Imagined From Heart. Fashioned By Hand.


Our Story.


Born just 70 miles from Rome on a small farm, Marinelli Lungo (Marty) has lived his craft. He immigrated to the United States during the Kennedy administration. In 1975 he moved out on his own and began working as a diamond setter in Los Angeles with a goal that one day he would own his own Fine Jewelry Business.

Marty took a chance and sold his motorcycle for $3,000 and started Marinelli Fine Jewelry with a close friend in the late '70s. Years later, he moved Marinelli Fine Jewelry to Dana Point in Orange County California where he operates today.

At Marinelli Fine Jewelry, we specialize in custom jewelry insisting that every piece has an element of human touch. Just as Marty began his journey as a world class jeweler with only a vision, our passion is to work with customers to make something unique that starts from the heart and is fashioned into something  beautiful by hand. Our work is our story.

Marty has set an estimated one million stones over the course of his career. His work brings joy to customers all over the world including right here in Orange County, California.

Custom Jewelry

We specialize in all forms of custom jewelry including engagement rings. Whether you are seeking the perfect ring or the perfect gift for any occasion we would love to work with you to make something unique that sets any occasion apart.

Our Process


The first step is to have a conversation. We would like to know more about you, your needs, the occasion, your budget, and your timeline. You can give us a call or come and speak with us in person. Once we have established what you have imagined we will present you with several stones to choose from. Once we have the stones and details of your project defined we will begin with the custom design and present them to you for your approval. Once approved, we begin work and follow up with you when your piece is hand crafted, polished, and ready.


We know that jewelry is a very special part of our lives and our stories. Often, our pieces carry with them tremendous sentimental value and when a repair needs to be made it can be stressful determining who to trust with your cherished belongings. At Marinelli Fine Jewelry, we are happy to be a part of making your piece whole. Nothing can take away the meaning and sentiment behind a piece; we strive to return the luster and functionality to reflect how much your jewelry means to you.
