And some nice words about our Serbian jewellery as well:
This real wedding feature shows a glimpse into Jack and Martha's charming Rockton wedding. These two were such a joy to work with; So happy, full of love and bursting at the seams with positive energy. Just thinking about them as I type this puts a huge smile on my face. It started with Martha's unique engagement ring, then His and Hers wedding bands, special jewellery wedding gifts for each other and finally bridal jewellery for the bride to wear on the big day. The wedding rings were so meaningful to this couple that they included photos of them and a write-up right in their wedding program. I'm truly honoured to have been a part of their remarkable journey.

Last month I was interviewed for a fun, fashion feature for the Hamilton Spectator. Interviewer (and photographer) Sheryl Nadler and I discussed personal style, shopping, and of course jewellery and accessories. The article also touches on how and when I got introduced to the wonderful world of jewellery design.

Winter Wedding Wonderland
How lucky was this couple to have such a beautiful backdrop for their wedding day? Snow covering the ground but melted from the trees leaving them green... so pristine and idyllic. Kevin and Alexandra are so sweet to share with me pics of their big day. My role as jeweller is just one step of many and I love it when couples I work with touch base and I get to see how it all came together. And it's always great seeing my rings in action. Wedding photographers often feature them in such creative and pretty ways and local wedding photographer, Kendra Vandervelde, is no exception. She did a wonderful job... all of the photos are so lovely and the winter backdrop divine. Kudos to Alexandra and her bridesmaids for braving the cold sans sleeves but the photos are certainly worth it. Here are just a few. For more visit http://www.kendraruthphotography.com/
IN THE WORKS
Working on a bespoke, platinum engagement ring with a vintage vibe. Cushion cut centre with halo and some old-world elements. I have a feeling it's going to be so very pretty.
A lovely 18K white gold engagement ring custom made for Paul and Paula. A classically elegant engagement ring featuring a marquise cut diamond in a beautiful halo setting.
Nothing like beautiful details to make an engagement ring truly special. This beauty features a diamond halo and shank but the pretty doesn't stop there. Design details make this engagement ring gorgeous from all angles.
We now have the Forever One Moissanite in store for you to see. Forever One was recently released by Charles and Colvard as a whiter alternative to their Forever Brilliant Mossanite. On the diamond colour grading scale it comes in at the D-E-F range of whiteness. If you've been considering and researching diamond alternatives for your engagement ring then you've probably come across Moissanite. If you'd like to see it in real life and compare the Forever Brilliant to the new Forever One Moissanite we'd be happy to show them to you! Zoran Designs is your Toronto area moissanite engagement rings jeweller.

When the sun hits just so... it's MAGIC.
Showcasing another recent custom project. This bespoke engagement ring features a beautiful princess cut centre and Ceylon blue sapphires along the shank. The splash of blue is perfectly fitting for this sculptural, wavy design. Designed for a girl that loves blue; so why not add blue sapphires to a ring she'll look at every day? Custom design let's you incorporate those personal touches and make a piece truly special and unique.
I love the clean, contemporary look of these custom wedding bands. I have to give credit to my client Jack, as he was the one who suggested the idea that HER band look like it was taken from HIS. It's a slightly different take on "matching" wedding bands and it turned out great. For the couple, the design is significant on many levels - both spiritually meaningful and a connection to their personal story. I'm so happy I could execute the concept to their liking. Reflecting personal elements in a beautiful manner; that is what custom jewellery design is all about. ~ Maja P.Kogut - Jewellery Designer
As the year draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making 2015 another fantastic year for Zoran Designs Jewellery. I had the pleasure to meet and get to know some truly wonderful people over the course of the year. Whether it was while working on custom jewellery design projects, during engagement ring or bridal jewellery consultations or simply while serving you in the store and helping you find the perfect gift for the occasion, it's the stories and connections (both in person and online) that make the moments meaningful and memorable. Jewellery marks special occasions and life's milestones (both big and small) and though it is a given for big purchases like engagement rings and wedding bands, smaller items can take on special meaning and sentimental value over the course of years as they become associated with a special person or special moments and ingrained in our memories. When you commission me to design a ring or when you purchase that pair of earrings as a graduation or birthday gift, I feel I am made a part of those special moments in your lives and it is a lovely feeling. So thank you for your new and continued business, for your referrals and of course thank you for letting Zoran Designs play a role in those special moments.
I hope 2015 was a happy and prosperous year for you all and may 2016 be even more so!
Maja Prvanovic-Kogut - Owner / Jewellery Designer @ Zoran Designs

Sharing some photos with you of Krista and Nate's GORGEOUS wedding. What a beautiful couple these two make! I was thrilled to receive these pictures and the lovely thank you note they sent me. It's truly a privilege to be able to take part in people's lives in this way and it is I who feels thankful for being entrusted at such a meaningful juncture. I wish these two a lifetime of wedded bliss.

Krista and Nate had some lovely things to say about their experience at Zoran Designs. Read the testimonial here.
I love how this recent custom design project turned out. I was commissioned to design a pair of HIS & HERS matching wedding bands. Both two tone gold but his in yellow/white combination and hers rose/white to match her engagement ring. The Celtic knot design is meaningful, beautiful, and timeless. Wedding bands can say more than "I'm taken". Custom made wedding rings give you the opportunity to make them personal; to tie into your own story and that is something truly special.
I fell in love with Michael Michaud's botanical nature jewellery several years ago and knew it would be a hit with my customers. It has been a popular choice for gifts due to the unique designs and budget friendly price points. Michael Michaud's botanical inspired collection is handcrafted by Silver Seasons, a New York studio specializing in this artisan jewellery line. The pieces are cast in bronze then hand painted with the collection's signature green patina. The green is a perfect neutral that suits most skin tones wonderfully. It's an earthy look but the designs have a fluid elegance that gives them both a dressy and casual quality. In short, the Michael Michaud - Silver Seasons collection is easy to love and easy to wear. And now it is available in our online shop. Have a gander here then head on over to the shop for pricing and details.
Recently completed this stunning custom made engagement ring for a fabulous couple. See it sparkle!
