I discovered John on a Christian website. We were exchanging views on our faith and religion. During conversation, I discovered he was a Jeweller, and checked out his website. I told him about the gold bridge I had removed from my mouth, years ago. I ask if he would make me a cross, and expressed to him that I was a Methodist. The design he came up with was very similar to the Methodist symbol, the cross and the flame, only much more beautiful!! I like the combination of the gold flame over the silver cross. As John suggested, the twisted gold flame picks up the light. I've had numerous compliments. John is a great skilled and creative craftsman, not to mention a man of high standards. I feel blessed to have in my possession, a piece of his creativity.

Hi John,

Thank you so much for the beautiful ring and pendant! I was thrilled when I received them today by courier. I can’t believe how perfect they are, and how pleased I am with the final product considering we never met and I live in New Zealand!!! The only communication we had was via phone and email, but you managed to bring my ideas to life wonderfully. I would have never been able to wear my Grandmother’s rings as they were (far too small and not my style), but now I can wear the remodeled version every day and have my Grandmother’s memory with me always. Thank you so much!

I was so thrilled with the work that John did on my engagement ring, that I asked him to add a .50ct diamond to the 3 existing diamonds to make it a four stone ring. I wanted the basic design to remain the same so the addition had to compliment the existing ring. The end result was better than I’d hoped for, so much so that the ring is often admired & commented on. I’d recommend John’s work to everyone.

I met John McGeorge over 7 years ago and Lady Luck sure was on my side. John has made at least 10 or more 1st class pieces of the finest Jewellery I have ever owned.

This man is a rare find and a Gem in himself. He would be the most honest Jeweller I know if there is only just a bit of gold left from your jewellery this man gives it back to you.

In today's world this in itself is rare John's unique designs and craftsman ship are of the highest quality his prices are always well below shop prices and last but not least John is mobile he comes to you.

I do hope John will still be around for many years to come his professional and personal advice as well as his genius personal designs are of great value to our world, and I am proud and honored to have John as MY SPECIAL PERSONAL JEWELLER

When my boyfriend and I began discussing marriage, I knew I wanted to have a memorable engagement ring, something different from everyone else. I was familiar with the high quality of work that John McGeorge makes as he had made other jewellery for me in the past including a ruby and diamond S shaped ring along with other dress rings and pendants. He had also made jewellery for my sister. I thought it may take a while to figure out what I liked so I met with John before there was too much talk about getting engaged.

It happened in much the same way as the other times in that; I wanted something that couldn’t be found in most store windows, I had an idea of stone shapes and colour and I knew what I did not want! John did quite a few sketches and gave me various angles of each to see what they'd be like in the flesh. I wanted a marquis solitaire high-set ring in yellow gold set on an angle.

My boyfriend met with John and chose the diamond and organized the whole thing unbeknownst to me. He was able to take my ideas, sketch and then make to perfection my dream engagement ring. I always get praise for my lovely ring when others notice it. John also made my wedding ring with 9 channel set diamonds to compliment the engagement ring. Oh and he also made my husband Michael's wedding ring.

John has regularly made pieces for me since we met in 2003. Every piece has been hand-crafted to the highest quality, and everyone who sees his work is impressed. He is able to take my simple descriptions and produce exactly what I meant to say, and to get it right the first time. Both my wife and I wear John's jewellery with pride. Don't buy a mass-produced item, talk to John and discover the pride of wearing made to order jewellery.

To whom it may concern,

I would just like to share how happy I am to own some beautiful pieces of jewellery that have been hand crafted by John, each piece has been designed with the utmost high quality craftsmanship that John employs in his work, which he does painstakingly over many hours of labor and love he has for is work.

John has not only designed copies of antique jewellery for me, he has also restored numerous pieces of beautiful old estate lots that I have acquired through the antique shop I own.

There would be no hesitation in recommended John for any jewellery work that you may require.

Yours Sincerely,

To Whom It May Concern,

I have known John McGeorge for almost ten years. He has, for the most part made diamond and gold pieces for me out of scrap gold and old pieces that I have no longer wanted. Among those pieces have been gold and diamond earrings, two solid 9 ct gold bangles, a set of diamond and 18 ct gold earrings, and two diamond, white gold and yellow gold pendants.

He has also redesigned pieces for me among these is an 18 ct amethyst with a gold rub over setting. John has repaired much of my old jewellery which was in need of his care and skill. I have always been happy with John’s work and will not hesitate to recommend him to any one who wants honesty, integrity and excellent workmanship.

Yours sincerely,

John McGeorge designed and handcrafted my engagement ring. I had looked around for at least 12 months beforehand and had never come across a ring I truly loved. My husband knew I wanted an original design. My husband worked with John on the ring and it was truly unique and unlike anything I had seen before. John made my engagement ring dream become a reality.

Good Morning John,

Today I am wearing my pendant necklace that you designed and made for me. I have lost count of the amount of comments I have received. It looks fabulous. In fact its heaps better than I could even imagined or thought. You interpreted my idea even better than me, and produced a magnificent piece of jewellery that has become something I am proud of and can hand down to my children. Thanks again.

Kind Regards,

Dear John,

Following the loss of my wife I engaged you to design and manufacture a dress ring from our wedding rings and add diamonds from my wife's engagement ring. I entrusted you to undertake the work because of your extensive experience as a Manufacturing Jeweler and the respect in which your work is held within the industry. Your professional advice, design options and guidance were invaluable. The dress ring that you subsequently manufactured was magnificent. Please accept my personal appreciation for the wonderful work that you did for me.

John has designed and handcrafted new pieces of jewellery for me, as well as updated and remodeled other pieces. It is fantastic to wear original, unique and personalized jewellery that is noticed.

Thank you John!

I have known John for nearly 2 years, in that time he has done some fantastic work for me such as repairs, and re-sizing. He has just finished working on a old fashioned ring has turned it into a really amazing pendant, I can thoroughly recommend him to turn that something old that you have in a draw into something new and modern.

"I have used John's skills a number of times over the last few years and received excellent and efficient results. From repairs to my mother's sapphire bracelet and gold chain, to my wedding rings that were getting very thin with age and wear, my husbands wedding ring that needed resizing and my daughter's garnet ring which John replaced when the garnet chipped. His very pleasant approach makes me more than happy to recommend John in all areas of jewellery work."
