Couple gets creative with local artisans to mark silver anniversary in gold

As Margot and Paul Hightower approached their 25th wedding anniversary, Margot knew she wanted something special to mark the milestone.

She loved her wedding ring and wanted to add a complementary piece; in fact, she already had a design in mind when she first visited Jeffrey’s Jewelry Design Studio in Federal Way.

What happened next yielded more than a few pleasant surprises!

“Jeffrey’s” is actually the skilled team of master goldsmith Jeffrey Buetow and skilled jewelry designer John Profit. The two share decades of collective experience in all aspects of the industry, and together have elevated the level of jewelry design, creating both brand new jewelry and remarkable transformations from existing pieces.

“I had been going to Jeffrey’s for a really long time, so I knew they were very friendly and knowledgeable,” Margot says.

What she wasn’t as prepared for was how easy and affordable the process was…

More affordable than expected: By using a consignment wedding set from the store, the Hightowers saved one-third to one-half of the cost of creating the ring from new materials, she says. “I already had a design in mind and we visited a few times until we found the perfect set to work with. With John we were able to take an already beautiful piece of jewelry and re-create it into something new and meaningful to us.”

Design expertise created the perfect piece: While Margo already had an idea of what she wanted, Jeffrey and John listened to her goals and with their decades of design knowledge, created a ring that was even better than she hoped. In re-imagining the original wedding set, Margot initially envisioned a curving white gold band set with a single diamond. Profit suggested incorporating some of the smaller diamonds as well, and through several revisions, created the stunning piece Margot wears today. “They are so open and gave me some amazing ideas I hadn’t considered,” she says. “When we got the wax mold, it as so exciting.”

The process was easy and enjoyable: “I thought the process would be difficult, but it was so fun and creative,” Margot reflects. “John and Jeffrey really do work hard to make it all so simple, and to create the perfect piece. I even have diamonds left from the original ring to create earrings or a necklace!

“After working with Jeffrey’s on our anniversary ring, I couldn’t be happier.”
