During the recent jewelry shows in Las Vegas, the annual JCK Jewelers’ Choice Awards were revealed. Danhov once again received recognition as a Finalist in the bridal category for one of its most popular engagement ring styles.
Danhov Unito handcrafted engagement ring featuring diamond halo and double diamond shank. Shown here in 18k white and rose gold.
This handcrafted engagement ring from the Unito collection has been well-received as a two-tone option for retailers to showcase. The inner shank without diamonds is a subtle way to add a soft and romantic touch of rose gold.
Danhov is happy to partner with Tivol in Kansas City and Paparazzi Proposals to offer a unique gift with the purchase of a Danhov engagement ring.

We’re thrilled to be featured in a “Pretty in Pink” story in the March/April issue of Bridal Guide magazine, on newsstands now.
Soft and romantic, a rose gold engagement ring is feminine and unique for the bride who wants to stand apart. An elegant Classico engagement ring with diamond shank is shown in 18k rose gold as a perfect in pink option.

Jennifer Gandia from Greenwich Jewelers in New York City, a leading fine jewelry retailer, offers some of the best advice for one of the most-asked questions from brides-to-be regarding the proper care of their new engagement ring:
At Greenwich Jewelers, we advise women to remove their engagement ring before showering. Hard water, soaps, lotions, and other products can dull the sparkle of your gems.
It’s important for women to find a routine that works for them. For example, place a small ring box in your bathroom where you store the ring during your shower, or have a consistent place you store it every night and wait until after you’ve showered and applied lotion every morning to put the ring back on your finger.
In addition, we tell our customers to store their ring safely while exercising. Lifting weights or putting pressure on the ring can wear it down over time.
To clean your designer engagement ring we recommend purchasing jewelry cleaner that is made specifically for the diamonds and gems in your ring. Certain porous gemstones, such as emeralds or pearls, need a specific type of jewelry cleaner. Your engagement ring is a valuable, lifelong investment, you should treat it as one.
It’s important to get your ring checked on an annual basis. Greenwich Jewelers, as most fine jewelry stores do, offers yearly servicing to check and tighten all diamonds and gemstones in the setting, and clean, polish and re-plate the ring as needed.
A final step in the care of your diamond engagement ring is to purchase insurance. We remind our customers that they want to insure the replacement of her engagement ring in case of loss or damage.
Danhov has always been known for its unique designs and quality craftsmanship. During the past several years the brand also has created a name for itself as an award-winning jewelry designer in the bridal category. At the recent JCK tradeshow, we added another accolade.
Platinum Guild International annually hosts the Platinum Innovation Awards, challenging JCK show exhibitors to enter their most innovative platinum bridal and fashion designs.
This year, Danhov was recognized by PGI-USA for its use of precious platinum in creating a beautiful engagement ring in the category of entry level bridal – meaning the rings had to have a price point of $3500 or less.
Style ZE109, the Danhov Eleganza handcrafted, double-shank braided engagement ring, was selected by a panelist of judges comprised of bridal and fine jewelry editors and retailers as a winner. We love this engagement ring and are thrilled they did too!
We’re obviously proud of the bridal and fine jewelry created in our California office, and of course we’d love everyone to choose a Danhov engagement ring, wedding band or piece of fine jewelry.
There are a few, or eight, good reasons to keep in mind when shopping for your big jewelry purchase:
1. HANDMADE IN THE USA: Danhov has been making handmade and hand-assembled bridal and fine jewelry in the USA for more than 30 years. This ensures quality and strength for jewelry that will last a lifetime.
2. SUPERIOR DIAMOND STANDARDS: All diamonds used in Danhov jewelry are true VS1 and F/G color.
3. ETHICAL SOURCING: The precious metals and diamonds used in Danhov products are all sourced from reputable wholesalers who certify they are from conflict-free areas.
4. QUICK TURNAROUND: Danhov provides a 2-3 week turn-around time for our individually created pieces.
5. AWARD-WINNING DESIGNS: Danhov is an award-winning designer; accumulating several accolades for best engagement ring design.
6. LIFETIME MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY: All Danhov jewelry is covered by a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty that will cover any manufacturing defects. Danhov’s warranty automatically terminates if any repairs or modifications, beyond setting the center stone, are made by anyone other than Danhov.
7. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE: Danhov provides a wide range of price points; our rings are individually made so they are easy to customize and can be made for any size, shape or type of center stone – perfect for an engagement, special anniversary, or gift for any occasion.
8. ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTION: Danhov bridal and fine jewelry is eco-friendly; harsh chemicals and large machinery used by many other jewelry companies are not used to create our handcrafted or hand-assembled pieces.
Engagement 101 magazine has just printed its 2015 issue, and everyone at Danhov is excited to see that we were included in several editorial pieces. Thanks, Engagement 101!
The magazine did a Q&A with Jack Hovsepian, owner & designer at Danhov, to celebrate his 30 years in the bridal jewelry industry.
In editorial featuring different lifestyles, Danhov rings from Solo Filo and Classico collections were selected as ideal rings for the Romantic Girl (SE100-YG), City Girl (CL123-YG) and Practical Girl (CM116-TT).
Danhov Solo Filo (SE100-YG) in 18k yellow gold for the romantic girl.
Danhov Classico (CL123-YG) solitaire engagement ring in 18k yellow gold for the city girl.
Danhov Classico (CM116-TT) stacked band in 18k white and yellow gold for the practical girl.
In editorial about bringing color into bridal and engagement rings, rings from our Pop of Color (LE110-PS) and Solo Filo (SE100-YG) collections were highlighted.
Danhov Pop of Color (LE110-PS) in platinum with pink sapphire is featured for those who love pink.
Danhov Solo Filo (SE100-YG) in 18k yellow gold is featured in selection of yellow gold engagement rings.
The magazine also has editorial to help select the right ring for your finger shape. It was advised that if you have bigger knuckles you should have a ring that has a wider shank and bigger presence so it balances out and doesn’t accentuate the size of your finger and knuckle. A ring from our Couture collection (CE162) was highlighted as an option.
Danhov Couture (CE162) platinum engagement ring provides balance if your knuckles are large.

Danhov is excited to launch its’ first-ever lifestyle campaign following a couple’s romantic journey. While we believe the unique handmade designs and quality of our modern engagement rings, wedding bands and fine jewelry are capable of selling themselves, we also know that the idea of spending your life with someone is very romantic.
We wanted to add another layer to the Danhov story of unique designs, made in America, and quality to last a lifetime, by capturing lifestyle imagery that shared those feelings around falling in love and saying “I do.”
We were fortunate to work with amazing actors to help us with this romantic journey that we feel symbolizes the love story of a Danhov bride.

We hope you enjoy the story of new beginnings and happily-ever-after as told by Shiree and Mercer.
