What Customers are saying...
I cannot say enough positive things about Hsiang-Ting Yen and HTY Jewelry! She has great creative design and artistry. Her work is well-made. Great customer service. She even offers custom jewelry design for a one of a kind piece of jewelry. I am a happy, repeat customer who highly recommends her work. You will not be disappointed, and you will be supporting small business and a local artisan!
In honor of the birth of my daughter my husband bought a solitary diamond (which is her birthstone). His idea was to have it incorporated into a piece of jewelry that I can wear and then pass down to her. We wanted something truly unique and something that can become an heirloom.
Hsiang-Ting was a pleasure to work with and helped talk us through our options and suggested styles so that it could incorporate well into my current collection while having an appearance that is one of a kind. Since we loved some of the rings we saw on her website she suggested we use my birthstone to compliment the diamond and as a symbolic gesture. I am so excited to pass this art piece along (although I’m sure I’ll miss wearing it myself).
Hsiang-Ting created the gorgeous engagement ring that I used to propose to my girlfriend. My now fiance absolutely loves the stunning work that Hsiang-Ting did. Working with her went so smoothly from the design process where she took my abstract and vague ideas and created stunning designs to choose from to the actual process of creating the ring and giving me updates each step of the way. I highly recommend her work.
Very quick response to my initial inquiry, and a very creative craftswoman. Glad I found her!
Hsiang-Ting's work is amazing! I had a fairly abstract idea of what I wanted when I came to her and she was able to create something beautiful that I could give to my sisters. She is so quick and responsive and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I will definitely come to her again in the future!
Great customization and design! Hsiang-Ting was very patient and opened to the communication to make sure our concepts are aligned. Now that I received my ring, I just can't take my eyes off it =)
My boyfriend and I met Hsiang-Ting Yen at a local arts festival in Durham and I was immediately drawn to her station because of her beautifully crafted jewelry. I was specifically interested in a bracelet for the rich color and geometric components. The overall look of the piece was very architectural. I did not expect this piece to be gifted to me for our one year dating anniversary but when it was I was thrilled! The bracelet was slightly too long for my wrist.
What I was truly appreciative of was HTY arranging to FT me to discuss next steps to amending the bracelet to fit. She was thoughtful and responsive in the exercise and we met for coffee to talk about the options. She was very helpful and the finished product is beautiful and special. In this meeting she showed me the lovely custom work in her portfolio. She is truly committed to creating exquisite, high quality design in jewelry.
"Hsiang-Ting at HTY Jewelry is an amazing artist and made me the perfect 35th Anniversary ring!! She was a joy to work with and everything that she suggested made my ring one of a kind and absolutely beautiful! Thank you Hsiang-Ting"
I ordered a custom sterling silver bracelet from HTY Jewelry two years ago as a treat for my birthday. The design contains my favorite flower Sakura and pink zircon with the numbers that have personal meanings to me. The process was very smooth and the finished bracelet is just so beautiful. I've been wearing this bracelet every single day, and it still looks like brand new. Thanks a million! Looking forward to work with you again!
I absolutely love them and I get a lot of compliments. They look great with my little triangle studs!
"I bought earrings from you at the Bluegrass Festival on Saturday and I've basically only taken them off to shower and sleep since then. (I'm the person who came back after a few hours of pondering...) I'm very glad I decided to buy them because the more I wear them the more I love the design and how they catch the light. I just wanted to thank you via email because I think all artists deserve praise for work that is beautiful. I really like the general style of your work and hopefully the next time I have some "extra" money I can buy another piece from you.
Thank you again!"
"Hsiang Ting is very well trained and knowledge about many aspects of designing and repairing jewelry. I have several of her enamel and metal pieces that I wear often. When I ordered special gifts she was meticulous, making certain that the color and design were as desired. Most recently Ting helped me address a problem I had when three of my rings were cutoff from my finger in the ER when I broke my arm, my engagement ring, wedding ring and anniversary bands. She redesigned them in a more contemporary design. Seeing sketches and CAD designs throughout the process was helpful. Everything was done on a reasonable timetable and it was hand delivered!"
"I waited over 3 years to find the right person to create a spoon ring for me. I know this sounds simple, but it's not. My Grandfather designed this spoon for Gorham Silver. Hsiang-Ting took the time to figure out what I wanted and how I wanted it to fit. Now I get to wear a beautiful ring every day and think about Grandpa Rudy."
"Hsiang-Ting is a true artist. Every piece she makes is crafted with such vision and care, and each is truly unique and one of a kind. The pieces of hers I own are easily my favorites and most worn in my collection, and I'm complimented on her earrings basically everywhere I go. Not only is she incredibly talented, she's very sweet and an absolute pleasure to work with!"
"I worked with Hsiang-Ting on the design for my wedding ring, and it was a wonderful experience! She had great ideas and vision, helping to guide me to a design that was exactly what I wanted. The result was a beautiful art nouveau floral design with lily of the valley motif utilizing diamonds and my birthstone. She was open to redesigns and came to me with several options from which to choose. I will definitely be getting her help in reimagining some of my older jewelry so that I can enjoy it more!!"
"I had SUCH an awesome time working with Hsiang-Ting on my wedding band. I really wanted something non-traditional and custom-made to compliment my engagement ring. We met one-on-one so she could get a feel for my style and what I was looking for and she took it from there. The whole process was so much fun, she's an incredible artist who is really good at listening to you and running with your ideas. In the end I have a GORGEOUS wedding band that is completely one-of-a-kind. I am in love with my ring and it is so special knowing that I am the only one with a ring like this, I can't thank her enough! I would highly recommend Hsiang-Ting if you're looking for a custom piece of jewelry!!!!!!
"Creative and unique jewelry design , if you like hand made style, HTY Jewelry will be the best choice for you."
"Hsiang-Ting made wedding bands for my fiance and I and we were so pleased with our experience and the results! We were not sure what we wanted when we first met with her, but she provided us with several sketches of ideas and different metal/jewel options and in the end we were able to get the perfect rings! She communicated with us regularly throughout the process and provided us with picture updates and requests for feedback. The turnaround was very quick and we couldn't be happier with our rings!"
"I ordered some custom earrings for my daughter -in-law for her birthday. I was sent some hand drawn sketches for approval. When they arrived, they were even more beautiful. She loves them!"
"Ahh the experience was terrific. Hsiang-Ting made my fiance's engagement ring. I approached her with many specific themes that I wanted to include in the ring, but I had very little knowledge of jewelry making. Hsiang-Ting was wonderfully patient and helpful as we went back and forth on many different looks and drawings until the perfect ring was crafted. When it arrived in the mail it was exactly what I envisioned. Sarah now walks into any room "ring first."..."
"I only provided my thought and idea when talking to HT at first time, because I wasn't quite sure what kind of ring I am looking for. However, HT showed me 4 amazing designs based on my words which are all beyond my imagination. After deciding my unique custom-made ring and paying the deposit, the making process was also efficient. The ring was far beyond the pictures could show. It's so beautiful and elegant. I definitely recommend HTY Jewelry no doubt. BTW, during the discussion, I asked her a lot of questions about the diamonds and rings...etc., she was always more than happy to answer my questions."
I made customized earnings based on the existing product line as my sister's birthday present, and she just loves it. The earrings have the right size and have a beautiful, astounding germs on it. The shopping experience is highly satisfied. The HTY Jewelry responded my request promptly. They also suggested me the suitable style of the earrings after I sent them my sister's picture.
Overall, the earrings and the service provided by the HTY Jewelry are excellent. I will definitely shop at the HTY Jewelry again!
