    Out of gallery Rough Diamonds The term rough diamonds refer to diamonds that are straight from the earth and completely untouched by a polishing wheel or tumbler. All of our rough diamonds are earth mined. ​ ​ ​ Hand-Cut Gemstones To keep the integrity of the rough gemstones, we only remove the brittle edges and keep true to the unique shape of the original rough gemstone. This way we can create a beautiful artistically cut gemstone that is still Cruelty-Free but very unique in shape. Moissanite The process is lengthy, complicated and expensive, which limits the output—it takes two to three months for the creation of a single gem. Charles & Colvard’s manufacturing process and years of expertise in creating the gemstone. ​ Handcrafted Jewelry Each piece is designed and hand sculpted by Dawn using the lost wax method. Working in wax allows Dawn to model the fine details of nature you see in her work.

  • About | DV Jewelry Designs

    About the Artist I'm Dawn, and I love what I do! I express myself & my personality through my love of sculpting and designing! We all start somewhere to end up where we are and where we want to be. I'm was born and raise in Rutherfordton, North Carolina. I currently live in Huntersville, NC. Not to far from Lake Norman. The area is beautiful and growing fast! I am very close to my family, as most all still live near by. This isn't a resume so I'm not going to start at the very beginning of how I got to where I am, but I have been through a lot of growth, business and the ups and downs that come with it. In 2011 I decided to really put my passion for designing and sculpting to work for me. What started out as a hobby, quickly became a business. I took my new designs of bracelets, rings & earrings on the road with me to show and sell at art festivals, art shows and Artisan markets. I developed a nice following and did custom designs for the people that followed my work. I then decided to branch out and put myself online, so I joined Etsy.com Raw Diamond Twig Engagement Ring I started out with one of a kind sterling silver bracelets, rings and necklaces. As time went on, I learned more techniques, learned about raw diamonds and gemstones. These unique raw materials fascinated me! ​ Twig Engagement Ring The raw rough uncut natural diamond twig engagement ring quickly became my most popular design and still is. (photo below) ​ As business started to grow, I needed extra hands on deck. I hired my daughter, Missy. Missy quickly became my right hand man when it came to working with customers, marketing and keeping everything running so I can do what I do best, design, sculpt and create new products! I love what I do! I love to create and talk with customers. Our customers share their proposals stories, their wedding & anniversary photos with us all the time! It's the best feeling in the world to make something that is a part of their special occasion. I am introducing new gemstones, moissanite diamond and hand crafted designs all the time! I hope you enjoy the designs I am so passionate about and I hope I can create something special for you! Thank you for stopping by to get a little glimpse into my little design world! -Dawn

    Customer Reviews Jordan on Mar 2, 2020 My fiance absolutely fell in love with this ring. Dawn and her team helped customize the most amazing ring and I cannot thank her enough for the priceless reaction that I experienced when I proposed. I will be ordering the wedding band to go along with this ring when the time comes. Dawn is truly a master at what she does. Thank you soo much for your help! Love the design of the ring i got and it couldnt look more how i imagined it!! Beautiful. Item had a bit of a delay shipping due to the shipment of diamonds to dawn, but it wasnt any trouble at all because she was so professional and answered my questions really quickly. Highly recommend this shop, it has been amazing! More Reviews... I custom ordered this amazing ring from Dawn about a month ago. Working with Missy and Dawn was such a pleasant experience. They were so kind and excited about my story with my soon to be wife! They brought additional Montana Sapphires in for me to choose from so I could pick the perfect one... the whole process was meaningful and easy. When I received the ring, I started crying because it was even more beautiful than the photos. I will be having Dawn make my wedding ring also. What a wonderful experience. THANK YOU DAWN AND MISSY!!! David on Nov 25, 2019 Christen on Sept. 5, 2019
