LAURA & ANDREW
'Working with Clarice was one of the most exciting and enjoyable elements of our wedding prep. My fiancé Andrew and I first spotted her designs at The Basics Store pop-up on Redchurch Street a few years ago. We fell in love with her Metropolis collection, inspired by the New York cityscape, with a nod to Art Deco. We snapped up her Umbra ring, and haven't taken it off since! When we found out her studio was just down the road from us in Hackney Wick, and as we clearly had a shared love of streamlined and architectural styles, we knew we had to have her design my engagement ring and our wedding bands.
Clarice really took the time to understand us as a couple and by the end of the very first meeting had a real sense of what we were looking for. Her energy and excitement made our visits to her studio such fun and we loved spending time with her as the designs developed over cups of tea and catch-ups. The finished results are beyond spectacular. I treasure my platinum engagement ring, set with a beautiful dark green central emerald and stepped pave diamonds. And our wedding bands fit perfectly. She absolutely went the extra mile to create these bespoke pieces for us, and we can't thank her enough. Not only have we found a wonderful creative collaborator, but a true friend. We look forward to commissioning Clarice to create many more spectacular pieces for us in the future, as well as sharing the dance-floor with her at our wedding soon!'
ZOE & MATT
'We both followed Clarice on Instagram & had noticed how varied her bespoke work is. It gave us the sense that she really payed attention to her clients & worked with them to achieve their dream jewellery.
Having a very specific idea in mind for an engagement ring, we felt this was exactly what we needed & that Clarice would be the right jeweller for us. We weren't mistaken.
From the initial meeting through to the finishing details of the ring the process was 100% collaborative. Clarice sent regular updates whilst the ring was being made & seemed as genuinely excited about the whole process as we were.
We were thrilled with the end result & asked Clarice to also make our wedding bands (which were of equally high quality).
We could not recommend Clarice highly enough, she made the whole experience one which we both enjoyed from start to finish & hints have been dropped about asking her to make bespoke jewellery for future celebrations...'
JACK & SOPH
'Clarice was an absolute joy to work with, catering to all our needs in a nice, cosy environment. It was important for us to find a smaller local business, where we felt connected to the maker and our experience with Clarice was exactly that; On various occasions we met and chatted not only about our beautiful wedding rings but also about the entire wedding plan on the lead up to the big day!'
STEVE & DEB
'I approached Clarice because I wanted to create a ring that was both unique and special to propose to my girlfriend. Clarice had been recommended to me by a friend who had previously been through the process of working on his own design with her. Clarice took the time to understand what I wanted to create and suggested ways of making the design more personal, resulting in a ring that was more than I could of imagined at the start. One thing I liked was that she took the time to make sure I understood the technical details of creating a ring and advised me in both pros and cons of subtle design choices. I was nervous about starting the process at first however I ended up feeling excited during the entire experience. Clarice was a joy to work with and I really trusted her advise and skill in creating the most important piece of jewellery I would buy. I would absolutely recommend Clarice to others looking to create something special and anyone that feels nervous or apprehensive about starting the process does not have to worry at all.'
ROZ & ADAM
'After searching for weeks without finding any wedding bands we liked, we were recommended Clarice by Erin, who runs Parla. We couldn’t be happier with how it all went - Clarice went above and beyond the call of duty, allowing us to visit her studio on a Sunday (as it was the only time we could both do). The consultation was thorough and she seemed to get exactly what we wanted, even though we couldn’t articulate it very well at the time! Our rings were made quickly and we love them. Am already planning to visit her again to get another custom piece made.'
DALE & LEILA
'I really enjoyed collaborating with Clarice on designing leila's engagement ring. She created the design which was in my head but couldn't visualise. She brought a kernel of an idea to life in a beautifully elegant and simple way. I felt like Clarice was also invested in the project, it wasn't just ''another job'' and she seemed to be as thrilled with the design as I was. I could feel her passion for her craft when we spoke and I had the utmost confidence in her ability to create something truly unique.'
SARAH & CHRIS
'It was such a pleasure to work with Clarice on designing our wedding rings. She immediately grasped what we were looking for having took the time to get to know us and our style. The rings were everything we had hoped for (and more!) and we absolutely love having something that has been so beautifully created for us.'
ISSY & BOB
'It was a delight to work with Clarice to design our wedding bands. She was patient and persistent to achieve something which was perfect and exactly what I had imagined to compliment my engagement ring! We are both so happy with our rings and it was so special to share the process with Clarice.'
