(PRESS RELEASE) LEOMINSTER, MA – Chris Ploof, designer and founder of Chris Ploof Designs, announces the launch of his new “Precision Cut Precious” collection, featuring an initial assortment of high-quality rings and wedding bands in all precious metal, a distinct brand expansion for the designer who is known for hand-forged Damascus Steel and Mokume Gane, among other modern metals. The new collection of 14 pieces made its debut at a personal appearance in Minneapolis in early March 2024. The gender neutral designs can each be customized with a variety of options including metal combinations, sizes, widths, and gemstone additions. Current pricing ranges between $1,210 to $3,500, and the designer is planning to add diamonds (high quality precision melee, D-G color and VVS or better) in the near future. Ploof also plans to expand the assortment into other jewelry categories such as bracelets, earrings, and pendants soon.

“I have never been a fan of the thin gold bands in the marketplace, made in the cheapest way possible, and my team and I knew I could make something better,” said Ploof. “None of our new ‘Precision Cut Precious’ rings are cast. They are made from drawn tubing which is then machined. This allows me to very precisely manufacture these pieces that are heavier and higher quality than most of what is available on the marketplace. These solid, heavy, beautiful thick big rings will last a lifetime.”

The collection was originally inspired by a retail partner request to make wedding bands as a replacement for a respected European brand that went out of business. These rings are hand-made with very precise standards of manufacturing in Chris’s solar powered studio in central Massachusetts. The bands rival the quality of high-end European brands, but they are made here in America, meaning no delays for orders and/or sizing, as well as no import duties.

“For those seeking a really high quality precious metal band, nobody else is creating them with solar power and with such precise standards,” adds Ploof.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
