Alex Gulko is an experienced craftsman and jewelry designer who transforms your personal style into wearable art. Ukrainian born, he began making jewelry as an apprentice to a jeweler whose father worked for the fabled Faberge atelier. Alex attained the professional rank of Master of the Union of Artists of the USSR through participation in Ukrainian and international exhibitions. The Ukrainian Museum of Historical Treasure has also honored Alex by procuring several of pieces of his jewelry for preservation.

As an experienced craftsman, Alex's tremendous attention to detail and quality consistently produces timeless and elegant jewelry. His design bears the hallmark of a historical perspective. Pieces range in style from Art Nouveau, Art Deco to his personal contemporary design, which uses geometric planes and open architectural elements. Alex believes being able to design well-crafted pieces from a variety of styles makes him a more versatile and better able to meet the diverse tastes of his clientele.

Come to his workshop and design your own jewelry. It will be a very exciting and satisfying process. Alex begins by discerning your style using specific techniques developed through years of experience of designing. This stage is absolutely crucial to the design process. Then Alex draws a detailed sketch and works with you to select the perfect compliment of stones and metal to enhance your piece. Once the design has met with your approval, Alex creates a wax model from which he then crafts your unique piece of jewelry.

"This is exactly the engagement experience I always dreamed of. My fiance went to Alex Gulko and designed a ring specific to my tastes, with Alex inserting his artistic guidance to produce the most beautiful ring in the world. One of my friends actually burst into tears upon seeing it, saying it was the most beautiful engagement ring she'd ever seen. Our experience with Alex was so wonderful - he was personable and helpful, and cared greatly about his work. In a day and age where most girls have their rings from a nationwide chain store, I am so happy to be set apart. Alex followed up with my fiance a few days after the proposal to see how it went, and even sent us a box of Ukranian chocolates the next week. This whole experience is a wonderful way to start our life together. It's worth it - invest in Alex's old world craftsmanship. You'll be happy you did!"
