Sits nicely and is comfortable - which was a priority for my husband. Some tarnishing on the finger which is not normal for .925 stirling, but still it is a lovely ring and we love the script.

Self-taught in her craft, Buckley first sold her collection from a stall at Sydney's Paddington markets in the early 90s. Her beautiful rings drew on medieval motifs finished with personalised engraved inscriptions. The idea caught people’s imaginations. "Back then, I knew nothing about making jewellery so I went to libraries and devoured whatever books I could find on the subject and then started cutting up bits of metal around the house to explore the process. No pots and pans were safe."

More recently Buckley travelled to the US, where she studied privately with Sam Alfano, one of the world’s Master Engravers, to help explore greater refinement in her designs.

Today, the jeweller showcases her pieces at the Strand Arcade; it's a fitting environment for her other-worldly collections rendered in gold, precious gems and diamonds. Buckley says, "When I first set up at the Strand Arcade 20 years ago, I had a tiny little studio shop upstairs. I instantly fell in love with the heritage building and the juxtaposition of the old with the new. You have this incredible history and also cutting-edge designers, making it a very exciting place to work in. It is a highly glamourous and creative environment."

Buckley thrives on the use of a combination of age-old techniques and new technologies – indeed, Buckley accomplishes her extraordinary level of detail by working under a high-powered microscope. Her opulent cocktail rings and pendants, engraved with intricate designs are all meticulously carved by hand. She is inspired by her clients to create pieces that are truly meaningful to them. "I’ve focused on developing skills that enable me to both build on and break traditions and develop a unique voice," Buckley says.

We are sending from the other side of the globe- upsidedown Sydney. Australia Post, whilst very reliable, can be a little slow. Parcels can take 2-3 weeks to reach the US, occasionally less, rarely more. They usually take 2 , or a shade less. The good news is that I have not lost one parcel in more than 400 deliveries!
Additional policies and FAQs
Ring sizing is an art unto itself. Unfortunately I'm not able to hold your little hand myself, so I recommend visiting at least 2 professional jewelry stores to have your finger measured. Be aware most people have differing sizes on each hand, and weight and temperature fluctuations will affect your sizing.
These are highly unreliable methods, and if the size is incorrect you will need to purchase another ring. Apologies for this, but the onus is on you to provide an accurate size to us, as we can't double check it in any way.
