Ray Griffiths enduring love for the craft of making fine jewelry spans more than forty years, and it’s been his constant companion while creating fabulous jewelry for his avid fans.
Griffiths connected to art in jewelry from at an early age, which set his feet on a life long journey that started in his native Melbourne, Australia and later planted him in the heart of New York City.
Spending weekends assisting his shoemaker father as a child shaped his fascination for craftsmanship and attention to detail. Fuelled by a love of gemstones and jewels from an early age, Ray studied the art of restoration under master jewelers whilst still a teenager, he then went on to obtain degrees in Gemology and Diamond Technology. A very successful career as partner and head designer for Sydney’s premier jewelry store in the 80s and 90s followed until the call to New York could no longer be ignored. From then Ray has called the city that never sleeps his home.
Beyond doubt, jewelry is Ray Griffiths’ love language. He showers people with love when he bestows a piece of his jewelry, and offers people a means to express love when he creates it.
