Jo Corless, Haywards Heath, West Sussex

I cannot thank Richard enough for the beautiful ring he has made for me. Combining my my Mother’s engagement ring with additional stones he has created a stunning piece of jewellery, which I will treasure. I would be delighted to recommend Richard ( I have already to various friends and family), he is a sensitive and caring professional , a true craftsman.

Melissa, East Sussex

I had contacted Richard via his website to enquire about getting my engagement ring resized. He instantly replied with indicative quotes and timescales. We popped into his workshop that evening hoping to have a chat and confirm details as I was very nervous at handing over my new jewellery to someone I didn’t know. I shouldn’t have worried, Richard was welcoming and understanding from the start, he kindly made the required changes there and then, much to our delight. A very talented and considerate man, reliable and reasonably priced too! We’ll definitely be back to design wedding rings!

Sarah & Ray Aguirre, Sussex

From the moment we met Richard we knew that we had picked the correct person to make our rings. The service from beginning to end was outstanding and Richard made the process very easy. We are very happy with our purchases and can not thank Richard enough.

David Lower, Oslo, Norway

I first meet Richard at a wedding fare at Wiston House. He was standing by his little stand and caught my eye. There was something about his warm smile that attracted me to go over. I was instantly aware of how genuine and friendly he was. He then started talking about rings and how he makes them in his lab. I was so impressed because he spoke with such a passion. Before we had even finished I knew I would use Richard to make our wedding rings. Sure enough 3 months later he sold me a fantastic ring. Richard and the service he provides was and is extremely professional and very good. He is passionate about his work and I really can’t recommend him highly enough. He is one of those rare business men that actually looks after his customers, a very rare commodity these days. I hope him all the best in the future.

Anne Viccars, Andalucia, Spain

I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Richard Talman by a friend whilst visiting the UK. I had recently lost my husband and wanted to combine 3 very important rings to me into one ring to bring all the memories together. I found Richard to be very respectful, kind and helpful in designing a ring to give me the joy that the original rings had inspired. I have waited with some trepidation whilst he performed his magic and yesterday received the finished ring. I am pleased to say the ring is beautiful, elegant and the design aspects suggested by Richard have given the exact effect I had dreamt of. He kept me well informed whilst making the ring sending me emails showing the combining of the gold to assure me that this big step of resetting the symbols of our life together were truly respected. Today I know my husband would have been as pleased with the wonderful result as I am, the craftsmanship and care shown to me by Richard has made my new ring the symbol of all our happy time, and for that I thank him and would recommend his talent to all.

Emma & Craig, Newhaven

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed working with Richard while going through the process of designing our wedding rings, and the brilliant job he did with bringing the drawings to life. We both love them and have recommended him to our friends and family.

Beverly Brakefield, Weybridge

Words can’t express how delighted I am with my beautiful ring. You are truly an extraordinary craftsman and jewellery design artist who has interpreted my ideas to perfection all within the budget.

Your patience, time, care and personal service is much appreciated and I look forward to collecting the next ring which I know will be just as beautiful.

Andy Collenette, Newhaven

I contacted Richard after he was recommended to me by a friend. My wife’s 40th birthday was approaching and I wanted to get her something with a personal intimate touch, something I couldn’t find in a high street jewellers. Richard and I met and discussed some designs and possibilities and decided upon a platinum full eternity ring in a scalloped design incorporating diamonds and aquamarines, which is my wife’s birthstone. The added personal sentiment was having my name discreetly engraved on one side in an exact copy of how I sign intimate cards to my wife. The back-holes beneath the stones were alternating hearts rather than just circles. The end result was stunning! Throughout, Richard was calm, reassuring and professional but above all extremely friendly which made him a pleasure to deal with. My wife adores her new ring and we’re both really looking forward to working with him again in the future.

Sandra Reeve, Guildford

Richard put me totally at ease when I came to see him to discuss my requirements for a full eternity ring for my wedding anniversary. I was quite daunted about the process of getting a bespoke ring but Richard made everything seem easy and took the time to listen and discuss with me what I wanted – even going so far as to make me a mock up ring so that I could see what it would look like! He contacted me regularly to give me updates on progress and was always very friendly and welcoming when I visited him at his workshop. The result was a fantastic ring which fits beautifully in between my engagement and wedding rings. Richard promised that he would make me a ring that I would love and he certainly wasn’t wrong! I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone thinking of buying a bespoke ring.

Mark Shoubridge, Horsham

I went to Richard after a recommendation, and I believe that he has the best marketing platform, word of mouth, I know I’ll be Recommending him to everyone I know. The most professional guy I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, an expert in all fields. Every question I threw at him ,he came back with the best answer anyone could have hoped for. Richard knows his stuff. As for myself, someone who doesn’t know anything about Diamonds and jewellery, I now know a vast amount of helpful and useful information. I feel that his style of work, communication and honesty really makes him stand out from the other bespoke Jewellers and high street jewellers I met. Richard makes everything transparent and the whole experience feel comfortable and relaxed. The level of service that Richard provides is outstanding and it is a pleasure to be one of his clients. His after-sales service is also fantastic. Due my purchase being a surprise, we had to guess the finger size, and sadly the ring was slightly too large for my fiancé’s finger. However, Richard was more than happy to resize it, and did a fantastic job doing it. My fiancé was excited about meeting him. Richard resized the ring while we waited. This is a decision I will never regret and will look forward to dealing with him again when it comes round to the wedding rings. Thank you once again.
