Before & After

As you probably know by now, we do a lot of custom work, especially a lot of custom commitment rings. Often times we create pieces from scratch, but sometimes we also revamp an existing piece. A few months ago a couple came to us with two beautiful wedding bands from their grandparents. They wanted to keep the rings and honor the tradition, however they were looking to customize the rings a little bit and add a personal touch.

Here are the before and after pictures. As you can see, the simple 14K yellow gold half round band (on the left) got a more edgy and sculpted look, while the 14K yellow gold sculpted band (on the right) got a hammered, two-tone look.

We couldn’t be more excited for our customers on their wedding and are so happy they chose us to rework these extra-special pieces. Should you want to revamp an old piece of jewelry, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Wedding Parties!

We has so much fun at Indie Wed! Held at the Ravenswood Event Center, a giant loft filled with 50’s and 60’s porsches, mercedes and ferraris, it was the perfect space for an event of this kind. Every booth was fun and unique, making all of us want to get married (again). Great music made the day feel more like a party than a show and we are still dreaming of the amazing food. We were so lucky to be next to Uptown Brownie…our waistlines still haven’t forgiven us:).

Not only were the vendors wonderful, but the couples walking around were fabulous too. We met a lot of new couples and are excited to share our upcoming projects with you so please stay tuned. In the meantime, we’ve uploaded some of our newest wedding and engagement rings to our website, check them out here.
