Sample Bespoke Designs 

"I got a bespoke piece made for a special occasion and I was delighted with the results. I found Deirdre and her team to be very professional and creative, without any problems during the process. I would highly recommend her!Brian Spollen - Dublin 2016

"Deirdre designed my wedding ring 26 years ago and I was thrilled - I'd had bad flu and had to order it over the phone, and she got it absolutely right! Since then she has made a Sapphire and Diamond eternity ring, a pearl necklace for the birth of my son, a beautiful pair of earrings for my daughter's birth, and last of all her gorgeous gold acorn earrings for our 25 year anniversary. I flew to Dublin to pick those up! I can't recommend her too highly if you're looking for exquisite, individual pieces that will withstand d the test of time" Sandra Curtin, Sydney Australia

"I worked with Deirdre re-designing my 25 year old rings. I am thrilled with the result." Annette Burke - Dublin 2015

"My diamond ring has given me 20 years of delight. Deirdre is a truly gifted designer and a sensitive sales person." Laura Stewart - Dublin 1997

"Great shop, great location, wonderfully talented individuals. Thank you for looking after us" Simon Harris Belfast 2017

"When we recently celebrated our 25th anniversary, my husband and I commissioned a truly special eternity ring made in a modern setting and all round diamonds.That stays on my finger always!. I have enormous regard for Deirdre’s professionalism. Her sense of design is magnificent and she also has an ability to interpret a client’s ideas with seemless ease. Budget is an important consideration for me and Deirdre designed our piece to fit that budget. Deirdre displays an enormous passion for her craft and is truly a master craftsman" Hilary Prentice - Dublin 2011

"We were 25 years married and we wanted to get matching rings to celebrate our marriage and honour our 4 sons. Deirdre was so accommodating to our ideas and added her own. Today we collected our rings and they are way above our expectations. We are thrilled with them. It was better than getting engaged. Our rings are stunning. Many thanks.Carol Cassidy  2018

“I can’t thank you, enough for your time, professionalism and the kindness showed to me when starting out this process.

And of course, the end product – what can I say…You captured everything I had hoped for and more. I didn’t say much on that Wednesday evening when I collected the ring from your shop, I was probably a little stunned and overwhelmed but I’ve seen it every day since and it’s stunning! You managed to capture everything we had talked about and more. It’s bold, elegant and beautiful.
Most importantly, Keelin absolutely loves it, it blew her away! She also loves the story behind how it was made and feels although it’s a new ring there’s a little history to it already. You hear nowadays how so many people buy a token ring and then buy the engagement ring proper together… I really didn’t want to do that.

I wanted to show the woman I love that I know her so well, to really surprise her and to knock her socks off – and with your ring I really achieved that! Again, thank you so so much for all your work, time and effort. You’ve made both Keelin and myself very happy!”
