They were wonderful! I really loved one of their designs but was hesitant since it would be an online purchase (and they're way too far to travel to). They worked out a way for me to be able to really see what the ring would look like on my hand by making it for me in silver, and it was gorgeous. We returned the silver one, and they applied the full cost toward the gold version. I can't wait to have it on my finger every day!

I just happened to have stumbled upon deSignet's ad in Renaissance Magazine a couple falls ago and fell in love with their designs! I especially like that they will design jewelry for you (sketch it out for free and all)! I showed the boy their site and we both agreed that they were the people that would make our rings!

The boy and I scoped out the engagement ring I liked then he did some serious thinking and researching. He came back with an even better idea that I couldn't pass up! They have these engagement / wedding rings combined called Reverse Cradles. You get the engagement ring with a sterling silver insert to hold the slot for the wedding ring. When it's time, the wedding ring then slides in and there is no need for 2 rings side by side on your finger! It's a totally cool idea and I don't know anyone that has anything like it! This is so completely me! Always standing out in a crowd!

So the boy worked with Kim... She's awesome! She was quick to assist with all of his questions and worked with him on the design. She also gave him advice on what stone would be best for me. I don't remove jewelry and I'm kinda tough on it. She did a great job resolving it all and getting him the most perfect ring for me! It took a week to create and send it (though the boy told me it would be longer so to throw me off and surprise me!).

He did it on St. Patrick's Day with our favorite Kilt Rock Band, our families, and 20+ of our friends... It was amazing! Thanks bunches Kim and deSignet! We got my wedding band a couple weeks before the big shindig. It turned out just as amazing!

Just a quick update... Kim was also great in assisting with getting me an appraisal so that I can get my ring (as well as some of my other important jewelry) insured. If you ask for this information immediately after purchase it's a quick and easy process since the value hasn't changed. Always have your sparklies insured!

My fiance and I ordered our wedding rings from DeSignet International, entirely online. It turned out great! We were looking for matching Celtic-knot-inspired wedding rings that could be made in a continuous ring of gold, in order to nod to both of our family traditions (he is Irish, I am Jewish). This type of ring was surprisingly hard to find! Even though we live in NYC where there are lots of jewelers, we liked ordering from someplace that had specific experience with this type of ring. DeSignet was happy to work with us, and answered all my questions by e-mail before we made the purchase. The value was reasonable, though it doesn't look like they have adjusted their prices to match the recent swings in gold prices.

Anyway, the rings came out beautiful and arrived on time! Not sure what more I can ask for :)

The band for my engagement ring was purchased from Deignet International and it is faboulous! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect band. It was custom made by the jewelers and shipped out in about 2 weeks. I would do business with them again.

We did this entirely online, as we live nowhere near Niagara Falls. When I found their website, I knew I wanted them to do our bands. Then I realized that they could use some of the diamonds from my grandmother's 50th anniversary ring in my own wedding ring set. The results were gorgeous and unique, not to mention affordable. (To give you an idea, a local jeweler wanted FIVE TIMES the price to do the same thing. . . .) If you are looking for something that you can't find everywhere else, look here!

My husband and I wanted to design my engagement ring together - we wanted something unique, that would reflect our personalities. We were really happy when we found Designet - as they are just outside Buffalo, and we live in Rochester.

The first time I visited the store with a friend to see if the design we had in mind would be possible. Straight away, they drew a pencil sketch of my ring and it was exactly what we had imagined. They then worked closely with my husband on the details. We were even warned of the risks of a bezel set for a marquis diamond - but they were also supportive of allowing us make the final decision. They made my engagement and wedding band at the same time - so they would be a perfect shadow of each other.

The final product is lovely - I have received many compliments on it. I would only say that don't expect a 100% perfect piece of Jewlery - that you might get from a chain store. These rings are made by hand, with loving care, so there are some imperfections (e.g. some of the holes on my love knot are not perfectly smooth and the wedding band is about 0.5 mm off on one side from the engagement ring). But that's what makes it unique - there will not be another ring like it in the world!

Unsure about ordering something as big as a ring online, my fiancee and I drove out for a weekend at the Falls, combined with a trip to the DeSignet HQ. A tiny shop on the outside, but don't be fooled, it's incredible! They were incredibly helpful, and they are definitely masters at their work!
I get comments every day about my gorgeous reverse cradle still 8 months later! If you want a unique and amazing piece of jewelry from a family owned business - THIS IS THE PLACE!

I was searching for unique nautical-themed rings when I discovered DeSignet International. They were the only jeweler that I was able to find that made a Turks Head Knot ring without making it look too bulky. Because I don't trust online companies, I was happy to see that they had a store near Niagra, NY, which is only a few hours away from where my husband is stationed with the Coast Guard. We called them a couple of days ahead of time, and let him know what we were looking for. He said he had examples in stock to show us, and he'd be happy to have us. After a five hour drive, we waited for two hours for him to make a mock-up of what the ring would look like because he in fact didn't have any examples in stock, and spent the first twenty minutes of our appointment looking for it. We were skeptical after that, because he waited until the last minute to even look, knowing how far away we were coming from. Once the rings finally came in we were able to relax; they were perfect. Despite the poor customer service during our visit, the finished product was beautiful. I am glad that we didn't order them offline, because we had to make a lot of changes to what was online for both of us, but we now have beautiful custom wedding bands that we are very, very happy with.

Designet was absolutely wonderful to deal with! They are a custom design jewellery designer out of New York State and we are on the West Coast of Canada. They were extremely responsive via email. Very knowledgable in the different metals. They were very mindful of the price, even offering ways of reducing the custom brokerage fees for crossing the border. Skill of the craftsman is AMAZING! Shipping super fast! We love our rings.

Mandy was AMAZING! We got our rings unbelievably fast, and they worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted...which wasn't an easy task, since I already had my engagement ring and they needed to design bands that would complement it. Their website is terrific, but speaking to Mandy in person was extremely helpful -- they were probably the most stress-free vendor of our entire wedding.
