I have been fortunate in my travels to have worked with and learned from some of the world’s best designers, artists & artisans.
Like many, I started humbly – for me it was in Mexico – my first foray into the jewelry trade during the early 1990´s making large silver electroformed jewelry, as that was all the rage back then.
As jewelry trends began to change and designs got smaller, I decided to learn the art of casting, to work with a wide variety of precious metals – silver, gold, platinum & palladium – each with their own unique nuances and design possibilities.
In my search for jewelry design perfection and manufacturing precision, I was put at the forefront of digital integration way back in the early 2000’s – a pioneer in the use of robotics, lasers, CAD and 3D printing in jewelry.
But what was jewelry without gemstones? The colors and varieties of gemstones available makes a jewelry creation all the richer. Over the years, my fascination for crafting designs drew me towards the study of gemology and receiving a G.G degree from the prestigious GIA.
David opened the doors to the Condesa Jewelry Expertise store on Main Street in 2017, since then myself and my wife Monyca are happily settled in Vancouver and enjoying all that beautiful British Columbia has to offer.
“What I love the most about jewelry, is how it makes the wearer feel, whether it’s a family memento restored to its original glory or it’s a custom designed engagement ring created from scratch – each customer has their own story to tell and new memories to make.“ – I spend much of my time creating commissioned pieces for clients all over BC, the US & Mexico – from simple pieces for engagements, weddings or other occupations to complex designs made real for the most demanding of clients.
