“Stunning Engagement Ring!”

Written on: 15/03/2016 by 426Kerr (1 review written)

The service received at Ian King was fantastic. They were kind, friendly and listened intently to what I wanted. They made the exact engagement ring I described and it was ready to pick up within weeks. I can't wait to go back for the wedding rings. There's nowhere else I'd want to go! Thank you so much!… Read Full Review

“Simply stunning results”

Written on: 19/05/2015 by EmeraldCut (2 reviews written)

With my engagement ring no longer 'in service' I wanted to have its stunning centre stone reworked into a dress ring that I could wear every day rather than leaving it lying around in my jewellery box. I looked at various rings for inspiration and then attempted to draw up designs which I discussed with the ever patient Marilyn. Finally I found the design I wanted and showed it to Ian who agreed that he could create my dream ring. Despite his assurance I was still nervous about what the final… Read Full Review

“Links bracelet”

Written on: 13/09/2014 by 8Oaklands (1 review written)

I recently took my pearl and silver links bracelet to links of London as the pearls had badly tarnished and the silver mesh bracelet was black. They suggested I contact Ian king which I did. After receiving a photo of my bracelet they called me to confirm that they could replace the pearls, restring the bracelet and clean it. I sent it to them that afternoon, and received it back 6 days later. I now have a brand new bracelet… Read Full Review

“Wonderful experience, beautiful bespoke jewellery”

Written on: 02/09/2014 by Featherstone.ej (1 review written)

We went to Ian King to have our wedding bands made after I was not able to find anything "off the rack" in any jewellery store that I liked next to my engagement ring. We could not have been happier with the whole experience - they were so helpful, listened to our ideas, helped us design, and then expertly crafted our beautiful rings. They engaged us in the whole process, keeping us updated along the way. We love that we now have something that is unique and special to us and, being bespoke… Read Full Review

“A Superb Service”

Written on: 28/01/2014 by Diana_Bell (1 review written)

I was somewhat apprehensive handing over an incredibly sentimental piece of jewellery which I had never let anyone touch/alter previously, however, the result was beyond brilliant – I was overjoyed. I cannot recommend Ian more highly and guarantee that you will not leave disappointed. A million thank yous to both Ian and his wife! … Read Full Review

“Incredible Service”

Written on: 28/11/2013

After doing a lot of research on Jewellery shops looking to change a family engagement ring I chose Ian King and I couldn't be happier with their service. Both of them were incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the changes made, were faultless and completed ahead of schedule. Having used Ian King for my engagement ring after such a good service I went back and bought my wedding rings from them. Again the service was faultless and ahead of schedule. They will definitely be my… Read Full Review

“AMAZING”

Written on: 06/08/2013 by Lopez4 (1 review written)

I anxiously visited Ian King with my engagement ring to find out if there was any way possible that more diamonds could be added but still keeping my original ring. Both were so helpful and told me not to worry as they can add to the ring exactly what I wanted. The process was so quick and I picked up my ring exactly two weeks later and I absolutely love it! It is literally amazing what they can do and I highly recommend this fantastic jeweler’s to all. … Read Full Review

“Great Craftsmanship”

Written on: 02/11/2012 by KMcN (1 review written)

I fully endorse the other reviews on this page. Marilyn and Ian are both extremely friendly and knowledgable. I recently had my diamond engagement ring modified to incorporate two other stones. Although I was keen to get it done, I was also a little nervous as the original solitaire diamond was already lovely. I left it in Ian's very capable hands and the results were fantastic! He turned what was already a pretty nice ring into a really stunning piece. I have purchased a few pieces from their… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/05/2012 by JohnPenn (1 review written)

My wife and I have used Ian King several times to melt old chains and rings (which we weren't wearing because they were old fashioned) and redesign them into rings and cuff links that we would wear. Every time the end result has been great. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2012 by CP2012 (1 review written)

My fiance had the daunting task of finding an engagement ring that would be my dream ring without me ever telling him what that was!! He stumbled upon Ian King in Bow Lane and told me it was the first place he went into that really seemed to want to help and spend as much time as needed getting the right ring. When he didnt find anything he wanted aready made they helped him design and create the ring he had in mind. I am over the moon with my unique ring. I needed to have the ring re-sized… Read Full Review

“Exquisite Jewellery, service second to none,look no...”

Written on: 08/11/2011 by HRH77 (1 review written)

Me and my soon to be wife were introduced to IAN KING Jewellers through a friend, I only wish the introduction had been sooner! From their little shop in Bow Lane near St Pauls, the husband and wife team have created some of the best Jewellery I have seen...EVER. For my wedding ring I wanted to create something bespoke out of old sentimental Jewellery and diamonds I already possessed. Ian took on the challenge, creating a 20+gram 1 carat diamond ring for a price which made me feel as though I… Read Full Review

“Superb bespoke craftsmanship”

Written on: 24/08/2011

I designed a pendant and needed it made. I tried many jewellers, most quoting crazy prices, until I popped into Ian King's shop, which was handily close to one of my clients' head offices. Both Ian and Marilyn were extremely helpful and happy to make the pendant to my design specifications. Not only that, but Ian quoted a satisfyingly reasonable price (another local jeweller, also claiming to specialise in bespoke pieces, was twice as expensive). I was kept updated throughout the process, and… Read Full Review

Searching for an engagement ring is pretty daunting but from the moment I walked in the shop I was at total ease. Great service and great to be served by people who are as excited about your engagement as you are, and really eager to give you the perfect ring for your budget. Can't recommend them highly enough… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/12/2010

The reviews here speak for themselves. This tiny shop is staffed by a wonderful husband and wife team with Ian usually tinkering away downstairs whilst his partner handles sales. They are friendly, eager to please but not remotely pushy. I purchased a necklace from their over 2 years ago and my girlfriend was so pleased with it that I have gone on to get her the matching earrings and to take her to meet Ian when we recently needed an engagement ring.

He made a ring for us based entirely on her… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/12/2010

I was looking for a wedding ring to match my engagement ring. I wanted something different and most other jewelers could not provide a ring in my price range and style. We walked into Ian King and asked the same question we had asked many others and he said he could do it. The warm and friendly staff and attention to detail was excellent. I am so happy with the ring and am very grateful for their wonderful personal service. I would not hesitate in recommending them to friends… Read Full Review

Extremely helpful and friendly husband and wife team- so much better than going to a high street chain.
I had my Victorian engagement ring valued and adjusted so I could wear a wedding band next to it, and they couldn't have been more helpful and knowledgeable. Will definitely be going back for any jewellery requirements in the future… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2009

they provide fantastic service at very reasonable prices. they have both restored or amended old pieces for me as well as creating new ones. they are some of the highest quality of work and best service that I have found in the market.

I would recommend them to anyone and they are certainly 1000 times better than any of the High Street chains and much cheaper (and same quality) as the high end stores (Tiffany, Boodles)… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/07/2009 by Mrssanchez (1 review written)


After sourcing our own stone for my engagement ring, I trawled Hatton Garden and many other shops for the perfect setting, I passed Ian's shop on the way to work one morning, and all I can say is am so glad I did.

Some may say I am a very indecisive person, but Ian had such patience and flexibility.

I spotted the perfect setting, although it was outside my price range. Ian was able to tailor make the setting I wanted to suit my price range and mount the stone for me.

I have to say that I… Read Full Review
