Testimonials from Happy Clients
“I’m here to help you find the greatest pleasure, satisfaction and delight with your jewelry.” – Calla Gold
The really incredible thing is that the ring looks different in every light, and I find myself staring at it because there is so much detail and beauty from all angles. I am not quite used to wearing such a beautiful piece yet, but it certainly makes me feel special and I feel so lucky that James wanted to make sure I have a ring to wear that I love and that is special to both of us.
I cannot thank you enough for all you did to help us to create the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen. – Camille
Over the years, your talents have produced very happy birthdays and anniversaries, but this one is in a class by itself. I am delighted, and touched, by the obvious expenditure of time, creativity and craftsmanship that created this masterpiece in miniature.
We were on the island of Iona on my birthday, having supper next to a window overlooking the Island, with the Abbey and ocean spread before us, when J handed me my birthday present. When I opened the box, it literally took my breath away. As a priest, and as a wife, the piece is deeply meaningful to me. Such deep thought and care, and flawless execution. It brought tears to my eyes, and an enormous smile to my lips. Each time I have examined it since, I feel renewed awe.
Thank you for working so patiently with J and bringing such care to your work. Your talents produce lovely results, indeed, but also touch hearts. – C. S.
“Calla, I had over half a dozen rave reviews the next day and the day after. Your presentation Revitalize Your Jewelry Wardrobe was stunning according to many people and revolutionary according to some others! Thank you so much.” – Dr. Judith Gerhart
“I have so many beautiful designs from Calla that I get to chose one for every day of the week! Her work is so awesome I will never have to buy anything but stones so she can design around them!” – Debra Del Rosso Uyesaka (posted on the Calla Gold Jewelry Facebook page)
“I love Calla Gold Jewelry and Calla herself. I have known Calla and Calla Gold Jewelry for over 10 years. She has made custom pieces for me that are so beautiful, so philosophically aligned with me, so much my style, every single piece fits me naturally. I never tire of them and cannot wear them enough. They bring me great satisfaction. I have purchased non-custom pieces from her that are unique and lovely. She has repaired and remade jewelry for me, she cleans, buffs and renews my pieces and makes everything look new again. Calla is the greatest Jewel of all. She comes to you in a private showing, a true sit-down service that allows you to relax, be honest about yourself with her, and with ease, respect and expert skill, she will produce not only what you want, it will be beyond your highest expectations. Calla Gold Jewelry, the retail store without walls is an experience you will want in your life forever. I won’t shop anywhere else. Period.” – Miriam Lindbeck
The most recent piece of jewelry she designed for me was a ring where she used gemstones from three sets of earrings and diamonds from a ring, all from jewelry I hadn’t been wearing. Now I wear them all, frequently. Thank you, Calla.” – Charla
“When I was asked what kind of engagement ring I wanted, I had no idea. I sent my fiancé Calla’s eBook – I knew we needed her expertise, eduaparcation, creative talent and design savvy. I don’t know how we would have had the ring result we had without Calla. Calla Gold is my personal jeweler and a friend for life. She really understands her clients – her passion for her profession is contagious!” – Lorrie Thomas Ross
“Your beautiful jewelry is so much more beautiful because of the love and laughter that went into every piece!” – Lynn K. Jones
“Calla Gold Is the best! I needed big time help with my engagement ring and she came through with the PERFECT ring. My fiancee is so happy and looks at it and admires it and me daily. If you’re looking for something but a bit lost in all the choices, just give Calla a call.” – Tim C.
“Thanks a million to Calla for your thoughtfulness and expertise in helping us create exactly what we had envisioned. The whole experience could not have been more perfect…we both feel so lucky!” Tina, whose fiancé Aaron proposed with a custom designed engagement ring using diamonds from a piece of inherited jewelry.
Wine is delicate and constantly evolving. Uncork a bottle and you’re opening a wonderful time capsule of art, science and history. Inherited jewelry is similar – it is a tangible reminder of a time, place and person. While wine is always in flux, diamonds are strong, resilient and resistant to change – much like my grandmother who left me her beloved watch. Thank you again for taking my grandmother’s gaudy watch and my boring ring and turning them into something fabulous! You are a star!” – Anne Burns
“I am so excited about my wedding band which Calla has designed for me.” – Adriana Z.
“Calla, thank you so much for making me the most beautiful ring for me. You knew exactly what I wanted and made my new engagement ring fit so perfectly with my other bands. You achieved the look I wanted. It was so important that the ring feel like it was a part of the set. I look and stare at it every day! I get numerous comments from all my friends! Even a few comments from strangers! You’re the best!” – Amy
“I’m thoroughly enjoying my friendship ring designed by Calla Gold Jewelry. I have just as much fun with her as she has with me!!” – Linda
“Calla is truly amazing at what she does. I needed someone to help me incorporate my grandmother’s engagement and wedding rings into new rings for my wedding. It was an emotional process for me and Calla was full of ideas and support the entire way through. I trusted her completely with something that was incredibly close to my heart, and I’m really glad I did. My new rings that she designed and crafted are stunning and exactly what I was hoping for, and I get to carry my grandmother with me everywhere I go. Thank you Calla!” – Angie B.
“It doesn’t get any better than this! Calla gives you the personal service that jewelry stores are lacking!” – Jeremy B.
