This ring is every bit as beautiful as I knew it would be, and I’m thrilled with how the monograming came out!

Beautiful ring that exceeded my expectations. Emily has beautiful jewelry and is helpful, patient, and thoughtful. Have bought from Emily before and will buy from her again.

As always, Jean Jean went above and beyond expectations. I wanted to upgrade my cachet from brass to 10k gold and Emily accommodated my request and shipping was quick. My package was wrapped as if it was a special gift given by a friend. So lovely. The cachet itself is gorgeous and exactly what I was looking for to commemorate the one year anniversary of my hearing loss. Absolutely perfect. This is my second purchase from Jean Jean and both experiences were very good ones. I highly recommend Emily and Jean Jean for unique, high quality vintage jewelry you will treasure for years to come. 💙

Love the piece, got here quick! Little scuffs all around the bottom half of the border, but I’ll hopefully be able to buff out

Working with Emily was such a great experience! The ring I ordered was exactly as described and as photographed and I absolutely love it. AND I’m already a return customer. She helped me find the perfect little gold band with my wedding anniversary date inscribed inside. This is my new favorite shop!

Absolutely stunning—shipped (no pun intended) promptly, beautifully packaged and exactly as I imagined with the custom gem.

I don’t think it’s possible to be disappointed in something from JJV! The bracelet itself is beautiful and feels luxurious (I can’t wait to add the rest of my charms to it), but the whole experience of purchasing was wonderful. Emily kindly accommodated a custom request I made (and the customization is perfect), and kept me up to date on my order. Everything arrived safely and was a delight to open. Thank you!
Emily "Duff" responded on Jun 15, 2022
Oh it looks like it belongs on your wrist (and so it does!) I am glad that you like the feel of the bracelet and I think you will enjoy it more and more as you add to it over time. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this photo and thoughtful review.
