This post is dedicated to what are often the first signs of spring, besides the buds, blooms, and allergies….BUGS!

We take care of the menfolk, too. We recently made this men’s wedding band in 18K yellow gold, with a custom cut shield shaped ruby gypsy set into the band.

So we just made this gorgeous emerald cut diamond engagement ring… and thought we’d share it with you.

Gail had a lovely little ring of her Mother’s that had an aquamarine colored paste stone in it, and she wanted to find something that was more her. As it turns out, diamonds are more her. We went on the hunt for a diamond that would fit the mounting, and a three carat emerald cut would do the trick.
We think it’s heavenly.

Heather’s a client of ours whom we’ve never met. She found us through our Etsy store and we’ve made three custom pieces for her. Here’s the latest.
Heather sent us a picture of this ring (below) and said “I found this online. I love the style. Could you do something similar in diamonds?” Of course we could.
Some people would call us hoarders — we prefer preservationists. We happened to have a lovely old Victorian bypass mounting kicking around the shop. We also happened to have two diamonds which would fit perfectly in the mounting. It was important to her that the diamonds be Old European cut, and these fit the bill.
The ring came back today, and boy is it stunning! A genuinely old mounting… with genuinely old diamonds… you’d never know the ring was put together in 2015.

This collection of turn of the century Victorian fobs, pendants, and necklaces, is a small sampling of our selection of fine antique jewelry.

Surrounded by a halo of sapphires and diamonds, an approximately quarter carat Old European Cut diamond is bezel set in 14K white gold. Three small diamonds go down the top of the shank, and the band itself is petite (2mm). Would make an excellent engagement ring; it sits low to the hand but has plenty of presence. Available on West End and online at Etsy.

Zach came in this past summer looking for mountings for his then girlfriend’s engagement ring. He had his own diamond, and needed to find the perfect setting for it. He fell in love with one of our hand made Art Deco style mountings, but what he didn’t like was the color of the metal. Art Deco jewelry was practically always white, and he and his girlfriend had their heart set on yellow.
So we went to work!
We presented the mounting to Zach, made in 18K yellow gold, and he fell in love. We got an email about a week ago, with pictures, saying that he popped the question and she said *drumroll* YES! We’re so happy for them, and we’re especially happy to have found them the perfect ring!
