"Thank you so much for all your help with this beautiful ring.
The stone meant so much to me. I acquired it in Africa as a reward for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with my husband, my sister and several friends. It was a personal challenge that included surviving a killer storm on the mountain and overcoming a measure of altitude sickness. I learned that tanzanite is extremely rare and found only in the hills of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania so it seemed a perfect souvenir to commemorate our achievement. I held on to the stone for 14 months before deciding on what I wanted to do it with since it is very sentimental.
I met Robyn a few years ago and I have come to appreciate her personal style and professional designs. Robyn is an expert and I knew I could trust her with this project. She spent a lot of time with me in person and over the phone. I told her that I prefer simple things and asked for designs reflective of my taste and she presented me with several styles exactly along the lines I requested. Then, she showed me what she thought would work with the stone and its history and the decision was clear. I absolutely loved her choice. It took a few weeks to have the setting custom made to my stone but Robyn met with the diamond distributors and took care of everything and made sure the quality and workmanship was perfect. She even had the tanzanite and diamonds appraised for insurance purposes and had a written appraisal. She met me at my home on a Saturday morning with the ring, appraisal and receipts. I was elated! Robyn managed to combine the elements of an epic event, an adventurer spirit, and a rare gem with a magnificent setting to create the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. I highly recommend Robyn for all your design and jewelry needs."

The time and attention she dedicated to making sure we ended up with the most stunning pair of wedding bands is immeasurable. Not only did she save us money, but she presented us with what we perceive to be a higher quality product that you can buy in the stores. We will be repeat customers for years to come!"

“When my then boyfriend, now husband, and I talked about getting engaged, I knew I wanted an amazing, unique engagement ring. Unlike some others girls who knew exactly what type of ring they have always wanted, I had no idea. I had never put much thought into it. I just knew classic style and beauty were the main qualities I wanted when considering a ring. The first person I thought of that I knew could help was Robyn. I knew right away that I wanted Robyn to help me design my ring because if mine was even half as beautiful, I would be in good shape. I also knew Robyn has always had impeccable and exquisite taste. Both qualities you want in someone who will help design something you will wear forever. Robyn was very excited and eager to help us and immediately directed me to websites to look at settings and diamond shapes. Robyn was great at helping to narrow down styles and diamond shapes based on my likes and dislikes. She was great at understanding what I liked and offered me many options from which to select. Aside from what diamond shape and setting, Robyn also helped to focus this dreaming bride on what realistically could fit within our budget. Once I decided on diamond shape, Robyn taught me about diamond qualities and helped me look through loose diamonds. The process was not only fun to pick out my dream engagement ring, but it was educational. Robyn ensured we got the best investment when choosing a stone. I am so thankful to have had someone like her to turn to during that special time in my life when options could seem so large and overwhelming and when it’s hard to discern when someone is taking advantage and selling you an overpriced low quality product. Robyn helped bring the ring process down to a manageable task. I ended up with a ring and matching custom band that is more than I could have ever dreamed of and definitely more than I could have done on my own. Robyn listened to what I wanted and found exactly what I wanted and way beyond. I have a very high grade diamond in an amazing custom, vintage style setting. I am complimented on my ring and band nearly every time I wear them. I have heard things such as" that diamond sparkles more than any other I have ever seen" and have heard from many "that is the most beautiful setting I have ever seen." Someone also asked if my ring and band were estate pieces from my husband's family. Bottom line is my ring and band are amazing and again, I could have never done this on my own. Working with Robyn resulted in a product that truly surpassed all of my expectations.”
