    Our artisan cut diamonds, such as our famous “True Antique” cushions and French cuts withstand the test of time and prove that there is nothing new under the sun. The groundbreaking  Dynasty Cut™ combines proportions of an antique diamond with the sparkle that only modern faceting allows. Other companies may call Antique cushions differently, but all of these are different names for the same cut.

Save by buying our diamonds at the lowest price on the market directly from us and get your very own and unique Leon Megé mounting to showcase it.

    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.
