Phillips and Fredricks

I had purchased a ring on 47th street last January, the setting was too much for me to carry off so it sat sadly in my jewelry box not being worn. I decided to have the rubies pulled from the ring (seen here on the left) and made into a new simpler ring.


I decided to work with a local jeweler. Rick from Phillips and Fredricks in Bernardsville NJ. All total the project took about 2 and half weeks including them sourcing the stones, having a wax for me to try on and delivering the completed ring.There were zero issues and I have to say having a local bench who is priced like the online folks is very appealing.

The stones being shown in order after I had chosen which pair of diamonds I wanted.

My first time getting to try on a wax.

For scale with my daily LHR.

You can see it is a nice low setting.

From above to get an idea of spacing.

The wax with the stones. I was trying to get the stones in various lights so you can see how lovely they really are but it is hard when you are indoors. (I know I do not really have to tell the good folks of PS this.)

And now for the best part of it all the finished ring. I snuck out and lunch and picked it up!

Absolutely beautiful! Those rubies are perfect!
Thank you! I was very attracted to them when I bought the original ring, but as it turns out they needed a different setting to win my heart.

Stones are evenly spaced

You really do not see the prongs in person
