I had a necklace made for my wedding as Iwas looking for a gold necklace and couldn't find anything suitable anywhere. The service was excellent and the end result was beautiful. Really talented workmanship and I can't fault the service at all.

I had heard many good things about David and his skills so when my boyfriend proposed with a very unusual shaped engagement ring I decided to go to Snooty Fox to have the wedding bands made. I was not disappointed! My ring was an antique and very hard to match but David did a fantastic job! They look like a set. Also very reasonable, I can't wait to wear it.

David helped design and make three beautiful rings for my daughters from my mother's 3 stone engagement ring. They were all fabulous, each one was so individual and so suited to each daughter. We cannot thank him enough or praise him more highly. They now have something very special and a lasting memory of their Nan. We certainly give him 5 stars.

We are getting married in June and have been on a tight budget. We were struggling to find rings we liked but at a price we could afford. All the staff at Snooty Fox were brilliant in making our choice of rings, polishing my engagement ring and allowing us to pay bit by bit. A big thank you to them all.

A massive 'thank you' to David and staff at the Snooty Fox - you helped us through the potential minefield of choosing wedding rings for our big day last month. From the moment we walked into the shop we were looked after and given superb advice. Then regular communication whilst they were being made, right until the moment of trying them on. As we expected - they both fitted perfectly. You helped make our wedding that bit more individual, and exactly as we wanted. You have two new dedicated customers - thank you and keep up the good work!

David made both mine and my husband's wedding rings and altered nmy vintage engagement ring to fit by changing the shank. He had to cut into my wedding ring to fit it around my engagement ring and he did this perfectly. Not only that, but he fixed an old family watch belonging to my husband and got a new strap - allat the last minute. He knew how important this item was and it really meant the world to both of us. He is now busily working on the vintage watch my husband brought me as a wedding present. He is a great man and highly skilled and we are customers for life.

I was looking for my wedding rings and was quite worried I had left it a bit late. I went into Snooty Fox and all my worries disappeared! They were so helpful and had my rings ordered within minutes. They were hand made in the shop and were ready the next week! Amazing. I'm so happy with the service I will be going there first in the future!

Since moving to Shrewsbury three years ago I have only heard good things from friends who have had their own experiences at Snooty Fox. With that in mind I always knew I would approach Dave to help create the perfect ring for my girlfriend (now fiancee). Dave is very warm welcoming and obviously knows his stuff inside and out. I had some ideas and examples of work that I knew Amy would like and left it in Dave's very capable and creative mind. He produced an amazing ring that blew me away as well as Amy. She loves it to pieces and was absolutely thrilled. We will certainly be back for wedding rings.

Thank you, yet again, David, for renewing my ancient, treasured watch and enabling me to wear my late Mother's engagement ring. The standard of your work is truly astonishing and I am thrilled to be able to enjoy pieces of jewelry that mean so much to me. One day, I will have huge pleasure in commissioning you to make something utterly unique!

David Thomas at Snooty Fox has made such an incredible job of reproducing a much loved lost earring that I cannot tell which was the original. Never be afraid of going in and talking to the staff, the prices are extremely reasonable and the craftsmanship astonishing. I never thought I would ever find someone who could replace my earring within my budget, thank you so much.

I have asked David to make several unique pieces of jewellery which needed delicate and precise and very intricate skills. David did a remarkable job and with some additions of his own creativeness, the items of jewellery were stunning. Very individual and special. I would never consider going anywhere else while he is in business!

I wanted a necklace to match a much loved bracelet I bought in Bath many years ago. I visited Snooty Fox and they did an amazing job to create a matching one for me at a very reasonable cost. He also mended a clasp on the bracelet and it came back like new. Great car and excellent customer service. Thanks!

My Fiancee and I were looking for engagement rings, this was the first shop that we went in to. David is a very knowledgeable man and very good at his trade. After a chat about our requirements, he made us feel very confident that he could make exactly what we wanted. We then went off to look at other jewelers in the town. After visiting a couple more, we decided to go back to Snooty Fox and place our order. David has made us the most beautiful hand crafted engagement rings. engraved on the inside and out, with great attention to detail and exactly what we wanted. I would not hesitate in recommending David Thomas at Snooty Fox Jewellery to made the most perfect, unique, hand crafted jewellery for all occasions. His service is second to none.

Had my fiancé's engagement ring made by Dave, took an idea and left it totally in his hands! The outcome is beautiful! From the stones to the setting! We are both very very happy with the outcome and especially as it was complete in such a short time frame! I can't recommend Snooty Fox enough! We will be returning to have our wedding rings made! Thank you so much!

I produced four art deco bracelets, beyond repair I was told but nothing was too much rouble for the team at Snooty Fox! Bracelets painstakingly repaired, cleaned and made ready for my birthday and 30th anniversary. So much care and time was given with a smile. Highly recommended.

In April 2012, said about Snooty Fox

Uninspired by high street jewellers i decided for my silver wedding anniversary to get a pair of rings made. At Snooty Fox i was met by David and between us we agreed a design and an interim meeting to finalise details and, in this case, engrave a special message. The rings are terrific, just what I wanted, the service was great; honest and bang on-time, and believe it or believe it not, the price was far lower than the high street. The entire experience was brilliant. If you want something special with a bit of personality, I recommend you give David a call at Snooty Fox. I'll be going back.

In February 2012, said about Snooty Fox

I received exceptional service from David when I commissioned a ring to celebrate a milestone birthday. He guided my partner and I through the entire design process personally - from my initial "doodle", to selecting stones, choosing a metal through to final design, assembly and finishing. At every stage of the process we received a wealth of guidance and expert advice, various options and a guide on costs. I am now the proud owner of a truly bespoke diamond, ruby and platinum ring and I love it! I cannot recommend David's work highly enough, it is exceptional and when combined with that very, very personal touch, it made the daunting experience of having something designed and created from scratch a truly magical experience. I am already contemplating another commission. Thank you Louise & Darren
