Modern is the New Classic

Here’s an oldie but a goodie from the photo archives. Here’s a ring Chad made back when he opened his first store in Florida. This architectural looking mounting was completely hand fabricated by Chad, no casting involved. Time for modernist jewelry design to have its retro comeback, don’t you think?

Complete Engagement Ring Rebuild

Sometimes the best way to restore and old piece of jewelry is to start from scratch with a new mounting! Rather do extensive repairs on all the prongs, bridges, and weak spots and bends in the shank, we decided it would be more effective to rebuild an identical ring and transfer the stones into a fresh, sturdy mounting with stronger prong coverage. These diamonds are ready for another lifetime of wear!
