About

Every Piece of Jewelry has a Story

Every couple has a story…..

Every Engagement has a story…..

Every piece of custom jewelry has a story....

I started out just a normal starving college kid, making string friendship bracelets to buy my next meal. But once you enter the world of jewelry, there is no way out (and I like it that way!).

Before I knew it I was buying more beads. And more... One day, I was sold my first gemstones and I was hooked. I was then introduced to a diamond setter, “The Best” I was told. I began designing and creating pieces for my clients, and my diamond setter would make each piece come to life from my clients’ dreams.

When my husband was diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer, my jewelry business came to a screeching halt. I took care of him for the next few years until his death left me with 3 small children to feed. I decided I would start up the jewelry business again, but this time it was sink or swim.

I contacted my diamond setter and we began working hard together to help me make this work... and talking... It turned out that he was now single.

Out of the darkest time of my life a new rose sprung up. We were recently married and now, together, we have joined forces. Laurie Sarah Designs can help you make your jeweled dreams become a reality!

We’re sure you have a story. Shouldn’t your Engagement Ring or Custom Jewelry have a story too?

We now offer WHOLESALE. Interested? Email us for more information.

Frequently asked questions

WHO IS LAURIE SARAH, AND WHY SHOULD YOU BUY FROM MY HUSBAND AND I?

I (Laurie Sarah) began making jewelry to be able to afford my next college meal. Avo (my dear husband) began setting diamonds when he was only 12 years old! We are a small, family owned business founded on the lost art of “true handmade” custom jewelry. Avo and I met through our love of jewelry, after I lost my late husband to cancer. I was introduced to Avo as "The best diamond setter in Los Angeles." We now create each piece using our combined 60+ years of experience. We are passing a part of our love on to you. Since each piece is handcrafted to order, no two pieces are exactly alike and contain individual characteristics of a handmade work of art. This ensures that each Laurie Sarah piece is as unique as you are!

DO YOU HAVE A WARRANTY? WILL I BE TAKEN CARE OF AFTER THE SALE?

Absolutely! Check out our reviews - bottom line? We take care of each and every one of our clients for life. We call our warranty a "Lifetime Care Plan" because it's just that - care for life. Anytime anything happens, or if you have any questions, just contact us and we'll take care of you right away. For all the details of our Lifetime Care Plan, please visit our blog:
https://www.lauriesarahdesigns.com/category/lifetime-care-plan/

When you purchase your Laurie Sarah jewelry, you agree to the terms outlined in this blog. It is updated from time to time, but don't worry - it's almost always updated to be better for our wonderful clients!

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM JEWELRY?

Yes we do. In fact, Fine Custom Jewelry is our specialty. We create each of our pieces from scratch, beginning with gathering your ideas. We take your ideas, create a computer sketch and email it to you. You are involved every step of the way! You can request changes to the sketch until you are completely satisfied. We also send you videos of the gorgeous center gem you request for your approval. We then cast the piece, set the gems you have chosen, and then send you one more video for your final approval! Custom pieces are usually completed within 2-4 weeks. Need it rushed? Just ask. We retain the rights to use, copy, and market all custom designs.

CAN I MAKE PAYMENTS OR GET FINANCING?

Absolutely. We can help point you in the right direction if you need financing. We send most clients through something like Bill Pay through Paypal. We, ourselves offer what is like a Layaway Plan - you make interest free payments on your piece as we make it, and then send it to you once it's paid in full. The most common plan our customers choose is to put a down payment, which we use to begin the computer sketches. Subsequent payments allow us to hand pick the center stone for your beautiful jewelry, and then subsequent payments allow us to cast, set and finish your piece. How many payments can you make? We're very easy to work with - you tell us what you can do, and we'll work with you!

I HAVE SEEN OTHER JEWELERS THAT ARE CHEAPER. WHY?

Good question! We'd actually like to know the answer to that ourselves... Etsy was founded so that people who truly were handmade could compete against goods that are outsourced to other countries and produced by slave labor. However, we've been on Etsy for 8 years now, and sadly, we've seen Etsy lose more and more control over who is truly handmade, and who are clearly not. How can you as a consumer tell the difference? DON'T BE DECEIVED - if someone else is a lot cheaper, you are either getting an inferior product, or it isn't really handmade. For more information, please visit our blog:

HOW IS MY JEWELRY PACKAGED, IS THE PACKAGE INSURED? AND HOW IS IT SENT?

FOR ORDERS OVER $500.00: Your jewelry will come in our designer storage box which includes a luxurious jewelry box, free jewelry cleaner, cleaning brush, and invoice. Your package will be sent fully insured via FedEx Priority Overnight and will require a signature upon delivery.

FOR ORDERS UNDER $500.00: Your jewelry will come in a gift box. At checkout you can choose various speeds of US Post Office delivery. Because the US Post Office does not insure jewelry, if your package is lost, it will not be able to be recovered.

Rush orders are welcome. However, we are not responsible for any kind of damage, financial or other, incurred by not meeting your deadline. Please give us as much time as possible to make your jewelry in time.

WHAT ARE YOUR POLICIES FOR RETURNS & EXCHANGES?

We offer a 5 day money-back guarantee on all jewelry purchased as is. You will have 5 business days from the time you sign for your package to review your purchase and return it in its original condition with all its contents, or exchange it. This does not apply to jewelry that has been customized, or jewelry purchased using our Payment Plan. For these items, although they are not eligible for refund or exchange, if upon receipt you have any concerns, contact us. We'll do everything we can to make you happy! You MUST contact us for all items returned. We will provide you with a return shipping label that is fully insured. Items not returned with our label are NOT insured, and if lost, cannot be recovered.

DO YOU HAVE A PHYSICAL STORE WE CAN COME TO?

Yes we do! Our Custom Design Center is located in the beautiful and historic Downtown Los Angels. Come see how we make our jewelry! When you call to make your appointment, we will ask you what you want to design. Since we believe you should be involved in the creation of your jewelry, after we know what center stone you want, we will bring a small selection for you to choose from from our trusted dealers. If possible, we will also have on hand some settings for you to try on. Remember, custom jewelry is our specialty, so you won't see all our products in cases like in a retail store, but we'll have just what you need to envision your beautiful piece. We can't wait to make it come to life for you! Call toll free 855-LSRings!

DOES MY LAURIE SARAH JEWELRY COME WITH ANY CERTIFICATION, APPRAISAL, OR GUARANTEE OF VALUE AND AUTHENTICITY?

All our pieces are sent with an emailed PDF file called "Certificate of Authenticity." This piece of paper is our guarantee to you, as jewelers who have been in business for over 40 years, of what you purchased. Pictures of your jewelry, the value, and itemized details of what it is made of are clearly written. As far as appraisals go, you can have us purchase one for you from the Independent Appraiser we work with, or take your Certificate of Authenticity to a local Appraiser. Please be aware that we have had a few Appraisers undervalue our pieces because they forget to add value for your piece being a Custom Designer piece. Let us know if this happens and we'll help!
