A Cherished Piece
Years ago, my mother gave me the gold from her wedding band, my great aunt’s and my grandmother’s. Galatea turned gold from three important women in my life into a beautiful pendant, which reminds me of the Three Graces. I will always cherish this piece and what it represents. These women are now a memory, but I can keep them close when wearing it….
Something Old, Something New
A few years ago, a man came to me wanting to have a special piece made for his bride to be. He brought me one of his Grandmother’s cherished earrings, and asked me to turn it into a beautiful bracelet his wife could enjoy for years to come.
I took the center stone from his Grandmother’s earring, and created a beautiful diamond bracelet to enhance the beauty of the center stone. It turned out to be a wonderful gift for his bride on her wedding day…
Jewelry Design and Fabrication
Beautiful custom-design jewelry is an expression of the wearer’s personality, lifestyle and taste. Creation of such jewelry requires close collaboration between you and your designer. Beyond that, three elements are essential to the creation of a pleasing and high-quality item of custom-designed jewelry: the Design, the Materials and the Craftsmanship.
The design must reflect your personal taste and lifestyle. Your designer must be able to interpret and enhance your ideas, yet remain true to your imaginative, personal design. Be wary of the “designer” who only dilutes your concept, either by insisting (incorrectly) that he or she “knows exactly what you need” or by working from a catalog of tired commercial designs.
Galatea prides herself on the experience, creativity, listening skills, attention to detail, and sense of style she brings into her design work with every customer, with the objective of bringing your wishes and ideas to life as unique, wearable works of art.
Proper selection of quality stones and materials is critical to the lasting beauty and value of your custom-designed jewelry. Galatea Designs will ensure that the precious metals, diamonds or other gemstones used in the piece created for you are of the highest quality and best value possible, while remaining within your budget.

Not all jewelry craftsmen are created equal; Galatea’s contacts and years of experience with the finest goldsmiths in the country will ensure that task is matched to talent, and that uncompromising craftsmen are enlisted to execute your design, resulting in a unique jewelry item of lasting beauty, quality and value.
