This customer loves roses. The Idea was a stylized rose with a center stone. We made several designs on paper, and after he decided on his favorite, we made several models in wax of the center part (the rose). Then we finished the ring.
Here is his review on Yelp:
Julio, the owner, is an incredible artist. He worked on the engagement ring for my fiance in 2010. I had a vague idea of what I wanted and Julio, based on my vague statements and hand-waving was able to sketch out and make the perfect design (a ring in the shape of an abstract rose)!
We met about 10 times leading up to my engagement as he was working on the ring, showing me various sketches, models, and then casts. I was probably one of his more difficult clients, but Julio was always professional, accommodating and pleasant. His pricing is fair, reasonable, and transparent.
I wholeheartedly recommend Julio for any custom work. The store also has hundreds of unique and original pieces and is a pleasure to browse.
