A quick Google search of the term ‘handmade’ results in this definition: “made by hand, not by machine, and typically therefore of superior quality.”
At Danhov we take great pride in offering diamond jewelry collections that are handmade, and some that are hand-assembled. And regardless of handmade or hand-assembled, all of our bridal and fine jewelry is made in the USA.
At some companies, the term handmade is additionally interpreted as hand-assembled or hand-altered, or even hand-touched. When we say a diamond ring is handmade, we are talking about the most literal sense of the word – it really is made by hand. From start to finish, the piece of jewelry is made by the skilled hands of one of our expert jewelers. And we are honest and up front that some of our collections are hand-assembled – meaning that parts of the jewelry are individually created with a wax mold and then assembled and finished by hand to create the perfect ring.
Mass-production is not used at Danhov, and no manufactured-by-machine rings (that are then polished by hand and called handmade) have the Danhov stamp.
Our handmade and hand-assembled rings are produced one ring at a time by skilled artisans at our California office. This individual, hands-on approach further exemplifies the precision, quality and strength for which Danhov is known.
