Learn More About Our Engagement Rings
Our engagement rings are unique because we have worked for years to establish the best sources for the best rustic diamonds available.
An engagement ring is more meaningful than any other piece of jewelry that you will ever own and therefore every detail matters from the design to the gem color to the symbolic meaning behind your choice of gemstone.
A rustic diamond is a diamond that is "perfectly imperfect" - these imperfections can range from slight cloudiness, to lots of texture within the diamond created by inclusions, to completely opaque with rich, dark color.
The hardest gemstones on the MOHS scale of hardeness are diamonds followed by sapphire and ruby. Tourmaline and aquamarine are close behind sapphire and ruby. We feel that the hardest gems are the best for living up to the wear and tear of daily life.
Yes, diamonds are also in the category of "precious" gemstones.
Timing can vary due to design of a custom engagement ring, however, most projects are finished in 4-6 weeks.
We love to see your inspiration! But we cannot copy another designer&rsquo:s work. We listen, gather information, and advise you on diamond and gemstone options, metal selection, and all design possibilities available to you. If you are in the Portland, OR. area, we welcome appointments to review sample pieces, photos, sketches and ideas in person.
Yes. Each diamond or gemstone that we use is one-of-a-kind and cannot be duplicated. You deserve a one-of-a-kind unique engagement ring. We can also make a custom engagement ring for you.
We can arrange for an appraisal on any item with a GIA certified third party appraiser for $100. Items over $6000.00 come with a free appraisal.
Engraving is available for most pieces although the scale of a dainty band can make engraving hard to read. Contact us and our designer will help you out.
We have jewelry care instructions and advice for your special piece here
We have unique engagement rings on our website that are already made and simply need to be resized to your size. If you don&rsquo:t see what you are looking for, or want to make some changes to a design, contact us for this special order.
We design alternative engagement rings that feature rustic diamonds and hand-cut sapphires. We love other rustic gemstones as long as they are hard enough to stand up to daily wear and tear.
It&rsquo:s a good idea to have your jewelry examined at least once a year by Chinchar Maloney. We do this for a small fee of $85 during which every setting and mounting is checked and tightened. In addition to performing any necessary repair work, we will expertly clean and polish your jewelry at no additional cost. Contact us if you are interested in this service.
