  • I just received my Aurora and Selene dream rings and I don’t even have words. They are stunning. STUNNING. They worked with me to find just the right stone and weren’t trying to sell me on anything. They were patient with each phone call and email and I am just beyond grateful. I will sing their praises all over Texas! Thank you thank you thank you!

  • Completely magnificent customer experience from start to finish. If you’re looking for beautiful jewelry with an ethical background, look no further. I honestly expected to pay much more for the beautiful engagement ring I purchased. Patty was extremely helpful, and if I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Ken and Dana. I have no complaints.

  • Excellent customer service, beautiful and unique designs, and conflict-free diamonds – I can’t imagine shopping anywhere else for a ring. Ken and Dana Design went out of their way to make a perfect engagement ring in time for our trip to Yosemite National Park, where I proposed to my fiance. Thank you!

  • Hello, I have never left a Yelp review, but decided to write my first for Patty, as well of course, for Ken and Dana Design. I wish I could give six stars! My girlfriend wanted a unique engagement ring with an emphasis on social responsibility and the environment. This was also my first foray into purchasing such a special and expensive piece of jewelry. After scouring the internet and local stores, I found Ken & Dana Design. The process was fantastic and Patty was absolutely incredible. I am from out-of-state, and we worked together to design the ring over phone conferences, videos, emails, etc. Patty was honest, helpful, and made the process fun! In the end, my girlfriend (now fiance) absolutely LOVES the ring. I succeeded, but could never have done it without Patty’s help. Thank you Patty! Cheers, Patrick.

  • Great experience. Overall I can’t complain at all. From start to finish I was given a great service from different employees. My fiancé is extremely pleased with my ring selection and Ken was extremely helpful and he made sure I didn’t pay more than what I wanted. He explained to me all the necessary details to be knowledgeable about diamond and made sure I picked the right diamond. Thank you all!

  • My husband and I had an amazing experience with Patty and Ken of Ken & Dana Design when we chose both my engagement ring and our wedding bands. We actually worked with them in March 2013 (engagement ring) and then again before our wedding several months later for our wedding bands. Even though it has been awhile, I am still talking about them and recommending them to friends, as I just did today, so I decided I owe it to them to finally write my review.

    We lived in Philadelphia at the time so we made an appointment and went to NYC to visit with Patty and Ken in their studio for the engagement ring and then again for our bands. Patty is so sweet and welcoming. She and Ken made us feel like old friends they had known for years. They worked with us to choose the perfect rings, and helped us choose the proper sizing. They even resized my engagement ring after I had worn it for a few months and decided it was too big. Visiting them in their studio was so much fun – it’s cozy and inviting and you can feel their creativity and passion for their work and for their clients while you’re there.

    We originally chose Ken & Dana Design because of their unique and nature-inspired designs, and because they are committed to environmental responsibility. Now I’m so happy we chose them because in addition to these qualities, they also truly care about their clients and their work. They are awesome and incredibly talented, and I would recommend them to anyone – and I often do. Thank you so much Patty and Ken!

  • Ken & Dana Designs is an outstanding company. I worked with other jewelers who just did not seem to be as interested in our particular story, and were not as interested in trying to find the perfect ring for her. I worked with Patty, who is just a lovely person and was so interested in our story and trying to find us the perfect ring. Most of our initial dealings were via email and she was still so receptive to sending me price quotes, honest advice, and picture of the diamonds/rings. Their website is user friendly and I love that they are so committing to making eco-friendly rings that look beautiful. The look on my finance’s face was priceless and the ring ended up being perfect. Thanks so much for all your help!!

  • Going into this experience of buying something so expensive online I was rather skeptical. I felt uneasy spending a large amount of money on something I had never seen (Even more so because i’m Canadian, and the exchange rate is out of this world!). However, I must say that I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience, and the people I dealt with. Honestly, it was very easy to send the money, and I felt comfortable knowing I would get a beautiful ring for it.

    After numerous conversations through E-Mail and phone, I finally chose a diamond for the setting. I wasn’t quite sure about the diamond, since it was a SI1. My expectations were tempered because of this. Clearly, the people at KDD do inspect, and choose only the ones they deem to be of quality. Even though mine was SI1 The inclusions don’t appear to affect the ring at all, and it sparkles amazingly! The value I received for this ring is unreal. My Fiance gets compliments on her Rose Gold Molly all of the time. We are so happy with it :)!

    I appreciate to no ends how easy Patty and her team made this experience. They run an amazing business, and kept me in the loop through everything. I will no doubt be buying my Fiance’s band from KDD, and i’m sure I’ll be a lifelong customer for anniversary presents :) Here’s to hoping she never reads this

  • I ordered one of the rings online and requested a very specific gem which I had not been able to locate. They worked with me to find the perfect Montana sapphire. On top of all that, they were able to get it to me at the faster end of their estimated completion time. The end product is amazing and jewellers have complemented it and wanted to know where I got it.

  • I first contacted Patty a couple years before we ended up actually purchasing a ring and stone from KDD. Despite setting appointments and changing them and canceling them, and going out of touch for long periods of time, Patty was very patient and nice and excited for us.

    We looked at several jewelers from Boston, Oregon, and Chicago and found ourselves comparing the pieces at each place with the ring we initially fell in love with at KDD. I was able to carry out the purchase online, painlessly, and Patty communicated with me along the way what the time-frame looked like.

    The stone we enDed up with was unbelievably perfect. We had seen lots of .9 ct and .7 ct, but really were wishing we could see one in the middle. Patty had a .82 ct waiting for us. It was meant to be.

    Can’t thank her enough for being patient and holding my hand through the process. I’d strongly recommend them.

  • Best of the best. Their jewelry is more than just a piece of work, it’s art. A piece of art that’ll make the person you’re giving it to, melt their heart, because that’s what it did when I proposed to my fiancé. You’ll definitely get more than what you’re paying for. Their staff is top notch too. Super helpful, and eager to fulfill your every request. Since I am an out of town customer, I was worried about buying out of state, but Patty reassured me everything is going to be ok and after reading other reviews, and especially since there’s nothing around me that has such a great selection I went for it. I also was on a short schedule and, Patty was able to create the ring and ship it to me really fast too (Thank you!). I definitely will be stopping in to thank them whenever I can get to New York in person, but till then, I hope this review will be good until I can.

  • Wonderful experience, incredibly helpful and one of the few places that has truly unique rings. Couldn’t recommend more.

  • What a wonderful experience it was to purchase an engagement ring from Ken! The customer service was unmatched. The ring arrived exactly as planned in a beautiful box and exactly as expected. My fiancée loves the ring and is constantly getting compliments. Particularly, everyone notes how unique the ring is and how it suits her style and personality. So happy to find such a talented team to make her forever ring. We will definitely purchase the wedding bands here as well. We plan on going to the store this time so we can meet everyone, but buying online / over the phone was a breeze.

  • For people like us, this is as good as it gets. From the task of making an appointment to the receipt of our package – the whole process was “relaxed”.

    The studio’s vibe was right up our alley, with vintage furniture, creative displays and a staff that made us feel right at home; it made me want to get my from somewhere that obviously cares so deeply about their craft.

    I was able to get prompt responses to my update inquiries and felt so good know my materials were recycled and conflict free – the biggest draw for me.

    Our ring is beautiful and cannot say enough good things – I felt very lucky our process was so phenomenal in every way.

  • I ordered a special custom ring with a fingerprint and engraving. Patty and Ken & Dana Design worked with me through email to verify the correct engraving and to confirm receipt of the fingerprint sample.

    Patty also followed up with me on tracking the shipping and payment and made the whole experience very easy and comforting.

    The ring arrived very nicely packaged with a nice box and on time. Overall I had a great experience!

  • I honestly cannot say how much I love this ring. working with Ken & Dana was so wonderful and pleasant. It came out so much better than I expected and it was so easy and smooth to work with .

  • Fantastic experience all around. This was literally the only easy part of our entire wedding process. For all my other vendors, I had to sift through anywhere from 5-25 options, but within 5 minutes at Ken & Dana, I found both my and my husband’s wedding rings.

    The staff is easy to work with and they have a lovely whiskey selection while you’re waiting ;). Though do remember it’s a small shop, so you have to make an appointment and the weekend options require a decent amount of planning ahead. Trust us though, it’s worth it! The free re-sizing was fantastic too!

  • This is a wonderful business! I am SO HAPPY to have found Ken & Dana. I fell in love with them as soon as i found them on Pinterest (then obsessively stalked their beautiful website/facebook) . They made everything SO easy for us. They were accommodating with appointments (they let us come in during their really big move to a new location!), they showed us our options for rings and with talking and explaining my what i do for work, my style and what i wanted they secretly helped my Husband customize the engagement ring. They are really sweet with emails and updates! We loved them so much that we bought the engagement ring and BOTH our wedding bands from them. We thought about buying the bands somewhere locally in Boston and not going to NYC again BUT no rings compared— Even for his band. He was all like “But I want something really nice too…” I am in LOVE with K&D’s unique designs, their store, PATTY!!, and the level of craftsmanship that continues to exceed our expectations.

  • I did a lot of searching before coming across Ken and Dana Design, and it was time well spent researching. Me and my now fiancé have very particular tastes and styles. Something that would not have been satisfied by going to any of the big box jewelry stores.

    From the very first call I made to Ken and Dana, I have had the absolute best experience one could ask for during this process. I spoke to a few different team members, but in the end it was Patty that ended up having to deal with my million-and-one questions.

    Only after all my questions had been answered, and the ring already having begun being handcrafted, did I realize that the person helping me, listening to me, and getting to know me and my soon to be fiancé, was the same person crafting the stunning heirloom ring I would soon receive.

    Of course, when the day finally came, all the hard work and stress was rewarded with my fiancé stating simply: “it’s perfect”.

    I cannot say enough about the team at Ken and Dana Design, from scrambling on a very busy day to show my sister the stone I would purchase during the 5 minutes she had off during lunch, to answering emails at 7 and 8 o’clock at night, they have been nothing but exceptional craftsmen and women, and utter professionals.

    Thank you so much for creating a truly unique experience, one that made such a memorable occasion even more special.
