2019 was a tremendous year for us here at Takayas Custom Jewelry. Our small business has grown to a height above what we could have expected - and it's you we have to thank!

This spring, Takayas was thrilled to officially reveal his own vision for the future of jewelry design: the nine collections of Beyond by Takayas. Our exciting new jewelry brand invites the wearer into a world inspired by the places where opposites meet, boldly delving into one-of-a-kind designs that are as beautiful as they are experimental.

The international spotlight shone on Takayas Custom Jewelry this summer, through features in the June, July, and August 2019 issues of British Vogue and Vogue Retail. It was an incredible opportunity for us to share our work with a new audience of jewelry lovers across the Atlantic! As we head into 2020, we have our sights set on continuing to expand our reach around the world.

Above all else, the greatest experiences we've had this year were the ones we've shared with you - our wonderful customers. Between statement-making geeky engagement rings, spectacular family heirlooms, and more, thank you all for giving us the honor of bringing your personal ideas and inspirations to life. We can't wait to see what extraordinary stories you bring to our studio next year!


The most-requested theme for jewelry creations this year was Kingdom Hearts. Perhaps this may not come as a surprise, considering the much-anticipated release of Kingdom Hearts 3 back in January! For you ultra-fans out there, take a look at our round-up of the Kingdom Hearts inspired designs we've made.

When you're creating a custom engagement ring, the possibilities are endless for choosing a special centerpiece that truly reflects the person you love. Blue sapphires were the most popular center stone this year after diamonds! Check out our Final Fantasy XIV Black Mage Inspired Engagement Ring for a sweet use of a beloved partner's birthstone, or our Vintage-Style Sailor Moon Inspired Engagement Ring for a uniquely-colored sapphire that gives a delightful twist.


We wish you and your loved ones a fantastic end to your 2019. Happy New Year from all of us at Takayas Custom Jewelry!
