I inherited a turquoise ring from my grandfather when he passed away. It was a ring he wore for over 50 years while I wore it for 10. By now, the silver band that held it together was about to break. I contacted Maria after favoriting her shop a while ago to see if she's able to set the stone into the Lumiere ring. She was a dream to work with. She responds to messages within a day if not within minutes. She took great care with handling the stone as it's very delicate and explained and messaged and sent me pictures of every step of the process and offered suggestions. My grandmother passed away a few weeks ago and though the ring wasn't finished, Maria sent me images that I could show her to make her final days happy. I cried seeing my finished ring and so did my mom. Maria's work is magic and she's a sweetheart. Thank you!!
I cannot say enough kind words about working with Maria! She is quick to respond, professional, and very understanding! The shipment arrived incredibly quickly and was beautifully packaged as well. The gorgeous details of her work showcase her passion for the craft and lead to incredible designs. I could not be happier with my custom designed wedding band!! From now on I know where to go for my jewelry needs. Thank you, Maria!
This text box is limiting my enthusiasm for Maria. I've had to retype this a few times as it will only allow me to use so many characters, and I could probably write a multiple page essay on my experience with Maria. Simply put, she is the absolute best and will help you dream up and create something so unique and stunning, you won't believe your eyes. My fiancé can't stop looking at her engagement ring. She is obsessed. Maria spent countless hours communicating with me, working on every detail, and listening to my every request. She is a master of her trade and a delight to work with. I simply can't imagine a better experience or a more beautiful ring. Thank you for everything Maria. We can't wait to make our wedding bands with you. Etsy owes you an award of excellence. Thank you.
I absolutely love it! Couldn't be happier! Price was right and when I asked for other pictures of the pendant she responded right away. Maria was super sweet and understanding when I wasn't sure if I wanted this necklace or another one. But I couldn't be happier with my decision! Maria, I hope you are still receiving all the birdy cuddles 😋. I'll definitely be buying more of her jewelry she's a fantastic artist and a true jeweler that will work with you to make you happy! Highly recommended Maria!
Maria is an awesome artisan! I was at first reluctant to purchase something as expensive and delicate as an engagement ring on Etsy, but this experience quelled my fears. Maria was nothing but communicative with me from start to finish and was patient with me during the ring design process. She allowed me to split payments over time, and was steadfast in her 7-10 weeks from last payment received deadline. She takes such pride in her work and is very professional! This ring is truly unique and an heirloom piece for sure! I would highly recommend The North Way Studio for all future bespoke jewelry purchases.
I absolutely would recommend this store. The owner is an amazing artist which manages to bring my vision to fruition. She made a custom ring to for with my ruby ring. She is patient and kind and quick to ship once the custom piece is ready.
I could not be more blown away by the craftsmanship and beauty of my wedding band! It perfectly matches my engagement ring and far exceeds any vision I could have dreamt of. I cannot wait to collect more of Maria’s jewelry over time!
The 840 character limit is too little for the words of gratitude for Maria. I'm just going to keep it short here. (I've just posted another full review before this)
Maria, you've made us the happiest couple yet; you've made the entire process and the rings, so perfect. Keep spreading your magic.
And the to-be Groom/Bride, if you're reading this, and you're looking for a little magic - pick Maria, you won't regret it.
Maria is just amazing!! She kindly answered all my questions and created a beautiful ring. I really appreciate the care that went into it. I can’t thank her enough!
I messaged Maria of The North Way Studio after my engagement earlier this year in hopes of purchasing one of her rings with 'a little twist'. Little did I know that I had just met one of the loveliest sellers on Etsy AND one of the most talented jewellers I've ever seen. I came to her thinking I would get one of her listed rings and walked away with an entirely one of a kind dragon magnet. Maria made my ring dreams come true. She also was incredibly patient and listened to my various ideas, no matter how many times I couldn't make up my mind <3. Her work is incredible and it feels so special to wear these rings (It also feels like I should hire a few knights to ward off dragons because man is this thing just asking to be part of a treasure hoard). I urge you to take the plunge and get your engagement rings from Maria, people <3
Maria is an absolute rock star. We spent a couple weeks going back and forth about the design of the ring to make sure everything was perfect. Halfway through, I wanted to see if I could get the ring in time for a trip we we're planning and turn it into a proposal. Maria made sure to get it to me on time. She kept me posted on all key stages of the rings development. As dude trying to find the perfect ring, I always thought this process would be stressful and confusing. Maria made it a super memorable experience.
I was initially drawn to The North Way Studio by Maria's intricate, ethereal designs and was convinced to message her by the rave reviews by past customers. I knew I wanted a custom engagement ring that reflected my partner's individuality, but was completely intimidated by the process as I knew very little about designing jewelry. Maria patiently walked me through the entire process and was willing to work with me for as long as it took to create the ring I wanted. By the end, not only had I had more fun than I anticipated, but we had created a gorgeous design that I felt proud to have had a small part in. One of my fears was that a custom designed engagement ring would be cost-prohibitive, but Maria helped me understand what my options were within my budget. The pricing was incredibly reasonable for what I got, which was the perfectly unique ring that I had envisioned for my now-fiance. The ring itself is even more beautiful in person than the pictures could convey, and neither my fiance nor I can stop staring at it! My vision truly came to life in Maria's expert hands.
The ring arrived and was even more beautiful than the photo. Quality is unparalelled. Amazing jeweler loved every part of the transaction.
I cannot even begin to describe how gorgeous the ring Maria created for me is. Not only is the craftsmanship extraordinary, Maria herself was the most patient and understanding person I've ever had the pleasure of working with. She put up with my indecision for weeks, and regardless of how back and forth I was, never wavered in helping to make sure I was completely happy with my ring. It brings butterfly's to my stomach every time I look at my hand now. Trust her with your piece and I know you will be supremely happy.
Now that ring has been given to my partner and she said yes I can safely leave a glowing review. The ring was beautiful. Exactly as I had envisioned. Maria was a delight to work with, understood the direction I was going, and her efforts are clearly translated through this beautiful piece. The ring arrived with more than enough time for me plan the proposal and I (we) couldn't be happier.
Thank you again, Maria!
Maria was a dream to work with from start to finish! She patiently answered all my endless questions in a timely manner, and was so understanding when I couldn't make up my mind which stone to pick. Not to mention, the craftsmanship of the ring is just stunning! My ring came out beautifully and I cannot be happier with the whole experience with Maria. Will probably go with her for wedding band too!
Thank you very much for my beautiful ring. She is absolutely lovely and I’m obsessed with the way the light catches and all the different colors and universes present therein. Your work is absolutely lovely and I’m a very lucky lady to have gotten to work with you!
