“I Trusted Her Artistic Experience.”
I am so pleased with the ring I commissioned from Paula Godden. We had some family heirloom gemstones, and I'd always wanted to see them in a piece of jewelry but I sure didn't want them to be ordinary. I saw Paula's work at an art show, and thought I'd ask for her help. She listened carefully to my ideas, looked at the stones, and explained her vision for these family pieces. I gave her one of the stones and waited for the results. I'm so glad I trusted her artistic experience. The ring is unique and beautiful. It satisfies my desire to wear the stone close to me, every day, without looking like an ordinary everyday ring. Everyone who sees it comments on its style, and I just couldn't be happier. I recommend her commission work unreservedly, and will use her again without hesitation.
“I Had Not Worn My Ring For Many Years...”
15 years of marriage means I get a new ring. I was so amazing to work with my dear friend Paula to create a new version of the ring my husband proposed with. I had not worn my ring for many years and this new version suits my personality and lifestyle perfectly. I love that the heart of the ring is unchanged, but like our relationship, things grow, morph and shine in new ways. I feel like a new bride and can't wait to see where the next 15 years take us! Paula was wonderful to work with and she created a one -of-a-kind piece that reflects her unique style while surpassing my own vision of what the ring would become.
“The Quality Of Work Is Exceptional”
I absolutely adore Paula & Joel and their work! Our relationship started in business and quickly turned into a friendship. I respect the heart & soul they put into each and every piece of jewellery and that is exactly why I knew I wanted our wedding rings to be made by them! A wedding band is a symbol worn everyday as a reminder of our commitment and love for one another, and we feel so grateful to have such beautiful custom pieces be a part of our love story. Paula absolutely nailed our vision and the quality of work is exceptional. It was truly a wonderful experience working with her and I highly recommend her for any custom design requests! And be sure to check out the Pirate & the Gypsy shop as I own a few pieces and always get compliments on them! Feeling very thankful!
“The Quality And Beauty Is Exceptional.”
Paula is amazing! Patient, talented, funny. She designed the family ring of my dreams! Took apart an old ring and used some of the diamonds and sapphires I had - and added a raw diamond and a beautiful champagne coloured diamond to the collection. She followed me through every enthusiasm and every hesitation until we got it right! The cost was about $3500, including $1300 worth of diamonds. An incredible price given the number of consultations, the design time, materials, and labour to craft this ring. I am a picky grandmother who wanted a unique family ring that didn't look like a "family ring" - and the quality and beauty is exceptional. I highly recommend The Pirate & The Gypsy Designs
“Exactly What I Wanted And More!”
After purchasing multiple pieces of jewelry from The Pirate + The Gypsy previously, I decided to have them custom design an engagement ring for my partner. I had a very specific idea in mind and was anxious about how it would turn out. I picked it up yesterday and it beyond exceeded any expectations I could have had. It's exactly what I wanted and more! Highly recommend The Pirate + The Gypsy for anyone who is looking for a special piece of jewelry. It is clear that a significant amount of time, precision, and love goes in to every piece!
“Compliments On The Uniqueness...”
I commissioned Paula to reset my two sapphire rings into one. What a fantastic job she did. She sent me a couple of designs... both beautiful... I settled on one and the finished product is absolutely stunning. I have received many compliments on the uniqueness of the ring. I am more than thrilled with her professionalism and workmanship and I would recommend her without hesitation. Thank you Paula.
