WHAT COLLECTORS SAY...
I am in love with the bracelet made especially for me.
I am in love with the bracelet made especially for me by Vivian Saade Gartenberg. I drew a pattern on a piece of paper, and Vivian instantly understood what I wanted. She carefully measured to make it a perfectly fitting bangle. It is so comfortable, and so sturdy, that I never take it off. I live an active lifestyle and never worry about damaging my bracelet. Thank you to my hubby for gifting me this unique and precious heirloom. -MIRIAM K.
I am fascinated, in love, I just put it on and have no intention to take it off.
I have no words. I am fascinated, in love, I just put it on and have no intention to take it off. I love you, and really, the nicest thing about everything is the vibe, and making it with your heart. I adore you and admire you so much! I love your box, your packaging, your sticker. I thank you, you made me very, very happy. -MERY K.
Today I received one of the most meaningful pieces of jewelry to date.
Today I received one of the most meaningful pieces of jewelry to date. Upon my birth in early December my maternal grandmother gifted my mom with beautiful earrings, a ring, and a pin made out of turquoise, diamonds cast in gold. When I gave birth to my 1st born my mom gifted that exact set to me. Although I was so grateful for this generous gift and even wore it at my sons bar mitzvah it wasn’t exactly my style. So for many years these valuables pieces sat in my safe. Fast forward to 2019 my dear friend and Jewelry designer, Vivian Saade were discussing her latest projects. She shared with me her favorite commissions were repurposing clients handed down jewelry. I immediately made an appointment with her at her jewelry studio and started brainstorming together our vision for the 1st piece, the ring. So today as I await the birth of my 4th grandchild my ring arrived. I know that my beloved Nanny will be right there with me as I meet my new grandchild for the 1st time. -ELYSEÉ R.
The results is brilliant and now my daughter wears a legacy from both grandmothers.
Vivian was referred by a mutual friend, I thought how nice not to have to go into the city or be governed by a jewelers 9-5 hrs. Vivian lived nearby and was flexible when we would meet to discuss the design. Vivian’s creativity is a perfect match to any customer’s personalized intentions. I wanted earrings to give to my daughter for her college graduation. My daughter only like yellow gold, and only stud earrings . Vivian used diamonds from my husband’s mother and my mother to create the earrings, each earring is slightly different with the arrangement of different size and cuts of stones. The results is brilliant and now my daughter wears a legacy from both grandmothers. Very special and so beautiful. -TRACEY R.
Her designs are classic and minimal, yet substantial to hold and to wear.
When searching for a beautiful piece of jewelry that I can wear every day but still feel special, I turned to Vivian Saade. Her designs are classic and minimal, yet substantial to hold and to wear. I receive compliments all of the time on her pieces. Vivian has always had beautiful taste and her art has always appealed to me. Designing jewelry was an opportunity for me to own a piece of art that I can carry with me, and a piece of art that I know was created with intention. Vivian herself is full of love and peace. Her designs exemplify these qualities. -CELIA C.
Vivian listened to exactly what I wanted and created the most beautiful emerald studs with rose gold backing.
I have known Vivian since 1999 when we attended Parson School of Design together. She has always been a creative artist who isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. When I saw she was pursuing jewelry making, I knew I wanted her to design and create an heirloom piece for my daughter’s first birthday. Vivian listened to exactly what I wanted and created the most beautiful emerald studs with rose gold backing. Her attention to detail, communication and high quality precious stones where exactly what I wanted and received. Looking forward to collaborating with her again.-CATHERINE W.
Both the experience of working with Vivian and the finished product were top notch!
I asked Vivian to help me figure out a birthday gift for my husband. She came up with the idea of a wedding band. She designed a beautiful 18k gold ring with some very tasteful detail. We worked from one of his rings for size. Once I received it the size was off by a minor amount. She took it back. Stretched the ring. It was perfect. Both the experience of working with Vivian and the finished product were top notch! -RAE G.
Thank you. I cried all the way home. The dog is always with me in my heart , but I look down at my wrist and I feel like he is really with me even more. -TRACEY R.
I wanted an ID bracelet that would be understated, classic, yet still cool.
I was looking for a Bar Mitzvah present for my son to hold onto, and I decided that I wanted an ID bracelet that would be understated, classic, yet still cool. I turned to Vivian. Vivian designed a sleek, yet substantial ID bracelet with a leather band. Vivian enhanced this personal piece by engraving in the back my father's signature (who had passed, but will always be with us). Every time I see this piece on my son's wrist, I think of my father and the special day of my son's Bar Mitzvah. -CELIA C.
From talking to Vivian, I immediately had a feeling of trust and security and the only way to make it happen was to leave her with the ring and diamonds right then. Right there.
I had the pleasure of working one on one with Vivian Sade. I was ready to get married. I had received a gold ring and diamonds from Meghan’s mother, which was her grandmothers at one point. I had no idea what to do or where to start. I thought back to when I bought the only other piece of jewelry in my life from Jen at Blooming Lotus. She recommended a few names and Vivian was the first one I made contact with. We spoke via email, text, and phone and arranged a meet up in the city.
I met Vivian at a Starbucks on the Lower East Side. She walked in with a smile from ear to ear and I figured it had to be her. We exchanged hellos and quickly got down to business. Vivian showed me samples of some of her other work and I was impressed. I was really hoping for something unique, non traditional and something that would not get in the way of Meghan’s yoga teaching. She told me, great, if we do this, I can get the ring sometime in the coming weeks and make it happen within a month or two. Thats when I hit the brakes! I needed the ring in 16 days, before flying to Italy. From talking to Vivian, I immediately had a feeling of trust and security and the only way to make it happen was to leave her with the ring and diamonds right then. Right there. We discussed an estimate and then she tucked it away, we hugged and that was that.
Vivian kept me very involved in the process, sending me designs and layouts and the timeline of creation. The hardest part was doing all of this communication in secret, which she was totally on board with. About two weeks later, with four days to spare, I met up with Vivian again and she unveiled the ring. I was blown away. I have never seen anything like it and that was my goal. Vivian was extremely professional, yet personable and enthusiastic. The professional part is great, but it is the other characteristics that had me trusting her with a grandmother’s diamond wedding ring.
Meghan and I have received such genuine compliments since. One person saying it is in her top favorite wedding rings she had ever seen. It even has the words “SMILE” engraved in it. -JAMES C.
Vivian is a multi-talented artist who puts her heart and soul into every piece she creates.
I reached out to Vivian because I wanted to create something custom, more of a piece of art then a massed produced piece of jewelry. Vivian is a multi-talented artist who puts her heart and soul into every piece she creates. I especially appreciated her openness to collaboration throughout the process. You can be sure that when you work with her she will deliver a one of a kind work of art that you will cherish and be proud to wear for years to come. -MICHAEL A.
