Dear Geoff and Catherine,
A short note to express my absolute delight with your outstanding workmanship on my stunning sapphire & diamond ring. It is truly an amazing work of art. I am indebted to your wonderful creativity. It is not often that you find a couple as enthusiastic about their work as you guys are and your passion clearly shows. Many thanks for taking the time to make it simply perfect.
Hugs and kisses
You are married to an artist, a genius! We rank his work to that of Michelangelo’s! We say to Tiffanys and Cartier’s, “Eat your heart out! You have nothing to rival this.” Nothing!
Allen watched the driveway all this morning, to heart the sound of FedEx truck’s wheels rolling on the gravel. And when the driver came up the steps with the package, Allen turned to Randy and asked, “Is it alright, can I sign for the box?”
Randy showed Allen how to pull the tab and open the parcel. I was at the office, so they had to telephone me with the initial report. Then Allen drove over to Tracy’s house, to get down on his knees for the formal proposal. (Jeff informs me that Allen will be on his knees from here on out. We will wait until after the wedding to enlighten Allen about this.)
At first when they telephoned me with the report, I had the younger son Alex on the phone with me. Alex described the ring in glowing but precise terms: circular, round, shiny. I was exasperated! Details… I needed details. Allen took the phone and jabbered about Grecian proportions, graduation diamonds, etc.
Allen and Tracy are both stunned, overwhelmed at the designs, the perfect proportions, the artistry. I told Tracy to get used to everyone looking at her hand for a long long time. I don’t think anyone will bother to make eye contact with Tracy for months. All eyes will be on THE RING.
A HUGE Thank You for the exquisite ring. I can’t say much else, because I am still scraping myself up off the floor!!! Just INCREDIBLE work!!!
Without a doubt, from the photo, that is one of the most beautifully crafted rings that I have ever seen!
Your craftsmanship is unsurpassed and truly superior.
Anna has already had a look at the photo and is literally, “a can of compressed anxiety”, whilst waiting for my return. In regards to a wedding ring, a gold band with a platinum insert?
Thank you Jeff, very much appreciated.
Dear Mr Chapman,
You recently worked with my son, David Cooper, to design an engagement ring for his fiancee, Cynthia. We had the opportunity to see this lovely ring this past week when Cynthia returned to the United States.
You have created a truly beautiful and unusual piece of jewelry. Everyone who saw it on Cynthia’s finger commented on the originality of the design and the sparkling quality of the diamond itself.
This is such a special and happy occasion for David and Cindy, and you have helped to celebrate their future together most appropriately with a ring that graciously expresses their love and devotion.
So across the miles I’d like to say thank you for using your fine talent with such care on behalf of two young people that I love.
Thank you for creating such a beautiful engagement ring. I couldn’t have dreamt that the ring would be this beautiful.
I just can’t stop looking at it and everyone I have shown thinks it is very stunning.
I will definitely come and see you for any other jewellery purchases, repairs, etc.
What a master craftsman you are. The ring you created for our very special couple is exquisite.
You really have a heart of gold. Shae and Justin were very excited to have their ring so early and before the announcement on Saturday. So a warm thank you Jeff for all your loving efforts to produce a ring of beauty to give joy to others. I’m impressed.
Thank you so much for being so thoughtful and such great craftsman. We think you are “The Best” and we make sure everyone knows about you. Thanks Again.
Dearest Jeff and Cathy,
We just wanted you to both know that you have really made us incredibly happy. Your love of life, your honesty, your light hearted nature is also inspiring. The love you guys share is so clear to see and is inspiring. We really look up to you both. You have shown us great generosity and we want you to know that we appreciate it so very much. We realise what you have done for us and we are always grateful. Thank you for making our whole ring experience so precious something we will always carry and remember in our lives. It was so much fun. Both of you are very very very incredibly incredibly talented. Jeff thank you for making all our dreams come true in time for our wedding.
Everytime we see you both it is so lovely to your smiling and laughing faces. Sounds silly but you guys truly inspire us. Enough of our gushing but we are very lucky to have people like you in our lives.
Love to you both.
hank so much for the wedding ring which you designed and made. It is much more amazing than I had ever imagined. You are our family jeweller from now on, I couldn’t bring myself to use any other jeweller having seen your work. Our wedding day will be so much more amazing due to this ring!! I can not wait until the next time I get to deal with you.
Thank you so much for the wonderful work you did to create my engagement ring and wedding band. I can’t stop looking at them. The whole process was very easy and you even made our two young boys feel welcome in your store. Love the rings, love your work
Together wonderfully. Thanks for my life long treasure.
Oh My God!!
This man is pure magic.
I described “This” ring I had in my head and wow he knew exactly what I meant. My hands are shaking!
“Oh My God”, was the first thing I said to my fiancee when I first saw my beautiful ring! I am amazed at how perfect it is and it's exactly what I wanted. I shook, I cried and can’t stop looking at it. Thank you for making something so beautiful that is going to last a lifetime!
We cannot thank you enough for making and designing for making both Bec’s wedding, engagement and eternity ring, and Mitch’s wedding ring. Thank you especially for putting up with Bec’s worries and tiny fingers! We are now settled in the deep south (Tasmania) and enjoying all the delicious cheeses it has to offer. :)
Jeff and Catherine,
Thank you so much for creating our engagement ring and wedding bands they are absolutely stunning and perfect symbol for our union. The engagement is ring is amazing, it is so intricate and beautiful which is exactly what we were hoping for. The wedding bands are such a wonderful creation as well and are so unique.

To Catherine and Jeff,
What you have done for us will never be forgotten. Your level of customer service and passion has exceeded anyone's expectations. Jeff your craftsmanship and attention to detail is second to none.
I am a fussy girl who didn’t just want the ordinary for the engagement ring. But my beautiful man described something fabulous and Jeff did a fantastic job. Thanks for making the dream.
Thank you for making my diamond look so beautiful. You changed it for me perfectly after I spoke to you the second time and I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you so much for redoing my mum’s rings. I can’t believe how beautiful it has turned out. My mum would be absolutely thrilled, as I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was a very emotional experience.
The ring turned out better than I imagined. It's absolutely gorgeous. I love it!
I am (almost) speechless. The ring more so than I ever imagined. Thank you for making this so quickly, thank you for making it perfect, and thank you for extra hours of having it ready on Valentine’s day.
Our most sincere thanks
Jeff and Catherine,
It's not often that I am speechless but you have done it! My rings are just awesome! Absolutely beautiful, I couldn’t have asked for more. We will be back!
Thank you so much for the work you have done. The ring is more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. You are a brilliant artist!
Thank you very much for the brilliant job that you did creating my engagement ring. You both obviously love what you do, as it shows in your work. I can’t stop looking at it and I have had comments on how stunning the ring is. We also will be back when it's time to organise the wedding ring. I am so very grateful, thank you!
