From the second I met Gary I felt like I was in very good hands. Being totally blind meant I knew what felt good but I needed to be confident the ring I was to wear for the rest of my life looked equally good and reflected who I was as a person. I was overwhelmed at the huge amount of time and care he spent getting to know me and what I wanted in an engagement ring. From colour to clarity he explained every little detail to consider when choosing a diamond. He gave advice without being controlling. No question was ever too silly for him to answer and he was all too happy to think outside the box.
Gary’s down to earth and creative yet practical approach is what you need when you’re making such a huge investment. His passion for beautifully cut stones is infectious and I couldn’t be happier with my rings."
I have arranged for the manufacture of quality custom made jewellery for the last 16 years. When my previous jeweller retired some years ago he recommended Gary Thyregod as his replacement. An excellent recommendation. My wife has been able to describe to Gary her requirements and we have watched him sketch ideas and develop these until he had achieved a piece of jewellery which was exactly what she wanted.
I have found that the prices charged are fair for the materials supplied and work undertaken. Independent assessments for insurance purposes have confirmed that the prices charged are fair wholesale prices. I would recommend Gary to any prospective purchaser."
I first met Gary in 2000 when I was searching for a very special engagement ring for my wife Julie. Since then each time we want to celebrate a special occasion, we only visit Gary for our next unique piece of Gary Thyregod jewellery. Over the last 18 years, Gary has helped design and make over 10 amazing jewellery items for both Julie and myself. It is probably best said that Gary possesses an amazing ability to translate our ideas into stunning pieces of jewellery that are nothing short of breath taking.
Oscar Wilde said “I have simple tastes, only the best will do.” So whenever Julie wears any of her jewellery, it is not surprising she always receives wow-style comments. Many families have an family accountant or a lawyer, I am however incredibly proud to boast having a family jeweller. It goes without saying that if you need something special for your special someone, then you simply must talk to Gary."
Asa and Dan,
"We couldn’t be more happy with the engagement ring Gary made for us. We had never had any jewellery custom made before but he made us comfortable and guided us through the creative process and helped us with selecting the perfect stones for the ring. We had quite a specific idea of the type of ring we wanted but Gary took the design to the next level and the finished result is amazing. We would highly recommend Gary to anyone looking for a jewellery designer as he is a true craftsman and a really great guy!"

Amazing service! I recently purchased an engagement ring from Gary. He was very accommodating, allowing me to choose my own design and change things without hassle. He was very patient, helpful and informative when it came to picking the diamond for the ring. But most importantly my (now) fiance loves it!"
"I have known Gary for twenty years and he has designed and made many beautiful pieces for me and also for friends I have introduced. He is very caring and he takes a lot of time to make sure that the jewellery he is creating will be just way you want it to be. In particular he made the most beautiful engagement and wedding ring for me. I feel very lucky to have met Gary and would highly recommend him to anyone who requires a special creation."

My husband and I first met Gary when we were looking for pink diamonds for an engagement ring. Gary's expertise in pink diamonds, exquisite jewellery design and friendly, trustworthy personality made the experience stress free, and the end result was beautiful.
Gary has made several other pieces of jewellery for us since including gorgeous bracelets for our baby girls that will last a lifetime. Gary's work is exceptional and he has an eye for beautiful and unique jewellery."

I am the proud and happy owner of some really beautiful jewellery, designed and crafted by Gary. Over quite a few years Gary has made special pieces for me including a very beautiful ruby and diamond wedding/engagement ring. My current special favourites are a pair of 18ct gold and diamond hoop earrings.. and as always with pieces designed and crafted by Gary, beautifully styled with superb diamonds, colour F clarity Si. They were on display in Gary’s showcase, I could not resist them.
(And as always with Gary’s pieces, although quite heavy earrings, they are wonderfully comfortable to wear.) Gary has won many top awards for design, deservedly so."
"Gary helped me navigate the wholesale diamond market to find an incredible stone for an engagement ring, he then hand-crafted an amazing piece of jewellery around the stone which will be in my family for generations."
I was fortunate enough to have a friend recommend Gary Thyregod when I decided to get a new diamond ring. Gary has a lovely quiet studio in Sydney (with no distractions) and along with his artistic talent and years of knowledge he patiently guided me through the whole process. The end result is a beautiful ring I love.
He also designed and made an exquisite necklace with my existing diamond. Gary is trustful and communication is always clear. I would highly recommend him."
"Gary Thyregod has been designing jewellery for me since 2001. He is very flexible in his designs and was always willing to listen to my ideas and then build on them to create a unique piece of jewellery. It often took me time before I committed to a piece of jewellery. Gary never rushed me and I always felt he was willing to rework an idea until I was completely happy with it. I can highly recommend Gary if you are looking for a person who cares about his client, is patient through the design process and is able to produce a unique and beautiful piece of jewellery."
