It's not cranked out of a machine overseas; it starts with a wonderful design and a crude piece of platinum or gold, lovingly fashioned in the hands of a master jeweler.
We love recommending the jewelry we make, because we know each step that has gone into its creation: we've watched the platinum melted, hammered out on an anvil and welded into beautiful form. It gives us peace of mind to know everything is as good as it possibly can be.
It all starts with the design
