Here's what our clients are saying about Porter Gulch: 

"I'm so happy to have worked with Porter Gulch. Brooke is very communicative and her design and craftsmanship is inspiring and beautiful. Trying on rings in-person at Brooke's San Francisco office was a magical and fun occasion. She is such a pro! My fiancé loves her engagement ring and the whole experience is a very special memory—highly recommend!"

-Max, Portland, Winter 2022

 

"This is my second time working with Brooke and her team at Porter Gulch. The engagement ring they designed for me was beyond perfect and I knew I wanted to work with them for my wedding band. They created a custom gold band to fit perfectly with my other ring. Brooke is so enjoyable to work with her and creativity and artistic eye are incredible. She makes the design process seamless and fun! I highly recommend Porter Gulch to anyone seeking unique, timeless, and beautiful jewelry!"

Cassie C., Los Angeles, Summer 2022

 

"Brooke helped me and my fiancé create a custom engagement ring and wedding band. She was patient with us and had great suggestions when I wasn't quite sure what I wanted, or just unfamiliar with the process/possibilities of design. I relied on her expertise to create a ring that worked well with my lifestyle and that fit exactly what my partner and I were looking for. We made a few adjustments to the design along the way and Brooke took it all in stride - she was so helpful with all of my questions and concerns! Once we were officially engaged, there was no hesitation to have her create my wedding band, as well. This experience was memorable and entirely positive. I would go back to Porter Gulch anytime I am looking for fine jewelry."

Jessica M., Sacramento, Summer 2022


"I wanted to commemorate a big career achievement, so I turned to Porter Gulch to help me create a custom ring. Brooke and Amy kept me in the loop with emails, photos, and a few videos of my stone before we discussed the custom design. They were very responsive to my questions, and they asked for my feedback to ensure that the ring would be exactly as I imagined. Brooke and Amy also provided 3D renderings showing me how the ring would look like and one last photo before shipping it to me. I am LOVING my ring, and I am so happy I trusted Porter Gulch with this milestone!"

-Jessica C., San Francisco, Summer 2022

 

"Porter Gulch and Brooke were great! She was very easy to work with. Very attentive, offered great advice, and was immediately responsive during the entire process. I feel like we got exactly the ring we wanted and it looks beautiful! I will be highly recommending Porter Gulch to anyone who asks."

-Tim, Irvine, Summer 2022

 

"I recently purchased an engagement ring from Porter Gulch and my experience working with Brooke and Amy compelled me to write this review. They made the process so simple and I couldn't be happier with my ring. I live in New York so everything was done virtually. They took the time to help me design my ring from scratch. I was extremely nervous in the beginning of the process making such an important purchase virtually was terrifying but they quickly put me at ease. They even were able to accommodate a last minute change to my ring design that put it over the top! I cannot recommend them enough!"

-John, New York, Winter 2022

 

"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Brooke creating my custom engagement ring! As someone who knew very little about jewelry she made the experience fun and extremely effortless. From our first meeting on Zoom to the countless email exchanges, she truly listened to the qualities I wanted and was able to create a ring even more beautiful than I could have imagined! She is professional, talented, and so kind and her communication was excellent. I can not speak more highly of Porter Gulch and will definitely be returning in the future!"

-Cassie, Los Angeles, Fall 2021

 

"We had a great experience working with Brooke! She met with us to understand exactly what we were looking for and was very thorough in making sure every single detail of the ring was perfect for us. She answered a million different questions we had as we were new to the process. We are absolutely thrilled with the end result."

-Pablo, San Francisco, CA, Summer 2021

 

"Brooke was so fantastic to work with! I came to Brooke with the goal of making an engagement ring with a few themes in mind - simple, elegant, and with secret design flourishes that only the wearer could see. She did an amazing job of translating these general wishes into tangible designs, and her iterative process was such a joy to go through. She has the unique qualities of listening loudly while infusing expertise, and created the perfect ring for me."

-Ed, Santa Cruz, CA Summer 2021

 

"Working with Brooke was a total joy, from beginning with my request for a custom design to receiving the beautiful ring itself! Attentive to the smallest detail, she was always warm and lovely to communicate with. I will buy again from Porter Gulch!"

-Jennifer, El Sobrante, CA, Summer 2021

 

"Brooke was a pleasure working with. She was a welcomed guide navigating the new waters that is ring shopping. She helped put at ease all questions I had related to rings & diamonds. The multiple stages of drawings really helped visualize each step of the design process. Highly recommend."

-Kim, San Jose, Summer 2021

 

"Brooke made sure to curate the perfect engagement ring for us and provided an amazing experience. She is a pleasure to work with and truly cares about her customers. She guided me through the entire process and provided very detailed insights and recommendations throughout. I never felt pressured in any way, and with her suggestions, actually came in well below budget too. I knew it was going to be great, but I was stunned when I actually received it in person. The ring is beautiful! 100% recommend to everyone and will definitely be back soon to get our wedding bands. Thank you, Brooke!"

-Kevin, Charlotte, NC, Spring 2021

 

"Working with Brooke was fantastic from the very beginning. She was professional, quick responding to emails, and passionate about her craft. Getting an engagement ring during a pandemic can present a ton of challenges - Brooke was so gracious and helpful during the entire process, I would recommend her and Porter Gulch to anyone and everyone who's looking for beautiful, unique and timeless pieces. I can't thank her enough, and neither can my fiancé; she loves her ring!" 

-Reid, Connecticut, Summer 2020

 

"Brooke is a super talented jewelry maker and created such a beautiful custom engagement ring for us. The original engagement ring we had was a vintage handmade ring that was passed down to us from our mom and it was a ring that we absolutely loved. Unfortunately it was falling apart, so we wanted to find a designer that could create a custom ring for us that used the diamond from the original ring and took inspiration from its design. Brooke guided us through her design process and was really patient with us the entire time. We had a lot of questions and went through many variations to make sure we landed on a design that we would be really happy with. In the end we couldn't be happier with the final result! We can't stop looking at the ring and loved how it turned out. For anyone thinking of creating a custom ring, I would highly recommend working with Brooke. She made a project that could have easily been really stressful into one that was really enjoyable and fun. I trust her fully and would no doubt work with her again in the future!"

-Joey, San Francisco, Spring 2020

 

"She was a joy to work with! Incredibly professional, accommodating, and welcoming. She gave fantastic guidance, and is a wonderfully talented jeweler/designer. Very thankful to have found her to help make this stage in life truly unforgettable."

-Kelton, San Francisco, Winter 2020

 

"Working with Brooke at Porter Gulch was amazing. I came to her with some engagement ring ideas and she made my dream a reality. She created exactly what I was looking for in the time frame I needed it completed in. The process was smooth and easy. My now fiancé (she said yes) is absolutely in love with the ring. She talks about it every day. You can't go wrong with Porter Gulch!"

-Bentley, Los Angeles, Winter 2020

 

"Brooke was an absolute delight to work with. She was quick to respond to my emails, easy to talk to about my needs, and the ring was absolutely beautiful! We know exactly who we’re going to when it comes time for wedding bands!"

-Zach, New York, Summer 2019

 

"Being in the wedding industry, I actually met Brooke a while back at the the Big Fake Wedding in SF. Her aesthetic and personality immediately stood out to me. So when the time came, she was our first stop. I must have driven her absolutely nuts with the amount of input and feedback I provided her. I shared dozens of pictures with her and she shared a few designs that were inspired by the pictures. Being someone who is super particular and pretty hard to please, I must have shared with her pages and pages of emails and feedback to which she responded to with the utmost patience and genuine enthusiasm. She made it feel like I was just talking to a friend and after we went in circles and circles about what the design would be, I ultimately selected the very first design she had sent me. And that’s when I knew for certain that we had picked the right designer. Brooke has the patience of saint and was able to allay my fears of designing something I’d be wearing every day for the rest of my life. Brooke is both an amazing professional to work with and an extremely talented artist with an unique eye for sparkles. The final result was beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I’ve never seen a ring prettier than the one on my hand right now and no pictures can capture the way I feel about this ring! It’s just the right balance of grandeur and simplicity and most of all - it is 100% me. I can not thank Brooke enough for being a part of one of the most special days of my life and I would not only recommend her but convince anyone else looking for a jeweler, that she is the only one they need!!!"

-Sahana, San Francisco, Summer 2019

 

"Brooke is one of those people that just gets you from very early on. I came in dreading to go through the custom ring process, but I knew very quickly that dealing with Brooke was going to be different. Her patience, ability to listen, and proactively suggest options that fit our vision made the entire process a pure joy. She is also extremely responsive and is a pleasure to work with. Seeing the finished ring on my fiancée’s finger was a dream come true. Thank you for making this possible Brooke!"

-Vishal, San Francisco, Summer 2019

 

"I reached out to Brooke after losing an earring of a pair that my grandmother had left to me when she died. I was devastated knowing that this was the one heirloom I had left. I really liked the earrings but I don’t wear them often. Brooke was so awesome to share some ring designs that I could choose from in order to repurpose the earring. After choosing one and getting my size to her, she kept me updated on every step of the process. This was awesome because there were no hidden fees or surprises at the end. Once getting the ring, it is beautiful and I am so glad to have something I will wear everyday in remembrance of my grandma. Huge thank you to Brooke and Porter Gulch for making it happen!

-Caroline, Denver, Spring 2019

 

"I reached out to a few places looking for a custom engagement ring, and Brooke was miles ahead of anyone else I talked to. From day 1, she was incredibly friendly, helpful and thorough. She understood what I was going for, (even when that changed as we went) and found me so many great gemstones to choose from. Every step of the process was super smooth and left me with lots of confidence that the ring was going to be perfect."

-Matt, San Francisco, Winter 2018

 

"Wow, where to begin. I first met Brooke a few years ago through a work connection; I interviewed her about her jewelry business for my blog. I immediately fell for her simple yet unique settings and custom work across all pieces, from rings to earrings and more. Fast forward to summer 2017 when my original wedding and engagement rings were stolen -- feeling sad about losing the now-10-year-old set, I remembered loving Porter Gulch and I reached out to Brooke, contemplating a custom engagement ring and wedding band set. From the initial conversation, Brooke's attention to detail, ability to listen to ALL of my questions (I am a fine jewelry novice) and my waffling on decisions, and guidance throughout the process transformed what was originally a sad experience into one that was truly fun and exciting!! I worked with Brooke to find a gorgeous diamond through her contacts in San Francisco, and she was incredible at listening to exactly what we were looking to see and to spend to help us choose the perfect stone. Then, Brooke designed a custom yellow gold engagement ring halo setting and delicate infinity band with teeny, sparkling diamonds -- both enhanced the stunner of a center stone. She even worked with my husband to surprise me with the pair when they were done. And you should SEE THEM. OMG. Photos really don't do them justice, they are SO sparkly. They really are distractingly beautiful. I may even love them more than the originals for their timelessness and uniqueness. Thank you thank you Brooke; your work is exceptional, your service is unparalleled. 5/5, would work with you again. 😘💍✨."

Kristin, San Francisco, Fall 2018

 

"Working with Brooke on my bespoke wedding band was an absolute pleasure, from concept to finished product. I discovered Porter Gulch via a Pinterest post, and immediately reached out. As soon as I saw the pieces on the PG website, I knew that it was a place that could help me realize my vision. After digitally connecting with Brooke and sending her a few photos of the very unconventional wedding band I had in mind, she quickly sent me back a few different sketched ideas. I'm positive I could have been over the moon pleased with any of them-- every single one was stunning. Moving throughout the process with her-- from sketches, to CAD drawings, to 3D printed model, to the finalized band-- was nothing short of awe inspiring. She truly is an artist, and it's a pleasure not just to watch her work, but to participate. She kept me looped in and asked for my feedback every step of the way. After realizing that we would be flying into San Francisco for a Napa wedding over a holiday weekend, Brooke went above and beyond to hand deliver my band to me at a Sonoma winery. The entire process was so unbelievably special, and it means so very much to know how much love and care went into creating something that I will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you so much, Brooke."

Chelsea, Lexington, KY, Summer 2018

 

"My custom engagement ring is absolutely perfect. I came to Brooke with a number of styles I liked, which were (admittedly) all over the place, and she was so wonderful in helping me figure out what details were most important to me. The result is a ring that PERFECTLY suits my style and will, I'm sure, become a treasured family heirloom. I get so many compliments on it, and even though we've been engaged for a few months now, and I still can't stop looking at it!"

Lainey, Los Angeles, Summer 2018

 

"Brooke is such an amazing person and a very talented jeweler! I can't imagine going to anyone else. She made a custom engagement ring for my fiance and is currently working on my wedding band and I already know the finished product is going to be absolutely amazing. She is very knowledgable and really takes the time to get to know you to get exactly what you want. I've since referred friends, family, and everyone I know to Brooke and Porter Gulch because she does such great work and is so fun and easy to work with on any project. No question, I'll be calling on Brooke for all my future jewelry needs. Thank you Brooke!"

Justin, Los Angeles, Summer 2018

 

"This was an incredibly positive experience for me. I had no idea how to go about proposing to my partner. Everything seemed so complicated but the one piece of the puzzle that was easy was the engagement ring that I got through Brooke at Porter Gulch. Brooke was incredibly hands-on, helpful and creative while helping me navigate the perfect design for my fiance. I have been recommending her to others because my experience was so positive. I would hire Brooke again in a heartbeat but let's hope this is my only wedding!"

Sean, San Francisco, Spring 2018

 

"I went to Brooke with an unusual ring request: I wanted to re-do my engagement ring after being married for a few years. The original design was lovely, but it wasn't right for the stone my husband and I chose and I wanted something that let in more light. Working with a ring design I was fond of and images of an Art Deco drawing as inspiration, Brooke was able to translate my dream and vision into a stunning ring. I love it!"

Emily, San Francisco, Spring 2018

 

"We had the most wonderful experience working with Brooke to design and create my 20th anniversary ring. She was calm and patient as she went over each of the different stone and setting styles that I was interested in considering. At all stages of the process, she gave us several options and made sure we were choosing the ring that would be the right fit for me. The entire experience was pleasant and easy. I LOVE the ring, its simply perfection. We love supporting small businesses especially those that go out of their way to give you a unique and positive experience. I look forward to working with Brooke again in the future."

Marcy & Tom, Danville, Spring 2018

 

"Brooke is a delight to work with. She is so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and skilled at what she does. She redesigned my engagement ring and wedding band, and updated the materials from white gold to platinum. She was responsive and helpful in deciding on a new design, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I've already recommended Porter Gulch to friends and I can't wait for the next time I get to purchase some of Brooke's beautiful jewelry."

Megan, San Rafael, Fall 2017

 

"I came to Brooke with a blank slate, knowing only that I wanted to work with her to create something special for my wife. The only thing comparable to the quality of Brooke's work is her taste. She designed and laid out several beautiful options, any of which would've been amazing. We decided together on the most perfect diamond eternity ring, and my wife and I could not be happier with the end result."

Sean, San Francisco, Summer 2017

 

"Brooke was a pleasure to work with. Responsive, thoughtful and timely. She made great suggestions that my wife ended up loving. Both pieces she worked on were beautiful and of the highest quality. I'm looking forward to working with her again."

Andrew, New York City, Summer 2017

 

"It was such a joy working with Brooke designing my ring. I had followed her work for several years and knew when it came time to getting engaged, I would want her to design my ring. It was so special having a ring made by someone so passionate, intentional, creative, and so kind! She responsibly sources her diamonds and uses high quality gems. Did I mention that I LOVE my engagement ring? I get compliments everywhere I go. I look forward to designing our wedding bands over the next year."

Heidi, Phoenix, AZ, Spring 2017 

 

"It was an exceptional experience working with Brooke! Actually I did not work with her, my husband did; I was just the incredibly lucky recipient of two beautiful rings! Brooke reset a family diamond in such a gorgeous setting. It highlighted the diamond in a way the original setting never did. And to go with it she designed a beautiful sapphire band that is exactly what I had pictured. They're flawless together! I love them and will definitely return to Porter Gulch for more jewelry in the future!"

Julia, San Rafael, CA, Winter 2016

 

"Brooke made my engagement ring, wedding bands for my husband and I, and also completed two custom design projects for my wedding jewelry: resetting my diamond studs and creating perfectly simple gold chain necklaces. Every piece I own from Porter Gulch is stunning, sturdy, and unique. I also love how versatile each piece is. I wear my Porter Gulch jewelry everyday but also on the days I get dressed up. They make every outfit more beautiful."

Kate, San Francisco, Fall 2016

 

"I love Porter Gulch! Brooke provides amazing service--she made each piece of jewelry just for me. She helped me choose a small tag ring for a gift to my sisters, and she found a perfect stone when I wanted a nontraditional wedding ring. Love the styles of Porter Gulch, and also how much intention goes into the people. Thanks Brooke!"

Diana, New Orleans, Fall 2016

 

"Brooke was absolutely incredible to work with. She was not only able to take my vision and turn it into something amazing, but also helped coach me through shipping family diamonds and making sure everything was insured and cared for. I could not recommend her enough. If you're getting engaged and want to create something totally unique, work with Porter Gulch."

Sam, Los Angeles, Spring 2016

 

"Brooke took an old diamond and sapphire pin of my grandmothers and gave it new life as matching stacking rings for my sister and I. She makes the most beautiful modern jewelry and is super helpful throughout the design process. I love my new rings and have already used her for several other custom pieces. Can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her to anyone!"

Liz, Ridgewood, NJ, Spring 2016

 

"My husband commissioned Brooke to design a pair of diamond earrings I could wear everyday. They are so elegant and beautiful in their simplicity and I feel special every time I wear them. I would never have thought that custom diamonds could be "affordable" but they are and Brooke delivered on every count."

Tracy, Kansas City, MO, Spring 2016

 

"Brooke was great to work with! We designed a custom engagement ring, selected just the right diamonds, and it came out amazing."

Jordan, San Francisco, Spring 2015

 

"Brooke, made the Betty Ring for me with three stunning, pink sapphires and it is just beautiful. Another lovely piece from Brooke and her attention to what I am looking for is incredible. I adore her jewelry and am so honored to own several pieces. Thank you Brooke!"
