About Us

Since 1890, the Kirk Kara artists and artisans have handcrafted rings and fine jewelry. Each exquisite piece is designed to be forever captivating.

Engagement Ring

Set for Life

You don’t take life decisions lightly, and neither do we. You have finally found the man you’ll spend your life with, and we believe your diamond should be “set for life,” too.

We understand that the couples who choose our rings trust in our extraordinary craftsmanship and that every meticulously handcrafted detail matters. From hand-engraving each ring with stunning, intricate filagree to using the word’s best metals to selecting only perfect, hand-cut gemstones, we understand that promising those details for life matters most of all.

For generations, our family has been creating breathtaking pieces, not only visually stunning and unique designs, but quality pieces that outshine the industry standard because our process is second-to-none. Our founder, Kirk Kara himself, said “there are no shortcuts to perfection,” and his belief embodies every aspect of our process.

Our rings are architecturally striking: we make each piece in hand-sculpted molds and hand-solder their backings. Our artists, not machines, masterfully add breathtaking detail to every Kirk Kara design. Perhaps most importantly, we hand-set each stone–no matter the size or shape–under a microscope. Every single diamond is set by hand in four prongs, because we believe that your special ring should sparkle every day for the rest of your life like it will on the day you say “yes!”
