STUart Jewelry Designs
Stuart Coffee has been a jeweler for over 55 years. He started out as a diamond setter, setting jewelry for popular stores and shops around New York. As a self taught goldsmith he began designing and creating his own jewelry. At first he made original pieces for family, but gradually he created more designs for others. Today, everyone can see his original designs here at www.STUartjewelrydesigns.com
The difference is immediately apparent when you look at Stuart’s designs. Nothing is mass produced. This is the opposite of fast fashion and faceless labels.
Browse the site looking for an original piece, an award winning design, or work with him to bring your own ideas to life. All of the wedding bands, engagement rings, earrings, necklaces, and other fine jewelry are created by hand by Stuart. Many of his pieces are one-of-a-kind because of his use of uniquely shaped beautiful stones.
Often clients come to Stuart with their grandmother’s ring they want to redesign into something more modern, a stone they want to reset, or an antique they want to refresh. Some even have elaborate hand or computer drawings, and Stuart will help make those ideas a reality.
The process starts with sketching and carving wax models. Through the lost wax method and hand fabrication, Stuart then creates the finished pieces. He works in 14k and 18k white, yellow, and rose gold, platinum, diamonds, genuine stones and Tahitian pearls. Although Stuart uses traditional jewelry making methods, he enjoys inventing new fabrication methods.
It is a rare experience these days when you can talk directly with the artist/designer and know you’re getting his personal attention. Stuart prides himself on customer service. He can be reached via email or phone, where he will personally work with you to create your perfect piece. Or if you are in the New York City area, contact him to set up an appointment to meet one-on-one.
