Hi there,

Welcome to the new blog, apologies for taking so long between posts.  We have been working on something very special at Ray Griffiths HQ and I am thrilled to be able to finally share our new website with you.  We are really proud of it,  there are still some fun new things to come on it so stay tuned and sign up for our updates so you can keep up with new designs and other bits and pieces.

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer, the weather in New york has been a little bit of everything, including a couple of brutally hot weeks but now it seems to have settled and its fantastic.  I have been on the road, as usual.  As busy as it is I really do love meeting everyone and seeing so many beautiful places.

I started the year off with a much needed break with one of my closest friends, in San Miguel de Allende at the gorgeous home of Wayne Smith and his partner Denny, if you are in Houston you must check out Wayne’s store www.waynesmithjewels.com

From there it has been non stop traveling, so far this year I have been to Australia,Menlo Park, San Mateo, Houston, Las Vegas, San Franciso, Carmel and Manchester by the Sea!!!

Last month I went to Carmel in California for the 10th Anniversary of Cayen Collections.  The vivacious owner of the store Soraya has been a very good friend of mine for many years and she hosted a gorgeous dinner in the store.

This wouldn’t be a jewelry blog without a little bling, I am loving this champagne diamond shield ring, a little preview of my fall/holiday collection.
