Matthew Ely was a delight. From the first moment we spoke about the design for my ring, I had absolute confidence in his eye for detail and design. The final product was better than I could have imagined and is testimony to his incredible skill and craftsmanship. He is the consummate professional and lovely to deal with.

Matthew and his team were fantastic! They really took the time to understand our specific requirements and make the whole experience leading up to our wedding exciting and truly memorable. Our rings are just stunning. We couldn’t be happier.

We cannot thank you enough for making our journey right from our engagement until the wedding so wonderful and for helping us to design such beautiful rings. We will forever remember your guidance, enthusiasm, patience and amazing workmanship. We had such a fun time designing them with you. We will always treasure our rings that you have helped make so unique and memorable for us both!

At 18,200 feet on the summit of Mount Kala Patthar, Nepal with the sun rising just over the tip of Everest and basecamp below as the backdrop, I got down on my knee and asked the love of my life, Marcy to marry me. With tears freezing on her face since it was -20 degrees and heavy breaths due to the low oxygen, she managed to make out a ‘yes’. I worked really closely with Matthew on designing the perfect ring based on Marcy’s style and interests. I can’t thank him and his team enough for working with me on the perfect engagement ring and will definitely be coming back again.
