Although these testimonials are for bespoke Jewellery, the pieces were based on historical themes. I give as much attention to the manufacture of all our HJR range, whether made in 18 carat gold plated best English Pewter, silver, gold or bronze.
Beautiful brooch – gift for a friend who I know will be delighted! Mike was really helpful and worked round delivery dates to suit my holidays. Highly recommend this item and seller

This is a stunning piece! I love St Cuthbert’s Cross and I do not think it can get any better (since the original is not for sale 😉 )

Really lovely earrings, thanks. What a thrill to wear an authentic copy of some Roman earrings which were found not far from where I live. They arrived beautifully boxed, with an information card etc. and would make a lovely gift. I highly recommend this seller and hope to buy again.

Absolutely stunning, a birthday present for my reenactor partner and he is over the moon with it (and many people are very jealous of it!)

This pendant is absolutely stunning!!! A MUST for any Tennis lover! I purchased this as a Birthday gift for my Mom, who loves Wimbledon, and she has worn it every day since. Great length, beautiful detail & craft-work. Mike is so kind and answered any questions I had. Would definitely purchase from here again.

It has a nice weight for the size and hangs nicely. A useful addition to a dark age reenactor’s bling 🙂

When I saw a documentary that included the beautiful Aemilia ring, an artefact from Romano Britain, I wondered if I could have a reproduction of it made for my partner. My partner loves history so I thought this would make a fantastic gift as well as a very special symbol of my love for her. The result of an internet search was I found Historic Jewellery Reproduction and the website indicated that a reproduction of the Aemilia ring could be made, created from a mould of the ring itself! Soon I was in contact with Mike Shorer, an extraordinary jeweller.
Since I wanted this ring to be especial, I had the further thought that it would be wonderful if it could have my partner’s name on the ring instead of the original Roman woman’s name.
I wasn’t sure if such a thing was possible, but fortunately Mike said it was indeed possible and he generously agreed to this request. It was fascinating to hear from Mike that to create this customised design it would require saw blades as thin as a human hair.
Mike worked very hard on this ring. His careful work produced a ring that was perfection itself! When it arrived, both my partner and myself were delighted with this beauteous piece of art, a ring that means a lot to both of us.
Mr. Shorer is a skillful artisan, one whom I am glad is there for my future jewellery needs.

My wife recently purchased a bespoke piece of jewellery for my Birthday from Mike Shorer.I wanted an Anglo Saxon cross, with an old English phrase to be inscribed on it. This was to be the second piece of work that we have asked Mike to do, hence the reason we were returning.
It was a very personal piece of Jewellery to which Mike had no problems adapting to, to ensure that the lettering was right and that it fitted neatly onto the Cross.Unfortunately, the first attempt was too big for me to wear. However, the thing that struck me straight away was Mike’s customer service. Without any hassle we came to a mutual agreement and I put the cross back in the post.
Subsequently, Mike had to do a lot of rework, before he sent the item back to me.
The finished item, is just what I wanted with the appropriate adjustments made in the size. I am a very happy customer. Not just with the finished product in which a lot of skilled work has gone into. But also Mikes prompt response and customer service, to correct the initial work.
I appreciate the skill and effort and his prompt communications skills. I would recommend anyone use his services for his craftsmanship, quality and customer relations.
