ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Drawing inspiration from architecture and antiquity, Ray designs and builds his masterpieces, all of which are created by hand, in his light filled atelier. Ray is not just a master designer and craftsman but also passionate about gemstones. His perspective on the stones he selects is both unique and heartening. When searching for an ideal gem, he doesn’t prioritize perfection. In Ray’s view, a perfect stone has no character or as he puts it “no street cred”. It’s the imperfections – the inclusions, the color bands etc that give a gemstone value, “that make it real”. He chooses stones not because they are flawless, but because they are individual. Ray strives to enhance the natural beauty of the stone through the design of the jewel. Renowned for his exquisite metalwork, profound technical skills, and exquisitely cut gemstones, Ray produces timelessly elegant jewelry. In addition to his own signature collections, Ray also creates custom pieces and refashions heirlooms for his clients.
