“A MaeVona engagement ring stands out next to other rings for being low-set and unfussy,” says Gillies. “Simple, but always with beautiful attention to detail.”

“As a designer, I strive to be original, using my goldsmithing and art background as well as my heritage in Scotland to create pieces that respect tradition, with a fresh twist.”

Growing up, Gillies loved to draw and make tiny things. “When I discovered I could do this in stunning precious metal and gorgeous gemstones, representing romance and love to customers who were deeply moved by their purchases, I was hooked!”
