A Thoughtful Ring...

Right before the holidays, Tom stopped into the studio to look into creating a custom ring for his wife who was about to give birth to their second child. He brought his adorable son and we met their baby a couple months later. It was so nice to hear him describe how wonderful his wife is and how incredible she is as a mother and the excitement they shared to welcome their second child. We combined a Dyer Blue, NV turquoise mined and cut by a husband and wife team with imperial topaz to commemorate the birthdays of both of their children; and accented it with a diamond, hand fabricated in 14k recycled gold.

There was something in particular that was extra meaningful about our design opportunity and it was something that we will not forget. Tom said that he felt something special in the studio,  as though there was a different ambiance in the air. We feel it too! There is a special aura to the space that we distinctly feel and know others share that feeling with us. We believe its rooted in the connectivity and the stories, history, and passing of objects of meaning from one hand to another that happens within our walls. The relationships that grow within the studio and the moments that unfold are truly beautiful; we are honored to begin to know these people that come through our mint door and share their experiences. We hope to continue to tell stories of love, celebration, triumph, and remembrance through our jewelry and our space.

Kelly + Nick Custom Engagement

I first met Kelly when she stopped by the studio to swoon over our rose cut diamond marquise ring. She told me about her boyfriend Nick and their thoughts about engagement rings. I always like to hear how couples have either similar or different opinions and which ones choose to design together or separate.

To celebrate achievements with her business, Kelly was thinking of treating herself to that particular ring. I truly believe each ring, gemstone, and diamond really calls to their person. Kelly decided to pass on the ring since they had just bought a condo and were excited to focus on their new place. It was a real treat when Kelly and Nick contacted me to tell me they were engaged and wanted to create a custom engagement ring with me.

I had a red, rose cut diamond in the studio for a little while that I loved, but couldn't bring myself to make anything with it because I knew that it somehow belonged to someone. During our consultation, Kelly went right to that red diamond. After considering it against a couple others, she knew it was for her. To commemorate Nick in her rings, she decided to have an open cuff wedding ring with his birthstone, onyx. 

It was such a wonderful experience to meet with Kelly and Nick and watch them involve each other in the process of designing her engagement ring and wedding ring. Nick surprised her with the finished rings and she was thrilled. Kelly (like most of us ladies do before we get married) admitted that she was trying on her wedding ring already and wearing it around the house:) I am so thankful for all of these great couples that I have the opportunity to work with!

The Mrs. Box Obsession...

We are so excited to have ordered a few beautiful velvet ring boxes from The Mrs. Box. Although they're not available for purchase in the shop with your engagement ring (they haven't confirmed if they will be selling to stores yet), we love how amazing the colors are. I mean, a pink velvet ring box...sign me up! Naturally, as soon as the boxes arrived in the shop, Hayley and I ceremoniously Instagram storied the whole unwrapping process, redesigned the fine jewelry case, and started photographing our favorite rings in the new boxes. Enjoy the loveliness!
