Testimonials

I recently lost the beautiful diamond from a ring with which I had been gifted several years ago.  Once I got through the procedure of the insurance company, I knew by whom I wanted my work to be done.  Pawel at Bijou Custom Jewellery, a local goldsmith has been our go-to man for a number of years.  Pawel replaced the diamond, secured it, polished the band and it sparkles brighter than ever.  I was so pleased with the professionalism and personal attention that Pawel gave to my unfortunate loss.

With only a verbal description and a poor photo of the original, Pawel, re- created my Grandmother’s diamond ring that had been stolen. I had been looking for months for the right setting without any luck. In only a few short weeks it was finished and it was better than I had hoped for. Many thanks to Pawel for his attention to detail and fabulous work!

This thank you is long over due. Thanks again for making my day and my “new” family heirloom.

This past summer, I was introduced to you by a mutual Friend, Art Duerksen, as I was looking for a one-of-a-king gift for my Wife’s and I’s 15th Wedding Anniversary.  I am so fortunate to have found both you and Bijou Custom Jewelry.  Not only did you help me, step-by-step, design and manufacture a stunning ring, you did it with the utmost attention to detail and personal service.  You also did it completely according to my budget and you delivered the final masterpiece done right the first time and on time.

Pawel, thank you so much for everything you did.  Your efforts truly helped Lisa and I celebrate our milestone Anniversary in style.  The process was so smooth and the results were so grand, I have to wonder why more men would not consider this type of gift-giving.

Sincerely,

-Ian P Ladd

 

When I decided it was time for a new ring that included my birthstone, I went to Pawel to share my ideas with him. Having done work for me before, Pawel knew I liked simple designs with a modern twist. I told him I wanted a wide band, but gave him creative license to see what he would come up with. I returned a week later and immediately liked what I saw. One adjustment was made to the design and together we decided on the final product. It’s a beautifully crafted ring, and I love the fact that Pawel and I were able to design it together

I wanted to have my wedding rings redesigned into a new setting and I had a good idea what I wanted.  I visited several local jewelers in Hamilton and they were mostly interested in upgrading me to a new set or having me chose a ring in the store and put my diamond in it and this is what they called custom.  I was referred to Pavel from one of my clients and he was a pleasure to work with, Pavel saw my vision and I worked with him every step of the way from the drawing to the wax, casting and then the final piece.   Pavel is a real craftsman at his art, his help and expertise in redesigning a new setting for my ring turned into a truly unique masterpiece that exceeded my expectation.  It was a great experience and if you want a custom piece I would certainly recommend Pavel.

While abroad Pawel worked on a special project with a client in Austria, and here is what he had to say:

For years I have been wanting to add to my wedding set. I was told about Bijou Custom Jewellery by a relative and dropped in to see what we could come up with. Working with a ring I already had, a beautiful gold band with diamonds was created that fully compliments my engagement ring custom made by someone else years ago. I am so pleased with the outcome and service I received and will definitely be recommending Bijou Custom Jewellery.

I had a great experience with Bijou. I met with Pawel for coffee to go over plans for the ring, and he later showed me the gems to be used and the custom wax model. From there it was an excellent turn around time, fantastic price and a friendly demeanor throughout. And of course the custom ring design came out perfect, she loves it. I would highly recommend! Thanks for everything,
