I eventually found Dikran, as my old wedding ring was uncomfortably small, and I saw an opportunity to redesign with something I felt would reflect the way my life is now. I had been to other designers, but could not really make my ideas understood. I did have a lengthy discussion with one jeweller maker, only to be told what she would do for me- not remotely what I asked for, even after I had explained what I wanted. It was quite frustrating. Being a creative soul I needed someone to understand my concept, and then interpretate it with flair and skill. Dikran is one of those rare jewellery designers that not only makes your ring, but sets the stones as well- beautifully.
I now have a once in a life time ring ( although he is starting another for me!), that is otherworldly. Dikran takes immense pride in his work, and is willing to take the time to understand what you want, although he will make solid suggestions re the fit, the comfort, and other things you may forget in the excitement of designing something.
My husband had my engagement ring made by Dikran of Manjian Design, and it is perfect!
Although I was not involved in the buying process for it, as my now husband surprised me with it, he felt really comfortable during the process, as everything was explained clearly along the way. We then had our wedding bands made by him and it really was such a seamless process! We will be going back to him for all our jewelry needs in the future (and hopefully there will be plenty of it!)
A year on and I still get so many compliments on my engagement ring quality without the price tag!!
Its not easy to find a tradesman with his qualities these days, my friends have also turned to him.
