Calatrava Cross lapel pin

Today I received the Calatrava Cross lapel pin in a beautiful package. The pin is very beautiful and makes a great match with the Calatrava cufflinks I ordered from your atelier a year back. I’m very happy with my pin!

Wow, they are so beautiful!

Mrs. MD
Custom made: earrings Calatrava in red gold. And the Knoest earrings

Wow, they are so beautiful!
And no, you don’t get a return shipping haha, because the “Knoest” earrings are stunning. I must say the photo on your site shows the earrings very well. They really are what I expected them to be. I’ve been looking to buy earrings for a long time and now all of a sudden I found two pair in your shop!
I am very pleased with them.

Thank you for all the effort, commitment and the pleasant communication.

I will certainly recommend you

Nikolay Yaremko, Amsterdam
Custom made order: Open Window pendant

I have got the package. I am very happy with its contents!

(Also thank you for the box included.)

Thank you very much, I will certainly recommend you if any of my network will be interested in creating such jewellery. Hopefully, some day I will return as well.

Even more beautiful than we had hoped.

Emma
Gold ring with fire opal

For our 25th anniversary we came up with an idea for a ring. Jan and Marion have listened very carefully to our wishes. I could choose from many beautiful stones. And although we were a little late to order the ring, it was finished perfectly in time!

The ring has become even more beautiful than we had hoped.

Absolutely beautiful!

Alice Lusk, Texas, US
Repairs and the long Necklace Nature

The jewelry arrived today and everything is perfect and absolutely beautiful! The ring has my birth stone so it is even more special now.

I’m loving the earrings

Mr. Loris Guillen, Marseille, French

Hi, quick message to let you know that I just got my package, it’s all good! Know that’s I’m loving the earrings, they look even better that I thought and I am quite sure the person that I am going to offer these to is going to love them even more!

The most well made

Lydia Yik, California, US
Titanium wedding ring FOREVER

I received the titanium Forever ring a week ago. It is perfect and so beautifully made.
It is better than what we were hoping for! We looked at other rings with wood accents and your ring is the most well made with detailed quality and a beautiful seamless appearance.

Thanks for the beautiful wedding rings

Johan en Anouk Loeffen-Laurijssen, Belgium

In this way we wanted to thank you again for the beautiful wedding rings and the cuff links. The rings wear very comfortable. Since our wedding we wear them with much pleasure!”

Thank you for the perfect service

Winfried Hallerbach, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Calatrava Cross cuff links

Thank you for the perfect service and the great craftsmanship that you invested in making the silver Calatrava Cross cufflinks. They look gorgeous, you can tell they are made with love. My husband Jaap Jan van Hamburg gave them to me and they really are my favorite now. Meanwhile, a colleague of mine also ordered a pair and I would not be surprised if many more followed!

I received many compliments!

Secret

Mr. X,  Edinburgh, Scotland
Necklace Wooden Circles

Marion. Hi – my wife and I met you at Stephie’s and Simons on Saturday. You might remember – we absolutely loved your silver and wooden necklace. I’m hoping to catch you as I thought I might buy it in secret and keep it as a surprise gift for my wife for our anniversary. Are you still in Edinburgh?

Super happy!

Super happy with my beautiful earrings by my favorite atelier. Thank you!

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Marieke de Kam, Amstelveen, The Netherlands
Wedding ring Forever

The ring has arrived and is on Rik’s finger. It’s really totally what we had hoped for (also in terms of size) and he finds the ring beautiful. And since Rik is very a very critical person that is rather unique.

I am so happy that I saw the ring at “SIERAAD”. Right away it popped in my mind “I want that ring for Rik,” We both find the combination of gold and cherry fantastic. The ring has quality, both because of the craftsmanship and the concept. And that’s exactly what we read in “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance”.

I hope many people will see and experience the quality of your work. In any case, Rik will wear the ring with love and pride and if people are interested or ask where we bought the ring we will definitely tell about you!

Great coffee

Saskia Theuns and Dick Eskes, Brummen, The Netherlands
Wedding band Forever

After 25 years together, we thought it was time for a ring. We wanted something special in gold and wood. We googled and arrived at the jewelry story. Nice clean rings with just that little bit extra that we were looking for. After a visit to the studio (great coffee, Jan), the decision was quickly made. Since last week, everyone can see that we have been together for 25 years, expressed in gold and wood.

Delighted

Fennechien Maarsingh. French teacher, Niezijl, The Netherlands

I am really delighted with the result: very subtly Marion the red coral in between the jade beads! And the stunning silver closure, the necklace now lies perfectly around my neck, as intended. All in all a fine example of craftsmanship

What a Beauty

Piet van der Wildt.  Sculptor, Montfoort, The Netherlands
Bracelet Black Beauty

If I have seen something, which I find very special, I can not get it out of my mind. That’s exactly what happened after I had seen your jewelry at an exhibition at Museum de Buitenplaats. In particular, the bracelet “Black Beauty”; a beautiful combination of silver with ebony.

Over the past year I regular visited your website and finally requested additional information. When I heard there was a men’s version available; The Big Black Beauty, I could not wait any longer. The result is fantastic.

The ring shines

Jaap en Anneke Geleijn.  Aalsmeer, The Netherlands
Ring Little Leaf

Finally a message from me. Today is my birthday and I am wearing the ring.
It shines on my finger; it’s the right size! Jan thank you so much you’ve done a great job.I will wear the ring with great pleasure. Good luck with The Jewelry Story and who knows ……

 Super!

Anke Flik. Manager at Museum de Buitenplaats, Eelde, The Netherlands

Am very pleased with the purple earrings and wear them frequently. I am thinking about a necklace that will go with the earrings; but how? Only purple cubes? Are there any red? I will visit your studio soon.

A few months later … The necklace is really beautiful! I am so happy! I’m sure it will become one of my favorite for all seasons, just like the earrings! The closure is superb!

Speechless

Fedderik van der Mei,. Retired farmer, Wijnjewoude, The Netherlands.

A gift for life. It is only given once and the sentimental value is infinitely greater than the price. Our breath was taken away at the sight of something so beautiful. This precious jewel enshrined the commitment in our family.

Therefore, I’ll like to thank you for your boundless energy and creativity, refuted in this unique Christening spoon, which is indeed a gift for life.

Dazzling

Mr. and Mrs. Prop, Pulheim, Germany.

Thanks for sending the ring. It looks dazzling on my finger! Our daughter Inge is very happy with her bracelet, it fits just fine. Our daughter Fleur enjoys her earrings and gets many positive comments about them.

Thank you!

Geoffrey Weston, Londen U.K.

Received safely. They are beautiful. Thank you!

Titanium artwork

Olaf Burlage. Architect, The Netherlands
Silver napkin holder

In my opinion the napkin ring is a highly refined extract of the Guggenheim-museum in Bilbao. The deformation and the displacement of the silver is a wonderful translation of the lines as it occurs in the facade of the Guggenheim. The three sides that contrast in their matte and glossy finish make clear that this is the napkin ring representing the titanium artwork by Frank Gehry.

I am delighted to receive this gift and I have great admiration for the makers.

Thanks again for everything!

Isabelle Cazalles, Lille, France

Remember us? Well it took me quite some time but I wanted to send you a picture of us at our wedding day and a picture of the beautiful wedding ring you made for my husband! Thanks again for everything

Many thanks

Mr. X, Los Altos, California, U.S.A.

Got it yesterday, it came out very nice, both my wife and I really liked the necklace. Many thanks, it’s been a pleasure working with you! PS. the round box is very cool too.

A few weeks later… I’m Eve, the daughter of Ilya, who received that pendant as a graduation gift. I just wanted to thank you for such a beautiful necklace! Thank you so much! Cheers, Eve Minkin

OH MYYYYY GOOOOOOOD!!!!

Isabelle Cazalles, Lille, France

We’ll make sure to send you pictures of our wedding thanks again for everything. OH MYYYYY GOOOOOOOD!!!! It is so so so beautiful, you can’t imagine how fond of this ring we are. It is so gorgeous! We really, really, really love it and I can’t thank you enough.

Cool Grandma!

Mrs. Jacobs. Retired teacher, Oestgeest, The Netherlands

This afternoon, the necklace and the ring arrived, very neatly packed and cared for. Everything just fine. The necklace is great, as purple as I had it in mind. I wonder what Johahnette wil say, if she finds me a cool grandma now? The ring is beautiful. In short, I am again very happy, thank you very much.

A real jewel

Ingrid van der Geest. Managing director at Pit Concept & Copy, Leeuwarden, The Netherlands

It is a real jewel! I just like you to know that I very much enjoy wearing my new ring.
I see something new in it all the time and in a subtle way the ring attracts attention.
Proudly I tell people where this ring came from!

Gorgeous

A piece of art

Gerard Swüste. Radio program developer, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The candle holders just arrived. I am very happy. They are shining pieces on my table. Thanks for the fast delivery. I find it very remarkable to have a piece of art from your hands within reach. Have a good and peaceful Christmas.

The diamond from my grandmother

Emma Baines. Teacher, Waskemeer, The Netherlands

Some time ago I came to your studio and brought with me a rather dull and old fashioned necklace made of red coral. Together with a diamond I inherited the red coral from my grandmother. My request was to make this coral necklace into something wearable. By combining the red coral with other beads Marion made a beautiful necklace. She really looks at who you are and witch style is best for you. The necklace is very wearable and contemporary looking and I wear it all the time!

Well she loves it…ya’ll did good…it is perfect, thanks again, Dan

I fell in love

Christel from Germany

On Saturday I went with my boyfriend Bastian de Groot to the Galerie “dehullu”- and I fell in love with the beautiful chain out of stones you brought the same day into the shop: thank you very much, this chain gives me a lot of energy. Bastian is “Bildhauer” in Groningen- and the stones in the chain reflect for me the power of working with natural materials.

Anyway, I hope this chain will never break-and if- I’ll get in touch with you again. The woman in “dehullu” gave me a postcard with your address, so maybe in future I’ll stop by in your atelier with my German friends to see more of your art. Good success, love and peace, Christel
