"Making a Moment"
"I'm a dual purpose jeweller: I make my own rings and set my own diamonds. I love that I can help create a story that my customers can pass on through generations. I always encourage grooms when purchasing an engagement ring “to make a moment” the presentation should be special and treasured. I tell the grooms that "this isn't about you; it's about her." We can design that special ring for her together so it is a surprise. I can take a diamond and put it in a temporary mount that can be exchanged later so she can design her own ring. Present her with just the diamond and have her come in later and design her ring. Then you go out and "make a moment" on top of a mountain, on a beach at sunset or special dinner. However you want to create that romantic experience that will serve the both of you for the rest of your lives."
Buyers’ Choice Award
In 2000, Michael Dean won a Canadian Jeweller Buyer's Choice Award for his handmade platinum and 18K yellow gold ring with a Japanese pink freshwater button pearl, highlighted with four fancy blue diamonds.
