Many of you know that we offer custom made jewelry. However, what you might not know is that we make a lot of the jewelry that is in our display cases as well. I like this for many reasons, one of which is quality control. By hand selecting the right diamonds and colored gemstones and then matching them to the right mounting, I can make the piece look the way I want it to be and represent the look and quality that I want to be known for in the jewelry industry. If I order a piece from another manufacturer, many times they will be making it overseas in a foreign factory. The quality control can vary sometimes when they use factories in different parts of the world. Also, some of those factories have hundreds and sometimes thousands of employees making jewelry for hundreds of different jewelers. Consistent quality is difficult under those circumstances. I have just my local clients and many fewer pieces, so I can spend a good deal of time on each item personally. That way it does not go out in the case without my approval of the finished product.
Almost all of my mountings are cast in New York City, USA. Many of these are original designs that we build using computer aided design technology. One of our cad artists is a Fashion Institute of New York graduate. I have built a sample line in sterling silver of our bridal products. This way you can see dozens of different ideas and try them on your finger before you actually build it. This gives you a custom ring built to your wants and desires using styles that we have developed over the past few years. You can look at a halo ring, pick out any features that you want, put a sapphire, ruby, tanzanite, or some other colored gemstones in it along with diamonds. Then you choose your metal. I offer white gold, rose gold, and yellow gold as well as platinum. Our 18kt white gold is as good of a mixture as I have seen. We use palladium in the mix to give it a whiter and richer color. We are well known for platinum as we have several custom rings that we made last year in platinum.
I invite you to make an appointment to discuss custom jewelry, bridal, loose diamond selection, colored gemstones, appraisals, high end watch brokerage. I try to offer as many services as possible custom tailored to my local clients. Email me at email@example.com for an appointment.
For now, please enjoy looking through the four images that are attached to this posting. These are new items which we finished and have on display as of Thursday. You will see some 14kt rose gold being used. I feel that it is fresh and youthful. I have a new double infinity ring with the band of the ring 14kt white gold and the double infinity 14kt rose gold. There is also a vintage style halo pendant in 14kt rose gold as well. The next article will detail a new custom rose gold ring that we have just finished with an emerald center. Very nice piece and very fresh. The colors of the rose gold combined with the green emerald and near colorless diamonds make for a striking piece. I should have it posted by Monday, the client has not seen it yet so I don’t want to spoil it for her by putting a picture of it up now.
