Sophie’s creativity and originality continues to astound me and it’s always exciting to browse the shop or peruse the website see her latest creations. I’ve been so spoilt over the years with my ‘Book of love’ 10th Anniversary gift from my husband, my stunning ‘Black Mountains’ pendant from my aunt/mother-in-law (designed by Sophie and Emily) and lots of beautiful enamel pieces. Sophie’s ‘treasures’ make fantastic gifts and I love Rex’s pieces of eight, a perfect personalised gift for friends. The attention to detail and quality of finish on Sophie’s work is always superb. Customer service has always been exceptional; helpful, friendly, welcoming and efficient. Sophie, Raph, Leela (who I miss!) and Emily have all been wonderful – the team even went the extra mile recently for which I was extremely touched and grateful ~ Clairey May 2019.


I love my ring, thank you very much – I can’t stop looking at it! ~ Leanne February 2016


Its amazing! Thank you. I refrained for about a day before caving in and giving it to Birdy! She is thrilled – many brownie points for me! ~ Chris October 2015


Sophie! Christopher presented me with us & our new house in silver last night and its beautiful – sentiment and crafted so delicately…Thank you will wear it in anticipation of our moving in & send you a pic when we do. xxx ~ Leanne October 2015


Just to let you know ‘the eagle has just literally landed’ and I was here and have just opened up all of my beautiful packages with whoops of joy oh joy!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! xx You’ve done a FABULOUS job on transforming what was a rather old fashioned set wouldn’t you say? That I hardly ever wore, into a super-duper set which I will wear more often than not. I LOVE everything, everything is just so gorgeous and beautiful with a touch of the unusual which I love, and the rings fit perfectly! The settings for the rings were so the right choice and thank you so much for the replacement emeralds – gorgeous. Yipeeee! When the postman just asked me whether it was anything nice I said yes indeed – jewels all for me! However, not from a secret admirer sadly ;( – can’t have everything!!! Thanks so much Sophie, I really do appreciate all of your hard work on this, you always do such a grand job and I know you are a busy bee so huge, huge thanks ~ Catherine August 2015


Thank you Sophie- as a Sherlock Holmes fan from the age of 8, having my very own door to 221b is just magical. I am already planning outfits around it! All best, Julie November 2014


I really want to thank you for crafting this amazing peace of jewellry for Alex`s birthday. She loved it – and so did I. Also I want to thank you for putting up with me – bothering you to get it done earlier than you expected, and for getting the job done in time. The cherry on the cream of your work was the engraving really – why didnt you tell? 🙂 Nevertheless I was a really pleasant surprise to see it on the item. Alex and me were ever so happy with the marvelous work of your engraver.
Thanks for helping to make Alex`s 30th birthday something that will be never forgotten. Yours, Fabian May 2014


I received the necklaces safely thank you and THEY ARE SPECTACULAR!!! I am so very, VERY pleased with them, they looked quite beautiful in your photo, but when I opened the boxes, they really are simply stunning. The detail you have included is utterly mind boggling and the oxidized silver along with the gold makes them sparkle so much I can’t take my eyes off them. I’ve worn mine for the first time today and already I’ve had three people compliment me on the necklace – I had to smile when I noticed their eyes keep flicking to it while in conversation 🙂 ~ Jules October 2013


Exquisite jewellery made by a small team of friendly, helpful and super creative, awesome people. Their jewellery is all made with love, making it that extra bit more special. Cannot recommend Honeybourne jewellers highly enough ~ Emma June 2019 


A stunningly beautiful crow necklace was commissioned for me by a very special person as a birthday gift, and knowing I had worked with Honeybourne Jewellery on some amazing jewellery a few years ago, went to Sophie and the team for this bespoke piece. I am beyond over the moon with it and was absolutely thrilled when I opened the box on my birthday. The Crow has always been one of my favourite films as I first saw it at a very influential age and it left a lasting impression on me. It teaches you to appreciate everything in your life and how important even the little things are. I first walked into the Honeybourne shop in Ventnor in 2013 and this is the fifth Honeybourne piece I now own. The work is always beyond compare and I have received so many compliments while wearing the pieces as their jewellery is always breathtaking ~ Jules May 2019


 Just received my latest bespoke order , just beautiful. The quality of work and friendly service from Sophie and the team can’t be beaten. We’ve marked so many important occasions with Sophie’s super creations as there’s nothing quite as fab . Thank you Sophie x ~ Edwina April 2019


 Sophie and the team went above and beyond what we was expecting. We asked for the impossible and they achieved more than expected. We visit every year when we go to the isle of white and wouldn’t want to get my jewellery from anywhere else. Why have factory when you can have bespoke? Thank you again for your efforts. ~ Tanya April 2019

I only ever wear Honeybourne jewellery because nothing else quite compares. The quality and craftsmanship is exquisite – beautiful, original pieces that are a joy to own or gift – they never fail to delight. Sophie and her team are a lovely bunch and a visit to their treasure trove of a shop is a real treat. Highly recommended 💛 ~ Jax February 2019

Sophie and the team at Honeybourne Jewellery are all extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I’ve shopped there on a number of occasions for bespoke pieces and all work is completed to the highest of standards and exactly how you want it. I’m totally in love with my latest bangle and new set of halo studs! Thank you guys! ~ Cordelia January 2019

I have been a loyal customer of Honeybourne Jewellery for many years after discovering the beautiful shop while on holiday. I live in Scotland and have bought several pieces online for myself, friends and family and have also commissioned a bespoke piece. We are never disappointed. The quality and uniqueness of the jewellery is, for me, unparalleled. Sophie and Emily are really helpful over the phone and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended. ~ Linda December 2018

I’ve used Honeybourne Jewellery many times and can’t praise them highly enough. Sophie and the team produce beautiful pieces and the attention to detail is outstanding. One piece in particular was a surprise for someone special and discretion was key. Through carefully planned and executed messages and updates we managed to keep the secret until the big reveal. Outstanding quality, customer care and dedication. ~ Michael December 2018


I LOVE this tiny shop and its treasure trove of exquisite hand-made jewellery. The shop always looks beautiful inside and out and is a joy to browse in. I have bought numerous items from Sophie over the years since she has had her shop, and I love them. Sophie and her small team make gorgeous jewellery at reasonable prices, as well as commissioning bespoke pieces. ~ Suzie December 2018

Honeybourne jewellery has brought nothing but joy to me and my loved ones…. I have purchased many ready made treats for family and friends but also have had beautiful bespoke pieces made which I will treasure always. I totally recommend Sophie and her team for producing truly special and personalised jewellery. ~ Sol December 2018

Sophie is a fantastic silversmith and jewellery designer with a great little team behind her. They not only produce a superb range of jewellery, but will produce pieces which are personalised. Sophie spends time with her customers to produce wonderful designs, often using gems, gold or silver that the customer has provided, especially if the items had a sentimental value to that person. I cannot recommend them highly enough. ~ Danny December 2018

Fantastic bespoke jewellery. Staff cannot do enough for you. It took me several visits to decide what I wanted in design etc and they were very helpful and accommodating. I loved the design and the workmanship of my jewellery and would refer any one to them for a first class job. ~ Sylvia December 2018
