"Kristen, I can tell you the ring was a grand slam home run. Barb was absolutely thrilled and kept repeating over and over 'This is so beautiful!'. You really nailed it. I was so impressed with your design approach where you took notes from her website to get ideas of her art style and what you thought might appeal to her, like the wave motion…….. and then translating that into a beautiful ring. Your workmanship is amazing. Barb always said when you commission a very talented artist, don’t interfere with their design! She is absolutely correct. Thanks again." -DD
“Picking out an engagement ring can be a daunting task for anyone. Working with Kristen was absolutely amazing. She made the entire process smooth and headache free. She offered her expert insight through the entire process yet allowed me to have creative input, creating an amazing partnership that resulted in my vision with her artistic skill and one of a kind touch. Getting emails and texts with pictures throughout the entire ring design and making process built up anticipation that only the final product could satisfy. Finally, taking my family diamonds and seamlessly incorporating them into the design was the perfect finish. My fiancé was overjoyed to hear that Kristen had designed her ring and loved seeing the process from start to finish. Kristen made me and my fiancé (especially my fiancé) extremely happy. At the end of the day, knowing that I and my fiancé have a one of a kind, never-to-be-duplicated-again, piece of art that tells a story makes our hearts warm.” -MB Photo Credit: J Terrell Photography
"Kristen Baird is single-handedly the greatest designer I've ever met. Thank you for being such an integral part of our lives, forever. I couldn't be happier with my ring! You are amazing!" -SA
"Thank you Kristen for creating this beautiful ring for Jamie and I. I am in awe. I am honored to have someone as talented as you make the symbol of our love. Thank you ❤" -ER
"My husband and I went to Kristen at the recommendation of a friend, and it was a fantastic experience! She was very responsive, and after looking at some pictures of rings I like and taking time to chat with me, she was able to pinpoint the individual elements we wanted in my engagement ring. She found a beautiful, unique sapphire to complement the rose gold I wanted for my band. She even came up with the idea to incorporate tulips into the design--the flowers I used for my bridal bouquet! I receive compliments on it all the time, and it makes me smile every time I look at it!" -WO
"Kristen is the real deal. Look no further for a custom jeweler, you have found her, and her name is Kristen Baird. We had a unique situation in that we had two rings, one an antique that was falling apart, and one designed by my fiancée that didn't quite come out as he had envisioned. We spent a lot of time researching jewelers in the Hilton head, Savannah, and Asheville area and landed on Kristen for a number of reasons:
- Her website is professional, easy to understand and easy to navigate.
- She was extremely prompt in her reply to our inquiry, I think answering us the very next day (we were still waiting to hear back from other jewelers when we made the decision to go with Kristen)
- She asked for pictures of our rings, but also said it was important to meet us and hear our story to get a sense of us and our lives together (others had told us to send everything to them, seemed very busy and uninterested in the individual customer).
The ring is stunning. She brought it out and I actually cried, it was such a transformation. She is a true artist, able to see someone's vision and use her craft to create a piece that evokes an emotional and visceral response in the viewer. She clearly knows design, and talked to us about how to do what she was hearing we wanted. She didn't push us to her aesthetic, or have an attitude about working on someone else's piece. She individualized us, which is so important in jewelry as it is such a personal item. We are so incredibly happy with our end result and the entire, stress free process! I sincerely hope we are able to work with her again. THANK YOU KRISTEN!! " -JM
