Custom Design

As a full-service jeweler, we offer a full suite of custom design services and invite you to come in and design the piece of your dreams. Whether you bring in your own sketch or a photo you’ve fallen in love with, creating custom jewelry is an exciting collaborative process. You can even work with a famed design house, such as Kwiat or Temple St. Clair to turn what’s in your head into something on your neck... or wrist... or ears... or finger!

Re-Settings

Bring new life to a favorite stone or a piece of jewelry in your vault with an updated design and setting. It’s the perfect way to turn a sentimental jewel you never wear into an heartstopping new favorite.

Trade-Ins & Upgrades The design process starts with a sketch, which is created by one of our jewelry vendors, once you’ve discussed your vision. The next part is selecting the gems, metals and finishes you have in mind. This process often encompasses various pieces of reference and ideas from you and the designer, and is an exciting journey. The piece you create will be truly yours alone and we are confident, will exceed your expectations.

If you have a diamond or heirloom gem that you no longer wear, why not trade it into something fabulous? We’ll give you an objective valuation that can help pave the way towards something you’ll adore!

Designer/Friend Since 2010

An evil eye given to me by a friend, purchased in Turkey, earrings (usually geode or rose cut diamond studs with my signature irregular bezel) and typically a pendant.

I got to know it well while I lived in Paris. What is the most exciting commission you’ve ever done? The diamond encrusted ring that was part of the custom made dress by Jason Wu for Mrs. Obama for the second Inaugural Ball.

I have the most amazing clients. The Kimberly McDonald collector inspires me. She is radical without being showy, she is irreverent and beautiful. And I am extremely happy designing for her.

SUTRA JEWELS


SUTRA JEWELS

Designer/Friend Since 2013

What’s your greatest inspiration? I am mostly inspired by the gemstones themselves. There is so much beauty inside of one small piece of material that came from the earth.

What historical figure would you have liked to design jewelry for? Grace Kelley. Why do you love creating custom pieces? We often make only one of a particular design, so I like to treat every piece I design as if it were custom. I sometimes envision the woman who may come to own it. However, the fun lies in making something that is a direct reflection of client and designer in one.

Color Her World as Never Before

FANCY DIAMONDS Colored diamonds are one of the earth’s rarest and most sensational wonders, as only one in 10,000 diamonds emerges from the earth with natural color. “Vivid” yellow diamonds are perennially the most sought-after, while the rarest and most valuable are saturated pinks, blues, and greens. What’s her favorite color? If you don’t see that perfect piece in our jewelry cases, let us know what you’re looking for. We’ll source it from one of the world’s top diamond houses or our network of diamond brokers and we can design something that will truly make her life more colorful.


THE FOUR C’S The Four Most Important Criteria for Choosing a Diamond

Carat:

”Carat” is the easiest characteristic to assess as it is simply the weight of a diamond. One carat is equal to .2 grams. Each carat is made up of 100 “points,” so a carat that is “50 points” is .50 carats.

1.00 ct.

2.50 ct.

4.00 ct.

6.00 ct. All sizes are approximated.

Color:

Diamonds (except “fancy” colored diamonds) are valued by “colorlessness.” Less color means higher value. The scale begins with the D (colorless) and continues through the alphabet, with increasing presence of color, to Z.

H

D

N

Z

Clarity:

Most diamonds have birthmarks called inclusions (internal) and blemishes (external). The less marks a diamond has, the more valuable. Diamonds are given a clarity grade that ranges from Flawless (FL) to Imperfect (I3).

VVS2

VS2

SI2

I2

Cut:

“Cut” begins with the shape of a diamond, “round brilliant” being the most common. As a value factor, it refers to a diamond’s proportions, symmetry and polish. For round brilliants, the GIA rates cut from Excellent to Poor.

Round

Asscher

Emerald

Oval

Marquise

What made you become a jewelry designer? I was working as a model, but was an art school drop-out, and looking for a creative outlet, when I fell in love with a handmade ring I saw on the hand of a work associate.

What 3 words describe your jewelry? Classic, handmade and tactile. How do you collaborate with clients to create custom jewelry? I love hearing what they would like me to make, and then it is a very inspiring challenge to create it from my heart, so that it is both their vision and mine, intertwined.

MATTIA C IELO

Designer/Friend Since 2014

What’s your greatest inspiration? As an Italian, I have the privilege to be inspired by many sources. My hometown near Venice, Italy has a remarkable artistic heritage. But also books on philosophy and architecture, my two great passions, take me on a journey through times, cultures, literature and design. What artists (art, music, literature, architecture, etc.) inspire you most? I am intrigued by movement and advanced technology applied to jewelry. I believe that it is possible to revolutionize the jewelry world, taking it to the third millennium. We are Generation X, raised on Japanese Anime and US sci-fi movies. Gundam, Blade Runner, and The Matrix are favorite movies of mine. I love modern architects, from Gaudi to Oscar Niemeyer. What would you design if it weren’t jewelry? I love the sea; I would have designed race sailboats! How do you unwind? Having dinner with friends. This is my idea of perfect happiness.

What’s your greatest inspiration? California is ultimately my greatest inspiration. The coastline, the ocean, the aromas, the lifestyle… it always finds its way into my designs.

It was also my first time working with pearls. What jewelry do you wear every day? I wear my hand-carved Boulder Opal Horse Pendant every day! And my new pearl charms on a long chain. What’s your favorite restaurant in the world? Capo in Santa Monica. Can’t live without it.

TULAH JEM


TULAH JEM

Designer/Friend Since 2013

What made you want to become a designer? It really evolved naturally…. I was crafting pieces out of pavé beads from India and leather to wear myself and women were stopping me on the street to ask where I bought them, so I just started making them for my friends and clients and the rest is history. What jewelry do you wear everyday? I wear my mantra necklace from the new collection and one of my lip necklaces 24/7. For the evening, I add my leather and diamond pave cuff, a rose gold ball chain lariat and a few rings. What’s your favorite meal to cook? Answer 1: Next question…Answer 2: My favorite meal is a cheeseburger and French fries with an ice cold Heineken…preferably while sitting at the bar watching a New York Rangers game. What is the most exciting commission you’ve ever done? I was flattered to have the pleasure of designing pieces for Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Minnie Driver. They all have great style.
