3 Carat G, Flawless Old European Cut

Cutting Diamonds in America

I specialize in restoring, refashioning and reselling antique, vintage, and modern diamonds - maximizing the inherent value of all styles.


If you wish to beautify your own heirloom diamond - or sell it, trade it or make a unique new purchase - you deserve a master cutter's expertise. Please contact me. 

All cutting is done in my workshop.

American Rose Brilliant -Black & White

The American Rose Brilliant

My signature cut is the American Rose Brilliant. It combines two traditional styles - the artistry of a classic rose cut crown, and the precision of a highly reflective modern pavilion - outperforming standard rounds.

Rough diamonds are not readily available to artisan cutters. For this reason, "estate" diamonds are my basic raw material. These Old Mine and European Cut diamonds entered the American marketplace in the pre-WWII era.  

Sourced, designed, and cut exclusively in the USA.
