Dear Ron,

I am so thankful that years ago when my husband and I were visiting from out of state, we just happened to walk into your store in Downtown Annapolis - and found a place where integrity and service matter and artistry in jewelry-making flourishes! You have made several pieces for me over the years that I love! One of my favorite memories of you was when my future son-in-law chose to buy my daughter’s engagement ring from you over the phone while I was there in person at your store - that is how much our family trusts you.

But this last ring that you made for me is the most special. As a public high school teacher, I certainly don’t have a lot of discretionary income, and already had a beautiful engagement ring that you made me years ago. But I began saving for my retirement present to myself years ago - and the day finally arrived when I asked you to upgrade my ring with 2 more diamonds. What you created for me is absolutely beyond my dreams! It is a work of art that I get to wear every day. Thank you for the joy your talent and skills will give me each time I look at my hand. I will cherish this ring and I thank you for your kindness and professionalism.

Thank you to you and your family! We were married April 21st and enjoyed showing the beautiful custom work of our wedding bands to friends and family. Annapolis has been a special place to us while living in Maryland, and your shop is an important part of that story. Thank you again for the wonderful rings! We wish you and your family the very best!

Dear Ron,

Your artistry, in creating my pear of gold, was beyond comparison! The attention to proportion, detail, and finishing, make it just exquisite. Thank you, for your way of listening, the careful research, showing me the photo of the mold and comparing with my inspiration piece from the e-Bay photo. I enjoyed the process as you worked it out. It was well worth the brief wait for such a gloriously beautiful object. Pears symbolize health and abundance. I will wear it with joy! When you get your RG die in the right size, I would like you to sign it.

Sincerely, Julie Mann

Dear Ron,

I just had to tell you what a fantastic job you did on restoring my engagement ring and how thrilled I am to have it back! My finger looked naked without it, after all those years I had hoped to have it restored by my 75th birthday celebration on 9/6 and you came through with time to spare. We feel blessed to have such a 1st class jeweler right here in Annapolis!... Thankyou again, and David says hello!

Fondly, Sally R. Scotton

Mr. George,

I want to thank you again for your help with my brother's ring. The pendant you made for my mother turned out beautiful. I appreciate your work getting it done for christmas, during your busy time, on such short notice. My mom treasures the pendant. I have heard that the cufflinks turned out great also. My father is getting some more shirts made with french cuffs so that he can wear them more often.

Thanks again, Jan Astle

Dear Ron,

I wanted to write you a note and thank you for recommending the gorgeous pearl necklace you helped me choose for my god-daughter. She loved the necklace and her reaction was priceless to me. Thank you for your generous price. It will be a keepsake we will add to for years, and I look forward to sharing that with you.

Sincerely, Peg Bogdanski

Dear Mr. George,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My fiance and I brought my engagement ring to your store for a new setting. Your staff were incredibly helpful in designing the changes to the ring. Thank you for creating such a beautiful ring in such a short time. I love it!

Sincerely, Kara Sellman

Dear Ron,

Just a note to let you know how extremely pleased I am with the resetting of the two diamond rings. They both are perfectly in line with what I had in mind. I am so grateful to you (and your staff). I am so happy I just had to let you know... I hope you have a nice day and I do appreciate and thank you for everything you have made possible.

Best, Julie Bizzell


Thank you, one last time, for Kimberly's engagement ring, our wedding rings and her diamond earrings. This letter includes the last half of what I still owe on the earrings. As I mentioned before, you can be sure that if Kimberly or I need any jewelry or can refer your name to anyone looking to buy jewelry, we will. Take good care.

Thanks, Aaron Dimmock

Dear Ron,

I wanted to send you a note to thank you for doing such a beautiful job on my ring. It is absolutely gorgeous! I am so happy with my new ring and it's more than I could have imagined :)

Thank you, Jessica Burgess
