Simon G: The Only Name in Fine Designer Jewelry

Simon G was established in 1981, and has gone on to become one of the most celebrated brands in the nation. What began as one store in California has grown into a globally recognized fine jewelry brand – and here at Kranich’s Jewelers, we couldn’t be more proud to be named an Authorized Dealer of this exquisite brand.

We carry multiple lines of Simon G engagement rings, earrings, pendants and more. If you are searching for a distinct and timeless piece of fine jewelry, you simply can’t go wrong with Simon G.

Simon G’s Early Career

Simon G moved to America with dreams of going to college to become an engineer. His parents had taught him the importance of honest, hard work – and that if he could build something with his hands that he would never go hungry. With only $200 to his name, he could not afford to go to college, so he began to build his savings by working for a relative in the diamond district of New York.

Once he learned how to set diamonds, he was hooked. The money he was saving for college was instead invested in jewelry making materials. He began creating unique designs, selling them door-to-door. When he moved to California, he launched the Simon G brand – which grew to be so popular that jewelry stores around the world wanted to sell his designs in their stores too.

The Simon G Difference

Simon G turned his hobby and passion into his life’s work, and he considers his work to be his legacy. His approach to design each and every item with the same enthusiasm he would have if he were creating it for himself, or for someone he loves. His goal is always to create a timeless selection that will be passed down through the generations. He is considered one of the most creative jewelers in the industry, with an undeniable signature style. His designs are perfect for every milestone in life, or anytime you simply want a striking piece of fine jewelry.

Simon G Engagement Rings

Simon G engagement rings feature only conflict-free, top-quality diamonds with GH or higher color – and SI or higher clarity. He also works with colored diamonds, and a variety of gemstones. He knows that each bridge desires a ring that is unique, but that also reflects her style. His settings and bands are detailed and intricate, and each ring is designed to be breathtaking from all angles. Currently, he features eight separate lines of engagement rings: Passion, Garden, Fabled, Mosaic, Duchess, Delicate, Caviar, and Simon Sets – allowing for an endless number of possibilities for brides-to-be.

Simon G Wedding Rings for Men

While all wedding ring jewelers offer wedding bands for men, few have the creativity that modern men desire in their ring. Many men wear little jewelry, and therefore opt for plain wedding bands. While there is nothing wrong with plain, it is possible to create a stunning men’s ring that is both stylized and masculine. Simon G rings for men have a variety of textures, are available in mixed metals, and if you want, feature diamonds in a creative way. They are rings are modern men are excited to wear, complementing their unique personality.

More than Wedding and Engagement Rings

Simon G specializes in wedding and engagement rings, but also designs earrings, pendants, and bracelets that make the perfect gift for ladies of all ages. He designs jewelry that is perfect for every occasion – anniversaries, birthdays, holidays or just the celebration of everyday life. Just as with his signature rings, Simon G’s fine jewelry is designed to be a wearable work of art. From classic to contemporary, nature-inspired, and intricate mosaic patterns – there is something for everyone.

Mixed Metals

While some designers work primarily with one or two precious metals, or only in polished metals, mixed metals are an essential part of Simon G’s design process. While some of his pieces are made solely from one precious metal, he often mixes and matches platinum, 18-karat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. The goal is to create striking designs that highlight gemstones and all aspects of the design. From polished gold, to textured, or even wood-grain finish – his innovation is never-ending.

A Custom Design for Every Occasion

If you love the signature style offered by Simon G, but are searching for a custom design, your Kranich’s jeweler will work with you to create a custom engagement ring, pendant, earrings, or more. You can mix and match the features you like from a couple of different rings, mix and match metals, create a colorful design featuring your favorite gemstone, or create something entirely new.

Kranich’s Acquire Amazing Simon G Kunzite Pendant

Simon G. And Kranich BrothersMichael and Charles Kranich purchased a very unique Simon G pendant at the JCK Trade Show in Las Vegas last week. The Simon G pendant features a very rare Kunzite gemstone. Michael Kranich says the Kunzite is a color he has never seen before. Simon G says it took him two years to find this stone. It is not a typical Kunzite. The oval shaped Kunzite is a dark, rich, bright pink color and weighs 32.64 carats. This stone has amazing clarity and brilliance. It is truly a one of a kind gemstone. Simon created an elegant mounting to frame the Kunzite. The stone rests in an 18 karat tri color white, yellow and rose gold mounting with 169 round white diamonds and 17 fancy yellow diamonds as accents. The Kranich’s are very pleased to have acquired such a stunning piece of jewelry to display in their stores. One lucky customer will make it their own!

Simon G. and The Lili Claire Foundation

When I returned from vacation this week, much like most people I returned to a long list of emails and new paperwork. I spent a while working through everything and then discovered a few DVDs waiting in my basket. The one on top caught my eye immediately when I saw the name Simon G. on the front. Simon G. Jewelry is one of my favorite designers that we carry here at Kranich’s Jewelers so I loaded it in my machine. What I found was not new promotional materials for their line, but a very nice video about their partnership with the Lili Claire Foundation. I have included the video in this post and I am glad that such a great company like Simon G. Jewelry can help out this great foundation.
