Recreating a Customer’s Stolen Ring
November 16, 2016 @ 4:30 pm
A gentleman bought a ring from us this summer, and two weeks after he got it, the ring was stolen. He immediately got in touch and asked us to re-make the ring, because his fiancée loved the design. We hate that the original ring was taken, but were happy to oblige!
A New Life for Grandma’s Art Deco Brooch

Trust me, we hated to break this up — but seeing the face of the client when she was presented with her rings eased the pain. Pieces of grandma’s beautiful Art Deco emerald and diamond brooch can now be found on three of her granddaughters’ fingers.
Custom Pale Blue Star Sapphire with Family Diamonds in White Gold
April 6, 2016 @ 12:50 pm
Luisa and Terry came in and wanted complimentary, but not matching, engagement rings. Terry fell in love with one of our rings: a beautiful star ruby with diamonds in yellow gold. Luisa wanted something different but in the same vein.
She fell in love with a loose, creamy, pale blue star sapphire that we had and Terry had inherited a watch with some diamonds in it that she wanted implemented into the ring. So, we went to work.
Using jewelry-specific CAD software, we knew the sapphire was going to be bezel set, and we knew that Luisa wanted a matte white gold construction. So, measuring the provided diamonds and deciding to flush (gypsy) set them into the shank, we came up with a design we thought Luisa would like.
Then, we rendered it and sent her the images for her approval.
Luisa gave us the go-ahead, and we sent it to casting and then ultimately to the jeweler, who set the stones and finished the mounting. Below is the finished product, which Luisa absolutely loved!

Custom Pearl Engagement Ring in Yellow Gold with Diamonds
October 1, 2015 @ 2:26 pm
Chad and Sarah came in after two previous jewelers had over-promised and under-delivered. They were frustrated, stuck with a ring they did not like, and running out of time… their wedding was just six weeks away.
They requested a pearl in the center of a custom designed yellow gold swirl of diamonds, and provided a couple of photos for inspiration. We delivered the ring today, just two days before their wedding, and they were relieved and ecstatic with the end result. We’re so happy we could help… and congratulations!
Another Custom London Blue Topaz Ring!

Apparently, London Blue Topaz is #trending. A nice young man came in a couple of weeks ago and said he wanted a Deco style ring with a London blue topaz. That means “time to make it custom!” He picked from our selection of Art Deco style mountings and we ordered him a custom cut stone. It turned out lovely, don’tchyathink?

We have a client who’s in love with London blue topaz. She saw this fancy cut one and immediately fell in love. The problem was, she needed something to put it in. She and our designer got to work and we ultimately ended up with this lovely, organic 18K yellow gold mounting accented with blue zircons.

Spectacular Repurposing of Mom’s Dated Cluster Ring
June 20, 2015 @ 1:50 pm
A client from Kentucky who found us here (hi, Patti!) had a cluster ring of her mother’s that wasn’t her style. She loved one of our yellow gold mountings and asked if we could set the diamond cluster top into it. Sure we could! It turned out lovely and she nearly cried when she put it on.
