What our customers say about us
Braithwaites Jewellers gave me such amazingly good service. I ordered an item on the Internet and it was delivered in a few days beautifully gift wrapped and with my address on the parcel written in the most exquisite handwriting. My husband was incredibly jealous of the calligraphy. (he's a doctor) All told a very special experience. Thank you Braithwaites.’
Best place around very helpful and lovely guy. Love my mantle clock hopefully it will go for many years’
‘Recently brought a broken ring to Braithwaites to repair, and it was the most thorough and professional service I could have asked for – and incredibly good value for money. My ring looks brand new thanks to their excellent standard of care; I would definitely recommend to anybody.’
‘This is your place for your engagement ring. As a first time diamond buyer I received lots of guidance and advice that completely met my needs. Attention to detail and availability for follow up questions were second to none, definitely a place I will trust for any future purchase. I personally recommended it to all my friends. Thank you!!’
‘Our first experience with Frank & Diane was buying my wife’s engagement ring and given the exceptional service, where every single detail was given careful consideration to ensure it was perfect for us, we have always gone back! I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.’
‘A superb independent jeweller with great service. Whilst based in York, I’m based in London and therefore after discussions on the phone and photos sent across through email, a selection of jewellery meeting my requirements was brought to London to view. No pressure to purchase, however, due to the careful work done beforehand, jewellery (necklace and earrings) successfully bought. Recommend to anyone.’
‘We bought and found our wedding rings with this jewellers and were so impressed by the quality of service and final products. I was being really indecisive about what kind of band to get and received excellent support to choose what would look best with my engagement ring. Thank you!’
‘Have received excellent service and advice every time I’ve been in here. It’s a lovely and friendly, family-run jewellers and I’d recommend to anyone!’
We purchased our wedding rings at R.A.Braithwaites and had an amazing experience from start to finish. The customer service was second to none, with a lot of care taken to understand what was important to us and exploring all the options around materials, budget etc. We were over the moon with our wedding rings which we felt were such an important part of our big day, being a keepsake that reminds you forever! Having had such a positive experience we didn’t hesitate to go back when I had the trauma of losing the stone from my engagement ring (purchased elsewhere). The stress was taken out of that situation by Braithwaites and they went the extra mile at their busiest time of year to complete my replacement ring in time for it to be under the Christmas Tree! The quality is exceptional and they recommended a different setting for my stone to avoid the same scenario again. Will always look to them first for any jewellery needs and can’t recommend them highly enough. ‘
The box arrived this morning ... each are beautifully gift wrapped and look safe and sound ... I have looked at one (the surprise for me!! - well somebody has to organize these things - and at least the other three employees will be well pleased) and they do look nice an elegant ... a good weight and colour too.
Thank you both so much for taking care of this ... sorry it was such short notice ... but you turned up with the goods in the end and on time ... that's the sort of service I like. I hope we have occasion to do business again in the future. (However, I am not planning on another 30 years service).
Just to say: "Thank you for the cross and chain."
I received it yesterday 28th.Nov. It arrived safely and I am very pleased with it.
Your parcel has been received safe and sound - but I have not unwrapped the clock as you have wrapped it so nicely as a gift - I shall be seeing my son this weekend and presenting it to him for his 21st birthday then.
With thanks and best wishes
Many thanks for dealing with this so promptly Frank. The parcel has arrived, beautifully wrapped, in time for our special dinner this evening! I'm sure it will be well received,
Thanks for dealing with the order so promptly. My daughter loved the present!
A much belated (though sooner intended!) message to you to thank you for the sale in December.
The chain arrived in time, is beautiful and just what we’d wanted – it fit the bill perfectly.
You went beyond the call of duty to get it right for us and we were very, very grateful.
I must say I am very impressed with the presentation of the ring. I haven't opened it to check it because I don't want to spoil it.
Many thanks for prompt delivery and the first class service I have received.
I just wanted to let you know that my husband was over the moon with his
ring. He loved the presentation of it aswell.
Thank you very much for the great service and quality ring.
I did receive the ring this morning.
It is absolutely perfect, beautiful in fact and packaging was superb.
I stumbled across this shop on line last year and made a couple of purchases from yourselves. Being so happy with the service I received, it was my first thought to use your website again. The service is excellent, the products are exactly as they are described and perfect quality and as I said, the packaging is second to none.
Thank you very much - my husband was delighted with his ring.
I got the watch in the mail today and it is beautiful. thank
you for everything. I know my mother is going to love it.
Just a note of thanks for the prompt and efficient delivery of the Bernex Nurses Fob Watch, ordered by phone on Monday and received this morning.
A pleasant surprise was finding the watch beautifully gift wrapped - it will stay that way until Christmas morning!
