I came to Mel with two antique brooches, both late Victorian or early Edwardian, both passed down through my mother’s family—one diamond and platinum, one amethyst and diamond and gold. I wanted to have them made into jewelry I would actually wear, but had been putting it off because I was nervous about the process…however, Mel’s knowledge of jewelry history and appreciation of the original work told me immediately that the brooches and I were in good hands. He worked with me to create SIX gorgeous new pieces that fit my aesthetic and my lifestyle—all elegant and special, but also pretty and simple enough for me to wear casually, which is just what I wanted. He was easy to collaborate with, had great ideas and helped me sort through mine, and he really knows his stuff! Highly recommend.
Mel and the team over an Wedding Ring Originals were great. I purchased an engagement ring and two wedding bands. They were extremely professional and understood what we were looking for, and were able to deliver. I would recommend them to anyone who is in the market!
Mel is an absolute delight of a person, a consummate professional, and an understanding gentleman. Not only did he custom make my wife’s dream ring to her specs and requests, he was able to have mine made within the timeframe and even went so far as to give us an identical loaner for the wedding because we had waited until the absolute last week to buy our wedding rings. He was available beyond what you’d expect from an average salesperson and ring maker. He made the entire experience so lovely, and we will definitely be returning customers for future ring needs. Mel, if you’re reading this, thanks for being you!!
Mel is efficient, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be around. He helped create a beautiful and bespoke wedding ring ahead of schedule. I hardly ever wear jewelry so I wanted something very special and Mel delivered perfectly. I am so grateful and lucky to have found him in Manhattan. Mel's work is the best in NYC for truly original, beautiful wedding rings. I have shopped around many retail jewelers and none of them had the expertise and service that Mel provides for wedding rings. Truly nowhere better.
Mel was an absolute delight to work with in creating our wedding rings. He listened to what we wanted, offered suggestions, taught us a ton and was very patient with my indecision. I should also mention that the quality is amazing and the prices more than reasonable! In the end we have two beautiful rings that are totally unique to us and that we absolutely LOVE, thank you!
