    What to Expect


    After selecting and booking your appointment time, you will receive a questionnaire via email to prepare you for your consult. All appointments are subject to approval and times/dates are subject to change. There is no obligation to buy anything during or after your consultation.

    Made to order ring projects typically take approximately 3-6 weeks to craft after approval and payment in full. Turn-around times vary by design complexity and production studio availability.

    We encourage you to be prepared with your appointment with wishlists, Instagram or Pinterest inspiration boards, an accurate ring size (if it's a surprise), and most importantly-- the story that is driving the design.

    We also encourage you to bring any and all questions-- this is your opportunity to have any jewelry, diamond, and gemstone questions answered by an expert. We love to educate our clients and can go as deep as you're interested in going.

    If you have any initial questions prior to booking, please feel free to contact us at or call us at 510-251-9000.
