My Husband and I purchased both my engagement and wedding ring from Derek Simpson and we cannot say enough good things about both the experiences and the quality of the jewelry. Forget being unique and one of a kind and beautiful, both pieces I wear daily are conventional starters and works of art.

Beautiful artist! I had my engagement and wedding band designed by Derek. He used some family stones to create the perfect piece - simple, elegant, and secure! The whole process was great and we loved working with Gene and Derek to create such special pieces of jewelry.

Grace Geller

I wear a piece of jewelry Derek made me every day. It not only makes me smile when i see it - other people look and smile too. I cannot say enough good things about him, his jewelry, his staff - its just a great place. His jewelry is hand made and unique. You will not see everyone else wearing the same piece of jewelry.

Lab Grown Diamonds

For the last three years, we've observed a significant increase in demand for a more sustainable and globally considerate choice when it comes to a diamond's origin. Clients who are consulting with us for a custom designed diamond engagement ring made at Derek Simpson Goldsmith have been turning to lab grown for a few reasons. A symbol of social and environmental awareness, with all the same characteristics of a natural diamond, as well as being more affordable, lab grown diamonds are a favorite among rising generations.
