This is a great story. Awhile back we got an email from a guy named Josh living in Equador looking for a band to accompany his grandmother's diamond. The catch was that the diamond was in Chicago with his brother. Rather than send the diamond to us they had a family jeweler in Chicago who was lined up to set the diamond in the band we'd provide. This required lots of back & forth about the diamond's specs, making sure the setting would be correct, look right & most importantly - fulfill what he was after. Turns out it worked! We just got a really sweet email directing us to his blog where you can read more about their beautiful, high altitude (16,463 feet to be precise), mountain top proposal.

Here we have another antique beauty. This from the turn of the last century in England featuring a gorgeous mine cut .25 c diamond. The mixed metal of yellow Gold with a Platinum top complements the stone beautifully. With some really nice milgrain work on the band, this one's a total classic.

As wedding season approaches we've been busy in the shops and with Spring just around the corner (really!) we thought it time to share some of our current crop of gorgeous engagement rings. First up, a stunning 3/4 carat Deco ring with a center diamond of incredible color & sparkle. The band is 18k White Gold, hand engraved with bright side diamonds, the center diamond an early transitional cut. The picture doesn't really doesn't do justice to this beauty. Come in & have a look!

Here is something special & highlights some of the interesting custom work we're able to do for our customers as a small company. Recently a retired gentleman who served proudly in our military for many years approached us about transforming his wings into a ring. We were able to make a negative of his original pin (*see below), leaving it intact - then casting a positive in 14k Gold & making it into a ring. It came out beautifully & he couldn't have been happier with it!
