Its very sweet when people pass on our contacts and make a connection with ‘jeweller to the lost’ Thursday, Oct 24 2019 

Another couple who found their ring in style. Bailey commissioned this engagement ring for Maddie – like all young folk he had a specific design, he used a family gem and the studio made the ring to last forever – none of this skimping on metal, taking shortcuts . . . this pic was sent with a terrific ‘thank-you’.

Barbara hand delivered these to our (private) Sydney serial offender on Tuesday Thursday, Oct 24 2019 

The design was originally initiated for a favourite Brisbane client who ventured in a different direction. Barbara kept the elements live, thinking to make them for herself . . . our (private) gem-loving Sydney client spied these and pounced, end of story.
