What a stunning piece of art!
Arn and his team were wonderful through the process of designing a ring for my now future husband! I had a million questions and they were always happy to discuss changes and customizing details. I was surprised and delighted to "feel" the weight of the ring in my hand when I received it, it's a serious piece of metal! It feels like it will last a lifetime. My partner absolutely loves his ring, and I love seeing it on him when he goes about his day. Thank you so, so much!Sent on 12/17/2019

It was such a great pleasure sitting down with the artist to discuss all the fine details that went into my custom ring. I had no idea just how many options were available and he took care to explain all the unique designs in his repertoire. It became clear throughout the process that Arn is both skilled and passionate about his art and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to get to know him and his equally talented wife. What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The finished product is more than I could have hoped for and the multitude of compliments I've received confirm that I am not the only one who is impressed by the product.Sent on 09/04/2019

"Everything looked so beautiful! It was really like a Susan Freda fashion show! Everybody loved their jewelry, from the necklaces to the parent gifts, everyone was so thrilled! You can tell Arn that Pete's best man loves his money clip too. Thank you both so much, the wedding truly wouldn't have been the same without all of your jewelry, we got sooooo many compliments from all of our guests! it really meant allot to us to have something unique and special for our wedding and you guys really delivered. We are both so proud to wear our rings for life! All the best."
p.s. I told Pete that he has to get me a new Susan piece for every anniversary Can't wait!

If we could give more than 5 stars we would. Arn and Sue have been so wonderful to work with as we prepare for our special day. With the first phone call, we knew this was going to be a great experience. Sue called back quickly after we left a message and we were able to meet Arn at their beautiful Tiverton studio within hours to talk about having wedding rings made. My partner and I have been together for 30 years; because of the new marriage equality laws in RI, we decided to tie the knot officially before friends and family. We have been wearing simple gold bands we exchanged decades ago, privately. Arn is incredibly talented and a joy to work with. He listens well, communicates warmly and clearly. By talking things over we ended up using our current rings to make new ones! This was very meaningful to us. Arn melted the gold rings and reformed them with a hammered design, adding diamonds we brought which had been passed down in our families. Through the process we met a few times and always left smiling. We were amazed with the beautiful rings Arn crafted for us and we will cherish them as the symbols of our vows forever. Highly, highly recommended!Sent on 02/05/2014

The jewelry is exquisite, the artistry unique and the service was heartwarming. I walked into their studio and was so impressed by the singularity of each piece. The rings I had made for my husband and I have been showcase pieces through our many travels with the same response to the different style and, again, the uniqueness. I highly recommend the experience of this studio.Sent on 03/09/2013

Prior to finding Sue and Arn, I had known for a long time that I would want a wedding/engagement ring that was truly unique. I spent a considerable amount of time looking for independent jewelers and artists to find someone who could work with me to design and create a custom ring.Sent on 03/11/2013
In a stroke of luck, I walked into Sue and Arn's studio one day and instantly fell in love with their artistry and craftmanship. Not only was their work absolutely stunning, unique, and incredibly well-made, but they are both such warm, open and down-to-earth people. I made many trips to the gallery over the course of many months to work on the ring. We exchanged ideas and ended up with a design that was a combination of Sue's previous work and some of my own inspiration/creativity. Throughout the whole process, Sue and Arn were thorough, helpful, professional, and inspiring. They put a great deal of effort into making sure the ring fit right, that the design worked, that the ring fit my needs and would be durable and last, and overall that I was happy.
In the end, I have an absolutely beautiful piece of art for a wedding ring, and I am thrilled to support Sue and Arn's work. There is a lot of positive energy in this ring, obviously in the love that it represents between myself and my partner, but also the wonderful energy and inspiration from Sue and Arn themselves. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. They are simply AMAZING!

Working with Sue and Arn to create both our engagement and wedding rings along with my necklace and earrings was such a dream! Prior to our engagement, my (now) husband and I just happened to be visiting the studio out of which she works in order to see a polaroid exhibit. We stumbled upon Sue and Arn's jewelry and were struck by how unique it was. We both knew that we didn't want anything big, blingy, or traditional for our rings; instead, we wanted something simple, special, and a little different and their work fit the bill. The intricate twisting wire of Sue's work really struck a cord with my romantic vision and my husband liked the iron work and unique mokume rings that Arn creates.Sent on 07/28/2013
We emailed Sue a few days later and she was extremely responsive. Several trips after that, we had selected and resized our engagement rings, which Sue and Arn already had in the store, and then had wedding bands designed to look like the engagement rings but with different materials (Arn was very knowledgeable about the materials and willing to answer any questions we had). Once we got married, we stopped wearing the engagement rings and only wore the wedding rings. Sue and Arn are going to work with us to re-purpose our engagement rings and do something else with them.
I also worked with Sue to select a necklace and earrings to wear with my wedding dress -- and I've worn them after the wedding, as well! I selected a beautiful, intricate gold twisted wire necklace with small fresh-water pearls and matching dangling earrings. I love all of her work and will definitely be buying from Sue for years to come!
Sue and Arn are warm and wonderful people who are dedicated to their craft and to their customers, whom they treat like friends. My husband and I got to know both of them, met their lovely son, and most certainly call them friends. It was a really special way to start our commitment to each other. I would recommend them and their unique work 100%!

beautiful custom engagement ring
When my husband and I got married many years ago, I never got a proper engagement ring, and so we decided to ask Arn to make me one with a blue sapphire. He was great about every aspect of the process: design advice, offering options, communicating during the process, and giving us a beautifully made ring in a timely manner. Arn is friendly and personable and a pleasure to work with.Sent on 09/05/2019
