I cannot say enough good things about Designs by Kamni and Kamni herself!!!! My now fiancé Joe (still can’t believe it!) and I went to go see Kamni in her NYC office in April 2016. We had been dating awhile and started seriously talking about m...
arriage and engagement rings. The two of us didn’t really know too much about rings, about the specifics or even what we liked. We went to a few other places before finding Kamni and to be honest I was REALLY nervous at that point. We did the whole Diamond District visiting booths and booths of diamond sellers that do just that – sell you diamonds. Kamni was extremely different (I will get into that in a little bit). Joe and I walked into one of the booths and felt so overwhelmed, confused, and pressured… meanwhile we only had the chance to talk with a sales person for less than five minutes!! We hated the entire process of the typical Diamond District until we found Kamni. Although she is located in the Diamond District she has her own office in the GIA building and was EXTREMLY professional. Weirdly enough I first found Kamni on Instagram. I remember looking at her rings with actual tears in my eyes. I had no idea how much went into each ring, each couple, and each process, which in turn made us love her even more.
When we actually made an appointment with Kamni she didn’t mind the fact that we were coming from far (CT) and happened to be 30 minutes late trying to find parking at rush hour. I was instantly impressed with the security in the building, her office, and being greeted with champagne (who DOESN’T love champagne and diamonds?!). Anyway, she spoke with us for over an HOUR. Yes, we went into detail on rings, diamonds, shapes, sizes, the 4 c’s and everything. However, she also got to know us as a couple which really really impressed us. Kamni sized my finger and actually had me try on a bunch of samples she had. Every single ring she designs is custom, which completely sets her a part from other places. I always dreamed I would have a custom ring that no one else would have but never thought it was in price range. After our initial meeting Kamni and Joe spoke frequently to work on my PERFECT (and when I say perfect I mean perfect) ring. She sent him computerized designs, pictures, etc. He was 100% in the loop the entire time even being far away. I loved that he got to pick every little thing about the ring.
Overall, DBK did an incredible job with my ring and we couldn’t be more excited. We got engaged Labor Day weekend 2016 and when Joe got down on one knee it took me a solid 20 minutes before I really got to look at the ring……but when I did I cried even harder!! If you are looking for an engagement ring or ANY kind of luxury jewelry for a great place check out Kamni. She is not only our jeweler but also now our friend!!!! Happy shopping ☺
