Ian & Noelle Austin, Texas Engaged July 2020 | Married November 2021 Oval Diamond Cluster Halo Engagement Ring & 14K Rose & Diamond Wedding Band Nicole Mera Style: NM-1180SP “Thank you from both of us. The ring is stunning, chic, and subtle; the perfect blend I wanted. The wording came out really well. It’s everything I imagined… Both pieces are quality and fabulous. On every occasion we get compliments on the ring: airport, shopping, bars you name it. I give a friendly smirk but, I already know I did well. We will definitely be in-touch. Thanks for making this process so enjoyable.” – Ian Rachel & Jorge Galveston, TX Engaged May 2021 Custom Hexagon Montana Teal Sapphire Solitaire “I cannot express to you how gorgeous the engagement ring turned out, and how wonderful it feels to be engaged to my love, with this stunning piece on my hand! Jorge and I are beyond thrilled to have worked with you and created something so unique and breathtaking, and we can’t recommend you enough! Our hearts are full as we step forward to planning a wedding. We could not be more grateful for all of your help, communication, and the efforts you went to to make our experience enjoyable, and so personal, even with Jorge being out at sea. Still just in love with all the tiny details that went into this piece. Thank you again.” – Rachel Callie & Coleman Austin, Texas Engaged March 2020 Radiant Cut Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring with a matching Fancy French Pave Diamond Wedding Band Nicole Mera Style: NM-11263 “Working with Nikki was so fantastic. She was always available to talk as we crafted a custom engagement ring and provided me with the best options. She wasn’t afraid to ever voice her opinion (which is so crucial as the guy buying the ring and learning about the process while in it!!) and her guidance was invaluable. The ring turned out amazing and my fiancé gets complimented on it constantly. Thank you Nikki!” – Coleman Carla & Drew San Antonio, TX Engaged 2019 | Married October 2019 Custom Baguette Diamond Ring for their Colombian Emerald that was purchased on a trip to Bogota, Colombia “We are SO happy we chose Nicole Mera to create a custom ring for us. We wanted to create a ring for a loose emerald we found and purchased in Bogota. We knew we had to find a jeweler with the right experience and care that is required for setting emeralds. We could not have made a better choice. Nikki was so knowledgeable and really helped guide us through finding the right design that spoke to us. She worked with us patiently and made the process so exciting. Even when we had hesitations on sizing or look, she could picture it mentally and helped walk us through it, the end result was incredible. Her customer service is excellent! She even accommodated our request for pictures throughout the process of making the ring, which is so special for us. She has my trust for any future purchases. I highly recommend Nicole Mera for any custom pieces and can definitely say I will be a returning customer.” – Carla Monica & Chris Austin, Texas Engaged June 2018 | Married November 2018 Round Brilliant Diamond & Cushion Halo Ring “My fiancé and I lived in Dallas and spent Christmas in San Antonio visiting family this past year. From our first meeting in San Antonio with Nikki on Christmas Eve to the engagement at the Four Seasons in Austin, Texas just last week, Nikki was punctual, professional and an incredibly caring person who was looking to create the perfect ring for my fiancé. She worked with us at our initial consultation and then with me exclusively up to the surprise proposal. Nikki walked me through the design aspect, the intricacies of selecting the diamond and every personalized customization we came up with. Everything from a one of a kind diamond, a halo diamond with surrounding diamond details, to the signature yellow diamond on the inside of the band, and even a very special personalized engraving. I would recommend Nikki to any friend or family member who is looking to design and create an incredible ring that is truly one of a kind. She is compassionate, detailed and an incredibly talented gemologist and designer.” – Chris Jamie & Jimmy Encino, CA Engaged September 2016 | Married October 2017 Round Brilliant Diamond in a Tapered Diamond Shank Nicole Mera Style #: NM-1137 “I am so glad we chose Nicole Mera to design and make our engagement ring and wedding bands. From beginning to end, Nikki made our jewelry purchases easy and fun. First, she spent a lot of time finding the perfect diamond for us while staying within our budget. Then she worked with us to design the perfect engagement ring. We couldn’t be happier with the final result; the ring is even better than we could have imagined. Nikki was very patient, informative, and thorough during the entire process. I appreciate all of the knowledge I have gained about fine metals and diamonds. Thanks for everything, Nikki!” – Jimmy Claire & Easton San Antonio, Texas Engaged July 2017 | Married September 2018 Emerald Cut & Tapered Baguette Three Stone Ring Ring – Nicole Mera Style #: NM-T-11EC “Picking out an engagement ring for the first time can be intimidating. However, Nikki is super helpful and detailed regarding everything in the process. She is so knowledgeable about diamonds and taught me so much along the way. I came to her with some ideas and she helped me narrow it down and created the perfect ring for my fiancè. She made the entire process seamless and easy. I couldn’t have done it without her.” – Easton Lauren & Dave Laguna Beach, CA Engaged June 2017 | Married October 2018 Round Brilliant Diamond in a Classic Nicole Mera Solitaire Nicole Mera Style #: NM-11263 “When it came time for the important purchase of an engagement ring, I knew I needed someone that could not only create a beautiful piece of jewelry, but also someone I could trust. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted when I called Nikki with my initial request, but she helped me make it better. That is what Nicole Mera brings to the table, she can design something from scratch or take you idea and help you perfect it. She helped me design the perfect ring, under my budget, and on time. Thanks, Nikki!” – Dave Gina & Alex New York, NY Engaged April 2017 | Married April 2018 Round Brilliant in a Bold Halo Two-Tone Design Ring – Nicole Mera Style #: NM-1111B “It was a daunting task, trying to find the perfect ring, especially when I knew absolutely nothing about them. I turned to Nikki for help and she was perfectly accommodating. She helped me understand everything about the diamond, making sure I was picking the right one, then walked me though each part of the ring creation; the design, the setting, the engravings. The personalization and detail put in by Nikki was unparalleled – I knew she was making a ring with me rather than for me. When the ring arrived, I was floored. It was breathtaking. I almost threw away the surprise proposal plan because I wanted to propose that night. I could not imagine another day without this ring being on Gina’s finger, but I held on for a few days. That weekend when I proposed, the expression on Gina’s face was everything. Nikki helped me capture all the emotions I dreamed of by crafting a beautiful ring. The eye-opening, jaw dropping facial expressions on those that see her ring says it all. Gina and I could not be happier and can’t imagine anyone doing it better. The ring is a perfect symbol of our love and is absolutely priceless to us.” – Alex (Photo Credits: Shannon M. West) Aly & Drew Los Angeles, CA Engaged July 2016 | Married July 2017 Round Brilliant Diamond in a Classic Round Halo Design Nicole Mera Style #: NM-1106 “Although it’s typical for a groom to take their fiancé-to-be shopping for a ring, I truly wanted my proposal to be a surprise – that left me on my own for ring selection. Without Nikki’s knowledge and great eye, I wouldn’t have stood a chance. Knowing I wanted a round diamond, Nikki showed me more ideas than I even knew existed. Ultimately, by combining a few elements of the most beautiful designs, Nikki came up with an absolutely stunning halo ring that floored my fiancé. To this day, the ring gets flattering comments everywhere we go – even strangers! We couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Nikki!” – Drew Alicia & Ian San Antonio, TX Engaged March 2015 | Married October 2015 Oval Shape Diamond set in diamond solitaire with a diamond crown Ring – Nicole Mera Style #: NM-11263 Wedding Band – Nicole Mera Style #: NM-22307 “My sweet now-husband followed my queue and proposed with a solitaire oval diamond on a dainty band. However, at that time neither him or I knew anything about settings, mountings, or quality eternity bands. Luckily, Nikki knows everything about quality jewelry and patiently walked us through every option to meet the ultimate look I wanted to achieve. Nikki reset and redesigned my engagement ring around my beloved solitaire on a brilliant eternity band, and I’ll never forget how my husband and I were both blown away when we pulled the final product out of the shipping box when we received the redesigned engagement ring and my eternity wedding band. The center stone of the engagement ring looked twice as large as it had before! There was genuinely a moment where we questioned whether the stone was the same because it looked brighter and bigger. Nikki’s vision and unbeatable craftsmanship elevated my engagement ring to a level I never knew existed. Our only regret is that we didn’t start the process with Nikki first. I had so much fun working on my rings with Nikki that I commissioned her to create an eternity band for my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday present with her kids names inscribed inside. Needless to say my mother-in-law was moved to tears, and we both proudly receive compliments on behalf of Nikki’s work.’ – Alicia (Photo Credit: Koby Brown) Rainy E. San Antonio, TX Rainy used her Mother’s Round Brilliant Diamond set in Nicole Mera’s Double Row Asscher Cut Diamond Solitaire and paired it with a custom Bold Diamond Asscher Cut Band “When I decided to remake my wedding rings, I chose to work with Nikki at Nicole Mera. I selected on of her designs using asscher cut diamonds and used my mother’s round diamond for the center. I searched and searched the internet for ideas but her design was a one-of-a-kind design. I LOVE the finished ring, in fact, so much that I had her make me a wedding band also using asscher cut diamonds. The quality, sparkle, and design of the rings exceeded my expectations. They’re just stunning. And, the best part was the trust and confidence I had in Nikki in working with her from start to finish!!! It can be an emotional choice to change up the rings you’ve worn for years but with Nikki’s assistance and excellent taste in jewelry, it never made me look back at the old setting. She is extremely talented, highly professional, and totally reliable. I can’t say enough good things about her and her work.” – Rainy Julie & Zach Ponte Vedra Beach, FL Engaged December 2015 / Married September 2017 Round Brilliant Diamond in a 18K Yellow Solitaire Nicole Mera Style #: NM-11263 “We placed a custom order with Nikki for our engagement ring and it was the best decision we could have made! Nikki was very helpful in choosing our diamond and the classic setting that Julie wanted (gold of course!) Nikki is extremely knowledgeable and patiently walked me through every step of the process of designing the most beautiful engagement ring. We enjoyed working with Nikki so much we also designed a custom necklace honoring our first daughter, Locke. Nikki is the real deal, and she will work with you to make your vision become a sparkly reality!” – Zach Brianne L. Seattle, WA Brianne used her great grandmother’s diamond and three diamonds from her original engagement ring from her husband, and selected one new diamond to create a custom five stone halo band. Nicole Mera Style #: NM-22242 “My ring arrived. It’s just so perfect in every way. My ring fits perfectly and the size of it is so perfect on my hand. Peter (my husband) loves it too which really means a lot to me!! Thank you so much Nikki. This was just a joyous process i’ll remember forever.” – Brianne Share Your Testimonial!
