“We came in to see John to organise having an engagement ring and wedding band made on a strict budget. He went well beyond our expectations and delivered two absolute stunning rings. Thank you so much John! Highly recommend his craftsmanship and support throughout the process.

We just received our wedding bands from John who also designed and made my fiancé’s engagement ring to set a sentimental family sapphire. All 3 of the rings were handmade and exactly how we wanted them. Prior to finding Body & Soul I shopped around the Geelong area and I can safely say that John and Kerri were the only people who truly seemed to care about making the design as beautiful and robust as possible whilst also at a competitive price. I cannot recommend them enough.

I have had John make me 4 pieces of jewellery and recommended him to friends. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of workmanship. Any time I wear one of the pieces John made for me, I get compliments and I always tell them to go to Body and Soul Jewellery. You have a customer for life, John. Thank you.

From the moment I saw the stone I knew it was for me. John worked with me to plan a ring design which would show it off to best advantage while still keeping the setting low profile and very comfortable in a practical sense. His creativity and eye for detail are so impressive yet he is very low key and easy to deal with.

It is the first time I’ve had anything made from scratch and I am so very happy with the result. Thank you John

Really enjoyed the whole experience of having  John design my beautiful opal ring.   John was full of fantastic design ideas and really guided us well through the whole process, nothing was too much trouble.   John always considered our preferences and we both are so pleased with the end result, a truly unique and gorgeous ring that is simply stunning and one which I’ll always treasure.

From the minute I walked in the door I knew I came to the right place.   John put my mind at ease and went on to create the perfect one off engagement ring.   Can’t wait to do business with you again and can’t thank you enough.

I was lucky enough to be given my great grandmother’s diamond ring as an engagement ring.  It needed to be completely remodeled and re-sized while keeping the antique features I love.  We took it to multiple jewellers before we found Body and Soul Jewellery, where John really listened to what we wanted and made great suggestions. The ring he created is absolutely beautiful and exactly what I had hoped for!  We asked John to make our wedding rings too, as we were so happy with his work. Thanks John! We’ll be back!

John was amazing! Resized my eternity ring, cleaned engagement and wedding band and I had them back within 24hrs! So so happy with service, price and result. Thank you again. Will definitely be back.

John and Kerri’s personalised service, excellent communication and high quality workmanship keeps me coming back… and I live in Central Victoria, not in Geelong!

Last year they did a wonderful job of restoring my engagement ring back to its original beauty; keeping its original design. I was thrilled that I could keep the sentimental design which I fell in love with all those years ago! Had I gone someone else I would have just been advised to buy a replacement. Where would have been the sentiment in that? After 27 years I am so pleased I still have my original design. I hadn’t realised it was so important to me… glad I listened to John’s advice on this.

Just recently I entrusted John’s craftsmanship to do repairs to my precious belcher gold chain and to replace the broken and worn out bolt ring clasp. It came back with an even stronger bolt ring clasp!

Thanks John and Kerri. I always appreciate that you care as much about my jewellery as I do.

What an incredible Master Craftsman! John is a very talented, honest, friendly jeweller… I have had three pieces made by him and have been over the moon with result every time! Thanks John!

John and Kerri made my experience with Body & Soul stress-free. I was very nervous about having an anniversary ring remodelled, but with John’s experience and amazing enthusiasm for what he does we were able to come up with a beautiful original design which I am very proud to wear.

John kept in contact with me throughout the whole experience – which was great – and finished my ring a lot quicker than I ever expected possible. I regularly receive comments on my ring and am very proud to say where it came from.

I decided to go to John and Kerri after reading other’s feedback on the website. If I can say anything it would be please go and see them, they will make you feel very relaxed and make you feel part of the experience – which meant a lot to me when dealing with something so personal. Again, John and Kerri, thank you so much for my beautiful ring.

I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for making such a fantastic ring to celebrate our 25th silver wedding anniversary.

My wife was so thrilled to receive such a beautiful ring. I’m having trouble wiping the smile off her face!

November 2014

John, I just wanted to pass on a massive thank you for the work you put into re-designing my engagement ring – you’ve taken a family ring and updated it, while still remaining true to the
original design.

I was very nervous about having any work done to it, but what you’ve done was better than anything I pictured and I absolutely love it! I already pass your name onto anyone that has jewellery related enquiries and will continue to do so, as will Locky. Cannot thank you enough!

My unique Art Deco engagement ring is absolutely stunning! John at Body and Soul Jewellery truly exceeded my expectations.

I was extremely nervous about how the intricate details on the ring would turn out, however John nailed it. John’s craftsmanship is outstanding and you can tell he takes pride in his work.

I would highly recommend Body & Soul Jewellery to everyone.

July 2014

I went to Body & Soul to have my engagement ring remodelled. I chatted with John, he drew a diagram of what I explained and I waited anxiously for my phone call to tell me my ring was ready. I was so nervous as my ring meant so very much to me as you can imagine.

I just picked my ring up yesterday and I was so happy when I saw the finished ring. It was stunning, exactly as we had discussed. It is so beautiful and my husband and I couldn’t be happier. I am wearing it now and showing it off to everyone. It is amazing.

Thank you so very much John and Kerri, you have made me so happy. I have never had a more beautiful piece of jewellery.

John and Kerri, thank you for remaking my ring and doing such a great job. I adore it, and am wearing it very proudly.

Hi John, I have just come home from work and seen my ring – I absolutely love it! It’s perfect, the filagree around the stone is stunning. Thank you so much for making it so beautifully, and for polishing up my other ones as well. Very happy customer.

January 2013

We went to Body & Soul Jewellery because we wanted a unique engagement ring that was handcrafted, and of the highest quality to signify our commitment. Their personalised service made it so easy to bring my dream flower ring to reality.

My ring is truly amazing, it lived up to the dream in every respect and I can’t stop looking at it on my hand. Thank you John and Kerri – I have been recommending you to all the people I know.

I couldn’t recommend Body & Soul Jewellery highly enough. Looking for that perfect one of a kind engagement ring, personalised for my fiancee, had proven to be the most daunting experience I’d ever encountered. With no knowledge of clarity, cut, polish, carats and all that other diamond talk, I was relieved to come across John at Body & Soul Jewellery.

Patiently John worked with me, educating me along the way to create my cloudy ideas into an incredibly beautiful work of art. Anyone looking for a professional approach with a personalised touch would be foolish to look elsewhere.

Thank you Body & Soul Jewellery.

I knew the one thing I wanted my wedding ring was to be unique and special to me – not mass-produced. My jewellery is quite chunky and almost masculine, so wanted my wedding ring to compliment the rest of my jewellery.

Being new to Geelong, I was unsure where to start. I called around a few places, and each was met with a rather disinterested, “not sure if we can do that”, or “we specialise in diamonds”, or “come and have a look at our range, you are bound to find something you will like here”.

Feeling like I was going to have to settle for something I was unhappy with, I then spoke with John. Relief! I told him I was after a thick band in yellow gold and platinum with roman numerals of our wedding date. His response was so different to everyone else I had spoken to. There was a genuine excitement in his voice: “Yes, come in,  have a chat and we’ll draw up some designs,” he said.

As soon as I went to the Body & Soul showroom, I knew this man was an artist with a genuine love and passion for his work. Huge piles of jewellery design books littered his desk and – after a long chat and some rough drawings – a few months later I was presented with EXACTLY what I wanted. Not only had he completely nailed the design brief, he and his wife Kerri were an absolute delight to deal with.

If you are after something beautiful and unique – look no further than Body & Soul Jewellery.
