One of my favorite commissions to date. I had the honor of creating a one of a kind "BB-8" gold lapel pin for Mr. Bob Iger, Disney CEO. It was a gift to him by a dear friend who wanted him to wear it at the grand opening of Star Wars - The Force Awakens.

Cindy came to me with a tanzanite she acquired while traveling. It was a stunning 4.68 carat cushion cut with such vivrant purple and blue hues. Really, one of the prettiest tanzanites I've seen. She wanted a simple halo setting that would bring bring out the most in her gem. At first look, this seems to be a traditional halo, but if you look closely, I created a prong style that would allow the diamonds around it to be more visible. This would reflect more light and make the diamonds pop, as much as the tanzanite. Each diamond set on the halo has a gallery opening underneath, which is not common in most halos.

When LW came to me, he said..."Avedis ! I want you to make me a ring everyone's going to talk about!" 

No.....pressure, right?

He told me he wanted a ring that had his initials, the american flag and a fish on a hook. The story of the fish tells of his time of importing salmon from Canada to the US.  Oh and to wear it on his pinky and to lay over his ring finger or stand out on the side.

I've never made a ring like this and was intrigued by the idea. It was a challenge but so fun to work on.

 Created for Mrs. AB from Mr. MB...this was a Valentine's Day gift with rubies and diamonds. MB came to me with his sketch and explained to me he wanted links to go all around the finger and each link had an oval ruby surrounded with diamonds.   So, I started the search to find 6 matching oval rubies, which I tell you, is easier said than done.

She always wanted a Morganite.

What a better occasion to celebrate our 5th anniversary with a beautiful 5 carat Morganite. ( A diamond that big is above my pay grade for now)

 Believe it or not, I was having trouble with finding a round cut Morganite. Firstly, morganites are more brilliant in cushion or oval shapes. But, the design I had in mind for our anniversary ring, better fit for a round cut.  In order for me to get the best cut and brilliance, I had to acquire a larger morganite, about 6 carats and cut it down with more facets, to get a near perfect 5 carat. The Christina Cinq, is set in a rose gold floral design, with hand set pave diamonds on each petal. 

Originally, I designed it for a white metal and diamond in the center and also had it with a sandblast finish. But a pink morganite looks best in a pink rose gold ring. You can even see in the sandblasted pics, the prongs came out crooked. Lot's of trial and error with this one till we got it right.

Cindy came to me with a tanzanite she acquired while traveling. It was a stunning 4.68 carat cushion cut with the most vibrant purple and blue hues, I've ever seen.  She wanted a 'simple halo' setting that would not take away from the beauty of the gem. At first look, you may think this is a standard halo. However,  if you look closely, I created a new prong style that would allow the diamonds around the tanzanite, to be set with less metal.  This would allow more more light to shine through and make the diamonds pop. Each individual diamond around the halo has it's own setting with a gallery opening underneath.

MGB

One of my most asked about rings. This is the true conversation starter ring. Originally, I created this ring with a london blue topaz for me and my client Mr. MGB was in awe struck. He wanted his own, with a green gem. So, emerald gems are too soft for his daily use which meant I had to fine a more durable option. Green Garnet aka Tsavorite was the way to go,

I love to create unique pieces for my wife to wear....some will say how lucky she is, but really, I am the one who lucked out. The desire to make her pieces gave me the thought of starting my Tag collection. I wanted to show my appreciation by engraving  the words "His Muse" with my handwriting on a gold pendant framed with diamonds.
