Ray Griffiths - Dolce

Ray Griffiths

Drawing inspiration from architecture and antiquity, Ray designs and builds his masterpieces—all created by hand—in his light filled atelier. Ray is not just a master designer and craftsman; he is also passionate about gemstones.

His perspective on the stones he selects is both unique and heartening. When searching for an ideal gem, he doesn't prioritize perfection. In Ray's view, a perfect stone has no character or, as he puts it, "no street cred." It's the imperfections —the inclusions, the color bands etc that give a gemstone value, "that make it real". Ray chooses stones not because they are flawless, but because they are individual.

Ray strives to enhance the natural beauty of the stone through the design of the jewel.
