Neil at NJ Geddes fine jewellery, helped design and create the most perfect engagement ring for my now fiancée, Katie!

After asking Katie's Dad back in October last year, I had considered other more mainstream jewellers to create the engagement ring but after hearing my Dad's positive experiences with Neil, we arranged to meet to discuss the brief.

The brief on this occasion was to create a brand new ring incorporating diamonds from two of Katie's Grandma's rings. A hugely sentimental piece to create which meant the trust really had to be there that Neil would do the business.

After talking through various design ideas and showing me pieces with the options I could have, we agreed on a design that would be created over the Christmas period. There was never any doubt after the first conversation that Neil has the skill and experience to really bring to life the vision I had of a perfect ring that incorporated the stones of special significance.

After booking the bespoke experience in, the challenge was set to have the ring made and ready for collection before Christmas 2023 and after regular updates on progress, I collected it with time to spare!

And wow, what a fantastic job!

The ring is exactly what I was looking for and what we had designed just a few weeks earlier had been brought to life! The perfect combination of the sentimental stones with a platinum band, it’s safe to say I was blown away.

I proposed on New Year's Eve and Katie loves the ring as much as I do!
With such an important ring being created, we both could not be happier with the end result and would recommend NJ Geddes to anyone looking to add that extra special sentiment to any jewellery gift. Thanks so much Neil!

My fiancée and I recently enjoyed N J Geddes' bespoke Jewellery Experience at Grantley Hall, and it was truly exceptional. From start to finish, Neil guided me through the process with incredible expertise and professionalism. The personal touch and attentive guidance throughout the entire process made us feel truly valued and ensured that every detail was tailored to our needs.

The location of Grantley Hall provided the perfect backdrop for the experience. With Neil's help, my fiancée was able to create a unique design for her ring, featuring stunning stones that weren't easy to find. And despite the challenges, Neil went the extra mile time and again to make sure everything was perfect.

The final product was beyond our expectations, and we couldn't be happier. I highly recommend N J Geddes jewellers to anyone looking for exceptional quality and service. Neil and his team's attention to detail and expertise in their craft ensure an unforgettable experience that has led to a stunning piece of jewellery that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Thanks Neil!

I booked a jewellery experience at Grantley Hall for my wife’s big birthday. With Neil’s guidance we managed to keep it a secret and the surprised look on her face made the day magical.
Neil was well organised and friendly and always very professional. With his assistance, great knowledge and a glass of champagne, a bespoke pair of diamond earrings were gradually designed giving her a unique pair to complement an existing pendant. As we sat there finishing our drink Neil sourced a matching pair of top quality diamonds.

I had secret conversations with Neil before our meeting at the hotel so he could be fully prepared to develop our ideas and then afterwards to ensure we got exactly the earrings my wife wanted.
When we went to his shop to pick up the finished handmade earrings we were not disappointed, the earrings were stunning and the experience was more like visiting an old friend rather than a shop, we were not rushed and again Neil and the surroundings made my wife feel very special.
The earrings were beautifully presented in a box tied with ribbon, the diamond certificates and valuation paperwork completed the package and of course we had time for a drink and a long chat.

From start to finish everything was perfect. The hotel was exceptional and booking this package gave a good discount on the two day stay. A five star jeweller and a five star hotel.

Again a big thank you from both of us for making it a very special experience.

We met Neil through the Grantley Hall jewellery experience and were impressed by his warmth, professionalism and knowledge from the very start.
The process of designing my eternity ring with Neil and my husband in the beautiful setting of Grantley Hall was such a special and unique experience, one I'll never forget.

After a couple of follow up conversations and a hand drawn sketch of the design sent via email, we had the call from Neil to say my ring was ready. We went to his studio in Boston Spa to collect it and were impressed by the warm welcome, including some delicious freshly ground coffee.

The 'big reveal' did not disappoint. Neil created the most beautiful rose gold and diamond eternity ring to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It took my and Alan's breath away.

Thank you Neil for all you did to create such a stunning piece of jewellery as well as making us feel so comfortable and reassured throughout the process. You've provided us with very happy memories for many years to come.

Grantley Hall are lucky to have found You!

V. Coulter

We highly recommend N J Geddes Fine jewellery. Neil visited us at home with a portfolio of his work and some rings to look at. It was immediately clear that his jewellery is of a very high standard. A style was chosen and soon afterwards he called to say that a fine vivid green Zambian Emerald had been identified. A few weeks later he delivered the ring to us and it is absolutely beautiful. The entire service from start to finish was perfect.

J. Baker

"Neil was fantastic through the entire process, from the outset he was interested in us, our story and who we were as people. He is someone who takes great pride in bringing happiness to people through his jewellery. His knowledge and advice helped me navigate an area I had next to zero knowledge of. Assisting me in getting the highest quality ring for the available budget. The finished ring surpassed all expectations, mine and my partners, and was the icing on the cake to what was a very special day. It is safe to say my fiancée is extremely happy. Thank you so much.”

Mr A. Champaneri, DLA Piper LLP

"Having thoroughly researched the type of engagement ring I wanted and seeing many examples on the high street, I needed a more bespoke solution combining a number of key features for the diamond, ring setting and ring band. Neil provided the personal service that I found extremely valuable in creating a bespoke ring to my choosing including sourcing me the perfect diamond. My now Wife still gazes at her ring in admiration and I can't give a better testimony than that. I highly recommend Neil and the tailored advice and service he provides."

Mrs T. Blakey

After losing some stones from my engagement ring, and after 25years of marriage, I was very reluctant to replace my ring with a new one. After meeting with Neil, discussing with him the sentimental value of my original ring, he very cleverly came up with a new, modern design. I’m absolutely thrilled, I have the original stone in a new setting with sentiment of my original engagement ring. Thank you to N J Geddes Fine Jewellery.

It was a huge pleasure to work with him!"

Mr B. Nolson

"I have trusted Mr Geddes with several thousand pounds at a time in deposits, he has never once failed to meet a commitment or deadline. As a result of this I have and will continue to recommend him to all my family, friends, and anyone else requiring jewellery of any description. N.J.

Mr P. Griffin, White & Case, International Law Firm

"We met Neil at a classic car event and that was a fine, chance meeting for us. We have now purchased two pieces of bespoke jewellery, both of which are just right. He has been understanding and attentive in helping us towards just what we wanted and has then been unstinting in his time to be sure that the jewellery not only looks beautiful but is first class and also practical. He is happy to come to us and nothing seems too much trouble."

Mr D. Cooper, Entrepreneur and Coach

"Neil always does what he says he's going to do and over delivers. What really surprised me most of all about his unique service was the fantastic value and huge savings we made versus using a high end high street jeweller."

Ms S. Scarr,
Priory Cottages

"I could not have been more pleased with my experience when buying our wedding rings. Neil was flexible with times to meet us and went into depth about the diamonds we chose. Thank you for your great advice on diamonds and settings – we couldn’t be happier with our wedding rings."

Ms M. Fraser

"We were delighted with the service we received from Neil when we were choosing my engagement ring. He took time to get to know us and his expertise really helped us find the perfect design within our budget. Neil kept us up to date during its manufacture and went out of his way to make sure it was delivered safely - all the way to Aberdeen! Fantastic bespoke service - we would definitely recommend Neil to anyone looking for that special piece of jewellery."

Dr F Chowdhury

“Unimpressed with the high street jewellers' offering of engagement rings, I approached Neil with a commission for a bespoke lady's engagement ring.

The whole process of design, sourcing, manufacture, and pricing was explained in an unambiguous and transparent manner. In fact, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Neil on this project. He has an instinctive understanding of bespoke jewellery, which was immensely helpful to someone in my position!

My fiancée was completely bowled over by the stunning beauty of the engagement ring, and it has been a total success! I could not recommend Neil highly enough.”
