Ian and his wife’s story:
“My wife’s special birthday was approaching along with hints that she would like to find a special piece of jewellery to mark the occasion. We were due to go up to Bath and I searched the internet and came across Nicholas Wylde who looked to have some very interesting pieces on their website and also undertook bespoke assignments.
We travelled up to Bath early to make sure we had time to do some investigatory work and chose to go into Nicholas Wylde’s first which, as it turned out, was a very good choice. Initially we advised them what we wanted to achieve and they brought out various designs for us to see and narrow down our requirements. It was quickly established that we really needed to speak to Nicholas and get something bespoke designed for us.
I have to say that we both loved the process of designing the ring and found it fascinating. Nicholas is very relaxed but gets a lot of information about what you do and do not like. There had been a bangle in the bespoke section of their website which we both liked and this became the loose base for our design. Amazingly, he only had to draw it out twice and we had exactly what we wanted. We then had to think about the colour of stones that we wanted and within what we felt was a very short amount of time we were extremely excited about what the real thing was going to look like.
My wife suffers from arthritis in the finger that the ring was to be worn on. We had been somewhat disappointed as regards the suggestions for overcoming this in other shops which really were inelegant solutions. This problem had been taken on board by Nicholas and he told us about the “Superfit ™” ring which would overcome the problem. It may be an expensive solution but it is also a very clever, unobtrusive solution and worth every penny.
However, whilst the ring was going to be fantastic, my wife now knew about it and I decided to contact Nicholas to talk to him about whether a bangle could be made as well. He sent through the proposed design and I loved it. The go ahead was given and I am afraid to say that on her birthday I told her about the bangle because I could not keep the secret any longer.
Nicholas arranged a time for us to collect the jewellery and it was one of those days that you know you will remember forever. The jewellery was absolutely stunning and will be worn with pride on every possible occasion. We are so lucky to have found such a talented designer, whose designs can be transformed by his team into such beautiful jewellery pieces. The bad news for me is that my wife is planning a return visit!”
