ORIGINAL PAVÉ RING
Diamond Setting ... an ancient trade of an ancient race. Did you know ... or do you
remember ... when holes were made with hand-pumped drills? This was before the era of electric drills ... and when diamond setting was an art form. My first teacher ... an incredible craftsman and a gentleman and a gentle man, now deceased, told me: "A good diamond setter--if he really knows what he's doing--can make a tool out of anything ... including a nail. It was from this that was born my propensity of making my own tools when what I was looking for was not available. My teacher's name was Albert and he was one of the rare true friends I had in this industry. Milgraining ... in those old days ... was also done by hand. But then ... as now ... the credo was always the same ... both for Albert ... and today for me. "Quality," he used to say, "is the meticulous attention to detail." Today I am a Primus Inter Pares Setter ... specializing in European Pave ... Royal Pave ... and Micro Pave. I belong to an old school that sprang from pride in workmanship. I emmanate from an old tenet that insists upon excellence.

An Addendum ....
The era of the Internet is upon us. The radio and the television and even the regular landline phone have become old hat. The cellphone and the computer have replaced the spear and the arrow. And while the tools for the hand work and skill required for diamond setting have grown ... their growth has not been commensurate with rapid pace of the times. Diamond setting is one of the last stanchions of skill which has not yet been replaced--metaphorically speaking--by the answering machine ... the fax machine ... or the jet plane. Yet today communications is easier ... not limted by time or distance. And so ... if you can't call because you live over there and I live over here and our hours don't match ... email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
