"I can't recommend Stephanie enough! The personal experience she provided was amazing, she walked me through every step of the design process and we were able to create a truly unique ring. I highly preferred working with her instead of the big jewelry stores. I'm going to be going back to her to design the wedding bands. My fiancé loved the ring and now wants to use Stephanie for custom bridal party gifts!"

I would like to take a few minutes to share with you how gratifying it was to work with Stephanie. I have not seen Stephanie in over (yikes) 35 years - and yet, by stalking her social media as we tend to do, I feel like I know her pretty well. I was especially in awe of her talents as a jewelry designer. Her pieces are cohesive, and flow with intricacies and flair that is straight up my alley. I abhor gaudy and overstated pieces. I find myself more drawn to the simplistic, classic styles that showcase lovely gems and have fluid lines. When I decided I wanted a designer to create my one-of-a-kind ring representing the three loves of my life, Stephanie was the obvious choice. She was incredibly easy to share my vision with, and had immense patience and foresight. She “got” my vision, and within a relatively very short amount of time, managed to sketch, mold and fabricate my gorgeous white gold ring with three bezel diamonds in gradual sizes - each to represent one of my three sons. It was an exciting process from beginning to end, and I proudly wear a ring that will remain in my family for years to come. It isn’t often that I splurge on myself, but I think sometimes we should treat ourselves to something special. I urge you to contact Stephanie to collaborate on perfecting your one-of-a-kind something special that will make you not only feel great, but will garner compliments along the way!
Dear Stephanie, thank you so much for taking the time to work with Bill to come up with the perfect design and creation of my engagement ring. “There aren’t enough words out there to express just how Beautiful and Perfect it is!” Every time I look down at my finger, I find myself amazed and memorized by its clarity and beauty.
Bill has expressed to me that working with you was such a pleasure, you put him at ease. He knew right off the bat, he was going to get the best of the best, one-of-a-kind ring just for me. All I can say is my ring is all that and more!!!
We will be in touch, for you to design our wedding bands.”
Dear Stephanie, I cannot thank you enough for your hard work and expertise in designing Barbara's engagement ring. Your advice on the choice of the diamond and setting was dead on and your knowledge plus experience resulted in a ring that took both Barbara and my breath away when we first saw it. When I gave Barbara the ring and proposed she was speechless. The ring you designed made a beautiful and special moment truly perfect. We cannot thank you enough!! Bill T
Stephanie did an incredible job working with my fiancé to design my one of a kind, beautiful engagement ring. I have always wanted a ring that was unique, yet classic, and Stephanie was able to create a perfect combination of just that for me. The thin gold band is delicate and simple, and peaks with not one, but two stunning diamonds. The diamonds are pear shaped, which once belonged to my grandmother, and round, which was my mothers, adding a sentimental layer to this spectacular ring. As if that glitter and sparkle wasn’t enough, an elegant bridge of diamonds settles beneath the diamonds, adding to the intricate design of this meaningful ring. Stephanie was open minded when creating this ring, and her expertise and experience was unmatched. My ring is often described as understated elegance, it takes my breath away daily, and has the same effect on anyone who sees it. We are so grateful for Stephanie and her beautiful work! ~Lindsay S
I've known Stephanie Occhipinti Targett for over 20 years! Way back when she designed and made my engagement ring, which I still love! So when Stephanie started her jewelry line I knew I had to buy some, ok a lot! I love it all! Great quality and I love the designs. They’re unique and different. Here are pictures of some of the jewelry I have gotten from Stephanie. I would highly recommend buying any pieces from her! Thanks Stephanie, Trish~D
This high quality creation is a genius incorporation of Citron & Tourmaline semi precious stones surrounded by sparkling genuine diamonds that burst the light into dazzling colors. This masterpiece is engulfed in polished 14K gold and screams of talent by the artist. I purchased this ring as a 40th Anniversary gift for my wife this year. Cindy is over the moon with it's beauty and comfort.... thank you Stephanie!
“AM I LUCKY OR WHAT?!?! It’s the best having a jeweler designer in the family of Stephanie’s caliber... I have Acquired many of Stephanie‘s unique pieces of jewelry. I always wear them with great pride. (and I wear them a lot). I know they are made with the greatest attention to detail in design, quality, creativity, and love.
THANK YOU STEPHANIE! Brenda-K
Stephanie, you are such an incredibly talented jewelry designer! I just love the pieces you made for my girls when they were flower girls. I appreciate the beautiful collection you designed for my trip to Cabo too. Many thanks again! Jennifer-T
Stephanie designed the most beautiful wedding bands for me and my husband! We asked for bands with kayaks and skis in the design and she did such a tasteful elegant design! Wow! Our friends are so impressed too♡ Jane-L
I was lucky to meet Stephanie shortly before I decided to ask my dream come true to marry me. Since I know little about jewelry and no one in the business I asked Stephanie for advice. I had an idea for two blue sapphires on each side of a diamond; blue being our favorite color. She not only found exactly what I wanted, she also personally picked out the stones! She performed a great service for us. - Wendell B
I will never forget the night I got my beautiful engagement ring! When Wendell proposed to me, he got down on one knee and put this ring on my finger and it has never been off since. It is the most special, beautiful ring, and I can’t tell you how many people have come up to me and said, where did you get that ring? The quality of the stones is absolutely sensational!! Stephanie managed to design a ring that is not only gorgeous, but also unique, putting the blue sapphires, one on each side, since blue is our favorite color. She helped me pick my wedding band which goes perfectly with the engagement ring. She is a true artist and only uses the very best stones. She made the most special moments our life even more special. - Michelle W
There were many hurdles to overcome while planning a wedding during a pandemic. However, none of them included the design process and delivery of my engagement ring and wedding band, Stephanie made sure of that! The design process was so easy and fun. I knew immediately that we were in good hands, working with talent and experience. Stephanie made sure I was involved enough in the design process to understand my preferences, while allowing the final product to be a surprise! I truly couldn’t have been more blown away when I opened the beautiful box that Stephanie selected and saw the rings for the first time. It really was beyond any expectations; they are truly the most beautiful rings I have ever seen. Stephanie worked tirelessly, under difficult pandemic shut down conditions, to execute the design, to select the diamond, and to deliver the rings to us quickly, it was so impressive. Not only were we so pleased with the design process and final product, but the personal touches along the way really was the icing on the cake. Stephanie included original drawings of the ring which we now have framed in our bedroom. I will continue to recommend Stephanie Occhipinti Design any chance I can. Stephanie is a beautiful person who brings incredible talent and experience to personalized jewelry design. Allison T
Writing this reminds me of how wonderful you were throughout this process. You made it fun and Allison and I found a dear friend along the way.
As with many couples, COVID-19 canceled our plans for a beautiful engagement and a lovely wedding ceremony. Then there was the concern of getting that special engagement ring in the middle of a pandemic. That’s when I turned to Stephanie Occhipinti Design, and the result was simply spectacular.
Like most guys, I knew nothing about jewelry. The idea of finding the perfect ring seemed daunting, and even more scary, designing one from scratch. But Stephanie helped me understand what to look for, and most importantly, incorporating the personal and unique aspects of my bride to-be into the design. From there, Stephanie provided the most elegant and professional sketches to choose from. Then she worked with the top jewelers in Manhattan to select a flawless diamond to go with the beautiful customized design setting – all this under a tight schedule and during a shutdown!!
My wife and I cannot thank Stephanie Occhipinti Design enough. The artistry, professionalism, and attention to details are befitting of our hopes and dreams for a happily ever after.
p.s. – we got married in a small room in front of a judge, and the perfect engagement ring on my wife’s hand from Stephanie Occhipinti Design more than made up for any fancy wedding ceremony!
p.s.s. – the design drawings are so beautiful that we made into artwork that now hangs in our new home.

We can’t thank you enough for the incredibly thoughtful and masterful job you did in creating a contemporary version of my family crest for our daughter Emma’s 21st birthday. You studied the images of the crest from the last several hundred years in the form of rings, paintings and ceramic works, and crafted them into a beautiful, bright new version. Since the crest came from my Dad’s side of the family, you had the great idea to take a little diamond out of one my Mom’s old charms and place it in the roots of the pine tree as it stands in the Swiss alps, firmly intertwining the Megroz and Magnusson clans for the future.
You were also so thorough as to ask for pictures of Emma so you could size it appropriately for her. (She’s just barely five feet!)
The necklace is stunning. It’s perfect, and honors our history with such care and fidelity. We know Emma will wear it proudly for the rest of her life. Thank you!
Wishing you the very best.
With warm regards ~

Stephanie's jewelry is beautiful!!! I saw her designs at a craft fair and couldn't stop thinking about them. I ended up buying some of her jewelry online! When I needed to reach out about something, she replied immediately and was wonderfully helpful and attentive. Stephanie clearly cares a great deal about the quality of her product, and it shows! Love this jewelry - I highly recommend!!
Stephanie is one of the most talented designers I have ever worked with. Not only is she super creative but a joy to work with. Keep up the great work Stephanie!
