Here's what our clients are saying about Porter Gulch:
"Wow, where to begin. I first met Brooke a few years ago through a work connection; I interviewed her about her jewelry business for my blog. I immediately fell for her simple yet unique settings and custom work across all pieces, from rings to earrings and more. Fast forward to summer 2017 when my original wedding and engagement rings were stolen -- feeling sad about losing the now-10-year-old set, I remembered loving Porter Gulch and I reached out to Brooke, contemplating a custom engagement ring and wedding band set. From the initial conversation, Brooke's attention to detail, ability to listen to ALL of my questions (I am a fine jewelry novice) and my waffling on decisions, and guidance throughout the process transformed what was originally a sad experience into one that was truly fun and exciting!! I worked with Brooke to find a gorgeous diamond through her contacts in San Francisco, and she was incredible at listening to exactly what we were looking to see and to spend to help us choose the perfect stone. Then, Brooke designed a custom yellow gold engagement ring halo setting and delicate infinity band with teeny, sparkling diamonds -- both enhanced the stunner of a center stone. She even worked with my husband to surprise me with the pair when they were done. And you should SEE THEM. OMG. Photos really don't do them justice, they are SO sparkly. They really are distractingly beautiful. I may even love them more than the originals for their timelessness and uniqueness. Thank you thank you Brooke; your work is exceptional, your service is unparalleled. 5/5, would work with you again. 😘💍✨."

"Working with Brooke on my bespoke wedding band was an absolute pleasure, from concept to finished product. I discovered Porter Gulch via a Pinterest post, and immediately reached out. As soon as I saw the pieces on the PG website, I knew that it was a place that could help me realize my vision. After digitally connecting with Brooke and sending her a few photos of the very unconventional wedding band I had in mind, she quickly sent me back a few different sketched ideas. I'm positive I could have been over the moon pleased with any of them-- every single one was stunning. Moving throughout the process with her-- from sketches, to CAD drawings, to 3D printed model, to the finalized band-- was nothing short of awe inspiring. She truly is an artist, and it's a pleasure not just to watch her work, but to participate. She kept me looped in and asked for my feedback every step of the way. After realizing that we would be flying into San Francisco for a Napa wedding over a holiday weekend, Brooke went above and beyond to hand deliver my band to me at a Sonoma winery. The entire process was so unbelievably special, and it means so very much to know how much love and care went into creating something that I will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you so much, Brooke."
Chelsea, Lexington, KY, Summer 2018
"My custom engagement ring is absolutely perfect. I came to Brooke with a number of styles I liked, which were (admittedly) all over the place, and she was so wonderful in helping me figure out what details were most important to me. The result is a ring that PERFECTLY suits my style and will, I'm sure, become a treasured family heirloom. I get so many compliments on it, and even though we've been engaged for a few months now, and I still can't stop looking at it!"
Lainey, Los Angeles, Summer 2018
"Brooke is such an amazing person and a very talented jeweler! I can't imagine going to anyone else. She made a custom engagement ring for my fiance and is currently working on my wedding band and I already know the finished product is going to be absolutely amazing. She is very knowledgable and really takes the time to get to know you to get exactly what you want. I've since referred friends, family, and everyone I know to Brooke and Porter Gulch because she does such great work and is so fun and easy to work with on any project. No question, I'll be calling on Brooke for all my future jewelry needs. Thank you Brooke!"
Justin, Los Angeles, Summer 2018
"This was an incredibly positive experience for me. I had no idea how to go about proposing to my partner. Everything seemed so complicated but the one piece of the puzzle that was easy was the engagement ring that I got through Brooke at Porter Gulch. Brooke was incredibly hands-on, helpful and creative while helping me navigate the perfect design for my fiance. I have been recommending her to others because my experience was so positive. I would hire Brooke again in a heartbeat but let's hope this is my only wedding!"
Sean, San Francisco, Spring 2018
"I went to Brooke with an unusual ring request: I wanted to re-do my engagement ring after being married for a few years. The original design was lovely, but it wasn't right for the stone my husband and I chose and I wanted something that let in more light. Working with a ring design I was fond of and images of an Art Deco drawing as inspiration, Brooke was able to translate my dream and vision into a stunning ring. I love it!"
Emily, San Francisco, Spring 2018
"We had the most wonderful experience working with Brooke to design and create my 20th anniversary ring. She was calm and patient as she went over each of the different stone and setting styles that I was interested in considering. At all stages of the process, she gave us several options and made sure we were choosing the ring that would be the right fit for me. The entire experience was pleasant and easy. I LOVE the ring, its simply perfection. We love supporting small businesses especially those that go out of their way to give you a unique and positive experience. I look forward to working with Brooke again in the future."
Marcy & Tom, Danville, Spring 2018
"Brooke is a delight to work with. She is so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and skilled at what she does. She redesigned my engagement ring and wedding band, and updated the materials from white gold to platinum. She was responsive and helpful in deciding on a new design, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I've already recommended Porter Gulch to friends and I can't wait for the next time I get to purchase some of Brooke's beautiful jewelry."
Megan, San Rafael, Fall 2017
"I came to Brooke with a blank slate, knowing only that I wanted to work with her to create something special for my wife. The only thing comparable to the quality of Brooke's work is her taste. She designed and laid out several beautiful options, any of which would've been amazing. We decided together on the most perfect diamond eternity ring, and my wife and I could not be happier with the end result."
Sean, San Francisco, Summer 2017
"Brooke was a pleasure to work with. Responsive, thoughtful and timely. She made great suggestions that my wife ended up loving. Both pieces she worked on were beautiful and of the highest quality. I'm looking forward to working with her again."
Andrew, New York City, Summer 2017
"It was such a joy working with Brooke designing my ring. I had followed her work for several years and knew when it came time to getting engaged, I would want her to design my ring. It was so special having a ring made by someone so passionate, intentional, creative, and so kind! She responsibly sources her diamonds and uses high quality gems. Did I mention that I LOVE my engagement ring? I get compliments everywhere I go. I look forward to designing our wedding bands over the next year."
Heidi, Phoenix, AZ, Spring 2017
"It was an exceptional experience working with Brooke! Actually I did not work with her, my husband did; I was just the incredibly lucky recipient of two beautiful rings! Brooke reset a family diamond in such a gorgeous setting. It highlighted the diamond in a way the original setting never did. And to go with it she designed a beautiful sapphire band that is exactly what I had pictured. They're flawless together! I love them and will definitely return to Porter Gulch for more jewelry in the future!"
Julia, San Rafael, CA, Winter 2016
"Brooke made my engagement ring, wedding bands for my husband and I, and also completed two custom design projects for my wedding jewelry: resetting my diamond studs and creating perfectly simple gold chain necklaces. Every piece I own from Porter Gulch is stunning, sturdy, and unique. I also love how versatile each piece is. I wear my Porter Gulch jewelry everyday but also on the days I get dressed up. They make every outfit more beautiful."
Kate, San Francisco, Fall 2016
"I love Porter Gulch! Brooke provides amazing service--she made each piece of jewelry just for me. She helped me choose a small tag ring for a gift to my sisters, and she found a perfect stone when I wanted a nontraditional wedding ring. Love the styles of Porter Gulch, and also how much intention goes into the people. Thanks Brooke!"
Diana, New Orleans, Fall 2016
"Brooke was absolutely incredible to work with. She was not only able to take my vision and turn it into something amazing, but also helped coach me through shipping family diamonds and making sure everything was insured and cared for. I could not recommend her enough. If you're getting engaged and want to create something totally unique, work with Porter Gulch."
Sam, Los Angeles, Spring 2016
"Brooke took an old diamond and sapphire pin of my grandmothers and gave it new life as matching stacking rings for my sister and I. She makes the most beautiful modern jewelry and is super helpful throughout the design process. I love my new rings and have already used her for several other custom pieces. Can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her to anyone!"
Liz, Ridgewood, NJ, Spring 2016
"My husband commissioned Brooke to design a pair of diamond earrings I could wear everyday. They are so elegant and beautiful in their simplicity and I feel special every time I wear them. I would never have thought that custom diamonds could be "affordable" but they are and Brooke delivered on every count."
Tracy, Kansas City, MO, Spring 2016
"Brooke was great to work with! We designed a custom engagement ring, selected just the right diamonds, and it came out amazing."
Jordan, San Francisco, Spring 2015
"Brooke, made the Betty Ring for me with three stunning, pink sapphires and it is just beautiful. Another lovely piece from Brooke and her attention to what I am looking for is incredible. I adore her jewelry and am so honored to own several pieces. Thank you Brooke!"
