Love Affair Diamonds Goes Where No Jeweler Has Gone Before with their "Try Before You Buy" program revolutionizing the wedding band shopping experience.
When looking to mark her 10-year anniversary with the quintessential ring, LAD founder Erica Derout stumbled onto the world of old cut stones and was forever changed. With a newfound zeal for antique jewelry, Erica left a career in finance to pursue her newfound love of loose antique diamonds and jewelry design. With design partner Caysie van Bebber, Erica has created a one of a kind shopping experience with LAD, focusing on detached antiquity diamonds and jewelry motifs, primarily engagement rings.
"Much like with romantic love, you jump in with your whole heart and spirit, bestowing your undivided attention," shared founder Erica Derout. Her love affair with antique loose stones, bridging period pieces with contemporary elegance is how the Love Affair Diamonds name and business has come to life. LVD creates, designs and restores antique pieces with feminine flair and modern wear ability.
"We consider our portfolio and custom settings to be wearable works of art," expressed Erica.
Priced in the mid-range category and less expensive than most brick and mortar or mass-produced pieces, LAD is dedicated to fine craftsmanship, personal attention and creating a collaborative experience with their clients.
Beginning June 1, 2015, Love Affair Diamonds kicks off the LAD "Try Before You Buy" program. Founder Erica created this one of a kind program in collaboration with jewelry designer and artist Caysie van Bebber, allowing brides and grooms peace of mind when choosing a wedding ring that will last a lifetime. Never before has an opportunity like this existed. LAD's "TBYB" program is simple, convenient and straightforward. Interested parties pay a refundable deposit and like that, they are shipped a sample ring(s) for consideration. A pre-authorization of the replacement cost of the setting and a basic shipping charge is put on the individual's credit card. They return the ring(s) within three days from the receipt date and the replacement cost is refunded, less the shipping charge. The shipping charge is waived with a setting order. Individuals see the superiority and workmanship up close. Erica shared, "We will offer complete bridal collection designs, including bands. As soon as a new collection of designs are released, they will be added to the portfolio." The designs will be available in gold and platinum. When it comes to fine antique and vintage jewelry, Erica has fervent enthusiasm. Erica and design partner Caysie van Bebber said, "We are completely neurotic about the details."
Jewelry designer and artist Caysie van Bebber has an innate gift when it comes to design. She is a trained artist with a depth of knowledge of design and architecture. Caysie's uncle is an accomplished GIA certified jeweler and goldsmith. He recognized her artistic talent and invited her to assist him on a design. The piece was so remarkable, he urged Caysie to design another piece.
Her first creation was a ring, and this was no ordinary ring… Caysie took first place out of 500 seasoned professionals at the Knots Design Spectrum awards. Her philosophy is being true to antique inspired pieces, creating modern day wear ability. Caysie's fresh approach combines touches of the present with rare, timeless, heirloom pieces. Designer Caysie van Bebber revealed, "We are inspired by one of a kind vintage pieces, architecture, art, nature and most importantly in the personality of our clients." With every design, concept, initial sketch to the final production, we exceed our client's expectations.
