“Mara catalogued the entire Sonia Petroff collection which consisted of over 800 pieces in an extremely meticulous, knowledgeable, and professional manner over a period of 18 months, linking her descriptions with a personalised database. I couldn’t have done without her help.”
“I had my engagement ring remodelled and a new wedding ring made. I was absolutely thrilled with the results and I can honestly say it was even better than I could have hoped for. I am so happy with the results, thank you so very much”
“My pieces of jewellery created by Mara are my most treasured. The uniqueness of the designs, quality of gems and expert construction of the materials are of exceptional calibre. I’m regularly complimented on her creations when wearing them!”
“Mara designed and made two exquisite pieces of jewellery for me:
1. Redesign of oval engagement ring. Originally set in very heavy platinum, it was quite dated. Mara’s new design went above and beyond my expectations. Set with pave diamonds surrounding the main oval stone as well as diamonds around the band, it is so delicate and beautiful. Mara transformed my vision and made it a reality and was such a pleasure to work with. Mara was exceptionally patient as nothing was too much trouble including my many, many questions! Mara’s technical knowledge, creativity and insight into the world of gemstones and jewellery design is impressive!
2. redesign of my mother in law’s brooch. This was a huge undertaking as not only was it a technical challenge, the piece was sentimental so there was no room for error! Again, Mara exceeded all expectations in designing and producing show-stopping diamond and pearl drop earrings.
From initial inspirational drawings including several options to take me through the process- the experience was flawless. People comment every single time I wear them and along with the ring they are my favourite pieces of jewellery. I cannot recommend Mara highly enough, there is no one like her as she is a true gem herself! A rare find. “
“Working with Mara was a delight. She beautifully & stylishly redesigned an eternity ring for me into a classic piece to best showcase the stones.
“Based on a design I already had in mind, Mara with her eye for detail, style and patience was able to make my dream ring into reality. Throughout the process, Mara kept me informed of every stage of the production and although I was not quite sure of the computer-aided design of the ring, I was reassured by Mara that the ring would turn out fine…. and Mara kept to her word. The outcome is a beautiful eternity ring – a ring I wear with pride. Blessed to have had Mara to help me. Thank you”
“I love all the pieces I have from Mara/Gem Voyager! Classic and wearable forever – I’m always receiving compliments on them. Also, love that there’s a range of items for everyday wear and gift-giving. Mara is always very helpful and accommodating and so easy to work with which is an added plus!”
“I worked with Mara on a project that involved photographing and cataloguing over 800 items for an Italian fashion jewellery house. Mara was organised and meticulous. She took pride in her attention to detail and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Any project that Mara embarks on will be completed with the utmost efficiency”.
