I wanted to say thank you SO much for the incredible work you did creating my ring. It is absolutely stunning -- better than anything I could've imagined. Your idea to turn the ring on its side was brilliant, and the entire setting is seamless. I'm blown away.


Thank you for all the amazing work you've done for us! We are so grateful -- I've only been wearing it for a day, and I've had a dozen people stop me and comment on it.


Thanks again! Looking forward to the next project :)

“My wife and I worked with Dave to design a ring. He and his team did an excellent job. Dave is the type of person that you can not only depend on to do a great job at a great price, but also someone that is really a joy to work with. I would recommend Dave to anyone without reservation.”

Hi, David. Just wanted to thank you for all of your help with Wendi’s ring. She absolutely loves it. Hope you have a great summer. We’re headed out on our honeymoon today. Take care and thanks again.

First off, Thank YOU so much for finding the perfect diamond for my engagement ring. I LOVE it so much and have been showing it off to all my friends. I couldn’t ask for a more perfect ring and diamond. It shines and sparkles exactly like I wanted it to. The diamond is huge too and you really knew exactly what I wanted with a little bit of input from Nick. If anyone were to get engaged, you are definitely the person to go to. Thank you again for making my engagement even more special with the perfect diamond ring that I was proposed to by my new fiance Nick (love saying this).
You made my YEAR David and so did Nick of course. Thank you again!

My fiancee and I were traveling through Italy before we were engaged, and we found the perfect setting for a ring in a small jewelry shop in Florence. The stone was not the size we were looking for, but she loved the setting. I took a picture of the ring in Florence with my phone, and to say it was a touch blurry is a generous statement. When it was time for me to buy a ring, I asked Dave if he could help me design a similar setting with a bigger stone, and he nailed it!! It is even better than the original, and my fiancee loves it. Dave makes the process seamless, and works with any one’s schedule or budget. Don’t look any further…Dave’s the man!
– Jerome Elenez – Dallas, TX

David is so good that he actually talked to my “fiancee to be” about what she wanted her future ring to look like…without her knowing I was going to propose. He came to me with a design, and he got it perfect from the start. The ring is comprised of 21 emerald cut diamonds that he actually had cut & brought in from Israel, specifically for her ring. The entire process of working with David is a joy and most importantly, he is very honest!

Thank you so much for the incredible work you did on our ring! I officially got engaged last night and I couldn’t be happier with the ring!! We’ll be picking out Sean’s wedding band in the semi-near future and we’d love to have it made through you so we’ll be in touch shortly. Thanks again for making my dream ring a reality!!

You, good sir, are an amazing jewelry designer. What a perfect ring you made for Ash! She absolutely loves it. Thank you!
– Clifton Dugas – Dallas, TX

David, Jim gave me the ring tonight and it is more than beautiful! I never imagined how lovely it could look. Thank you for working your magic and all the help you provided. Merry Christmas!
– Susan Huey – Fort Worth, TX

Working with David on the engagement ring for my fiance was a first-rate experience. Everything from sizing to design to custom creation of the setting; it was all David. He really took the time to get to know us and he made the perfect recommendations. She loves the ring and it makes me smile every time I catch her admiring it- I’ll never go to a jewelry store again. David will be my first call!

Dave makes the entire process of selecting an engagement ring flawless. He has a customer for life. The patience and attention to detail he exhibits are simply outstanding. The custom design is top-notch, and the diamonds are gorgeous. I stayed on budget, we stayed ahead of schedule, and she was thrilled.
– Cole Daugherty – Dallas, TX

David, what can I say, the ring is nothing short of amazing. It’s clearly a beautiful ring and more importantly the quality is exactly what I had in mind. I appreciate your due diligence in searching out the perfect center stone, it met all my needs and specifications – and that was no easy task. It’s tasteful and carries a huge presence. I love the uniqueness of the setting and having it custom made means no one else will have that exact ring! Your ability to capture and create what I had in mind was on the money! The process itself can be tedious but you were patient, thorough and ever so responsive to my millions of questions. My husband is beyond pleased and is thrilled with how happy this has made me. I’m so glad I was recommended to you. I searched for over a year, before meeting you , and was sadly disappointed in the selections “out there”. I searched on the internet as well as almost every store around and found nothing that caught my eye enough to purchase. I was almost ready to give up hope that I would find a ring that would encompass everything I had dreamed of – until now. I have other jewelry, but this is clearly a one of of a kind treasure. Thank you again, David for making this experience everything I’d hoped it would be and more. I couldn’t ask for a nicer, more patient and knowledgeable jeweler! I look forward to many more dealings with you!
P.S. I cannot stop looking down at my hand, it’s very distracting…

As our 15th anniversary approached, I decided that I wanted to create a custom anniversary band for my wife. I purchased a set of emeralds in Bangkok to use for the ring since they are my wife’s favorite gemstone. I sat down with Dave and sketched out a design and he helped me find a set of diamonds to compliment the emeralds. I had purchased a set of six emeralds knowing that due to the softness of the stones, one was likely to break during the process of setting them. Dave and his team hand crafted a platinum ring for me and managed to set the four emeralds without breaking a single one. This allowed me to have the remaining two made into a matching set of earrings, which Dave executed perfectly. Dave and his team did a fantastic job and the workmanship was flawless. Needless to say, my wife was VERY happy when I presented them to her for our anniversary. When my wife cracked one of the emeralds in her ring recently, Dave was able to use one of the matching stones from the earrings to repair it. He then found me a beautiful new set of emeralds to replace the stones in the earrings. Dave has a customer for life, and my wife and I look forward to collaborating with him on new custom pieces in the future.

Everything was fantastic this weekend. The ring was a huge hit, and looked great. You made Sarah and me very happy. I can’t thank you enough for the quick turn around and great service. Many, many thanks!

Thank you so much for your wonderful service and craftsmanship on the rings. Travis and I just can’t believe how nice both of the rings turned out! He ooed and awed over mine last night. It looks fabulous! Thank you again and I’ll be seeing you soon with the appraisal and Travis’ finished ring!

With so much riding on diamonds and custom jewelry the decision process comes down not only to value, but to trust. Shaw has come through on five pieces for us (four of which were custom), including our three most prescious ones – an engagement ring and both our wedding bands. We found the value and the quality of every piece to was unmatched, and the level of service provided by Shaw was outstanding. I have no hesitation in using, or recommending him for any of life’s little treasures!

Bridal Bouquet

Simply put – Dave made purchasing a diamond engagement ring from Shaw Diamonds & Design the best buying experience possible. Not only did Dave search the entire country to find the precise diamond I desired, he was also a tremendous help in designing a custom engagement ring for my fiance. Dave worked well within my budget and time line both. I have never walked away from a “sale” feeling more confident about my decision to purchase what I did. My fiance and I are extremely happy with the service, professionalism, and knowledge Dave Shaw exhibited throughout the buying process. We highly recommend him as he will be our jeweler for life.
– Craig Murchison – Dallas, TX

Having known David Shaw for nearly 20 years, I had no hesitation at all to enlist David to create a custom jewelry piece. Besides his honesty and integrity — two must-have qualities for a jewelry partner — he’s a truly good guy. Small or large, but especially large, David can take care of your jewelry needs.
– Chris Moseley – Dallas, TX

“Dave is a great jeweler. I have used him for both ‘value’ items, and beautiful diamonds. He has been exceptional in his ability to explain terms and ratings of stones. He worked within my budget to find exactly the right earrings and made suggestions to both improve appearance and save money. I use him and recommend him to all.”
