Great Service. Every time I've walked into Goldworks, I have had an excellent experience. I have interacted with several different staff members, and they have all been incredibly helpful and willing to work with me. It does not have the feeling of a large, impersonal jewelry store, but instead has a much more welcoming atmosphere. They are also excellent at what they do. I now recommend them to everyone I know.
Exquisite Jewelry made by Genuine Artists.
I have bought several pieces at Goldworks and highly recommend them. The jewelry pieces are works of art and each piece shows off the creativity and excellence of the artist that made it. It just feels great to wear something that is not only beautiful but also has meaning.
The whole experience at Goldworks is pleasant and Wren really takes her time to get to know you and show you their precious art without being pushy. The store is more of a studio and the other art, including pottery and mirrors, really add to the experience. I don't buy meaningful pieces anywhere else.
Best Jewelery Shop in Chapel Hill - beautiful stuff, great people, low key, great prices..
I had done a lot of shopping around from online to on foot and but when I walked in and was greeted by Erica I felt right at home.
Erica had a small selection of very nice diamonds in the range I was looking for. Every one that I looked at was high quality and after previously comparing prices versus internet sites like Blue Nile I found they were very well priced relative to online and much better priced than other local stores. Plus after seeing of variety of stores and seeing diamonds of all sorts of different ratings I can tell you seeing a diamond in person is important.
Goldworks is just what one looks for in a jewelery store--knowledgable and very personal service, a wide variety of styles, fair prices and a jeweler who really cares about their clients.
The entire experience was FANTASTIC!. My boyfriend proposed marriage to me in May 2007 and presented me with a beautiful diamond - the ring setting itself was simple because he said it was "temporary". He wanted me to meet with Wren at Goldworks and she would design a setting that I would like. Seven months went by before I could arrange the time. I recently met with Wren and we modified one of her previous designs to personalize it for me. I was very impressed with her personal approach and her expertise. Yesterday I picked up the finished ring and it was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous. So beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. Wren said the design would make the diamond stand out and that is exactly what it does. It's almost like the diamond is speaking , saying "look at me!" One of the best parts about this experience is that my engagement ring is exactly that , it's MY engagement ring! Not just one bought from a store and given to me. It's personal! And, to me, that is very important. I can't wait to return to design MY wedding ring!!! I realize this reveiw is more of the "right brain" style, it isn't always about carats-color-clarity-cut, etc.-personal service is also very important. Yet all those things matter when buying diamonds and believe me my fiance had all those hard questions covered in his original meeting with Goldworks. Which is why his final decision, after doing alot of research, was to buy at Goldworks.
Hands down, the best jeweler I've worked with. Goldworks completely changed my perspective and attitude towards the whole engagement ring buying process! Prior to discovering Wren (the owner of Goldworks), I had spent weeks visiting store after store throughout Chapel Hill and the Triangle. Some places were ridiculously overpriced for what they offered. Some acted like used car salesmen, while others flat out lied to me about what they were selling. A friend finally turned me on to Goldworks and, after an initial call, my spirits picked up. Wren worked with me to figure out what's really important in a diamond that fits my specific needs. After sitting with me for over an hour, going over each of the diamonds to help me pick the best of the lot, it turned out that the nicest one was actually the cheapest of the three but, due to how she works, she had no incentive to stick me with the higher price tag. I truly felt like she was my partner in the entire process. So not only did I end up with a beautiful diamond, but I got a better deal than I could have found anywhere else! The next day I brought my fiance in to meet Wren and finish the ring design selection. She made the whole process such a great experience that she's landed a major role in the story of our engagement. The ring turned out beautifully, the diamond was nicer than any I had come across previously, the price was well within my budget, and I ended up finding a jeweler I can trust and enjoy working with. There's no doubt we'll be heading back to Goldworks for our wedding bands. As a side note, her store and display items are breathtaking. The designs are all so elegant and the sapphires and other colored stones have to be seen to be believed. She truly has an eye for picking gems!
Great artistic experience getting our rings.
Two different friends recommended Goldworks for their design ability and their willingness to work with unique designs. We worked closely with Ken on our ring designs. He helped us find similar designs on the Internet and then drew out a great design. He worked with the materials and the gems we wanted. Wren created a pair of custom earrings for us and we love the art that went into this piece as well.
The other folks at Goldworks helped us with logistics and we had a blast with everybody. I would recommend Goldworks to anybody who is looking for a distinctive piece of jewelry or art.
Unique custom jewelry in Chapel Hill. My husband and I had been looking for new unique wedding bands for years and had not found the right jeweler. A friend recommended Goldworks to us. We met with Ted and Wren Hendrickson who helped us design the custom, unique rings we were looking for in the Mokume Gane style. We were so thrilled with the professional, knowledgable, down-to-earth, patient staff!! Everyone who contributed made this a great experience for us. The rings we had made surpassed our expectations in quality and design. And the prices were great!!! We recommend making the trip to Chapel Hill just to look at the beautiful showroom and other custom jewelry. Thanks Ted, Wren, Erica & Janet!
Beautiful jewelry, great customer service.
My husband and I were just recently married (October 6th, 2007) and we both have wedding bands from Goldworks. I can not begin to express how happy we both are with our rings. It?s not only the jewelry that makes Goldworks the best, but the relaxed environment and the warm, personable customer service.
My husband chose a Mokume Gane band made by Ted Hendrickson and I have a set that was designed by Wren Hendrickson. Both are very gifted artists and we are delighted to have found their store.
Check out their website, it is very well done and extremely informative. But, I would highly recommend hopping in your car and taking a trip to University Mall. You won't be disappointed.
Fantastic Local Jewelry Store! A must go for all!. Staff is outstanding and the quality is amazing! They worked on my ring till it was perfect, to their standards of corse. It was totally worth the wait! They had it in a size too small to fit me so they made one in my size but, it was not to the jewelers standards so they made the ring a 3rd time to make sure it was purfect!!! I Absolutely love it!!! We liked the store and staff so much that I had another ring custom made!!!
Amazing Design and Amazing Service.
Wren and Ken were simply amazing in helping us choose a diamond and then create our custom design for our wedding rings. Their talent is unsurpassed in this area and their level of service is unmatched. We know, we spoke to quite a few jewelers before choosing Goldworks. We cannot recommend them enough and will refer as many people as we can to them.
Ken executed the design beyond our wildest dreams and the resulting ring is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
Thank you Goldworks for creating such an amazing piece for us.
