I’m all about creating bold, wearable styles for men. These two open-concept rings are exactly that! Reach out today to step up your style game with an original Tuggle design. 💥
So stoked to finally finish up my newest signet ring! This piece has been a passion project, and I’ve been working on it here and there when I could find the time. Although my wife is wearing the ring in the photos, I designed it as a men’s pinky ring. ⚡️Please drop a comment below and let me know what you think!! . Hand carved and cast, two-tone sterling silver, 24k inlay, orange, black & white diamonds, and yellow sapphires. Total of 121 pavé set stones in this piece! This piece is a size 7 and is currently AVAILABLE. Please DM to inquire.
Next open concept men’s band is out the door and happily on the finger of its new owner! Really loving this style - you’ll be seeing more of these in the next couple months.

Couldn’t be more proud of this woman! What do you all think of her latest and greatest?! #Repost @thistuggle ・・・ Next evolution in my quest to design scrollwork. Huge shoutout to @bespoke engraver for all the guidance on this piece. It’s my most perfect and fluid scrolls yet!
Congratulations Gaby & Jared!! These wedding bands were hand carved and cast in 14k white gold, with VS diamonds and blue sapphire brilliants. The contour wedding band is the perfect compliment to her sapphire engagement ring made last year (can’t wait to share pictures of the set together!). He wanted a plain band, so I added a little something special on the inside... complete with blue sapphire dots! 💙
Never shared these photos of a kinetic pendant I had the pleasure of making earlier this year. These 3 photos show the movement of the piece (rotates both ways - can spin around 180° and also rotate in any position within the outer circle), along with the hand engraved details on each side. This is one of two identical pendants made for my client. Hand fabricated in 14k yellow gold and two-tone sterling silver, with a bright cut pavé pattern featuring a cabochon aventurine, and brilliant cut yellow sapphires and blue topaz. Would love to make more works in this style! DM today to get your custom piece started. 💥
A good friend and fellow jeweler needed a last minute graduation gift, and luckily @thistuggle was up for the challenge! She quickly found a design from Sam Alfano’s Ornamental Design book and went to work. The steel was quite hard and not the nicest to cut, but overall we are happy with the result. Hand engraved items make incredibly special gifts, reach out today to have one made just for you. ⚜️
A new antique for the shop! This is called a draw bench, or draw horse, and it’s purpose is to draw down wire for jewelry making. To make wire, we will melt down precious metals into an ingot and roll that through the rolling mill, drawing the ingot down in size until it’s small enough to pull through a draw plate (the plate with all the holes in the first pic). Then we will draw the wire down to size, annealing the metal as needed along the way. Before, I had to pull everything by hand, so this draw horse is a game changer!! 🐎
I’ve had this fun men’s band on my mind lately! Such a bold, striking design with the center crown and eyes inlaid in 24k gold. Would love to make more in this style - what center element would you want to see?? NFS - reach out to start your own custom creation. 👑
Building our collection for the Aspen Art Festival this July! Here is a new stacking ring fresh #offthebench, fabricated and hand engraved in oxidized sterling silver with yellow gold vermeil. Digging the minimal geometric vibe of this ring, and love the light play with all those bright cuts. 🔪✨
Had to share this beautiful rose engine turned plate by @astral vessels. He makes some of the most beautiful vessels and urns. If you aren’t following his page yet, go check it out!!

Happy Mother’s Day! I got to make two edgy Mother’s pendants for two badass moms this year. First one features an oval cabochon London blue topaz, and the second features round cabochon rhodolite garnet & aquamarine. Both were hand fabricated in oxidized sterling and gold vermeil, with custom hand engraved “Mom” chain tags. NFS - reach out today to get started on a custom one for a mom in your life. 💜
Couldn’t be happier with how this platinum, garnet, and diamond wedding set re-make turned out! The piece holds special meaning for my client and was fabricated from her original engagement ring. The garnet was also from her original ring and was sourced from a local garnet mine. Congratulations Sarah, thanks for letting me make this special piece for you! Have some old jewelry sitting around that just isn’t your style? Reach out today to design your dream piece with us! . Hand fabricated asymmetric wedding set in platinum, with a fancy garnet (cabochon top, faceted bottom) and VS diamonds. NFS.
It’s a wonderful, rainy Tuesday in Colorado and we’re busy at the bench with custom bridal projects. Thought I’d share this pin made last year for a good friend and fellow jeweler. Hand fabricated and hand engraved with the learn pattern in 14k yellow gold and oxidized sterling silver. NFS - DM to get your custom hat pin started!
