Sapphire Engagement Rings
Love is Love in Sapphires

I had the privilege of designing wedding bands for my friend Monica and her future wife, Katie. The wedding band stacks featured a brilliant-cut Montana sapphire for Monica and a free-form, rose-cut Madagascar sapphire with a gorgeous smoky lavender hue for Katie. It’s amazing how unique yet complimentary the two stacks are, just like Monica and Katie themselves. Read more about the process here!

Salt and Pepper Ring Set
Salt & Peppered to Perfection

My long-time friend Gretel fell in love with Salt and Pepper diamonds from our April blog, so we let the stones themselves serve as the inspiration for the design. The result, a gorgeous and totally one-of-a-kind ring set contoured around a hexagonal Salt and Pepper diamond. Read more about the design process here!

Golden Heirloom Ring Set

A Golden Heirloom Transformation

Joanna wanted to transform a golden family heirloom into elegant, modern rings for herself and her mom.

Ouroboros Ring with Sapphire Eyes
Designing an Ouroboros Ring

An Ouroboros is a symbol of a snake eating its own tail, which is rich in historical contexts and meaning. Our challenge was to take this intricate, historical image and transform it into a ring design that is fierce, modern and wearable without losing any of the detail and symbolism. Look closely to discover the blue sapphire eyes and hidden engraving on our upcoming blog release!

Topaz Statement Ring
Together in Topaz

The story behind this ring involves someone very near and dear to me: Angelita, my best friend and godmother of my wedding. She reached out to me with a lovely idea for a custom jewelry design project using two topaz stones gifted to her by her dad. The two topaz stones set in a delicate rose gold embrace exquisitely captured the love and eternal bond between Mother and Daughter—a modern interpretation of a family heirloom that Angela will cherish for years to come. Stay tuned for blog release soon!

Final Thoughts

Looking at all of these projects together, I’m moved by the variety of the custom designs and the uniqueness of each client’s vision. Working directly with the client brings out ideas and approaches to jewelry making that I wouldn’t have otherwise discovered on my own; that is the beauty of collaboration.
