Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite.
Highly recommend Jacqueline & Edward for their ethical and environmentally-friendly jewellery. My wedding ring arrived today and it’s perfect.
I found Jacqueline & Edward in my search for an environmentally-friendly jewellery business and chose them also because of their ethos and being based in Yorkshire (where I’m from)!
Mark has been great from my very first e-mail. I used examples from the website alongside pictures of my engagement ring to explain in a quite lengthy e-mail what I was looking for for a wedding ring! Mark sent a brilliant reply with lots of suggestions and ideas, including examples from the website that I hadn’t seen. He was really helpful and I didn’t feel pressured at all to purchase anything more expensive than I wanted to.
Once we had discussed and decided on my ring and its design, I felt confident that Mark knew exactly what I wanted.
Great value for money, great quality, environmentally-friendly jewellery and great service!
Brilliant service all around. Great and patient communication. Great service and the ring is lovely. Cannot recommend this lovely company enough!
Everything about this sale was a pleasure! Thank you so much for all of your help. I love the ring so much!
We are extremely thankful that we stumbled upon Jacqueline and Edward on Etsy. Mark made the process of choosing wedding bands and creating a unique engagement ring incredibly special and enjoyable. We also did a day’s gold panning in the hills which was fascinating and added an extra layer of meaning to our rings. It is rare today to find a craftsman who is so passionate about his field, has incredible skill, and also cares about customer service. The packaging is so well thought out and it felt like we were receiving presents each time! We highly recommend Jacqueline and Edward and will definitely work with them again in future.
Could not recommend Jacqueline and Edward enough. Mark’s collaboration and enthusiasm for making our wedding and engagement rings, made it such an enjoyable process. The rings are beautifully made and sent with such care. I will be forever happy with our choice in using Jacqueline and Edward.
Cannot recommend enough! A local business that cares about its social and environmental impact, creates stunning jewelry at fair prices and provides amazing customer service. What more could you possibly want?
The whole process went very smoothly. Mark and Jaqueline patiently answered all our questions and are clearly very passionate about what they are doing. Their remote ring sizing service convinced my partner who was hesitant to buy our wedding bands online. It was great to receive mock ups of the rings before ordering them to get a feeling for how they will look like.
My partner and I absolutely love our wedding bands and cannot wait to wear them for the rest of our lives.
We are a couple of months late writing this but can’t speak highly enough about the service from Jacqueline & Edward. We were a little nervous about buying wedding rings from a company we couldn’t visit personally but the remote ring sizing service was so helpful and the end product is beautiful, incredible quality and clearly made with care and attention. On top of this the communication with Mark was outstanding. Thanks so much for everything!
My husband and I booked the panning experience for our trip to Scotland in September with the hopes of including some of the river gold we found into our wedding rings.
Panning is something I’ve always wanted to try and it was an absolutely fantastic day. Mark was our guide, demonstrating the panning technique and then overseeing us as we gave it a go ourselves. He was incredibly knowledgeable and happy to share stories of his experiences of panning over the years.
The hours flew by and we thoroughly enjoyed the full day out by the stream. We both found small flecks of gold which we handed over to Mark and he took away with him to include in our beautiful wedding rings.
The rings were presented in a gorgeous handmade wooden box and included a planted tree with a dedication of our choice.
We love our rings so much and want to thank Mark and the team for such a memorable and lovely experience.
We received our rings today, they are absolutely stunning! Not only are they stunning, we love that they are eco friendly, ethically made and sustainable panned. We very much look forward to wearing them. Every detail has been thought through, the handmade reclaimed wooden box is beautifully made.
Mark was extremely responsive and nothing was too much trouble. We didn’t see exactly what we were looking for on the website but Mark was able to accommodate our request with ease. Cannot recommend highly enough!
We bought our wedding rings from Jacqueline & Edward earlier this year – and we originally chose them for their ethically sourced gold and the fact that we could have a matching pair of rings made from the same molten piece of metal making them a truly matching pair.
But what we weren’t expecting was the caring and dedicated service they offered. Right from initial contact through to receiving the rings, they were patient in answering all of our questions, and went above and beyond to get our rings just right. We’re over the moon with the result and couldn’t be happier that we trusted Jacqueline & Edward to make such a special symbol of our marriage. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
What a great service! Mark sent this contour service out for me in time to meet my wedding day – it’s a simple process and the perfect way to get your wedding ring designed bespoke to your engagement ring. Highly recommend.
I contacted Mark at very short notice just a few weeks before my wedding to see if it would be possible to have this ring shaped to my engagement ring. Mark could not have been more helpful. I am over the moon with how it’s turned out, beautiful finish, and comfortable too. Thank you 🙂
I cannot recommend Mark and Jaqueline enough. They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish making a pair of wedding bands for us, and designed something so perfect and unique. I had the romantic idea of having a Welsh and Canadian Gold mix band and Mark made it possible! Mark was open to all our suggestions, happy to change the design when our ideas changed and gave us so much information about the process we felt really involved. So much had to change with our wedding because of COVID but these rings were the one thing that were constant throughout and have provided us with so much joy on the day, and forever. Thank you Mark, you are just the BEST!
My wife loves the pendants craftsmanship and the details to the entire presentation (box that pendant came in, was a nice touch!).
We absolutely love our wedding rings! Fantastic service and will be recommending to any engaged friends and family!
I commissioned Mark to create my fiancee’s engagement ring, and it is absolutely perfect.
I had an idea and Mark brought it to life. He went above and beyond throughout the entire process. For example, Mark offered flexibility when I was unable to make up my mind for the ring’s finish, and also ensured that the stones he sourced for the ring’s inlay were ethically-sourced, and from specific places, as requested.
If you are contemplating designing a piece of jewellery yourself, and are looking for someone who will make the process thoroughly enjoyable all the while delivering a finished piece of exceptional quality, look no further than Jacqueline & Edward. You won’t regret it!
We had a great experience with Mark, he turned around our wedding rings within weeks, as we decided on rings quite late, and delivered in good time for the wedding day. We are really happy with the rings and that they are ethically sources/recycled platinum. Would recommend to anyone.
Highly recommend! We wanted something a bit different from your box standard wedding rings, and are incredibly lucky to have found Mark! The rings are classic while still being distinctive. The fact that the gold is ethically sourced and you can choose from where some of it comes made this particularly appealing to us, to say nothing of the expert craftsmanship. The whole process from the remote ring-sizing service to getting the rings was seamless, and, most importantly, the rings themselves are absolutely amazing! We couldn’t be happier and look forward to wearing these for the rest of our lives!
What a wonderful find. Mark was excellent and his enthusiasm and passion for what he does is wonderful. The final rings we received were gorgeous and the little hawthorn boxes that they came in is just such a lovely rustic touch. What attracted us to Jacqueline and Edward was that real sense of provenance they offer in the gold they use and the very personal and attentive service. Also knowing that both rings came from the same batch of gold with a tiny addition of Welsh and Yorkshire gold, quite probably panned by Mark himself, adds to the romance and backstory of our rings. I would highly recommend this company. You won’t be disappointed.
The ring is amazing! The gold is warm and the inlay catches the light in an exquisitely subtle way. Two weeks away from saying “I do” and it’s hard to put it back in it’s ingenious little wood box until the big day. Thank you so much for creating a beautiful ring to represent our love.
Communication with Mark and Jacqueline has been top notch from the start to the end of the process in helping us get our wedding bands. Beautifully presented, with a personal touch that made our experience one of our easiest and enjoyable aspect in organising our wedding. Thank you again.
Superb service and experience from start to finish. Mark was a pleasure to deal with and his enthusiasm, attention to detail, and care immediately set our minds at rest. And now, having just received the rings, we are extremely pleased with the end result. Thoroughly recommend.
Beautifully finished, comfortable, just what I hoped for. Thank you!
Really excellent and speedy service. We were planning a wedding for early July before lockdown started. We wanted ethical platinum rings, and couldn’t find the right thing on the high street. Mark answered all our questions really thoroughly and provided a really speedy fitting service. Receiving our rings the week before the wedding was a special moment. We’re so thrilled with the fit and finish of our rings – thank you so much!
Wow! When we started looking for our dream wedding bands, it seemed like a pipe dream until we stumbled upon Jacqueline & Edward. From the very first inquiry, Mark was absolutely amazing helping us through the process, and patiently responded to all of our (many!) emails. We used one of their ring designs as a jumping off point, but with a few modifications.
To make sure the rings were absolutelythe right fit, they sent us a box of plastic rings to make sure that we picked the right size which is an amazing idea as we could wear them around for day to make sure they were the perfect fit (turns out my engagement ring is a few sizes too big! That’s what happens when you quickly try on an awkward ring sizer after a brisk walk on a hot day …).
Stellar service, affordable, ethically sourced and most importantly; just drop dead gorgeous final product. I’m so happy that we’ve been able to tie such a pleasant experience to something we’ll carry with us every day.
Thank you so much for your wonderful work! I will definitely be a returning customer 🙂
I was looking for an ethical wedding ring and found this company selling recycled platinum wedding rings. Mark was very responsive and helpful with my questions, and working within the tight deadline I’d imposed on him. I was sometimes getting replies to emails within minutes. I was very impressed with the service, even receiving the ring before my deadline!
The ring itself (5mm court profile ‘Lochy’ ring) is excellent, you can really feel the quality of it. There’s a nice weight to it without it being heavy. I can’t wait to be able to start wearing it, and I say that as someone who doesn’t wear any jewellery at all.
Absolutely gorgeous ring! The 18kt gold shines so and the workmanship is excellent! Bit of a delay due to pandemic but well worth the wait! Once shipped it was delivered to me in the USA in 5 days from the UK! Presentation was first rate! Packaging excellent and secure! If you are on the fence, get off and order from this seller! STELLER!!!!
I rarely post reviews but the ring is perfect and the service has been absolutely superb, I can’t recommend JauelineandEdward enough, we are delighted with the new wedding ring for my husband. When I mistakenly ordered the wrong size Mark dealt with it brilliantly too. Thank you Mark.
My fiancée’s sister discovered Jacqueline & Edward on Etsy and the company’s ethic was the perfect fit for us. We commissioned Mark to make our engagement ring and wedding bands. Mark was receptive and enthusiastic about our ideas, and guided us through the design intricacies. We supplied our own (minuscule) diamonds from family heirlooms and he incorporated these with other recycled stones in the final design. We met and live in Scotland, but come from Poland and New Zealand. Mark included hand-panned river gold from both countries in combination with Scottish and recycled gold in all three rings. This unique combination makes the rings uniquely ours. We loved that Mark undertook field research to support the engagement ring design – it made us feel connected and valued. He was communicative and answered all our questions, as well as sharing photos of the creation process. Mark’s passion and dedication to his craft is evident and greatly appreciated. Despite having to cancel our wedding due to Covid-19 restrictions, Mark ensured we received the rings by special delivery post and this brought us great joy during lockdown. We can’t wait to work with Jacqueline & Edward again (just need to find a good excuse!). Thanks so much for being part of our journey.
We were looking for handmade and ethical wedding rings and could not have found better! We met Mark who explained to us the whole process of ring making, from finding the gold to making the rings in his atelier. We ended up with gold from Scotland and the loveliest matching wedding rings – received in a nice wooden box. We love how passionate Mark is and how well he helped and guided us. We received 3D prints of our rings to be sure about the sizes (even though sizing was made in his atelier). Jacqueline and Mark really care about their client and work. Our experience with them was really nice and we totally recommend them! Thank you again for everything!
I can’t recommend Jacqueline & Mark enough! When I first set out to find a band for my husband-to-be, I had a very particular vision in mind. Specifically, I wanted a platinum band lined with a percentage of Welsh gold. Even MORE specifically, from Northern Wales/Snowdonia! I ended up having a simple gold band made from the same gold as well to wear with my own engagement & wedding ring, to keep us forever (chemically) linked! We love the fact that they are ethically & sustainably made, the family history of gold panning through Mark’s dad Edward, and that they are a part of the Trees for Life UK. Both Mark & Jacqui were an absolute joy to work with, and manifested the vision in the most creative & beautiful way! They are genuinely kind and care massively about their clients and their work, and won’t stop until they ensure the results are perfect. When there was an issue with the delivery on my end, they were updating me and on the phone with their provider before I even knew of the problem! I recommend Jacqueline & Edward without hesitation (and plan to purchase from them again in the future!) xx
We went to visit after finding Jacqueline &o Edward and liking the idea of what they do. We met Mark (the owner and craftsman) who spent a lot of time with us talking through ring design and the making of a ring. It was clear he is extremely passionate about what he does. He wasn’t pushy, quite the opposite in fact. It was a visit to an artisan, passionate about what he does which is a refreshing change. The ring arrived today, it’s truly a bespoke, handmade product. One of a kind.
We recently had our wedding rings made with Mark and they couldn’t be more perfect! Mark is so patient and friendly, it made the experience enjoyable too. Would recommend highly to anyone 🙂 Thank you Mark!
We were initially drawn to Jacqueline & Edward because of their use of eco-gold and the unique finish on the wedding rings. Mark was great at communicating, quickly putting to rest any concerns we had about ordering such an important item without having seen them in person and making sure we were happy with each aspect of the design. We were able to visit Mark at his workshop to check the sizing and he took the time to show us various aspects of how they were made, which was really interesting. We’re really happy with the results and would definitely recommend Jacqueline & Edward to others.
So glad we brought from you ,it’s absolutely beautiful ring nice touches ,and very easy and pleasant ordering from you .thank you
Love! Love! Love! Great communication and quality. I had to replace my original wedding band because it was too fragile for every day life and am happy having a new ring made with Scottish gold, which is where we honeymooned, so it has special meaning to me.
Awesome rings, arrived early and fitted perfectly.
Fantastic service, Mark kept me updated all the way through. The ring is lovely and it still has its sentiment value as Mark incorporated my old ring into this one.
Wish I could give more than 5 stars! I absolutely adore this ring, it is beautifully made and feels surprisingly heavy!
Mark was a pleasure to work with, he took so much time showing us his workshop and explaining his vision. He kept me informed of progress and was so helpful with advice for my partner’s ring as well. Very highly recommended :oD
So lovely! A perfect addition to my wedding ring set to honor my fiancé’s and my family that lived in Edinburgh.
Got my ring this morning; it is perfect and I love it.
My husband surprised me with an eternity ring to go with it (for our twentieth wedding unniversary), but in white gold to make this wedding ring stand out. So now I am wearing all three rings together: wedding ( new and shiny), eternity and engagement.
Mark is wonderful! Great customer service. He helped me find my right ring size. Great communication. My bespoke ring arrived on time and it was stunning. I love that it has Welsh gold in it and that the gold is recycled. It came in a beautiful and unique hand made box and a description of where the Welsh gold came from. Don’t hesitate, order your wedding bands from Mark.
These rings are truly unique and we cannot thank you enough for the exceptional service, from beginning to end… There was so much thought that went into the making of them – particularly the twig – and this was communicated over a period of several weeks. Nothing was too much trouble and we just feel our rings have so much meaning attached to them, as a result. We received our rings some time ago but decided they were so special that we wanted to mark the occasion, so we waited until Wednesday of this week – our wedding anniversary – to exchange them properly with some friends and some wine! So we have only been wearing them for a day and a half, but we are both thrilled to bits. Thank you so much
Rings are gorgeous (and fit perfectly). Communication was great and the shop was super helpful in figuring out sizes. Really a wonderful experience and we will be so pleased to wear these when the time comes!
The best service ever and the ring is so very special. Thank you 🙂
Beautiful rings and they fit perfectly.Thankyou so much!
Ich habe ihn gesehen und ich wollte keinen anderen mehr . Seit ich ihn bekommen habe , ist er mein Lieblingsstück . Er ist so schön , einzigartig und ein Augenfang . Ich werde darauf angesprochen , man sieht seine Einzigartigkeit . Ich liebe ihn und sage ganz herzlichen Dank , insbesondere an die gute Betreuung durch Mark . Im August bekommt dann auch mein Freund einen Ring
I saw him and I didn’t want another one more. Since I got him, he’s been my favourite piece. He is so beautiful, unique and an eye-catching. I’m approached about it, you see its uniqueness. I love him and say thank you very much, especially to the good care provided by Mark. In August my boyfriend gets a ring
Excellent communication from seller after I missed the pre-Christmas deadline. The cufflinks look very beautiful, nicely packaged, and the accompanying certificate is lovely. Look forward to giving these as a special gift which I am sure will go down well!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Mark for our beautiful wedding rings! Such a pleasure to be involved with the design process and to have included antler into Joes ring has made it even more special to us. Thank you for your patience creating these!
I ordered this for my fiancé (now husband, eep!) as he is from North Wales and we wanted something a bit different and more personal. I also asked for ‘Cariad’ to be engraved. Mark was in contact with us a couple of times throughout the process, he was friendly and helpful and showed great attention to detail. The ring itself is beautiful and it came in a hand made wooden box with a certificate which is a really nice touch. My husband loves it, most importantly!
The rings are fantastically unique and it is great to have a story behind our special wedding. Mark kept us fully informed of the progress whilst making the rings for us, helped with checking the sizing and delivered to a very tight schedule. He is obviously a very skilled craftsman who loves his job. We would thoroughly recommend using him to make a very special wedding ring.
Perfect wedding ring. Love the finish and the design. Mark provided a friendly and personal service that is difficult to top. We will definitely look to buy from him again.
The ring is very pretty, just what I wanted. I wear it when I need to leave my larger set at home and still have a wedding ring. I love the documentation that come with it and the little box it comes in. It was a pleasure working with this shop to order this ring.
Fantastic craftsmanship, great advice and listened to everything I asked for.
You won’t find this on the high street!
I utterly adore my ring. Mark was super helpful and kind and very reassuring about my nerves of spending so much buying something I couldn’t see or try on before hand. He offered to resize if needed but it fitted absolutely perfectly. Made in the time frame agreed and shipped in the most beautiful wood box. Mark was really helpful in discussing design and the gold I could add in from significant places to us (it is my wedding ring). To have gold from where we met and where we are to be married, and eco gold makes this the most special wedding ring imaginable. I would not hesitate to recommend Jacqueline and Edward to anyone. I am beyond delighted.
Exactly as pictured and described on the website. It is unique, handmade, and precisely what I wanted. I am grateful that the care with which I picked my ring was matched by Mark’s individual attention!!
Mark is as passionate about his rings as he is his clients wishes.I wanted unique rings . I was to wed an American lass and emigrate. Having contacted Mark unique was not going to be an issue! We met Mark at the family home in the highlands with a burn not 100 yards away and panned for gold. It turned out my little river was plentiful and it is a personal delight to know we earned a small piece of our rings. An extra memory you can’t buy and mark provided. The final rings were everything we had hoped for, much admired and the story has charmed so many of my new wife’s family and friends. Thanks Mark for so much more than just rings of gold. Owe you one.
Absolutely fantastic service. Mark made a custom wedding band for my husband to be and we couldn’t be happier with it. Mark was great to work with, really communicative, helpful, knowledgeable and clearly has a passion for his work. Every detail of the process was faultless. We love the ring and can’t wait for the wedding. The handmade box and scroll were a really nice touch. Don’t hesitate to buy a ready made or custom piece from JacquelineandEdward you will be 100% over the moon with it.
We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding rings, which are totally unique and feel very personal to us as a couple. Mark worked very closely with us on the design of the rings, and they are exactly how we imagined they would be. Possibly the most enjoyable aspect of this experience was meeting Mark at his workshop and learning about his creative process – transforming simple raw materials into beautiful jewellery. Mark is so passionate about what he does, and puts a huge amount of time, effort and care into his work. We feel very lucky to have found him and really can’t recommend him highly enough!
Ordered these for my partner’s birthday, the silver used being panned from his beloved homeland of Scotland. They are quite simply exquisite; I am beyond thrilled.
Mark has returned any communication from me promptly and with good grace, always helpful and pleasant.
Thank you so very much; I am one happy customer 🙂
The ring is beautiful!!! Mark needed to put a bend in the ring so that it would fit with my engagement ring. I sent him over a few measurements and he fit the wedding band to my engagement ring perfectly! It is truly unbelievable. He also expedited the ring and got it to me with plenty of time to spare. He was a joy to work with, his work is beautiful, and I couldn’t recommend him more!
The ring looks amazing and fits perfectly! Mark went above and beyond to meet my every need. I couldn’t recommend him more!
Extremely pleased with my beautiful ring. Mark was able to incorporate some Exmoor gold into the ring, as I requested, and produced a lovely ring which goes perfectly with my engagement ring. I can’t wait to wear it every day!
Absolutely beautiful. Couldn’t possibly have asked anything more perfect – incredible craftsmanship and great customer service.
Thanks for the wonderful rings. Your attention to detail has meant we have beautiful rings that mean so much to us. It’s wonderful that our rings already have a story of their own that we can add to as time goes by. Thanks again!
I was looking for a unique ring box to go with the engagement ring for my now fiancée. This was exactly what I was looking for and I could not be happier with it. Mark was very helpful when it came to making sure the dimensions were what I needed. All in all I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Great product.
Beautiful cufflinks. Communication was excellent throughout. Thank you.
These are absolutely stunning (and the presentation box is also lovely) and lovely to have information included about the provenance. Great communication and shipped exactly when requested. Thank you so much!
I ordered these cufflinks for my boyfriend’s 30th bday. I wanted to get him something that was unique and special. The cufflinks are exactly what I was hoping for. We LOVE them!! You see and feel the high quality of craftsmanship that went into the piece straight away and love that there will be no other pair exactly like it.
Mark was so great during the process. He was very quick to answer my many questions and took the time to recommend on size etc. He also kept me informed on where he was with making them.
I didn’t quite give him the required time for custom made pieces (I am not that organized) but Mark was able to produce my request in time which I greatly appreciate!
I highly recommend this designer and would have no hesitation in contacting him again to commission another piece
Thanks again! Everything is perfect 🙂
A completely unique & special experience that has resulted in a perfect and special 40th birthday gift for my brother. Very, very happy with these amazing cufflinks.
Mark at Jacqueline & Edward really took the time to understand what my vision and aspirations were for the cufflinks, which were to be given as a gift. I wanted something special that really meant something to my brother. Mark developed a truly exquisite design that was made even more special by incorporating gold from our mothers wedding ring as well as panned gold and silver from the UK.
Finally when I gave them to my brother he was genuinely blown away by with the design and quality of the cufflinks, and also how special they really were and how they had been made just for him, incorporating such special materials that ensured a connection with our mother.
Love it!!! Beautiful ring and box, excellent customer service, a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend, and will happily buy from this very skilled and innovative craftsman again!
Mark is a natural artisan, he doesn’t just make rings, he makes a little family story that sits on your finger. It’s not any old ring, it’s your ring, an heirloom before it’s had time to become one. You can’t get that in a shop. If you want a bespoke wedding band, full of story then Mark can bring it to life. This testimonial might seem a bit over the top but I don’t care. I was gushing about my ring at the wedding and I obviously still am!
So pleased with this ring! I was lucky enough to live less than an hour’s drive from the workshop so was able to visit and see the different options and hear about panning for gold in the UK. I have a photo of the actual ring and will try to post it here.
