Your Private Jeweler


Jewelry is the world's tiniest memory capsule
Jewelry is the physical reminder of a memory.  It is the world’s smallest memory capsule, one that can be loved and then passed down.  Artful, unique, and precious, an heirloom is so much more than materials and gems.

We offer white-glove service of today’s most coveted styles, custom design, and jewelry care, with the best value for any target spend.

Our History

The Leake Co. was established in 2020. Named after my great-grandmother’s family, this adoration for artistic jewelry is truly generational. My grandmother’s jewelry box was always full of interesting pieces with equally fascinating stories.
Above all, she gifted heirloom quality jewelry tailored to the wearer–a lesson in quality that I knew would be the cornerstone to The Leake Co.

Meet Your Jeweler
Sarah Martin Rowe
I fell in love with jewelry during my university years as a classical musician. My mom and I made it a habit to follow local jewelry auctions, coveting Art Deco and Edwardian rings.
A lot has happened since then.
I entered the jewelry industry as a retail client specialist, found my way through the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), and learned from some of the industry’s finest designers, craftsmen and innovators.
Returning to Artful Jewelry led to The Leake Co.  Advising, guiding, and educating our clients is the core to this studio, and I can’t wait to show you the difference.


What Our Clients Say
The process was so fun and Sarah was honest, while still open to what I wanted. I have a hard time visualizing ideas, but Sarah’s system takes away all the guess work as you get a custom image of your final idea generated online prior to commitment.
Ashley R.
Sarah was easy to work with… especially since I don’t wear a lot of jewelry and had only loose ideas of what I wanted. She is a professional and has a true passion for helping others find their next heirloom.
Stacy F.
Sarah worked with me to source my fiancé’s dream diamond, and then went back and forth in a smooth as silk development process to create the ring. From form, shape, design, we created a unique and precious piece of heirloom jewelry that I couldn’t be happier with.
