WAG first caught sight of Greenwich-based jeweler Dunay Joaillier back in December.
At the time, its founder, gemologist Isabel Dunay, was hosting a pop-up store at The Katie Fong Boutique – one of our other local favorites – and we couldn’t help but marvel at her eclectic designs and undeniable talent.
But even more fascinating was Dunay’s mix of gemstones, precious metals and natural elements – such as wood and leather – that were used to create her handmade pieces. The collection offered a sea of finely crafted accessories with motifs of Mother Earth.
Dunay’s newest creations are different in style and approach, focusing on the bride-to-be.
The Round Brilliant Diamond with Halo and Twist Diamond Shank (1) is a dazzling 2-carat diamond, surrounded by more diamonds and placed in a handmade platinum setting with a twined diamond shank. It’s truly diamonds galore – and, hence, a girl’s best friend many times over.
For the wedding day, many brides search for their “something blue” – a tradition that is thought to attract long-lasting love and loyalty, stemming from an old English rhyme. Ladies, look no farther than the Sapphire and Trapezoid Engagement Ring (2). Seated between two trapezoid white diamonds in a handmade platinum setting, the deep, royal blue sapphire evokes a love everlasting.
And, no, brides, Dunay hasn’t forgotten about your guy. For husband and wife, Dunay offers a Diamond Solitaire Ring in Platinum with His and Her Bands (3). The set features a 1-carat round diamond and two wedding bands, all in an exquisite platinum setting.
To ensure the upmost satisfaction, Dunay offers a made-to-order service for all engagement rings. The service begins with a consultation, during which a budget, timeline and objective is established. For out-of-town clients, the service is offered via phone or email. Next, Dunay curates a selection of diamond options, using her network of diamond wholesalers. Once the stone is chosen, she collaborates with a team of jewelers to direct the design and creation process.
And then you have a divine token of love that is – truly – made to match the bride.
