instead of duplicating the ring we captured the essence the original piece using the diamonds where needed, replacing the rubies with new ones and – the extra special feature – we found a way to incorporate her original wedding band.
cluster ring to shiny pendant
what the shop has been doing is converting ring tops into pendants with chains. since she is not wearing rings these days, we repurposed an old cluster ring into a necklace.
charm bracelet to charming pendant
she was the recipient of the family kitschy jewelry. the oversized gold charms with rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls big enough to wear each as a pendant. they don’t make charms like this anymore – intricate and handmade with moving parts.

My husband really liked his Christmas present! I want to thank you again for your excellent work.
It was great chatting with YOU too on Saturday. I had a great Saturday. I met with a few businesses I shop at on and off, so nice seeing them. I enjoy buying from small businesses for this specific reason. Wonderful people who care about people, we gain a nice relationship such as yourself and others.

Thank you so much for the beautiful emerald necklace you designed for our 50th wedding anniversary. It is a remarkable fine display of workmanship. I appreciated the energy you put into your design. Kilby was on “cloud nine” on the ride home. It was nice visiting with you again.
I LOVE my ring!!! It is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to show it off to everyone!! Thank you Ramie for your beautiful craftsmanship.
I was searching for a jeweler to repurpose a string of pearls (my mom’s) for my granddaughter’s wedding. I consider it serendipity finding Raimie. Besides being a gifted jeweler, she made us feel welcome and like we were her only customers. Raimie provided excellent customer service under a deadline. We greatly appreciate her expertise and guidance. Thank you Raimie for helping to make a special wedding memory.
The dog tag pendant looks amazing! He will love it. Thank you so much! Can’t wait for the package! You do great work.
I was browsing the net on a Sunday evening and decided to take a peek at your site, which I haven’t visited since I have been visiting you so regularly. Much to my surprise and delight I found 2 of the pieces you created for me: the cabochon London blue topaz earrings and the terrific “double up” you did with my 2 pairs of earrings made of green-unfortunately-named stones. But the best part was being referenced as one of your “favorite gals.” I got such a kick out of seeing the lovely thi… Read more
