“To say that I’m absolutely in love with my jewelry is an understatement. I love modern, bold, layered jewelry - unique, artful pieces… your designs have checked all the boxes! Thank you so much! I'm addicted.” - Lisa O.
“I have a square stack ring from Colleen Mauer Designs that I adore and wear every day. The square set is uber comfortable and gives a bit of edge on my hands. Recently I purchased a pair of earrings that I get so many compliments on. They are a two interlocking ovals in different metals. They are a classic design with a little bit of a twist. Always fun to see what new designs Colleen has cooked up.” - Kathy of San Francisco, CA
“I had the most amazing experience with Colleen to pick out my wedding set, during a one on one consultation. I have quite a few pieces already and knew that she would be the person I wanted to create my dream combination. She spent just the right amount of time showing me so many beautiful stacks, trying them on so I could see the style and made great suggestions based on my budget and personal style. She described and showed me all the different metals, with/without diamonds and her extra elements she adds to her designs so I could really get a good view of all of the options. We were able to narrow it down to a few favorites.
The final stack is absolutely a dream. What I also love is I can add rings from other stack ideas in the future and I know they will go absolutely beautifully together. I have a rose gold diamond one in mind for an anniversary. I’m so pleased with my beautiful rings and she is such a wonderful, sweet person to talk to. I’m grateful for the experience and am hooked on all of her beautiful pieces. I rarely need to shop anywhere else because she really offers everything, timeless, unique and perfect everyday wear. Thank you Colleen! You are fabulous!” - April of Dover, NH
“It turned out even better than I could have imagined. Jen and the CMD team made valuable suggestions to my original idea that resulted in a more attractive final stack. The process was extremely easy and the final product is heirloom quality -- I fully expect it to last forever. I wear it everyday, which I think tells you how pleased I am with the design and quality. 10/10, would highly recommend!.” - Erin of Palmyra, VA
“I first learned about Colleen Mauer's beautiful jewelry from my daughter-in-law who lives in the Bay Area. She was wearing the square stacked rings in different combinations and I knew I needed some of my own! Not living in the area, I shopped through the website and Colleen was so helpful with long-distance sizing suggestions. I love Colleen's creative mix of metals, shapes, and textures which makes for great variety in day-to-day wear. I recently had the pleasure of visiting her shop in San Francisco, which is a lovely light-filled space, perfect for trying on jewelry! Dani was so helpful with suggestions and I am wearing my beautiful new necklace as I write this. Many thanks to Colleen (and my daughter-in-law!) for these go to pieces!" - Amy of Rhode Island
Because these rings take up a lot of space on the finger, it's tough to estimate the right ring size, even if you know your size pretty well. Plus, as you go through a typical day, your fingers will swell up or shrink. The experts at CMD have a brilliant solution for this--they send you three different stack sets: the size you think you need, plus one that's a half size bigger and a half size smaller. You can wear the different stacks and really test drive which size is going to be right for you. Everything comes with a simple pre-printed return label too, so when you have your ring sized, you can just drop everything back into the envelope and return it.
The other amazing part of purchasing is the ability to customize! I really liked one of the stacks but wanted to swap out one of the rings. The CMD team (I worked with Jen!) set up a zoom so I could work directly with Colleen on customizing the perfect stack for me. It was so easy and I never had to leave my house!
I absolutely ADORE my stack and I get a zillion compliments every time I wear it, by the way. LOVE THIS PIECE! Thanks for making it so easy, risk free, and perfect for me!” - Emme of Sacramento, CA
I first discovered Colleen Mauer Designs with a friend at West Coast Craft in SF several years ago. Started with a single round stack, which I rapidly augmented with different singles, stacks, special occasion bands - all the metals, all the widths, all the shapes! Plus diamonds! Yes, I am obsessed. Colleen's work is unique, elegant, understated, simple and gorgeous. I love, love, love all of her jewelry and am looking forward to adding more rings from her latest collection. I was lucky enough to shop with Colleen in person in San Francisco pre-pandemic, and have enjoyed virtual shopping with her since. Working directly with Colleen is a real treat - she is so talented and down to earth - one can never go wrong with her recommendations. Her special occasion rings are aptly named - and are also great everyday rings. I get compliments on her jewelry all the time - including the bracelets, earrings and necklaces. I don't stack them all, but close! While I have quite the CMD collection already, I doubt that I will ever have enough!" - Leigh Anne of San Anselmo, CA
