We’ve been included in this week’s Shop Talk, May 22, 2012 article in the Westender. The article written by Kelsey Klassen celebrates the best of Spring in Vancouver.
In addition to featuring our custom designed jewlery they're highlighting a variety of other local independent retailers such as Orling & Wu, Goorin Bros. and John Fluevog. This spring they contacted our in house designer, Rosemary Bartram, at our Yaletown store to learn the secret of commissioning a custom designed engagement ring or wedding band in Vancouver. Here's an excerpt care of Vancouver's own Westender newspaper:
With wedding season nigh, look to locally designed and crafted jewelry for that extra special someone. Era Custom Design, a small studio located in Yaletown, specializes in modern and vintage engagement and wedding rings. Era offers custom fine jewelry design consultation with drawings, wax models, and comprehensive education alongside a curated collection of antique & estate items in a low key studio environment. Era Design collaborates with the client to create original engagement rings, wedding bands, earrings, pendants and more with only the highest quality materials. Rosemary Bartram, a local Vancouver designer with over 15 years experience, established Era Design in 2003 with the goal of providing excellence in design, quality, service and buyer education. Era Custom Design has an extensive line of wedding bands for both men and women; these styles include simple unadorned rings in varying widths, rings with hand engraved patterns, filigree rings, pavé set diamond rings, channel and gypsy set rings, and two-tone gold or platinum rings. Their selection changes with the seasons so check often.
