My wedding band was made by Van Craeynest 20 years ago and I love it. For my anniversary, I wanted an anniversary band to match. Without ever going to the shop and only using photos and e mails to describe my ideal ring, Kyle and crew created my dream anniversary band. It matches my wedding band perfectly and is gorgeous.... read full comment
From start to finish, Van Craeynest went above and beyond. I had a tight timeline, but they made it happen. And the ring... AMAZING! Highly recommended!
Such a gorgeous selection of jewelry. Excellent staff and the head jeweler is personable and willing to spend the time to show you around the factory and teach you about all the wonderful inner workings of the machines and how they make all the items by hand.
Van Craeynest designs and tools reach back to the late 19th century, both in origin and inspiration. Many of the machines and special tooling we use are over 100 years old, however, they are not the reasons for our exquisite work. Brilliance in all artistic endeavors springs from the knowledge of line, form and composition as well as a solid command of the tools and techniques used in working the medium.
Since the beginning of the company, our studio workrooms have been organized around a European style apprenticeship system. We train all of the aspiring artisians in traditional techniques of the jewelry craft, including skills for which we have no current use.
