Our blog literally started out as Chantal and I were searching for the perfect engagement band; eventually, the best bridal set for her to wear on our wedding day. Sounds cheezy, I know! However, we came across a lot of problems during the planning stage of our engagement and wedding. Trust me, there are a ton of things an average joe like you need to know and prepare for when looking for the best wedding jewelry. Our little knowledge of the jewelry industry became a huge issue during our search but at the same time, the experience gave us the BEST IDEA and DECISION we ever made in our lives. We created the Ring to Perfection blog and started curating our best jewelry finds from different designers online.
Initially, all we wanted to do was provide a guide for wedding and engagements for couples. That’s why we have a lot of blogs and articles dedicated to wedding planning and engagements. We made it our goal to help other couples so they don’t have to go through the same hassles we had to endure during the process. Our blog became a hit! From the constant growth of our community, there came the requests for general jewelry tips and guides and product requests. When we started getting these, we knew that we badly needed to expand and so we did.
Chantal and I reached out to my childhood best friend, Denver, a hairstylist, and Lize (Denver’s co-worker at that time, now soon-to-be-wife), a makeup artist, to get professional pieces of advice on the types of jewelry that people are looking for on weddings and the struggles couples are experiencing during the wedding planning. When it comes to wedding issues, Denver and Lize are experts! With their line of work, they witness a number of wedding plans unfold every week. They are very much exposed to the frustrations that come with the planning, and most importantly, they know the best solutions to the typical wedding issues. They have been working together in beautifying brides and groom on engagement parties and the wedding day itself so if there is anybody who knows the struggles of soon-to-be-married couples by heart, it would certainly be this pair. We basically speak out of our own experience with them because not too long ago, Denver and Lize did our hair and makeup on our own wedding day and have greatly helped us in the planning process. We wrote more valuable and helpful wedding planning content and have continuously grown together not just as a team, but as best friends.
After we expanded, there came more questions for us to answer and more ideas for us to try out! Until, a number of community members asked, “Where do I get a good quality but affordable jewelry“. But there is one email that hit us hard, “Ring to Perfection is THE place for jewelry inspiration, and you always find the most beautiful bracelets, necklaces, rings and accessories for us. Why don’t you sell your own?” With this question, a new idea was born.” We launched our own brand of affordable but high-quality jewelry for our subscribers. We know how hard it is to start a brand. It can be a roller coaster ride but we did it anyway.
Denver and Lize have helped us greatly to get on this milestone and they stayed as our constant advisor in running the Ring to Perfection blog and store. With all the best information and advice from them in mind, Chantal and I have been constantly traveling the world to find the best jewelry around the world and to personally negotiate the best prices for us to continuously provide the best of the best on our growing global jewelry and accessory collection.
The time came and we needed to hire a professional model to wear our products. Luckily for us, Nick, Denver’s other best friend from high school (No I’m not jealous at all!), was more than willing to help us with our product photos. Denver introduced Nick to us and has since then become our brand ambassador. We have been helping each other grow our blog and have been constantly brainstorming for innovative ideas to continuously provide useful information to our readers and useful products to our customers.

Denver Welgesteld – Hairstylist
Hello dear readers. I have been cutting hair since I was young. I started by practicing on my siblings, and later at school. After years of education, training, and experience (with my soon-to-be wife, Lize), I am proud to have been finally able to open my own salon. It’s been a crazy ride ever since. We are still getting wedding gigs but with our salon, we get more exposure to more people who need help in improving their looks before attending different parties and events. We noticed how people needed more guidance in their overall look and style. Although a haircut makes a huge difference in the overall look, it is simply not enough. More often than not, my clients also need expert advice on how to wear different styles and how to wear different jewelry and accessories. This is why I am fully dedicated to sharing my ideas on this blog hoping that my expertise can help in the greater good and perfect beauty of everyone reading here. I am definitely looking forward to helping more of you!
Lize Gonzales – Makeup Artist
Hi! I’m Lize and I’m the beauty guru of the team. I’ve always loved painting people’s faces and seeing their genuine smile after I do my craft. When I was 6 years old, the first gift I vividly remember asking my parent was a big beauty case with loads of make-up. I basically made my favorite hobby then, my job now. And I love that my passion brought me to meeting Denver. I met Denver when we both had a gig to beautify the same bride on her wedding day. He did her hairstyle and I did her makeup. It’s so surreal how time has passed. I’ve been able to witness how we have grown into a strong couple that we are now with a strong beauty combo with our own beauty salon. Our salon focuses on nails and make-up (for Women and Men), movie-set preparation, and events preparation. With my knowledge of style and makeup, I am able to help Chantal and John provide the best styling suggestions for jewelry. If you ever find yourself unsure on how to stylize, I am just a message away to help you succeed!
Nick Wilson – Brand Ambassador
Nick here. Yes, I am the brand ambassador but that doesn’t mean I am here to just promote the products. I have personally tried the products and I have honestly left my feedback for my top favorites. I even wrote reviews on my own blog to share the experience of wearing RTP jewelry and accessories. If you have read my blog, you’ll know that I am just a regular guy who sucked in styling and who was lucky enough to have stylish and fashionable friends – friends who greatly helped me with the much-needed transformation. Having been able to try the RTP products, the experience gave me a better point of view on what I want and do not want with my jewelry. I’m sharing more of these here!
Looking back when RTP was launched, we had one goal in our minds: find high-quality rings, bracelets, and accessories – without paying an arm and leg for them. Today, we are happy to have been living with our goals. We now source our jewelry from Taiwan, Tibet, Nepal, China, the Netherlands, Mongolia, Italy, Russia, and the U.S., and we’re constantly on a search for more. Each of our jewelry is uniquely designed and most of our items are handmade-to-order for you! Although the preparation times are somewhat lengthier, our method ensures you will always receive a uniquely-designed top-quality piece of jewelry straight from our designers and manufacturers at the best lowest price.
Ever since we have read our community member’s suggestion, we’ve never looked back. We’ve already served over 130,000+ happy customers and over 4500 happy customers have left us five-star reviews of our products. Daily, we get more and more feedback from our satisfied customers worldwide and we are proud to share that our team has grown to over 12 full-time employees and have been successfully providing outstanding customer service and product quality.
Our team members, including myself John and my wife, Chantal, are also here to help if you have any sizing questions, if you’d like some style advice, or if you just want to say hi. We’re looking forward to bringing you jewelry that will make you shine as bright as your smile 🙂
