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!
