Customer Feedback

My mother was floored! She cried in a way that I have only seen her about jewelry since my father gave her gifts when he was alive. She was so touched and I heard that she has worn it every day since we gave it to her. She apparently is just taking walks so that she can show it off.

She said it is her most valuable piece and she's a huge jewelry collector since she began working in her 20s. She has wanted this piece since my girls were born and she told me that she was even investigating who could do a cameo for her, but she said nothing she saw was even remotely close to this.

It was everything we hoped for and more. Thank you for letting us have this moment with her! Thank you again for everything and wishing you the best! We appreciate your artistic gift and are thrilled to have this amazing piece in our life...Lisa - New York
