Gold Diamond Bezel Set Engagement Ring resetting"I wanted a way to combine both of my grandmothers’ engagement ring diamonds with one from a pendant my husband had given me on our wedding morning. I was looking for a setting that was different, something arty and contemporary. Surfing the internet, I discovered several settings on Amy’s website that I loved, so I called her to talk. Amy immediately put me at ease, and described her process. I sent her the stones, and then we consulted again. The ring is everything I wanted; I absolutely love it. I also had Amy re-work an antique sapphire cocktail ring I had inherited, and wanted to wear as a pendant. It, too, is beautiful." Custom Gold and Diamond Bezel Set Ring 
- Susan K., Mooresville, NC

Finger Fit® Adjustable ShankDiamond Deco Inspired Engagement Ring"My husband and I are thrilled with my newly remade engagement ring. Amy is a genius! Sadly my ring in its original setting was way too small to fit over my knuckles , however, my finger was still about the sake size. We hired The Perfect Setting to reset it adding new stones and updating the style. Amy suggested the (finger fit®) adjustable band to allow me to wear it on both fingers and create a sleek, comfortable fit. We had never heard of this option and it worked out beautifully. We worked on the design together and Amy was able to show me computerized images prior to committing to the final design. The end result is beyond gorgeous. I will never use anyone else again. The fit is perfect and will never have to be remade!" Custom Deco Inspired Emerald Cut Diamond Ring                                                                                      

- Mary & Todd K., Laural Hollow, NY

 

Pearl Necklace 18K Gold Aquamarine PendantAquamarine Pearl Necklace"I've worked with Amy on several successful projects. She's got fine ideas, is easy to work with and, most important, delivers great results. The settings have been consistently well executed and, needless to say, well received."      Custom Made Aquamarine Removable Pendant          
-  Jim P., Verona, New Jersey

Custom Claddagh Celtic Knot Ring Sapphire Heart"The ring is gorgeous, and Amy was very helpful throughout. She's willing to talk through what you want, and to communicate enough to make sure that she knows what that is. "Custom Claddagh Celtic Knot Ring Blue Sapphire Heart

Resetting Diamonds Bezel Setting 18K Yellow GoldI loved working with Amy. She transformed some old jewelry that was sitting at the bottom of my jewelry box into beautiful pieces I now wear daily. She was so much fun to work with and helped me through the entire process step by step. You need someone you really trust when working with valuable pieces and Amy is just that; I felt completely safe and taken care of with her. She has great taste and will not let you make a wrong move."

Margaret S., NYC

 

Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Ring"Amy, thank you so much. The ring is beautiful! You are the best at what you do. Your explanations and demonstrations were clear and concise. As a result, I felt that I had a good understanding of diamonds and what I was purchasing. It was a great experience and the end result was perfect. Oh, and Angela loves it!"

Michael H, North Franklin, CT

 

 

Oval Diamond Halo Ring"I have worked with Amy on numerous pieces and each one she's done has been amazing. She recently designed the most stunning engagement ring and took all the elements she knew I would love and put them together in this three stone halo ring. When my fiance proposed and took out the ring I was speechless (for a few reasons)! When he put that ring on my finger I could not stop staring at it and I still can't! I have received so many compliments on how different and unique it is and with Amy you know you are getting the highest quality. She is creative and really thinks outside the box. She comes up with ideas that you might not have thought of but when she proposes them you immediately think, wow what a great idea/concept. Amy takes into consideration everything from your lifestyle to how you wear your jewelry and really makes the piece work for you. Even if you have something that was passed down that you want to re-work, she'll come up with an idea. She turned a small onyx piece with my grandfather's initial into a charm that is backed in gold with his birthday that I wear every single day. She knows the sentimental value of jewelry as well and anyone who choses Amy as their personal jeweler will not be disappointed!"

Alexandra A., Staten Island, NY

 

Custom Diamond Engagement Ring"Amy and The Perfect Setting came highly recommended to me from a trusted family member and I can't express how grateful I am. Going into the process of finding an engagement ring for my fiancée, I was admittedly naive when it came to diamonds and the specifics about their nature. Amy was kind enough to teach me various aspects of her craft, while helping me find the perfect ring. After sending Amy a picture of what my fiancée wanted and explaining the budget and timeframe that I hoped to stay within, Amy promptly found exactly what I was looking for. I was able to propose to my fiancée exactly how and when I wanted to and she absolutely loves her ring. Thanks to Amy, what seemed like a potentially stressful process, became seamless and enjoyable. I was more then pleased with her professionalism and patience and would recommend her services in a heartbeat. Many Thanks"

Lotus Flower Engagement Ring

"Beyond the obvious beauty of her designs (see her website and it is immediately clear!), Amy was a pleasure to work with because she was very quick, organized, and made sure I understood the design process from beginning to end. She met a very tight deadline for the ring that I custom designed through her, and the result were exquisite. This was the first time I worked with a custom designer, but I know that she is who I will always go through in the future. She is very personable and responsive, and she has a valuable understanding of all aspects of jewelry - she is a great designer but also can help with having family stones certified/appraised, having rough stones cut, buying loose gems or diamonds, etc. I couldn't have made a better choice." click here to read the creation story

Emerald Cut Diamond Eternity Band"Amy did an excellent job for me and my fiancée when we were in a tough spot with an engagement ring (purchased somewhere else) that needed to be remade. She was personable, enjoyable to work with and delivered an incredible product in a short period of time. After working with Amy on the engagement ring we asked her to make Liz's wedding ring as well, which turned out beautifully. I highly recommend Amy's work and would be happy to serve as a reference." 

- Nat H, Boston, MA

"I found Amy Certilman through an engine search online.  I had a very old diamond that was left to me and  wanted a special ring made.   Amy is extremely patient and listened to my description.  She had some beautiful designs in her portfolio.  She and I discussed what kind of ring I wanted which was a "right hand" ring.  Amy worked on the first design but it wasn't exactly what I wanted.  So she said she would start again.  I saw something I liked and showed it to her.  With that  design she made some important changes so that the light could shine through the diamond.  The ring is magnificent!   I highly recommend Amy!  She is extremely knowledgeable, listens and designs one of a kind jewelry! You won't be disappointed with the end result!!"

Karen P, Cutchogue, NY

Custom Marquise Diamond Engagement Ring"One day, I was just scrolling the web on having rings dipped from gold to platinum, and somehow I ran into Amy’s website and caught sight of two rings with tiny diamonds all around. They were also hammered. I'm a huge fan of hammered jewelry. So, I called her, and we took off from there. Since I turned it over to Amy Certilman, I don't have the words to express how beautiful her work is. My wedding ring is the prettiest setting I have ever seen.Ever!! I am so tickled I found her."

- Tammy V, Perrin, TX

Diamond Infinity Bracelet"Amy is a pleasure to work with on both custom and existing jewelry projects. She will thoroughly research, design and advise and deliver on time and always with professionalism."
- Debora C, NYC

Platinum and Diamond Wedding Bands"Amy designed both the wedding bands for my husband and I. We had under 2 weeks to turn everything around and made it happen! The experience and process was so efficient and delightful. We love our rings and we love how easy Amy made the whole process for us. We'll definitely be going back for other pieces in the future."

- Esther & Symon, San Francisco, CA

 

"Amy is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and creative. She has a gift for "seeing" the treasures in previously unworn pieces, a knack for finding what's new and on trend, and always honors the classic and timeless elements of good style. I have worked with Amy on many projects and have recommended her to others with equally positive results. Whether you're looking for something new and fabulous or seeking to breathe new life into something you already own, Amy will provide "the perfect setting!"

-Karen A, West Hills, NY

 

Three stone diamond ring"Making a purchase like this online can be a bit unsettling at first, but that was quickly gone after starting work with Amy. Everything about the process was great. From the initial specs (where I went around, then back to the original design), to delivery, Amy's professionalism and communication was excellent. Upon receipt, her craftsmanship was even more evident that the photos sent. I (and the current wearer of the ring) couldn't be more happy with her work. I would definitely recommend Amy."

- Tim V, Washington, DC

 

Cushion Cut Diamond Halo Ring
"Amy found us a stellar engagement ring, all behind my now-fiancees back as I was intent on surprising her, and to say the least, my fiancee is thrilled with the outcome! Amy was very accommodating and thoughtful throughout the process, and I found her to be extremely knowledgeable at her trade. She ended up finding a ring of great quality within the specifications that I wanted at any amazing price point. I would certainly recommend her to others, and insist they see the process through with her, as she doesn't quit until she finds exactly what you want!"
- Rob M, NYC
Custom Diamond Ring Bezel Set "Even though I had a photo and images of what my new ring from Amy would look like, and even though she sent me photos of my ring while I was on vacation, I was not prepared for how gorgeous it was in real life! Amy has designed a ring that is beautiful and modern, yet classic. It is so comfortable to wear, and lays beautifully on my finger. It is original and reflects my style. Amy has an uncanny knack for knowing who her customer is, and providing them with creative ideas, amazing service, and very high quality jewelry. After using 'The Perfect Setting', I can't imagine going into a "regular" jewelry store ever again, and I look forward to working with Amy again. Her ring is the first thing I put on in the morning, and the last thing I take off at night. Thanks, Amy!"
-Stephanie S. Lloyd Harbor, NY
Diamond Engagement Ring Channel Setting
"Amy was easy to talk to, highly responsive and flexible - making this whole experience so fun and easy. She really knew her stuff, and turned things around with great speed. The best example would be the resizing of my ring, it was overnighted (per her direction) and back within the same week - just a couple short days of wearing a "placeholder"! This is very impressive. Amy was also incredibly patient and knowledgeable with my questions regarding the process. I would happily work with her again and would encourage you to do the same!"
- Cori B, Boston, MA
Round Brilliant Diamond Engagement Ring"Working with Amy on my engagement ring was a dream. She was personable, knowledgeable and brought a level of excitement to this project that I am so thankful for. She found the perfect diamond for my budget and worked with me to find an incredible. Every step of the way, Amy's communication and knowledge calmed my nerves. My fiancé was floored when she saw the ring and she still can't take her eyes off of it! I would recommend Amy in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a professional and personal experience." June, 2013

diamond halo engagement ring“Amy combines a great deal of knowledge of diamonds and jewelry with an inspired creativity which results in a beautiful and unique piece of art.

I highly recommend Amy and "The Perfect Setting".” February 18, 2013

"Amy was fantastic to work with from the start! I came into this project with a vague idea of what I was wanting, and came out with a ring that is far more three stone rustic diamond engagement ringbeautiful than I could have hoped. This whole process was truly "custom," and Amy demonstrated great patience with me (since I was scared to death and had never done this before) as we built this project together. She is an efficient project manager and had the ring in my hand 3 weeks earlier than I needed (now its burning a hole in my pocket). She is also, and more importantly, a great craftsman. As I said before, the ring is far more brilliant and perfectly suited to my girlfriend, than I ever could have gotten from a regular jeweler. Thanks for the great work! I will be in contact with you again soon!"

I had a pretty good idea of exactly what I Claddagh Celtic Knot Diamond Ringwanted in this ring and not only did she deliver that but also helped with ideas to make it even better than I had imagined. She was there and stayed in contact with updates and asking questions to make sure the ring was being crafted perfectly to what I wanted.

More importantly though, my new fiancee is ecstatic with the ring!!! Thank you so much Amy!"

-Joel Feldman, NYC
 
Gold and diamond modern engagement ring"Amy designed an amazing engagement ring for my fiance and I-- truly a "perfect setting." We met with her locally, at our convenience. She listened to exactly what I wanted and had already spoke to my fiance about what he wanted, his budget, etc. She gave us honest and insightful input and showed us pictures and samples of things that were in-line with our criteria. I wanted a ring that looks good on my hand, can stand up to the abuse of everyday wear and an active lifestyle, has a "nautical" look, and is original. In the end, I am thrilled with my ring. The design is perfect and the diamonds are beautiful and even more incredible then I expected! I am looking forward to working with Amy to create our wedding bands."​
- Katie A., Lloyd Harbor, NY 
Custom gold cross with turquoise"This was an amazing collaboration between Amy, my partner, and myself. We started off with a general concept of what the project should be and I watched as Amy turned it into specifics, negotiating the differences in everyone's approach. She delivered on her vision, from sketches to wax models, to base cast (I am not very good at jewelry terms). But my partner loves it and it delivers a compromise at what he and I wanted. Everyone's happy..."

- Nancy R, Scottsdale, AZ
 
"Naturally, I was reluctant to undertake a project where I wouldn't see the end result until AFTER some money changed hands, but The Perfect Setting quickly settled my uneasiness. Amy was very engaging, kept in constant contact, and was great with sending me pictures/updates. I couldn't be happier with the end product and will definitely use them again the next time I'm in the market for something special. I would definitely recommend The Perfect Setting if you're in the market for unique, personalized pieces, and want great customer service, to boot!"

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Amy when buying an engagement ring for me to-be fiance. She took the time before our meeting to really get a firm understanding of what I was looking for. We met at my convenience and Amy brought the highest quality of merchandise with her, while being cognoscente of my budget. She combined an incredible halo setting with the 'perfect' diamond and my fiance could not have been happier with the ring. Not only does she love it, the compliments that both of us have received from friends and complete strangers have truly been amazing... I would and will recommend Amy to anyone looking to purchase new jewelry or repurpose something old.”  ​From LinkedIn - Bryan hired you as a Jeweler & Designer in 2012 - Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

It is really the Perfect Setting for me!
- Dina B. Yardley, PA
 
​"Amy, I must tell you that I am beyond thrilled with my new "old" jewelry. Even though we discussed the design details, the pieces were so much more beautiful than I ever imagined. What a magnificent concept. With your expertise and creativity, you breathed new life into some old forgotten pieces. I have been wearing everything since Christmas. They were the perfect Christmas gifts from my husband and he loves them too. He is so happy to see some of the old jewelry that he gave me that was sitting in a box now revamped and being worn again. Everybody's happy!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
- Barbara W. Lloyd Harbor, NY
 
"I thought I had a very discerning and demanding eye, but Amy Certilman has an even more demanding eye for quality and design. I must tell you that the pendant looks absolutely beautiful!!!! I really think it was worth the time (Amy's and mine) and the effort (all Amy's) to achieve setting this stone and having it look so wonderful."
- Stephanie G.W. New York City
 
"Amy Certilman has genuine passion for jewelry. She has a great eye for how to reinvent old jewelry into fresh new designs. I love my new set of gold and diamond rings. The hammered gold and irregular shapes of the settings gave new life to the rings I was so tired of wearing. Now I love the way they look and truly enjoy wearing them everyday!" 
- Denise K. Huntington, NY
 
"Making a "clean sweep" through my husbands gifted jewelry when my 14 year marriage ended was truly a cathartic, uplifting process. The saying "out with the old and in with the new" applied to so many aspects of my new life. Transforming my beautiful jewelry into completely different, powerful and sexy statements was truly a gift of priceless value to me! I had no idea how, but I knew I wanted to return my diamond to my hands after my marriage ended. Amy had the perfect setting and it captured my diamond's sparkling beauty in an elegant, "statement" design. I always received compliments on my diamond ring before. Now, it is more than just flattering, it is empowering to again hear such unsolicited compliments during such a vulnerable time in my life! Thank you so much, Amy, for restoring more than just my ring! You restored my heart and spirit, too!"
- Carol L. Fairfield, CT
 
​"Handing over your diamond studs and telling Amy to make them fresh, modern and wearable for everyday was a HUGE leap of faith. And I am so glad I did! Amy knew exactly what I wanted and I could not be happier. She is a pleasure to work with, so creative, amazing at follow up, and incredibly reasonable. I absolutely love them. They are insanely beautiful. Can't wait to work with Amy again.

"I'm crazy about my new diamond ring, which rescued an un-used necklace from the bottom of my jewelry box.... I can't believe I let such a beautiful stone collect dust! The setting is so contemporary and stylish... I've been showing it off, and I feel like I got engaged all over again!"
- Nina M. Lloyd Harbor, NY
 
"I don't know who is happier, me or my wife. What a fantastic way to breath new life into an old jewelry collection. The value Amy provides by remodeling old jewelry far out strips what we could have seen in a sale. My wife now has a stunning new diamond ring she wears with pride and distinction... and we were able to do by it utilizing the latent value hidden in her jewelry box. " 
- Brian M. Lloyd Harbor, NY
 
"I love the ring...the sapphire is just beautiful -- a little lighter, more brilliant in color than I had before! Also, since the jeweler cleaned all of the stones the diamonds sparkle too. Thank you so much.

I love all my new necklaces and earring and can not wait to find more pieces for her to work on!
- Elyse L. Port Washington, NY
 
"After my divorce my diamond engagement ring and wedding band were just sitting in my jewelry box. I didn't want to sell them because a) sentimental value and b) thought my boys might want the stones one day for their 
 brides. Amy created the most beautiful piece of jewelry out of both rings: a pendant that can be clipped on to any necklace. I have worn it on a leather and making it look casual as well as on a diamond chain and pearl necklace for black tie events. Strangers have approached me wanting to know where I bought it! I love wearing it not only because its a stunning piece but because I can keep my ex whom I still care for close to my heart!"
Linda K., Bedford, NY
 
"Amy, I want to thank you for resetting my diamond studs.  You understood my vision and made it happen. The studs were a long-ago birthday gift from my parents, and now became a first year anniversary gift from my husband, so they are very special to me.  I wanted to incorporate them into something "new" and beautiful that only enhanced their meaning. -- they are even more beautiful than I could have imagined.  We appreciated that the cost of resetting them was significantly less than buying new earrings and was more appropriate for us at this point in time.  They feel new but still have a lot of history, so I love them even more.We are very happy and hope to work with you again on future projects....  I would highly recommend Amy for anyone who is looking to create a certain look from existing jewelry, or seeking her advice to come up with something new.  She is responsive, creative and sensitive to her clients' needs.  Thanks again! 
-Dena F. New York City
 
"As you know, I was reluctant to see my wife alter the ring I gave her early in our relationship. Perhaps the ring was more sentimental to me than to her, but more likely she just knew that she would never again enjoy it in the way she did when we were younger. Ultimately, of course, she won out and we're so pleased with the results. The piece has been transformed into something beautiful and current, a complete renaissance. She enjoys wearing it almost daily, which is far better than having a relic, stored but not worn. This is clearly a case in which the sum of the parts is greater than the whole! Thanks again."

"Designing a ring with Amy was a wonderful experience from start to finish. She has a terrific design sense, and helped me to choose a new setting for my mother's ring which I am delighted with. It gives me great joy to be able to wear it, rather than having pieces of jewelry in a drawer that I never wore. I highly recommend The Perfect Setting, and thank Amy so much for designing this beautiful ring for me, I just love it! This was such a fun project, and I enjoyed working with you so much. You clearly love what you are doing.​...”                                                                                                                                                                                 -Pat A.

“I really enjoyed getting to know Amy as she helped me to design a very special piece of jewelry. Amy helped me to narrow down which style would work best for me on an everyday basis and she helped me to create a necklace that is not only beautiful, but very "me"! In addition to her creative expertise, Amy was a pleasure to work with and made me feel like her focus was solely on me and that I could take as long as I needed to make the design choices I wanted. I appreciated her "customer first" mentality and know that she will always do whatever it takes to make sure that the client is 100% happy.

"I highly recommend Amy and The Perfect Setting. I asked Amy for advice regarding an amethyst ring I received after I had my twin daughters. One of the amethysts had fallen out. Amy's response was "send it to me and I'll take care of it." We consulted and she recommended fixing the prongs and replacing the two other amethysts which were different colors. The price was great and I told her to go ahead. To my delight, the ring came back with 3 beautiful matching stones and I've now receive many compliments on it. And then Amy had the fantastic idea to take the two old stones and turn them into necklaces for my girls. The necklaces are very sweet and the perfect "big girl" necklace for my 5 year olds.”                                                                                                          -  Julie G. , Stow, MA
 
"Amy's business is unique. From evaluating a box of jewelry left to me by by Grandmother to helping me design some stunning unique pieces for me to wear using some of the old stones. She is creative, easy to work with, very perceptive, very ethical, will save you money and both design and create fabulous one of a kind jewelry but will also sell your no longer worn jewelery to fund your gift to yourself. I have nothing but raves for this woman's work. Flexible and straightforward. No mysteries. I also learned a lot in the process and in the end have some beautiful pieces to wear. In addition she refurbished some jewelry that I gave as gifts to my sister in law and my nieces. I will continue business with her without hesitation.” January 6, 2012​  From LinkedIn - Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity​

"I picked up my engagement ring without my husband, he worked late so I did not get the chance to show him until the next morning....Good morning!!!! So .... Scott trained last night @ the gym after work and did not get home until well after 10:00 and I was asleep. He came into my home office this AM @ 6:30 a bit groggy, said good morning, gave me a kiss and turned to get his coffee .... I said "wait look at this" (he did not know I picked up the night before). Right away his eyes opened wide .... "WOW" he said... "How Beautiful". "Are you Happy"? So of course I am. Scott held it in his hand as well. He agreed the setting and band were nicer than any that we saw in the jewelry stores. So he is too is very pleased. The diamond is so well balanced with the size of the band. I remember it used to feel so to heavy in my old setting. Thanks soooooo much. Can't wait to see the engagement ring with the wedding band when it comes in. I am so glad I followed my instincts and connected with you!!! I am so looking forward to you doing Scott's wedding band. The fun will really start when we reset the other diamonds and work on the pearl earrings too!! Talk to you soon. Thanks again,"

"I went to Amy with a vague idea about reworking my engagement ring and a guard ring. She patiently went through myriad design options with me, and then delivered a gorgeous ring right on schedule. The whole process was a pleasure.​"

"I was so impressed and truly moved that that within so little time Amy had my engagement ring (an heirloom) re-sized and on my finger-- and all without having to get a new band, something that other professionals said could not be done. Amy truly understood the sentimental value of this piece and her kindness and expediency was just wonderful.You are a gem and I look forward to doing so much more business with you."​                                                                                                                                    - Gabrielle M., NYC
 
"Amy was a tremendous help in planning and implementing my custom diamond eternity band. She hand picked the diamond and was instrumental in the design and layout of the ring. She truly loves helping others find and/or design the ring of their dreams!"                                                                                                                    - Bridgette P.,  Syosset, NY
 
“I would never use anyone else. She is honest, smart and talented. Amy cares, meets your needs and has amazing insight. With gold and diamonds, there is no one better” January 28, 2012

"Amy's professionalism, creative solutions and hand holding gave me not only a piece of mind but a new love for old pieces that had been 'shelved'. Thanks to Amy, my jewelry has a future!"                                                                         - Tracy H., Laurel Hollow,  NY
“Amy was recommended to me and she didn't disappoint! My son was getting in engaged and he knew what he wanted but didn't give the greatest amount of time to have it done. Amy made it happen even after spending quite a bit of time explaining the details of diamonds and giving the education he needed to make a good decision.The ring was on budget, beautiful, and my future daughter-in-law was blown away. I would recommend Amy to everyone."
