Rick & team did a great job resetting my sapphire engagement ring after the stone fell out. He went to great lengths to fix another jewelers shoddy work to make sure the ring was perfect. Thanks again for being so easy to work with and having my ring done so quickly!

I was visiting Knoxville from Denmark when my baby daughter ripped my gold necklace off my neck. I stopped by on my way home and walked in to see if maybe they could help me. They weren't even open yet (whoops!), but happily took my necklace and fixed it for no charge. It took about 3 minutes total. They were so friendly and helpful and made my necklace whole again. I would come here for all my jewelry after that experience. So wonderful, and a good welcome back to the friendly south from our home in Europe.

14 years later my ring is still beautiful and the service is always wonderful. Thanks so much for the many years of great service!

We both want to thank you SO much for the stunning ring you created for our wedding. It's not traditional, but it is totally Brooke. You were patient and kind and made this sentimental ring something that I never expected and can't take my eyes off of. You worked with our requirements and while giving sound advice never once made us feel like it was not reasonable or could not be done. You did it better than I could have ever imagined. You worked with stones that are not ideal, timing that could have been better and with two people new at this marriage thing, you made us both comfortable. THANK YOU!

Did a fabulous job on a reset. Blown away by the outcome. Just stunning.

I can't say enough great things about everyone at Rick Terry Jewelry Designs! My fiancé and I got engaged last weekend and everything from the help he got picking out the ring to the sizing (not an easy job!) was outstanding! Rick, Patty, Blake, Matthew and the Boxer babies really make you feel like family.
