I am beyond happy with our rings. Villi and Terryn are a joy to work with. I receive endless compliments on my ring. They are kind and efficient and make you feel as though your business matters. We will never buy jewelry anywhere else!!!

The search will stop here because Christopher Duquet WILL create the ring you have been searching / dreaming / and hoping for!

My fiancé did his due diligence but as much as he had researched engagement rings, there was one problem - I have a very specific sense of style and knew the ring for me would have an antique heirloom feel, an Edwardian sensibility, and perhaps a dash of art deco design.

This ring was nowhere to be found in this day and age.

To the rescue came Christopher Duquet Fine Jewelry. What we were looking for was one of a kind, and Villi and Christopher were able to take our vision and turn it into a reality.

We explained to Villi what we had in mind and she immediately brought out a few examples from their showcase of elements we could incorporate into the ring. We immediately felt at ease - she really "got us."

Christopher, a true professional and artist, designed the ring collaboratively with us and the final product is stunning and original.
We loved it so much that we returned back for our wedding bands.

I chose to get my Engagement ring designed at Christopher Duquet because they custom make every setting, and had many vintage-look unique setting styles that I loved. I also wanted to give my business to a local store, rather than a big national chain. You will probably pay a bit more here than at a national chain, but the quality is worth it, and you will end up with a design that you won't see on tons of other women. Service was good as well. Not at all pushy, and respectful/willing to cater to our somewhat limited budget.

My husband purchased my engagement ring here, and we decided to purchase my wedding band here as well. I love both of the rings, and they complement each other well. Very friendly and helpful staff.

My engagement ring and our wedding rings all came from Christopher Duquet. We liked that it was a local small business and decided to check it out. When I was looking at engagement rings they kept notes about what I liked and showed them to my husband when he went in to pick out a ring.
Our wedding bands were also designed for us. His is stainless steel and very light and comfortable. Mine was made with a small notch to fit next to my engagement ring. Everyone we worked with was extremely helpful and it was well worth the cost for what we ended up with.

I am one of the few women on Earth who does not like jewelry so when it came time to pick out an engagement ring my fiance knew it would be difficult. We decided to work with Christopher Duquet because of the beautiful examples of vintage style rings on his website and after reading the positive reviews on yelp. Well let me tell you - none of the praise has been exaggerated. What a wonderful experience.

I wanted a sapphire engagement ring so they ordered a number of stones in our size,style and price range and I chose the one I liked most. From then on my fiance took over and worked with them to design the rest. I get so many compliments on this ring. It has beautiful engraving in leaf patterns all over it and every detail is so finely done. We went back for wedding bands and I will continue to visit for any other custom work I ever need. The service was wonderful as well. I can't recommend this store or the people who work there highly enough!

On a recommendation from his brother, my husband visited Christopher Duquet twelve years ago while searching for my engagement ring. After that first visit, he (and thus we!) became customers for life. Buying a piece of jewelry from Christopher is a collaborative process, and he and his team's creativity, patience, and ability to understand what you're looking for help bring it to reality. Even if you are not quite sure what you want, Christopher's ideas are endless, and he will help create something you will love.

I recently bought my 5th piece from Christopher. I wanted to create an everyday ring using my son's birthstone. My husband and I went in to talk with Christopher, discussed some of our ideas, and he and came up with a design that I never would have dreamed of, all while keeping our budget in mind. Within a week he emailed me renderings of the ring. From there he (patiently!) worked with us to tweak the design to make it just right for me.

Four of my five pieces are rings that I wear everyday, and each one is worthy of being an heirloom piece. The careful design process and consideration that goes behind each piece makes them that much more special. I highly recommend visiting Christopher Duquet. Everyone we have sent has been just as happy as we are, and we will certainly be back.
