In an article published on March 30th in the Prince George Free Press Teresa Mallam talks with Darrell Hubbell about the rose gold and diamond pendant that Hubbell Designer Goldsmiths will donate to the Prince George Symphony Orchestra's "The Red Violin".

On Saturday March 31st, the PGSO welcomed Elizabeth Pitcairn, a violin virtuoso, to play her Red Stradivarius violin. To honour this distinguished event we created a gold and diamond violin pendant titled "The Master's Touch". The raffle for this pendant raised over $6000 for the PGSO. Please read on for the rest of the story.

Though we specialize in making one of a kind, designed just for you pieces, we also do repairs and have a great respect for sentimental pieces that already exist. We can size or repair most jewellery items, including antiques, and will go out of our way to help with unusual items. We have repaired broken picture frames, ornamental containers, teapots, figurines and many other emotionally significant pieces. We can also help with some rather unusual requests, such as setting diamonds in gold teeth, and making pieces of artwork with silver and gold that incorporate natural materials, like geodes or coral. If you have something you need help with and don't know who to ask, try us.

Wedding jackets are a new approach to wedding bands. They look the same as three bands perfetly fitted together, but they aren't soldered together and don't twist and wear on one another. They are always perfectly lined up, but the engagement ring can be worn on it's own as well. Come take a look at how they work, and what they are all about.
