Michael M: The Luxury Jewelry Designer You Need to Know
January 1st, 2020
Michael M. has only been around since 2008, but the brand’s craftsmanship and eye for trend-setting designs has already cemented it as a favorite among brides and fashionistas alike. Based in Los Angeles, Michael M. designs evoke sophistication and elegance and are known for putting a modern spin on timeless classics.
Engagement Rings from Around the World
Michael M.’s handcrafted engagement rings are designed for everyday wear, with styles that make brides-to-be feel special and singular. The brand’s unique under stone polishing—polishing a stone before it’s set—allows more light to reflect up through the top of the diamond. Their exclusive U-shaped settings embrace the edges of the diamond and make the stone viewable from every possible angle.
As a nod to Europe’s classic style, the Europa collection incorporates a Euro-style shaft that ups the band’s comfort on the finger and has a more classic look compared to other collections such as the Strata and Crown.
The Strada, Italian for road, collection features channel-set diamond shanks and elaborate scroll work. And the Crown collection boasts “hidden halos” of delicate diamond ribbons below the center stone. A modern take on the classic halo setting, the placement of diamonds creates a crown for the center stone. Simply magnificent.
Wedding Bands for Every Style
Several of Michael M.’s collections include both engagement and bridal jewelry (the Europa, for example), with styles for every personality and individual sense of style. But the Princess and Stella collections are two standout lines for wedding bands.
The Stella collection features some weightier shafts with cool twists on prongs, like unexpected pear shapes. And the Princess collection is just what it sounds like: ultra-romantic micro-pave work, milgrain detailing, side stones cascading down from the center stone.
Of course, any legit jewelry brand from LA should have some pretty spectacular fashion jewelry and Michael M. certainly delivers. Earrings, rings, necklaces, all of them exuding that classic California cool veiled in effortless sophistication.
The Double bar diamond block eternity ring is an especially gorgeous example of a subtle statement ring, while the diamond open-v ring is more fitting for the desirable stacked look. The same goes for loads of the brand’s earrings, which include chic studs, beautiful drop, and linear options.
