About Us

Erica Derout is the Founder of Love Affair Diamonds, a vintage jewelry boutique specializing in loose antique diamonds, vintage fine jewelry, and vintage inspired custom settings.  She fell in love with old cuts while on a quest to find her own dream ring many years ago. This admiration quickly spiraled into a love affair with antique jewelry, and an obsession with assisting (some call it enabling!) others in finding their perfect old cut diamond.  She’s a true matchmaker in every sense of the word – striving to help her clients find or create their dream rings – heirlooms to be treasured for many generations to come.  Jewels truly worthy of an encore!

Erica is not only inspired to find and preserve antique treasures, but to also channel her creativity into the world of jewelry design. She brings a refreshing modern interpretation to classic vintage elements, paying special attention to details such as a ring's view from the side - the angle most often seen by the wearer, and most often neglected by many designs.  From tilted halos and sleek metal progressions, to the selective and purposeful use of design elements such as milgrain and textured finishes (yes, you CAN have too much milgrain!), her aesthetic ensures that every design is decidedly feminine and vintage inspired, but never fussy, pretentious or gratuitous - and every design is available to customize per the client's wishes.  With Love Affair Diamonds, there truly are no limits to what you can create! 


“I’ve never thought of my jewellery as trophies. I’m here to take care of it and to love it, for we are only temporary custodians of beauty.”

- Elizabeth Taylor
