In the Spotlight with Maggi Simpkins

Maggi Simpkins @maggisimpkins is a Los Angeles-based fine jewelry designer specializing in one of a kind engagement rings. Maggi's work is narrative-driven. Her thoughtful designs emerge through the collaborative process of listening to, learning from, and engaging with her clients. Their love stories become one-of-a-kind pieces that are expressive, timeless, and as unique as the people who will wear them. Her work is informed, from concept to completion, by the highest levels of quality, integrity, and craftsmanship. Every piece is handcrafted in Los Angeles.

To raise funds for the Black Lives Matter movement, Maggi is raffling an incredible, bespoke salt and pepper diamond ring on her website www.maggisimpkins.com. We are proud that we can share our platform with Maggi, not only able to amplify her work, but also raise awareness for her raffle during this critical time.

From Maggi:

In the midst of everything going on right now- I wanted to use my talents/gifts/resources/platform to help fight injustice, inspire others to do the same, and provide a lucky someone with a little beauty in their life-- the best way I know how. I teamed up with @misfitdiamonds who generously donated the center stone - and together we're hoping to help inspire a little change. #jewelryforchange .

This one of a kind ring features a rose cut salt and pepper diamond, flanked by white baguette side diamonds set in solid 14k yellow gold. She is quite elegant and sits super low profile on the finger ($6200 retail value).

Raffle tickets are officially live, they're available on my site, and they are only $25 per entry- there is no limit on the number of entries. I wanted to make this raffle accessible for everyone to participate. Ticket sales will close 6/16 at 6pm PST and the winner will be announced 6/19 at 12 noon PST.

100% OF THE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO BLACK LIVES MATTER.
