We are a husband/wife team raising four kids, two dogs, and a jewelry business. 

Jerry's experience in the jewelry industry began twelve years ago while he was in college. He got a job at a retail jewelry store and his experience there convinced him not to become a dentist, but to pursue  a career in jewelry. After more than a decade learning the industry (including becoming a Graduate Gemologist), Jerry decided to venture out and fulfill a life-time dream of owning his own business. That's when Taylor Custom Rings was born. Since then, he's helped hundreds of customers create their dream ring.

When Jerry expressed interest in designing his own line of rings, Ashley took it as a challenge. She has expressed creativity in various ways at different times of life--drawing, writing, making music, raising children, and now, designing jewelry. The result is the designs that you see on this site. Her love of authentic beauty comes through in each piece. You can also sense the influence of her late grandmother, whose deep appreciation for natural beauty and quality materials made an early impression in Ashley's life.
