Very few jewelers know as much about composition and jewelry design as Ray.


Working one on one with clients, Ray refashions old family heirlooms into beloved new jewels, restores precious antiques and designs custom pieces that bring your jewelry dreams to life.

New York Magazine voted Ray the best in New York:

As a young jeweler, Ray Griffiths was trained to make and repair intricate pieces of the British-peer variety. Thirty years later, he’s beyond expert at restoring vintage pieces and evaluating old stones for recutting. Nearly all work is done in-house, and he doesn’t automatically brush off small jobs. (Quotes start at $500.)

Currently on his workbench: a damaged 1850s diamond-bow brooch, part of a suite belonging to a European family; a gem-encrusted fifties charm bracelet; and a grandmother’s engagement ring, on which he’s updating the setting and adding stones for a young fiancée.

“It was $2,500 for the refurbish, and I gave her a ring worth around $15,000,” Griffiths says.”
