In mythology, Mercury was the messenger of the gods and today, Mercury Ring's brilliant diamonds and beautifully designed rings are the message of love. This symbolism means everything to a company whose goal is to create the finest bridal jewelry with the speed of Mercury.
About Mercury Ring
Proudly taking its place as one of the remaining family-run jewelry manufacturing companies, Mercury Ring was founded in 1944 and is currently operated by both second and third generations of the Bergman family. The key to its longevity and success is flexibility, the ability to change with the times and reinvent its product line according to market trends. Another is output: a bridal collection that began with nine three-stone engagement rings and now boasts more than 700 designs!
Giving a contemporary spin to the "We Do It Your Way" philosophy, Mercury Ring bases many of its designs on customers' requests, offering a variety of choices with every purchase. These include a mix and match of interchangeable ring components; combinations of metals; and a choice of size, price, and shape of diamonds.
Mercury Ring's professionalism is reflected in every facet of the company's operation, from craftsmanship to customer service.
