Ainslie asked us to design an engagement ring
that was distinct and original. She wanted to
incorporate a number of diamonds into the ring
while maintaining a delicate and pretty look.
Marc combined these elements into his design to
create a carved and shapely form. Ainslie says:
“When the time finally came to have my 1980s engagement ring re-made I chose to have it re-designed incorporating my own solitaire diamond. After speaking with Marc and his staff I soon recognized their professional approach, and had no hesitation in commissioning Marc to design and make my new engagement ring.
Marc is a very skilled jeweller and designer and at all times he was respectful and understanding of my requirements and taste in jewellery, coming up with a design that was exactly what I had hoped for in every way and more. Needless to say I could not be more thrilled with how beautifully made my new ring is, which is of exceptional quality and flawless workmanship.
I would like to thank Marc and his team at Martinovich Exceptional Jewellers for being so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly which made the experience of purchasing my diamond ring so very exciting and pleasurable.”
Angela asked us to design a ring that was
classically simple with a touch of modern style.
Marc's design incorporated a shapely twist on a
classic style, providing the necessary sparkle
while maintaining an understated elegance.
Angela says, “I cannot say enough about my
experience with Martinovich Jewellers. My
solitaire ring is absolutely stunning. The
design work is beautiful and they designed a
ring that is unique.
They definitely came through for me with
fantastic quality and service and the ring
arrived in time for my wedding anniversary
considering the short notice I gave them. I
wouldn’t hesitate to buy from them again.
Thank you Martinovich Jewellers. You’ve been so
great to work with!”
Marc spent time with Linda and Jamie and during
the consultation process discovered that Linda
wanted a ring that incorporated modern bold
lines with delicate elements.
Marc's design resulted in a bold and
contemporary ring with a contrasting softness.
Linda and Jamie say, “When you make the decision
to get married it is so important when you
choose a jeweller that they delight in your
happiness and keep the momentum of such a
special occasion alive – and that's exactly what
Marc and his team did for us through their
exceptional personalised service and expertise.
We knew that we were in good hands when Marc
listened to our wishes and worked with us to
design a unique ring that would last forever.
The enjoyment that we experienced in being able
to choose the stones and knowing that we had a
ring that was never going to need recoating, nor
wear thin confirmed our decision in choosing
During the consultation process, Bernadette
indicated her preference for modern design but
wanted to retain a degree of softness and
movement. Marc skilfully incorporated these
elements into the design to balance the modern
and delicate elements and used an oval shaped
stone to create a distinctive centrepiece. This
ring exudes beauty and elegance.
Bernadette says, “When Doug and I became engaged
it was the most exciting and wonderful time.
This special time of planning, organising and
preparing for our wedding day started with the
We spent several hours with Marc Martinovich
discussing and crafting the ring that came to
encapsulate much that was meaningful to us. Marc
was fantastic to work with, very patient and
very creative, he listened and responded to our
ideas and created a ring that is stunning and
unique. The experience that we had and the ring
are simply perfect.
We enjoyed Marc’s special contribution to our
marriage and the ring is a wonderful reminder of
how lucky we are.”
Remaking an existing design meant Marc was able
to spend time with Zivvy offering advice on the
grade of stones and sourcing the perfect diamond
for Zivvy's engagement ring. Superb construction
and an exquisite stone resulted in this sublime
Zivvy says, “Marc’s passion for excellence and
individual perfection, facilitated by his
expertise, knowledge and craftsmanship brought
us our perfect ring!
We started in the wrong place and had two
‘miserably failed’ attempts at finding a quality
diamond ring through a large chain store. Our
predicament led to discussions with various
friends who recommended Martinovich Jewellers.
I guess what first steered us away from an
exclusive design store was mistakenly believing
it was going to be too expensive. We were
surprised to find that a relatively negligible
increase in cost led to a very pleasing increase
in overall quality and a significant increase in
Marc is a skilled designer, whether you are
completely lost, or you know what it is you are
after. I knew precisely what I wanted and I was
ecstatic to find someone who was prepared to
stick to my desired design. In fact, the
only changes Marc urged me to make were minor
ones that barely even altered the visual
appearance, but greatly improved the structural
integrity of the design.
The end result of Marc's expert effort was my
dream ring. It was just perfect so of course we
got Marc to craft the wedding band to match,
again working with my desires and his expertise,
to again come up with a perfect result.”
Marc worked closely with Kevin and Mel to find
out their personal taste.
Through the consultation progress, Marc
discovered that Mel wanted her ring to
include both delicate and bold elements. Marc's
design incorporated these elements into this
distinctive ring. According to friends of the
couple, this ring perfectly captures Mel’s
Kevin and Mel say, “We had experience of the
great quality products that Marc makes and
wanted to get something original, of excellent
quality and suited to our taste for our
engagement and wedding rings.
We are based in Auckland and worked through some
ring ideas via emailing and telephone calls. As
it worked out in the end, a half-day in a cafe
in Queenstown for the bride-to-be brainstorming
some final ideas of what we wanted cemented the
The end product is fabulous and of such good
quality we will be able to be hand them down to
our children's children.”
Bold, vibrant and vivacious best describe Jane's
taste. Marc worked closely with Jane to find
elements of design that reflected her taste and
helped her to select an asymmetrical stone that
provided impact, colour and a point of
Jane says, “After a courtship of 17 years my
partner and I decided to get married, and liked
the idea of a one-off, personalized handmade
ring rather than a conventional diamond ring and
We approached Marc Martinovich, jeweller, gave
him a broad outline of what we wanted, and were
most impressed with his patience,
professionalism and knowledge. After choosing my
preferred stone, I looked through numerous
photos of rings and picked out various details
In designing the ring, Marc also took into
account aspects of my personality, and discussed
with me at length what I liked and what suited
my hand. I considered the latter to be
important, as I don’t have pretty hands as such,
and wanted the ring to feel and look “just
right” for me, and symbolise our vows.
The end result is a unique, beautifully crafted
ring that I am delighted with, and I appreciate
possessing a lovely piece of jewellery that has
been specifically designed and made for me.”
Marc spent time with Chantelle exploring her
preferences. Chantelle particularly liked the
simplicity of clean modern design with curved
lines and form so Marc worked on aligning all
these elements in this modern and sophisticated
Jason and Chantelle say, “After we got engaged,
we decided to see Marc to design something
different and unique for an engagement ring. The
end results were unbelievable.
The stunning design, the amazing talent and
skill of such a beautiful ring, followed by an
equally spectacular wedding ring, blew us away.
The quality of workmanship is world class, even
other jewellers have commented on the beauty and
We have no hesitation in recommending Marc to
anyone. Thank you Marc, Nicola and Hayley for
such outstanding and professional service.”
