Oregon Bride Magazine Best Rings of 2012

Stunning Vintage Ring & A Love Lock Honeymoon To Paris!

Michelle & Geoff came to Malka Diamonds & Jewelry in downtown Portland looking for a vintage ring to house their beautiful loose diamond.  They had been to several local shops before Malka Diamonds and all had offered to custom create a replica vintage ring for them but no one had a true 1920s Art Deco ring that was similar to the one she fell in love with.  At Malka we do plenty of custom pieces but that is not what these two were looking for.  After several trips to vintage and antique shows as well as visits with vendors in our shop, we found the perfect ring.  Michelle had shown us a picture of her dream ring.  It was an Art Deco diamond ring with unique cut sapphires accompanying it.  It was stunning and she was willing to wait to find a similar one that she could call her own.  We called the two love birds in to our 3rd Ave shop to see a ring that we had just found which seemed perfect for them.  As Michelle said, "You found my glass slipper!"  The two were married in Oregon and honeymoon in Paris, France.  They joined the many newlyweds in the heartwarming custom of locking a love padlock on the Pont des Arts bridge and throwing the key into the Seine River.  Congratulations Michelle & Geoff!  Thanks for sharing your special moments with us!

Thomas & Chelsea, Adorable Couple Picks Engagement Ring Together!

Thomas-&-ChelseaWe met Thomas a few weeks back on a Saturday. David gave him the usual run down on diamonds and what to look for. We always like for our customers to know what they are buying before they make any decisions. David explained the 4Cs. The information he covered can be found on our website on the basic diamond page.Thomas looked at many diamonds and found a stunning stone in our downtown Portland jewelry store. He came back a couple of times over the week following and one diamond stuck out more than the rest. He picked it out and then went with what half of our grooms-to-be do. He chose to set the diamond temporarily in a 4-prong white gold solitaire ring. With the stone securely set and in a Malka Diamonds black box, Thomas asked Chelsea to marry him. The two came in together and picked out a stunning 18 karat white gold channel set diamond ring. It will be ready for them to pick up together in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, we sized the temporary ring and are looking forward to seeing this adorable couple again soon. Congratulations Thomas & Chelsea!
