MICHAEL M is a Los Angeles-based luxury bridal and fashion jewelry company started in 2008 by Michael Meksian and his son, Peter. Known for masterfully handcrafted pieces, MICHAEL M designs show unique under-stone polishing and a custom blend of alloy metals. Milligrain details, hand-engraving and meticulous attention to detail set us apart, making us a favorite amongst our retail partners and clients.
Michael Meksian wanted to bring European-style sophistication and elegance into the jewelry industry, creating exquisite designs that speak to today’s modern woman. Our love of the European is best reflected in the distinctive Euro-style shanks featured in many of our designs. Another MICHAEL M bridal hallmark is the U-set. Requiring master craftsmanship and expert diamond-setting skills, this technique requires each diamond to be set in a U-shaped carriage that embraces the edges of the diamond. The U-set diamonds are viewable from every possible angle, allowing the coruscating diamond to shine for maximum brilliance.
