Love the bands
Was looking for a unique style of rings for our engagement and wedding. Binnion's rings were super unique and they worked with us to get a custom set designed, came out better than imagined! Great quality and a very unique set of rings! Also been super working with us to get the fit just-right and adjust the rings to stop spinning!Sent on 07/17/2020

Incredible Customer Service!
Working with James Binnion Metal Arts was incredibly easy! Communication with Terry Binnion and Elizabeth was always incredibly thorough, polite, personal, and thoughtful. I love the fact that they send gauges in quarter size increments if you have an estimated ring size to give you the chance to test out sizes to find the perfect fit.Sent on 07/20/2020
Given that we had issues getting my ring sized correctly from another jeweler, the ease and customer service from James Binnion Metal Arts was absolutely phenomenal, both by comparison and on its own.
It has been over six months since we received the ring, and my fiancé absolutely loves his blackened Damascus steel ring, and I am so happy that I found something so perfect for him! We would both happily work with them again!
James Binnion Metal Arts's reply:Thank you for such kind words. We loved working with you and send our best wishes to you both! Terry
