I was looking for a jewelry designer who could set my large marquise opal into a unique gold ring. The stone is of tremendous sentimental value, so the design had to be perfect. After meeting with 2 other designers that I had no interest in working with, I found Harout. Within just 5 minutes of talking with him, I knew he would be the one to make my ring. Harout is professional, patient, talented, and a gentleman. He ""got"" what I was trying to describe, offered me his expert suggestions, and went to work on my ring. In 2 weeks, he completed my opal ring, and it was even more gorgeous and special than I anticipated. I wear it every day, and I have gotten so many compliments on it. It is striking. I cannot say enough about Harout .. I am thankful to him! I highly recommend Mouradian to everyone!
