Valentine's Day is upon us, meaning someone's going to have best year ever in the form of a shiny engagement ring. To help aisle-bound duos seal the deal with a unique diamond stunner, LA-based fine jeweler Cindy Boudov is setting up shop in the Arts District for a one-day residency at Alchemy Works tomorrow.
Taking place at the cool shop's back garden, the luxury gemologist will work one-on-one with couples to customize their own promise, engagement, and wedding rings in her signature raw and refined aesthetic. On top of picking out your own one-of-a-kind diamond from Boudov's Slices, Rustics, Rose Cut collections, you'll be able to personalize your own setting and precious metal (from yellow, rose, and white gold in 14k or 18k).
Custom engraving is included, and pricing ranges from $1200 to $6500; plus, your personalized gem is guaranteed to arrive by V-Day.
Into it? Appointments are available at 10am to 2pm; book your sesh by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (323) 487-1497.
