About Us

In the Beginning:

In the fall of 1988, Sophie Dabakarov opened a small jewelry boutique in Fresh Meadows, New York. Having a strong sense of community, she decided a location within her hometown would be best. Her prior experience in the diamond and fashion jewelry industry in New York City’s diamond district provided her with the foundation needed to rapidly grow her boutique. In just a few short years of being in business, the stellar reputation of Sophie’s Creations grew throughout New York, the tri-state area, and beyond.

Then there were two:

As Sophie’s Creations success grew, so did its staff. In the fall of 1999, Sasha Abaev joined as a partner. With his extensive industry experience beginning in 1979, he was well equipped to bring our clients the level of ingenuity they had been seeking. In the years that followed, Sasha expanded Sophie’s production and customization of engagement rings and wedding bands. We are honored to be a destination for the start of so many couples’ futures.


In the spring of 2006, Sophie’s Creations moved to a larger Fifth Avenue-style boutique down the block from her original location. The decision to stay in the same neighborhood was a testament to Sophie’s commitment to the community where she got her start. Our larger location allows us to accommodate the needs of each individual client. Sophie’s showroom allows clients to comfortably browse, successfully shop, wait for quality repairs, as well as relax in our lounge area.
