I have been collecting jewelry for fifty years. I have often refigured rings, bracelets, earrings, adding elements or having whole new designs made using stones or parts of existing pieces. There is one jeweler whose craftsmanship and artistic eye exceeds anyone I have ever worked with, and that is Robin Woolard. When you bring a piece to Robin, you have confidence in someone you can explicitly trust to safeguard, evaluate, and enhance your personal treasures. His designs are gorgeous. Friends in the business have looked at his pieces with awe, envying his remarkable executions of gold and platinum. I would never take my jewelry to anyone but Robin Woolard.
Robin & Galina are just wonderful. My fiancé found out about this shop from a friend when he was looking for an engagement ring. Robin helped him to custom design a ring, taking into consideration all of the things he wanted the ring to be. My ring is just perfect, and I get TONS of comments because it is truly one of a kind After the proposal, we came back to design a wedding band to go with my ring, as well as a very unique and beautiful ring for my fiancé. Prices are competitive, and his work is flawless. You can’t go wrong!
Hands-down, Robin and Galina are simply the best! I met a woman on the bas who’s fiancé had worked with them on her engagement ring (which was absolutely stunning) and knew that we had to check them out. I’m so grateful for that random encounter because Robin and Galina are not only extremely talented at what they do, they are some of the nicest people we’ve ever met and had the pleasure of doing business with. Whether it was staying open past their normal hours to look at diamonds, showing us how Robin starts the creative process (he uses the classic clay method for molds which is an art in itself), being patient (initially I had about 100 designs I liked) or just taking the time to get to know us as a couple, they did it.
As for my ring, I’m still completely in awe… I knew it would be special but the final product turned out better than I could have imagined. Everyone who sees my ring has the same reaction too… they are blown away, say its one of the most unique rings they’ve ever seen and cant stop staring at it!
Mr. Woolard did some work to an engagement ring for me and it was a great experience. His expertise and attention to detail resulted in a stunning product that my fiancé LOVES! This is the only place I will go in SF to buy future jewelry
This place is jewel in itself! It is inside of the Fairmont Hotel in SF. I have few pieces from them and I love everything about them. I wear my diamond studs every day and never got tired of them. The price was amazing for the quality of the diamonds. When I stopped by another time they offered to clean me jewelry for free! I can’t say enough good things about the owner, Robin Woolard and this place, the process and the final product. He’s simply one of the best businessmen in the bay area, and a class-act
I was recommended Robin when I was just beginning my research for an engagement ring. Naturally, I was nervous when I entered his beautiful store, but immediately he made me comfortable discussing what I might be looking for. What really set him apart was when we began designing the design of the ring, we selected the stone, but then he crafted the initial setting out of clay so i could visualize what it would look like before committing. The clay mold looked fantastic, and then he went to work crafting a ring my fiancee absolutely loved then, and still does today. Robin and Galina are amazing collaborators on creating beautiful works of art, and I have since recommended them to friends and family who have also worked with on gorgeous pieces.
