. Her response, “Oh my God, it’s GORGEOUS! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

If you’re in the market for a large, exceptional stone, you’ve met your match. This diamond weighs 4.23 carats and is an Old Mine Cut (an old cut which predates the modern round brilliant). It’s a light fancy yellow color, and VS1 clarity (for the lay, that means clean as a whistle). It’s set in platinum and flanked by four diamonds weighing a collective .27ct. Total carat weight? A whopping 4 and a half carats. This ring is available by appointment only.

Barbara came in at the beginning of the year with a girlfriend, and when she found out that we did custom design, she said, “I’ve always liked the ring my friend’s wearing, could you make me something similar?” Her girlfriend was wearing a large, smoky topaz ring set in sterling silver. Barbara, however, wanted a citrine set in 14K yellow gold.
We got to work. After an initial series of sketches, we sent Barbara some renderings. She said what she did and didn’t like about each set, and we agreed upon the design. A few short weeks after the design was agreed on, the ring came back from the designer.
Barbara carefully examined it from every angle (she designs homes, and obsesses over lines) and finally said, “I know you probably can’t tell, because I’m so analytical, but I am in love with this ring! I’ve dreamt about this ring for 20 years and can’t tell you how excited I am that I finally have it!”)

We just acquired what is, in our minds, the perfect deco ring. With enough diamond weight to say, “hey, big guy,” while still maintaining a low profile, the perfect filigree work on the shank just sends us. The center stone is a 1 ct H-I color SI1 clarity Transition cut diamond, and the ring itself is made of platinum. The best part? It can be yours.

Elizabeth, who got her engagement ring from us in 2005, came in one day and asked, “Do you guys have any loose stones?” We showed her what we had, and having an affinity for vivid colors, she immediately fell in love with a large, oval cut pink tourmaline. She said, “I want this stone. Will you guys make me a mounting for it?”
We’d like to say we immediately went to work, but we didn’t — Elizabeth did. The next week included a lot of e-mails back and forth and culminated with Elizabeth walking in with approximately 30 printouts of rings she found and liked online. We decided on a classic diamond adorned split shank design with split prongs in white gold. She wanted the side of the ring to be carved, giving it an interesting texture.
We documented nearly every step of the journey: wax casting, metal casting, diamond setting, and the finished product.
