a sage-smudge ceremony in celebration of several decades of marriage plus an updated wedding ring. the original ring was in yellow gold, the new version is in white gold and we needed to keep the diamond in a bezel.
she loves vintage filigree!

i am very excited to announce i am now offering a new partnership with Elma Gil, a premier bridal and fine jewelry design house, beautifully designed and expertly crafted. there are many pendants/necklaces available from this jewelry designer from my shop.

this ring was made for my cousin – both he and she are seriously stylish! like many of us of a certain age, they found they didn’t need as much, and styles have changed-so some items were no longer being worn. during down sizing, right sizing, we took all the diamonds out of rings, earrings and other jewelry pieces no longer being worn.
the diamonds were from family members on both sides of the family, and i was charged with designing something using all of the stones. she wanted something she could wear all the time. he wanted something she could also wear to black tie events. i wanted something contemporary yet timeless, and i kept thinking of the waves of life.
all of the stones were set into a 14k white gold wavy ring, with one yellow gold wave accent. the diamonds are various sizes, also known as milage, are pave set.
i love the undulating of this ring, keeps it from being still.
a statement and signature ring with 38 diamonds for approximately 1.75 carats total weight, 14k yellow and 14k white gold.
location: Simsbury, CT.
what to do with a european-cut diamond from great granddad? she agreed that a classic and sweet solitaire diamond pendant necklace would be perfect.
the diamond was originally in what is now her engagement ring and now is set en collette with a delicate cable link in 14k white gold chain
location: New Britain, CT
she was lobbying at the US Capitol and fell in the rotunda onto the concrete floor. she did not think anything was wrong until she noticed her really damaged wedding set complete with missing diamond. amazingly the diamond was found about 20 feet away! after a trip to the emergency room to have the rings cut off her finger and several months later, i had the pleasure of reconstructing the wedding set.
we combined her damaged wedding band that was in 2 pieces with her engagement ring which was damaged beyond repair resulting in a new wedding band with re-set diamond and a floating heart pendant.
14k white gold with a six-prong crown for her brilliant cut diamond.
location: Bloomfield, CT – thanks to the connectivity of social media and a recommendation from several high school classmates
she always wanted an emerald ring, something she could wear regularly. the diamond from this wedding band was reset into something else and so we re-purposed the white gold ring. where the diamond had originally been set is now an 18k yellow gold bezel with the carefully chosen beautiful emerald.
voila! a new look for this ring with definitive colors for a fabulous repeat customer!

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.
this is where imagination is unlimited. using your designs or mine, your stones or mine i shall do my best to see your vision to fruition. whether it be for your finger, your ears, around your neck or on your wrist the process begins with you.
It is beautiful. The jeweler did a great job.

I was so upset when I lost my coin ring last year and am now thrilled to have it back. Kent saw the Greek coin ring today & loved it! He was so generous. He appreciates the process of working with you to always design something special.
And a lovely necklace. It is such a special piece and really connects my mother, myself and my daughter whenever she wears it, which is all the time! Thank you. It was a wonderful experience working with you!
Thank you again for your beautiful work on my rings. They turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I am so thankful!
Don’t know how you did it but there is so much movement in the design that the pin fairly dances! It has a slightly giddy, joyful quality. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you!
Creative and unique design. One on one attention allows you to construct what you desire!
Raimie created a beautiful custom necklace for my wife with our children’s initials on it as a Christmas present. My wife loved the necklace. Be back again soon for sure, great overall experience. Thanks Ramie !!!
I love my ring and I still can’t stop looking at it!! It is so beautiful!! I never thought I would own a ring so lovely. You and Amy are the BEST!
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.
