About Us

custom jewelry designer san diego

‘I worked intensely for 3 weeks trying my best to create my first diamond to present to the 3rd generation Dutch master cutter apprenticing me. He smiled and quietly handed back my prized gem that I had suffered so much to make brilliant. I realized then only perfection would be accepted. I still carry this endless search for the beauty in each and every diamond and jewelry piece. It is my sincere hope that Faulhaber clients have many years of enjoyment and pleasure in knowing their fine jewelry is also a quest for perfection.’
