Originally from Massachusetts, founder Anne Glackin moved to NYC where she earned her Graduate Gemologist Degree and began her career in fine jewelry. In 2015, while working at Harry Winston, Anne began to utilize her network of diamond dealers and master jewelers to offer her friends designer-quality products with insider pricing. In 2021, as her client list began to grow, Anne left her job as a Jewelry Specialist at Phillips Auctioneers, to launch her custom jewelry, thyroid cancer collection and appraisal services under the Annie James name.
I worked with Anne to design the perfect engagement ring for my wife. Before our first meeting it all felt a bit overwhelming, but after only a few minutes with Anne, I was at ease.
Anne was a facilitator, a guide, and a trusted partner to me through this entire process. She helped me create one of the happiest and most memorable days of my life – and my (now) fiancée is still blown away by how well “I” did.
Anne was absolutely fantastic. She taught me about sapphires, developed the ring design, found a perfect stone, and worked to make sure the construction was done flawlessly and on a very tight time frame.
Anne helped me understand how diamonds are measured and valued, which made me feel comfortable with my choices…I felt like she guided me towards the right option, not just the most expensive option.
With little guidance, Anne made the most beautiful ring we could have dreamt on a quick timeline. Anne made me feel comfortable and confident through the entire engagement ring process. I am so grateful for her time, talent, and guidance!
Anne immediately put me at ease, explaining the nuances of the diamond industry and what to look for. She acted as the perfect consultant on style, both for the diamond and setting, putting me at ease with all of the various decisions I had to make.
