Client Testimonials

Some of our clients have taken the time to comment on the rings we have made and how the process and  experience was for them.

Although it is not possible to list all here,  I would like to thank everyone for their kind words.  It makes our job so much more worthwhile when we receive such heartfelt praise for our work.

Kind regards,

Ian and the Ellissi team.

Hi Ian,
Chris and I cannot thank you enough for the most beautiful engagement ring we have ever seen!    We are so incredibly happy with it and I cannot begin to tell you how many beautiful comments I get about it every day.
Throughout the entire process you have understood exactly what we were looking for and your dedication, honesty and craftsmanship really exceeded our expectations, right down to the after sales care in getting the ring the exact size for me.
Your patience and understanding sets you apart from any other jeweller we spoke to, we knew as soon as we sat down with you the very first time,  that we were in the best of hands.   You took the time to listen to our ideas and really educated us about the entire process of finding the perfect diamond.
Thank you again for making this experience truly memorable and easy.   We wish you all the success in the future and I know you’ll make every other client feel as warm and special as you made us feel.    My ring is unbelievably gorgeous and shiny!    We cannot wait to see you again soon to have our wedding rings made and to tell everyone we know about Ellissi!
With warm regards,
Emily and Chris
Dear Ian
We wanted to send a note to you to thank you for designing and making Melinda’s engagement ring.   From a few ideas at the start from Melinda, to a raft of emails from Chris, you managed to pinpoint exactly what we were after.
It is a testament to your patience and skill, and of course your ability to make the ring is astounding from the finished product.
The engagement ring is perfect and Melinda absolutely loves it.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon for our wedding bands.
Chris & Melinda
Dear Ian,
A brief note to extend my sincere gratitude to you and your team for the sensational experience, understanding, technical ability and importantly, the truly special engagement ring you produced.
In less than six weeks you took a design concept, thoroughly trawled the world to secure the perfect diamond, enhanced the design with your artisan touch, produced the ring, had it independently valued and delivered it within stringent budget constraints whilst maintaining frequent and professional customer interface.
We are receiving countless compliments about the ring, its intricacies and design detail.   With much pleasure we refer intrigued people to yourself and the Ellissi website, hopefully some of these leads will transform into sales for you!   They are well deserved.
The measured approach with which you dissected and explained the minefield that can be diamonds and jewellery is testament to your unique and rare ability to transform vision into reality.   Given Larissa said ‘yes’ I look forward to you meeting her and you producing the wedding band.
Kind Regards,
John & Larissa.
Dear Ian
It’s been over 5 months since Adam popped the question and presented me with my absolutely stunning engagement ring!   Since receiving it, I haven’t stopped admiring it.   I look at everyday without fail!   It’s a beautiful piece of jewellery… a work of art!
Adam was so pleased with your professionalism and helpful attitude in helping him create the perfect ring for me.   I look forward to meeting you when we are ready to have our wedding rings made.

The diamond ring you made for me in December was exactly what my partner wanted.   The style and size of the stones matched perfectly.   The ring has attracted a lot of attention since she started wearing it.   Your professional approach and helpful advice made the purchase over the net a very easy affair.
I would recommend your service to anyone who is looking for a quality product at the right price.   I will most certainly purchase another ring from you in the near future.
Hi Ian,
Ring’s here. It’s absolutely beautiful.  I love it :)    Thanks soooooo much.   It’s even more stunning in real life.   Thank you so much for your friendly advice, information and excellent service.   We were quite apprehensive about the long-distance situation and the logistics, but thanks to your experience and knowledge, you took the worry out of it for us, so we could relax and wait excitedly for the ring to be made and count down the days until it arrived (I think I nearly wore out your website admiring the photo of the ring at every possible opportunity).
I fell in love with the design when I saw it on your website and nothing I saw elsewhere even came close.   To have it here now & and admire it’s beauty as a symbol of our love, is a dream come true.
Thanks for making it such a special start to our happy life together.
Kind regards,
Debbie & Pete,  (South Australia )
Dear Ian,
Chris and I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank you for turning our ring concept into an incredible engagement ring.   The ring is absolutely perfect.
I constantly get comments from people as to how beautiful it is.   The ring makes my finger sparkle as the light hits the diamonds from all angles and it looks truly spectacular.
There can be nothing but praise for you and Ellissi, amongst all the other jewellers we visited you showed an interest in helping us choose and design the engagement ring.    The experience in dealing with you has been a pleasure from start to finish and the small personal touches recommended by you only further enhanced the experience for both of us.
All who have seen the ring have commented on its beauty and how unique the design is and we owe you and your team our heartfelt gratitude for bringing it together for us so quickly and with such attention to detail.
Thank-you to all involved from Chris and I.
Chris and Karima ( Melbourne )
Dear Ian,
Thank you for creating such a stunning piece of jewellery for me.   I love it more each day.   The diamond is amazing, the sparkle and colours reflected in the champagne diamond are truly beautiful.   I am so happy that I trusted your instinct (opposite to popular opinion) and my faith in you to decipher what it was I wanted out of the ring.   I have not regretted spending the money on it for one single moment.   I am a very proud owner indeed and will be telling everyone about you.
Your commitment to me before you even had a confirmed sale, in answering my extensive list of questions, providing honest advice and an education in diamonds, gave me the confidence to proceed with a significant purchase over the internet.   Your listening skills, patience and perception make you far more than ‘just a design jeweller’.    I think that you are an artist who is blessed with a very natural and wonderful way with people.   You never let me down at any time or gave me any cause to worry about my impending purchase.    I will actually miss our chats.    I wish you and your family all the success you deserve to enjoy!
Best Wishes for the future,
Shelley :o)

Hi Ian
Just to say a BIG THANKYOU again for my stunning new engagement ring!   It’s absolutely beautiful and has just blown us away!
You have been an absolute pleasure to work with – I haven’t received such exceptional customer service for a very long time!
Thankyou again
Todd & Jade.
NSW / Australia
We hope this email finds you well.   Whilst a little late, we wanted to send you a sincere note of thanks.
Malcolm and I would like to truly thank you for your time and dedication for creating an engagement ring that is simple, elegant and unique.
This is exactly what I described to you on our first visit to meet you and to understand more about what was possible.    We are so pleased with the result – it is simply a beautiful ring!    I have received many comments and continue to do so daily – my ring states the ‘WOW’ factor!
I really enjoy wearing it and catch myself and others looking at it all the time!
Your craftsmanship and expertise is first class and something that you so humbly presented to us from the very beginning.    You were patient, taking the time to explain the intricacies of stones and ring design with such precision, never rushing us through or making the process complicated.    We really enjoyed the experience and will be recommending you and your work to everyone.
Thank you again for creating a quality piece of jewellery for us.
Kind regards,
Prue & Malcolm.

Hi Ian,
Alex finally proposed and with the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen!   It couldn’t be more perfect.   You knew exactly what I wanted and delivered a breathtaking masterpiece.   I can’t stop looking at it, I’m extremely proud to wear it on my finger for the rest of my life.   Your  customer service is one of the best that I’ve experienced and your constant communication confirmed our decision to purchase from you.
Thank you so much, we will definitely return to you to design our wedding rings.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Kind regards,
Colleen & Alex.
Hi Ian,
I have been meaning to let you know how pleased we both are with the stunning ring you were able to create.    When Marty finally got around to giving it to me,  I was so ecstatic that I didn’t want to look!    But when I did, it took my breath away,  just as the diamond had when I first laid eyes on it.
Thank you for helping me to achieve such a wonderful piece that I will admire for the rest of my life!
I think the challenge for you will lie in the wedding band, but until then, rest easy and know that we are both so very happy and proud of it.    Even Marty is so proud and thinks its is stunning and compares every other ring we see to it now!
So, until later in the year or perhaps next year, take care and keep up the fantastic work!.
Many thanks,
Lainie & Marty.
Hi Ian,
I have had my ring just over 2 weeks now & I still can’t stop admiring it.   I’m so happy with how it turned out.   I can’t believe that you managed to get into my head like that & make exactly what I was describing.    I thought after I’d had it a while I’d get used to the size but it still looks so big.    You’ve done a beautiful job.
Thank you so much for all the time you spent with Mike & I.   You were very patient.    One of my girlfriends is getting engaged soon & I’ll make sure to hand on your business card to her.
Thanks again for such a gorgeous ring.
Kind Regards,
Kim   ( Melbourne )
Hi Ian,
I have only just collected the ring from the post office yesterday afternoon.   It is absolutely beautiful, but I have to wait two more weeks for my birthday to actually wear it.
You could not have done any better, I am really happy and excited about it.    I will certainly recommend you to my daughters and anyone else who will listen.    The ring just sparkles so much it will dazzle everyone.    You were great to deal with and so helpful, I hope I am able to buy something from you again.
Thank you for everything.
Glad   ( NSW )
Hi Ian,
I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done, Erin was over the moon,  she couldn’t believe how good it looked.    She was speechless.
Thanks also for making thing so easy for us, after our last experience with the other jeweller and how quickly you had it made.
We really appreciate everything.
Cheers Brad and Erin    (Melbourne)
Dear Ian,
Wow!   What can I say?   The perfect diamond, perfect engagement ring, finished off with the perfect proposal!
We have had countless compliments on our ring and I have not hesitated in recommending Ellissi to everyone I know.
Ian, thank you for making this such an easy process and for looking after us in such a professional way, not an easy thing to do from the other side of the country!!
We will be in touch soon to talk about wedding bands.
Lisa ( Perth WA )
Hi Ian,
The ring has arrived and is absolutely exquisite!   I am very impressed with the quality and workmanship, I cannot thank you enough.
Tess will absolutely love it!
I thank you again and am positive we will do business again in the future (wedding bands in a year or so)
Trent.  ( Perth / WA)
Hi Ian
I have just received the engagement ring and it looks amazing!
I really appreciate all your assistance throughout the process and the time you have taken to ensure that I have a beautiful ring to give that meets my specifications.
Also the fantastic service you provided enabled this purchase to be completed at distance via email and phone.
We will certainly be spreading the word through our friends and the craftsmanship of the ring will speak for itself.
Thank you very much!!

Hi Ian,
My ring… it’s so beautiful I can’t stop looking at it.     Thank you so much for my perfect ring and your help and service since the start.    It was a pleasure dealing with you.   Not only do I have a beautiful ring but also a warm feeling from the service / experience you gave to Daniel and I.
Thanks so much!
Isabella  (Melbourne / VIC)
Hi Ian,
We received the ring yesterday thank you so much.   It’s magnificent!!!    It has exceeded our expectations and we are thrilled to bits with it.
Best regards and thank you once again.
Mecaela and Pablo    (Christchurch / New Zealand).
Hi Ian,
Just wanted to thank you for everything you did for us, in the making of our gorgeous engagement ring.   We are extremely grateful to you for the many hours you spent talking us through the process, the exquisite craftsmanship of our ring, and the wonderful favor you did us in putting up pictures of my ring under a congratulatory note on your website, so family overseas could view it.
Your warmth, integrity and dedication to your craft are much appreciated, and we have had no hesitation in recommending you to others.    Also, four months on, the ring still looks beautiful despite not having been cleaned since it left your studio, and still brings a lot of happiness!
Thanks again for the ‘little’ touches that made the experience so fantastic for us.
Shaku & Bertrand.
Greetings Ian,
I was REALLY impressed by the presentation that you gave to us.    I found it informative and and presented well.
Amy raved about your diamond designs and the design that we saw is what I want to go with.    I have seen nothing online that is even close to what you produce so your ring design is a non-negotiable in the discussion.
Again, thank you for a beautiful diamond.    Amy can’t take her eyes off it!    She said that it didn’t matter if she had a ring or not, but when I look at her transfixed on the sparkle I know better.
Thanks TJ.

Hi Ian,
The ring arrived today.   It’s absolutely perfect.    Thank you so much for all your help and patience.    It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made but you made it a lot easier than it could have been.    I would definitely recommend you to anyone who wanted a ring for any occasion.     Thanks again.
Kind Regards,

Hi Ian,
I can’t tell you how grateful I am for this amazing ring.   I was lost for words, but now I have found them.   It is truly spectacular, and I appreciate your hard work and exacting methods…   Excellent service from beginning to end.    You are a true artisan and that arises from commitment, passion and experience.
Thank you so much, I love it!

Hi Ian,
Just writing to thank you for my exquisite ring…. which Richie finally got around to giving me.    It is even more beautiful than I imagined and I can’t stop looking at it!
In a few weeks when we are less busy I will contact you about making wedding bands and also some ear rings.
Thanks again,
