A jewelry design usually starts in a couple different ways: with a gemstone, a design idea, or a celebration! Some clients come to us with old jewelry that they want re-designed into something that fits their current style. Other times, they want our help to celebrate a milestone. For this month’s feature project, we created a custom right hand ring to commemorate our client’s wedding anniversary.

We worked closely with our client to first create the perfect custom design. This is one of our favorite parts of our work, as we get to use our creativity and experience to get the design just right. It means so much that our clients trust us to help create the perfect piece.

We knew our client wanted an impressive and *large* emerald as the center stone, with a diamond halo and step-cut diamonds on the shoulder. So we selected this absolutely stunning lab-created emerald in a timeless emerald-cut. You can see in the photo above how the geometric faceting really highlights the depth of color.

Did you know that we have three in-house goldsmiths? One of them is our owner, Karen Johnson! So you can rest assured that every piece is handled with the utmost care and expertise.

Once this ring was cast in 14kt white gold, our goldsmiths got to work setting the stones. Each one placed carefully and lovingly in the setting, and secured with an expert hand.

Our client was thrilled with the final result, and so are we! A unique and special way to celebrate an anniversary; a ring that will last a lifetime, for a once-in-a-lifetime love. We are so honored to be a part of your most beloved memories, and to create beautiful fine jewelry that can be passed down for generations.

If you’ve been considering a custom piece of fine jewelry for a special event, or even just because, our designers and goldsmiths can help design and create that perfect something your collection is missing. Stop by our Woodbury, MN showroom to get started.
