  • There are not enough amazing things to say about this shop, their staff and designers! I have had two rings customized, purchased another two and just received my first necklace! This is my favorite company ON THE PLANET! Bianca and Madison are super responsive and just absolute angels! We have had video calls to go over designing custom pieces and their response through email is so quick! I lived in Chicago and fell in love with them and now living across the country, I am still a loyal customer! Thank you so much team! You are wonderful!

  • "This is an amazing place! Viviana was so nice and helpful! She made sure we got exactly we we wanted and were happy with every step of the experience. She helped us through the design process and made something truly beautiful and unique. I would recommend Adornment and Theory to anyone who is looking for jewelry for any occasion. Our engagement would not have been the same without this Experience! 10/10"

  • "I cannot say more AMAZING things about this place. The jewelry is unique and caters to every taste. Viv has items from independent artists that are bold, simple, dainty, conversation-starting and everything in between. It is the best place to find a sentimental gift for a special guy or gal in your life."

  • "I cannot gush enough about my love for Adornment + Theory. When my partner and I got engaged and married, I KNEW without a shadow of a doubt that I wanted to get custom diamond heirloom rings made by Viviana. She worked with me and my partner to use diamonds from both of our deceased mothers' rings and tweaked them in CAD til each of us was 10000000% satisfied with the engagement/wedding band designs. Adornment + Theory also engraved the insides of each of our rings with special symbols that mean something to both of us. You could tell the whole time they were entirely focused on what we wanted and not on making an upsell. My partner wanted to wear her mom's plain gold band, so they polished it up for us (instead of trying to sell us a new one). When the engravings came out different than we expected, they corrected the engravings quickly and at no additional charge to us. I saw my wedding band/crown for the first time on my wedding day and it absolutely took my breath away. I wish I could get married again just so I could work with the incredible team at Adornment + Theory. What a gem of a jewelry store!!!"
