client photo I got the package today before noon as the shipping stated, and the ring is BEAUTIFUL!!! I couldn't be happier! The images you guys send are so enlarged and zoom in on the detailing so much. The setting is just perfect the way you sent it. It's hard to gauge when you're looking at such a enlarged photo of the detailing versus the actual size.

TESTIMONIALS

I was blown away when I actually got to see and hold my ring, it surpassed how I imagined it would be. It is absolutely exquisite. The whole process of ordering the ring and sizing even though I am in Scotland could not have been easier. Every query was answered and I can not thank you and everyone involved enough for the ease and engaging manner in which you dealt with me. Again, the ring is beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it from my wedding day onwards as it is a very special ring for a very special occasion.

--Donna McIntyre, Preswick, Ayrshire, Scotland

Oh my God ladies, it is beautiful!! Seriously, I wasn't expecting it to be this gorgeous! I'm in complete awe!! I met with Slava today and I have to say, he's an absolute gentleman and it really added a special touch, meeting the person who made my ring. So now I'm sitting here admiring it and emailing everyone I know telling them all how fantastic you guys are!! If you've taken any pictures of the ring, please feel free to use them in any advertising/website stuff and if you want a letter from me saying how amazing you guys are and how happy I am there's no problem!!

WE LOVE KRIKAWA!!!!! We just cannot get over how beautiful the designs are and how perfect the products are!!!! We are HUGE fans! We drove from Parker Colorado just to see the products in person - we could not believe that they would be as beautiful in person as on the website - but we were not disappointed!!!! Everything you guys touch is wonderful!!! Thank you!

--Michelle and Clay Bixel, Parker, CO

Quality Control Survey Response
Education and guidance from our staff: Excellent. I think the guidance from Krikawa's staff was the main selling point for me. I had an idea in mind to create a very unique ring and Lisa helped me realize this idea and create a beautiful ring that everyone loves and more importantly, my fiance adores. Ease of Ordering: Excellent Despite my back and forth wavering, (diamonds or sapphire) the Krikawa team was with it all the way. I easily ordered over the phone and continually pestered the staff with questions and they provided me constant updates. Customer Service: Excellent. Of course! Everyone at Krikawa was wonderful to deal with!
Impression of overall aesthetic: Excellent The ring is absolutely gorgeous. Quality & Craftsmanship: Excellent. Very well made. From the first curve of the platinum wave to the crisp channeled sapphires, the ring screams of perfection. Stone Quality (if purchased from us): Excellent. Exactly what I was looking for. Any additional comments or suggestions: Thank you so much for your fine craftsmanship. Both the engagement ring and the wedding band are superb. Thanks again. PS: The Wedding band fits the E-ring perfectly!

--Blair Connelly, Pimonium, Maryland, USA

I finally received the ring about an hour ago and the only thing I can say is, Oh My GOD! The ring looks amazing, fantastic and any other word found in the thesaurus. The quality is incredible and I'm almost too excited for her to see it, I'm not sure if i can wait for the right moment to actually ask her rather than just pulling it out like, HEY LOOK! I can't tell you how pleased I am with how everything went. From the very beginning Jackie had been more than helpful and very pleasant to work with. Thank You. I'll be sure to let you know what she thinks when I finally ask her. Thank You again for everything.

--Lou Schisler, Sumper, SC

I've been looking forward for the arrival of the ring and it finally arrived this afternoon at 1630hrs Singapore time. The ring is awesome and it's beautiful beyond description. Over dinner earlier with my family members, I've proposed to my fiancée and she had accepted my proposal to be her life partner. I would like to say a very big heartfelt Thank You to you and team Krikawa for making this special moment in my life possible. Outstanding customer service from the heart that even someone like me so far away in Singapore is able to feel it. Once again, Thank You!!!

--Freddie Ling, Singapore

First of all, I want to thank all of you at Krikawa for your patience and diligence in this matter. Let me tell you the final ring is absolutely beautiful (my fiancée's exact words). you all went above and beyond with this. Lisa had told me the perforations were going to be deeper, but this final product is spectacular, the perforations go all the way through (this way surpassed our expectations)! We think that the small design changes you have made to add to the overall strength of the design really add to the beauty and refinement of the ring, and we are incredibly grateful for all the effort you have put into making this perfect for us. We really couldn't be happier. Please pass this message along to Lisa and everyone else involved. Thank you again from the bottoms of our hearts.

--Carlos Quinones, Miami, FL

Our rings arrived a few minutes ago, and I have to say they are simply gorgeous! You have all been an absolute delight to work with during this entire process. We really appreciate your artistry and professionalism, and of course will highly recommend your company to friends & family and on our engagement web site. Thanks so much and have a wonderful holiday.

--Shawna Rosen & David Keith, San Jose, CA

Just wanted you and the rest of the crew at Krikawa to know that the rings arrived here in the U.K. safe and sound. You guys really exceeded my expectations; the rings look amazing. Thank you so much for providing such quality work. I'll be sure to recommend Krikawa to anyone I know that is in the market for that little something exceptional.

--Dale L. Saul, Jr, Armed Forces, deployed

We are in California but chose Lisa to design our 2006 weddings band because of her beautiful unique work that we could not find anywhere else. We chose an existing design and sent her our own diamond for the center stone. What became an issue is that I have a very small ring finger, around 4.5. When the first ring came it was beautiful but the original design did not adapt well to such a small ring size. Lisa said that she had never made the design in such a small size and said she would alter the design to be more appropriate to the small ring size and took the old ring back and made me a new ring. The second ring arrived and it was perfect!...except it was in the wrong size – it came a half size too big. Lisa again took back the ring and cut the band to size it down. Everything was great until I broke the ring at the weld a few weeks later. Again, Lisa held to her professional standards and satisfaction guarantee and made me a THIRD brand new ring! Lisa did all of this at her own expense and without hesitation–the ring was platinum so it was not cheap to scrap the old rings! We received unbelievable customer service and I want to stress that this was a somewhat bizarre and unusual string of events (complicated by all communication via e-mail) – she also designed my husband’s ring and it was perfect and required no changes. If this has happened with a mall-type retailer or designer without such high ethical standards I know I would have been left out in the cold with a ring that was not what I had dreamed of. Thank you Lisa and Krikawa Jewelry!

--Malia Reid, Sacramento, CA

I received the ring this morning. Just wanted to say that I am extremely pleased with the result. I will definitely recommend your business to my friends. Thanks very much for a painless buying experience.

I ordered the Jam-Kat [guitar pick holder] just the other day. I took it out of the box, placed it on my finger as per directions . I started warming up on my nylon first, alternating between fingered scales and picked scales. The transition was seamless.. I tried the same thing with my steel acoustic. Except for the obvious differences in the attack you couldn't tell. What a wonderful invention you have here. Its incredible. I'd wish you luck, but you won't need it. I can guarantee that you'll be selling out to every music store, chain and discerning guitarist around the world very, very shortly. All my best to you and this AMAZING Jam-Kat.

--Richard

I received my ring a couple weeks ago & was very satisfied w/ the outcome. After I had examined it, I was very happy & amazed w/ the details. It was exactly what I had expected & you guys do your jobs well. Thank you for providing me w/ an unforgettable gift. My fiance & I are a really simple couple & the ring totally represents who we are. Again, thank you & hopefully we'll be able to do business again.

-- Joseph Poblador, Stockton, CA

The ring arrived today and is beautiful! Thank you (and all the Krikawa team) for your excellent work and service during the process.

Quality Control Survey Response
Education and guidance from our staff: All education and guidance was helpful as first time mokume gane purchases. Especially helpful was the info on etching and what that does to the metal, and what's best for people who are active/swim. Also helpful was understanding high polish and matte finishes, etc. While we did not end up using gemstones, your knowledge was super helpful. I love emeralds but didn't know they were soft and wouldn't work in the mokume gane or that stones would make the ring non-resizable! Both of these made it much easier for me to go the non-gemstone route.
Ease of Ordering: Easy peasy after we could decide on the mokume. So many choices, it was so hard! You checked in with us when you could not deliver rings at the expected date. Not a problem for us since we had a lot of leeway. Checking in and communicating with us was about the delay was appreciated.
Customer Service: Top notch and high quality. Responsive, timely, professional. Answered any and all questions. Never showed impatience or frustration, even with the dinkiest of questions. Really like the sample service! Very helpful and would always recommend this if not in the area.
Impression of overall aesthetic: While I was not surprised by my final product because I received samples of all the mokume types, I was a little surprised by the samples I received in the mail and what I saw on the website. The website displays the contrasts between the metals more than is actually true. On the website, they pop. I realize that this is probably subjective and depends being able to accurately photograph the rings since they are small. Once I saw the samples, my expectations were adjusted so that when I received the final product, it was what I expected, and better!
Quality & Craftsmanship: Well done. It's a forever ring!

--Nirmala Ramalingam, San Francisco, CA

I just wanted to let you guys know that the rings are absolutely BEAUTIFUL, exactly what I was hoping for! She did say yes thankfully! She loves the ring as well, and we have had many compliments on it already. Just wanted to say thank you and great job!

--Adam Manoucheri, O'Neill, NE

Everybody absolutely LOVES the ring (myself included). Meghan even got a compliment the other day from a waitress that it was beautiful and imagine if it was real. Needless to say when she said it was, the waitress was shocked. Even Meghan's insurance agent complimented her on the ring for style and creativity. It was exactly what I was looking for ... something absolutely unique and personal while simultaneously breathtaking. Thank you for all your help. I also wanted to thank you for the earrings ... I actually gave them to Meghan before the ring when we were opening gifts in Tucson and she thought they were so her style so it was perfect. We will absolutely be in touch when it comes time to make the wedding rings.

--James Carriere, Charlotte, NC

Just wanted to let you know that I just received delivery of the ring and I have to say it exceeds my expectations. It’s truly beautiful, I’m sure Lena will love it.Thanks so much for getting it to me on time. Have a very Merry Christmas.

--Francis Mella, Edmonton, AB, Canada

Just wanted to tell you that I love our ring. It is gorgeous, fits well and feels substantial. Love it, love it, and did I say I love it. I can't wait for Don to see it.

--Linda Rezendes, Olalla, WA

I have been meaning to write you to let you know that I received the ring and it looks beautiful. Thank you for all your help. The customer support in this process has been fantastic.

--Chris Munger, Washington, DC

We both loved how the ring turned out! Thanks so much for your wonderful service and for getting the ring to us on time. I will definitely be recommending you (already have actually) to my friends. I hope to shop with you in the future, as well. Thanks, again, Melissa. We couldn't be happier with your work and the service! Happy Holidays!

--Loari O'Halloran, Chicago, IL

I received the ring on Monday. Thank you very much I am very impressed with it and it is quite beautiful. Thank you for making it for me.

Just wanted to let you know that I just picked up the ring and it's awesome! I'm sure we'll be getting in touch in a few months to work on wedding bands. Thanks for everything!

--Matt Lambert, Durham, NC

Sorry this is so late, but I just wanted to thank you for such a great job on the ring. It is perfect! We love it! Hope you have a great holiday!

--Heather Gray, Arlington, VA

We received the new wedding band yesterday. We are very happy with how it came out. It looks great and matches the engagement ring very well. We just wanted to thank you for everything. I’m sending back the old one today. Have a good weekend and thanks again!

--Chris Botha, Orlando, FL

I just want to say how much we love John's ring! Thank you.

--Amy Campbell, Chemsford, MA

Hi Everyone!!! I have the ring and earrings in my hand, and they are beautiful!!! Thank you so much for your work and making these pieces come to life!! Linda and I are so thrilled, and these are truly unique, meaningful and very personal! The ring fits great, and I can't wait to start wearing it for the rest of my life, and start showing it off to my family and friends!! Thank you again, and I will be sure to pass on your information to anyone who is looking for unique, and beautiful custom jewelry! Is there anything in particular I should be aware of in regards to these pieces, and the care of them? Thanks again, It's been a pleasure dealing with you all, and if I am ever in the area of your store/shop.. I will stop in and say Hi!!

--Tom Stacy, Ipswich, MA

The ring is spectacular and the fit is perfect. We were concerned the ring would be be too large to be every-day practical, but it looks great on her hand and it is not too wide. Although the phantom mask is gone, there is a definite, traditional mask look to the ring. Please pass along my thanks to Lisa and to the entire team. . We will want to have you guys make us a matching wedding band.

--Gregory Barnhart, Encinitas, CA

I received Heather's ring this morning and I just wanted to say that it is simply stunning. I love it. And I know she will too. THANK YOU so very much for agreeing to design and make the ring. I am glad you and your team were able to be a part of our lives in this way.

--Brian Ralston, Arcadia, CA

First and foremost, the engagement ring has been a smashing success. It's been a treat to see the girly side of my normally level-headed, non-girly, nursing-student girlfriend. So, thank you very much on that account. I'm very pleased. Thanks again for all of your help so far.

--James Watriss, Arlington, MA

I wanted to say thank you for the great craftsmanship and hard work that was put into my wedding band (although it is much more than just a band). I’m so proud to wear such a unique ring to symbolize my unique connection to the woman I love and our commitment to each other. I was so excited when it arrived at my door and would love to wear it now and show it off, alas, just 13 days until the big event and then I’m sure I’ll be tired of showing it off to my friends and family. Once again the Kirkawa team has exceeded my expectations. Please offer my thanks to everyone who was a part of crafting my ring.

--Christopher Durand, Madison, WI

I received the ring yesterday, much earlier than I anticipated; thank you for you're help. The packaging was great, but the ring was stunning! I wanted to give my sincere thanks to you, Jackie, (and those I didn't get to meet,) for creating this beautiful ring. Thank you all so much!

--Blaine Toderian, Coquitlam, BC

Picked up the ring on Sunday . . . Perfect! 49 days and counting . . . You guys have been great this entire past year, cannot thank you enough!

--Scott Sayers, Overland Park, KS

I just got back to San Jose from Cleveland and came into the office to find the rings waiting for me. I opened the box and saw the two bands, and they are perfect! I like the high-polish design with the matte background, and the size and shape and overall look are perfect. Petra is looking forward to seeing them, and I’m sure she’ll be happy, but I’ll let you know! Thanks again for everything. It was fun working with you both and with the Krikawa team, and you came through as promised!
This is an overdue note of thanks for the engagement ring! It’s spectacular and precisely Petra’s style. Much more unusual and therefore I think more special than traditional engagement rings! Petra loves it, which is the most important thing! I would have written sooner, but the ring came right in the middle of our move, so I’m still unpacking boxes and catching up with the rest of the world.

--Bill Diamond, Saratoga, CA

It was even more beautiful than I thought it would be. I told her that it was coming on Saturday, but I surprised her a couple days early. If pictures speak 1000 words so they say and I think the attached camera phone pic says it all...Please send my regards and thanks to all that had a hand in making such a beautiful piece. I don't think either of us will ever tire of looking at it.

--Eric Lampi, Hoboken, NJ

The ring is lovely. I wore it last night to a concert and a woman (a stranger) stopped me to compliment me on my beautiful ring. It is beautiful and I will enjoy it for years to come. I just wanted to ask about the sapphires. Thanks for the explanation.that is what I thought. Take care and enjoy your new store.

--Liz Schuepbach, St. Mary's, GA

We received the rings this morning. They are beautiful! Thank you so much for everything! Please extend our compliments to your entire staff. The diamond is beautiful, the rings are beautiful and it was such a pleasure to work with you. Great customer service, amazing rings...it's been a wonderful experience.

I wanted to thank you for our rings. The engagement ring is amazing and looks great. Indy loves it!! We get so many comments about it. I don't think people realize how different it is until they look closely or we tell them but it is an eye stopper. Your service was amazing and your staff was always knowledgeable and helpful. I tell people about you whenever I get a chance. Thanks again.

--Adam Mordecai, Buffalo Grove, IL

I got the ring yesterday and it looks amazing! Thanks so much for everything.

--Cynthia Read, Pawtucket, RI

Today is the big day! I'm a bit nervous and have some butterflies in the stomach, but it should all go smoothly. I'm very excited about the ring, even though normally I'm not a big fan of jewelry. I have already received compliments on the ring, and it is not even on my finger yet. We will be back to visit you guys online soon. Thank you for a great experience.

--Mike Kimp

--Mukur Hazari, Centreville, VA

We received the wedding bands a couple of weeks ago and they are absolutely stunning. I would not want any other manufacturer creating these. Thank you so much for attention to detail, quick turn-around and quality service on both of our purchases. We really appreciate it!

--Paul and Antonella

We just got it and it looks perfect. Thank you so much. We couldn't be happier. Thanks again for making this so easy.

--Sean Powers, Falls Church, VA

I was waiting for my fiancé to be here before I opened the ring, and so I have just lay my eyes on its gorgeous beauty, elegant lines and it looks absolutely AMAZING!!!! I'm SO THRILLED! And my fiancé was very pleased too. Thank you so much! Please pass along my appreciating for the delicate work to the artist and we'll definitely recommend you to our friends & family!

Just letting you know that I received the ring and it looks great. Thank you all very much!

--Stacey Dale, Orange, CA

Although I'm sure FedEx has told you, I just wanted to let you know that I received my engagement ring. It's absolutely beautiful; more than I imagined. I didn't expect to say more than I imagined, because I had high hopes, but looking at the sparkle of the diamond, I was still entranced. I can't stop looking at it. By a lovely coincidence my parents happened to be visiting the day it arrived, and they were delighted as well. Thank you very much for not only your wonderful workmanship but your top-notch service throughout the process. Hopefully, in late May, I will be sending you a picture of the ring on the hand of my fiancée. And maybe at some point I'll be contacting you again about a matching wedding band or two. Thank you again.

--Jonathan Michaels, Monterey, CA

We got the ring this morning and it looks wonderful! It is perfect and exactly as we had imagined. Thank you so much!

--Lauren Bennett, Collierville, TN

Love the ring--happy--well done--very professional organized Krikawa service. Look forward to meeting you all.

--Randy & Helen, Katonah, NY

The item arrived safely and it is a knockout (with me). The real test will be Ms Gina on the occasion of her birthday. I am certain she will love it. Thank the designers and the jewelers for the beautiful work.

--Mike McLendon, Creedmoor, NC

The deed is done and she said yes! She adores the ring and hasn't been able to stop staring at it for over a week! It fit perfectly. I was really thrilled with your service and the quality of your work. I guess we'll be getting in touch in the future for the wedding bands. We wish you all the very best in 2009.

--Rick and Elizabeth LaRocca, Los Angeles, CA

I just wanted to thank you all so much for all of your patience and help in helping me find the perfect engagement ring! I sincerely appreciate your efforts in getting the ring to me by New Year’s Eve, even though that was a bit of a rush. The ring arrived New Year’s Eve morning (it was like Christmas morning for me!), and I couldn’t help but look at it over and over that day. It is absolutely gorgeous! The matte finish of the mokume really makes the diamond stand out that much more. We had plans to go out to a couple parties that night, so as Kari was getting ready, she asked how she looked. “You look great,” I said, “but I think something’s missing.” As she turned around to look in the mirror I took out the ring and said, “Why don’t you try this?” “Wait. What’s that? What are you doing? What’s that? What’s that?” she asked as I got down on one knee. She was so excited after waiting for over four years that she immediately began to cry and laugh at the same time. She was still emotional when I actually asked her to marry me, so I had to ask her again a few minutes later, but eventually I got a “Yes, are you kidding, absolutely” out of her! The ring fit her perfectly, and we were able to go out that night and see all our friends and her family, who also live in Springfield. She got to show off her beautiful ring all night. Neither of us could quit looking at it! She has received countless compliments on the ring, especially when people take a closer look at the interesting mokume band; it seems people almost always have to do a double take. It is all at once simple and complicated, standard yet extremely unique, plain but wonderfully ornate. The bottom line is that we both love it. Thank you all for your hard work, your effort in meeting our needs, and above all, the peerless craftsmanship and attention to detail in the ring itself. The ring is a revealing testament to the passion you have for your craft. It was nice to find and work with people who love what they do!

--Justin M. Wyrsch, Springfield, MO

I just wanted to let you know that me and my new fiance love the engagement ring! We can't wait to see how it looks with a wedding band in it this summer. Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for doing such a good job.

--Aaron Crosby, Bentonville, AK

Whew, it's always a great feeling when someone combines the designers work with something of their own and the designer like it.

--Kathleen Dubois, Hernando, MS

This ring is fantastic! I could have never imagined a more beautiful thing. IT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Sometime you'll have to explain to me how you achieve this magic.

--Jimmy Russell, New York, NY

I will gladly recommend Krikawa, after my fiancee purchased my ring there, I knew no where else could match the beauty. The staff was great, prompt, courteous and friendly. They were extremely accommodating and helpful as the samples and rings had to be shipped to an APO address in a war zone! No buyer's remorse here!!! Look forward to more purchases in the future.

--Ivory Cheney, Raleigh, NC

Krikawa's workmanship and artistry is unequaled, and her level of creativity is stunning. She has made 4 fantastic custom rings for me, each of which receives much admiration.

--Lidia Artiola, Tucson, Arizona

Steve and I absolutely adore our Krikawa ring, not only for its genius artistic beauty, but for all the loving intangibles that it represents. Thank you for creating a visually unique reminder of our everlasting love.

--Eliana and Steve Costello, Miami Beach, FL

The entire process from ordering to final delivery was excellent. However, nothing compares to the completed ring, which exceeds all of our expectations. We especially appreciate everyone's assistance in the design process given that [we] were rookies at all of this. In addition, I cannot thank you enough for accommodating my schedule during the visit to Tucson. The hospitality was wonderful and [Jackie is] a very delightful person. Lisa is fortunate to have such a wonderful and talented team of artisans and staff.

--Alan, Fairfax, VA, August 2008

I just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you to all of you. The rings look incredible. My fiancee Kristen won't stop telling me how awesome it is. Thank you for helping us put together a ring that is both unique and elegant and for getting it to us so quickly. It really couldn't have gone any better.

--Bill Sherman, Montgomery, AL

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding service!!! (You even upgraded the diamond for me!!!) I couldn't be any more excited with the ring you made. I've never even used this word before, but I must say that it is exquisite....The ring turned out beautifully! Your service was impeccable and it is so comforting to have that kind of service when purchasing something of this magnitude. Thank you so much for going the extra miles. It gave us both a beautiful symbol of the marriage we are entering into.

--Chris and Heather, USA

Lisa provided superior customer service, answering our many questions thoroughly and patiently and working with us to make sure the ring's design was exactly what we had in mind. When we received the ring we were bowled over by its quality and by the artistry that had gone into its design and creation.

--Karen Murphy, Berkeley, CA

...I just wanted to tell you that I truly love what you did with the ring. It's absolutely gorgeous, from the matte mokume to the raised setting. It fits well and is really completely perfect. Thank you so much for working with me on it so many times and for so long. I really appreciate your willingness to go back through the design with me when I wasn't sure what I wanted - you were just fantastic to work with through the whole process, and what you've done with the final design is amazingly beautiful. (I've gotten a zillion compliments already, and have been telling people to check out your work if they're interested, too!)

We got the rings and they're everything we hoped they would be. We've had a wonderful experience doing business with you and I would recommend any of my friends to you for jewelry. I even had a fleeting notion of a mokume cake server and knife set, but I think that might be out of our price range! I can't begin to express the beauty of the rings and how tremendously satisfied we are with our whole experience. (and you can quote me on that!)

I received the ring last week and I am very happy with it! My fiancée loves it and it quite impressed with the quality and finish. He spent all night looking at it in the light and placing it on his finger. I'm thankful that I found your website and that you were able to work with my budget. Most of all I am pleased in the quality and perfection in your work. I will definitely refer you!

--Tammy, Fremont, CA

I get compliments EVERYDAY on my beautiful ring, and I think about how lucky I am to have such a magical work of art on my finger - such a true representation of my husband's love. We love you and appreciate the beauty you bring to the world.

--Jenn and John Birchim, Goleta, CA

We love our experience from start to finish! My wedding ring is exactly what we were looking for, and your customer service team is great and easy to work with. We get so many compliments on my ring and I always tell people about Krikawa!

--Katrina Willey, Tucson, AZ

For me, buying just any traditional wedding rings was not an option. I was looking for great craftsmanship & quality and found that with Krikawa. Working with Lisa was a great and very personable experience, I felt she really embodied the artistic quality I was looking for.

--Del Hawbaker, Nutley, NJ

Our wedding was a week ago (on the 3rd) and it was perfect. Part of the reason for that is because of our beautiful rings. Even our photographer, who sees wedding rings every day, was stunned by the uniqueness and the quality of our rings. [...] Thank you again, for your professionalism, service, and high quality craft. We will treasure our rings for the rest of our lives.

--Heather

Thank you so much! The ring is more beautiful than anything we could have imagined. We really feel that Krikawa is concerned with giving their costumers the best possible experience.

--Mei Mei and Isaac Gaetz, Chicago, IL

My wife and I love the locket! Exquisite craftsmanship! It's gorgeous and we're both very happy with it.

--Matt Wilt, Huntsville, TX

Every single person I interacted with at Krikawa was special --and made me feel that way. From initial discussion, to design, to delivery commitment, Lisa and her crew were very pleasant and professional. Moreover, the end product is a true work of art, definitely an heirloom. Exquisite yet simple. Heartfelt thanks to Lisa, Melissa, Jackie and the rest of Team Krikawa. Mega-awesome website, to boot!

--Raymond Everson, FL

Buying something so important over the phone/internet can be frightening. However Lisa, Melissa, and Jackie will make sure that you feel confident and comfortable with your purchase. Lisa custom made our Mokume wedding rings 4 years ago. They are stunning and original! We are constantly getting compliments on them. I just received the two wedding bands I had made for my wife as a surprise Christmas present. They too are absolutely beautiful. Thank you Krikawa! You have fans, customers, and referrers for life.
