Birth of Unique
The owners of Unique Settings, whom are also successful New Jersey retailers,
were growing increasingly frustrated because they could not find a supplier to
provide the custom jewelry items they needed for their customers.
If they needed a ring in platinum
that was offered in 14K, the suppliers did not stock it. If they
needed a ring for a 3-carat center instead of the one-carat version
that was offered, the casting houses did not make it. If their
customers wanted a design in a different total weight, the suppliers
did not offer that version also. If they needed a ring to be in a
size 3, they were told that the design could not be sized to this
finger size in the metal. Some companies offered to sell them their
in-stock mountings set with their choice of stones, and stone quality,
but none would allow them to send in their stones for the job. In
addition, when they finally found a company that would make their
custom piece, they usually took up to 4 weeks, if they were willing
to take the project. Over time, they realized that the 24-hour companies
were not filling many of their important sales needs.
Unique Settings of New York began manufacturing in 1999 with one guiding
promise. We help the retailer to say yes to special requests. Unique Settings
provides the independent retail jeweler the styling they need, an unlimited
number of choices, cast in most precious metals, in any finger size; as a raw
casting, as a polished mounting or as a finished piece of custom jewelry.
