Whitefire is amazing! 8/28/2011

From the moment I walked in there to the the day I left with the engagement ring in hand I felt like I was treated like a prince! Malcom is amazing and a true master at what he does. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. They do great work! more

Thank you thank you thank you 7/23/2011

I am writing to thank you for the lovely job you did on my fiancee's engagement ring. When we came to Whitefire, we were disenchanted with the other jewelry stores we had been to (both chain and independent). Others had brushed us off when they learned that we wouldn't be buying our center stone from them. They looked at the smaller family stone with which I had proposed to my fiancee and told us that, "it would be hard to find a setting for a stone that size," and commented on its odd shape and flaws. From the moment we walked into Whitefire and met Malcolm, we knew we had found the right person to craft an engagement setting for our stone. Instead of sneering at its size, or pressuring us to purchase something we couldn't afford, Malcolm took time to tell my fiancee and I about the stone and the history of the cut. As he explained the stone's shape and age and told us that what the other jewelry stores had referred to as "flaws" were the result of the the stone being hand-cut about 200 years ago, we knew we were in the right place. His demeanor was never rushed, and we felt that we were treated no differently than someone who planned to spend ten times as much as we did. Malcolm met with us several times to make sure he had a design that my fiancee would love, and ultimately, he created a setting for my family stone that exceeded our expectations. He did a beautiful job of creating a setting that looks like something the stone might originally have been placed in. The hand engraving was exactly what my fiancee wanted, and the price was within our budget. I never thought I could afford a custom design, but now, I'd never consider going anywhere else. My fiancee is already talking about how she wants Malcolm to design our wedding bands. Thanks so much for an amazing experience. We'll be back for sure, and will recommend Whitefire to anyone and everyone we know! more

The place to go for creative, untraditional, jewelry design 6/25/2011

I worked with Malcolm on my engagement ring in March-April. I wanted an untraditional ring, with an antique look and only sapphires. The abundance of positive reviews on Citysearch let me know Whitefire was the place to go. I first reached out with an email through their website and Malcolm called me shortly after to talk about what I was looking for and what budget I wanted to be at. I brought a lot of pictures of designs I liked to our first meeting and Malcolm spent about an hour sketching out designs after looking over the pictures and a book of standard stone sizes (so he could make a new design that wouldn't require custom cutting, which takes more time & money). It was a lot of fun watching him sketch all these awesome designs with just paper & pencil--it actually looked liked sparkling stones! Even though it was just a pencil sketch, I knew when we had the final ring--it looked perfect. The computer-generated images later on were fun to see too. I'm glad they had final measurements on them since the sketch couldn't be exact. It took about 8 weeks for the whole process but it was well worth it. I love my ring & highly recommend Whitefire to anyone looking for any type of custom jewelry. They're creative, professional, and help you make good decisions so you don't spend thousands more than you need to! more

Whitefire: Simply Incredible. 6/4/2011

I couldn't be more impressed and pleased with the high level of service and final product that Whitefire offers and recommend them to anyone looking to create their own custom engagement ring. Five minutes into my initial meeting with Malcolm Brown of Whitefire at their office, I knew this was the place that could deliver the perfect custom engagement ring of the highest quality that my bride to be would love. Before getting into any specifics of what I thought I was looking for with the ring, Malcolm took the time to ask thoughtful questions about it's intended recipient's personality and lifestyle in effort to design a ring suited just for her and kept this all in mind throughout the process. We outlined a rough budget and from there his expertise in jewelery design truly shined though his surprisingly realistic notebook sketches in literally translating an initial idea into something tangible and completely spectacular. He is a modest guy, but I'll say that Malcolm has to simply be the best at what he does as he always took time to share his expertise and advice and was sincerely determined to far exceed my expectations. Flat out, he made the "buying an engagement ring experience" incredibly fun! So much fun in fact, that my bride to be and I can't wait to return to design her wedding band to compliment Whitefire's already amazing work. more

Whitefire sparkles like the perfect diamond engagement ring 6/2/2011

We ended up at Whitefire because my now fiancée was opposed to getting a traditional diamond engagement ring (and that is one of the reasons I love her). So instead of shopping for the biggest rock, we decided we would use a family heirloom to create a meaningful, intimate, and elegant ring. In just a few conversations Malcolm, from Whitefire, mocked up something more amazing than I could have envisioned or had seen ANYWHERE else. And the price was reasonable and the entire experience professional. We plan on having a few new heirlooms designed with the remaining stones and can't wait to see what the team comes up with. If you need any jewelry, work with Whitefire. more

Excellent 4/28/2011

I visited Whitefire looking to create a custom pendant for my bride-to-be. The staff at Whitefire gave me the opportunity to work closely with them in designing the pendant. They seemed to go out of their way to provide me with their knowledge and expertise while respecting my personal ideas and budget. In the end, their hard work led to the creation of a beautiful piece that I was able to give to my wife on our wedding day. The experience and the resulting product couldn't have been better. Whitefire is a professionally run organization that will meet and exceed your expectations. Visit them soon if you are in the market for jewelry. more

Great place, great people!!!!! 3/30/2011

I was searching for the perfect engagement ring. I was going to be in Austin for business and stumbled upon the website for Whitefire and decided to give them a call to schedule an appointment. I spoke to Joseph Villarreal on the phone and I shared with him the details of the diamond that I was looking for. Once we sat down to look at the diamond that Joseph had found for me at no point during our meeting did he push me to buy it or to sell me something more expensive or something that I was not looking for nor did he exaggerate the characteristics of the diamond; he was not a salesperson but a connoisseur sharing his information with me. He actually found a better diamond that I had asked for and he kept his compromise of working within my budget. He was very patient and was extremely diligent in his responses and explanations of everything that had to do with the diamond at hand as well as diamonds in general. I was more than pleased with the diamond I purchased but more so with the service I got at Whitefire. Joseph was great and I would recommend Whitefire to anybody who wants quality service as well as quality products. more

Wonderful Staff and Service and Beautiful, Unique Jewelry 3/16/2011

I went to WhiteFire on a whim, after moving to Austin TX, from Boston MA. I had spent a few months in Boston going to high end commercial and family owned jewelry stores, and being discouraged by the very high prices, and overwhelmed by the seemingly endless barrage of information. WhiteFire was the first place I called when I arrived in Austin. When I called WhiteFire Diamonds, and spoke to Malcolm Brown, he made the process very simple and laid everything out right in front of me. He got all the hard questions out of the way, budget, time-line, etc. Once that was settled, it made the experience incredibly stress free. There were no sales pitches, or being pushed in any one direction, they were all about making me comfortable, and finding the perfect engagement ring. My circumstances were unique in that I approached WhiteFire with a family engagement ring that was given to me by my Fiance's Mother. My initial idea was to sell this ring in order to buy a new ring that had a different aesthetic, an antique design that I knew my Fiance favored. Malcolm offered his thoughts and came up with an idea for a custom setting that incorporated all the diamonds in the old ring. He hand drafted it on the spot, and came up with something truly breathtaking, unique, and meaningful. 2 Months later, I had the most amazing engagement ring I'd ever seen, and it made my Fiance very very happy. I would recommend WhiteFire Jewelry to anyone. Don't bother going anywhere else. more

Very happy with my decision to go to Whitefire 3/7/2011

Whitefire and I have just completed a very special project that took about three months but was definitely worth it. I lost my husband to cancer some time ago and wanted to create a piece of jewelry out of my and his engagement/wedding rings, something that I can always wear (but not another ring). I had yellow and rose golds, a diamond solitaire and diamond bagettes. Now try and put it together in a new piece when you are not even sure what this new piece should be! Another complication was that Whitefire is in Austin while I am in Houston. Well, we did it all by mail and email and to my own surprise it worked. Now I have a fantastic diamond pendant, with the solitaire and bagettes set in the very pale rose gold (a mix of my yellow and rose golds). The design is exquisite and absolutely one of a kind. Malcolm was a pleasure to work with and very patient with me. :) more

Great experience and beautiful jewelry! 2/17/2011

My fiancé went to Joseph at Whitefire to buy my engagement ring. He couldn't decide on the setting he liked, so he bought the center diamond and proposed to me with a solitaire ring. He had an appointment set for us the next day to pick out the setting and the wedding band. Let me just say it was so much fun picking it out!! Joseph was extremely helpful. He pointed out things about different settings that I would have never thought about. He made the whole process so easy and so much fun. The diamond is beautiful and it sparkles nonstop! Joseph told me it would be 15 business days for my new setting to come in. Sure enough, it came in right on time. My fiancé surprised me with the new setting with the diamond and I was blown away! It is so beautiful!!! I can't say enough great things about Whitefire!! more

Clarity indeed! 1/12/2011

Thanks to Joseph Villareal, professional gemologist and jeweler. I was given a beautiful pair of earrings as a gift, and brought them into Wildfire to be appraised so that I could add them to my insurance policy. Fortunately for me, Joseph was able to advise me that insurance was not necessary, as the earrings were CZ! Needless to say, he helped give me the clarity I needed to know it was time to get rid of a lying boyfriend and move on with my life! Thanks Joseph and Wildfire! Hope to see you soon! more

Very pleasant experience and lovely ring!! 12/3/2010

I had an engagement ring made recently from existing stones. I was completely in the dark about where to begin to have a ring designed and went to visit with Malcolm. I immediately felt welcome, and he worked with us to make a really beautiful, hand engraved ring. The process was pleasant and easy and the ring was done very quickly. I highly recommend White Fire, especially if the world of jewelry seems intimidating to you, they couldn't have put me more at ease! more

Great place to buy a diamond! 11/18/2010

I worked with Malcolm Brown. I was a walk in. Even though I had not made an appointment, I was treated like an extremely valued client. I am by no means a big spender or a connosiseur of precious stones but Malcolm had me feeling like an educated buyer after I walked out of our first meeting. He sat me down and discussed diamonds with me and I enjoyed our talk and the things I learned about them. I bought my engagement ring from him and my fiancee returned to have it sized for her. Everything was done quickly, efficiently, and on schedule. I will return ro Whitefire when I'm in the market to buy another diamond or any expensive rock for that matter. more

Malcolm took the time to make my ring perfect 10/10/2010

Malcolm took his time and drew multiple drawings with me until I had exactly what I wanted for my fiance. I had an idea in my mind how I wanted it to look and he worked on it until it was perfect. I got exactly what I wanted and my fiance was very pleased. They even worked with her after I proposed to make sure the fit was right. Very professional, precise and great people to work with. I would recommend Whitefire to all my friends and family. We liked the service so much we will be using them for my ring as well. more

Whitefire creates fantastic fine jewelry 9/21/2010

I am a graduate gemologist who specializes in fine jewelry sales. In the last few months I have consulted with Malcolm to bring my customers to their dream piece of jewelry. He's done a spectacular tanzanite ring using diamonds from my client's own rings. He was able to set the stones as if they were all the same size. They all looked perfectly matched! I had sold an almost 2 carat diamond to another customer this past Christmas. His wife spent 5 months deciding exactly how she wanted it set. Malcolm produced a beautiful platinum and diamond ring that represented every preference that she had. I just love the high quality and the attention to detail that Whitefire creates. Thank you, Malcolm, Judy Darnell,G.G more

What a great surpise! 9/4/2010

I had been looking for a special piece of jewelry all over the internet and available stores in my area. I found something close at Whitefire and I asked them to customize it for me. And then did a beautiful job and at a very good price. I couldn't be happier with my diamond pendant. And I am thrilled to tell people it was custom made just for me. Thanks again Malcomn. Gini more

One-of-a-kind jewelry from a friendly, reliable business 9/4/2010

As engagement ring shopping goes, Whitefire made the process so unexpectedly easy and even fun. I wanted something absolutely unique without having to pay the price of a car. After weeks of searching (dozens of websites, snooty mall stores, dinky holes in the wall) I finally came across Whitefire doing a search online. Whitefire offers some of the most interesting jewelry designs I've ever seen, way beyond the predictable standard loops. In spite of my skepticism of buying an engagement ring long distance and online, the folks at Whitefire were extremely personable, consistently helpful and their money back guarantee reassured me. It was a great decision, and I HIGHLY recommend Whitefire for anybody looking for beautiful unique pieces and reliable online jewelry shopping. more

Amazing Custom Jewelry! 8/13/2010

My fiance and I had been looking around for sapphire engagement rings and couldn't find anything we liked except for a picture on the internet. So we brought the picture in to Malcolm at White Fire and he helped us design a ring almost exactly like the picture, but BETTER! It is absolutely amazing, and everything I dreamed of. We had several meetings with Malcolm and he took great care to make sure we were happy with every detail every step of the way. Now I know I have a one of a kind ring that I get compliments on every week and absolutely love. I would recommend this place to anyone! more

Fine Artists and Craftsmen 6/30/2010

My Fiance and I started our search for someone to make the engagement ring I had envisioned. We have friends in the jewelery business and they all said the design was rather complicated and told us that they thought we needed someone with real experence in complicated designs or frankly that we should find something that was pre-made that was close. We met with both Whitefire and a competitor here in Austin that also designs custom diamond jewlery. After several meetings, Malcom had prepared detailed drawings and provided us with a wealth of information about the various metal choices and options we had as he designed the engagement ring set. With the competition we had basically nothing, no drawings, and ballbark estimates of cost that were almost twice that of Whitefire's and a lot of mis-information about our metal choices. What was most refreshing was that even though we already had the center diamond (a family heirloom), Malcom gave us the attention and commitment he would have given any customer that was also going to buy the "big" diamond from Whitefire. Malcom is a true artist, and his personal pride in his work was inspiring. Malcom told us he wanted to make our vision a reality and he was gonna do what he could to make it fit our budget. He provided us a lot of options on how we could save costs and still have a quality design. In the end, we went "all the way" with the options and had the rings of our dreams. All of this was possible because of Whitefire and Malcom and his personal commitment and talent in jewelery design. It was a real pleasure to do business with him. Pros: Personal Attention, Commitment to Quality, Value for Money more

No Place Like It! 6/19/2010

When I found whitefire, I had been looking for a wedding band for quite some time. I went from jewelry shop to jewelry shop and could never find anything I liked. Everything looked the same and the salespeople had no idea what they were talking about. I finally decided that custom was probably going to be the answer for me. I did an internet search for custom jewelers in Austin and found this place. I decided I would give it a shot; however, I wasn't too anxious due to the many unsuccessful attempts I had already had so I put ring shopping on hold for a bit. Not too long after, I ran into someone that spoke very highly of Whitefire so I decided to start the search again. I went in and was treated with the utmost respect. I had no idea what it was that I wanted, but I knew what I didn't want. I wasn't sure if we would get anywhere since I am a very indecisive person, but they took my thoughts and put it on paper. They came up with several different sketches of possible wedding bands and finally came to one that I loved! It was perfect! We went ahead and sent in custom order and within a month it was here. I was very nervous when I went to pick it up, but when they showed it to me, I was awestruck! It was absolutely amazing. It was totally me! I could not be more pleased with my decision to go with Whitefire. Both my husband and my ring look great! I would highly recommend them to anyone! Pros: Amazing customer service, experts in the field, fine quality more
