I am here to serve your jewelry needs with a holistic approach. More than a jeweler, I am here to help connect your story with your jewelry project.
Looking for Diamonds?
Buying a diamond can be an intimidating and confusing process, and I want to be able to help people navigate through all of the information in a relaxed atmosphere.
Restyle & Recycle
Some people may own jewelry that they haven’t worn for years. Or, they have inherited a gemstone or diamond from a family member. What do you do with jewelry or stones that you’re not sure what to do with? Bring them on over to my studio, and we can use what you have to create something new.
Need a Repair?
Things have changed so much in the jewelry industry that most jewelry repair work is shipped out of the store to be worked on by someone else. I believe there’s a different way to do business. That difference is that I personally work on your repair, and your jewelry never leaves my studio.
Creating custom jewelry is one of my favorite things to do because I really get to know the people I’m creating for. It’s a process where we sit down and discuss what you are envisioning and work together to make that happen. We may meet several times to get the idea just right.
As an appraiser I specify the market in which an item is being valued, I research and provide documentation of how I came up with the value, and I describe the jewelry in such detail that the item can be reproduced if necessary. Guessing is not my style; I am a researcher.
This beautiful pear diamond was given to my client by her mother. Surrounding the pear are diamonds that came from her grandmother’s earrings. It all came together in this stunner! I also took a small piece of gold, from her mom’s ring, melted it into a teeny ball, and soldered it to the inside of the ring. A little hidden reminder of her mom.
The bottom portion of a ring is called a shank. Over time, the metal can wear thin or damage can occur. The solution is to remove some or all of the shank and replace it with new metal. This is a vintage platinum ring that needed 3/4 of the original shank replaced with a new one. The new shank blends seamlessly into the ring and can now be worn for another 50 years!?
