Our Story - Scout Mandolin

Scout Mandolin is a luxury brand that makes custom one of a kind engagement rings, wedding bands and fine jewelry. Scout Mandolin is intentionally evocative of past, present and future. ‘Scout’ is the soft, precise search for love manifest in design – the search for who he or she is and what makes him or her unique; ‘Mandolin’ is the allegorical essence of the sweet country melodies that captured Julie’s imagination as a girl growing up in the south. Design and create the finest quality custom engagement rings and jewelry, cut out the middle men to save our clients time and money, provide socially conscious diamonds that are the very best value and quality and use our innovative custom design process and decades of experience to help our clients capture the essence of their one true love.

Truly one of a kind custom engagement rings and jewelry. Our creative design process deliberately empowers each partner to play a part, preserving the balance between the necessity of their input with the magic of your surprise!

Our Founder

Founder, Julie Martin, graduated with a B.A. in Applied Arts and Sciences with an emphasis in Jewelry and Metals. She continued her passion by apprenticing under two master jewelers for several years gaining the experience needed to create fine jewelry.  Simultaneously she started a fashion jewelry company with her pieces selling in hundreds of locations around the world. A decade later, she sold her fashion jewelry company, following her passion for creating one of-a-kind custom engagement rings and fine jewelry. Scout Mandolin is this next chapter. She has been creating custom engagement rings for the last 6 years and her designs are known for being truly special and luxurious.

Julie’s vision of transforming the way custom engagement rings and jewelry are created has come to life in Scout Mandolin where her bespoke design process captures the art of love. We take the guess-work out of the process by giving he or she a platform to say what they want,  while preserving the element of surprise.

Scout Mandolin takes the guess-work out of engagement ring shopping by creating a one-of-a-kind ring for your one-of-a-kind love. We want this to be a smooth and enjoyable experience. This is where dreams are designed and capturing every facet of your special someone is our #1 goal.
