TESTIMONIALS

It was an absolute pleasure to work with David. He made my engagement ring and our wedding bands using some gold of my mam's, all during Level 5 lockdown. We communicated over the phone and WhatsApp to plan the rings. David brought our ideas to life with sketches and gave guidance throughout the process. I'm absolutely in love with my engagement ring and would recommend David to anybody interested in creating a unique piece of jewellery.

David was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I ordered a gold band stacker ring as a gift and he made the whole process from ordering the ring to delivery seamless. David also gave some really good advice on the style and shape of the ring so it would stack correctly alongside my wife's wedding ring.

He was also able to provide a few snaps of the making of the ring. This made the gift that extra special as it added a real personal touch.

I would highly recommend him as a jeweller and will definitely be buying more items from him in the future.

My wife agrees.

From start to finish I was thrilled with the level of professionalism and the quality of service I received. Dave is clearly very passionate about his work and very skilled. He took on board my requests and had some lovely ideas. He genuinely cared about the sentimental piece of jewellery I commissioned and ensured that it was made to reflect that sentiment. Being able to remember my beloved father through this bespoke jewellery is truly priceless. Thanks so much Dave.

David is an absolute pleasure to deal with and made a beautiful piece of jewellery exactly how I imagined it! David will go above and beyond to make sure you're really happy with the design. Looking forward to working on the next piece! Needless to say I would highly recommend! Thanks David!

Want to recommend David Wilson Jewellery in Kilkenny. He produced an amazing piece of jewellery as a present for our daughter. He designed and made it himself. Throughout the whole process he consulted with me at every stage of the design and was just an absolute pleasure to deal with. The piece of jewellery arrived as promised and we love it. Definitely check David out if you're looking for a professional and thoughtful person who designs amazing jewellery.

My partner and I asked David Wilson Jewellery for two wedding bands, we liked the look of his work from his Instagram page. We had a lot of ideas of different designs that we might like but were not really sure about anything from the design to the metal, we talked through several ideas with David on a couple of occasions. He sketched out some ideas and it was clear he was on the same page as us and we immediately trusted his judgement. He translated our vague, unusual requests into an idea we both loved!

We have a love of nature and the outdoors and David was able to capture this with a subtle but beautiful bird design into the two rings. We are both pretty fussy so were a little bit nervous getting rings in the first place, we have been married a month and we both love the rings made by David. We feel like we have something that is both traditional and unique. David is a gentleman, a pleasure to deal with and an extremely talented jeweller. We would highly recommend him!

David recently sourced and replaced a sapphire for my engagement ring. He provided me with a good variety of stones to choose from and was helpful in advising me to choose the perfect one. I am delighted with the end result - my ring looks like new and the workmanship in the repair is excellent! Would highly recommend David, he was a pleasure to deal with!

Great service from start to finish. David couldn't do enough, from the design phase, to the production (including cool video on him making it) to ensuring it landed here safely in the uk... and it goes without saying the jewellery was amazing and my wife loved it...

David Wilson creates beautiful bespoke jewellery at affordable prices for those who appreciate the time and skill involved.
David has crafted many pieces for my extended family, ranging from unique engagement and wedding rings, elegant earrings, precious stone rings and pendants, to an incredible set of heirloom pieces for 10 grandchildren! The most recent addition is a stunning silver bracelet designed to compliment a previous commission.
Each creation is a truly unique one-off piece of the highest quality and craftsmanship.
After an initial consultation, David produces a set of sketches showing the different designs, materials and finishes that are possible, including the cost of each option. He is happy to advise on design elements or to suggest variations on a concept, based on his experience of working with the different materials being incorporated into any piece.
David's talent in crafting the chosen option is evident from the stunning end result itself and from the photo log that he provides, showing the different stages throughout the creative process to the finished article. When seen by others, the jewellery always draw comments of admiration and enquiries as to origin.
If you are looking for that special present for someone, the elegant presentation packaging compliments the jewellery perfectly and, should the commissioned piece happen to be a surprise gift that may require subsequent adjustment for size, David will happily oblige.
The whole experience is one of comfortable perfection, from design to delivery.
David is a very talented silversmith and jeweller who provides a friendly professional service to those who value excellence in the creation of bespoke handcrafted jewellery. His incredible portfolio of previously commissioned pieces is true testament to this.
I can unreservedly recommend David Wilson Jewellery to anyone seeking something truly unique and special.

David was fantastic to deal with. Beyond being a dedicated craftsman, he went above and beyond in terms of customer service. I can't imagine you would find a more quality service. Not to mention, his products - which carry all the same traits of passion, quality and attention to detail. I can't recommend him enough.

This was the first piece of jewellery I have ever commissioned. We wanted something special to mark a significant milestone for my mother. David was able to visualise a unique and special piece of jewellery from the conversations we had over the phone. He sent sketches showing what the necklace would look like from different angles. He made great suggestions regarding chain length and clasps that I never would have thought of. His expertise and skill in his craft really is outstanding. Thanks very much for your time, effort and skill. You were a pleasure to deal with and we won't hesitate to contact you again in the future.

I asked David to design a ring for me, but I had only the vaguest of ideas of what style. A disaster of a client I imagine! David suggested a few possibilities, and skilfully drew out what it was I wanted. He created some sketches, and I decided on one, a North Star ring. I trusted his judgement completely, and he kept in touch with me throughout the process. My ring arrived this week, and it's more beautiful than I had hoped. It's so perfect, really delicate and unique. David must be some class of a mind reader! I'm so grateful to have something so bespoke and skilfully crafted that I will have forever. Thank you David!

Myself and my fiancee Chris asked David to make us two rings - an engagement ring for me and a wedding band for Chris. I can honestly say we are thrilled with how both turned out! I'm so fussy about jewellery, so I was a little apprehensive even thinking about having something made, but I'm so glad I did. I don't know how, but David managed to incorporate every little detail I wanted into my ring and it actually couldn't be more perfect for me.
The stone in my engagement ring is a London Blue Topaz - it throws shades of blue, teal and turquoise, colours to represent our love of the sea. David incorporated a nod to French design with the beautiful Art Deco shoulders - Chris is French, so this was such a lovely feature to include. The ring feels like is a combination of both of us, which we love!

We also asked David to enlarge and repair the beautiful pearl, gold and diamond ring that Chris proposed to me with - it belonged to his mother and before that it had been passed down through generations of Chris' family; so it was really important to us to keep the ring's integrity and to ensure it was preserved for future generations. David was the only jeweller we went to who said he could enlarge it without damaging it; so, eventually I'll be able to wear it as my wedding band.

Chris' wedding band is a mix of three metals and it is so beautiful; the effect of the merged metals is a Japanese technique David uses, it's called Mokume Gane. He even incorporated a little piece of gold from the ring Chris proposed with - you can clearly see that on the inside of his band, another little nod to Chris' family.

The entire experience working with Dave was such a delight, from start to finish...and so much fun. We're just sad it's all over! We honestly can't recommend Dave highly enough. Not only is he a gentleman and an all-round sound guy, he's such a talented designer and craftsman. We feel so lucky to have such unique rings that will forever have meaning and importance to us - pieces we will be so proud to wear forever ... till death do us part!! :) Merci beaucoup, Dave.

We met with David in Kilkenny and he was extremely helpful and informative about the process and selection. The contact throughout was easy and effortless. When our rings arrived a few weeks later, we were thrilled with the result, attention to detail and service. We would highly recommend David’s jewellery , he is very talented.

I worked very closely with David and was a nervous client as my expectations were unreasonably high! To say that David delivered my vision would be an understatement. It is the most beautiful ring I have ever laid my eyes on and I was speechless when I first saw it.
Somehow with David's incredible eye for design he managed to create something that is unique yet completely timeless, a statement piece that is eye catchingly beautiful but yet has an understated elegance.
David is so gifted at what he does, an artist, and I can't thank him enough for his attention to the smallest of details and above all his craftsmanship.
His time, care and patience is unparalleled and throughout the process it was very clear that his priority was to create a piece that I would adore for a lifetime. I feel very lucky to own and wear one of David Wilson's amazing pieces every day.

My engagement ring was missing it's emerald and a couple of it's small diamonds so I contacted David to see if he could do anything with it. David was a joy to work with. He's very patient. David showed me several emeralds and and together we chose a beautiful replacement emerald and small diamonds. The ring now looks like it is brand new ( it is 30 years old ) after his restoration work which, as well as replacing the stones, involved some work on the gold band. I'm very, very happy with David's work and highly recommend him.

We first worked with Dave when designing our wedding rings back in 2016. Dave was very helpful in the advice he gave us. We were extremely pleased with his work, so much so, we have been commissioning pieces from him ever since. Dave is a highly skilled craftsman and his eye for detail and creativity has continuously left us delighted in any of the work he has done for us.

David was a dream to work with, he helped create and design wedding rings for my husband and I. Planning a wedding is pretty stressful but this part was honestly the easiest aspect of the whole event. David really is all kinds of wonderful, there was zero pressure or stress, we could play around with different ideas and designs with ease. Whatever we were thinking David was able to accommodate us. My wedding ring was custom made to fit around my engagement ring, it was so exciting to see our visions come to life. It was transformed from a little ring made of green wax to an amazing piece of artwork. Anytime I needed to contact David he was there 100% of the time. I really couldn’t recommend David highly enough between his skill and personality you won’t find any better.

After the death of our Father, David turned his Gold Cufflinks into Pendants and placed his Ashes inside them. The Pendants were gifts for my Mother and Sister for their 60th and 30th Birthdays. Although matching, they vary slightly for a personal touch. David was very Creative and Respectful throughout the Process. He is a true Professional Craftsman.

From my initial text to David and right up until the final reveal of the engagement ring, he was such a patient and helpful expert of his craft.

I know David since we were 6 years old and when I started my research on rings i just knew he was the right person for this one time life decision. Picking the perfect ring.

Within minutes of our first chat he had exactly what I wanted in his head and from then on he steered me in the direction towards a beautiful piece of jewellery.
It's so important in our generation of mass production to create one off pieces that will last generations and he certainly did that.

When she saw the ring and said "yes" I'm not sure if it was for me or the ring!

David designed and fabricated the ring we gave our daughter to celebrate her completion of secondary school. Since I had an idea in mind, he worked with me creating and modifying sketches, helping me choose stones and recommending possibilities that I had not considered. The final product was a beautiful piece of art which my daughter treasures and wears on a daily basis - exactly what we had hoped. I look forward to working with David on future projects.

David created beautiful wedding rings for my husband and I. He was incredibly helpful and engaging, from honest advice on our options through to facilitating last minute changes. The rings are excellently crafted and exactly how we wanted them to be. I would highly recommend David - he is fantastic!!

David completed a number of pieces for Seán and I, including Sean's wedding ring and a very special pair of earrings for me.

In relation to Sean's wedding ring, we wished to incorporate my dad's old and very delicate wedding ring. David did such an amazing job designing and making a very special wedding ring for Seán where my dad's ring was left fully intact within it.

For a big birthday!!, Seán commissioned David to make earrings for me. He gave him some guidance on what he wanted and David came up with some amazing ideas before agreeing a design. The very special and unique element of these earrings were that they represented our family as it was then (with one baby boy) and since then a little diamond has been added to the earrings to represent our little girl, making four complete circles. I love love them and have to stop myself wearing them non stop. People are always commenting on them as they are a work of art and incredibly special to us.

David is such an amazing and very modest designer and craftsman. Not alone that, but he is a dream to work with when trying to conceptualise and agree a design. He really understands and wants to fully capture all your requirements. I have recommended Dave to so many people, I really could not recommend him more highly.

David designed and made both of our rings on the lead up to our wedding. From initial conversations to actually receiving our rings, we were blown away by the attention to detail and willingness to help. Although we were unsure what we really wanted, David was able to extract enough information right at the start to make rings that are, not only unique to us, but rings that we both love and will truly cherish. We couldn’t recommend David highly enough, a true craftsman and a gentleman to deal with.
