Testimonials

What our customers say...

What a delight to meet you and Diane and now enjoy the beautiful ring you created. Thank you so much for the personal attention and stunning design.

With gratitude and appreciation,
Elizabeth

P.S. I love wearing art!

Dear Eve, Diane and Gallery staff,

Words cannot begin to express how over the top pleased I am with the ring that was created from two vintage, meaningful rings.  Although I wore it from the moment I left the store yesterday at 3:30, my husband did not have a chance to see it until this afternoon.  He is very pleased as well which is important since the two rings that made this one are from his paternal and maternal grandmothers. Finally, although Steve and I never exchange anniversary gifts (most of the time he forgets the date), this past January we celebrated our 25th anniversary, so this ring was a gift for that milestone. Eve reminded me that garnets are the stone for January and the little green stones in the ring are in fact garnets. How significant, therefore, to have them in this ring that celebrates our wedding as well.  It is truly unique and I will cherish it forever.  Thank you for your attention to detail and patience with me as we met and chose the perfect combination of stones.

Best wishes,
Lisa

Eve,

Confetti RingI am beyond amazed! The stone setting is exquisite. The creativity and attention you put into your work is beyond compare. Visiting with you and chatting about the stone add to the experience and make the piece even more special.

Dear Diane and Cato,

Thank you very much!

I am so touched by the kindness everyone at Eve's has shown to us. It means so much to us that our ring came from Eve Alfillé. 

Thank you for the great advice to be in the moment together during the wedding – we will take it to heart. This is an exciting time and we are so happy to know that our ring comes from such a special, meaningful place.

See you soon (for wedding bands)!

all our best,

Lisa & Alan

Dear Eve,

I want to express my appreciation for the beautiful jewelry you created for me. You were so generous with your time and I learned so much during the process. The results are truly exceptional! I know I will always feel special when I wear these pieces of art.

Dear Eve,

The day of your anniversary party, October 20th, we were out of town. As I dressed for the event that night I celebrated your beautiful jewelry. The luminous pearl and gem pin on my new blue dress; the gold earrings with the lovely pearl drops, and a ring my husband chose for me when your workshop was in your home.

I thought about the pleasure of working with you – your way of transforming ideas into such pleasing works of art.

Congratulations on your many years of designing such imaginative jewelry!

With warm good wishes

Phyllis

Dear Eve,

I keep finding every excuse to wear my most wonderful necklace. It truly is a showstopper, as I have been receiving so many compliments not only on the beautiful buttery pearls, but also on the clever and gorgeous clasp you created. 

Thank you so much for designing and making such a special piece of wearable art. I think it is a masterpiece!

Fondly,

Pam 

I went to Eve Alfille Gallery & Studio to design a ring for my daughter as a graduation gift. I was able to work with Eve personally, and found her to be exceptionally talented in terms of the creative process, a wonderful listener in terms of what I wanted to create for my daughter, and extremely sensitive to our price point. Eve was able to design something that we were extremely excited to give our daughter for this special occasion, a legacy piece of jewelry that she would have for the rest of her life, for a price that we could afford (after paying for four years of college!) I would definitely recommend Eve Aflille Gallery to anyone who wants high quality jewelry at affordable prices.

Dear Eve –

Mere words seem trivial at best to describe how much we enjoy your beautiful creations. I should be doing a dental commercial – I can't stop smiling! Thank you for your creative deposit. YOU are the jewelry.

Dear Eve Alfillé and company,

Cast in the woods coupleI came into your shop last week with my parents to buy an engagement ring. Eve helped me select the "Castle in the Woods", which my parents and I all loved.  I took the ring back with me to Geneva, Switzerland, and I'm happy to say that my then-girlfriend, Colette, loved it too. She and I are now engaged and plan to be married in the summer of 2012! Everything about the ring is perfect, including the sizing that Eve suggested.

Thanks to all of you for being so helpful and for showing me such lovely work. I'm very glad to have found your store, and I'm sure I'll be back again.

Legos for Ladies...Fun, Fun, Fun!

If I could give this fabulous store more stars, I would. Over the years I have bought several pairs of earrings from Eve. This past holiday season, I wanted some more "fashionable" dangly earrings.

When I went to Eve's, they suggested rather than buy new earrings, just bring in the ones I already had and they would help me update them with removable drops (dangles). Not only was it so much fun trying different combinations with my 8 pairs of earrings, but I ended up with 4 sets of fun and fabulous dangles. Each pair of dangles complimented 2 pairs of earrings..so now I am having a wonderful time mixing and matching the "lego" pieces and enjoying both the earrings I already had and my new, beautiful removable drops!

I ended up with so much more than a new pair of earrings!

thank you again,

Sincerely,

Eve, the engagement ring you helped me design is the most amazing thing EVER! My fiance proposed to me in San Francisco last weekend and I have since gotten a million comments on the ring. You better believe we will come back for the wedding bands! Thanks for making this such an easy task. Your work is incredible.

Inga

I can't tell you how special I feel wearing this ring, knowing my husband and I selected it together and got to work with your artisans every step of the way. It's the most beautiful, meaningful piece of jewelry I own, and I appreciate how much your staff treated it with as much appreciation as they did. It says a LOT about your employees.

I wear the beautiful "Fruit & Vine" ring from the "Les Petits Fruits" collection every day and get complimented on it all the time! I cherish it. My fiancé, gave it to me last September as an engagement ring, and it is finally time to look into getting our wedding rings. It has been an absolute privilege to wear the "Fruit & Vine" ring and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating it!

P.S. I was with my parents this past weekend for my bridal shower, and everyone raved about my mother's black and white diamond necklace (Eve's), her earrings (Eve's), and my ring. I think we convinced all the guests that Eve is the ONLY jeweler worth going to!

 

Dear Eve,

As you may know, I've been admiring your assymetrical running-brook-type rings for many years, and the ring I bought today, "Circle of Delight," is absolutely perfect for me. It sparkles in every type of light, the diamonds are very subtle and interesting, and the weight is perfect--not too heavy to be noticeable. I now understand why you flattened the shape at the top--the rings stays properly oriented, and the flatness show up only when I view it head-on. Then the diamonds give an extra little sparkle not seen at other angles.

I'm enjoying this ring so much that I thought I'd write you a fan letter. Thanks again for your wonderful work. I get so much pleasure from it.

Jan
