I’m so happy I went to Just Gems and met Helen, I own a ring made just for me, I know so much about it, where the stone came from where it was cut where it was hallmarked. The effort Helen went to to find me the right stone was impressive and never at any moment did I feel pressured to buy, I enjoyed the journey from start to finish, from meeting and talking to Helen who is so knowledgeable about Gems, to choosing the stone and then to the day I picked it up. And now everyday feels special when I wear it, and I am someone who never thought she would be owning a bespoke ring and thanks to Helen I am now a very proud owner of a stunning Aquamarine and diamond ring. I would definitely recommend vising Just Gems before buying a readymade ring.

“Just Gems” came recommended by a friend who knew the owner Helen Plum personally.
I have now visited the shop on four occasions and have been treated so nicely and helpfully on every occasion.
I don’t know much about jewellery, and I was advised and informed patiently, and without pressure.
I have now bought two items for my wife - an opal pendant and a pair of south sea pearl ear rings.
The quality of the stones is clear, and the workmanship is excellent, and my wife has been delighted (and wants more!!)
I shall look no further than “Just Gems” when buying my jewellery in the future - cannot recommend enough.

I sought a ruby pendant with which to give thanks for forty years of love. My mind’s eye knew exactly what it would look like: I guessed I would need to find the right stone, and then have it set. So I rang Helen and described my thoughts, which she understood precisely. She suggested including a diamond to add brilliance, showed me several of her cut and unmounted rubies, and offered as alternatives a number of ready-made pieces. One of these was exactly what my mind had in its eye - better, on account of the diamond that sat above the ruby. All this by phone and email (because Devon is miles from Winchcombe). Though she could easily have sent it to me I chose to go to Winchcombe to collect it - a happy trip which provided the extra delight of learning about the stone, and seeing so many others of Helen’s lovely gems.

Thank you so much for your patience and expertise in designing a ring for my Sapphire Anniversary.
My husband and I really appreciated the time you spent with us choosing the perfect combination of stones.
We are both delighted with the result.

My best friend recommended Just Gems to me as I was looking for a sapphire engagement ring and had seen how beautifully his order had turned out. Helen was a pleasure to work with throughout the process, taking on board every detail that I wanted in the ring (choosing the stones was great fun) and matching its design to a description of my partner to create a piece that was stunning but secure to match her active lifestyle. The experience was so straightforward, even mid-pandemic, and I would highly recommend Just Gems to anyone.
