Etienne Perret in the Media

Gorman, jewelry, Jordan, mellee, pave, platinum, ring, wedding, zirconiaWe love it when respected members of the media and fine jewelry industry show their good taste by recognizing Etienne's work in their online publications! This week, industry leader, Fruchtman Jewelry Marketing Specialists ran an e-newsletter showing off the holiday Jewelry Wish List for each member of their prestigious team! While most of the men took the conservative route, sticking to various designer watches, it was a pleasant surprise when we found out that Fruchtman's VP of Client Services, Megan Meinerding's, holiday wish was an Etienne Perret design.


One of Etienne's newest designs, the 12mm "Canary Bezel" black Gem Ceramic engagement/fashion ring is truly something to drool over, so we understand Megan's desires! And it's on our personal wishlist here at Etienne's that Megan will get her Christmas wish! So, here's a shout out to whoever that special someone is in Megan's life...make the right decision and don't end up in the doghouse this holiday season!

You can view Etienne's complete Colored Diamond Ceramic Collection and much more on the Etienne Perret Colored Diamond Jewelry Facebook page!

The Incredible "Olympia Diamond Collection"

Michelle Graff, a friend and editor for the National Jeweler Magazine recently wrote an interesting blog post, "Afternoon at the Museum," on the incredible "Olympia Diamond Collection" showing at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. 

 Relating her visit to see these awe-inspiring gems to childhood memories of  fieldtrips to the museum, Michelle successfully draws readers into the lure and the splendor of these incredible gems! 


"So when approached by gemologist Joshua Sheby of New York-based Scarselli Diamonds Inc. about spending an afternoon in the museum's Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems, I naturally jumped at the chance."        -Michelle Graff

Exciting New Designs

yellow starlight flat bands

A classic Etienne design, the flat starlight wedding band is an exceptionally stylish yet masculine mens' ring & is equally elegant for women. Originally created over 25 years ago using gold and white diamonds, this style has evolved to incorporate colored diamonds and the option for a bi-metal design. The matching pair of 8mm rings above were custom made in platinum & 18kt gold each with 1.70tcw of natural color cognac, yellow and white diamonds for loyal customers of I. Gorman Jewelers in Washington DC.
