"... a mixture of unique, minimal, and artisan"

This review is long overdue! My partner and I initially came to Dana and Rad while we were in the market for an engagement ring. I had found them online and loved their vintage and custom ring options so we set up an appointment via email and met them in person a few weeks later.

When we arrived for our appointment we were warmly greeted by them both and they had reserved the entire period to just meet with us. There were no other clients in the space which made the entire experience feel quite personable. We were invited in to sit and had a leisurely conversation about them, ourselves, and our ideas for rings. Being that neither of us were ring aficionados we appreciated how patient they were with answering all of our questions. They were completely relaxed with their approach which made us feel extremely at ease. We were able to try an array of rings as well as look over different stones. The quality was fantastic and we were impressed with the ethics behind their business.

In the end, we decided to go in a different direction with the e-ring but we were so impressed with their collection and customer care that we could not stop thinking about Dana and Rad's wedding band options. We decided that we would opt for matching Kent bands and reached back out to them months later. They remembered us, and their sales representative Kim, was super sweet to help us order custom bands. Kim was extremely communicative and answered every question we had. She (representing Dana and Rad) kept us in the loop every step of the way from fabrication to shipping. We felt really valued as clients, and could not be happier with the finished result.

The bands turned out gorgeous and the photos ALMOST do them justice. We knew we wanted something off the beaten path (pun intended) and Rad's unique take on the rose gold beaten band was a breath of fresh air. The Kent was a mixture of unique, minimal, and artisan - a hybrid of design that was hard to find elsewhere. Neither of us are flashy nor do we "love" jewelry, and the Kent fit that perfect sweet spot between simple yet elegant but NOT ostentatious. The rose gold blend is perfection with true hues of copper gently mixed with gold - the end result is a soft warm rose gold that makes me smile every time I look down. I ordered a 3mm, and my partner ordered the 5mm. There aren't many photos of the 3mm on the website, so I attached a few here for reference.

Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Dana and Rad. They are in short, fantastic!
