Love Story

Metier is all about commitment. We love helping couples find jewelry that symbolizes their relationships and relates to who they are. We understand that, more often than not, several rings need to be tried on before the right one(s) calls out. Thankfully, the lines of tradition have been blurred leaving modern day ring-seekers with a bevy of choices. From contemporary rings with opulently colored stones to detailed antiques with a sense of history, the only rule we encourage is to search for jewelry that truly speaks to you. Whatever the case, we’re always excited to lend our time and expertise. Read on for some of our current knot tie-ing favorites for the commitment bound.

Throughout history, a ring as a never-ending circle, symbolized eternity and the everlasting love between a two people. The open space inside the circle was considered to be a gateway or a door; leading to things and events, known and unknown, that as a couple you would experience together. Rings were made from noble metals—gold, silver, platinum—to symbolize the steadfastness of the relationship. To give a ring signified deep love and a union of the hearts.
