New Orthodox Cross For Russian, Greek, Serbian, or Ukrainian Baptisms

We've added a new Orthodox cross pendant to our online shop. It's an adult size version of our small die struck St. Olga cross. Similar to our cast and hand finished Saint Olga Orthodox crosses but lighter in weight and hence more affordable than our other larger versions. 

Russian, Greek and Ukrainian Orthodox crosses

This is a classic Orthodox cross design that is often worn by Russians, Greeks, Serbs, and Ukrainians. It makes a beautiful gift for an Orthodox Baptism. This Orthodox cross pendant is available in solid 14K yellow or white gold.

We take great pride in providing high quality product and service and our customers take notice of that.  The feedback for our Orthodox cross pendants has been exceptional and we thank all of our customers who take a moment to submit a review. Here are some recent reviews from people who purchased one of our gold Orthodox crosses, whether for a Baptism or as a general gift.

Unique Men's Wedding Band with Greek Cross and Rustic Design

This unique men's wedding ring was a recent custom design project for a Greek gent.  Made in two tone 18K gold, it includes personalized symbols meaningful to the client and features a distressed finish. Girls usually get all the fun where engagement rings and wedding bands are concerned so it's a treat when I get to design an unusual men's wedding band. This one has a continuous design that's different from every angle. View the video below for the full 360. 

St. Andrew Orthodox Cross Pendants

St. Andrew style Orthodox crosses have been added to our online shop. These Orthodox cross pendants are available in three sizes and can be purchased in 14K yellow or white gold.

Thank you from Zoran Designs Jewellery

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!

Sincerely,
Maja Prvanovic-Kogut - Owner / Jewellery Designer @ Zoran Designs

Reunited with DAISY

As a jewellery designer it is always a pleasure to see your creations again. Especially when they are being worn and loved by their owners. I had just such an experience this weekend; I was reunited with Daisy. I designed this ring several years ago, not as a commissioned piece but because I had a loose pink sapphire that deserved a home. The gem was very pretty with a lovely pink colour and when the flower idea came to mind I thought it was quite fitting. Anyhow, Daisy didn't stay in the store for too long, the combination of pink sapphire centre, pave diamond flower petals and a combination white and rose gold setting were rather fetching. She quickly caught the eye of one of my regular customers. Several visits and a hint-drop-to-hubby later she was gone to her new home. This past weekend I ran into the lovely lady who fell in love with Daisy and was thrilled to see her wearing the ring. She was kind enough to let me take a few creative shots. Here's Daisy in all her glory.
