A couple wished to create a stunning engagement ring based on our  Cool Ice design.  So we first helped them select a beautiful oval diamond and then hand crafted their ring.  Here is what they had to say ...

I am thrilled to report success in using the ring you made to talk the future Mrs Smith into signing on to the adventure.  I surprised her with the ring at the steak house at the new Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.  I bribed the restaurant to give us the table next to a huge waterfall, and had them bring the ring out with desert.

We helped a client create a custom engraved platinum band set with vibrant Pink Sapphires.

I wanted to let you know that my ring arrived safely. It is absolutely stunning!  I don't want to take it off!  The engraving is exactly what I wanted.  It really is a beautiful work of art.  Thank you so much for everything.  It has been a pleasure working with you.

This beautiful Choker and Sapphire and Diamond slide were purchased by a client who gave them to her daughter.  This is the nice note she sent us.

Hi Judi,

My daughter LOVES the necklace!

To quote from her email  "The stones are set in a beautifully unique way, and the choker accentuates it perfectly."

Thanks very much.

For a young attorney we created a custom ring featuring a striking 3 1/3 carat Old European-cut diamond.  To give the ring a little extra pizazz we added forty-four small Fancy Pink diamonds.  His fiancé loved the finished jewel.
Kathy absolutely loves the ring and I want to thank you again for doing such a good job. An Old European-cut diamond set with Fancy Pink diamonds in a handcrafted platinum ring.

Not only did we get to work with an exceptional designer to create the ring, but Judi also used only the best engravers, diamond setters and other "specialists" to create an heirloom to last for generations to come.  I had an incredibly positive experience working with Judi at Bijoux Extraordinaire and will undoubtedly return for other pieces in the future.

Creating a custom ring requires a close working relationship with a client,  especially when working long distance.  We take great pride in having created beautiful rings for clients throughout the world.

Star sapphire engagement ring with matching custom-fit band. At first I was hesitant about creating an engagement ring and wedding band over the Internet,  especially considering I was having the rings handmade.  However,  after corresponding with Judi Anderson via email and telephone,  I was confident that she would deliver a quality product that met my budget constraints.  I was right!

Judi and her staff made me feel at ease and her considerable knowledge about gem stones and hand crafted jewelry was impressive.  Judi was responsive to my questions and receptive to my feedback and suggestions throughout the process of designing and building the rings.  I received the rings in the mail a few days ago and they are perfect!  My new fiance couldn't be happier.  Thank you Judi!

We often help couples find fancy colored and unusually shaped diamonds for their engagement rings.  Recently we helped a couple in California acquire a fancy pink diamond.

I am writing to thank you for helping me and my fiance locate our pink diamond.  When we started four months ago to search for a stone for my engagement ring,  we were very disappointed with the results of the jewelers and brokers we did business with.  Because of the area we live in,  we felt many of the diamonds were overpriced and of poor quality.  No one seemed to care about meeting our needs.

I was hesitant at first about working with someone who was in another state.  I looked at your web site and noticed you did a lot of business with people from all over and you also had some comprehensive information about fancy diamonds.  I am very glad our search engine pointed us to your web site.  Your response time was exceptional and the best thing was that you were honest.

The diamond is perfect  -  I am very pleased with its size,  color and clarity.  We had it appraised by a friend and he was very pleased with our purchase as well.  Thank you for all your help.

Recently,  we worked with a knowledgeable client who describes herself as  "not too easy to please with either gemstones or settings."  Here are her comments on the  tanzanite and diamond ring  we helped her acquire: Engraved platinum ring with tanzanite and trilliant diamonds.

I picked up the ring at the post office this morning.  You certainly have the packing down to a science. :)

The ring is absolutely beautiful!  I haven't seen a tanzanite of this size,  color or clarity anywhere.  The size is also perfect.

I will tell you that I have spent a fair portion of today staring at the ring and smiling. :)

Thank you for making this such a pleasure!

An engagement ring is a special piece of jewelry which must be just right.   Here's how we helped a couple create the perfect sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
For a long time, I'd been thinking that I'd like a platinum engagement ring with a sapphire rather than a diamond, but when we got engaged I couldn't find anything in the stores that I liked at all.   Most sapphire rings were big gold dinner rings, or were paired with large diamonds.   So I turned to the internet and found Bijoux Extraordinaire.   I was taken with the elegance and simplicity of many of the rings there, and started to think seriously about having one made.

Judi was helpful with my many questions right from the start and I fell 'in love' with one particular style of platinum and diamond ring.   So Judi created for us a modified version with a one-carat sapphire and two small side diamonds for a little sparkle and shape - and now I can't stop looking at it!   It's beautiful - and we'll be back for Bill's wedding band with small inlaid sapphires in the spring!

Thanks,   Liz and Bill

Diamond and Sapphire ring. Sapphires and diamonds are elegant gemstones that require just the right setting.  We often work with clients to locate exceptional gemstones and then create the perfect custom design to showcase the gems.

I am getting more and more fond of the ring as I wear it.  The diamond is so vibrant.  It is obvious that it is a very good one.  The design is a very comfortable one to wear and it never catches on anything.  So, may I say that I have been very happy with the whole process involved in acquiring it.

Recently we helped a couple locate and purchase a fancy yellow diamond...

The search for a diamond can be a rather daunting task.   I looked toward the internet for some ideas and information only to be bombarded with web sites promising wholesale pricing "without the middleman".   After contacting a few of these individuals my concerns about shopping over the internet for such an important and expensive item only increased.

Then I found Bijoux Extraordinaire, Ltd.   I spoke with Judi and immediately felt we had a good rapport.   She was very responsive to my questions and concerns and immediately gave me an idea of how many stones she actually had at her disposal.   Since I was looking for a fancy yellow diamond, she definitely had her work cut out for her.

Judi searched through information on over sixty stones, and after numerous emails and hours on the phone, we were able to narrow it down to the top four stones.

My fiancee and I chose to make the trip to Manchester from Chicago to look at the diamonds.   What a pleasant surprise!   Judi presented the stones is a very relaxed atmosphere.   She explained the pros and cons of each diamond and I was able to compare them side by side.   We didn't feel pressured or hurried at any stage of the transaction because Judi always took the time to address all our questions.

I highly recommend Judi's Gemstone Brokerage service to anyone looking for a diamond or colored gemstone.   We look forward to doing business with her in the future!

We helped another couple create a  custom engagement ring  and they found the ideal wedding band in our estate jewelry gallery...

Tulip-set engagement ring with pear-shaped diamond.
Steven and I were looking to design my engagement ring when we came across the Bijoux Extraordinaire web site.    We were impressed by the quality of the craftsmanship displayed there and soon found ourselves talking with Judi.    She walked us through every step of the process from finding the perfect diamond (which we did!) to designing the perfect ring.    We had been to other jewelers previously and were amazed at the amount of personal attention we received from Judi;  her honesty and patience were especially important to us.    Even during the busy Christmas season Judi went out of her way time and again to meet our budget and time constraints.    We even found my wedding band at an estate show Bijoux Extraordinaire hosted!    We could not possibly be happier with the entire experience and look forward to working with Bijoux Extraordinaire in the future.

Thanks,   Kristy and Steve

We also help couples create imaginative wedding gifts...

Bijoux Extraordinaire is truly that......... extraordinary.   After searching in NY city for the right jeweler to create a pair of Hockey theme cufflinks for my husband as his wedding gift, I happened to be on the internet when I came across Bijoux web site.   After the first call I knew I had found the right place.   Judi was a great listener, allowed me to be actively involved in the designing, and her follow-up and relationship skills were very much appreciated.   The cufflinks could not have been more perfect.   I strongly recommend their abilities, finished product, the whole experience.
