Buying an Engagement Ring
The Process of Buying an Engagement Ring
Set a Budget
An engagement ring is a major purchase. You should feel comfortable with what you are buying. An important part of feeling comfortable with your purchase is having a budget and staying within it. I sell rings in all price ranges and help my clients maximize the value. Visit my blog post for more information.

Figure out Preferences
Engagement rings are available in so many style variations whether it be solitaire, three-stone ring, halo, filigree, or micro-pave. I work with you to discover and understand your preferences. Jewelry is a way to express your personality. You can trust my professional experience as I guide you through the process of finding the perfect ring.
Select a Diamond
Diamonds are prized for their unique beauty and symbolism. A diamond is the focal point of a ring and provides the brilliance and awe. Consequently, the center diamond is the most expensive part of an engagement ring. I will work with you personally to understand the world of diamonds, so that you really understand what you are buying. View a few of my current offerings here. However, I have much more in my studio.
Find a mounting
I work as closely with you on this stage of the purchase as I do when selecting a diamond. I want to understand your preferences, then use my decades of experience to find the right ring. I help you chose rings that match your style and are crafted to endure. A mounting should secure your diamond well while also allowing light to pass through and reveal its unique sparkle.
Here are samples and remember we can also custom-make your dream ring.
