"I wanted to surprise my wife for our 20th wedding anniversary with a custom designed ring that said, "I value you; you are precious to me; you are unique, creative and beautiful" to my wife. My wife's existing wedding ring already featured high-quality diamonds (purchased in the Caribbean) that we loved, but the design was uninspired-- typical retail jewelry. Philippe Medawar started with our existing ring, retaining its best diamonds and adding more of his own, and designed a one of a kind masterpiece (just as unique as my wife and nearly as beautiful). The finished custom-designed ring is flawless-- an absolute treasure. It is asymmetrical and unconventional, yet perfectly balanced. The stones float in the setting in a way that maximizes light and brilliance. I have no idea how Philippe accomplished this feat; it looks impossibly delicate, yet is sturdy and secure for every day wear. And Philippe's attention to detail is unrivaled. He designed the ring in such a way that every diamond is exposed to maximum light, and yet the setting is entirely smooth with no edges that will catch on clothing or risk jarring loose a stone. I cannot tell you how many breathless compliments my wife has received on this ring. I've never seen its equal.
Some visitors may stop in at Philippe's store in Cascade, MI, expecting to find a typical inventory of retail jewelry and to speak with a salesperson. Instead, in Philippe, you've found the rarest of gems -- a true craftsman, master jeweler and watchmaker who creates one of a kind works of art. And to top it off, Philippe is honest, trustworthy and generous with his clients. His work is amazing, and he consistently delights clients who he designs for.
When you want to commemorate a milestone with a gift that is truly unique and special, you should strongly consider meeting with Philippe Medawar to design a work of wearable art. He's the best."
