The human touch....
At the custom/couture level of jewelry many clients understandably prefer a personalized experience and we are pleased to offer this unique level of engagement.
The initial step begins with simply sending an email direct to Stuart at (email@example.com), which we then follow up with an appointment in one of our offices, or if preferred, your office, or home.
These appointments bring a truly new element of design and collaboration to our one-of-a-kind couture pieces, built with the participation of each client’s individual input.
See the new custom link in Stuart’s section of our website for constantly updated views of his new pieces and the fascinating process behind these designs, as they transition from simple sketch to 3D CADs, to meticulous workmanship, to finished piece.
Making your piece...
We hand make Stuart’s designs utilizing platinum or gold with twice the hardness of cast pieces (still used to build 95% of jewelry in the market). workmanship video
By contrast, moore design either cuts the piece from cold-rolled sheet metal or, using the very latest technology, 3D-prints the piece directly from platinum or gold powder.
Our policy is to always give maximum value for your budget, never an inferior copy of a quality piece.
Buying a diamond...
You cannot use certificates to determine value/price of a diamond within 40%. If that sounds outrageous, it is, but it's true.
Online sources display an average price spread of 40%. That is because the certificate’s grades were designed in the 1950’s and are far too broad for today’s educated market. We believe that each grade of color and clarity should be subdivided into ten. Only then would it be safe to do what we call “buying the certificate
Our alternative is better. We will have our diamond cutter examine a group of actual certified stones that have already been sub graded. He then picks his favorite and we recommend it. Or, if you prefer, we will meet you by appointment in one of our offices and show you three of those stones and you choose.
We sell GIA certificated diamonds, over 1carat, at phenomenal prices, ensuring the best possible value.
Watch this space...
While we launched the website with seven designers to start, we will be adding and exhibiting the work of more designers from across the world, many of whom previously showcased their work in Stuart's galleries and who have become dear friends over the decades.
We look forward to offering the most meticulously curated and broad selection of this design niche in the US, once again.
Stuart's section of our site shows much of the work he has long been recognized for. He is also now utilizing several new revolutionary technologies to bring bespoke pieces to individual clients. custom
Our clients tell us they have found that being involved in the design is an exciting voyage. our customers' voices
Recent developments such as computer aided design (CAD) and 3D printing enable Stuart to bring you unique pieces that in the past would have remained a dream.
Starting with conceptual sketches at a private meeting with you (either in person or virtual), followed by CADS (which look like high grade photos of the piece) then, before ordering, a fully 3-dimensional model of the actual piece (in resin), you can be assured that the end result will be exquisite in every way.
We will also happily have Stuart employ this process to build you a custom piece if you have an old stone, you would like mounted.
