It was well worth the wait!
I would like to add to the very favourable comments about Ann, and her team, at Stonechat. I happened to wander into this gem of a shop on New Year’s Eve 2014, whilst staying at the adjacent Westbury Hotel. I will be forever indebted to Ann for her kind and courteous manner, generosity of spirit, and ultimately, the design options she suggested, to this stranger, who just strolled in unannounced!
Initially, I intended just to have my Engagement ring remodelled, but, the fabulous contemporary designs of Irish Goldsmith, Michael O’Dywer, who is part of the design team at Stonechat, and their desire to ensure that I would be happy with my ring, inspired great confidence in me to such an extent, that I decided to have my wedding ring re designed also!
I could hardly contain my excitement whilst waiting for them to be created, and it was well worth the wait! Ann consulted with me every step of the way, and understood that although I had outgrown my rings, I was still very attached to the diamonds, and wanted to preserve the sentimentality ( I might add here that I have not outgrown the hubby!)
I am now the proud owner of an exquisite engagement and wedding ring that are being admired far and wide. In fact the rings spend more time on other peoples’ fingers than my own, such is the ‘Wow’ factor! I can thoroughly recommend Stonechat, for either jewellery which a client may wish to have re-modelled, or, a new custom made bespoke piece. Their prices are very competitive and their customer service is unparalleled in my opinion. The move to a larger premises in 2014 and the prominent design workshop space they now have, fully ‘’showcases'' their exquisite jewellery. Stonechat promises their discerning customer, quality craftsmanship and uniqueness, and I am happy to confirm that they deliver on their promise. I would like to wish them continued success.

This made it feel so special and unique to me
Every single day I find myself thinking how happy I am that we came to Stonechat for my ring! I was quite nervous about picking my own engagement ring… all that beautiful sparkly choice was overwhelming at first! I dealt with Ann when choosing my ring and she made the experience everything, She guided me without influencing and didn’t overwhelm me with all the decisions at once but as a step by step process! I decided on a champagne diamond within a rose gold setting and a diamond band. Something that made it really special was the champagne diamond I picked is the exact same diamond that is in my ring now, it was removed from its original setting and set in my ring, this was because no two diamonds would be the exact same colour. This made it feel so special and unique to me, and also I know it was love at first sight!!
We worked out a custom design that matched exactly what I didn’t even know I wanted and my budget
When I was searching for an engagement ring for my wife (then girlfriend) I found that nothing commercial suited my needs. I had quite a specific notion, without a specific idea, as to what I wanted and I started to fear I wouldn’t be able to find a match.
Enter Ann and, after taking some time with me to discuss my requirements and needs, we worked out a custom design that matched exactly what I didn’t even know I wanted and my budget!!! I was delighted with the finished product and my wife was equally delighted with it when I eventually proposed with the ring! We were so happy with the engagement ring, we went back to Ann for our wedding rings, which again, we love. Having originally had my doubts about the possibility of having custom creations made for our special occasions, I now know the only place I can go where my wishes and needs are met with the simplest of conversations, is Stonechat Jewellers. Now, some years later, I am looking forward to the next item I can get commissioned with Stonechat, and highly recommend that if you’re in the market for something unique, you need look no further than here. Artisan craftsmanship of the highest order!
Beautiful ring bought at Stonechat!
I got engaged on Christmas morning & was lucky enough to be presented with a beautiful ring bought at Stonechat! (You might remember my guy walked town for 3 days trying to find your shop as he had only been there once before with me & he's not Irish! !) Must be love!
Anyway because it was a surprise engagement the ring was a bit big & needed resizing, but because of the style of the ring it had to be remade. No problem to you guys! I had it back in no time & with no extra charge.
I love it - the contemporary style, unique design, but most of all the love & time he spent choosing something that reflects me
Thank you so much guys!
I was not disappointed
After a consultation with Ann I was very happy to leave my own precious ring for some touch ups and order two lovely diamond rings to compliment it. I was confident that I would get what I had ordered, along with a friendly, warm and professional service. I was not disappointed - I was thrilled.
