|The biggest ring I've EVER worn from the Gelato Collection|
"It's all about the 'wow' here," says jewelry designer and owner Ceasar Azzam of Ceasar's Designs. His store on Walnut Street in Shadyside is a welcoming, boutique-like emporium of sparkling treasures. There, you are greeted by Ceasar himself who offers his sound and honest opinion for a very personalized and unique experience. As much as you would think a place like this is a hot-spot for newly engaged couples, Ceasar says he likes to focus more on those who treat themselves. "Most jewelry stores depend on engagement rings as their most important category of business where as I depend on self purchases -women buying for themselves. And that's reflected in everything I make, so I'm not going after the man buying her jewelry, it's more about treating yourself. Whether they have a significant other or not - that's not the point. I focus on the right hand if it's a ring - so I'd say the right hand is yours, do whatever you want with it!"
Ceasar is also known for his signature butter ring- which is a very special design made for comfort and wearability. The butter ring is used as a base for many of the rings, giving them a signature "Ceasar style." Recently Ceasar won honorable mention in the evening wear category in the 2013 AGTA Spectrum Awards for a breathtaking variation of the butter ring. Here he tells us a little more about what he does and more details on his beautiful creations!
