"Just to let you know that I asked Fran and she said yes! She absolutely adores the ring, and loves the story behind it.
Thank you so very much for all your hard work and cooperation over these last few months. You really have made the most wonderful ring for my fiancée, and for that you have my deepest gratitude."

"My ring arrived this afternoon. What a wonderful way to receive my new wedding ring. It was entirely unexpected.
The ring is beautiful and exactly fits the brief. Thank you so much for such an excellent service."
"So happy that I commissioned Sarah to design, and create, the beautiful bespoke engagement ring for my now fiance.
Sarah offered to meet me on a client day to London and brought a selection of different stones, rings etc, and talked me through the different options. This was incredibly helpful, and made me feel much more relaxed about choosing a bespoke design.
The final design, a bi-colour oval sapphire with two smaller diamonds set away from the central stone, is absolutely perfect. My fiance loves it. She has a heterochromia (blue eyes, one with a speck of green), so the bi-colour sapphire adds a really personal touch.
The whole process was really easy, nothing but good things to say. Would definitely recommend Sarah to others thinking about buying an engagement ring."

“My experience of Audrey Claude has been flawless and joyous from start to finish. In my experience, there are few designers that maintain such high ethical standards whilst also creating beautiful jewellery. It was for this reason that I sought out the services of Sarah to help me design an engagement ring for my future wife.
As part of the design process, Sarah took on board all my scattergun ideas whilst also seeking to understand the person she was ultimately designing the piece for. The result was a design that so perfectly fitted with my expectations and also went beyond what I thought possible to achieve.
During the design process Sarah was accommodating and made herself available to meet in London several times to ensure that I was happy with the final piece. She also hand delivered the engagement ring to me and it was accompanied by a small keepsake book which recorded the making of the ring. A simple but wonderful idea. The ring itself is stunning. It elegantly bares the marks of a handcrafted piece which makes it truly unique."

"I would thoroughly recommend Audrey Claude to anyone looking for ethical jewellery. Meetings with Sarah were a joy! Sarah explained her passion for using materials which are traceable and have as little environmental/human impact as possible. My partner and I got to see some of her designs and sample rings and we knew straight away Sarah would be making our bespoke engagement ring! The design process felt fun and informal, Sarah was really patient and made sure we were 100% satisfied and allowed tweaks to be made along the way. Needless to say we are looking forward to using Audrey Claude again in the near future!!"
