He is always prompt in replying to my inquiries and requests. I do not live in Houston so I place my orders and communicate my requests through emails.

"Bruce has been our family's go-to jeweler for well over 30 years. Over the year's he's designed & created, upgraded, updated, repaired, embellished, and appraised all sorts of jewelry for us. In addition to being 100% trustworthy, he is a very gifted artist in many mediums. He can take your ideas and make them into gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces and his attention to detail ensures that you will get a unique piece that is of the highest quality. I recommend him highly"!
G. RICHARDSON, HOUSTON, TEXAS
"I can't say enough great things about working with Bruce. My husband and I went to him to design our wedding sets and my engagement ring. From finding the right stone, to walking us through the design process - concept, CAD drawings, molds, and the final product - he was the best person we could have ever partnered with. He has the expertise and the resources for sure, but he also cares a great deal and it shows. He made what could have been a stressful or intimidating process into the most fun we could have had. If you want to design something new that is sure to become an heirloom, or if you need to re-imagine an heirloom you have inherited into something you love, Bruce is the one to work with. We love Bruce and I don't hesitate in giving him my highest recommendation".

"Bruce custom made both my 18K gold wedding band and my husband's over 15 years ago. I showed Bruce a picture of a band & setting that I liked and he customized it to my specifications. They are still beautiful and examples of excellent craftsmanship. I've received numerous compliments over the years on my wedding ring. He is a very nice person and has a lovely family. I bring my rings back to Bruce for cleaning; I don't trust anyone else".

"The purpose of this letter is to thank you for the quality work you have done for me and to recommend your work to others. In a day when low cost is chosen versus quality, it is good to know someone who does excellent quality work at a very reasonable prices. Since we met in 1980, you have designed and made a number of pieces for me, including a pendant, two rings, and helped me with getting my watch repaired. Not only have I developed a trust for you personally, but also for your excellent taste and workmanship. As you know, I have recommended your work on several occasions and you have never violated my trust. My wish for you would be success in whatever you do."
Eddie froehner, owner, the sporting life on mid lane. houston, texas
"I had a fantastic experience with this company. I contacted Bruce to redesign a ring for me using my existing stones and metal. I contacted Bruce to redesign some rings of mine into something new. He spent quite a bit of time, was thoroughly professional in our initial meeting and really listened to my design ideas and what I was looking for in a finished ring. He also thought of details necessary to the construction that I never would have thought of myself. He gave me a thorough itemized list of the total cost up front during our first meeting and was punctual in his timeline and the ring was ready in the exact time he estimated. The finished product was even better than I could have hoped for and the whole experience was smooth, professional and fantastic. I will definitely tell my friends and family members about this jeweler and will be happy to continue to do business with him in the future."
k. chilton houston, texas
"We wanted to use gems that we already had and have a custom ring designed based on my wife's style preference. Bruce sat down with us, drew up sketches based on my wife's desires and really listened to what she wanted. He worked with us a bit on the pricing and took his time to make sure we would be happy. The result was great and my wife is still thrilled with her ring. It was a great experience. Having attempted the same process at other jewelers in the past, we will not go anywhere else for this type of work again."
b. hoyem houston, texas
"I have known Bruce close to 20 years. He has custom designed a couple of spectacular pieces for me! I have also bought other pieces from him, and he takes care of my husbands watches. He is very knowledgeable & his prices are fair. I trust no one else with my jewelry. It's always a pleasure visiting & doing business with Bruce".
D. BEAULIEU HOUSTON, TEXAS
"Simply amazing. From the customer care, quality of craftsmanship, communication, and most tangibly, the end product, you will not find a better Jeweler. But the word Jeweler somehow feels inadequate to convey this mans amazing talents. We dropped off a simple gold band with our original wedding diamond, and the custom ring and setting we picked up was absolutely stunning. Thank you Bruce for an amazing experience!"
B.P. HOUSTON, TEXAS
"Bruce did an appraisal on my engagement ring, which was passed down from my sister, and did an amazing job at evaluating the ring and restoring it to its original brilliance. He was very professional and reasonably priced. He was also very flexible and came to my work several times to make the whole process very easy for me. I really appreciated it. He has known my boss for years and has proven to be very trustworthy, knowledgable, and it was a pleasure to do business".
L. FAERMAN HOUSTON, TEXAS
