I worked with Ecksand 90% remotely where they really took care of me and all of my needs for my engagement ring. I really liked corresponding with Vanny and AJ who always were very professional and so helpful. I did not want to buy an engagement ring from a big "franchise" or company and wanted to support a smaller boutique like this one in Montreal. I really support the culture that Ecksand is trying to build and love that the ring is made in Montreal. Very high quality craftsmanship and will likely be returning for wedding bands.
