1 month waiting, scarce communication at best, ended up with refund due to family issues..understandable but seller left me in an impossible situation. I do not doubt for a second that she is a brilliant jewellery maker, but my disappointment is huge. Get detailed schedule if you are planning to purchase.

The ring is sadly underwhelming. The listing photo has been significantly zoomed making the stones appear larger than they are. When, in fact, they are no larger than the tip of a pen. Unfortunately, because I asked for the ring to be made in a size to fit my desired finger instead of purchasing the exact ring listed (the only one in the shop) it is considered a custom order and not eligible for return or exchange. An unfortunate fact (and crafty loophole, I think) as not everyone's finger is a size 7. It would be nice if I could post a picture along with my review to give an idea of what this ring actually looks like, but there's no option for that.

About

VaLa Jewellery

After graduating with Honours from George Brown City College, Jewellery Arts Program in 2007, I was working as a Goldsmith and a sales representative for a few years.
Although I liked working for other people, I felt that I could do more.

In March of 2007, I opened VaLa Jewellery & Repair and never looked back!
I love my job and the clients I get to work with!

Today, I work from my studio that is located in Downtown Toronto where clients can come by and work with me in person! We discuss design ideas and custom projects as well as jewellery repairs.

If you would like to discuss an idea or project you have in mind, you are welcome to do so! Please note, for security reasons, it would be best to make an appointment with me by calling the number below:
647-848-0989

I will be happy to provide you with my address and arrange a meeting!

I look forward to seeing you!!

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read a little bit about me. I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely Yours,
