Solitaire engagement rings are what I design most frequently. They are also, fortunately, one of my favorite things to design because I love to get the flow of the lines just right. And, whether the center diamond or gem is purchased or an heirloom, a solitaire engagement ring is one of the most special things someone will own in their lifetime. I love getting to be part of that moment for so many people. Here is just a small sampling of my favorite solitaires I have designed.

Although the vast majority of my custom designs are for women (engagement rings, wedding bands, pendants, earrings, fashion rings, and so on) I do sometimes get a chance to design for men. Naturally, the most common request in men’s jewelry is the wedding band. I have also gotten requests for Masonic rings, family crests, and some more unusual options as well. Here are a few of my favorite custom designs for men.

One of the things I love about jewelry design is taking an old piece and making it into something new that will be even more beloved for the sentiment of the jewelry it came from originally. Often someone will come to me with a treasured ring or stone that belonged to a mother, grandmother, or other close relative. Together we come up with a way to give it new life in a way that suits the personality and aesthetic of its new owner. This is just one of those stories.
