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.
