Custom made wedding ring from Maidstone Jewelry

Sandy and Seth saw a ring at our booth at a fair on the hip Upper West Side of Manhattan. They wanted paired wedding rings with black diamonds. They agreed to send us some pictures from the web of rings they liked. Here is what we got:


Then we met at a local Starbucks and made some drawings:

We came up with a plan and made preliminary rings in Sterling silver to test for size, feel & fit:




Sandy and Seth liked the rings. Molds were made and the rings were cast in 18k white gold. Both were hand-hammered. Black diamonds were channel set.

In all we met 4 times face to face. Sandy and Seth got what they wanted and were very happy.




Maidstone Jewelry is about the beauty of the beach stones, that are at the core of our collection. We find our stones on the beaches of East Hampton. They inspire us and lead to new ideas. Between the land and the ocean there is a constant dance. It takes thousands of years for nature to patiently craft every stone at our feet.  With wonder and respect we work to highlight and display the qualities of the stones we choose.
