David had a very specific ring in mind. A ring given to his wife had been lost and upon the birth of their second child, David wanted to duplicate the lost ring. He had very good pictures and our communication was actually quiet short. He did want a Tahitian Black pearl was was a bit of a problem , because they are usually quiet large so I did have to hunt to find a smaller size. The ring was marked urgent and was being boxed up when David sent a note that baby June was here.

We had a great experience working with Shelley from Goldworks. I had never used Custommade before, but I decided to take a chance. Although I was initially hesitant because I live in Minneapolis, MN and Shelley is in Texas, I decided commissioned Shelley based on her thorough knowledge and kind manner to reproduce a gold ring with a black pearl for my wife to celebrate the birth of our second daughter. The ring was based on my wife's grandmothers vintage ring. I provided Shelley with some "ok" images and she recreated a ring that was a perfect match, in fact, I'd say it was better than the original because she used a better quality pearl. My wife was in tears when I presented it to her.
Shelley provided a proposal that was within my budget and lower than many others. She explained her process and kept me updated with progress. She quoted 3-4 weeks for the entire project and turned it around in less than 2. I would recommend using Shelley to anyone. She was not only a pro and super responsive, but a joy to work / communicate with along the way. 5 stars for sure.
