“We looked for a long time to find an antique engagement ring and were so lucky to come across Friar House which has an amazing range of beautiful antique rings.  I picked one that I absolutely love and I have had lots of comments on how unique and lovely it is.  The staff were great – friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, plus it far better value for money than anywhere else we looked.  I would definitely recommend making the trip to Friar House to find an original and really special ring.  We will be back for our wedding rings too.”

” I just wanted to email to say thanks to the two ladies who helped me choose the perfect ring for me on Friday.  I eventually got the 1920’s panel ruby one, but the reason I am emailing is that you showed me great patience and respect when I was trying to make up my mind- which I truly appreciate.  Thanks for spending the time with me and my husband…. I really have a unique piece to remember my Grandad by.”

” From my first contact via email through to visiting the shop the service I received from the Friar House team was second to none. An excellent website detailing all items in stock made it easy for me to select those I wanted to view. When I arrived at the shop I found both Gail and Susan made the whole experience of choosing my engagement ring a joy. They were professional throughout with a wealth of knowledge that they were happy to share. Best of all I found them very friendly and approachable, something I have found lacking in other jewellery establishments. They offered good advice and alternatives and allowed me to take my time and try on as many items as I needed to to make the right choice. The ring I finally chose is absolutely beautiful, I love knowing that it has given others pleasure before me and that it has some history already associated with it. In addition to helping me make the right choice Friar House was able to get the ring re-sized ready for me to take home later in the day, accompanied with a valuation for insurance purposes – both unexpected but very welcome bonuses! The location of Friar House in Battle is special too, although an hour or so from London it is definitely worth the trip, I would recommend this Jeweller to anyone looking for unusual antique jewellery and first class service.”

” My friend and I journeyed to Battle to see the 1066 site. My friend spotted you and soon we were gazing entranzed by at all the beautiful things in your window. I fell in love with a Victorian bangle bracelet and my friend a beautiful gate bracelet. We are both delighted with our purchases, and also enjoyed meeting and talking with you. We have spent much time browsing your great website! I’m so glad that I found you and I hope that many others do!”

“We arrived to the beautiful old Jewellery Shop in Battle, through a pre-booked appointment, where we were shown a truly outstanding selection of engagement rings.  From start to finish the attention to detail both Sue and Gail gave us, the simply phenomenal quality and range of rings made the whole visit the most exciting part of our engagement to date.  We were presented with not simply a small handful of rings to choose from, but an array of beautiful and very attractive pieces of antique jewellery, all offering a mysterious and exciting history so bereft in modern high street jewellers.  We were extremely grateful for the personal approach and not simply a desire to persuade us to buy the most expensive ring on offer.  Friar House also offered by far the best value for money we had found before trying on rings, so much so that we cancelled other appointments nearby and settled on a simply outstanding ring.  The best bit (apart from the ring ofcourse!) Remembering where and when we bought it.  Highly recommended.”

Having searched high and low for a quality and authentic ring, I luckily stumbled upon Friar House from Battle.  The selection of unique and stunning rings coupled with the fantastic support and service from their staff made the decision for me to use them very easy.  I will certainly be using them again in the future and would recommend them to anyone.

A “Gallery of Gorgeousness” is how I’d describe the Friar House website and when I saw just the coral ring in a Victorian setting that I’ve been searching for I was delighted, but a little hesitant to buy something sight unseen.  However, the friendly, professional and knowledgeable assistance provided by all the staff and the additional photographs emailed, quickly alleviated my concerns and before long, with a minimum of fuss, the ring travelled “Down Under” to its new home.  It was a perfect fit and the colour was true to the photographs.  I’m delighted with my Friar House shopping experience and will continue to browse their website for other lovely items.

“I had a great experience when purchasing a beautiful antique engagement ring from Friar House.  The service was personal throughout the entire process.  Friar House accommodated my requests for additional photographs and payment through a service I preferred, even though the transaction would take a few additional days.  Although the photographs on line were great, it was much more beautiful when I received it.  The ring arrived safely packaged and beautifully polished.  I would highly recommend Friar House.  Later that day she said “yes” and is elated with the ring.”

My fiancee and I recently bought a beautiful engagement ring from Friar House and we couldn’t be happier. The price was very reasonable for the quality and the service provided by Friar House was fantastic. We were drawn to the ring because it is an antique art deco piece with a lot of character, which is  becoming less common in the United States. Being in the U.S., I was able to keep in contact through e-mail during the entire process and everyone was extremely helpful, even sending pictures modeling the ring so we could get an idea of the size and how it looks while being worn. The process of buying the ring was very simple and straightforward; after a brief visit to my local bank, payment was confirmed  and the ring was mailed almost immediately. I received the ring less than a week later and proposed the next day. Since then my fiancee has not stopped showing it off  whenever she can. We are especially pleased with the elegance and classic aesthetic of the ring which sets it apart from many of the more popular engagement ring styles. Buying from Friar House was a great experience which I would recommend to anyone looking for an antique piece of jewelry or engagement ring. (Destination USA).
