Engagement

Since you've found your way here, you're likely one of many who are looking for a colored stone alternative to a diamond engagement ring.  If you've spent much time at all shopping for such a ring, you might've been struck by the lack of well-cut options on the market.  We'd like the opportunity to show you that it doesn't have to be that way. 

 

Jeff White is an award-winning gem cutter known for his skill at bringing out the very best in the gemstones he cuts, and his precision-cut gems can be found in engagement rings around the world.  For 20+ years, it has been our honor to be one of the premier sources of fine gems for use in this most important of symbols.  Whether you know exactly what you're looking for or you need help along the way, we will be happy to ensure that you end up with the perfect engagement ring stone.  Photos from happy customers, like this one taken on the scene of a Hawaiian beach proposal, are why we do what we do.

"Words do not accurately describe the absolute beauty of your work.  The sapphire is stunning.  I am still in disbelief something so beautiful belongs to me.  I can't get over how clear she is!  You are a true artist.  Not only are you a master of your art, you are more than patient, and fluent in deciphering the sometimes-confusing language of a lay-person such as myself.  Your willingness to answer each and every question, and to do so with a patient demeanor, is equally as important the beauty of your work.  For many, the commissioning of a stone can be a significant financial commitment.  You made the entire process one in which there was never doubt about the end result.  I can't thank you enough for guiding me through this process, and having the artistry to bring my sapphire to life."

"A few months ago, I received my blue-green Montana sapphire from you.  The craftsmanship was absolutely stunning and the color was exactly what I was hoping for...  I am still in disbelief with how you managed to match the color so well based on the handful of photos I sent you...  I received the finished ring a few weeks ago and was absolutely overjoyed with how it turned out.  Then, last weekend while my girlfriend and I were on a long weekend vacation, I proposed with it.  My now fiancee is absolutely overjoyed with the ring and adores the color/beauty of the center stone you cut for us.  It is the absolute perfect size and was perfectly cut... I often catch her staring into the sapphire and smiling, deeply in love with the color and work you put into it... Thank you again for taking the time to answer all of my questions and for finding the perfect sapphire to make our engagement so special.  I couldn't have made the perfect ring for the perfect girl without your help!"
