The ring is absolutely gorgeous!! I love the shape of the ring and the Greek key design! The diamond is obviously a very high quality gem. It sparkles like crazy and is very bright! Thank you very much!!

This is such a beautiful ring! It's exactly as pictured and I absolutely love it. It's everything I was looking for in a wedding ring/band. Cady is a lovely seller and I appreciate her service and her amazing shop!
vintage & handmade jewelry
The Rajah Press celebrates life's adventures through fine jewelry. It aims to be a carefully curated shop of hand-picked vintage, reimagined vintage, and newly designed fine jewelry.
Thanks for considering The Rajah Press's treasures to celebrate adventures in your life.
Vintage jewelry is sourced from Cady's never-ending-treasure-hunting that spans garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, and the internet.
The Rajah Press's handmade jewelry is 100% designed by Cady, often on tiny pieces of paper that end up in pockets, purses, and littering her living room, which doubles as a jewelry studio. 'The Rajah Press', a business name inherited from Cady's beloved late grandfather, inspired her to launch into the next phase: gold and diamonds. With help from a trusted local bench jeweler in San Francisco's Mission District, and a dependable metalsmith in Portland, Oregon, The Rajah Press now has the team and resources to move designs from dream stage to production in a matter of weeks.
Though The Rajah Press's team has grown, Cady still hand-picks all jewelry ingredients (especially stones!), dreams and refines each design, and oversees the entire production process. Each handcrafted piece has likely been touched by 3-4 creatives on the West Coast of the US, and comes to you filled with extra love (and a collective love of chocolate).

Jaime, and Aracely's involvement in developing handcrafted jewelry has made it feel not like I'm giving up a part of my process, but that my process now involves more love and care than one person could bring to jewelry production.

H A N D M A D E // fine jewelry
The Rajah Press press's handmade pieces are often one-of-a-kind, and we truly hope that you love the handmade piece you selected. Purchasing fine jewelry over the internet can feel intimidating. for this reason The Rajah Press offers a 5 day grace period for handmade fine jewelry. If The Rajah Press original you purchase is not 'the one' please contact us via Etsy and then return it, fully insured, with tracking, within 5 days from when you receive the item. A refund will be processed within 24 hours of receiving the item back from you. Returns are accepted for handmade items that break/become unwearable because of a manufacturing defect that we should have caught (i.e. a chain isn't strong enough for the stones are strung on it and so it breaks).
