Antique reproduction work is a specialty we love to perform. To be done right, it requires formal education, practical training, and research abilities. There are three main reasons our guests visit us for this kind of service:

With more than seven years of formal training under her belt, our founder was exposed to her fair share of jewelry history education. As a consequence, she is well-versed in the features of the various period styles, including ethnic variances. Additionally, as a former diamond dealer, she has ready access to all the diamonds (and reproduction cutters) needed to properly execute a period piece of your dreams.

Babs has a strong interest in Forensic Reproduction...basically, by combining formal education in jewelry history with microscopic investigation and knowledge of crafting techniques, she will look at your antique or estate pieces, and re-make it based on what it was when that antique was new. 

So, not only do you enjoy the full-bloom beauty that the original wearer did, but also the additional longevity brought with the original metal thickness and the benefit of modern alloy mixtures, which are superior. Folks are usually surprised to find out what "this old ring" looked like when she was new: engraving for which there are very faint reminders, finishes that have all but worn away, prong styles that have long since been modified into inferior, out-of-era ones. 

It's like taking a trip backwards in time, to the point in history when the ring was originally made.
