Sophia~ Thank you so much for helping us out. It really was a pleasure to meet you. I know this was something really small but atleast now I know a jeweler who does things like and will keep you in mind for future use and spread the word about you. Again, we appreciate you helping us out! Much Mahalos!

After I picked up the pendants from you that day, I went straight to my sister's house so she could see them.  Kat was also very happy with how the pendants turned out.  Until you shared your ideas and thoughts, I could not even imagine such creations. 

Our nieces haven't seen them yet.  With this pandemic, everyone is teleworking and distancing.  Janell lives in Washington state so I'm not sure when we'll see her.  She also postponed her wedding from April to September of next year hoping things will be better by then.  I can't wait for them to see the pendants!  They are beautiful pieces and to know they came from their grandmother's wedding rings I know will make them cry

I met Sophia through my best friend, who he highly recommended and Praised! My best friend who was also my best man had his ring made and customized by Sophia. She did such a great job with my friend's fiancee's ring, so it was only natural for him to refer me to Sophia. I must say, although I did visit other jewelry and wedding ring stores, Sophia's expertise and personal style of customization rings is what impressed me the most and that is something you usually don't see in a lot of jewelry stores. Sophia's ability to customize a ring and make it more personal with subtle details is what made it so special and unique for my fiance, and now wife. She was able to gather my thoughts and ideas and turn it into a ring that reminds me and my wife of our love story and what it represents.

Thanks, Jonathan R.

Sophia... THANK YOU SO MUCH for the great recommendations and support in finding that perfect gift for our 5 year anniversary! Your expertise made me feel so comfortable and my wife couldn't be happier!

I remember it started around last year (2016) August when I began my search for the ring. Throughout the months I visited many of the local jewelry shops and though they had a huge selection of good looking ones nothing really stood out and said "WOW!" Shortly after, I was introduced to you by my sister and let me say meeting you was a blessing... I didn't think it was possible to get a customize ring these days. A lot of times people go to other jewelry stores and think they are getting everything they want in that ring but are usually settling. But not at Makaimoku Fine Jewelry. With your help it is truly possible to get everything I knew my love would desire in her ring. The ring was so perfectly made that even the band symbolizes our tattoos that her and I share. Which always makes a great story whenever someone asks us why it's shaped that way.

**Thank you again from the both of us. You really made our dreams come true. We will be in touch when it comes time for the wedding band.

I met Sophia nearly 10 years ago at a bridal expo. Her enthusiasm and down to earth personality made me instantly feel comfortable and want to be her friend. So much so, that when I found out she had left a former employer where our engagement and wedding bands were purchased, I searched for her on Facebook so we could still connect. 

These days I will only use her for all of our ring purchases and needs, the only pieces of jewelry that I use on daily basis. The only downside to Sophia for me is that we don't live closer, so we (and now our babies) don't get to hang out.

We went in to see Sophia, a close friend of ours, who is great at what she does.  She asked us some general questions to gauge my taste and before I knew it, I was being educated on all things diamond!  I really had no idea what I was looking for...let alone that there are so many important factors to think about when choosing a stone.  Next comes cost.  Let's be realistic.  I definitely didn't want something that would mean no travelling and cup of noodle for the rest of the year...and we were very candid in making mention of this.  What was great about this is that she understood.  No judging looks.  Not so much as a flinch.  She simply asked what our range was and proceeded to show us some amazing diamonds.

She offered to let me try on a few styles and once I leaned toward a certain cut she brought out a few loose diamonds for us to take a look at.  I have to admit, I was very nervous in handling them but she was patient through the process and encouraged me to take a closer look through the scope.  After I finally committed to one (trust me, it's a lot harder than you think when you consider that it will be on your finger FOREVER), I think she sensed a bit of how overwhelmed I was.  After that decision I was in no condition to think about settings!!  She suggested holding off on the setting and mounting it as a solitaire for now.  This would give me some time to think about different styles and more importantly, to get used to functioning with a ring on my finger.  She was right!  I've been a proud fiance for only a week now but there's a noticeable difference in how I function with a ring on my finger (reaching in my purse, washing the dishes, etc.)  

Next setting!  And you can bet that I will be back to see Sophia for guidance on that!
