Working with a jeweler as talented, patient and affable as James is an absolute pleasure. I purchased an oval diamond engagement ring in 18ct yellow gold and it couldn't have been further from the the daunting, nightmarish experience you hear/read about online. James' bespoke service means that not only do you end up with the perfect ring, but you also learn as much as you want about the process along the way too. I couldn't recommend working with James more, in fact, I've already referred him to two friends who I know have had the same experience I have!
Thank you so much I absolutely love it. I have been looking for the right pendant for so long and this is it! I won’t be taking it off!
One very happy customer
I couldn't be happier with my beautiful engagement ring.. James created exactly what I had dreamed of and more. I loved the process from start to finish, and now I have a gorgeous piece of jewellery to show for it.
Everything about Veale Jewellery exceeded my already high expectations. James made my now fiancée's engagement ring and we couldn't be happier!
Apart from a few Google's, I knew very little about engagement rings and diamonds, having initially visited James with a simple brief - a bespoke, hand crafted, non-High Street, very special piece.
James and I discussed various different styles and he proposed multiple designs based on the brief of what I initially thought I wanted. James took onboard everything I said as we worked together developing the perfect piece he understood I was after. Along the way James showed me stones he had available and sourced more, helping me choose the all important perfect 4C's diamond.
The ring was manufactured in James' private workshop, with elements being supplied and sourced from specialist professionals he knows well. James sent me regular updates and photos of the piece being made and physically showed me when I visited. A personal touch with photos that deserve framing. Certainly nothing I could get on the High Street!
After all the secret meet ups and "late night's working", I took my fiancee to be, on a once in a lifetime trip and asked the special once in a lifetime 4 word question. Needless to say, she said yes. I couldn't recommend James and Veale Jewellery higher. His professionalism, experience and craftsmanship is second to none. A journey which should never be repeated deserves something like Veale Jewellery. Thanks James! My missus is still smiling.
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for creating my engagement ring just as I (and apparently Matt!) had imagined it. I’m actually at a loss for what to say - which doesn’t happen often - but basically I can’t believe you have both been in touch for the past couple of months in secret and I had no idea!! So secretive!! We even spoke on the Thursday (when I believe Matt received the ring) before we headed down to Devon where, unbeknown to me, the main event would happen! I was really pleased to find out that Matt had come to you and you were the one to have made my ring. It’s so special and I LOVE IT.
I would highly recommend James. Flawless end-to-end service from the initial chat, through to designs, amends and then a fabulous finished engagement ring. Thanks James!
James is an absolute artist. His design and finished product is outstanding. He makes you feel like you're the only person in the world. Wonderful experience and now a friend. Thank you James!
James has been amazing throughout the process of making me a ring. Excellent communication through and fantastic end product. Would definitely recommend and use again.
James is an absolute artist. His design and finished product is outstanding. He makes you feel like you're the only person in the world. Wonderful experience and now a friend. Thank you James!
James understood what we were looking for and designed our beautiful ring with our budget in mind too. We are so happy with the end product. Highly recommend.
James made my engagement ring with my partner and it is amazing. The detail in the setting is so granular and stunning. One of the white diamonds is from my mothers engagement ring, making it extra special. Thank you James, I’ll definitely recommend you to friends & family.
Thank you Veale Fine Jewellery for creating the most perfect 18ct signet ring with a family crest engraving for my birthday. The consultation with James was painless and he was able to custom-design exactly what I wanted, ensuring that the signet ring was slim enough for a small female finger, with the sort of quality that will last for generations to come. Despite the customisation, the price was competitive. The ring was absolutely perfect on arrival and I have just had compliment after compliment. No hesitation in recommending you. Thank you!
James and his team came highly recommended and they didn’t disappoint.
His personal and professional service from start to finish made this one in a lifetime experience unforgettable, for all the right reasons.
My fiancé and I are so pleased with the end result and will be back for our wedding bands.
James was an absolute delight to work with from day 1. I sent him some broad specifications and an indication of budget, and he was able to work up several designs that fit the requirements. Despite several instances of me changing my mind and asking for completely different specs at times, he was very patient with me, and we arrived at a final design that looked perfect. A year after it was first purchased, he kindly agreed to make some small changes to it at my request against a very challenging schedule, which included a lot of effort from him that he really shouldn't have had to put in but he did it without any complaints. The end result is a beautiful ring that has made the recipient very happy!
The recipient says, 'It's sparkly!'
Thanks very much, James! You've gone beyond the call of duty with this one.
Great craftsmanship, could not be happier with the final product. I always knew what I wanted so that’s make the process easy but along the way James gave valuable advice now and there. Fantastic source of diamonds and the Mrs is delighted. Highly recommend, especially looking for bespoke.
James was great from start to finish assisting both in terms of design & diamond choice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy a bespoke engagement ring.
Truly excellent - zero stress, the ring looks great, she loves it! Highly recommended
James was a fantastic person to work with. He was able to turn my waffle of an email about design into several images for a bespoke engagement ring. We were able to talk on the phone and he really understood my thought behind the ring.
The quality of workmanship is simply splendid and the quality and value of the diamond is bar far the best I could find in my price range.
James went above and beyond my tight timescales and my fiancé is besotted by the ring. I cannot thank James enough and would recommend him to anyone looking for bespoke quality at a great price.
Fab service from James would highly suggest dropping him a line
The service James provided was absolutely first class. After discussing with him the style of ring I had in mind, he provided a concept design that exceeded expectations in every way. From there he helped me source the perfect stones for the ring and sent me regular updates / photos of it being made (one of the best perks of going down the bespoke route).
The icing on the cake for me was that my now-fiancee liked a photo a ring being made on Instagram and had no idea that it was hers (something she now very much enjoys telling people).
Needless to say she said yes and has since been inundated with compliments on her ring. I can't recommend James enough. Not only is his workmanship second to none, you know that the ring you had made is completely unique and so much more personal than anything you would get 'off the shelf' from your local jeweller.
We subsequently asked James to make our wedding rings - both of which are absolutely superb.
I would strongly advise anyone looking to propose (or indeed with any jewellery requirements) to get in contact with James. You will not find the same standard of service anywhere else.
James crafted a wonderful ring for us and we couldn't be happier with it. James' skill and experience made us feel very comfortable at every stage; creating and tweaking the original CAD design, helping find the perfect diamonds to go together, keeping us updated throughout the crafting process and finally tweaking the ring size. All of these elements came together to produce the most fantastic ring which we couldn't be happier with. The design and craftsmanship is exceptionaland being part of the creation process was a great experience; James comes highly recommended.
James helped me to design and visualise a really special ring. The design visuals and mock-ups helped to understand what the final design would look like. The final product is brilliant, thanks for your help James. You have been really helpful and supportive through the entire progress. Look forward to working together on the wedding bands.
Such a pleasure working with James on both our engagement and wedding bands. Incredible attention to detail , James listening to every single request and kept us so involved every step of the way. I'm so in love with my ring, it's more beautiful then I could have every imagined.
Following a referral from two previous clients, who both had exquisite engagement rings made bespoke, I embarked with James on the design of an eternity ring for my wife.
James was very happy to meet at my place of work as we progressed through the process and struck me as particularly friendly and open as we talked through options. The design was shaped around my budget and personal stylistic preferences, though James helped to steer things in the right direction by sharing his extensive knowledge and experience to hone the design. A silver cast prototype helped me to visualise the final design before any diamonds were set or gold cast, which was very helpful.
Thank you so much! Absolutely love the ring!! Compliments my engagement ring perfectly.
The process of redesigning my heirloom engagement ring with James' advice and subsequent craftsmanship was a real delight. His computer aided designs really helped us to 'see' rather than simply imagine how the ring would look and this was a valuable part of the process. James is friendly, professional and efficient. Highly recommended.
I can’t thank James enough for his help designing the perfect ring and guiding me through the process. I had complete faith in his expertise from start to finish.
He patiently collaborated with me for months ensuring that the custom crafted engagement ring was exactly what I wanted. Nothing was too much trouble for James.
He made the whole experience so special and my fiancé receives daily compliments on how beautiful the ring is. I cant recommend him enough.
We first met James at the Sheene Mill Wedding fair and we could tell straight away he had very good knowledge and expertise in his work and was easy to talk to. James invited us to his workshop where we looked through different styles and he advised us on how we could personalise our design ideas and bring them to life. The whole process from start to finish has been smooth and professional, we have loved seeing our vision come to life and James’ service has been excellent. We look forward to wearing our bespoke rings on our special day!
We asked James for help to design a bespoke wedding ring after being recommended by a friend - he was super quick to respond and came to visit us the following week. In the consultation he helped bring my ideas to life to design a band to fit the unusual shape of my engagement ring. Along with this, James helped my husband realise that not all men's wedding rings are plain and gave us plenty of suggestions of designs.
A few weeks later, we received both our beautiful rings! James was professional but friendly and very helpful, and went the extra mile to make sure our rings were exactly what we wanted. Being bespoke, they added a special touch to our wedding day - I'm sure my husband will contact James when he's ready to design an eternity ring... hint hint! :)
James not only crafted the most incredible bespoke engagement ring for me but taught me so much along the way! The service James offers is Awesome!
I had no clue on the design I/ she wanted, he truly has the patience of a saint and guided me to the perfect piece, you would not get this level of service with a shop bought ring. 10/10 thank you so much James!!
Words cannot express how happy we are with the ring. The whole process was professional and attentive with expert advice available throughout. It was so special having an input on the design and has made any shop bought jewellery out of the question! The craftsmanship is second to none and the integration of computer aided design throughout the process was incredible. Nothing would have matched up to this ring and we are eternally grateful that James Veale did such an incredible job and exceeded every expectation in every aspect. Needless to say the wedding bands will also be made by him!!
I contacted James to help me design an engagement ring. He took my sketch and created a beautiful ring loved by me and my now fiancée.
I recently bought a ring from James and couldn't be happier with the service or the outcome. He was very helpful throughout and a pleasure to work with.
Over the moon with my beautiful engagement ring. It is perfect in every way and James is one of the most talented people you will come across. Very much looking forward to designing our wedding bands next year with him.
I cannot recommend James highly enough. I had zero clue about what it was I wanted, but with James' guidance he enabled me to design the perfect engagement ring for a very special person.
James' knowledge and expertise is top notch. He takes great pride in his work and that is evident by looking at the stunning end product.
Thanks for making it so easy
I just wanted to say I'm completely thrilled with the design you have created thank you so much. I absolutely love every bit of it and so does my husband so that's a relief!!
I want to say how amazing the service you have provided has been, keeping me up to date and I have felt relaxed and reassured every step of the way so thank you for that.
James works with you to imagine and design your ideal jewellery with skill and care. It is very personal and a great service. The finished item looks perfect - we are delighted! Thank you
"We first contacted James when we were looking for a unique, bespoke engagement ring. Our trips to Hatton Garden left us feeling uninspired - I didn't want an off the shelf ring that was the same as 1000s of others; I wanted something that represented us as a couple and that was really special. From the minute we met James we knew he was the right person to make the ring. He took time to get to know us, talked to me about what we liked and drew up several ideas. He then even 3D printed the ring to make sure it was perfect before he started to make it! The finished result is truly AMAZING and we couldn't be happier. I get comments all the time about my ring and those who know me said it couldn't be more 'ME!' It's stunning. We can't recommend James Veale enough and we've since purchased a necklace from him too, which I adore. If you want a genuine, friendly and professional jeweller that you can trust then James is your man!"
Thank you so much for being such an important part of our engagement and wedding. You were part of the original secret, the designer of beautiful wedding jewellery.
The final ring was exactly whet i wanted and it was easy to work with James, who clearly cares about his craft. Everything was handled professionally and completed exactly to the time frame that was required.
Thank you James
I am in love with the engagement ring James made for me with my fiancé! It is so beautiful, I have received so many compliments! I am looking forward to working with him on creating our wedding bands!
Such a wonderful experience; being able to design something truly unique and beautiful for our engagement. The best service and craftsmanship. I highly recommend James to anyone looking for the perfect piece of unique jewellery.
We bought a fair-trade gold wedding band from James last year, and found that he went above and beyond advising and helping us choose. We never felt under pressure throughout and it was a pleasure to buy from James. It is very clear he enjoys his work and it shows in the results. Highly recommended!
I love seeing your new creations on your page and feel very lucky to have one of your works of art on my finger!! I stare at it everyday and love it more each time! (still loving her ring one year on!)
I am so delighted with the beautiful ring James crafted for me using my late Mum's solitaire. James was a pleasure to work with and the result speaks volumes for his passion and craftsmanship. Thanks so much.
Thank you James for my gorgeous gold 'Sophia and Finley' necklace. Such a special piece. I love it ☺️
James recently made my bespoke wedding ring; a beautiful half eternity ring designed perfectly to fit with my engagement ring. It looks stunning and I can't wait to wear it! I highly recommend James; he took my brief idea and created the perfect wedding band for me. Great service, great quality. We will definitely be using his skills and expertise in the future! Thank you James!
"James Veale Bespoke recently designed and made a stunning engagement ring for me. After seeing examples of his exceptional work I knew that I wanted to use James for this very special piece of jewellery. I could not be happier with how the ring turned out- a true testament to James' incredible eye for design and ideas and his attention to detail. From the initial phone calls and discussions of ideas to the day I collected the ring, the design and construction process was smooth, enjoyable and exciting. I cannot recommend James Veale highly enough and I will be straight back to him for my next piece of jewellery."
Along with my band, we were both thrilled with the quality of the finished products and couldn't have got a better and more tailored service or finish from a traditional jewellery retailer. James helped explain every step of his process and was brilliant to talk to throughout. Hopefully I don't have to use James again for wedding rings but would highly recommend to anyone else.
Collected my Partners Wedding band today. Designed as a suprise for him on our wedding day. James Veale is amazing, he made my design a reality. Lovely chap who is great at what he does, I can highly recommend!! I can't wait for my Mr to see his ring on our wedding day. Thanks again James, I love it!!
I was Absolutely delighted with the bespoke engagement ring created for me by James. I will definitely be returning for other items of jewellery in the future.
Excellent service and very friendly, Strongly recommended.
I got given a beautiful engagement ring, designed and made by James.
It's is an amazing design that is very unique and personal to me with a pearl and butterflies! Everyone who has seen the ring so far loves it and it's amazing features, I know it will be loved forever. It is a very good quality product and James was very friendly and accommodating meeting us in convenient places.
"As a couple we could not be more delighted with the exquisite engagement ring and the intimate service that James provided. The intricacy and unique detail in the ring is simply stunning and the outcome exceeded all expectations. Without hesitation we would recommend all jewellery requirements to be done via James Veale Jewellery. Love the future Joneses!!"
"James designed an incredible engagement ring which my fiancé loves. I'm so pleased with the finished ring and the design is very bespoke and personal to us. My ideas were brought to life through consultation with James, making it a true one-off! Couldn't be better. Now we are planning our wedding bands with James."
"James, I just wanted to say how very happy I am with the design of my beautiful diamond ring. I am going to wear it to a party tomorrow evening and I'm sure it will be much admired."
"One horse race received with thanks! Simply stunning, it's just what I was after."
"James has produced two bespoke pieces for me which were delivered on time and to budget and which exceeded my expectations in design and quality. James is extremely talented and can be relied on to produce something different and exciting."
"I literally can't thank you enough for making and designing me the most perfect ring. I absolutely love it. I still can't believe how big it is. I was so shocked! But seriously every detail is perfect. Thank you so much for all your time and effort. I'm so so lucky and I will treasure it forever."
"I just wanted to say that I think the signet ring is fantastic, thank you so much for making it."
Delighted with the gorgeous, tiny, delicate silver charms James carefully crafted for my 'Oma' necklace, inspired by my grandkiddiewinks. Theo's moon & Bradley's sun now join Lara's rose, Isla's dragonfly and Seth's & Ben's stars. Absolutely lovely workmanship, done exactly as I imagined them! Something to treasure forever. Many thanks!
"James was so professional and knowledgeable, creating exactly what I was hoping for with my wedding band - can't recommend him enough! Thank you for making my stunning ring - I LOVE it!"
