It’s the 1950s and an opposite shore of Santa Monica Pier – Soviet Russia with everyone around wearing gray, similar almost uniform clothes.
Siberia, Sakhalin Island specifically, is where my grandparents met. People here won’t see fresh food and refrigerators there until late 60s.
Despite of absence of money, my grandparents chose not to follow everyone else but rather to make custom wedding bands designed specifically for them.
The older I become, the deeper I resonate with their story. That’s why I named the store in honor of my grandparents.
If you told me ten years ago I’d be interested in making custom jewelry, I’d tell you that’s a crazy thought. Yet, here we are today, 400+ weddings photographed, and more knowledge about the weddings and psychology of couples than I ever imagined I’d have.
I went from being an entrepreneur in my early 20s to being a wedding photographer, and now back to an entrepreneur.
It’s always about passion and true feelings and emotions for me. I designed my first ring for someone special to me. It was a very significant time for me and I loved the process too.
Then friends started asking for custom rings, so I did that. And now, I’m excited to work with you on your ideas.
Now you know the backstory, it’s time you met the team.
I’m on the far left. I look a bit depressed and overweight, but don’t worry, we’re working on our drawing skills. In the middle is Ana, the brains behind this website, eCommerce, and other marketing things.
On the right we have Gene, he’s our jeweler and works on getting your gemstone cuts and settings just perfect.
You’ve got the team of type A perfectionists who love that they do. I don’t know a better crew to entrust your custom unique engagement rings and wedding bands to. There won’t be tougher judges of our work than ourselves.
This is the easiest contact form to fill out: no commitment, free, “happy to help you” consultation.
It can be intimidating to browse dozens of websites that all look the same. We get that.
So let’s talk about you. Take 10-20 minutes and really focus on you. Why? Because I’d rather build my business one client at a time.
