At Nicholas Wylde we invest not only our expertise and artistic vision but also our time to ensure that customers become long-time friends as well as clients, trusting our advice and always happy to return.
We understand that this is a very important element and that the beloved items of jewellery we create, link us intrinsically with the cherished memories of our valued customers.
This is evidenced so well in the story of Nick Harvey and his soon-to-be-wife Liz. Nick first came into Nicholas Wylde in 1998 and he takes the story up from there:
“I happened upon your shop back in 1998 when shopping in Bath. I stumbled upon a bespoke designed necklace in your window, made from local slate and silver, it was very unusual piece which really struck me. I returned sometime later to purchase it, fortunately it was still for sale but unfortunately there weren’t any ear rings that went with it! But to Nicholas Wylde this presented no problem. Nicholas and I sat together; he did his magic and within a very short time had conjured up a set of drop earrings complimenting the necklace.
At that point I really realized what I had found. A craftsman with a commitment and passion for excellence, who clearly has a lateral mind, flexible and tolerant enough to accommodate others dreams and still able to combine these with his own aspirations.
Some years later in 2007, we needed an engagement ring based on baguette diamonds set in white gold and once again, I considered no other designer but Nicholas. I would present the ring on holiday in Africa over the Christmas period. At sun set, on a cliff edge, over the Great Rift Valley with a bottle of Champagne, on one knee, the deed was done and I had my fiancée. Liz and I have known each other for forty years but it was still very emotional and your work was instantly recognizable and appreciated. Liz fully understands the “Wylde Effect” and influence…. it was clearly a great success!
The journey continues, as Liz and I are to be married this year, there are the wedding rings to be considered and made. We eagerly look forward to the Wylde results in the very near future. We believe that Nicholas Wylde has a very bright future and feel lucky to have been a part of that development. We wish you all the best and look forward to working with you again.”
We so enjoy making not only beautifully crafted jewellery items but also to have been a sparkling part of people’s lives – that’s the Wylde Effect at work!
