Christopher Rankin studied jewelry design under the tutelage of Van Cleef & Arpels head designer Robert Ahrens. Since that time, he has traveled extensively, bringing a broad diversity of influences to Christian Caine’s orignal bridal and fashion designs. He brings that same wealth of design experience to each custom project he works on. Left: Christopher on a recent trip to Capri, Italy
"A good designer brings more to the table than just a knowledge of the mechanics of jewelry manufacture; he or she also understands composition, balance, sculpture... even history. A jewelry designer is to a piece of jewelry what an architect is to a building. It's the architect that makes the difference between any random house and your dream home.” — Christopher Rankin
