10 STARS. Linda designed and them made 2 gold wrist bangles for my bride of 50 years..TODAY. And to say they are perfect, spectacular, awesome doesn’t do these beauties justice. A great experience all around and they are beautiful!!
5 Star review! I had an amazing experience at Christine Marguerite Designs! I commissioned a custom ring with a family heirloom and was blown away when it was brought to life! Linda is a visionary as a designer and an exceptional collaborator with the creative process. Highly recommend!


Linda is amazing! Her design ideas, personal connection, and attention to detail are unmatched. If you want to create something of your own that will last lifetimes, while being guided by an incredible artist and true professional, all while spending money in the local community, you’ve found the right place.  Bill W.

Beautiful work and a truly unique experience. Wonderful to know such artistry exists in Boulder!

I highly recommend Christine Marguerite Designs in Boulder if anyone needs custom jewelry, repairs, diamonds, ring tune ups, and jewelry needs…Linda Kozloff-Turner has immense experience and huge design skills. She makes your ideas into reality!

Linda took EVERY measure to make sure my ring was perfect — She worked with my fiance to fulfill every detail of his dream design for my engagement ring. Not to mention she went above any beyond to find the fit for my finger, which happens to be some weird fraction between normal ring sizes. She truly cares about her clients and her art. Would recommend for anyone looking for a fine jeweler in the Boulder area!

I don’t know if I’ve had anyone take such good care of me! My fiance’ bought my amazing engagement ring from this shop and they were able to work with us to make sure it fit perfectly and that the stone remained secure. We worked together to design my wedding band – this amazing couple developed multiple designs for us to choose from with my input, and the final product is just incredible. The deal we got for the value of the stones and hand-placed quality was extremely impressive. The couple who runs this shop are so passionate about what they do and are also just plain cool to hang out and chat with! They were there for us every step of the way.

Linda is not only a skilled and creative designer her empathy and interest are exceedingly rare. She even cried when I shared the story behind my diamond! It was a 95 year-old diamond from my great grandmother embedded in an old ring that I wanted to serve as centerpiece of my fiancé’s engagement ring. It involved a complicated and delicate procedure that Linda handled without a hitch. I could not have been more satisfied.

My fiancee and I stumbled into Linda’s prior location (further East on Pearl Street) after spending a couple hours wandering between other jewelry shops on East Pearl. We were looking for someone who could design an engagement ring / matching wedding band for a diamond that my fiance had received as a gift from her aunt. Everyone else wanted to sell us rings they already had. When we came in and met with Linda she focused in on exactly what we wanted, helped us rough out a design, and gave us a firm, fair quote. She was communicative with us throughout the process, which was completed in what I considered a very reasonable time frame. My fiance is very pleased with both the design and quality of her rings, and I’m pleased to have paid a fair price for them. I look forward to seeing Linda every 90 days for our complementary quarterly cleaning / inspections. Thanks, Linda!

“Personal, elegant, and beautiful… Linda took everything into consideration when designing my unique engagement ring! You’ll get exactly what you want and more here”!

“Linda did an amazing job with my engagement ring and the matching wedding bands. She has exceptional attention to detail, and knows what will work with jewelry design. We fully trusted Linda to deliver an exceptional product, and the final pieces of jewelry were absolutely stunning. I would recommend Linda to anyone looking for custom and brilliantly designed pieces”.


Nelsa Estrella

Start with the ring. The piece is exquisite. My fiance, her family and our friends are all enthralled. It has gravity, which is what I’d hoped for when I began researching engagement rings nearly a year ago.

Next, Linda and her family. She helped me refine my thoughts. She guided me to finding the right stone and band design. Then, as one person to another, gave me a fair price. No corporate nonsense. No pushy sales. Just good people delivering a wonderful piece of art. I highly suggest walking into her new store, having a chat, and learning more about how the family can help you find jewelry with gravity for the people you care about.


Jace Wirth

Linda did a fabulous job, from design to execution, to create a treasured piece for my wife and me to enjoy for a lifetime!

John Tayer


I cannot describe how happy I am with the engagement ring my fiance and I designed with Linda. She knew exactly what we wanted and I was breathless when I was able to pick it up in store. She’s an amazing designer and we are going back to her for our wedding bands since it was a simple and painless process and the outcome is amazing. Best designer in Boulder!

Sara Haynie


Linda and the entire staff at CMD thank you for taking such care of my engagement ring and family heirlooms. Your thoughtfulness and input in how they should be rebuilt mean everything! and every time I look at them I think of you and how glad I am that I made the trip to Colorado and put them in your thrusworthy hands rather than roll the dice!! Words can’t thank you enough and count on seeing me with other treasures to repair next time in I am in town.
All the best,



My now fiancé went in to Christine Marguerite a few months ago to design my engagement ring.  He was armed with a few ideas I had given him off of Pinterest, which according to him were all over the map as far as what style I liked. Linda was able to take those few ideas and create exactly what I had envisioned with out any input from me. My fiancé said Linda was amazing to work with and made the whole process fun and easy for him. We will definitely be back to design our wedding bands with Linda!

Christine did an AMAZING job on my wedding ring design from start to finish. She was very nice to work with as well. When I came in and showed her my engagement ring, she started giving me ideas right away. I already had some thoughts going in, and it was great to hear she had similar thoughts but better. She gave me a great price and 2 weeks later Christine gave me a beautiful shadow wedding band! Definitely work with her if you want a great design and ring!

I found Christine Marguerite when I was looking for a place to design a custom ring for my mom. I had bought an opal in Australia, and wanted it set into a ring with two little hearts on the side of the stone. Linda worked with me until we got the design just perfect. The ring came out even more beautiful in real life than I had envisioned! So when I got engaged, I told my sweetheart that I already knew which place we HAD to buy our rings from. He told me that he had to go with HIS jeweler that he knew, because it was the best one. Well, long story short, we had the same jeweler in mind – Christine Marguerite! 🙂 We custom designed my engagement ring and our wedding rings there. I couldn’t be happier with the result. Thanks again, Linda and Tom!

When I first got engaged my husband and I decided to go to one of the standard big box stores and found out a year later that all my stones were not real, even though I was told otherwise. I was so disappointed and wanted a new ring made. We found Christine Marguerite Designs and it was a great experience. She listened to what we wanted gave us feed back and designed the most beautiful ring I could of ever dreamed of. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of getting a custom design for themselves. The best part was she kept it in our budget, and it turned out amazing!


Linda did an amazing job on my engagement ring, wedding band, and my husband’s wedding band as well! I had a specific design and budget in mind for my engagement ring, I described it to Linda, and she created perfectly and within my budget. She made my wedding band to go with my engagement ring and it matches wonderfully. My husband also wanted a somewhat unique ring, and Linda helped us find a wood inlaid ring for him too. We couldn’t be happier with our rings and we highly recommend Christine Marguerite Designs to everyone.

“I recently commissioned a specialty piece with Christine Marguerite and can say that from start to finish, Linda and her staff were extremely attentive and willing to help. From our initial meeting, Linda and her team worked diligently to meet my tight project timeline. In only a day or two following our first conversation I had a few high quality renderings that accurately represented the look of the finished product. With my approval, the fabrication team went to work and produced a beautiful piece within a few weeks.
In the end, I ended up with a lovely piece that was produced on time and on budget. Thanks, Linda, for making the process enjoyable and stress free. Best of all, the recipient of your beautiful piece loved it, which of course made all the effort worthwhile.”
Natali and I continue to marvel at the design, craftsmanship and sheer beauty of the ring. We are so lucky to have you as our partner.

Many years ago I was fortunate to have inherited my grandmother’s diamond engagement ring. It was missing two ruby baguettes that were originally set on either side of a beautiful diamond, but they had fallen out so long ago that I never saw her ring with them in it.  Also there had been a lovely engraved design on the band that was nearly worn away and the ring had never been cleaned in the 60 years my grandmother wore it. I held on to it for decades waiting until I could afford to have the ring restored and resized and to find the right person to do it.  When I met and spoke with Linda in her shop I could tell that was an especially talented jewelry and jewelry conservator.  Sometimes a person’s work is just what they do and sometimes it is also who they are, this is Linda.  I felt she had not only the appropriate skill and experience to do the restoration but also the heart and soul to treat this special ring with the care and caring that was needed.  When the work was completed, the ring was restored to it’s former splendor, rubies, engraving and more.  When I say it I felt I was seeing it in the way my grandmother must have seen it when she received it almost one hundred years ago.  There are no words to fully express my deep appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding word done by Linda, her staff, and colleagues. A work of art restored by true artists.  Thank you and bless you all.


    My fiance went to Linda to get my engagement ring and it is absolutely stunning! Together they designed a one of a kind ring that not only fits my lifestyle but my personality. We are currently working with her to get our wedding bands and have no doubt we will see the same results! Highly recommend Linda for personalized care and attention while working within your budget to get you the perfect ring(s)!


My fiancée and I were above all interested in purchasing something unique for our engagement ring. After shopping in Denver and Boulder and failing to find the perfect ring, we decided to think over our options. Heading to the car, seemingly resigned to selecting a ring without the “wow,” we serendipitously passed Christine Marguerite Designs. We had a vague notion of the kind of ring we wanted, a diamond filigree ring with an octagonal setting, but had not considered going the custom route—I guess we figured it would be too daunting to try. Enter Linda, the proprietress. Upon first meeting Linda, it was difficult not to be infected by her effervescent personality and her obvious passion for her craft. She sold us on the idea of creating something wholly unique through a collaborative process. We would provide her with the general parameters (including our budget), would afford her artistic license in making our joint schematics a reality, and she would seek our approval at all the major stopping points along the road. She guided us through the process with aplomb, and took great pains to address all of our concerns. The final product was stunning: it seemed to capture everything we wanted without us having known we wanted it. Instead of settling for an impersonal rock attached to a hunk of metal, we took a leap of faith and trusted in Linda and her collaborative process, and in the end we received a one-of-a-kind ring forged, in part, by the very partnership which it is meant to symbolize. We are eternally grateful. Some of the most beautiful original jewelry I’ve ever seen! If you want something no one else has, this is the place!


Designing our commitment rings with Linda was a magical experience. Linda developed a vision for our rings that embraced our individuality, while evoking an eternal bond between us as a couple. She invited us to join with her in choosing the placement of the gems on our rings, and as we did so, she taught us how the gems and their placement can create vignettes and stories, guiding us to build into our rings our own stories of beauty, comfort, magic and union. Thank you.   The ladies of Christine Marguerite Designs Inc. are the best. From design to fabrication, they helped me design the ring of a lifetime. My Fiancee absolutely loves the ring, and I love the fact that it is the only one in the world. These ladies are truly genuine and love what they do. I could brag forever about them. Thank you for helping making dreams come true.


Thank you for my custom made Anniversary gift. I love it! You and Joe are so very sneaky! It is a welcome addition to my growing collection of beautiful jewelry from Boulder!


I just picked up my wedding band from Christine Marguerite Designs Inc. I’m thrilled with how it turned out! Linda and her team really listened to my design ideas, pulled out all the stops to get it done and the result is stunning! The craftsmanship is amazing and they were so accommodating and enthusiastic. If you’re looking for quality, custom work, these are the people who are truly passionate about the pieces they create. Thanks!


I received estimates from six different places for a very meaningful gold bracelet I wanted to have made. I chose Christine Marguerite primarily because the customer service (Linda and Jessica) were so personable and warm, and that meant a lot to me. I also could see that they did solid work and trusted their knowledge and ability. They worked with me patiently, Jessica was awesome at following-up with me w/out being overbearing, and they kept me appraised of the progress on the piece. I just picked up my bracelet and I absolutely love it. I loved it so much I cried, actually.

I had the MOST beautiful necklace made here. Re-purposed a wedding ring into a drop necklace, absolutely stunning!


I just wanted to share with you how happy I am with the engagement ring that I recently received. I could not be happier, and I could not have been more surprised! I never imagined wearing a ring every day since I am not one to normally wear jewelry, but with this ring, I now cannot imagine taking it off!


My fiancée and I spoke a lot about the importance of sustainability of materials and quality of craftsmanship for an engagement ring. After a lot of research we chose Christine Marguerite Rings. And we were totally correct! The ring blew my fiancée out of the water and we will be back for wedding bands.


In January 2013, I went in to the store and met Linda for the first time. I sat with her to re-design a ring for an heirloom diamond I was removing from a former wedding ring; and it was a rush job since I was leaving the state in less than a week. While discussing the infinite design possibilities with her genius mind, my sister noticed a mount in the case. Oh my goodness…it was perfect. A perfect fit for my finger without resizing, perfect design for me and my style, perfect fit for my diamond. I now have the most phenomenal “Goddess” filigree and milgrain diamond ring I’ve ever seen. Working with Linda and her staff has been one of the most soulful experiences of my life. I feel as if she and I connected on a spirit level. When the work of art was delivered into my hand, tears welled up in my eyes with the beauty of the piece. I am so grateful for the hearts, artistry, and love I experienced on this part of my journey. Thank you for all eternity!


Hi Linda, I just want to say thank you for the beautiful ring you designed for me with the white Montana sapphire. Nate proposed over the weekend while we were hiking in Rocky Mountain Park for our anniversary. The ring is exactly what I wanted and the setting is absolutely gorgeous. I am so appreciative of the time that went into designing and making my amazing custom ring! Thank you for your expertise and for making the process so easy for us. We were both very happy to support a great local business and will be back to have my wedding ring designed by you soon! Thank you!

Nate and Katie

Hello Linda, This is Clint. I came into your shop back in September with my brother, his wife and my pa to purchase a ring for my mother’s 60th birthday. Well, first, Wow!!! The ring is absolutely gorgeous, perfect really. You plucked it from our imagination … right there at the front. It couldn’t have been made any better. Our mom welled-up before she even got it on her finger. Seeing it on her, it is the ring that has been missing from that finger for 60 years and finally found its way … she loves it.


We couldn’t be more pleased with my custom-designed 10th Anniversary ring! It was so comforting to have you get to know us and understand our particular style. I was clueless as to how we were going to fit another ring with my existing band, and you made them look as if they were made for each other. As a Physician Assistant, I am able to keep my ring on every day and it doesn’t get caught on my exam gloves. I have already received so many compliments and I can’t wait to see what artistic surprises you can create for us in the future!

Hello Christine Marguerite, We just received the turquoise stud you designed and built for my husband. We both love it. We spent a week in Boulder and were sent to you by a young woman in another store on Pearl Street. One of the joys of travel is meeting interesting people and enjoying the richness of humanity. Our visit to your shop was one of the many highlights of our short time in Colorado and Wyoming. We see flower petals when looking at the stud from one angle and a human foot print when looking from another. We love the creative and unique aspects of your design. Thank you for coming out to help us that night. We grok the whole experience.


Love those Tahitian black pearls! … I wear mine faithfully! Gorgeous necklaces! Love,


I anxiously awaited the arrival of the ring you customized for me. When I opened the box, I was awed. It truly reflects the beauty I had envisioned. Thank you for your artistic ability.  


Claudia and I were married in San Francisco last weekend. All who saw your rings thought them so unique and tasteful. Of course, we feel the same way. Thank you thank you.  


Linda, the owner and founder of Christine Marguerite Designs, was the designer of our commitment rings, which she named “The Guiding Light.”  Not only is Linda a master jewelry designer with years of training and experience in working with metals and gems, and not only does she have a wonderful artistic sensibility, but moreover, she does what she does from her heart, soul, and third-eye.  Designing our commitment rings was a magical experience.  Linda got to know us as a couple and shared with us the unique images and concepts that arose for her as she spoke with us.  She developed a vision for our rings that embraced our individuality, while evoking an eternal bond between us as a couple.  She invited us to join with her in choosing the placement of the gems on our rings, and as we did so, she taught us how the gems and their placement can create vignettes and stories, guiding us to build into our rings our own stories of beauty, comfort, magic and union.


I shopped around Boulder for a jeweler that could create a custom wedding band to go with my custom engagement ring. When I arrived at Christine Marguerite Designs I knew that I had found the right team to make my vision a reality. Not only was Linda (owner) enthusiastic about my ideas, she was confident that I was going to get exactly what I wanted. She was right! She worked with my tight schedule and pulled out all the stops to get my ring designed, cast and finished with a quick turnaround. These folks are talented, friendly, and accommodating and I’m thrilled with the whole experience. Buying local and handmade means supporting artisans that are passionate about each piece, open to your vision, proud of their work and willing to go above and beyond. I plan on wearing this ring everyday and it’s meaning is reflected in the care in which it was made. Thanks to Linda and her team for your dedication to beautiful craftsmanship.


From the moment the owner, Linda, spoke to me about my custom engagement ring idea, I knew this was the place I would have it done. Her spirit, enthusiasm, and honesty made the entire process a true joy. My project was to try and recreate a fancier version of a ring that had been in my now-fiancee’s family for some time. Linda and her team immediately took to the idea and helped me pick out the perfect stone. When I picked up the completed ring a few weeks later, I was in awe of how great of a job she did. We’ll definitely be coming back for wedding bands. Guys – I can’t recommend the custom ring route enough. It makes the whole moment even more special. Come to Christine Marguerite and talk to Linda about your ideas before you visit the soul-less megastores. She gave me a very fair price and the completed ring appraised for about 175% of what I paid for it. After I proposed, I brought my fiancee in to meet Linda and to see where her ring was made. There isn’t a better way to create a unique token which symbolizes your engagement, trust me. She’ll love the thought, uniqueness, and inspiration behind your gift.


From the moment you step into Christine Marguerite Designs you can tell that this is the place to get something special for the one you love. There are no long glistening cases filled with pre-made rings made by some unknown jeweler. There is simply a family business that will design and make you a fantastic and unique piece of jewelry. My first visit to see Linda was nothing like what I expected . Searching for an engagement ring at other big jewelry stores often ends up with you standing in front of a case of bling with no idea where to start.  My experience at Christine Marguerite was completely different. Linda was extremely knowledgeable about gem stones and precious metals and was one of the most friendly and warm people I have met. She is an experienced designer who has spent her life making beautiful jewelry for fellow Boulderites. My fiancée is in love with her engagement ring (and me, of course) and loves that it was made by a local jeweler just for her. This is simply the best place to get your custom jewelry. They will bend over backwards to make your experience special and make your jewelry exactly how you want.


I’ve been in the shop many times and have a wish-list a mile long!  Their work is unique, very well-crafted and GORGEOUS!!!  I was able to get jewelry for 4 of the ladies in my family for Christmas and they absolutely loved everything!  Especially priceless was the Mother’s necklace that Linda Kozloff-Turner made right in front of me.  It was amazing to watch and she brought tears to my eyes.  Thanks Linda, Laura and Christine Marguerite Designs for helping make the holidays extra special, you rock!!:)
