    Couture designs and Artisan cut diamonds


    Whatever your vision or desire for perfection, renowned designer Leon Megé will accommodate you. Browse our selection of unique engagement rings, wedding bands, and bespoke jewelry, or request a quote for your own unique couture design.

    Each Leon Megé jewel is a one-of-a-kind flawless creation that starts with the award-winning designer’s unmatched passion for jewelry design. All are then bench-made using hand-forged platinum, 18k gold, and the finest gemstones and diamonds. Deeply rooted in the tradition of European craftsmanship, these creations are works of art that can be passed down through generations.

    In a world where crudely fabricated jewelry is labeled “hand-made”, then endlessly replicated using molds, Leon and his craftsmen—who still make jewelry exclusively with hand tools and centuries-old jewelry-making techniques—are becoming extinct.

    As the creator of some of the most exquisite jewelry in the world, Leon Megé jewelry also features the most exclusive diamonds and gemstones money could buy.

    Our own exclusive cuts include the True Antique™ line of cushion, Asscher and French cut diamonds. Our groundbreaking Dynasty Cut™ combines proportions of an antique diamond cut with sparkle that only modern faceting allows.

    Leon Megé’s Diamond Ambassador will be your personal shopping assistant in your quest for brilliance - whether the ring of your dream features a fiery round brilliant or an ice-cold emerald cut. There is no middleman between you and our artisan cutters faceting the stone. Every color, cut, clarity, and carat weight of diamonds is available for your consideration.


    Custom made engagement rings and jewelry


    An engagement is a defining moment in one’s life, representing eternal commitment and the couple's special love. Designer Leon Megé believes the engagement ring symbolizing that moment should be as lasting, unique and perfect. To achieve this, Leon works personally with each customer, discussing every detail of design until the customer gains the confidence that his or her ring will be executed precisely.

    Leon Megé custom engagement rings are different from typical halo, solitaire, three- and five- stone commercial designs. Instead, they represent Leon’s unique design philosophy, honed through his life-long pursuit of perfecting the delicate balance between the structural necessity of using metal to hold a stone, and the desire to conceal the metal in an attempt to make it invisible. He supervises each stage of production and personally destroys any piece that is not made according to his vision and standards.

    Every custom-made engagement ring—be it an elaborate micro pave halo ring, a classic three-stone ring or an understated solitaire—bears the hallmark of Leon Megé, his logo, serial number and necessary assay stamps. All also come with an Authenticity Certificate and Lifetime Warranty.

    From his travel around the globe, Leon Megé brings back stunning gemstones, hand selected to be offered for sale or set into unique couture designs. Bespoke jewelry designs featuring pink, blue or green diamonds, rare Kashmir sapphires or Pigeon-blood Burmese rubies, Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline, red emeralds or blue garnets and other collectible gemstones are always within our reach.
