Late one January afternoon, our studio phone rang. Immediately upon answering, a man with a deep voice began rapidly explaining that he was calling all the way from New Jersey and was in need of a very special custom engagement ring. But he wanted something - different. His bride, he explained, didn't do classic and traditional - and he needed a ring as unique as she was. He provided us with a list of inspirations to aide us in designing this beautifully distinctive engagement ring.

Combining an inspiration of architect Daniel Widrig and artist HR Giger meshed with the gracefulness of a swan.  After drafting the initial sketches Takayas created a final design which combined the essence of everything she loved.

Once customer expressed his enthusiastic approval, and assured us that his girlfriend would love it as well - it was time to actually start constructing the ring.

We always start by finding the perfect stone...
