Save the Date: TODD REED Trunk Show
We have loved Todd Reed‘s work for many years, and it’s a dream come true to be able to share his remarkable collection with you. We believe in his innovative vision of reimagined luxury and his commitment to natural beauty. A one-of-a-kind, raw elegance, like nothing we’ve seen before.
Todd Reed exemplifies a steadfast commitment to his craft, with a vision that celebrates natural imperfections. Living in Boulder, Colorado, since 1996, Todd is constantly inspired by his rugged surroundings, and he honors the vast beauty of the natural environment in each and every one of his designs.
His work features unprocessed, unpolished, uncut diamonds, capturing a raw elegance that can only be created by nature and can never be reproduced. To better describe how he sees and measures the inherent beauty of a raw diamond, Todd added a “5th-C” to the “4-C’s” model, which grades a diamond’s carat weight, cut, color, and clarity: “Character”. With this, he challenges the world of diamond jewelry and its traditional beauty ideal. Rather than cherishing only the most polished, exquisite diamonds, Todd believes that it is also in the imperfections, and in the stone’s individual character, that beauty rests.
Every piece has a sustainable story. Todd honors every stone and metal used in his work. Nothing is wasted or treated carelessly. Through the use of recycled metals, recycled or sustainably sourced diamonds, and sustainable manufacturing processes that minimize negative environmental impacts, Todd demonstrates his connection to the earth as well as his craft. He has been committed to these practices since the inception of his studio in 1992.
Something we love about Todd Reed is how he honors the artisans that work in his studio. He describes it as: “One Language. A Collective Voice. The way Todd Reed jewelry is made is a key part of our story: artist and artisans in collaboration. A system of monograms (hallmarks) have been created for each master jeweler. Together with the Todd Reed signature hallmark, the stamps become a strong statement of provenance that acknowledges the relationship each maker has with the pieces they create.” Each piece from Todd Reed’s collection is a precious work of art; it is a conversation between materials and the design that brings them to life, stamped by the artist and carrying with it a story of collaboration and connection.
Please join us on the afternoon of Friday, September 29th, to explore Todd Reed’s entire collection of engagement rings, wedding bands, and exquisite one-of-a-kinds.
We hope to see you there.
