HE DID GOOD

It's been a busy spring engagement season at Helene Lucille.  It's impossible not to feel the love spilling out of these happy couples; it's wonderfully contagious!  While every ring I create, and the accompanying love story is unique, there is a common thread: The desire the man has for a home run kinda ring - the one that entices a "Wow, it's perfect!"  In many ways men become my partners in crime while we secretly plot and discuss every detail of the perfect ring for their beloved.  In over two decades in the jewelry biz, I've been lucky enough to observe the desire of countless men who are head over heels in love.  They want the best quality they can afford; they want the perfect ring; they want the WOW factor.  As far as I'm concerned, it's my job to deliver the wow every single time.  I take this job so seriously that I often get what I like to call "the engagement ring hang-over"...that is, the exhaustion of waiting for the proposal, and the subsequent text, call or email saying "SHE LOVES IT!" That's my high, knowing I've helped deliver the sparkle and the WOW.  

So when you get that perfect ring, the one that takes your breath away, I'll say what I say to all my newly engaged ladies..."HE DID GOOD!"

Curating the perfect selection of diamonds for my clients is the first step in the process of creating the perfect ring.  The diamonds have to speak to me, and these two were screaming, "pick me!"

Vanessa was blown away by her surprise proposal while on a hike with Yaniv at sunset in NYC.  His buddies set up this picnic for them to stumble upon, talk about romantic! He was beaming, and she cried tears of joy!  I still get texts from her proclaiming her love for her ring, "most beautiful piece of jewelry I ever owned!"

Why I became a jewelry designer

Before I started Helene Lucille & Co. in 2008, I had spent much of my career as the head buyer, merchandiser and VP of a well known fine jewelry company.  While this job afforded me the luxury of traveling the globe in search of beautiful jewels, meeting top jewelry designers, and negotiating big deals, I felt there was something missing.    

I suddenly had the urge to create something.  I never really saw myself as particularly creative.  I had forgotten that when I was young, I would sit for hours sketching free-form shapes and patterns, and coloring them.  A little advice for anyone feeling stuck: take the time to connect with your creative side!  I did just that, and it changed everything for me.  I started seeing the world in color and shapes, gaining creative inspiration from the everyday beauty around me. Soon I had created my first jewelry collection of feminine, statement-making earrings. When a friend and colleague called saying she dreamt about a pair of MY earrings, and just had to have them, I was thrilled!  I finally found what was missing.  Creating a piece of jewelry that will be lovingly worn, or given as a gift to a loved one who will cherish it, truly connects the dots for me  

The scariest part of creating something is putting it out there in the world.  The absolute BEST part is when people connect with what you do!

Combining and contrasting colors in unexpected ways really excites me.  I love using different tones of the same hue, or just mixing seemingly random colors together.  It just needs to feel right, no rules!

Love + Diamonds

I feel truly lucky to work in a business, for over 25 years, that brings so much joy to people's lives.  I like to say, it's a HAPPY business.  Every beautiful piece of jewelry I create holds a special meaning, its very own love story.  

When I work with new clients, before we ever talk jewelry, the first thing I want to know is their unique story.  Building relationships and listening closely, gets my creative juices flowing.  I simply adore the process of creating fine jewelry, but most rewarding is knowing the recipient is overjoyed and IN LOVE with their new precious jewel.  Shopping for that special piece of jewelry can be overwhelming, especially in a sea of choices.  One of the best compliments I receive from my clients is how easy and enjoyable I make the entire process.  This is why I do what I do!  The HL pink box is my promise of quality, ethically sourced, fine jewelry created with ūüíó in the USA.

Love sparkles from the inside out, just like a diamond, both are rare and precious.  This really is the perfect marriage!
