The Life of a Ring

Thus the story goes: boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy proposes to girl, boy gets engagement ring, girl gets wedding ring, girl gets more jewelry and more jewelry. I have the pleasure of being in Maui this week for my best friend’s wedding and her lovely hubby-to-be commissioned a wedding gift from me a couple months ago. Here is a behind the scenes look at commission to creation.
I start with a design and sketch of the ring, then a wax mold is made so I can see and approve the physical design. We then either hand-make the ring out of the chosen gold or make a casting. This particular one is rose gold and white gold with white diamonds. The diamonds are then selected and set on the ring at which point if there are multiple parts of the ring, they are then soldered together and the whole piece is polished. End result: boy gifts the ring and girl shows it off drinking a martini. Ta-da!!
Big Kiss and Bigger Diamonds,

The Earrings That Will Render You Speechless

Oh. My. Word! Have you EVER seen anything more beautiful?!?!?!

These beauties make my heart skip a beat, blood pressure rise and brings a full flush to my face!  I swear it feels JUST like love.  Jean & Alex did these recently for a private client and I almost couldn’t bear to give them up!  My dears, THIS is why you go bespoke!  I happen to LOVE LOVE LOVE functional jewelry (who says diamonds can’t be practical?  I could cut my way through a glass ceiling!) and well, whats more functional than 3-in-1 earrings?  What?  Yes, these earrings can be worn 3 ways.  Pretty genius no?
