Hi Irish,

You noticed

(rewind to fall of 2006) I told Irish that we would have a couple pear shape designs in early 07

Better late than never

We are still working on a split shank design... hopefully soon.

Ohhhh so pretty!
I have been looking @ Pear designs, and Princess. I like the pear because it is a little different, of course I wouldn't get one that big.. and I think the pear would be complicated to get a wedding band to fit with it, unless u had lots of $$ to make a custom band which I don't

....she likes to flash that baby, huh! lol

That design is stunning Brian! I too have wondered where the pear shaped designs were on your website. I think it has been a "pear revival" after seeing Katherine Heigl's ering. I just traded in my old setting on this new setting for my pear. I am pleased how beautiful it turned out. It gave it a whole new life and it is not sitting in my jewelry box anymore!

Brian I am looking forward to seeing the split shank design for a pear!! YUM!

Very beautiful classic design. I recently saw Katherine Heigl in "Knocked Up." Funny movie--and her acting was good, too.

I love pear shaped diamonds. I didn't like them very much when I first started looking at diamonds many years ago, but now I find them lovely. I don't like pears with really huge bowties, but a really well cut pear is a beauty. I'm really looking forward to seeing the KnoxDiamond pear shape designs to come.

I'm really starting to love Pears....I haven't always.

I absolutely love them set in halos.

Brian, yours turned out GORGEOUS!

Ronda, I love your new setting! That setting makes your Pear look like a 2 ct instead of 1 ct. Your Mom was so kind to buy you that for your b-day!

The ring that is pictures is a design that I came up with and manufactured for her last year. I have the original sketches and all the details of the ring like center and the amount of diamonds we used for the ring.

I would love to answer any question about her ring. She is a very nice girl in person.

Is the ring in the pictures a copy of Katherine Heigl's ring? I was just curious because I designed her ring and completed it for her a few years ago. Email me if you have any questions. My website is www.gotdiamonds.net

Her center is a 2.61ct F-VS1 Diamond that is as IDeal cut for a Pear shape as you can get.

He had seen some other ring I had done and asked me to some up with a sketch and I even met with her in my office to decide what shape of diamond she likes.

Mr. Ryan is not the one who designed it, I have proof of this since I have the original sketches and paperwork proving this. I am not sure where you got you information from but he did take full credit for everything relating to the ring which is ethically wrong and he knows it. He did not have the balls to sit and talk to me when it came down to it. He did not want Katherine to know that he did not design it because he would lose her as a customer, and that is the bottom line.

I'm no ring expert by any means, but I have been searching for a setting in which to place the stone for my engagement ring, which is actually a yellow sapphire in the shape of an oval. I've been searching for pictures to show my jeweler, so that he can re-create it for me, but for an oval stone.

Katherine's is the first one that has really grabbed me, because it is really elegant and beautiful, but somewhat simple at the same time. The ring on your site does look very similar, but it also looks different in a way I can definitely see, but can't fully articulate. In the design on your website, as well as in the pics up above, the micropave surrounding the stone looks more "micro" to me than does the pics of Katherine's ring. What I mean by that is that the diamonds look to be a tad bit smaller, with more of the platinum showing than in Katherine's. I tried to reconcile the difference, to see if it was just the way the pics were taken, but I don't think it is solely that. Don't get me wrong, the design on your site is beautiful, but what I'm looking for is the look that Katherine's gives off, displaying more diamond and less platinum.

Does any of that make sense?? Is it possible that if Ryan Ryan took the design from you (don't want to play sides... the reason for my earlier response was because while searching for details about Katherine's ring, his name was mentioned time and time again), that he altered it to give it the different effect that I am seeing? And will a skilled jeweler be able to point out the difference and re-create it on the basis of the pics above alone? Any help or advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

The ring on my site is Katherine's ring, I even have an appraisal made out to Josh Kelly her husband. The only thing Ryan did is add stones to the side of the shank which we had originally wanted to do but decided not to because of future bands to fit on each side of the original ring. I have other sketches that we sent her that shows pink diamonds on each band that goes with her ring. As for your oval, the diamonds in her ring are 1.3mm around the center and not micro pave like you think. I have a very skilled setter that is great with his hands. He is an artist when it comes to this kind of work. If you have any questions, please call my office.

Just to clarify, he brought the client?
And he was outsourcing the design to you?

If you have some supporting documentation, please do post it or email it to gilbert @ our domain.

Block out any information that the client wouldn't want on a public forum or if it's all confidential, just email it to me. Thanks.

Thanks so much for all the info. I might be contacting you at some point soon to get a price quote for my ring if you'd be interested. I appreciate your help.

He had asked me to sit with her since I was more knowledgeable in diamonds and he like the emerald diamond ring I made for one of his sisters friends. He and his partner Ken sat there listening while I was showing her many designs, shapes and sizes of diamonds. There is a lot of information Mr. Ryan does not her to find out and I do not blame him, I just want the truth to be known by these fans a that think he is the mastermind behind the design. As for posting any other info, I will not be doing that at this point since my attorney has told me not to. The truth will come out very soon.

Shimon,

Like the consumer mentioned above, I have no interest in taking sides either. But unless there is something bad that happened between you two that you did not mention, I'm at a loss why you have this negativity towards Ryan and Ryan. On their website they say that Katherine is wearing Ryan and Ryan jewels. They clearly brought the customer. They don't seem to be lying about this, are they?

Perhaps they are spending money on a PR person. Or maybe they know media people to get publicity. Or maybe they are just lucky enough because when asked, Katherine said she bought it from Ryan. I don't see anything written by them where they are taking undue credit or being dishonest. I checked their website prior to posting this.

If indeed you designed the ring (although we only have your word, I do believe you), I don't see why this wouldn't be a positive for both you and Ryan nor why you would want a lawyer in this instance. She has a gorgeous piece of Jewelry and if you had a hand in creating it, then bravo on a lovely piece that I assume you were paid for?

This publicity should create more business for Ryan, which no doubt he would reward his sources with more business for...

If Ryan simply outsourced some of the work to you, is it unfair to expect that he doesn't want to publicize where he sourced his items? I doubt he's sharing his PR costs with you?

Again, I don't know the details of the situation, but I'm wondering if maybe you aren't being a little too harsh on him?

Again, I don't know the details of the situation, but I'm wondering if maybe you aren't being a little too harsh on him?



The basic situation is that Ryan had taken credit for a sketch that I came up with and ran with it. When you mention outsourcing, if that was the case, then why did I not invoice him directly for the diamond and the ring?

The situation is that he came into my office and asked for my help. He noticed the other designs I had made and wanted me to come up with a design for Katherine. After a few months after completing the ring, I had asked Ryan what the status was as far as press and he said not to worry that I would be mentioned in any article regarding her ring and the diamond/design. When I asked about it a few months later I noticed that he was not responding to my emails or phones calls.

I would understand why you are hesitant to take my word and I think that you have some contact with Ryan, but I know the truth and if it came down to it, I can prove it and have witnesses that back up my story and will testify to the facts.

I was going to let this situation go but have decided that he should not get away with his unethical practices and the truth should come out.

One of my problems is he did not have the guts to come to me and discuss this problem, he ended up sending his partner Ken to my office which was a waste of time. If he was a man he would face me and we could of worked this out in a professional manner where everyone wins. I am dissapointed that I did not get to complete the Breast Cancer Heart Jewelry piece for Katherine's mother. I will post the sample piece that I had made for charity that she fell in love with.

I just checked the website out that you had listed and noticed that the ring I designed and completed was not featured so I am not really concerned about that site. I am concerned that Ryan will not even take the time to work this situation out before I will need to take it to the next level.

Actually I don't.

When you mention outsourcing, if that was the case, then why did I not invoice him directly for the diamond and the ring?


I was just trying to have you tell more of the story because it's hard to picture a Jeweler with a high profile actress sitting in his office, ready to buy, just give away an important sale to another Jeweler w/o getting a cut...which is another way of outsourcing the work.

Then to see the lucky Jeweler who was the recipient of such good luck be so upset with the person sending him the business that he publicly excoriates him...I imagined that it must have been about more than just getting some magazines and the actress say she bought the piece from the first Jeweler.

It's also sad to see things turn out like this. The bride looked so beautiful as did the Jewelry. I would have hoped for a big, positive win all around...

In any event, I hope you guys work out this sad situation.
