Feels like yesterday that I returned from my backpacking trip in Southeast Asia… I was 26 and filled with a newfound confidence. I had been dabbling in jewelry making and found a real love for the craft. I wanted to experiment more and follow my heart's desire to live a creative life. Ironically, [...]
Nearly 20 years ago, I packed up a suitcase and headed to San Francisco with a few hundred bucks in my bank account. I was so young (22!) and filled with the hope that I could carve my own path, far away from my family and the comforts that came with the [...]
This year's Sample Sale has been one for the memory books.The deadline to sign up for new sale sessions has passed, but we’ve booked appointments through Saturday, June 13th. So, that makes this the final week of the 2020 (First-Ever) Virtual Sample Sale... and [...]
Two months into these very wild times, and CMD is definitely hanging in there. Earlier this week, we welcomed back Julia, the third and final leg of our NY team trifecta. Kelsey, Jen and Sam feel as much a part of the crew as ever before [...]

Thank you for your continued support of our small business. We love what we do, and it's because of people like you that we can evolve, not only as a company, but with each collection that we handcraft with love [...]
We wanted to offer online shoppers as much of the SF Shop & Design Studio experience as we could online, so we built an online ring bar. This is one of my, and my customers parts of the in-store experience. And voila. I introduce to you, The Ring Bar.
Straight out of the ever-popular Black & Gold Collection, these babies make for a bold, elegant and timeless statement piece that you shouldn't think twice about adding to your collection. And don't forget, we offer complimentary re-oxidation and cleaning services as a courtesy to all our customers for life.
If you haven’t been into the Showroom, I’d love to invite you to swing by and join me here. It’s my home away from home. You can check out our creative space (brimming with tools and sketches) and try on any of our beautifully finished pieces. We even have a Ring Bar where you can build customized stacks.
This is a very special week, as my beloved grandma turns 100 years old on July 29! Does she look incredible or what!? I feel so grateful that my life has been surrounded by strong, inspiring women, and my grandma is a huge part of that unshakeable foundation.
CMD runs on woman power, and we’re all the stronger for it. We were delighted to spend the last few days at our New York Production Studio, all the way across the country from our San Francisco HQ. While we may span time zones, our common passions, worth ethics and respect for one another keep us closely tied together.
