Shopping for stylish, expensive looking jewelry for a fair price is a challenge. Barbara's studio was full of a variety in sizes, styles, and pricing which made shopping stress free. I loved how helpful and encouraging she was when I was deciding on what to pick. I valued her opinion and she made me feel special throughout the whole experience. I bought one of a kind earrings for an unforgettable prom.

Barbara makes the whole experience so personal and wonderful. I was looking for a gold jewelry belt that was going to be added to my maid of honor's dress so she stood out a bit more. I was having the hardest time finding what I wanted. After meeting with Barbara, she searched and had exactly what I was looking for and not at an absurd price like some other shops. I found everything I was looking for and the prices were excellent! I would highly recommend going to take a look here!

Barbara came recommended by the ladies doing my bridal hair and make-up. The accessories in her studio were the perfect fit for my elegant wedding look. The pieces she hand picks are well made and look like a million $$ but thankfully are reasonably priced for something you will likely only wear once. Barbara was welcoming and has an eye for what brides are looking for. It was great having an expert walk me the array of sparkles and pearls.

I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Barbara on numerous events and styled photo-shoots. Her jewelry is so unique and well-made. This is not your typical bridal jewelry, it is custom designed, hand-crafted, and absolutely stunning. Barbara works one on one with each of her clients to find them the right accessories to match their gown, aesthetic and vision for their special day. Barbara is truly an expert in her field and goes above and beyond for her clientele. If you are looking for stunning, unique and incredibly well made jewelry, do not hesitate to reach out to Perception Jewelry. You will not be disappointed!

Perception Jewelry is the perfect spot for bridesmaids' jewelry, fascinators and much more. I have a wonderful vintage piece from Perception that I personally treasure. Barbara listens carefully and creates one-of-a-kind pieces in her RI studio. She is a consummate professional and artist. No matter your style, you'll find a beautiful selection with Perception.

Perception Jewelry has a jewelry collection like no other! Everything for the bride to be, brides maids, and even for the mothers! Each piece is truly a work of art and completely unique. I highly recommend checking out their store front! Prices you cannot beat, with the sweetest owner, and impeccable jewelry!

Amazing, caring, professional.

Barbara is a true artist in her craft. We have several of her products in our bridal display at the salon and everyone comments on how great they look!
