Mimi learned as a consumer first, then as designer, to always work with the most qualified people for any task. It’s important to vet the person assigned to your project. This applies to any trade including jewelry, fashion, furniture design, and even renovating a home! If you understand quality, work with quality materials and hire a qualified team, then the outcome will meet or exceed your expectations.
What qualifies a candidate in their field predominantly depends on their area of expertise. Many jewelers are accustomed to working only in certain metals or with certain stones. Rare gemstones can be damaged in the wrong hands so you don’t want someone learning on your dime.
A “Master jeweler” uses their skill and experience to work with all precious metals and stones with the care and precision of a surgeon or architect. Their valuable expertise is always worth the time and expense to execute a design the right way. Something done properly the first time is the best way to avoid disappointment.
In addition to our jewelers, setters, polishers, and engravers, we use the highest quality materials. All our stones are conflict free and responsibly sourced. Center stone diamonds come with reports from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and our precious metal suppliers practice ethical and sustainable sourcing of recycled metals.
