Over the years our customers have said some very nice things about us…
Myself and my partner went into VJG on a Saturday afternoon to ask whether they would be able to make our wedding bands. Vicky was very helpful but then completely taken a back when we told her that the wedding was in 15 days!!! She was very concerned that they wouldn’t be done in time so was a bit reluctant to say that they would definitely be ready.
We chose the rings that we wanted which were 18 carat White gold bands with a deep groove in the middle. I also chose to have a diamond set in the middle of mine too. She measured both of us up for the rings there and then. Before the end of the following week, I had been in for a final fitting check and my partner went in on the Saturday. By this stage, my ring had already been sent up to London to have the diamond set.
The following Friday, 13 days after putting the order in, I received a phone call from Vicky to say that the rings were ready!! I couldn’t believe that they were actually done in such a short space of time including having had the diamond set too!!! The rings were just beautiful and exactly what we wanted.
We were completely blown away with it all. The service was second to none and there was nothing that they wouldn’t have done for us.
I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to buy jewellery from or to have it made. All of the staff are so friendly, welcoming and very keen to please.
Vicki you made our very special day perfect. We can’t thank you enough. You are truly awesome
We knew we wanted something different for my engagement ring and as far as I was concerned there was only one place to go. Over the years I have bought many pieces of jewellery from VJG so this is where we headed. We wanted a ring that morphed from engagement to wedding. A single ring that was very special to us.
We were absolutely delighted with the result and then last month we had some more stones added, as we were getting married, and so it became my wedding ring. Both Vicky and Trevor are so kind and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. You always feel welcome to browse, and the new location is both bigger and brighter. It really is a delightful shop and workshop and Worthing is very lucky to have it.
Thank you! Lindy & John Hinsley-Wintle
In praise of Vicky and VJG – A real gay friendly jeweller.
My partner and I went to Vicky after unsuccessful visits to every jeweller in the area and beyond. In two shops we were met with embarrassment, in other shops there was a total lack of interest. We wanted something special which unfortunately was not readily available. When we walked into Vicky’s we were greeted with warmth and a total interest in what we wanted. We chatted about same sex weddings and civil partnerships in a very friendly atmosphere. She was right on our wavelength. We only had three days to purchase our rings and wanted good quality rose gold wedding bands to compliment our platinum and rose gold commitment bands.
Vicky was amazing! She was extremely helpful, with advice about what would compliment our existing rings. After making a choice, Vicky sourced the best quality rose gold and had it delivered the following day. Vicky had the rings ready for a fitting later on in the afternoon and we collected them the following day.
The rings are stunning and we can’t thank Vicky enough for our beautiful rings made with such care and attention to detail. we have recommended Vicky to lots of friends and will continue to do so. Anna and Elaine
A few weeks ago I took in my Grandmothers engagement ring to see if it could be repaired. She had worn it until the gold wore through and it could no longer be worn. My mum had tried another jewellers in another town and been told ‘it wasn’t worth repairing’ luckily I knew that if I took it to VJG I would not get the same response and today I collected the repaired ring.
It has been so beautifully restored plus the stones re-secured and a very sharp edge smoothed off. It is now proudly being worn for the first time in at least 55 years.
This is a great jewellers not just for fixing your favourite pieces but for buying new as well, both of which I have done in the past. You are always warmly welcomed and today I was moved to tears by the work done so that this lovely ring could be worn again. Thank you so much.Heather Flin
Thank you so much for making the beautiful ‘Cariad’ ring for my wife for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. To interpret our thoughts and ideas into a beautiful piece of jewellery in time for our special day was very impressive. Your service was amazing, and we would happily recommend you to anyone. Thanks againAlan Hardwick
Thanks Vicki for a fabulous job on an old treasured possession. Excellent workmanship on the ring as always. Always recommend you!Karyn Hinks
This is just to say thank you so much for designing my silver bangle which I commissioned to match a ring I had been given as a birthday present. The service and advice I received was excellent from start to finish and I am really delighted with the finished piece of jewellery – in fact it has surpassed my expectations! Thank you once again and I am sure I will be back.Nicola Barnett
VJG Jewellery is the best shop that I have ever stumbled upon. It started with my first visit when I saw a lovely collection in their window and the welcome I got when I entered the shop was wonderful and always has been since. VJG is now a firm favourite with my other half for Birthdays, Christmas and Mother’s Day presents. I recently commissioned for a ring to be made and Vicky’s enthusiasm from the outset was inspiring. The service I received was faultless and the outcome is a beautiful and unique piece of jewellery that I will treasure forever. Thank you VJG.Sally Beamish
Many thanks for your excellent advice and wonderful workmanship, repairing and creating new pieces of jewellery & rings from an inheritance. The ring you designed and made from 2 generations of wedding rings with rubies from an old fashioned ring is stunning & admired by everyone who sees it. Your idea to make a ‘blob’ from a rose gold family wedding ring which is over a hundred years old, can now be worn as a necklace or on a bracelet and this has created a lovely reminder that is seen, rather than put away in a drawer and forgotten. Your changing a single earring into a pendant has made a special present, given in the past, into a lovely visible & usable reminder. I look forward to continuing to use your expertise.Sue Kift
“I approached VJG with regards making an engagement ring and right from the start I was most impressed with level of customer focus I received. I had a diamond from an older ring that I wanted to use, as well as a very specific design in mind for the ring it self. Despite the awkward nature of my request, it was absolutely no trouble for the VJG staff. They took me through a superb range of ring mount designs to find the best one for me and discussed in detail the best metals and claw settings to promote the rings look. What really impressed me, was that no pressure was put on me to start the ring right away. I was able to go away think and feel 100% confident with my decision before I started. During the rings build, the really nice part was VJG regularly gave me the opportunities to see and discuss the rings creation at regular intervals in its build. It meant I could really feel like I was part of the rings construction process, which you don’t get with so many other jewellers. This meant the ring was far more personal when I did ask my girlfriend to marry me! Throughout the process, the customer support, relaxed friendly attitude and personal approach has been outstanding and I would highly recommend anyone to use VJG jewellers for any of the jewellery needs”Adam Newton.
“We purchased our wedding ring from Vicki at VJG in 2005 and when I lost my treasured wedding ring last year Vicki put herself out to get the original ring replaced. The replacement is as good, if not better than the original ring. I have had lots of comments about my ring and am proud to wear it. We also like VJG for special gifts for special occasions as we know we will get something that is good quality and different from other high street jewellers. So many thanks to Vicki and the team.” Theresa and Oliver Swann.

“My Wife and I got married in June 2012. VJG Jewelry made both our wedding rings and also my wife’s engagement ring. I didn’t want to decide on an engagement ring without input from my Wife to be so with Vicki and Trevor’s advice, I proposed with a Marquise diamond and then together we designed the engagement ring.I have always visited VJG Jewelry for special gifts as they have such a unique and individual collection of jewelry. The staff are very helpful and informative, especially Vicki and Trevor who spent so much time with us when deciding upon the design of our rings.Vicki and Trevor’s advice was invaluable and they helped us design beautiful rings – they are completely bespoke and we love wearing them.” Kerry & Nick
