The Beauty of a Recreated Ring

A ring I gave my Mom 40 years ago was stolen.  I wanted to recreate it as closely as possible.  I had quotes from other jewellers but they could not promise it would even be close.  I kept being told they could not do that setting.

I talked to Wing Chan and he understood what I wanted.  I brought him my opal which was a bit larger than the opal in the original ring but the same colour and an old diamond ring. Wing agreed to use them and add the diamond into the setting.  I wanted the diamond to signify that it was a replacement ring.....

Bert & Jett's Testimonial

Just wanted to tell everyone how happy we are with Vanessa Jewelers, and Wing, and his wife. These people are fantastic in service and quality workmanship. We have been going to Wing for a number of years. Everything from purchasing one of his custom works, to having him customize some of my rings. Lately I have had 2 rings resized (made larger) and the service was quick, the workmanship was excellent!

We can’t say enough about Vanessa Jewelers, they are fantastic!

It’s the only jeweler we use, we won’t go anywhere else.

We had the most wonderful, kind, patient and loving experience at Vanessa Jewellers. We had spent many painstaking months searching for the perfect wedding rings, and people we could genuinely trust to meet our special needs and student budget. This couple was so upfront, confident and reassuring about the prices and styles they could produce for us, and they were even able to have one of our rings custom made with Amethyst and gold we wanted to use from other family members’ jewelry. This is exactly what we had dreamed!! And they pulled all of this off in a week, so that we would have everything done in time for our wedding.

Prior to having all of dreams met and problems solved, we were almost defeated because we had invested over a month of time in another jeweler who misled us about the pricing. This person was going to charge us hundreds of dollars more than what Vanessa charged us, and give us rings that weren’t right for us. Then once when we step foot in Vanessa Jewellers, we just knew right away that we were dealing with really kind and trustworthy people.

We can’t thank Vanessa Jewellers enough for making our wedding so special. To everyone in Victoria, PLEASE consider visiting this wonderful family if you care to share ideas, see what is affordable for you, and get the jewelry you want in a timely and very satisfying manner. Their work is so precious!!!
