Dana redesigned my great grandmothers ring into my now fiances engagement ring. It is a masterpiece to say the least! I couldn't have been happier with the process, customer service and attention to detail that Dana and her team provided. My Fiance Cassie and I Ben are forever grateful and highly recommend Dana's Goldsmithing.

After a very long personal struggle I decided to have my mothers wedding ring redesigned.  I took it into Dana’s and spoke with Sharon who was extremely helpful with ideas and walked me through the procedure of redesigning a ring.

I made a decision on the design and Dana made it happen!, I’m so thrilled I did this, thank you to Dana and her wonderful staff!!!!

"Whether you go in to Dana's to get a battery changed in your watch, are dropping off something to be repaired or having something spectacular custom designed ..you are always treated in a special way!!!  Not only have we done all of the above at Dana's but our children have bought and received their wedding sets from them! They took Dana a picture of what they wanted and "Voila"...it was created and more exquisite than they ever imagined!  Our parents also purchased a number of beautiful pieces from Dana's which have since been passed on including a gorgeous set of pearls worn and cherished by our daughter at her wedding. From one generation to the next, in our family, there is only one jewellery store and it is a very special one...Dana's! “Congratulations on your 25th Anniversary

You’re incredible”

Since we got engaged, you have all gone above and beyond.  You completed my engagement ring in time for Austin to give it to me before his vacation ended.  You made the most beautiful matching wedding band that looks amazing by itself and prefect as part of a set.  Austin’s ring suits him to a “tee” and the engraving on our bands makes them extra special.  The bracelet that Kerry introduced us to was the perfect complement to the pearl necklace of my Nana’s that I wore (my Grandpa gave it to her (also from Dana’s) for their 60th).  Thank you for adding that “extra sparkle” to our big day.”

"I have been going to Dana's Goldsmithing with my mother since I was a teenager. Dana and her colleagues are a group of very friendly, professional, and highly skilled individuals. Knowing that your jeweller stands by their craftsmanship, the quality of their product, and their standard of service builds a level of trust that cannot be matched by other jewellers. Thank you Dana's Goldsmithing for your stellar service to our community."

I guess I have known Dana for 25 years & was probably one of her first customers.  That was in the spring of 1992, when her storefront was the tiny window on Queen Street.  The space was formerly “Mondo” or “Modi”, a very stylish ladies designer clothing store.  Dana designed wedding bands for my husband & me, plus pinky rings for my 13 year old twin sons, who were part of our wedding ceremony.

Over the years, I always enjoyed shopping at Dana’s during “Midnight Madness”, ”Western Weekend” and “Diva Night”.  Those sparkling cases always caught my eye!

Last June I was in the store, looking for something unusual & unique, when I saw a magnificent orange ladies ring.  Wow…..did it sparkle!  Dana had designed the ring for a Rotary event.  The ring had made it into the display case & it was destined to be mine.

The ring is the size of my first knuckle & very different from my normal pick of rings.  The center stone is a fire opal, surrounded by 10 fancy orange sapphires & 8 good diamonds.  And, boy, does it sparkle!

After many visits to the store & lots of trying on, I purchased this one-of-a kind beauty.  Dana, Kerry & I have chatted several times about this lovely story, because every piece of jewelry has its own tale to tell.

Thank you, Dana, and Congratulations on Twenty-Five years serving the jewelry needs of Port Perry!

When I had finally decided to propose to my then-girlfriend Michelle, it was a big, exciting decision that was a little terrifying at the same time. I was worried that finding a ring would be just as big and terrifying however the staff at Dana’s gave me the information about diamonds and rings that made me confident in my decision. They worked with my budget and the timelines were perfect. I got the ring just in time for our Caribbean then when we were getting ready for a special dinner, when she asked “am I missing anything?” I said “just this!” She saw me down on one knee and the rest is history. Thanks for helping make a scary decision less so, Dana’s Goldsmithing! We’ll definitely be back for matching bands.

My fiancé and I came into Dana's on a whim (we are not from the area) and were blown away by the service we had received. The sales person we dealt with was amazing and incredibly helpful in assisting us in making our decision (and not pushy). We are now ordering a custom wedding band and after seeing the mould for it incredibly excited about ordering future pieces. Glad we drove through Port Perry that day :)

Dani Campbell

The staff at Dana’s are ALWAYS so pleasant to deal with, and I’m so appreciative that they always fit me in for a ring cleaning when I’m passing through town   Not to mention, my custom wedding rings from Dana’s constantly garner attention and compliments.

Dana's Goldsmithing is a perfect example of excellent service, workmanship and for the past 8 years we've been making the hour long drive to Port Perry, because they're the best. Fraser designed my engagement ring based on my husband's design and it's gorgeous! He then designed our wedding bands, ALSO gorgeous! We get compliments on them all the time, and love referring people back to Dana's. Dana herself is a dream to work with, and her team is always accommodating and very genuine. Small touches like always remembering our names and the charm of shopping at a boutique jeweler - makes your purchase that much better!

We bought our wedding bands at Dana's Goldsmithing Port Perry and couldn't be happier with the service they have provided. Living in town, we wanted to support the local businesses and had heard great things about Dana's, and we were not disappointed!!

Dana is a genius and so wonderful to work with. Her staff are pleasant and fun to be around. She and I designed this beautiful ring together and I could not be more thrilled with how it turned out!

We went to Dana's to create an engagement ring using parts of my grandmother's ring. Dana worked closely with us to design something unique. She made sure I was confident and happy with the ring each step of the way and I was overjoyed with the final result. We will definitely be returning for our wedding bands (and any other jewelry needs). I'd highly recommend Dana's.

We had a custom engagement ring designed by Dana. We brought our ideas to her and she mastered it above and beyond what I ever could have imagined. She sent me her computer image designs and I loved it, but when I saw the ring I was in shock it was amazingly stunning I couldn't be happier with her work. Not only did she perfect the ring she answered all my questions (and I had a few) I recommend Dana and her staff for all your jewelry needs, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you Dana

I went to Dana's because I wanted to have a custom family ring made. I also wanted to purchase from an independent and fairly local store. I had a general idea as to what I wanted, but not specifically. With the help of Dana and her staff, within minutes they "got" what I was talking about. In a few days Dana sent me computer renderings of her ideas based on our talk. With some very minor tweaks, Dana sent back the perfect ring for me- exactly what I wanted, without knowing what I wanted in the first place. In addition to my own ring, I wanted similar rings for my daughters. Dana made exact replicas of my ring, but smaller. I am thrilled with both my experience with Dana and her staff and my custom rings. Additionally, the price was very fair... I feel that I received excellent value for my money. I would highly recommend Dana's Goldsmithing to anyone looking for custom jewellery.

After several recommendations from people who have gone to your store, I decided to bring my old ring to you for it to be redesigned.  Fraser understood exactly what I wanted and provided me with some good suggestions. When I picked up the new ring, it was truly beyond my expectations. Your store did a beautiful job. Thank you so much.

 Dana & Team, 

I wanted to send you a message to let you know how much I am enjoying my custom designed ring which combined my wedding rings and my mother's wedding rings. It really added such a special touch to our 35th wedding anniversary. I wore it proudly on our trip to Europe and flashed it at every opportunity! It now holds such extra sentimental value of my husband's love & my mother's love for both of us. Thank you for your wonderful professional customer service from the beautiful design to the excellent staff who served us. It was greatly appreciated & you can count on us to spread the word about your exemplary store at every opportunity.

Kindest Regards Jane & Jim Ling

"I brought all my old gold and my random old diamond rings and an earring to Dana's Goldsmithing to see if they could create a new wedding ring for me. I didn't want anything traditional and Fraser suggested the perfect design that beautifully incorporated the various sized stones. Being able to see a computer rendering of the ring before making my final decision was extremely helpful. The workmanship of the ring is simply beautiful and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

 Thanks again,

Esther 

Hi Dana,

I received my ring last night from Scott. 

It is SO. Beautiful. !! I really just am in love with it. I can't say I have ever seen a more beautiful ring. 

I am so very pleased; you were expertly able to capture what I was imagining and surpass my expectations (and I am a perfectionist!).

Anyway, thank you so much for such a STUNNING ring. I really am blown away by it!

It was great working with you! People are already commenting on how gorgeous it is from the pictures we have of it, and I am sure we will have lots of people asking where I got it.

Thank you for making me the perfect ring. I can't wait to get married and wear it!

Sincerely, Meghan Merkley

Hello again Dana,

I just want to express my appreciation for the attention to detail, the assistance given by Sharon helping me to find a comfortable ring and general experience at your shop. The final product was exactly as I had hoped for.  And beyond that, you even polished my husband's wedding band.
 My experience with your business has been wonderful!  Thank you!
 
Best Regards, Brenda Bailey

Hi Dana: We picked up the ring yesterday. We are both extremely pleased with your design and craftsmanship of this ring. It turned out far better than I had imagined, and it is in my opinion the nicest gold ring I've seen. Annette has a special birthday this year, and this was for that occasion. Thank-you for everything. I know Annette thanks you as well.

Sincerely, Steve & Annette Thomson

 Please accept this email in recognition of the outstanding work recently completed for me by Dana. In addition to resetting and resizing two rings just prior to Christmas, Dana recently designed and created a beautiful drop pendant using my late mother’s diamonds. I have so appreciated her expertise in understanding how best to rework existing pieces.

I have been particularly impressed with the sincerity, understanding and respect both Dana and sales associate Amanda have shown me in our discussions sorting through my late mother’s jewellery.
They have allowed me the time to work through this process and I have certainly enjoyed the creative journey thus far. 
Currently Dana is working on a replication of an old family engagement ring. I’m very much looking forward to the end product.
 It has been a pleasure to be able to recommend Dana to friends and family.
Your motto ‘ we make it personal’ has certainly been upheld.
Sincerely,

Lois Jackson

 Fantastic customer service! My husband surprised me with an upgrade to my ring and could not say enough about the wonderful attention he got from all the staff. The process was made easy for him because of the extensive knowledge and help that he received and in the end, I got a wonderful surprise. Who doesn’t like diamonds? Thank you to everyone at Dana’s for making this happen!

 Hi Dana,

Chris and I just wanted to share our good news with you since you played such an important part in our special day.  Chris proposed to me on July 27th, 2014 and I of course said, “YES!” (can you believe he was able to keep the ring from me for that long).  The ring that you designed and made for me is absolutely stunning and fits perfectly.  I could not have asked for a more beautiful ring.  You truly captured everything I EVER hoped and dreamed of for my engagement ring.  Thank you so much for everything you did for both Chris and I, and we look forward to booking our appointment with you in the Fall to design both of our wedding bands.

 “I recently picked up my diamond ring from Dana’s and my custom piece is stunning. I had lost all hope before I walked into Dana’s as I had a disappointing experience with another jeweler, but that all changed when I met Fraser. I brought in some old rings to create a new design for a special anniversary. Fraser was wonderful. His knowledge of design was great as he helped me to see a different perspective to some of the design work that I wanted. When it came down to the center diamond for my ring he knew exactly what would would work. To his word, within a week Fraser had the wax design ready including 2 diamonds to choose from. Now this is customer service at its highest. When my husband and I saw the finished product, it brought tears to my eyes. I was speechless. There’s no denying, this ring does sparkle!! I can’t stop looking at it. Thank you Fraser for making me feel at ease and to Dana for bringing my ring to life. I will treasure it always!

 “I just wanted to take a moment to write to you and thank you for the beautiful work you did with my ring.  When I emailed you about redesigning my grandmother’s ring I was excited to work with you, I always admire your stunning work you truly do have a special touch.  When I picked up my ring from the store it was more beautiful and perfect then I could have imagined.  Thank you so much for making this beautiful piece of myself and my grandmother.  It is absolutely perfect and I cannot wait to pass it along to my daughter one day too (who is named after my grandmother).  Thank you so much for your personal touch, you always make the customer feel welcome like family.  Thank you to you and your wonderful team, you simply are the best!”

“I wanted to send a quick thank you for the work you did on my rings this week.  I got them from my mother and while I liked them they were a bit dated.  You soldered the bands together, sized it and redesigned the whole look.  It was more than I expected, and I am very pleased.  Now it seems like my rings instead of one she didn’t want anymore.  My old rings look new.  It’s beautiful.  Thank you for your efforts and creativity.  I will definitely spread the word.”

“I was in your store yesterday and purchased the 18kt. gold diamond pave earrings.  I just wanted to say I had a wonderful experience with you and your staff.  Of all the jewellery I have collected since I was 16 years old, these diamond huggies are now my favorite.  I don’t even feel them on my ears.  I’m looking forward to my new Victor Diamond pendant you are making for me.  I will be telling every one of my friends to purchase from you.”

“I recently picked up my custom white gold diamond ring from Dana’s Goldsmithing in Port Perry and I could not be more thrilled.  My beautiful custom piece is a stunner!  Let me start at the beginning and tell you how this all came about.  I brought in my bridal rings that turned 30 years old in June to Dana’s.  I met Kerry the store manager and explained how my 30 year old rings needed updating.  Kerry helped me achieve my final custom masterpiece.  It is exquisite, with a thick white gold band and the top of the ring is covered in diamonds.  Kerry was beyond wonderful helping me design my custom ring.  I appreciated her knowledgeable advice when we created my original piece.  If you have ever thought your rings could use a make over, I strongly suggest that you go to Dana’s.  Dana is the goldsmith on site whom makes these one of a kind creations.  Thanks again Kerry for everything.  I Love my ring!”

 "My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, we decided to take my old jewellery in to Dana’s Goldsmithing in our hometown of Port Perry. We have known Dana personally for many years and have purchased many pieces of jewellery from her.  I asked her to design a new ring from the old pieces and what she created is absolutely beautiful.  When we saw the finished product, it brought me to tears.  I was speechless.  Hats off to the wonderful and caring staff at Dana’s Goldsmithing.  You helped make our anniversary a very special time.

P.S.  Our children also succeeded in an amazing surprise anniversary party with many family and friends attending.”
