Last week I got to participate in am amazing bunch with Marie Claire and Simon G. Jewelry. The brunch was held at the Simon G. headquarters, and they showed us every step of how they create their beautiful jewelry, from heating the metals, to hand carving wax molds, to setting the stones by hand. It was so interesting to see and I really got a feel for the time and artistry that goes into each piece of jewelry from Simon G.
The table setting alone was absolutely breathtaking! We were definitely treated like royalty.
These were just our appetizers. Can you even handle this?! I might have piled a bunch on a giant napkin as we were leaving to head home...
This is a tree mold. The gold/silver is poured into these molds to create the ring.
This is the file cabinet with molds of every single ring that Simon G. has ever made. It was right next to a giant vault that housed all of their precious gems.
When you order a ring from Simon G, they make a custom wax mold of the ring, so you can see exactly what it will look like, and allow you to make any adjustments.
One of the beautiful diamond rings we saw being set. Each one of those tiny pave diamonds is hand set, and goes through a thorough testing process to make sure every one is secure.
