"Thank you so much for designing a most beautiful engagement ring. You set the stones exactly how I imagined! The setting is stylish, modern yet beautifully understated. I love the way you have transformed the image I had in my head to reality! Not only does the ring fit perfectly but you took the time & imagination to ensure it sits perfectly with my wedding ring. I shall be coming back for more!" Fiona Sulley (Feb 2016)

"I am very happy with both rings. I love having such an unusual wedding ring. I really like the feeling that it was hand made and hand carved. It makes it very personal and adds that human connection. I like the combination of the rough and the smooth, the irregularity. Thank you for all the care, artistry and skill you put into making such a special ring for me, I could not have asked for more." Ann (July 2013)

"My husband promised me a special ring for a special anniversary but it took me 7 years to find the style I wanted! Ruth made me a unique ring taking my rough ideas and making the perfect ring." Margaret (May 2013)

  

"I am passionate about jewellery and wanted a statement modern yet vintage styled stand out piece that I could wear both casually and for live performances. Ruth wood's ring is exactly what I had in mind. It tells a story like a vintage piece, it is of the highest quality and its individuality is second to none. I've lost count of the amount of positive comments and interest the ring has received." Lizzy Parks - Jazz /Soul singer songwriter(April 2013)

"Having looked at many rings we eventually found in Ruth's design a unique and beautiful engagement ring. When it came to having our wedding bands made we returned to Ruth's designs and she went out of her way to ensure that we had them for our wedding day. I am very happy to be wearing such beautiful rings that have been crafted with such great skill. Thank you so much Ruth, you are a wonderful artist and your customer service is second to none! " Maggie & Steve (April 2013)

"Thank you so much for the beautiful ring, I will treasure it always and now I have a constant reminder of my blue-eyed babies." Sara (April 2013)

 "I received my ring commission you made of black silver with rough diamonds from the Brass Monkeys. I cant tell you how happy I am wearing it! The reactions are amazing too. It is exactly made the way I imagined. I want to thank you for that!" Gonny (April 2013)

"Amazing and very special - I've just collected my beautiful wedding ring. The whole process of visiting the gallery and talking through ideas with Ruth was a real pleasure, and I knew straight away that I'd found someone who created scrumptious jewellery. Thank you so much for creating something I love. Look forward to collecting my pendant!" Barbara (April 2013)

 

  "I personally wanted to thank you for the excellent work and service you provided. You made ring shoping painless and easy. You always ensured my questions and calmed my nerves. The finished ring is flawless and I cannot stop looking at it. I cannot thank you enough Ruth for the perfect ring you created for me." Nadia (Jan 2013)

"A very beautiful diamond from an engagement ring had been sitting in a box for a few years when I saw the most unusual ring in an a local magazine promoting Ruth's work. I immediately went to see her and she transformed a ring I couldn't wear, into a very unique statement piece that I now wear all the time. Thank you so much." Val (Dec 2012)

"I just wanted to let you know that I received my ring yesterday and to say a massive thankyou for all the hard work you have put into making it. It's absolutely perfect, even better than I'd hoped and is now in it's right place on my wedding finger. Everyone who has seen it has commented on how beautiful and unique it is. Thankyou again...and when we finally plan the wedding I may be in touch for a matching wedding band if you would be happy to make one."  Jackie (Oct 2012)

 "Ruth listened patiently while I struggled to describe the ring I wanted. She then took my many stupid suggestions and transformed them into silver, producing a wonderfully crafted delight, much admired by strangers in queues or those passing by in the street. Meantime I've gained a vicarious pleasure, as I gaze upon the misery of men with less wit then me, whose wives and girlfriends now jealously crave the same invention from them. This is a marvellous ring." Mark (Oct 2012)

"I had been hoarding this gorgeous precious beryl for years, waiting for the right opportunity, and Ruth has put it into a unique beautiful setting which is perfect for it." Rosemary (Oct 2012)

"A rough diamond had been on my dream list for a very long time, although I never imagined I would ever own one. Then, right before my 21st birthday, I came across Ruth's website and was in love! Not only were there amazing rough diamonds, but they were also set in such beautiful and unique ways. When the ring turned up, I knew I could not have recieved anything more perfect for a 21st present, it is indiviual and more than I imagined. So, as I sit in my statistics lecture avoiding work and all of my friends crowding round, looking at Ruth's webiste, I may be able to tick a rough diamond off my dream list, but I am going to have to add all of Ruth's new deigns to it instead! It was a pleasure to receive a piece of work from you, and for the kind communications during the process. Hopefully you will hear from me again." Rebecca (Oct 2012)

 

“The anticipation grew as each of the pendants became clearer as I unwrapped the tissue in each box. I couldn’t be more pleased. Both totally exceed all my expectations and are better than I could have hoped for, not even if I had designed them myself. I cannot think of a word which expresses my complete satisfaction, they are perfect and gorgeous. WOW what fun I am going to have wearing both pendants." Joan (Oct 2012)

"I had an idea of the sort of bangle I wanted and had looked everywhere with no success. I really liked Ruth's work, but had never commissioned anything from anyone before. Ruth understood what I was after and came up with ideas and examples of various options. The end result is a distinctive and unique piece of Ruth's work and exactly what I had been hoping for." Francesca (July 2012)

"I'd wanted to propose to my girlfriend for sometime but I was dreading the ring selection as my girlfriend has a very individual taste and obviously I wanted to get it right. I was recommended Ruth by someone I knew. I looked on her website and knew straight away that Ruth's designs were exactly what I'd been looking for. I contacted Ruth and she helped me from start to finish while still respecting my own preferences for the ring. I didn't need to fear anything, my girlfriend loves the ring and we will also be using Ruth to make our wedding bands. I would recommend Ruth to anybody from the service and communication to the actual craftsmanship of the ring. Very happy!" Andy (March 2012) 

 

 "The moment we saw Ruth Wood's jewellery, we knew it was for us. We love the ununiformed simple yet striking designs. We have bought various items over the last 3 years and we have never been disappointed, so we felt trust and confidence in commissioning Ruth to create our wedding rings. The rings are fantastic and we are both extremely pleased with the outcome and we can highly recommend Ruth's bespoke jewellery." Adam & Hayley (Jan 2012)

"Ruth knew exactly what I wanted and created a beautiful and unique set of rings that I absolutely adore." Lucy (Jan 2012)

 

"I discovered Ruth's work when doing some research for a friend with a jewellery shop. I thought her designs extrordinary and totally unique. So when I decideded to make something from my Grandmother's wedding ring and an old medal of my Grandfather's I got in touch with Ruth. She came up with a wonderful design incorporating a yellow citrine I had and the finished result is a necklace that is totally unique and utterly beautiful. I am thrilled to bits with it, and wear it with great pride knowing what it is made from and how it came into being." Jane (Dec 2011)

 "Lucy and I attended the 'Ring in a day' workshop Ruth hosted at Yorkshire Sculpture Park last September which was fantastic! It was there we both saw Ruth's work for the first time. The 'handmade' and 'raw' look to her rings were different to rings I have ever seen before and I knew Lucy loved them. When I decided that I was going to propose I contacted Ruth via email and got a quick and informative response back - she was very helpful and more than willing to make the exact type of ring I wanted. When the ring arrived as promised, it was beautiful and exactly how I expected it to be quality wise. Also, Lucy loves it too and is proud that she has a unique engagement ring. We will definitely be going back to Ruth to get our wedding bands!" Karl (Jan 2012) 

"I just wanted to thank you very much for producing such a unique, wonderful and interesting engagement ring for Sally and myself. I really enjoyed the process and can't imagine a better journey and result. Sally has commented that she could not have chosen better herself! We are both so pleased and can't stop looking at the ring. We get so many great comments, nearly all say the ring is so Sally! Thank you so much Ruth." David (Nov 2011)

"The ring arrived today as promised and I am so pleased with it! My husband died last year from cancer and I bought the ring as a present to me from him, so it has a special significance. I know he would have loved it." Amanda (June 2011) 

"I met Ruth at a craft fair in the city of London and was immediately impressed with the quality of her work. I had been searching  for somebody to reset as a ring a stone I inherited from my father and thought that the work undertaken by Ruth, with its organic shapes aligned with high quality craftmanship, might fit my requirements. Whilst the brief was not easy to fulfill, Ruth has produced a setting which is quite frankly stunning. It has excelled my expectations and has ensured that a deeply personal inheritance is now being shown in it's very best light." Peter (May 2011)

"I am very happy with my engagement ring, it's unusual, totally unique and exactly what I wanted. I've recieved so many compliments on it already." Lindsay (May 2011)

"I commissioned Ruth to make a pendant necklace for me in 18ct yellow gold with a rough diamond and she made exactly what I wanted. It is gorgeous and now my favourite piece of jewellery, which I wear almost every day." Jen (February 2011)

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for my amazing engagement ring! I could tell instantly that Howard had done his homework, when he opened the ring box I knew it was one of your rings. I honestly couldn't have chosen a better ring for myself! It's so beautiful and completely unique. Now all I need to know is if you can make us some wedding rings that would complement the engagement ring? It would be the icing on the cake, shop bought factory rings just wouldn't work!" Gemma (January 2011)

"When my partner and I decided to commission an engagement ring we were quite specific about what we wanted, and working with Ruth made it possible to have something perfect for us. She went out of her way to ensure we had a wide range of gems to choose from and made lots of suggestions we could take on board. We will treasure our ring always, and working with Ruth and having one of her one of a kind beautiful designs, has really added to its sentimental value". Rachel (December 2010)

'My ring is absolutely beautiful and knowing it was designed just for me makes it all the more special.  I am so thrilled to have a ring which is unique.' Joan (December 2010)

'I am delighted with the ring I commissioned and love the organic nature of Ruth's Cave range. I derive real pleasure from wearing this piece of jewellery, especially knowing that nothing else will be identical'. Inga (October 2010)

"I just wanted to say what a fantastic ring you created. Gemma was so pleased with it. Thanks for all your help." Jon (September 2010)

"I am so pleased with my lovely, unique ring - many thanks. I was impressed by the way you were able to adapt your design to incorporate my love of bling in whatever colour stone and size I wished for!  I also love the fact that no one has a ring quite like mine, your creation is a million miles away from the churned out offerings on the highstreet. I hope to have another piece one day to complement the ring ( I have my eye on your necklaces)." Tori (September 2010)
