Interview with Engagement Ring Designer Jay Gilbert of Coast Diamond

One of my favorite perks working here at Robbins Brothers is meeting the designers who create extraordinary engagement rings. I recently had the opportunity to interview Jay Gilbert, founder and chief designer at Coast Diamond based right here in Los Angeles. Jay is one of the most genuine and kind people I’ve ever met and when he visits our stores he just lights up the place with his friendly personality and passion for bridal jewelry.

Check out this recent interview to see what inspires Jay and watch the process of how his unique engagement ring designs are created from concept stage to finished product:

If you’re in the San Diego area September 13th or 14th be sure to stop by Robbins Brothers on Friars Road to see the extended Coast Diamond line at our exclusive designer engagement ring trunk show. The Coast rep will have many of Jay’s one-of-a-kind engagement rings for you to try on as you sip complimentary champagne!
