“I knew enough about the 4 “C”s to know I had no desire to head to the shopfront-type jewellery stores to be found in shopping centres where the assistants may know little more than I do about finding a quality stone with a true guarantee. I wanted to deal with someone I could trust. I wanted to feel confident that the quality of the diamond was of the standard I was after.

Karen came highly recommended.

After discussions with Karen I felt confident that she would source a diamond to the exact quality and size I desired. Then came the decision on the appearance of the ring. Karen asked about my girlfriend’s personalities – likes and dislikes – and directed me towards Cartier and Tiffany websites to see similar designs for inspiration.

The service standard I received was exceptional. A small example of the lengths Karen will go to is when the ring needed to be resized. We had it back on my fiancée’s hand within a 4-day turnaround. Not bad from Melbourne to Sydney!

I am very confident to recommend you to use Karen for your one-time investment. If you believe like I do that it requires more than a look in a shopfront window – then you need go no further. My fiancée is delighted.”

“Karen Lindley has been designing jewellery for my family for more than 30 years. When we went to see Karen to design my engagement ring I had a vague idea of what I wanted it to look like. Karen took those thoughts and came up with some options, one of which was perfect. Karen gave us the best advice on the diamonds and the setting with outstanding personal service. In only 10 days after meeting with Karen my ring was ready. I now have the most fabulous engagement ring that is exactly what I wanted – it’s beautiful and elegant and suits me perfectly. We would recommend Karen to anyone wanting the perfect piece of jewellery.”

“It was a pleasure to deal with Karen. Karen demonstrated an extensive knowledge of her products and assisted in choosing and designing the ring. Karen is a pleasure to deal with we look forward to dealing with her as we design our wedding bands.”

“I wanted to say one last “Thank You” for my beautiful ring. it really is magnificent! i cant stop looking at it.

The ring meant a lot to me before because of the time in my life when it was first gifted me.. i’m sure you hear this kind of thing all the time. But now it’s nice to have it personalised/customised to my taste and to my fit.<.p>

I’m very appreciative of your assistance throughout design process and with respecting my “changing” choices … also with keeping me under budget.

So for now i wish you well and maybe i’ll see you one day in the future “with more jewellery” :)”
