May’s Birthstone – The Emerald

May 1, 2014 @ 1:22 pm

So, we pretty much think that emeralds are among the most beautiful things the earth has ever created. Known for their rich and sensual color, these green gems even have a pretty word for their natural “flaws,” jardin, which is the French for “garden,” because the inclusions tend to resemble plant foliage.

We hope you enjoy this choice selection of our fine emerald jewelry.

Custom Pink Sapphire and Diamond Wedding Band

April 26, 2014 @ 11:40 am

Carrie, one of our favorite long time friends and customers, is getting married in May. Her fiancé, Dan, had a lovely engagement ring made in New York, incorporating a family stone. For the wedding band, though, Carrie had her own ideas.

Having given a lot of thought to the idea, she approached us in February of 2014 and gave us a short list of requirements for her wedding band. She wanted it 3mm in width (the same as the band of her engagement ring), she wanted it to be 18K yellow gold, she wanted it to have pale pink stones with diamonds, and she wanted it to look free-flowing and interesting. The last thing she wanted was for her band to look like a “rigid, straight line.”

We met with our designer and, bearing Carrie’s requests in mind, came up with what you see now. A custom made 18K yellow gold band, 3mm in width, with pale pink sapphires and diamonds of various sizes.

Carrie came in at the beginning of April, picked up the ring, and fell in love. We got a message from her a week later that said, “I’m in love with my ring! It’s so pretty. You made all my dreams come trueeeee!”

Hall and Oates would be so proud.

Spotlight on April’s Birthstone: Diamond

April 18, 2014 @ 12:58 pm

Those lucky enough to have been born in April have the diamond for a birthstone. Coming in all shapes, sizes, and colors, diamonds have long been celebrated for their durability. The hardest stone on the Mohs Scale, it’s the perfect rock for an engagement ring because of its longevity.

The Crescent Ring

April 16, 2014 @ 2:28 pm

Based on an Art Deco original, The Crescent Ring is one of our own creations. A 1.18 ct Old European Cut diamond is held in place by split prongs and flanked on either side by a crescent moon of diamonds. This particular ring is in 14K white gold, but we can make it in yellow gold or platinum and with any stone of your choosing.

Paul K. – 18K Rose Gold with Diamond Halo

April 14, 2014 @ 12:56 pm

Paul came into the shop in March of 2014 wanting to reset a family stone available to him. He knew his girlfriend liked rose gold and that she was a fan of the “halo” design. After a thirty minute discussion, we presented him with photographs of designs and he chose his mounting.

Two weeks later, when the mounting arrived, we had the stone set for him and presented his ring to him the day before he planned to propose. He was enamored. In fact, his exact words were, “Wow. It’s more beautiful than I ever imagined it would be.”

He sent us a message the next day saying that he had popped the question during a hot air balloon ride (she said yes!) and when they landed — to her surprise — both families were there to greet them. What a sweet story!

Hannah C. – Bezel Set Green Family Stone

April 14, 2014 @ 12:55 pm

Hannah is a longtime customer and friend of ours, and she inherited a green foil back rhinestone from her mother’s side of the family. The stone has a lot of meaning to her, and though she thought it “ridiculous,” it was important to her to put the stone in a mounting all her own.

We worked with our designer and agreed on a sturdy, gold matte finished bezel-set mounting with a .10ct diamond on each side of the stone. The result was stunning, and she could not have been happier.
