I have admired Olivia's work for years, so you can imagine that when my fiancee proposed next to our favorite lake in Yosemite, I was excited to see the little "Olivia Ewing Jewelry" box. The ring is perfect, and although it was much too large for me at the proposal, Olivia was able to resize it to fit, despite my worries of significantly sizing down. I love the rough cut Montana Sapphires and Olivia's use of natural elements in her ring designs. Given the nature of my work as a fire and forest ecologist and my fiancee's job as a wildland firefighter, I didn't want anything too flashy, so Olivia's work perfectly compliments the beauty we find in our daily work and balances the ruggedness of being in the woods all the time with rough cut gemstones. I also appreciate that every piece of jewelry Olivia makes is handcrafted, even if you order one of her standard designs. Handcrafted jewelry that is both beautiful, and more affordable is very hard to find, so I appreciate that each of Olivia's pieces is truly one of a kind!
