Atelier Gigi Testimonials

"I was referred to Gigi from a friend, and after meeting with her once, I knew she was the right choice for designing our engagement ring. She is so personable and easy to work with. She understood my poor, man-fluenced description of what I wanted the ring to look like. Gigi was timely but did not rush to get the drawings and ideas out of my head and onto pen, paper, and computer. The ring ended up being perfect. Actually, better than perfect! Gigi's desire to create something unique and beautiful really came through in the engagement ring. She worked with a strict deadline (a surprise proposal trip), and worked well within my budget. I recommend her for anyone looking for custom jewelry, and will most likely work with her again for other pieces to follow. Thank you for everything Gigi!" Jordan S., Oakland, CA

"Every time I look at my beautiful custom-designed wedding band, I realize how lucky I was to meet Gigi. We had an instant rapport, and she had an instant understanding of my style and taste. Even my husband was unable to resist her charm, bringing home a gift or two at her suggestion. Gigi really knows her business, and it's a pleasure to work with her.” Stephanie B., San Francisco, CA

"Gigi was an incredible atelier to work with. We had a tight turnaround for our wedding. We also wanted something unique for a beautiful sapphire stone we had sourced through another channel. Given those constraints, Gigi pulled through and delivered a drop-dead gorgeous setting that I am extremely happy with. Throughout the process, Gigi was attentive, warm, and very knowledgeable. I felt like I was in good hands the whole way through. Truly a lovely experience from to start to finish." Shannon A., San Francisco, CA

"Gigi has beautifully "repurposed" into contemporary designs several pieces of my mom's jewelry which I wouldn't wear otherwise. A perfect solution as I keep mom close! Gigi is very creative, sensitive to budgets, patient and enthusiastic. A real pleasure to work with. I will definitely use her again and have recommended Gigi to my own friends."

"I highly recommend Gigi! I initially went to Gigi for assistance in selecting an engagement ring for my fiancé. I had an idea of what I was looking for, but needed help. Gigi was terrific. She is very knowledgeable. Equally important, she is very patient and understanding. There is no sales pitch or pressure. She truly wanted to make sure I understood the options and that the selection of a special engagement ring was the right one. With Gigi's help, I purchased a beautiful ring and my fiancé is thrilled. In fact, my fiancé and I went back to Gigi to select and purchase our wedding bands. Bottom line:  If you are interested in beautiful, custom engagement rings and wedding bands, you really should talk to Gigi." David S., Moraga, CA

"Gigi is a true professional and helped me create an engagement ring that was perfect, down to the very last detail.  I was a bit nervous about the jewelry-making experience, but she was incredibly patient with me and was able to help me understand the different steps of the process to get comfortable for the road ahead. What really impressed me is how much Gigi truly cares about the client.  She will do anything and everything possible to help the client get the piece that they envisioned, and she is very honest and fair about pricing. Lastly, Gigi is very personable and friendly. I was always excited to pop over to see the progress on my piece because she's so much fun to talk to. I really could not have asked for a better person to help create my engagement ring. Thank you so much, Gigi!" Marissa T., San Francisco, CA
