What People Say

“ Our 10-year old granddaughter’s pendant, consisting of her birthstone Peridot in a gold lattice-work setting on a gold chain, combines an apparent simplicity of design with less immediately obvious detailed work , which, we believe, will make it something our granddaughter will be glad to wear throughout her life. We are grateful to Matt for his suggestions and patience in achieving this successful outcome.”

I love my ring – it was such a beautiful gift from my husband to mark a special birthday and a wonderful surprise. I absolutely love the colour of the pink sapphire and the way it sits so close to my finger so that it doesn’t catch on anything. It has an antique style with a modern twist and I wear it all the time. Thank you.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the work you have done for me. Not only have you transformed my very ordinary seventies rings into two very beautiful new rings, but you have made every meeting a joy. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my rings; they are gorgeous.

Just to thank you so much for all the effort you put into the ring and making me feel very comfortable during the design process. From the outset both of you helped me through what was a very daunting task of creating the perfect ring which my wife to be would love wearing every day of her life! To start with I had no idea what I wanted, all I knew was that there were no rings in shops that would fit the bill, they all looked the same. I really wanted to have a hand in designing a ring for Jen and seeing all the different diamonds, coloured stones and the possible layouts, that were within my budget, was brilliant because you could really get a feel of the ring coming together.
I'm sure that you will be seeing me and Jen at some stage next year to talk about the bands.

‘Thank you for making our wedding rings. To be able to use gold from a ring belonging to my grandmother made them particularly special and we shall treasure them forever’
– Rachael and Matthew Ward
Wow what a ring, the colour is fantastic and it goes really well with my wardrobe. It’s big and bold but also elegant. I love it.

Thank you Matt, what an amazing surprise on our 25th wedding anniversary when Nev gave me the most beautiful ring – designed and made by you. Not only is it truly beautiful to look at – and so many people comment – it is beautiful to wear - your craftsmanship matches your artistic flair. Thank you so much – we’ll be back.

I was first introduced to Matt and Maria Pinn when my friends commissioned a bracelet and pendant for my birthday to be made to their own original design. Matt’s creative interpretation of the design resulted in two exquisite and original pieces of jewellery that I am very proud to wear.
Since then he has transformed some silver and pearl starfish earrings that were too heavy and uncomfortable to wear in to a beautiful brooch and pendant.
Matt has the vision to transform your ideas in to reality and his prices are also very fair.

“The individually designed brooch in the form of an S-shaped Autumn leaf in gold with the inset emerald combined all the symbolism of the season, our wedding anniversary and my wife’s name – a great success of design and production for which I was very relieved and my wife extremely pleased. Many thanks to the craftsman.”

From the moment I walked in to Matt Pinn's studio I was treated to a wonderful experience! He and Marie showed me a selection of beautiful rings from which the design for mine evolved.... And only two weeks later my gorgeous garnet ring was ready! To say I'm delighted is not enough - I haven't taken my ring off since I walked out of the studio with it.
