Bespoke Jewellery Testimonials
Karen Brost, Fashion designer, was asked recently in an interview with an eco wedding magazine in the US.
"Your engagement ring is wonderful...is it Emerald? Any story behind that?"
"Yes, there is. I told my husband early in our relationship that I've never been a fan of diamonds as they always seemed rather cold, pretentious and old to me. He seemed quite pleased when I told him that I'd prefer a giant Citrine to a small yellow diamond, haha. When the time came to look for an engagement ring, we turned to an incredibly talented friend of ours who does stunning custom jewellery Her name is Nikki Galloway and she owns Nude Jewellery I explained to her that I would like something that had a vintage 40's feeling to it and I'd love the overall feeling of the stone to be "joyful and eternal." She came back to us with the most incredible sketches and a breathtaking array of gems for us to choose from. Nikki said that she would not normally have chosen an emerald but this one was so light in color that it almost looked aquamarine. Tim and I fell in love with it and it then took her a few weeks to make the ring. I must have 5 women a week stopping to ask me about the ring and what is the stone."
"Thanks Nikki for fulfilling our expectations and then some!!" Karen Brost Whyte
"Nikki and the team at Nude Jewellery helped me with every aspect of my wedding jewellery, from resizing my engagement ring, to helping me design a completely unique engraved wedding ring, to finding a ring for the picky groom. They were brilliant throughout, really helpful, full of ideas, and the results were better than expected - beautiful jewellery, I can't recommend them enough! I’ll be back with all my future jewellery needs!" Alice June 2015
"Needless to say Chloë ABSOLUTELY LOVED the bespoke fox pendant!! And it's easy to see why. It's fantastic. Thank you so much for all your hard work with it" John, June 2015
"I said yes have to say it's the most beautiful engagement ring I've ever seen and I was completely bowled over. The comments from my friends and family has been amazing, they all think it's stunning. Thank you so much for being such a huge part of the happiest day of my life." Emily
"In a miraculous turn of events, she did indeed say yes! Have a look at Emily's timeline to see all the nice things people have said! After "ooh yes please!", "it's perfect" was the next thing she said!! Thank you Nikki, she wouldn't have said yes without you!!" Peter via Facebook, May 2015
"Thank you so much for the bespoke silver pendant you made for Justine’s birthday. Being able to talk through the design with you before having it handmade, the advice you offered on choosing stones and your knowledge of the area was really helpful. It was also great fun. The pendant itself was a huge success – Justine was very happy. I think we will be back for more." Jonathan, February 2014
It's a real bonus knowing that if I am somewhere and see a piece of jewellery that is nice but not quite right, I can rely on Nikki to understand my description of it and turn it into exactly what I want. And I'm not the only one to be happy with the results, as I have often had friends and colleagues asking me where I get my bespoke pieces from." Ela, January 2014
On each job Nikki and her team have exceeded my expectations with the quality of their work, creativity and helpfulness. They're also very practical about budget limitations and schedule. This is all achieved with a cheerful and approachable manner that makes working with Nude Jewellery such a pleasant and professional experience. I heartily recommend them." Lucy, December 2013
"Thank you so much for my beautiful engagement ring. I absolutely love it and can't stop looking at it. Just wanted to also say a big thank you for making this occasion for us even more special with your excellent service and enthusiasm. My fiancé is already designing his wedding band....looks like you'll be seeing us again!" Katie, December 2013
"I approached Nude Jewellery a few weeks before my wedding day to ask if they could design and make a wedding band to compliment my engagement ring. Nikki came up with the perfect design, made a mock up of it so I could see it first and then made it well within the tight timescales. The result is absolutely as I had hoped and my fiance and I are both really happy with it. From start to finish, working with Nikki and her team was a real pleasure." Caroline, 2013
"I used the nude jewellery bespoke service to craft the engagement ring I wanted for my future wife, it was obviously a success as she said yes!
The service was exactly what I was looking for. Nikki understood my requirements from my initial ideas and provided various options to guide me through the process. I was even able incorporate diamonds that had been handed down through my family. This personal touch service provided 'me' with a beautiful individual ring that makes me smile every time I see it on my Fiancée’s finger" Ollie, 2013
"Nikki and the team are fantastic. Having used the bespoke service several times over the past ten years, I am always impressed with their ability to interpret half-formed ideas and create something amazing. And always better than I hoped for.
I always presumed a 'bespoke' service would be way beyond my means, but they are able to work within any budget and adapt designs/materials without compromising artistic flair or quality.
I've recommended them to numerous friends and family and they have been similarly impressed." Cate, 2013
“We had a really fun day making our rings – Nikki was so lovely. And we both still can’t believe how amazing they are. It’s been by far my favourite part of our wedding preparations and the most personal thing I’ll take away from the day aside from my memories. Every time I look at my wedding ring it’ll be a reminder of my husband because he made it for me!” Lucy White, London
“Making our wedding rings was one of the many hair-brained ideas of my wife-to-be. I was dubious, given my only previous, somewhat disastrous effort at making something ended in a tangled mess in my CDT class at school! Despite all my fears, both rings turned out brilliantly, with Nikki proving an excellent and patient teacher. A great memorable experience all round and one I would highly recommend." Simon West, London
