Dennis deJonghe is a national award-winning designer and craftsman with 42 years of experience. He has developed a unique style that is rooted in traditional goldsmithing techniques, while his son Evan has brought the latest technologies into the studio for new, innovative designs.
Their jewelry, which features fine quality gems set in precious metals, ranges from everyday gold earrings to one-of-a-kind diamond engagement rings. These individual works of art are handcrafted in their Saratoga Springs, New York, studio and showcased on their website.
When a jeweler has been creating custom designs for clients for 42 years, they master the entire process. Dennis and Evan start by listening to their clients' ideas, wants, and needs. They discuss gems and materials for the custom design. Then they develop sketches for review. Once the client is happy with the designs, they will create either a CAD design or a wax model. For some designs, they will go straight to metal, creating the design by hand.
